The Bears celebrate the 1995 County Championship as time expires

On this day 21 years ago, the boys’ lacrosse team won a thriller over rival Comsewogue to advance to their second consecutive County Championship. Here is the recap of the game from Newsday.


The Bears Make It 2 in a Row Stony Brook wins Class B thriller

It’s hard to imagine a coach having a five-year plan on the high school level. But that’s exactly what John Kenney implemented when he started the Stony Brook varsity lacrosse program six years ago. After a few mediocre seasons the plan worked to perfection last year when Stony Brook won the Class B title in its fifth year. But the challenge for Kenney this season may have been even greater. He had to prove Stony Brook wasn’t a one-shot wonder; to make sure the accomplishments of last season would not be diminished by an early exit in the playoffs. And with yesterday’s thrilling 7-6 victory over Comsewogue in the Class B semifinals at Hauppauge, the Bears (15-2) assured they will be respected. They will face Half Hollow Hills West to decide the B champion at 3:30 p.m. Saturday at Hofstra.


The Bears went on to defeat Half Hollow Hills West in the title game for a second consecutive year, 8-7, to cement their place as one of the best teams on Long Island.

Sam Hanchett, Jake Kenney, Spencer Niebuhr, and Jim Bickley made the All-County Team while Dave Metz, Ed Hughey, and Derek Kenney joined them on the All-Division II 1st Team. 2nd Team recognition went to Evan Tiska, Luke Fischer and Eaghmon Banks. John Kenney and Dave Castle were deservedly named the Division II Coaches of the Year.
