Schools: Local Teams Bring Home Titles

The Northport High School field hockey team took home the New York State Class A championship following an undefeated 21-0 season, just one day after defeating Clarence High School in the NYS Class A semifinals.

Olivia McKenna scored the only goal of the game with an assist from Shannon Smith.

The team captured the Long Island championship last season but couldn’t play a state championship due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The team coined the hashtag “#NotDoneYet.”

“This team encompasses what it means to be a Northport High School Tiger athlete,” said Mark Dantuno, director of health, physical education and athletics. “They play their hearts out and their undefeated record reflects that. The commitment of their
coaches, their parents and of course, the students themselves is what makes this team extraordinary.”
