FOOTBALL: Several area teams made the playoffs, but the only public school team to win a round made it all the way to the Long Island Championship game.
Competing in Conference IV, North Shore High School went undefeated in the regular season and captured its second straight Nassau championship, beating West Hempstead in the title game.
The Vikings could not quite defend their LIC, though, losing to Suffolk champ Bayport-Blue Point, 35-7 in the championship game.
Chaminade once again shone on the gridiron as well, but fell to St. Anthony’s in the CHSAA AAA semifinals, 41-15.
Port Washington, New Hyde Park, Manhasset and Mineola all made the postseason but lose their opening games.
