The Manhasset girls basketball team enjoyed a dream season in 2022-23, winning in dramatic fashion in both the Nassau County playoffs, and then the Long Island title game.

In the county semifinals the Indians squeaked by 2, 41-39, then blew out Lynbrook, 53-38 behind outstanding play from leaders Caitlin Barrett and Mia LoPinto.

Then in the Long Island championship game, Manhasset (24-2) made its biggest escape yet. The Indians trailed by six with 1:10 left to Shoreham-Wading River, but stunningly rallied to tie the game and force OT, where Manhasset won, 58-51. It was Manhasset’s first L.I. championship since 1993.

But the dream run finally ended in the state semis, as Canandaigua Academy scored a 55-42 win.

North Shore also had a terrific season in girls hoops, getting the No.3 seed in Class A but fell to Floral Park in the quarterfinals.
