After the first week of varsity sports playoffs, a few teams remain standing this second weekend, with football, field hockey and cross country teams playing this weekend. Here's a preview of what's in store:
The Panthers disposed of Bellport last weekend to advance to the Div. III semifinals against No. 3 Westhampton at Miller Place High School Nov. 17 at 1 p.m.
The Panthers dream season continues. After winning the Suffolk Class B Championship Monday, the team won the Long Island Championship over Manhasset over the week and will attempt to win a state title this weekend in Syracuse. They will face Pittsford-Sutherland in the semis Saturday at 5:30 p.m. and if they win, will play for the championship Sunday at 2 p.m.
Four kids from Miller Place qualified for the 2012 New York State Federation Cross Country Championships, which will be held at Bowdoin Park, Wappingers Falls, on Saturday. All four are individual qualifiers for class B (Place and time at 2012 NYSPHSAA Championships at Elma Course, Buffalo, NY this past Nov. 10):
