Gregg Sarra's Big 10 (11/23)

1. ST. ANTHONY'S FOOTBALL The Friars put the exclamation point on another undefeated season with a 43-21 win over Iona Prep for the school's ninth CHSFL Class AAA championship in the past 10 years. Senior quarterback Charlie Raffa threw for four touchdowns, including three to standout wide receiver Mike Kensil.

2. MASSAPEQUA GIRLS SOCCER Without leading scorer Rosie DiMartino, Massapequa beat Baldwinsville, 2-1, in the state semifinal and Webster Thomas, 2-0, in the Class AA final to take home the program's first title since 2005. Senior midfielder Amanda Reverberi was named outstanding player and Emma Lee Meyer was named outstanding keeper.

The Indians had a challenging road to their second state championship in three seasons. Johnathan Interiano scored and Herson Guzman made 11 saves in a 1-0 win over Scarsdale in the Class AA semifinal. Interiano and Frank Guzman scored for the Indians in a 2-0 win over Baldwinsville in the final. Brentwood appeared in the state final for the fifth time in six seasons.

4. CHAMINADE BOYS SOCCER The Flyers won their third CHSAA title in five seasons. Kory Seibt scored with 1:32 left in regulation in a 1-0 win over Iona Prep in the state semifinals. Jon Stallone scored with 3:54 left in the second overtime in a 1-0 win over St. Francis Prep in the state final.

5. NORTH SHORE GIRLS CROSS COUNTRY The Vikings achieved two program milestones, winning the Class A NYSPHSAA championship and finishing third at the Federation championships.

The No. 5 seed in the Nassau playoffs knocked off South Side, a perennial Class A power and the 2009 state champ, in the Nassau final.

The Patriots won their 19th consecutive Suffolk title beating Connetquot, 422-359. Ward Melville won two of the 12 events, with Shannon Lampe taking first in the 100-yard backstroke (57.51) and Taylor DaSilva, Jessica Fabrizio, Alex Donnelly and Lampe winning the 400 freestyle relay in 3:43.91.

8. GARDEN CITY GIRLS SWIMMING The Trojans followed up their 12th consecutive Nassau title with a strong performance at the Federation state championships. Megan Zarriello took third in the 200 freestyle (1:52.46) and second in the 500 free (4:56.56).

9. ST. ANTHONY'S GIRLS VOLLEYBALL Earned the CHSAA state championship with a 3-0 win over Sacred Heart.

10. GARDEN CITY FIELD HOCKEY The Trojans (18-1-1) fell short of a state title for the second straight year, losing in the Class B final to Lakeland.
