Connetquot High School Boys Basketball Team Earns 2018 Suffolk County Playoff Bid 

The Connetquot High School boys basketball team earned a Suffolk County Playoff invitation with their Jan. 26 win against the first-place Northport High School team by a final score of 43-41, earning their 10th win of the season.

Most recently, Connetquot hosted Central Islip High School on Jan. 31 to continue the regular season schedule. 

The T-Birds proved to be a challenge for the visitors early on in the game due to their incredible offense and defense. However, Central Islip took home the 73-58 win, maintaining their first-place League II standing. Taylor Stepanek had an outstanding offensive game, leading the T-Birds with 23 points, as Seth Goumba added 21 of his own. 

The T-Birds have two games remaining on the regular schedule and look to get back on track for the Suffolk County basketball championship tournament scheduled to begin on Feb. 15.
