It was still a pretty good season with something to look forward to next year...The Downey & McGinley kids should be dominant next season...By the way, Mr. Patch, do you know how the Mepham girls hoop team is doing?...I heard they are 13-1 in conference and 15-2 overall, ranked #5 in Nassau County, the #3 seed in the playoffs and feature three All-County players...Is that true???...If so, how come the community hasn't heard about it???
