The high school action on Long Island continued throughout the weekend as most teams played matches on Friday afternoon, but some also had double duty, playing matches on Saturday as well as the girls high school season is in full swing.

In Conference I in Nassau County, the Blazers of Great Neck North knocked off Locust Valley 7-0 to snap a two-match losing streak. Alina Lyakhov led the way with a 6-3, 6-2 win over Caroline Mangan at second singles.

Great Neck North will visit defending county champions Manhasset in its next match.

The Chiefs of Massapequa remained undefeated on the year, downing Long Beach 6-1 in a Conference III-B contest to improve to 4-0. Cristina DaCosta and Cameron Ahlers anchored the Massapequa victory with a straight sets win at first doubles.
