Basketball star banks 1,000th point

Before a cheering crowd, Hampton Bays High School senior MacKenzie Tyler reached a milestone in her basketball career by scoring her 1,000th point on Jan. 23. She had been just seven points shy of the goal prior to the home game against Bayport-Blue Point.

“We are very proud of MacKenzie for reaching this benchmark,” said Drew Walker, director of health, physical education and athletics. 

MacKenzie is a three-sport athlete. In addition to basketball, she plays varsity golf and varsity softball and serves as captain of all three teams. Her titles include All-County and All-League for basketball, most valuable player for golf, and All-County and most valuable player for softball. 

When not on the field or court, she participates in student council, the Leo’s Club, Key Club, Varsity Club and Future Business Leaders of America. 


Basketball Star Honored 

To inspire student-athletes and pay tribute to one of its own, the athletic department of the Hampton Bays School District honored former Hampton Bays High School basketball star William Harvey (Class of 1979) at a ceremony on Feb. 1.

As part of the event, a banner celebrating Harvey’s athletic accomplishments was dedicated by the Men’s Basketball League, and the varsity basketball team, athletic department and Town of Southampton presented him with certificates of achievement.

“Mr. Harvey is an example of grace,” said Superintendent of Schools Lars Clemensen. 

In accepting the accolades, Harvey told the crowd that he was humbled by the honor. “None of this would have been possible without great coaches, teammates and friends,” he said. 

During Harvey’s tenure in Hampton Bays, he set a number of impressive basketball records, including averaging 25 points per game, scoring a total of 1,664 career points, scoring the high number of points in one game (62), holding two national free throw records for a single game, and being named All-State and All-County. 

In addition to playing basketball, Harvey was also a member of the varsity football and baseball teams during his high school years. 

Following graduation, Harvey attended the University of West Georgia and the University of New Mexico. An avid golfer, he has been a member of the Professional Golfers’ Association of America since 1989 and is the head golf professional at the Ladera Golf Course in New Mexico.
