Photo caption: On Sept. 26, Smithtown High School West’s field hockey team held the 10th annual “Play 4 The Cure” game honoring the memory of Sara Long Harte. Each year, Smithtown High School West dedicates a game to the former St. James Elementary School teacher who lost her battle with breast cancer. Harte taught at St. James for eight years, the same elementary school she attended. In her honor and memory, there is a scholarship fund in Smithtown, a memorial garden and a hand-crafted picket fence in front of the St. James Elementary School. Her dedication to her students, work with the Sunrise Fund for Childhood Cancer and her love for the community will never be forgotten.
