Just received word moments ago that the Empire State Games’ fate for 2009 has now been all but sealed.
Though there has been no announcement yet, I’ve been told the decision has been made to cancel this summer’s Games and that coaches have been told they will not be needed this summer.
Needless to say, this will have a huge impact on lacrosse. Since the Games’ fate has been in limbo for months now, many lax players I’ve talked to have made alternate plans for the summer. There is also talk about starting up several showcase recruiting events in the area to give players an opportunity to be seen by college coaches.
We’ll have more info when it becomes available. In the meantime, let’s hear your thoughts.
