A new era in John Jay lacrosse history officially begins today.
Tim Schurr makes his head-coaching debut as John Jay hosts Brewster in a 4:30 p.m. game on John Jay’s turf main contest field.
Schurr is just the third head coach in the 31-year history of the Indians’ tradition-rich program.
Bob Kear, who founded the program, guided the Indians from 1979-1999. He was succeeded by Nick Savastano (2000-09).
They will be another head-coaching debut in Nanuet as John Esposito coaches his first game for the Golden Knights, who host Wappingers at 1 p.m.
Rye, which saw its run of four straight Class C sectional titles end last season, has one of its biggest non-postseason tests as it faces Dulaney High School of Maryland in a 1 p.m. game at Johns Hopkins University.
Also in Section 1, Mamaroneck, which has been at the receiving end of a lot of positive preseason buzz, plays at Hen Hud at 11 a.m. and Clarkstown South visits Horace Greeley at 4:30 p.m.
Mercer Island, fresh of a big win over Mahopac, continues its East Coast tour with a 7 p.m. game vs. Lakeland/Panas at Lakeland High School. (Mercer Island wraps up its swing on Saturday with a 4 p.m. game at Guilderland.)
Things should be much quieter today in Long Island after yesterday’s big news as Sachem North stunned the top-ranked team in the nation, West Islip, 13-12 in overtime.
An 11 a.m. game between South Side and host Wantagh highlights the slate. In other action, Massapequa plays at Long Beach at 1 p.m. and Floral Park visits Baldwin at 4 p.m.
In the CHSAA, Iona Prep opens the season with a 1 p.m. game at St. John the Baptist. St. Anthony’s meets Kellenberg and Holy Trinity faces Fordham Prep in a pair of 4:30 p.m. games.
As always, be sure to post your thoughts on these matchups as well as any info on the scores and game details.
