The weather is supposed to be just great for both today and tomorrow. We’re talking 70s and sunny, gang.
But for lax in the Hudson Valley/Long Island/Connecticut region, today is the calm before the storm.
Why, you ask?
Because today, there are no games on the schedule, and tomorrow is the day we have so aptly dubbed “Showdown Saturday.”
Throughout the week, we’ve been sharing predictions on those mega-matchups, namely Chaminade-West Islip, John Jay-Yorktown and Somers-St. Anthony’s.
We’ve also featured a rotating poll question for each game. (So if you haven’t had a chance, be sure to exercise your right to vote.)
There are also plenty of other big games on tap as well tomorrow, including Garden City at Smithtown East for a 6 p.m. game.
As we told you earlier this week, all proceeds of the John Jay-Yorktown game will once again support the battle against breast cancer.
Parents (led by Yorktown team captains parents Lisa Lieberman, Robyn Mabus, Lisa Porcelli and Jeanne Interlicchio) will be asking for a donation of any amount at the entrance to Charlie Murphy Field. They will also be having a 50/50 raffle to raise money for Support Connection, which is a Yorktown-based group that assists women with breast and ovarian cancer.
