It will be a busy week of action as we approach the midway point of the regular season.
The week will be capped by a tripleheader at St. Anthony’s High School in South Huntington on Saturday featuring six of the top programs in the Hudson Valley/Long Island/Connecticut region.
The “Lead the Way Lacrosse Day of Heroes features St. Anthony’s vs. New Canaan in Game 1 at noon, followed by Chaminade vs. Yorktown in Game 2 at 2 p.m. and Manhasset vs. Darien in Game 3 at 4 p.m.
The event honors the memory of Jimmy Regan, a Manhasset native and former Chaminade and Duke star who served as a sergeant with the Army Ranger Regiment. He died on Feb. 9, 2007 after an improvised explosive device detonated near his vehicle while he was on combat patrol in northern Iraq.
