Summer travel teams from throughout the Hudson Valley/Long Island/Connecticut area will be among those competing today at the eighth annual Long Island Pride Fest at Hofstra University in Hempstead.
In addition to the host Pride, WestRock and the Connecticut Chargers are in the field.
You can get the complete rundown of teams, and today’s schedule, by clicking here.
Also gang, just a reminder. The fifth annual Under Armour All-America Lacrosse Classic is set for today at Towson Universitys Johnny Unitas Stadium and several standouts from the Hudson Valley/Long Island/Connecticut region will be involved in the action.
A total of eight University of North Carolina recruits (more than any other program) will compete in the event. That contingent includes recent West Islip graduate Nicky Galasso, the all-time leading scorer in Long Island lacrosse history. The North vs. South boys high school all-star game will be televised live at 8 p.m. on Saturday on ESPNU.
Galasso will be joined on the North team by former West Islip teammate Andrew Hodgson. Hodgson told me earlier this month hes eagerly awaiting the game since it will be played on the home field of his future college team, Towson.
Three players from Chaminade will also be playing on the North team: defenseman John Urbank and Mike Ehrhardt and attackman Will Himler. Jack Moran, who founded the Chaminade program 31 years ago and has been the programs only coach in its history, will guide the North team. Another player from the CHSAA, St. Anthonys grad Thomas Schreiber, is also a member of the North team.
