There was no shortage of opinion late in the summer when we devoted a thread to an outlook on Section 1 Class B for this coming season.
With two-time finalists John Jay and Somers back, and Yorktown moving down from Class A, and Rye moving up from last C, Class B looks to be stacked in Section 1.
Ditto for Section 8.
So now, let’s take at what could be the most competitive class from sea to shining sea.
After all, there’s 2010 Class B state finalist Garden City, regarded by many readers in a recent thread as the top team in the nation’s No. 1 lacrosse hotbed (Hudson Valleyt/Long Island/Connecticut).
There’s also now Manhasset.
You know, as in the two-time defending Class C state champion Indians.
As we told you here last week, GC and ‘Set will be squaring off in the 120th edition of the nation’s most tradition-rich high school rivalry, the Woodstick Classic, on April 30 at Manhasset.
Will that be just a tuneup for the Nassau Class B title game?
Tell us your thoughts. And be sure to reveal who you think is the more talented team. And why.
