The college season is up and running — and could be coming soon to a high school field near you.
There will be a couple of men’s college games scheduled for turf fields at high schools in the region in the next few weeks that will feature plenty of former varsity standouts from the area.
Here’s a look:
* St. Lawrence vs. Haverford – March 3, 1 p.m., at Bronxville (NY) High School. Both Division III squads have numerous players from the region.
* Merrimack vs. Rollins – March 22, 7 p.m. at Tiger Hollow Stadium, Ridgefield (CT) High School. Former Ridgefield coach RJ Rossi is the head coach at Rollins.
