If you’ve been following our “Schedules scanner” thread, you know that when it comes to the nation’s No. 1 hotbed for lacrosse, there is no shortage of challenging schedules.
But Shoreham-Wading River has taken it one step further.
Coach Tom Rotanz passed along SWR’s preseason scrimmage schedule and it’s quite impressive.
Check it out:
3-14 at Smithtown East, 3:30 p.m.

The Wildcats’ regular-season schedule is highlighted by a game at home against two-time New York State Class B finalist Garden City on April 28 at 3 p.m. It’s SWR’s Lax Out Cancer game.
“Last year, we raised $22,000 during the course of the three-hour game,” Rotanz said.
SWR opens the season March 28 at home against Hauppauge at 4:30 p.m. The Wildcats’ non-section slate also includes a May 5 game at Mountain Lakes (NJ).
