Cold Spring Harbor has been a fixture in the Section 8 Class C final, but the Seahawks have fallen in the final each of the last two years.
CSH lost to Locust Valley last year after losing to Friends Academy in 2013.
For more, we turn to Colin Burke.
The attackman/midfielder is looking forward to one final varsity season before heading to Fairfield University, a commitment he made prior to his junior year in August 2013 and first reported here.
Now, here are Colin’s perspectives on the upcoming season.
What have you been doing to get ready for the season?
As a team, we have been doing strength and conditioning training since the fall, and we are now having practices indoors to get our stick skills ready for the season.
How does your schedule look, what games are you looking forward to most, and who are some of your scrimmages against?
We face two very strong teams, Syosset and Manhasset, early in the season and after that we expect tough regular season and, hopefully, playoff games against Locust Valley.
What players on your team do you think will surprise some people this season?
We have a good balance of upper and underclassmen this year. I believe that Will Doyle will be strong in goal.
I expect to see players like Riley Cox, Matt Liccardi and Conner Crosson assume leadership roles at the midfield, and that John Shea, Dylan Guarneri and James Kessler will do the same on defense.
What do you think the strength of your team will be this year?
With several underclassmen (Ian Laviano, Matt Liccardi and Taylor Strough) already committed to top D-I programs, we see our depth as one of our strengths.
How do you view the race in your league and who do you think some of the contending teams will be?
Our goal of winning a state championship starts with the county playoffs and, in order to succeed there, we’ll have to play at our highest level against Locust Valley, the defending champs.
