Don’t adjust your calendars, folks. It really is April 24 today — just went action is really heating up in the nation’s No. 1 lacrosse hotspot, despite the, at times, frigid elements.
It was a huge day in Connecticut yesterday with two upsets — Fairfield Ludlowe beating unbeaten Staples and Daniel Hand defeating Fairfield Prep — and a down-to-the-wire thriller as unbeaten Darien extended its win streak to 29 by beating Ridgefield.

Stony Brook University-bound senior Ryan Ozsvath of Half Hollow Hills West (NY) is closing in on the school’s all-time goal-scoring record.
