LaxLessons – The Leader.
Our groundbreaking, imitated, but never duplicated coverage,
and Recruiting Rundown, launched in 2009.
Get caught up on the latest news right here, right now by visiting LaxLessons.com’s groundbreaking, imitated, but never duplicated Lacrosse Insider. It’s the No. 1 source and unparalleled leader for recruiting news, analysis and objective information in the NY/NJ/CT tristate hotspot and the entire lax galaxy, featuring nationally respected, award-winning multimedia news and sports director, manager, producer and editor Joe Lombardi, the author of the latest edition of “Lacrosse for Dummies.” Access Insider here.
It all started when a transplanted Long Islander and Yorktown High School teacher Jim Turnbull formed a club team at the school in 1965.
Shortly after, a former Princeton University lacrosse player who lived in town, Charlie Murphy, wrote out a check for $500 he gave to Turnbull. It was enough to outfit the team for its first season.
Since then, of course, Yorktown has grown into one of the nation’s premier programs, with seven New York state titles and Murphy’s home (pictured above), on the west side of town, became a gathering place for players to hone their skills and be mentored by former players and coaches.
This coming weekend, the Yorktown community will be coming together to officially celebrate the program’s 50th year.
