There’s little doubt Yorktown will once again be one of the top boys lacrosse teams in New York once again this year.
The Huskers, who won the Class B state title in 2014 and advanced to the state semifinals last year, will be bolstered by an outstanding defense that features an array of college-bound standouts.
As always, Yorktown’s schedule allows it an opportunity to see how it fares against premier out-of-state competition.
The first test is in Yorktown’s opener Saturday. The Huskers take on Cathedral Catholic of California in a 10 a.m. game at West Point. Cathedral Catholic is coming off a 13-8 season, highlighted by a mid-season stretch in which the Dons won seven times in eight games.
It will be a full day of action on Long Island with plenty of preseason and regular-season action.
The game of the day features defending New York Class B state finalist Manhasset hosting Smithtown West at 11 a.m.
In a Westchester vs. Suffolk battle, Section 1’s Pelham and Section 11’s Mount Sinai open the season with a 7 p.m. game at St. Joseph’s College in Patchogue. St. Joseph’s will be adding a collegiate men’s lacrosse program that will take the field in 2017 and announced that former Shoreham-Wading River head coach Tom Rotanz will be guiding the team.
Also on LI, Bayport-Blue Point hosts Port Jefferson and Patchogue-Medford visits Bellport in a pair of 10 a.m. games.
Action in the Coaches vs. Cancer Preseason Tournament at Veterans Park in Northport starts at 9:15 a.m. and continues with scrimmages through 2 p.m.
Participating teams include host Northport as well as Huntington, Commack, Kings Park, Half Hollow Hills West, Half Hollow Hills East, Harborfields and Eastport-South Manor.
In another scrimmage of note, two-time Suffolk Class A champ Smithtown East visits Lindenhurst in a 10 a.m. game at Lindenhurst Middle School.
