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 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’s the first day of spring — and the start of actual games in what promises to be another intriguing and action-packed season in the nation’s No. 1 hotbed for lacrosse, the NY/NJ/CT tristate region.
Nevermind the fact that many area fields are surrounded with the backdrop of snowbanks.
As always, and fittingly, the hotspot within the hotbed — Long Island — gets things going first.
Connecticut public-school teams, meanwhile, start tryouts Monday.
Temps are expected to reach a balmy 50 degrees for the high on Monday under bright, sun-shiny skies. Nice! But don’t get too excited. The high temp will struggle to hit the freezing mark both Wednesday and Thursday, and there’s a slight chance of snow showers Saturday morning on a day that features some megamatchups.
Among those scheduled Saturday, March 25 showdowns: Chaminade (NY) vs. McDonogh (MD) at Princeton University; Smithtown East (NY) at John Jay (NY); Garden City (NY) at Smithtown West (NY); Northport (NY) at Syosset (NY); Yorktown (NY) at Somers (NY); Corning (NY) at Victor (NY); Wantagh (NY) at Mamaroneck (NY) Briarcliff (NY) at Rye (NY); St. Thomas Aquinas (FL) at St. Dominic (NY); and Mount Sinai (NY) vs. Pelham (NY).
Action on the Island today includes just a handful of openers, including Patchogue-Medford at Hauppauge, North Shore at Baldwin and Riverhead at West Babylon.
