Player’s perspective: Syracuse-bound Chavez sees league games as the key for Rye (NY)
For Lazarus Chavez and the Rye High School Garnets, the path to the Section 1 (N.Y.) final starts within their league. The senior Syracuse University-bound defenseman sees games against Fox Lane, Horace Greeley, Byram Hills, Pleasantville and Harrison as critical to the Garnets’ success in 2014. So too, undoubtedly, will be the play of Chavez, an […]
Player's perspective: Greeley's Brian Dubs, senior defenseman
Much of the preseason chatter involving Section 1 Class B has centered on defending champion John Jay, 2009 champion Somers and the two new additions to the class: Yorktown and Rye. But there are several others teams that certainly bear watching. We’ve been taking a look at a few the last couple of weeks. After […]
Player's perspective: Greeley's Gabe Weissmann, senior goaltender
The race for the Section 1 Class B championship this coming season has attracted quite a bit of attention. That’s because Yorktown, which has 28 sectional titles the last 31 years, has moved down from Class A, and Rye, which has advanced to the sectional final six straight years, has moved up from Class C.

Meaningful NYC Marathon for Hofstra attackman Fried
For Jordan Fried, just finishing the New York City Marathon last Sunday was a significant achievement in itself. But that accomplishment becomes even more meaningful because the Horace Greeley grad, who is a sophomore attackman on Hofstra’s men’s lacrosse team, was part of “Fred’s Team,” a group of runners devoted to raising proceeds for cancer […]
Weissmann will be making stops at Middlebury
Nothing can give a team a lift like a big save. Gabriel Weissmann made plenty of them last season for Horace Greeley, keeping the Quakers in plenty of games. After one more season with Greeley, Weissmann will take his talents to the next level.
Greeley’s Dubs is headed to Hamilton
Hamilton College’s defense will have a Hudson Valley feel to it for years to come starting in the 2012 season. Earlier this week, we told you about Bronxville’s Billy Casperson’s commitment to the Continentals. Now, we can add add the word “Hamilton” following the name of another defensive standout from Westchester on our “Updated recruiting […]
Player’s perspective: Greeley’s Hunter Bastian, senior defenseman
Horace Greeley will be getting its share of tough tests this season. The Quakers are members of newly aligned Conference League III-A, along with defending Class B sectional champion Somers as well as John Jay and Rye, who are both sectional champs four of the past five years. Wittenberg University-bound senior defenseman Hunter Bastian shares […]
Wednesday's Top 5/Predictions/Score updates
Most now view the FCIAC championship chase as a two-horse race between defending champion Darien and Ridgefield. Those two teams don’t meet till mid-May. But we may get a bit of an idea how the teams compare tonight when Darien visits Wilton.

Until they meet again?
As John Jay and Somers players lined up for the post-game handshake following Somers’ 10-7 win tonight, you could almost sense the feeling on both sides. That while it was a big game and, in fact, a very entertaining one it was just Round 1. I talked to players and coaches from both […]
