We are excited to announce that the 2014 IWLCA deBeer Presidents Cup has been expanded! The tournament will be held at Disney's ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex and the newly added Lake Myrtle Sports Park just down the road in Auburndale, FL. Because of the overwhelming demand for last year's Presidents Cup and the extensive waitlists for each division, the IWLCA decided on the expansion to accommodate more teams and to allow more student-athletes the opportunity to participate in the tournament.

“I was just out buying lunch and I was downtown,” said Walters. ”I was driving by, and I saw the kid with a lacrosse stick and gear. I was just blown away. It was the first time I had ever seen something like that, especially in my hometown. So I snapped a pic and I put that up, and obviously it got some attention.”

The Oswego girls lacrosse team went to the “Happiest Place on Earth,” and have won back-to-back games since.

What’s clear is that the East Syracuse-Minoa girls lacrosse team is happy in the direction which it is going, and that Jamesville-DeWitt is far less pleased. Amid windy and wet conditions last Monday night, the Spartans met the Red Rams, and it would go back and forth the whole way, but ESM would hang on for a 7-6 victory.

YOUNG BOYS often have similar dreams about their futures. Many want to be a professional athlete, firefighter, astronaut or soldier. Many of these dreams die when they reach school age, and different career paths are forged for them. For Garrett Thul, more than one of his childhood dreams are coming true.

“We thought, we have such a quality player here, let’s get him in here somehow,” Desko went on to say. “He’s smart and he’s good in packages and he’s good at picking things up quickly.”

from The Daily Orange
In Syracuse first seven games of the season, Daddio won 42.6 percent of his faceoffs and SU head coach John Desko shuffled a host of players through the circle each game. But in the four games since that led up Syracuse’s 100th meeting with Hobart, Daddio increased his percentage by 15.6 points. Now, no other player has taken a faceoff in the last five games and the Orange, fittingly, hasn’t lost.

One constant treat for members of the Baldwinsville girls lacrosse team is to head out on a long trip each spring far away from Central New York, a chance to face some unique competition and also to forge bonds and chemistry that could pay off down the road.

Let’s be honest – there’s a lot of ugliness out there. In the past five weeks or so, I’ve seen some crazy, crazy stuff, things that just should not be.

I’ve seen a kid ride a bike across a lacrosse field while the ball was in play. I’ve seen a coach yell to a referee that he was going to go up in the stands to shut up a heckler (that no one else had heard). This weekend I heard the Cornell coaching staff announced in the pre-game introductions instead of the Cortland staff.

Not sure about the rest of the country, but Mother Nature has been most uncooperative so far this spring. This week is Spring Break for many Upstate NY high schools, and on Monday we basked in 77-degree temperatures. However, on Tuesday the temps dropped and we got an inch or two of snow that hung around through Wednesday’s forecasted high of 34 degrees! Just crazy!
