If ever Corning East’s string of successive trips to the state playoffs seemed vulnerable, this appeared to be the year. The Trojans endured an uncharacteristically rocky regular season that included three straight losses to begin 2009.

If Section 4 kept rankings for most competitive mother-daughter combination in a varsity sport, Ithaca High's Lyn Reitenbach and Marley Ciferri would be high on the list. After helping secure the Little Red's second straight Section 4 Class A girls lacrosse championship Friday with an 18-8 victory over Binghamton, Ciferri thanked her mother - and head coach - by initiating a water cooler sneak attack. After five years of constant give-and-take, it was the least the Syracuse University-bound senior could do.

Gabe Mendola controlled the faceoffs, and Garrett Venuto and Robbie Young did the rest. Venuto and Young each recorded hat tricks in Ithaca's eight-goal third quarter, and the top-seeded Little Red surged past fourth-seeded Vestal, 12-5, in a Section 4 Class A boys lacrosse semifinal Friday at Moresco Stadium/Bredbenner Field.

Corning East’s quest for a perfect season was derailed last week with a 14-11 loss at Ithaca. However, the unexpected setback did provide a more ideal setting for yet another milestone for the powerhouse program. The Trojans opened the Section IV, Class B playoffs Friday with a convincing 20-6 victory over Horseheads at Memorial Stadium, marking the 500th career win for head coach Bob Streeten.

In its first six seasons of varsity competition, the Vestal girls lacrosse team had never once posted a winning record. The Golden Bears remedied that this season, and on Friday night earned a most coveted reward for their remarkable turnaround. Vestal's Amber Bowe scored with four seconds remaining in the first of two three-minute overtime periods, and teammate Casey Bulman had a key steal in the second overtime period as the Golden Bears rallied for a 10-9 victory over Union-Endicott to win the Section 4 Class B title at Dick Hoover Stadium.

At that event, a number of the Wildcat players wore flip-flops -- a fashion statement that became front-page news on Friday, July 15 when The Chicago Tribune did a story about the footwear . . . From now until Tuesday, July 26, the Northwestern women's lacrosse players who wore flip-flops at the White House will auction them off, with the proceeds going directly to Jaclyn and her family. The players hope that the money they send to Jaclyn will help defray the costs her family endures as they help their daughter, so that she can fight her cancer and enjoy a normal childhood.

Overall, unlike other NCAA events, the Lacrosse Final Four is a big time family atmosphere. There were tons of kids playing lacrosse and various other tailgating games in the parking lot (hitting my car with f’ing lacrosse balls), plenty of grilling, and various adult beverages. It is not quite the epic level of an elite college football game, but it is damn close. Additionally, there are tons of players from other schools, be it other DI schools that didn’t make the tourney, or even other DII and DIII schools.

When Foxboro Youth Lacrosse president John Stamatov moved to town in 1996, there was no such thing as a youth lacrosse program. There was no high school team either.

In the run-up to Syracuse University's thrilling 11th NCAA lacrosse championship at Gillette Stadium, there have been several articles in The Post-Standard over the last week celebrating lacrosse traditions in Central New York. With Cornell, Le Moyne, Cortland and Syracuse all in their respective national championship games, the eyes of the lacrosse world have turned our way wondering about the secret to our success . . . But there has been one glaring omission of why Central New York is a special region for lacrosse. It is the fact that lacrosse has been played here since time immemorial by the Haudenosaunee - People of the Longhouse.

On Memorial Day, I was fortunate to catch the end of the National Championship game that pitted No. 2 Syracuse against No. 5 Cornell. And needless to say the conclusion of this game was close to, if not as epic, as Lebron James' buzzer beating heroics in game two of the Eastern Conference Finals or Darren Helm's overtime game-winner to send the Red Wings back to the Stanley Cup Finals.

We’ve been following seniors all season long throughout the NCAA but now is the time to take a closer look into who the top prospects are for the college draft that will take place on May 27.

Each candidate has their own strengths and weaknesses but here is a look into who I think will go early, or at least be considered early on at each position.

The legend grows. The Syracuse University men's lacrosse team, down three goals with four minutes to play and the ball in Cornell's possession, staged an unlikely, incredible four-goal rally Monday afternoon to defeat the Big Red 10-9 and win its second consecutive Division I national championship on Cody Jamieson's crease shot off a pass from Dan Hardy 1 minute, 20 seconds into sudden-death overtime.

If there were any lingering doubts about sophomore Joel White's position change, he put those to rest with his performance in the Orange's 10-9 win over Cornell in Monday's NCAA title game -- most emphatically so by starting the contest's defining play.
from Lacrosse Magazine
Cornell did virtually everything necessary to claim its fourth national championship -- and first since 1977 -- Monday at Gillette Stadium. The Big Red dictated tempo, scored timely goals, played excellent team defense, and built a three-goal lead heading into the closing minutes. The only thing it failed to do was to put Syracuse away for good.

Cody Jamieson asked Stephen Keogh the same question that likely weighed on the minds of 41,935 fans at Gillette Stadium on Monday. "Is it time to get desperate yet?"

Before 41,935 fans at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, Mass., the Orange (16-2) won their 11th national title and became the first team since Princeton in 1997-98 to win back-to-back championships. And while most everyone picked the Orange to win coming into the game, it didn’t look like they had a shot when Cornell went up 9-6 with 5:31 remaining.
