continued The Lakers’ undefeated 2011 season is about more than awards however, Sindoni said. It will also benefit the players going to college in 2012.
At the end of the 2010-11 school year, then-head coach Tim Green and assistant coach Sindoni called colleges to talk about players interested in their schools. This year, 16 colleges came to Skaneateles to look at recruiting Skaneateles players, Sindoni said.
“There was a period this year where I got calls twice a day every day for a two-week period. We could have as many as 10 kids play college ball, including Division 1 schools. That’s the best part to me,” Sindoni said, adding that some players could get into schools that otherwise they could not because their grades are not high enough.
“That’s the benefit of the success we’ve had — they can use it to do something tangible,” he said.
