McClure brilliant in Hornets' 2-0 shutout of Northstars
Entering a challenging final week of the regular season, the Cicero-North Syracuse baseball team was still unblemished, at 14-0, but quite aware that its long streak could end at any time.

Hansen leads Liverpool to 3-1 mark at Muddville
Back in late April, the Cicero-North Syracuse softball team got tripped up for the only time this season, beaten by its own mistakes in a 9-2 defeat to John Jay-East Fishkill in a tournament near Binghamton.

Warriors also drop rematch with Baldwinsville
A month may have brought changes in the Liverpool boys lacrosse team, but it certainly has changed things for the side it conquered to win the Section III Class A title a year ago.
Marcellus hurt by late first-half Laker surge
On the brink of the Section III Class C playoffs, the Marcellus girls lacrosse team could lay claim to a perfect mark, with one glaring exception. That would be Skaneateles, who fought past the Mustangs 14-12 in overtime on April 15 and, in last Wednesday’s rematch at Hyatt Stadium, took charge late in the first half to prevail again, this time by a more decisive 17-9 margin.
Wildcats miss C-NS Ilacqua Tournament due to rain
It had reached the point in the season where the West Genesee baseball team had a right to feel fatigued, having played six times in an eight-day span. But through that stretch, the Wildcats went 5-1, capped by last Monday’s strong effort at home against Utica Proctor, where it got the runs early and turned to Evan Reichel to preserve a 4-1 victory over the Raiders.
Ludden, Westhill go through various ups and downs

Rams fall to Ludden; Brothers beaten by Homer
When it got off to a 12-1 start and rose as high as no. 2 in the state Class A rankings, expectations for the Jamesville-DeWitt baseball team soared in accordance. Those expectations are tempered after a pair of late-season league setbacks, starting May 2 with a 5-4 defeat to Homer and continuing with last Tuesday’s 9-1 loss to Bishop Ludden.
J-D roars past Fulton, Cortland; ESM struggles
Many different angles could be offered in regards to the Jamesville-DeWitt boys lacrosse team’s 10-9 defeat to Niskayuna on the night of May 4. Maybe it was an indicator that the Red Rams’ state title run might not be as smooth as originally imagined. Or perhaps J-D, while aiming to beat the Silver Warriors, could let go of the outcome knowing a possible rematch in the state finals would carry far more weight.
