Brothers to face West Genesee at Carrier Dome for title
Someone quite good, ranked within the state Class A top five for the entire season, was going to see its season end in Thursday night’s Section III Class A girls lacrosse semifinals at Chittenango High School.

Once proved challenging, and twice proved difficult, but by the third time the Jamesville-DeWitt girls lacrosse team fought past East Syracuse Minoa, it wasn’t close at all – and it served as a harbinger for greater things to come.
B'ville rallies past F-M, but can't hold lead against Wildcats
Baldwinsville’s girls lacrosse team did something remarkable and historic during Thursday’s Section III Class A semifinal at Chittenango High School. For an entire half, the no. 4 seed Bees kept top seed and defending state champion West Genesee off the board, something no one else had pulled off in Wildcats head coach Bob Elmer’s 16 years at the helm.

Even though it was competing in familiar surroundings at Pelcher-Arcaro Stadium, each of Baldwinsville’s track and field team still found themselves chasing Liverpool and Cicero-North Syracuse during Thursday’s CNY Counties League National division championship meet.
Skaneateles, trailing 10-8, scores three in last two minutes
It only figured that the Skaneateles girls lacrosse team would, once again, have to climb over its feisty, hungry neighbors from Marcellus to get back to the Carrier Dome for Tuesday’s Section III Class C title game.
Mustangs led for most of sectional Class C semifinal
Many different times in many different settings, the Marcellus girls lacrosse team had tried to conquer its more storied neighbors from Skaneateles in a Section III playoff setting, only to get turned back. Few, if any of those defeats compared, in terms of pain and frustration, to what took place Thursday night at Christian Brothers Academy’s Alibrandi Stadium, a Class C semifinal that the Mustangs led most of the way before it got snatched from them in a cruel 11-10 defeat to the Lakers.

Patience is something not often associated with teenagers, even high school athletes. Yet the West Genesee girls lacrosse team had to employ a lot of patience in order to return to the Carrier Dome for yet another shot at the Section III Class A championship.
Second-quarter run turns game in Cougars' favor
All was going well for the Baldwinsville boys lacrosse team early in Wednesday night’s Section III Class A playoff opener against the Syracuse Cougars at Pelcher-Arcaro Stadium. Not only were the Bees out in front, it was doing so with a potent attack that was flustering the Cougars at every turn. One or two more goals, and B’ville might have produced a runaway.

A chance at snaring the biggest victory in program history now lies right in front of the Cicero-North Syracuse boys lacrosse team.
C-NS uses two big spurts to knock out F-M, 14-6
When the Fayetteville-Manlius boys lacrosse team recorded big late-season wins over West Genesee (in overtime) and Cazenovia (in the last seconds), the impression, going into the Section III Class A playoffs, was that the Hornets had a fighting chance to reclaim the title banner that, in 2014, ended a 21-year championship drought.
Five-time state champ hired two months after abrupt J-D departure
Bob McKenney’s abrupt departure from the Jamesville-DeWitt boys basketball program that he steered to five state championships in 19 seasons did not mark the end of his coaching career. Instead, McKenney is now in charge a few miles down the road, at Bishop Grimes, where his hiring was announced at a press conference Thursday inside the school’s gymnasium in front of family members, friends and approximately 100 students.

Marcellus ousted by Caz in Class C quarterfinal
If the West Genesee boys lacrosse team reclaims the Section III Class A title, it will do so not having to worry about Fayetteville-Manlius standing in the way. As the top-seeded Wildcats dismantled no. 8 seed Utica Proctor 21-3 in Wednesday night's opening-round game in Camillus, the no. 4 seed Hornets saw its title reign come to an end with a 14-6 home defeat to no. 5 seed Cicero-North Syracuse.
First-half shutout leads to sectional semifinal against Skaneateles
At least through the early rounds of the Section III Class C playoffs, the Cazenovia boys lacrosse team have not run into any serious stress. Following a 21-1 destruction of Clinton in the opening round on May 16, the top-seeded, defending sectional champion Lakers did much the same to no. 9 seed Marcellus in Wednesday’s Class C quarterfinal at the Sean Googin Sports Complex, defeating the Mustangs 15-2.
