Leading off today:
Peter Lapina's goal midway through the fourth quarter broke a tie and helped Manhasset
to a 7-4 victory over Garden City in the 133rd edition of the Woodstick Classic, the nation's oldest continuous boys lacrosse rivalry on Saturday.
Garden City was ranked second and Manhasset seventh in the New York State Sportswriters Association Class B rankings.
Lapina scored with 6:11 to play, and freshman Aidan Mulholland struck twice in the final 1:35 to add insurance. Midfielder Marc Psyllos won 11 of 15 faceoffs.
"Putting the ball in a freshman's hands in that spot shows you what we think of him," Manhasset coach Keith Cromwell said of Mulholland, who has already committed to Michigan.
More boys lacrosse: Jamesville-DeWitt raced to a 6-0 lead in the first 18 minutes and went on to a 10-4 triumph against West Genesee to secure the Rams' ninth consecutive win.
J-D is ranked third in the state in Class C and West Genesee 11th in Class A.
Sophomore Ryan Vespi and senior Ryan Drotar scored in the first four minutes, and freshman Johnny Keib connected twice early in the second quarter to make it 4-0. Keib finished with three goals and an assist.
All told, the Red Rams got eight goals and three assists from freshmen and sophomores.
Since an opening loss to Victor, J-D has gone 9-0 with only one game decided by fewer than four gals.
"In our first game against Victor, it took us a quarter and a half for them to even know what it meant to compete," J-D coach Jamie Archer said of his young team. "Since then our young guys have grown so much. Tonight we were better the whole way."
• Victor, top-ranked in Class B, rolled past Class A No. 9 Corning 14-3 as Cam Hay scored four goals and Tucker Hill won 11 of 12 faceoffs.
Penn Relays wrap-up: It's been awhile now since I've made it to the Penn Relays in Philadelphia. I was going to suggest that some things about that meet never change -- the precision of the schedule and the dominating performances of the Jamaican schools that make the annual trek -- but one of those Jamaican schools added a new wrinkle this weekend with probably the greatest performance ever.
Kingston's Calabar High became the first school to win the Championship of America titles in the 400-, 1,600- and 3,200-meter relays in the same year, and it did so by using 12 athletes to clock three times superior to the all-time U.S. scholastic records.
Calabar, which won the 400 relay in 39 flat a year ago, repeated in "only" :39.51 this time, All four legs of the 3,200 ran splits under 1:54 for a 7:26.09 time, and then the 1,600 quartet stole the show with a sole-melting 3:03.79, including Christopher Taylor's :44.84 anchor. Calabar shaved nearly five seconds off the meet record of 3:08.59 it established in 2017.
