Leading off today:
Victor senior Louie Schafer
hit grand slams in the first and seventh innings as the Blue Devils earned a 10-2 baseball victory over Irondequoit.
The game Saturday was the continuation of a suspended contest a day earlier and ran Victor's winning streak to five games.
With the Victor roster a bit larger than usual, longtime coach Sean Rucker gave Schafer his No. 23 jersey this season.
"When I rounded third he said, 'I like 2-3 on you,'" Schafer told PickinSplinters.com. "I was like, 'Yeah.'"
More baseball: Many teams have been racing to make up postponements while the getting's good, and Lake Shore is no exception.
Lake Shore won for the sixth time in as many days, earning a 5-3 win over Maryvale as Jon Wilson went 2-for-4 and drove in two runs. Bryce Toth gave up two runs with nine strikeouts in six innings.
Well, that was quick: We began the week with eight unbeaten boys lacrosse teams in New York. We ended it with none.
Niskayuna, ranked seventh in Class A, was the last to fall, absorbing an 18-5 drubbing at the hands of No. 1 St. Anthony's on Saturday.
Also falling by the wayside this week were Webster Thomas, Islip, Homer, Salmon River, Greenwich, St. Lawrence and Eden-Springville.
It's probably the earliest we've lost all of our unbeatens in quite some time.
Softball slugfest: Samantha Ulmer went 4-for-6 and drove in nine runs as Bloomfield defeated East Rochester 20-16 in eight innings. Katie Case hit a grand slam and drive in seven runs for ER.
• Laura Burrell threw a four-hitter with nine strikeouts as Addison defeated Bishop Kearney 3-1 in eight innings. It was the first lost of the season for Kearney, the NYSPHSAA Class C champion a season ago.
College commitment: Baldwin junior guard Kaia Harrison has made a verbal commitment to the Wake Forest women's basketball program last week.
She averaged 10.1 points a game as the Bruins became the first Long Island girls basketball team to win back-to-back NYSPHSAA championships and then went on to the Federation Class AA crown.
Harrison was named the Federation Class AA tournament MVP after contributing 15 points and five assists in the 58-49 win over previously unbeaten Christ the King, ranked No. 1 by USA Today at the time.
Ugly story of the week: Two Arizona men loosely connected to the media have been banned by the state's high school sports governing body after being accused of sending sexually suggestive messages to scholastic athletes.
