not very nice or fair of you to be so seemingly jealous of a team with a very grand winning tradition.

Not from that town but i know many of the players and parents. they are very supportive of the game and are just frustrated. that team is loaded with top level D1 talent. clearly the formula is missing an ingredient or the chef needs remediation; but dont attack players or parents or town. There is no need for that


D1 "recruits" that can't get it done in high school. Hmmm...maybe not as "D1" talented as they need to be. Sorry, not buying it. When you look at the list of failures to produce in big spots against better competition, those supposed D1 kids consistently failed to show up. Nothing wrong with the system or coach, the kids just didn't put the big numbers up against the better teams when Cherry needed them to. If they couldn't do it against GC, will be interesting to see if they can do it against Duke, Virginia et. al.


In all honesty if your going to blame the kids, Can you explain what this "system" is?


The same "system" that has resulted in multiple state championships or state final appearances over the past 7 or 8 years. Cherry just didn't have the horses this year. He's working with self centered overhyped kids who have been told how wonderful they are their whole lives and during the meaningless summer circuit but have no real results to back it up. There was no real leadership or toughness on this team - it was all talk by the players and parents before the season even began they were talking smack about a state title - only because Victor had moved up to A. But, when a team like GC or Darien stepped up and punched these over hyped little bullies in the mouth, they fell apart as quickly as I've ever seen. Even if they had gotten by GC, they would have never survived gritty teams like SWR, Yorktown or any tough blue collar team from upstate. Oh well, at least they have their graduation gift beemers waiting for them in the school parking lot.

What's gritty and blue collar about SWR and Yorktown? Don't recall any Stella mills in either place. Just upper middle class good lacrosse towns. Like every other top tier team.


By Manhasset standards, they "po' folk".

Blaming the kids? are you serious? Manhasset has never had as many horses as this year! There was no coaching for the team. Only promotion of friends and family at ALL COSTS. 6 Captains? Seriously? The NEPOTISM CARD has been played for 3 years. Team saddled with a below average friends and family who had no chance of being recruited at the D1 level

What a defensive angry post above about MANHASSET ....sounds like thou dost protest too much?? .MANHASSET: Why did we loose in a fantastic implosion with all these d1 commits you ask? Our coach was too concerned with promoting friends and family and padding their stats and doing favors to put inferior players on the field in order to keep the side business afloat. These kids couldn't even make a "c" club team! Yet they were on the field the WHOLE SEASON with NO ADJUSTMENTS!

OUTRAGEOUS: ATHLETIC and FINANCIAL AWARDS given to Friends and Family with below average performance or efforts and NOTHING for the 2 senior defenders who anchored our defense for 2 years and brought us to the STATES last year???? Too unbelievable to be true but sadly these are facts with no opinions.

NEPOTISM HAS TO STOP IN MANHASSET!! ADMINISTRATION:HOW ARE YOU ALLOWING THIS BEHAVIOR TO CONTINUE??? What are we showing our kids? Work hard but expect those that don't work as hard to get rewarded just because they are friends and family!

AND the fun starts again as Freshman friends and family are brought up from the third line JV to Varsity. FOUR MORE YEARS of inferior players stuck in the line up. It's impossible to hide their inferior skills as the numbers showed this year. STATS are FACTS. LOOK at the STATS. Any #'s that Friends and Family were able to put up was against inferior competition even though they played THE WHOLE GAME....EVERY GAME


6 captains for Manhasset? After 2 the term captain becomes meaningless. Maybe this was an early warning sign that there was no clear leadership on the team.

You got beat in just about every aspect of the game, but Syo was a better team? What empirical evidence do you have to support that you would beat them 9 out of 10 times? I say the reverse is true. Other than their all world attackman, no one was winning their individual matchups against that defense. Let's talk coaching for a minute. Not one time did I see a player covered by a short stick, set a pick to try and change the matchup and get your best attackman and best midfielder off a long pole. Overall, except on faceoffs, they also did a better job on ground balls. And once WM went into the zone with that goaltender, Syo was not winning that game. Period.


That is hysterical. Plenty of " we were the better team awards in the Syosset H.S. Trophy case, none that say " NYS Class A Boy's Lacrosse State Champions". Please get over yourselves. Ever wonder why you have a certain reputation ?


what don't you understand about the original post? the post said WM WAS the better team = the post was complimenting WM -

Who are you to call the productive Manhasset players (yes the D1 commits were all very productive - look at the stats) Leadership comes from the top, number one bully on that team is on the sidelines - just listen at a game
Oh and yes Manhasset definitely has the horses - but you have to know how to ride them -

Yes please - look at the stats. Average to below average against the best competition all year, and massive stat padding against the weakest competition. When the team needed points the most against GC, the D1 commits came up small in the biggest moments. That's why they are in the stands watching now. Pretty weak to blame the coaches for kids that can't execute in the big spots.

Dude, it's not the head coach who couldn't finish. He's had a great track record and you look ridiculous trying to pin anything on somebody with that kind of career. Just stop. The Manhasset kids just didn't have it this year. End of story.

If you win more than half of the face offs that means you had an advantage. Not too complicated

Garden City parents tailgating at a High School game w red cups. Wonder where the kids get this behavior and think it's ok. Drinking in parking lots before a HS game? Can't you just have a soda with your kids and a hot dog and go watch? Who drives home?

You are such a tool. The person was complimenting their behavior not knocking it. Loser, I mean sore loser from Manhasset FYI no mention of red cups.

That's what you want to dwell on? The exact classification of a town rather than the fact that this Manhasset team had no heart and couldn't beat the good teams despite the pre-season hype of the community? [/quote]

Lots of other towns that were hyped this year that didnt deliver, but the only posts on here are about Syosset and Manhasset. Why do you suppose that is?

Because the parents in those two towns are Type A psychotics and think they own the game.

Typical Syosset Lacrosse fans. If you don't win its got to be the coaches fault.
John Calabria and his coaches do a great job, but they don't have sticks and don't play the game.
Sometime the players don't play as well as they can.
Sometimes the other team is just more talented or plays better
Get over it. Syosset can't win every big game,
Imagine what the disgruntled Syosset parents would have ranted if they were undefeated Patriot fans beaten by the Giants in the super bowl
The community should be proud since Calabria took over the program and if they don't remember what the program was like before he started became the head coach
Praise sports for the experiences and opportunity they provide the students, and the hard work the coaching staff puts in to help them achieve their goals
Stop being so critical of the coaches at Syosset, or the excellent , hard working, coaches elsewhere for that matter, because the players lost a game
Someone always has to lose
You just can't blame the coach each time
