Each year the coaches meet and give a review of returners at that meeting one could determine who goes in, but if you want a true indication, have a flex schedule so team's making a run can be included and play a team in the power conference. In A Riverhead and Bay Shore could be seen as top 5 teams. They were both young and return a boat load with experience.

SE is a good example, will they be a top 5 team the next two years? Doubt it. Don't go by history, go by what their future looks like.

I know I have a sleeper team next year, just like Islip this year ( sleeper in the sense of a one off, not sleeper in team just showed up, many knew Islip would prove well).

To many 2019 has started. WM will be favored, Suffolk will be favored.

Class B and C have no other teams that would be a threat.

Throw ants and Cham in there, and you will have a true LI champion. About 12 teams in total, 8 make the playoffs. Thoughts?


So basically those teams/schools/communities have a slim shot at a State Championship every year. Playing a brutal schedule to hopefully win 4 games. Sounds like fun


Mt Sinai is definitely better than SE and right there with Islip.


So you picked the ONE down year SE has had over the last 10 (because they are an extremely young team) to prop up Mt Sinai? Overall SE is a better lacrosse program and needs to be included over Mt.


Yes, in the posters “imaginary” super league. Come on dude. It’s as legit as a cartoon. Who cares, I think it should be a league of Unicorns and dragons, both scenarios are equal, because neither will ever happen.

The one consistent thing in this sport is the jealousy and bitterness. Talking to a guy who's kids never developed into decent athletes all he can to is try to diminish the accomplishments of other kids. It is really sad. Looks to find fault with the best academic schools in the country while trying to elevate the school his older ones attend (average school) non-athletes (were not strong in HS ) . knows very little but thinks he is an expert.

One of the people who are rooting against the kids who excell. Sad

Congratulations are due to all the boys who played their hearts out this season.

Long Island can be very proud with its success this year at the state tournament.

Class A Champions Ward Melville (sec 11) wins it 15-2 over West Genesse

Class B Champions Garden City (sec 8) wins it 7-6 over Victor

Class C Champions Islip (sec 11) 9-3 over Westhill

Please log in, send me a PM and we can discuss at great detail your obsession with Syosset and my son, I would be willing to bet that you are not a random anonymous poster from another town that just hates Syo but rather a Syo parent not happy with who plays and who doesn't/didn't.

Call me if you would like 516.330.5485 would love to chat

I just wanted to go back and check this post to make sure I gave my correct phone number (I did) yet shockingly I have not heard from this person yet.

Congratulations WM - GC - Islip on great seasons and I hope everyone (except this keyboard touch guy) has a great summer


I tried to capture the spirit of the thing

Slim shot to make the state final, yes. But, sounds like your team or whoever you root for is scared to enter. Many of these teams if not all would love the competition, throws away all of these terrible games the kids don’t want to play in. Ask any of these coaches or players this it what they want. I totally agree with the teams this guy put out there should be no arguments about them. All these kids play club on different teams together and now finally get to see who is the best, no matter the class size.



Sounds like your school or whoever YOU root for is the #5-8 team in their conference and need to get rid of the big dogs to get a sniff of a Conference Championship, why don’t you move to a town with a winner? Or is yours not good enough to get on the field at one of those schools?

Love this, thx Pete ! I know a lot of us wish we knew who this complete coward is and u made the fact that he is a coward completely obvious . Calling out and constantly making fun of kids & then can’t man up himself after all the trash talk. I don’t think it’s a Syo parent, think it’s a jealous dad from a town that can’t beat Syo but I guess we’ll never know

Conference championships and power conferences are a great idea. Adding St. Anthony's and Chaminade into that isnt a bad idea, but not necessary. IMHO, if you do that their lax programs may steadily decrease. (bring on all the comments of the kids who would have went to the school anyway, Chaminade maybe!) I think it is only a bonus for the publics to play them. I also believe the top Publics should play at least one of them.

I think the biggest point of all of this is, you just dont bless teams solely on their history, but rather, rank them on what is in the pipeline for that coming year. The coaches and kids know who will be good or at least contenders.

Connetquot is a great example. They were real good the last 4 years one of the best in Suffolk A. not sure how the next two years will be.

One could say the same about Smithtown East, will they be good or will they be in the muck and in a dog fight for the 3rd spot and wind up in the ninth spot. They have talent all over but so does upstart Riverhead. Young Goalie with an experienced D returning. Good fogo with some offensive threats. How do you Pick SE over Riverhead? Then you have Bay Shore and West Islip (talk about history), both with great goalie play, returning impact defenders and various offensive weapons. Not sure how you can pick SE over any of those 3 teams. That is why you play the games

The only two i think you can bless as Power Conference teams in A will be Ward Melville and Smithtown West, but again that is because they have returning talent. That doesnt mean the rest of the division will be weak, I think it will be the closest race in years with the top 6 teams.

Instead of your power conference create a tournament of champions like they have in NJ.
Class A v. Class D
Class B v. Class C
Winners play each other
Winner of that game plays catholic champ
There is your true NY State Cham.
IMHO it would of been a rematch between WM and nade

Saw the write ups of 2019 and 2020 "standouts" from this past weekends Main Event in LI. I have always been curious how these self proclaimed recruiting "experts" can see so 50+ games and form an honest, subjective evaluation. My theory is 1) the club coaches feed them info on guys they want to promote or 2) they happen to catch a player doing something great during the half they happen to be on the sidelines and they get mentioned as having a great overall tournament. Something doesnt add up.
