Garden City - 2015 Eighth Grade Cherokee Conference Champions

The Garden City 8th Grade team defended their 2014 Seventh Grade Division Championship by defeating an outstanding Smithtown team, 10-8, in the 2015 Championship game of the Eighth Grade Cherokee Conference, LISGYLL's premier conference. In 2014, the team went undefeated and this year they did it again, finishing 8-0, to go 17-0 over two years. In 2014 the team went 8-0 to win the Seventh Grade West Conference and then defeated the East Conference Champion, Connetquot, in the Division Championship game.  An impressive team and accomplishment to say the least over their two year run in LISGYLL. Congratulations to the teams players and coaches.

7th/8th Grade Championship

Hicksville (5-3) made an extremely valiant effort in a great 7th/8th Grade Championship game against the above Oyster Bay team. They proudly show off their Finalist trophies. Hicksville had beaten a very good Massapequa team in their semi final to get to the Championship game. Hicksville was led by long time LISGYLL coach, Larry Fox, pictured in the middle, who is the most senior and respected of all LISGYLL's coaches. Larry, with no children on the team for the past 10 years, has coached the Hicksville LISGYLL team for even longer than that.

Seventh Grade Division Champion

The 2014 Seventh Grade Division Championship game saw Garden City playing Connetquot on the Burns Park stadium field on the night of May 20th courtesy of the Massapequa Lacrosse Club.  Garden City was the 7th grade west conference champion after defeating Manhasset 11-8 while Connetquot won the east conference championship with a 8-6 victory over Cold Spring Harbor. The Divisional Championship game was as great a game as the conference championships.  In this closely and exceptionally played game by both teams Garden City won 8-7 to claim the Division Championship.  Better middle school age lacrosse play cannot be found anywhere else in the United States 

The Wantagh 8th grade LISGYLL team won a dramatic and exciting 2013 Eighth Grade Conference A Championship against an extremely excellent Cold Spring Harbor team in the final game of the season.  Cold Spring entered the game undefeated having won their semi final game against a good Port Washington 8th grade team.  Wantagh entered the Championship game with a 6-2 record and having won their semi final game against the always tough and competitive Harborfields team.  In the second week of the season Cold Spring Harbor had pulled out a regular season victory over Wantagh by the score of 7-5.  In the outstanding championship game the two teams went to overtime and Wantagh came out on the plus side this time out.  Both teams are marvelously coached and play the game as well as anyone around.  Congratulations to both teams for two outstanding seasons and years in LISGYLL.  The League wishes both teams the best of luck as they move onto High School.
