Sachem East MVP AJ Kiernan and Sachem North MVP Christian Quadrino with Coaches Denning and Grimm along with members of the Pepe Family
The game might have been rained out but the boys and families were able to come to together to enjoy a bagel breakfast. As Coach Denning said it was the greatest game that was never played. We look forward to rescheduling the Garnet & Gold at the conclusion of the season. Thank you to all of the volunteers who made this event a success. Thank you to Hilltop Bagels for the delicious bagels and thank you to our donor who covered the cost of the bagels. The Sachem East boys lacrosse team is very fortunate to have the support of a very generous Sachem community.

Varsity players worked with Sachem lacrosse players in grades 2-8 as part of the Sachem Sports Club offensive and defensive clinics held over winter break. Professional lacrosse players Justin & Troy Reh provided their offensive and defensive knowledge of the game to clinic participants. Great job to our varsity guys Tyler Jordan, Michael Demola, Luke Mangan, Rafael Rodriguez, Jr., Michael Efron, Kyle Connor, Jack Murphy and Jeremy Napolitano. Varsity Coaches Denning and Skillman, JV assistant Coach Debenedictis and Seneca Coach Brandon Riley also lent their expertise to the next generation of Sachem lacrosse players.
