What’s funny about that is she just happens to play the most pressure-packed position in lacrosse: goalkeeper. A goalie needs to be in command of her nerves when the pressure is on. READ
A season that began with Sayville ended with Sayville.
That’s how it was for the Shoreham-Wading River High School boys lacrosse team. This season has had its share of bumps in the road for the Wildcats, and that road reached a dead end Thursday. READ
