In one spectacular day, the Shoreham-Wading River boys and girls lacrosse teams both won state championships. With a police escort, the teams arrived back in Shoreham Saturday night to a raucous ovation from parents and supporters.

The girls began the day with an 11-9 win over Honeoye Falls-Lima at SUNY Cortland. A few hours later the boys clinched a 10-6 victory over Penn Yan at Middletown High School.

It was the second time both teams have won state titles in the same season. They also did it in 2007. Garden City accomplished the same feat this year as well.
