Summer 2015 was a very successful one for Niners Lacrosse and specifically for the U18 team as the boys competed in the Championship game of all three tournaments they attended – which included the very competitive 26th Annual Lake Placid Classic. The team worked hard, but fell just short in each of those title games. Overall this group of players showed steady improvement all summer and developed great team chemistry. The statement (below) by Coach Tocco speaks to our feeling of workin g with these young men.
“Another great season is in the books. On behalf of all the coaches, I want to say how satisfying it is to work with receptive players who want to improve their game. That is the mission statement and philosophy of the Niners Lacrosse program. We as High School coaches in Section 9 as well as Coach Leary (SUNY Delhi), want the level of play in this area to elevate to the level of the sections around us. We want to see this section gain the respect of the greater lacrosse community. We are doing it one player at a time.
We hope that your sons’ experience with us was a valuable one. We hope they learned a few things and can carry that new knowledge back to their home teams. We hope they act as an ambassador for the game.”
