Lakers also go 3-2 at Morrisville-Eaton meet
Work began again for wrestling teams at Cazenovia and Chittenango through a busy first week of December. For the Lakers, the task turned a lot taller in the OHSL Liberty division when long-time power Phoenix moved in. Cazenovia takes on the Gene Mills-led Firebirds Jan. 15 at Buckley Gym.
Lakers turn back Solvay, Marcellus for 2-0 start
Playing in one of the toughest Class B leagues in the state should, in theory, make the Cazenovia boys basketball team quite a force by the time the post-season rolls around.

After reviewing the Cazenovia school district’s coaching roster and finding a lot of “breakage” — or newer coaches hired at a lesser salary than the coaches they replaced — the Cazenovia Board of Education last week decided there was enough budget savings found to allow them to reinstate the two boys lacrosse assistant coach positions that had been cut from the budget in the spring.

Caz nearly ends Spartans' 35-game win streak
A few inches here, or a few inches there, and perhaps the Cazenovia football team is celebrating one of the landmark victories in a glorious program's history. Instead, the Lakers had to cope with a bitter 35-34 defeat to two-time reigning state champion Maine-Endwell in Saturday night's Class B regional final at Union-Endicott's Ty Cobb Stadium and will wonder, for a long time, how things might have turned out were it not for those precious inches near the goal line.

Mistakes and inconsistency on the offensive end threatened to derail the Cazenovia football team's bid for a third Section III Class B championship in four years.
