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.

Show of sportsmanship in state soccer final a teachable moment

Lakers defeated, 1-0, by Pierson/Bridgehampton
Three years ago, the Cazenovia field hockey team broke through and won the school's first-ever state team championship in overtime over Pierson/Bridgehampton. Those same two teams met again Sunday afternoon at Cicero-North Syracuse's Bragman Stadium with the same stakes, and again it went to overtime - but this time the Whalers prevailed in a 1-0 decision.
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.
