Here is the Holbrook Heating & Air Conditioning Top 10 for the week of April 13…..

  1. Who is the best boys lacrosse team in Central New York? Jamesville-DeWitt made quite a strong case for it handling reigning two-time Class A champion Baldwinsville 16-9 Thursday night as part of a 5-0 start where the Red Rams have scored at least 16 goals in every game. Homer is the other Class C team that’s unbeaten, though not against competition as strong as J-D’s…
  2. After an opening loss to Shenendehowa, West Genesee boys lacrosse has won four in a row, handling ESM this week ahead of games next week against Baldwinsville and Liverpool. Among the small schools, Marcellus continues to impress, routing Liverpool last weekend and handling LaFayette/Onondaga 17-3 earlier this week ahead of a Saturday game against Ballston Spa..
  3. Two of the area’s best girls lacrosse teams met Thursday night and it was all Cicero-North Syracuse, who dominated the draws and pulled away to beat West Genesee 15-4, this after romping past a very good South Jefferson team 13-1 earlier in the week. The Northstars are clearly the top Class A side given the 1-2 start for Baldwinsville that included a loss to Fulton this week.
  4. Elsewhere in girls lacrosse, Indian River recovered from an opening loss to South Jefferson with four consecutive victories, the last three by double-digit margins. But they still all chase Skaneateles in Class D, the Lakers 3-0 going into a game later tonight against West Genesee after an impressive 12-5 win over CBA that followed a tough 10-9 decision over Honeoye Falls-Lima…
  5. Even though plenty of baseball games this week fell victim to the intermittent wet weather, Cortland, playing on Field Turf at Gutchess Field, has dashed out 5-0 and four of those wins were shutouts, the last three of them in a row including consecutive shutouts of rival Homer 7-0 and 3-0. Cortland won’t have as many games to make up later in the season if the rain persists….
  6. Among the softball standouts in the past week was Sherburne-Earlville pitcher Haleigh Fisher, who in a 7-0 shutout of Adirondack not only threw a no-hitter, but had all 21 outs as strikeouts! There was also shutouts by West Genesee and Liverpool over C-NS, an no-hitter thrown by Marcellus’ Bella Mondello against Cazenovia and Baldwinsville beating F-M to move its record to 4-0…
  7. Track and field is underway. Cazenovia’s girls team swept Auburn and Skaneateles with Susie Pittman winning four events, including the pole vault, high jump and triple jump. There was also C-NS rolling past F-M despite Izzie Sullivan’s sweep of all the distance races and Imani Pugh winning three events to help Rome Free Academy get a victory over Oneida…
  8. Moving to boys track and field, Nolan McGinn and Nikita Domashenko won five events between them to help F-M beat C-NS. Tully’s long league win streak continued with a sweep of Cincinnatus and DeRuyter, while a strong Auburn team led by its distance runners turned back both Cazenovia and Skaneateles, gearing up to face SCAC Empire competition like Central Square and J-D….
  9. Some boys tennis teams are underway, too. Helped by a 3-2 win over Skaneateles, CBA started out 2-0, joined by Manlius Pebble Hill and J-D in that category, while Chittenango won each of its first two matches, too. Cazenovia claimed its opener over Mexico, the Lakers trying to equal its run to the state Division II team semifinals a year ago with most of its team back…
  10. Last week we talked about Marcellus native Eamon Powell captaining the Boston College ice hockey team. The Eagles, at the Frozen Four in St. Paul, Minnesota, beat Michigan 4-0 in the national semifinals, earning a trip to tonight’s national championship game, BC taking on a Denver side that beat Boston University in overtime and is seeking a record 10th national championship..
