2016 Season

Welcome to the home of Section Five Boys Lacrosse. For more than seventeen years we have provided information about games, players and events. It is fun to think that this site has been around longer than more of the seniors playing this season. It is also fun to find a good number of current Head Coaches who still have player pages on this web site. In the last few seasons we have served, each year, more than a million pages to more than sixty-thousand viewer from all over the country and many parts of the world. Thanks for your support.

Almost a thousand young men played on Varsity teams in 2017. The first games were played on March 25th and the season ended with Victor winning their third straight New York State Championship on June 10th. In 2017, New York State added a fourth class and the first Sectional Championship in "Class D" was earned by Penn Yan who as a result have won a total of twenty-two Section Five Championships. Also winning sectional titles were Pittsford (Class A) and Pal-Mac (Class C). Pittsford lost a heart-breaker in the NYS Championship game to Ward Melville in overtime. Pal-Mac made the NYS final four but lost to Jamesville-DeWitt and Penn Yan lost to Akron(10-9) in the quarter finals.
