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 viewers from all over the country and many parts of the world. Thanks for your support.

More than 950 young men played on Varsity teams in 2018. The first games were played on March 22nd and the season ended with Victor in their fourth straight New York State Championship game on June 9th. The Section Five "Class D" title was, once again, earned by Penn Yan who, as a result, has won a total of twenty-three Section Five Championships. Also winning sectional titles were Penfield (Class A), Victor (Class B) and Geneva (Class C). Victor won their fourth Sectional title in a row but lost a heart-breaker in the NYS Championship game to Garden City in the last eight seconds. Penn Yan made the NYS finals but lost to a high skilled team from Pleasantville (Section 1). Geneva lost to West Seneca East (8-6) and Penfield lost to Lancaster (11-7) in the quarter finals.
