Welcome to BLaxFive.NET

Welcome to the home of Section Five V Lacrosse. For more than twenty-three years we have provided information about games, players and events. It is fun to think that this site has been around longer than 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, almost a million and a half pages to more than seventy-thousand viewers from all over the country and many parts of the world. 

Well over 700 student-athletes will be competing throughout the season which will culminate in the crowning of championships in each of the four classes at the end of May. The champions will then move on to the New York State tournaments which take place SJFFU, Cortland and finish up at Hofstra University on June 10th.

There are all kinds of information in the 2022 Wrap Up article. Also of interest are the Player Pages, the Games this Week PageTeam Stats Page and the Tournament Page.

Section V posts Sportsmanship Video

NYS Section V has posted their first sportsmanship video, a 90 second spot that makes the point with humor and fun.

Communications and Marketing Director, Shaun Jeffers is the driver and Marcus Whitman Athletic Director, Paul LaHue are featured in spot that reminds us the "backseat drivers" are not needed at athletic contests.

Prompted, in a great part by the (national) problem of the loss of younger officials who stop working because of behaviors at games, it is becoming more difficult to find enough officials for games.

Check out the spot, and share it with those who love to go to games.
