List of 100th Year Celebration Stories

Sometime back in 2021, while researching the history of lacrosse in the area, I was reminded that 2022 would mark the 100th anniversary of the start of scholastic lacrosse in Geneva. My good friend Dave Moore was probably more prepared when he wrote to point out the same thing and ask if there would be a recognition of the accomplishment. Dave and others will be contributing stories throughout the season.

We expect that there will be a large number of stories about players, coaches and events and will post links to each of them on this page.
