The boys took second place for the third straight year. Both teams were projected 4th-6th coming into the race. Individually, 8th grader Lucy Fleckenstein and senior Will Girzadas both qualified for the state championship meet.

Skaneateles Boys Golf finished 12-3 this season.  The team was lead by OHSL First Team All-League Players Tyson DiRubbo, Jack Marquardt, and Shawn Luce.  Tyson DiRubbo also earned All CNY Golf Team honors.  
DiRubbo, Marquardt, and Luce all qualified for the State Championship Qualifier to be held next spring at Seven Oaks.
The most exciting moment of the season was during our final match against Cazenovia.  We were competing for the league championship.  After the round, both teams finished tied at 213.  A sudden death match play was used to break the tie.  Shawn Luce played against the number one player from Cazenovia while the coaches caddied.  Both players made par to extend the sudden death playoff.  This time, it was Marquardt playing in a one hole match against the #2 player from Cazenovia.  After a couple more pars, DiRubbo was next to play in the one hole match for the league championship.  After lipping out for the win, the playoff was extended to a 4th hole.  Cazenovia edged out a victory on this 4th hole, as Ben Orbach, from Cazenovia, hit a miraculous shot from the trees to 8ft for the win.  This 4 hole sudden death playoff for the league championship was hands down the most exciting hour of golf any of these kids have ever been a part of!

Boys Varsity Soccer had an unbelievable season!  The kids were fantastic.
We won:

Finger Lakes Cup Tournament (11 year Hosting)
