Fall 2021 Season Highlights

8th grader Lucy Fleckenstein and Freshman Tobi DiRubbo have been very strong all year and earned 1st Team All-League honors.
Lily Yengo (Sr), Grace Conan (Sr), Sophia Aureden (Jr) and Caroline Wells (Jr) earned 2nd Team-All League.
The Boys XC team finished 2nd overall in the OHSL Liberty League Meet yesterday and won the National division portion of the meet. For the regular season they were 6-0 in dual meets and won the OHSL Liberty National Regular Season Title.
Will Girzadas (Sr), Seamus Fogerty (Sr), Nolan Gryzlo (Sr) and Aidan Ward (Jr) earned 1st Team All- League Honors. Will has been one of the top runners in Class C all season.
Both teams exceeded expectations at Sectionals on a chilly 30 degree Saturday morning at VVS. The girls had their best finish since 2014, finishing in third place. 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. Lucy is the first girl to qualify since 2015 and Will gives the boys a third consecutive year with a runner going to states.
The state meet was held November 13th at beautiful Chenango Valley State Park. Lucy Fleckenstein ran well and finished in 65th place. Will Girzadas also ran a great race in a fast field and finished 54th to cap off a career which saw him work tremendously hard each year with the reward of earning a trip to states.

Boys’ Varsity Football capped off an undefeated regular season with its 3rd Sectional Championship since 2017.  The Lakers head to States with 9-0 record outscoring opponents by a margin of 380 to 102.  The 2021 team has embraced the ALLIN! Philosophy as it endeavors to keep the season going. 
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.
