Boys Lacrosse
The Penn Yan boys lacrosse team ended the season with a 13-8 record after falling to Marcellus in the New York State Public High School Athletic Association semifinal game, Friday, June 9. The game had originally been scheduled for Wednesday last week, but air quality concerns caused by wildfires in Canada and smoke and haze across much of the northeast caused the state to postpone play.
During the game at Tompkins Cortland Community College, the teams traded goals but Marcellus stayed on top, going 2-1 in the first, 4-3 in the second, 6-5 at the end of the third and to a final score of 7-6. Penn Yan tied the game at six with just over a minute to play, but Marcellus answered with a quick goal to go ahead and advance to the final game. Cold Spring Harbor ended up winning the state title for Class D by beating Marcellus 12-5 on Sunday.
Teagan Fingar recorded one goal and two assists in the game. Bryant VanHousen added one goal and one assist. Also contributing were Caden Dixon, Carter Earl, Tukker Fisher and Frank Ochoa with one goal.  Braden Fingar also had an assist. Will Thompson made 10 saves in the goal.
