The NYC Report: PSAL Championships!

The PSAL boys varsity lacrosse quarter and semifinal rounds wrapped up this week in New York City. In the Championship Division, Tottenville and New Dorp will battle it out in the title game for State Island AND City bragging rights. Over in the Bowl Division, first year team Eagle Academy and Bronx Science advanced into the Championship game after their semifinal wins.

The NYC Report: We’re Talking Playoffs!

The 2014 PSAL boys lacrosse regular season is officially in the books. Playoffs start up next week on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, depending on Division. Tottenville (12-0 in the “A” Division) and Eagle Academy (11-0 in the “B” Division) finish the year with perfect records, and Noah Kramer (Stuyvesant HS) finishes the year with 100 goals. Yup, that’s in ONE season!

The NYC Report: Playoffs Approaching!

NYC Lacrosse report

With NYC public school’s spring break vacation over, teams are picking right back up where they left off. Let’s take a look at how teams fared coming off of a long week with minimal practice.

My American Box Lacrosse Experience

Living boxla legend Randy Fraser put together a star-studded team, made up mostly of former PLL and NALL players from Boston and Baltimore. We took on the Vermont Voyagers and Syracuse Stingers up in Syracuse’s OnCenter War Memorial arena. What a weekend of box lacrosse!

The NYC Report: PSAL Bowl Division Update

Welcome to Part 1 of this week’s NYC Report! In Part 1, I will recap the PSAL Boys’ Bowl Division, where the teams currently sit, and who is leading the way. Currently, PSAL teams are on break. There are no games this week coming up, but the action starts back up on April 22nd. The NYC Report still has tons of great content!

The NYC Report: Upsets, Favorites, & College Bound Players

Welcome back to another exciting week of lacrosse in NYC. Tottenville remains as the only unbeaten team left in the “A” division. Meanwhile Eagle is 6-0 over in the B with a scare against Midwood winning 9-8. We are in full swing and all the public schools in NYC are going on spring break. Most teams will still host practice over break while others will look to scrimmage other clubs.

The NYC Report: High School Lacrosse In Full Swing

Last week we had PSAL scrimmage day video, photos from the scrimmage day, a Championship Division North preview, and our Game of the Week! This week we’re back with an “A” South Preview, Game of the Week, Game photos, video, and much more!

The NYC Report: PSAL Lacrosse Season!

Welcome to the New York City Report, brought to you by Apple Lacrosse, NYC’s first lacrosse store! This week Billy Nguyen dives deep into the world of Public School lacrosse and introduces us to some of the teams in the PSAL for 2014.

Traditional Thursday: Cross-Gender Pocket

I recently strung up a bunch of women’s sticks for some local girls in NYC and Ted Glynn. Instead of throwing out the center track, I recycled it and experimented with it in a men’s lacrosse head.

Traditional Thursday: Pita In A Woodie

Welcome back to another Traditional Thursday. Today I re-string a Bacharach Rasin vintage wooden lacrosse stick. Big thanks to Joe Nocella of Brooklyn Lacrosse Club and 718 Cyclery for hooking it up!

Traditional Thursday: Sidewall Experiment

Traditional Thursday Easton Stealth Core

Welcome back to another traditional Thursday. This week, I had the pleasure of stringing up a lacrosse head for long-time LAS reader Paul Jones. He gave me free-reign on this Easton Core, so I had to come up with something special for him.

Traditional Friday? Leather Pull Strings

When you look at this lacrosse head I’ve strung up, you will notice that the bottom holes aren’t like any other lacrosse head. There are only 2 holes and the sidewall is so spaced out that you can’t really pull a leather through the last sidewall like you can with a STX Proton/Super Power. So I decided to use floating leathers in this pocket.
