High School

Throwback Thursday: Wet’n’wild Western NY 1996


Mike Brand tipped us off to this most excellent video of a lacrosse game from Western New York, which took place on May 5, 1996. The game features Grand Island High School taking on Williamsville South High School in a wet and wild game.

What makes this Old School? The fact that no one is wearing a modern cascade (because they haven’t been invented yet) is a good start. Coaches allowing players to wear warm up pants during a game is another.

Enjoy this May 5, 1996 battle from Western New York… can anyone out there name some of the players in this game?
