Dream Factory of Syracuse to host annual kickball tournament fundraiser
To help make a dream come true for a chronically ill child, all you have to do is play a game of kickball. The Dream Factory of Syracuse is hosting its fourth annual Kicks for Kids Kickball Tournament Saturday, Aug. 1, at the Syracuse Kickball Park on Oswego Road in Liverpool. The co-ed tournament, which begins at 10 a.m., lasts all day and features food, games and live entertainment (donated by RMD Premier DJ Ryno), as well as raffles, a silent auction, a dunk tank and a bounce house for kids.
Former coach to return to Lakers football
Lakers perform well
Lakers re-hire leader of 2012 sectional champs
Three years ago, in the aftermath of a stormy, scandalous season that cost the Skaneateles football team a shot at championship glory, the Lakers won a Section III title no one could take away. Joe Sindoni was the head coach of that Lakers team in 2012, but then left to try and rebuild the program at Cicero-North Syracuse, little imagining that he would return to Skaneateles.
Skaneateles relay teams each earn medals
A successful spring for each of the Skaneateles track and field teams would culminate with strong efforts in the New York State Public High School Athletic Association championship meets, contested at the University at Albany, and very nearly led to a gold medal for Connor Hill.
Relay teams prevail; Hill wins boys 400-meter dash
On both the boys and girls sides, the Skaneateles track and field teams made a big impact during Friday’s Section III state qualifying meet at Cicero-North Syracuse’s Bragman Stadium. As a result, the Lakers will be well-represented on the Division II (small school) side during next weekend’s New York State Public High School Athletic Association championship meet at the University at Albany.
Skaneateles girls can't recover from first-half struggles
Only one program from Long Island has kept the Skaneateles girls lacrosse team from a possible run of three consecutive state Class C championships. Mount Sinai, in 2015, did exactly what it did in 2013, leading from start to finish and upending the Lakers 13-7 in Friday's state semifinal at SUNY-Cortland.

Once the Skaneateles girls lacrosse team had locked down its third consecutive Section III Class C championship, two regional games in the state tournament quickly followed, but neither proved too taxing as the Lakers, again, are going to SUNY-Cortland for the state final four.

When the Skaneateles baseball team got a glimpse of the Section III Class B playoff bracket, it saw that, in order to make a deep run, it would need to beat the two sides responsible for winning five of the last six championships, and do so on the road.
Sprinters pile up points; Neal, Grasso, Carlile win events
From sprints to distance runs to field events, the Skaneateles girls track and field team had everything covered – and the end result was a Section III Class B-1 championship.

Skaneateles rolls past General Brown in Class C final
One tense, exciting and stressful Section III Class C girls lacrosse game was, for Skaneateles, more than enough. After escaping Marcellus in a dramatic, come-from-behind semifinal May 21 at CBA's Alibrandi Stadium, the Lakers went to the Carrier Dome Tuesday and, playing a superb all-around game, rolled past General Brown 16-5 to earn its third consecutive sectional championship.

Second-half scoring bursts make difference in 11-6 defeat
For a third time in the 2015 season, the Skaneateles boys lacrosse team tried to get the best of Cazenovia, this time with an opportunity to end the reign of those other Lakers as Section III Class C champions. But just like those other two meetings, Cazenovia got the best of the Laker duel, prevailing 11-6 in Saturday night's sectional Class C semifinal at East Syracuse Minoa Stadium.
Skaneateles, trailing 10-8, scores three in last two minutes
It only figured that the Skaneateles girls lacrosse team would, once again, have to climb over its feisty, hungry neighbors from Marcellus to get back to the Carrier Dome for Tuesday’s Section III Class C title game.
