Second-period surge leads Maroons to 4-0 win
A whole lot was on the line when neighbors Skaneateles and Auburn had their latest ice-hockey showdown Thursday night at Casey Park, most notably first place and a possible league title in the Division II American Conference.

Lakers end two-game skid, start late homestand
How else could the Skaneateles girls basketball team’s 2013-14 season get characterized, other than that of extreme behavior? First, the Lakers started 0-2, falling to Bishop Ludden and Westhill. Then it rattled off 10 straight victories, stating its case as a Section III Class B title contender.

A solid league record meant that the Skaneateles boys basketball team would, in all likelihood, make it back to the Section III Class B playoffs.
