ADK 2019 Takes Bronze at NYS Regional Championships

Congratulations to the Adirondack Region 2019 team on taking home the Bronze medal from the New York State Regional Championships.  The event, held at the University at Binghamton from July 23-25, was organized by Mike and Corey Winkoff of Long Island’s FLG Lacrosse to recapture the feel and passion previously experienced in the now defunct Empire State Games lacrosse tournament.

The team, coached by Doug McIver and Dan McKeon,  earned a 10-9 win over Long Island Parochial, a 7-6 win over Central New York, and fought to a 7-7 tie against Nassau, before falling to Hudson Valley 8-5.  Upon Adirondack’s match-up with Suffolk being cancelled by lightning, ADK was awarded the Bronze based on their record/tie-breakers.

In regards to the team’s performance, McIver commented:

This team represented the Adirondack region in an elite manor. They created a lot of buzz with college coaches not only based on their play but the level of “Juice” they played with over the course of the tournament.
