The Plattsburgh State Lacrosse Team (NCAA Division 3) plays in the SUNYAC with most of the other smaller, NY state schools. They’re actually tearing it up in 2011, after a number of season ok performances, at 9-2 with a one goal loss to St. Lawrence and a 2 goal loss to Famingdale State. They’ve beaten up on Guilford, Montclair State, Clarkson and Morrisville State, and while they aren’t ranked, those bigger wins have propelled them to 13th in the Laxpower Power Rankings. And believe it or not, that does mean something.
In their win over Morrisville State, the team wore pink and light blue jerseys to promote awareness for breast and prostate cancer, and they used the slogan, “Protect your equipment, one check at a time”, which is tongue in cheek, but also gets the message across. All proceeds from the fundraising efforts that accompanied the lacrosse game went to benefit the CVPH Fitzpatrick Cancer Center.
Even the Press Republican got in on the story!
Great stuff from the guys up at Plattsburgh, we’re sure the Salt Shakerz are proud of you! Now on to the pictures!
