Captains Club-December 2018
Have you seen the latest edition of the NYSPHSAA Captains Club, presented by the New York State Correctional Officers and Police Benevolent Association?

Last month we featured the Lakeland field hockey team from Section 1, the longest running dynasty in an team sport in NYSPHSAA history. The Hornets played in the state title game again in 2018, but there is more to their story than just wins and losses.

If you would like to suggest a story for a future edition of the Captains Club email Kristen Jadin.
