Accustomed to sitting atop the OHSL Freedom division, the Jamesville-DeWitt softball team knew that East Syracuse Minoa and CBA were chasing them, and had to keep on winning.

Hornets get much-needed win, halt Northstars' streak

The well-worn cliché of a season at the crossroads perfectly applied to the Fayetteville-Manlius boys lacrosse team as it hosted Cicero-North Syracuse on Tuesday night. Mired at 3-5, coming off back-to-back road losses at Auburn and Skaneateles where it had squandered second-half leads, the Hornets could either sink further and risk missing the Section III Class A playoffs, or rise up and prove that it would not easily let go of the crown.
