For the Syosset Varsity lacrosse team, “Lead the way,” is a slogan that means more than just words; head coach John Calabria motivates his team’s players to take action on and off the lacrosse field. After Hurricane Sandy devastated the South Shore of Long Island, Calabria reached out to the Bulldogs lacrosse program, offering to host their “Battle of the Bay Lacrosse” tournament at Syosset High School.
The tournament was in jeopardy of being cancelled due to the utter devastation caused by the storm to the high school and playing fields of Long Beach. The Braves lacrosse program saw a competitor in trouble and demonstrated that the lacrosse community is there to help in time of despair.
