Last season was a memorable one for the St. Lawrence University football team, which went 7-3 overall and finished 5-2 in the Liberty League.
The Saints had a perfect 5-0 record at home and played in five games which were decided by a touchdown or less, going 3-2.
SLU opens the 2014 season on Saturday Sept. 6 at the Coast Guard Academy and has its home opener on Sept. 13 against Norwich.
Here's a preseason conversation with Saints coach Mark Raymond:
After reaching the NCAA Division III Tournament the last two seasons, including an appearance in the sweet 16 last year, the St. Lawrence University men's soccer team has lofty expectations heading into the 2014 season. SLU finished 17-3-2 overall last season and went 7-1 in the Liberty League. The Saints return nearly every key performer from last season, including goalie Aaron Costello, who set a school record with 16 shutouts last season. Here are conversations with Saints head coach Bob Durocher, who guided the program to a national title in 1999 and a final four appearance in 2002, as well as Costello.
Two brothers who were raised in Canton, but now reside near Colton, are making a name for themselves in the hockey community.
Jordan Greenway, a 17-year-old forward, and James Greenway, a 16-year-old defenseman, are both part of the United States National Development Program. Both brothers are 6-foot-4.
Jordan, who has already committed to Boston University for next season, will play for the U.S. Under-18 team this season. He's also a first-round pick by Plymouth in the major junior Ontario Hockey League.
Jordan was with the Under-17 team a year ago and scored 16 goals with 25 assists in 52 games. He played three seasons for the Shattuck St. Mary's Prep School in Minnesota and is projected to be a first or second-round pick in the 2015 National Hockey League Draft.
James, who will play for the Under-17 team this season, played one year for Potsdam High School and has spent the past two years at Shattuck St. Mary's.
The brothers will be featured in Monday's edition of the Watertown Daily Times. Here are conversations with each brother:
The same four teams that played last year met again Sunday at Clarkson University's Cheel Arena to determine Section 10's hockey championships.
Norwood-Norfolk, which lost the Division II title a year ago, avenged that defeat by knocking off St. Lawrence Central 3-2 in the Division II game. It was the first title for the school since 1998.
Massena claimed a third-straight title with a 10-1 rout of Potsdam in the Division I championship.
Both games featured big early leads. Norwood-Norfolk was up 3-0 after one period and Massena led 4-0 after the opening period.
Here are some video highlights from today's contests:
Former Syracuse University lineman Macky MacPherson is scheduled to appear as the annual guest speaker at the Lowville Elks Lodge Father-Son Banquet on March 4.
