Coach Lazor steps down at Chestnut Ridge

Greg Lazor and I go back a long way, so this was a sad story to write. He's done an unbelievable job of turning Chestnut Ridge into one of the best programs in the state. Best of luck to him with the softball program and hope he gets to spend some more time with his family. You can read my story bel...

Re: LHAC Championship

So ... was the coin toss critical? Seems like match would have been 42-24 if coin toss goes other way (assuming Muto wins by fall and McGill wins by fall) ... or am I missing something? Nope, you're not missing anything at all. Ridge won the coin toss, but it wouldn't have mattered. When you win 10...

Re: LHAC Championship

So I'm still a little confused on where the matches will be wrestled.  Is the JV in a different gym than the Varsity match?  Is there a concern at all if you go to the JV match the varsity gym could already be filled when you try to move to the other gym?  I'm not familiar with how their gyms are s...

Re: LHAC Championship

This isn't Lazors first rodeo.  I'm sure he has every scenario laid out and ready to go Oh, most certainly not. He and his wrestlers have been in bigger matches than this, so the stage certainly won't be too big for them. He's a great coach, but his lineup is usually so solid it doesn't require muc...

I've covered a lot of big matches at Westmont over the years and have never seen it sold out. But I also plan to get there early just to be safe. :)

Re: LHAC Championship

Is this being covered by any radio or internet? I checked with Bedford radio station. They are not covering it. I'll be tweeting results from my KnopsKnotes account, but I can also see about posting updates live to TribDem.com for those who don't use Twitter. Here's a link to my preview in today's ...

Re: LHAC Championship

I put a Twitter poll up yesterday, and the Lions are clearly winning it. I think this one could be very close, however.  As one D6 insider told me, "they don't know about Beaujon's mystical tricks." That was clearly a compliment, not an insult. No disrespect to other coaches in the area, b...

Re: Forest Hills @ Chestnut Ridge

Should definitely be a fun one between the program that has been the best in the area for a few years now and the one that is hoping to take over that title in the next few years. Forest Hills is coming up quickly, but probably isn't quite at Ridge's level yet. I think the upper weights for Ridge wi...

Shad was out before the start of last season after District 6 found recruiting violations.

Re: Top District 5 teams of all time

You're absolutely correct, it was 1987. I initially thought it was '88, but looked up the brackets and found it was '87. Apparently I didn't make the change in what I had already typed, though. I remember the Phillippis moving to Meyersdale, but didn't recall them going back to Rockwood.
