 Sorry for the delay in recapping the games from Friday and the two game recaps from PC-STA on the Girls and STA-Jupiter on the Boys but another story has taken priority this weekend and we will hopefully be fully up to date by the end of the day.Many of you have been wondering what happened with the LHP-St. Edward's Region 2 final and I found out what had happened at St. Edward's after pulling into the parking lot at St. Thomas for the Jupiter game.  A parent had asked me if I heard about the incident at St. Ed's and after telling me about it I called my contacts to confirm.  It was confirmed that a senior had died at the school and was given some details about the incident that had directly involved members of the team (not in a negative sense) and was asked to keep details ...

 Unlike most of Rob Kavovit’s Syracuse or Yorktown lacrosse former teammates and friends, I didn’t know Kavo as a lacrosse player.  I came from the hockey world (I’ve skated since I was 2.5 years old).  I had some knowledge of both box and the field game having played some as a youth up North, but I played college hockey in New Haven while Kavo was in Central NY continuing to build his iconic lax career.  I first met Kavo in 2013 when he came onboard to coach lacrosse here at Jensen Beach High School.  I had joined then head coach Matt Sofarelli the year prior, and later took over the program in 2016.  Kavo and I continued to coach together both at the high school and youth levels until his passing.At first, I had no idea who Rob Kavovit was in the lax world, and to be honest,...

  Author's Note:  Jensen Beach HC Brent Mahieu will also be providing his thoughts and remembrances separately, along with information from Rob's family about a Foundation being set up in Rob's memory.  Brent and I have talked and we decided that accuracy is more important than time in this case so look for that column in the near future.   Matt's Submission: My first practice at Syracuse as an incoming freshman was in the Fall of 1996.  I walked into the facility known as the Carrier Dome and was blown away by the sheer size of where I would be playing college ball.  After staring at the enormous white dome that covered the entire top for quite some time, I then turned my head to the field and saw two players having a catch.  #22 and #15 were out on the field early, talking,...
