Congratulations to Boca Raton Bobcat Parker Giarratana for finishing his senior season at Manhattan with five points, putting an exclamation point on one of the best careers at the school.  Parker enjoyed a number high points, being named the MAAC conference rookie of the year, Manhattan student-athlete of the year and finishing high on the Jaspers' all time list with 103 goals, 62 assists and 165 points. Parker is a born and bred Floridian, having played youth and middle school lacrosse in Boca Raton and Delray Beach.  He traveled with all sorts of summer and fall teams and has friends all over the state.  I think it's fair to say, when Parker's name is mentioned, a smile is the first reaction.

Tuesday night in a game which looked and felt like a replay of Friday's Oxbridge win over Bishop Moore, the visiting St. Andrew's Scots took a 3-2 lead into the second half as both defenses were dominant.  The third quarter ended with the Thunderwolves leading 4-3 and the fourth started with SA man up.  No, SA did not tie it up as Oxbridge stopped the attempt and went on to win 8-5.  As the score shows, most of the game was very even and if these two meet again, it will be a dogfight.  Oxbridge continues it's tough early season schedule Friday, hosting defending state champion and number 1 ranked St. Thomas Aquinas.  Must see lax! Scoring: Oxbridge James Dorsey 1,0; Connor Davies 2,2; Bennet Bowers 1,0; Jack Kilian 2,1; Blake Jerd 2,0 Oxbridge Saves Christian Tomei 7
