Minisink’s boys lacrosse team is off to a great start in spite of a challenging schedule. The team stands at 8-3 as it prepares to face its divisional opponents.
We opened the 2017 season with three consecutive losses, including two against top ten teams in New Jersey and Ohio. Once back in Orange County, the team rattled off eight consecutive wins and is looking to make some noise in the sectional playoffs.
Carlos Forde is on his way to become the third leading scorer in Minisink Valley history. He needs only five more goals to reach the 170 career make that would place him third, behind former All-Americans Joe Sessa and Luke Hanson.

As part of their year-round give-back activities, Minisink Valley’s varsity football players took part in a cleanup day at the Town of Minisink Museum on April 30.
While they cleaned and moved displays and equipment, and helped set up a working blacksmith forge, our student athletes learned about local history from museum volunteers and members of the heritage commission.
Once again, players in all grades, and even one eighth grader, answered the call for help from a community organization—and enjoyed lunch and cake with friends and neighbors.
