Sports: Rapids hit season half-way point, Fazio reflects on LeMoyne career


Monday begins the final month of the regular season for the Watertown Rapids baseball team. That means the push for the playoffs begins.

The Rapids sit at 10-11 on the season, four games behind Geneva for 1st place in the PGCBL West Division and one and a half games behind second place Utica.

With a number of games left against both Geneva and Utica, Rapids Manager Michael Wood likes where his team sits heading into the four final weeks.

“We know it’s summer baseball, we’re playing every day almost so we can get back in the thick of things really quick,” Wood said.


Fazio reflects on LeMoyne lacrosse career

To say South Jefferson grad Bryanna Fazio had a successful career at LeMoyne College would be an understatement. In her four years with the Lady Dolphins, Fazio developed into one of the best women’s lacrosse players in Division 2.

“It’s everything I wanted. I wanted to go to a competitive program and have a shot at winning a national championship and being dominant,” Fazio said.

Fazio rewrote the history books at the school, scoring 223 goals which shattered the previous record for career goals. She also dished out 93 assists for 316 career points. Fazio was named All-American, All-Region and All-Conference player along with Most Outstanding Player.

Also on her resume - leading LeMoyne to a national title in 2018.

“I think as a player coming in there from high school and just leaving this last May, I evolved so much for the better,” Fazio said.

She also opened the floodgates for other north country players choosing to play at LeMoyne.
