Friday’s boys’ lacrosse showdown between Massena and Salmon River will showcase the top two teams in the NAC this season.
The Shamrocks are unbeaten in eight games, while Massena is 9-1.
But the contest will carry extra significance.
With 63% of the Salmon River student body – and about 40% of the Massena lacrosse squad – being Native American, the two programs are launching an annual tradition to be called “No Child Left Behind.”
“So, the purpose of this game is to bring awareness to the indigenous past so that it doesn’t happen again,” Massena coach Jimmy Morrell said. “Jimmy’s a huge person with culture with this sport. The best part about this is if you ever come to one of our games, at the end of our game we always bring our kids together.”
