Lakeland High School Field Hockey wins NYS Class B Championship

Sunday night (Nov. 12), the sign in the entrance read Nine-Peat State Champions as the Lakeland High School Field Hockey team returned from winning their 9th Straight New York State Class B Championship. The team was greeted by parents and supporters as they were escorted by Yorktown Police and Mohegan Lake Fire Department and Ambulance vehicles last night as they returned to Shrub Oak after defeating Vestal High School 5-0 at Maine-Endwell High School near Binghamton.

The Hornets finished 22-0 this year. They defeated Albany-area's Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake HS on Saturday 3-0 in the state semifinal. Lakeland has not lost to a New York State team since 2008.
