Garden City High School had a lot to celebrate on Saturday evening June 9th after both of the school's varsity lacrosse teams won their state championship games. The girls team traveled to Cortland NY and, after winning a state semi final game, advanced to the state title game against Canandaigua. The team went on to beat Canandaigua 13-8 to capture a seventh consecutive state Class B title for Garden City. The boys, after finishing an undefeated regular season, traveled to Middletown NY for the state championship game against Irondequoit. Garden City had made it to the previous two state final games but each time the team was defeated by Jamesville DeWitt. The third time was a charm for the Trojans as the boys defeated Irondequoit by a score of 11-4. Not only did the win give the boys the state title, they also became the number one team in the nation. Upon their return to Garden City, late Saturday night, the teams reunited on their home turf to gather for one final group "championship team" photo.
