The Rockaway Sports Association/New York City Housing Authority 2008 lacrosse season at Farmingdale University is proving to be a true windfall for all. The players have practiced and worked hard all season as they finally realize what the lacrosse world is all about.

The NYCHA Lacrosse team has defeated Bethpage, Smithtown, and the Long Island Gold Coast team. According to Coach Greg Carter, team captains Zach Lopez, Lamar Holloway and Branden Pena, have shown great leadership throughout the season

Coach Carter further stated, "We are truly looking forward to the 2008 season, especially the Yale University Tourney and the 2008 Friendship Games to be played this year in three cities: Vancouver, Las Vegas and Houston.

"Our players and program have taken our lumps over the years, but I am proud of the way that the players have responded to the adversity and tough competition that we have faced by playing arguably the best lacrosse players in the country."

Great games have been played by all of our players, especially Kaseem Holloway and Najee Odum, (our two leading scorers) and Jamel Carter, our assist leader. Defensive standouts include Corey Lopez, Keith Watson, Donelle Harris, our tremendous twins Troy and Troy-Von Young and Roger Green.

Keep up the good work fellas.
