Adirondack Region Preview

Traveling from the beautiful Adirondack mountain range, this region is ready to make a statement at the New York State Regional Championships. While these players registered for the New York State Championship, we asked them what they love about the region they live in the most. We received some insightful answers, some funny ones, and some heart-warming responses to that question. We at the LILJ decided to share some of these responses while showing the rosters because the responses show what these players value. 

First, we will look at the boys teams for the Adirondack region. Along with the players, we will look at the regional directors and coaches for each team.
