Southern Tier Sports Report
A sectional champion, a player ranked among the top 10 in the country’s history and a pair of All-Americans are just a few of the highlights from this past boys’ lacrosse season.

It led to some tough choices for the first All-Southern Tier Sports Report boys’ lacrosse all-star team.

Corning’s Ethan Hart scored 54 goals and added 15 assists. He was a first-team all-league pick and he was a U.S. Lacrosse All-American and he is this year’s All-STSR Player of the Year.

Hart also is the offensive player of the year after the 54 goal season for the Hawks this year.

Corning’s Chris Grimaldi scored 57 goals and added 27 assists this year and he is the newcomer of the year.

The Hawks captured a Section 4 title this year and coach Chris Hogue is the coach of the year for the season.

Grant Crossley led the section in save percentage at 72% and he had 243 saves this year. For his career he had 1,081 saves, ranking 10th in the country all time and seventh in New York State. He was a U.S. Lacrosse All-American, a three-time captain and a four-time first-team all-star.

Crossley is not only the goalie of the year, but he is also the All-STSR Defensive Player of the Year.

The first team includes Crossley in goal, Hart in the midfield and Grimaldi on the attack.

The other attackers on the first team were Patrick Carpenter of Horseheads and Mikey Gigliotti, while the other midfielders were Nate Tenbus of Horseheads, Ben Wilcox of Corning and Kaiden Green of Elmira.

The defenders on the first team were Corning’s Luke Plumley, Horseheads’ Marshall Winkky, Dillon Kennedy of Corning and Matthew Baker of Horseheads.
