“It was fantastic to see the LIJSL teams compete in the League Championship Finals at the Bethpage Polo Fields this past weekend,” LIJSL Technical Director Ronan Wiseman said. “In the 14 age groups that played, six teams from LIJSL member clubs are moving forward to participate in the Eastern Regionals.

“The Polo Fields were a great venue for the event, the officiating was top notch, and with very competitive teams from all over the Northeast region all vying for a place at the Eastern Regionals, it made for an excellent event.”

The LIJSL would like to congratulate all of the teams that competed and advanced to the next stage of competition!
