Wednesday, April 29, 2015: JC's Majewski sets Section 4 scoring mark

   Leading off today: Johnson City boys lacrosse star Shane Majewski reached a pair of impressive lacrosse milestones Tuesday during an 18-1 victory over Chenango Valley.

   A six-goal, six-assist effort pushed the senior attackman over 300 career goals and gave him the Section 4 career points record.

   Majewski has rolled up 444 career points, three more than the mark set by Corning East's Casey Donegan from 1987-90. The Robert Morris recruit's record-setting point came when he scored 2:31 into the third quarter.

   Johnson City is ranked 13th in Class C this week. (Full rankings here.)

   Speaking of lacrosse milestones, Eva Rabson became the first player Putnam Valley history to reach 200 career goals in the girls team's 15-7 win over Our Lady of Lourdes on Saturday. Rabson finished with five goals and an assist.

   More feats: McKyla Brooks of Frontier broke the Section 6 record in the girls triple jump Saturday when she cleared 39-8 at the Dunkirk Invitational.

   Diallo to KU: Two-time Gatorade New York boys basketball player of the year Cheick Diallo will continue his career at the University of Kansas.

   The Our Savior New American senior, a 6-foot-9 forward, made his announcement Tuesday. He listed in Iowa State, Kentucky, Pittsburgh and St. John's as his other finalists.

   Diallo earned MVP honors at both the McDonald's All-American Game and the Jordan Brand Classic this month.

   Coming up: The New York State Public High School Athletic Association has an Executive Committee meeting Friday with plenty on the agenda, including a decision on whether to move its boys hockey tournament from Utica to Buffalo. I'll preview the other meeting highlights in Thursday's blog.

   Interesting, I guess: For the life of me, I do not know what to make of Bud Poliquin's column on this week regarding the interest colleges are showing in a ninth-grade quarterback in Texas.

   Syracuse University is one of several schools to have offered a scholarship to Jalen Mayden of Sachse, Texas.

   Writes Poliquin:

   "Now, it's true that nothing is binding here. And it's also true that Jalen may be connected at the hip to his brother/defensive back, Jared, a junior whiz-bang who is on the Orange board. But it is nevertheless true that Jalen is in the ninth grade, a mere lad fully eight classes behind Terrel Hunt ... and he's been tapped on the shoulder, figuratively if nothing else, by at least one grown man from SU.

   "Weird uncle, anyone?"

   Earth to Bud: I'm pretty sure that what you seem to be insinuating is creepier than what is actually going on -- by at least a power of 10. And lest you forget, reporters at your own media company routinely interact with and marvel at the achievements of athletes younger than the kid in Texas, who won't actually be able to meet with college coaches for another 25 months.

   Coaching news: Spencerport has hired Kyle Trevas as its boys basketball coach. Trevas teaches in the Rochester City School District and was previously an assistant at Irondequoit.
