Meade may have coached at Levittown Divsion Ave, which is more likely to ..


match those demographics, plus Division was good in football and lacrosse. Of note, the first time I saw Jack Emmer, he was the JV coach at Division Ave. My HS used to play them in everything. I'll never forget the blue mob (they're the Blue Dragons) that came running up the hill to our field. They had more people on their bench than we had on our whole team.

The public schools in all of NYS, for that matter, are much better in lacrosse than the private schools are. The Garden City-Manhasset game is a must-see. My brother coaches our HS. Garden City plays pick-a-score against us. One time, Doc Daugherty, Garden City's legendary coach, met our bus in the parking lot and explained to my brother that he was going to have his starters in for the 1st quarter only because there were some things they needed to work on and then he'd play the other players for the rest of the game. Normally, their starters wouldn't dress against us. Another time, Garden City was winning by an insurmountable margin at the end of the game (just about any lead they had against us was insurmountable) and Daugherty came over to my brother and apologized that he had to put his starters back in because they were the only ones on the team who could intentionally miss the goal when shooting and get the ball back on the Shot call to run out the clock. The other players probably would shoot trying to score.
