Cassidy joined Tyler Donohue on today's show to talk about the Explorers run to the Sweet 16. Cassidy has spoken to Giannini a few times since they received the bid and told us that he's been doing nothing but watching film playing 3 games in 5 nights.

Probably the team to beat in the Cape-Atlantic-League, Mike Bylone's Hermits certainly has a target on their backs. Tyler Donohue had a conference-like rapid fire call with five of their star players, four of whom are committed to Division-1 programs. Joe Gatto, Zach Warren, Chris Oakley, Mike Elfreth, Barry Buchowski all joined Donohue to preview the season.
Atlantic City Press reporter called in and helped preview the top high school lacrosse teams in our area. It's a relatively new sport in South Jersey, Mazda thinks Absegami, EHT and Middle Township are three teams to watch this season. Oakcrest may be a sleeper team in the league as well. Oakcrest went 9-9 last season and has a few players returning. Follow Mazda on Twitter.
