Warriors also drop rematch with Baldwinsville

Northstars still unbeaten; await showdown with B'ville
About the only thing capable of stopping the Cicero-North Syracuse baseball team at this juncture in the season is a hot pitcher – or, barring that, precipitation. The rain that had mostly gone missing through the end of April and the start of May resurfaced late last week, just before the Northstars were to host its annual John Ilacqua Jr. Memorial Tournament.
Northstars nearly stunned by East; Liverpool beats West Genny
Though it had lost 4-0 to Cicero-North Syracuse on May 3, the Liverpool softball team had to be pleased with the progress it made since it lost to those Northstars by a margin three times larger earlier in the season.

Warriors have easier time defeating Bees in 3-1 week
Just looking at the numbers, the Liverpool softball team has made up some ground on Cicero-North Syracuse – but has not yet caught up.

C-NS boys win New Hartford meet; Liverpool next
To some degree, every Cicero-North Syracuse track and field season centers around the annual showdown with Liverpool.
