Brentwood High School recently hosted the first Bob Hoppey High School Lacrosse Classic.
This particular day was about honoring the memory of the late great Hall of Fame coach, Bob Hoppey, while showcasing the game at two very distinct levels. The goal was to have eight vastly different lacrosse communities come together in order to grow the game, while allowing the participants to appreciate and admire their peers and other communities.
Schools who participated were Brentwood, Deer Park, Riverhead, Northport, Smithtown East, Massapequa, East Meadow and Mattituck-Greenport-Southold.
Hoppey was inducted to the Suffolk Sports Hall of Fame in 1997. He died in in 2013 at the age of 81.
