June 17, 2019 — “Keepers of the Game,” epilogue

Four years ago, a documentary on the girls’ lacrosse team at Fort Covington Salmon River (N.Y.) became a sensation not only on the repertory theater circuit, but on ESPN.

One of the feel-good stories from this year’s girls’ high-school lacrosse season is the fact that the Shamrocks once again won the New York State Public High Schools Athletic Association Section X Class D championship, just like they did the year that a camera crew followed the team for the documentary “Keepers of the Game.”

And, just like four years ago, the team ran smack into Skaneateles (N.Y.) in the state’s octofinal round, and fell 18-3.

The continuing improvement of this team despite numerous obstacles is detailed in this Washington Post story.
