Athlete Of The Week
Congratulations to senior lacrosse player Dante Yacavone.
Athlete of the Week is Homer senior lacrosse player Dante Yacavone.
Lacrosse has been a part of Yacavone's life since the second grade, and since his first varsity competition as a sophomore, he has been a problem for opposing defenses. “Moving up was a big to-do for me, but I really took it personally and I got a lot better and the game just was normal to me and it just took off from there,” says Yacavone.
Homer is off to a 9-0 start and this season.
Yacavone is top five in Central New York in goals and points with 31 and 47 respectively. Dante also strives in the class room, enjoying math and science and will study geographic information systems when he joins the SUNY Cortland lacrosse team next year.
