Rick Carpiniello's world of sports

J-D Jinx


No, we’re not talking James Dolan.

Jamesville-DeWitt, which looks to end Peekskill’s undefeated 25-0 season,  Peekskill’s run of three straight state Class A championships, and Mookie Jones’ much-decorated career, has wrecked seasons for local teams in the past. Two instances immediately come to mind.

In 2004, Jamesville-DeWitt knocked Fox Lane out of the state Class A semifinals in Glens Falls, ending the career of Taj Finger and coach George Masters, then ran the table to win the state championship and the Federation Tournament of Champions, too. (Incidentally, Fox Lane was the only Section 1 boys champ which did not win a state title that year: Mount Vernon (AA), Kennedy (B), Blind Brook (C) and Hamilton (D) all were crowned state champs).

Last spring, Jamesville-DeWitt did it in another sport. Just two days after John Jay-Cross River shocked Huntington — the No. 1 lacrosse team in the nation and one on a 63-game winning streak — in overtime, the Indians had to play J-D for the state championship outside of Syracuse. DeWitt beat John Jay 13-10 for the title, ending the fabulous high school athetic career of, among others, Ryder Bohlander.

J-D plays Peekskill Saturday morning, 10:45, at Glens Falls Civic Center.
