In a span of three short months, Albany's trio of brothers Miles and Lyle Thompson and cousin Ty Thompson have graced the front page of The New York Times and the cover of the Inside Lacrosse magazine. In doing so, they have becomes role models for the lacrosse-playing youngsters at the Onondaga Reservation in upstate New York where they grew up. “A lot of little kids on our reservation hit us up on the social networks,” Miles Thompson said as the No. 19 Great Danes traveled to Baltimore for Friday night's game against No. 10 Johns Hopkins at Homewood Field in Baltimore.

SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- The game was billed as the meeting of twins Gary and Paul Gait. It didn't live up to its billing as the Baltimore Thunder defeated the Syracuse Smash, 20-11, at the Onondaga County War Memorial last night.Baltimore's Gary Gait carved up the Syracuse defense for six goals and three assists in helping the Thunder stay unbeaten (4-0)."It was an emotional game for me coming back to Syracuse," Gary Gait said. "Paul and I were out to help our teams win. Sibling rivalry takes a back seat."

He brought a swagger to lacrosse with his flashy play and endless array of acrobatic shots which, decades later, still rack up views on YouTube. How many different ways could Tom Marechek, onetime star of the Baltimore Bayhawks, score goals? Behind his back. Between his legs. Off the alley-oop pass. A crowd favorite was Marechek's "celebration goal," a maneuver in which he would fake a shot, then raise his arms in mock triumph. "When the goalie slumped and turned to pick the ball out of the net, that's when I dumped it in," he said.

Fancy meeting you here, Gary Gait.Not far from Johns Hopkins, little more than a stone's throw from the cradle of lacrosse, lives Gait with his wife of six months, Nicole.This is, indeed, interesting. For four years, Gary and his twin brother, Paul, were the scourges of college lacrosse, leading Syracuse to three straight NCAA championships through 1990 and leaving Johns Hopkins and everyone else in their wake. Many said they were the best offensive players in the history of the game.And now, in what was once for him enemy territory, resides Gary Gait, in a roomy unit in an apartment building in Homewood.
