Webster lacrosse star inducted into Hall of Fame

27 Oct

Fans of Webster lacrosse will be interested in this press release I recently received:

On Saturday, November 5, Dr. Steve Cochi, star of Webster’s 1969 Upstate New York high school lacrosse champion team, will be inducted into the Greater Rochester Lacrosse Hall of Fame. Leading point-getter for the ’69 Ridgemen, Steve scored six of the team’s seven goals including the fourth overtime winner as Coach Bill Guerrera’s crew topped Fayetteville-Manlius to win the championship of the Upstate Lacrosse Conference.

Steve went on to lacrosse All-American honors at Massachusetts Institute of Technology and a highly accomplished career at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Steve’s inclusion at the celebratory banquet for inductees in the 2022 Greater Rochester Hall of Fame class will mark the fourth selection of a Webster lacrosser in the last five induction groups: Bob Menz in ’21, Dick Baran in ’18, and Patrick Dutton in ’17. Dr. Cochi will be the ninth member of Webster’s 58-year-old lacrosse community to join the ranks of local Hall of Famers.

As in the past, there will be an enthusiastic turnout of Webster lacrosse folks to honor Dr. Cochi and highlight the community’s support of The Creator’s Game. Some of Steve’s teammates are planning a gathering ahead of the banquet and induction. To find out more, email larrynogaj@hotmail.com

For specific information about the induction and banquet or to indicate an interest in joining a Webster table, email weblax50@rochester.rr.com or check the Greater Rochester Area USA Lacrosse Chapter website.

The banquet will be held on Saturday Nov. 5 at 6 p.m. at the Harro East Ballroom. Tickets for the banquet are $75, Children 10 and under $15, 5 and under free. Click here to order.
