OSWEGO, NY – One thing has been certain this year in Max Ziel Gymnasium. That thing is the utter dominance of the Oswego State Lakers’ on the court. The Lakers took down the No.2 and No.3 teams in the SUNYAC this weekend. They romped the Oneonta Red Dragons by a final score of 86-58, and proceeded to clip the New Paltz Hawks’ wings in an 82-53 rout.
