Welcome back, everyone! I hope you all enjoyed what will be the final rest period before the end of the season. We’re back in action today, with a loaded slate of matches on tap. I’ll be covering Hen Hud at Yorktown, in what will be a battle between two lohud-ranked Top 10 teams. Before we get to the schedule and predictions, here are some things you might have missed earlier this week:

COLUMN: Liberos a confusing, underrated position

OBITUARY: Longtime East Ramapo coach Dave Sachs dead at 68

What: Not my typical work, I was assigned to write the obituary for Dave Sachs, a longtime coach in the East Ramapo school district, who unexpectedly passed away Tuesday after suffering a heart attack. I never met Sachs, but he sounded like a truly remarkable man. Please spare a few minutes and give it a read.

I’ve embedded my Facebook Live chat from Tuesday night. It’s longer than usual, so you obviously don’t need to watch all of it. As always, I appreciate any time you devote to it. You can add me as a friend or “follow” my account to get notifications when I go live here. Follow me on Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat for more coverage at: @Zacchio_LoHud.
