Description

It wasn't just Syracuse's dramatic 11-10 win over Pennsylvania in the Division I lacrosse semifinal game that made May 28, 1988, such a memorable day. Twin brothers Paul and Gary Gait were playing with their usual flair and up-tempo style when Gary looped around behind the six-foot-high goal and went airborne, extending his stick and jamming the ball over the crossbar and into the front of the net. It was an acrobatic stunt never before witnessed in lacrosse. Even though the spectacular move was eventually banned, the Gait brothers have been heralded for revolutionizing the way lacrosse is played.
