Each month, ESPN Rise finds the numbers to note around the country. Here are October's Digits from the New York metro area:
6: Goals scored by Rocky Point senior Matt Palasek to lead Long Island to its fourth straight Empire State Games boys' lax title. LI defeated Central, 14-3, for the crown.
0: Years of varsity experience at forward for Sachem East field hockey player Danielle Demola before 2007. After two years of defense, that's where she excelled last year, netting six goals and adding four assists.
