Ranking High School Lacrosse Teams: Why?

0 - Published February 28, 2014 by in High School

There are a couple of polls out there that attempt to rank the Top 20 or Top 25 US high school lacrosse teams, and when you look at it as an extension of the NCAA Top 20 polls, it seems to make some initial sense, but when you look a little deeper, the rationale begins to fall apart pretty quickly. Why do we rank high school lacrosse teams nationally in ONE ranking system? Heck, why do we even rank them at all?

The first Tewaaraton Watch List has been announced for 2014 by the Tewaaraton Foundation. The event was held at the Union Club in New York City last night, and members from across the lacrosse community attended the event.

The FIL 2014 World Lacrosse Championships are rapidly approaching! We’re all extremely excited.

Providence College made the short trip up Route 95 to visit Boston University last night, and the host Terriers dropped a 10-7 decision to the visiting Friars. Originally, the game had been scheduled to be played in Providence, but weather forced a change to Boston, and the game was played at Nickerson Field, where the Boston Cannons used to play games.

I’m telling you this story because we ALL make mistakes. We ALL lose our cool from time to time. I may sit back and lecture most of the time, but trust me, it all comes from personal experience. The dumb stuff? I’ve done it. The mean stuff? Done that too. The divisive, think-you’re-God’s-gift stuff? Yup, that too.

Mike Birney Scores from 20 Yards Out

0 - Published February 26, 2014 by in College, NCAA

We’ve seen some pretty impressive long-range goals scored in college lacrosse, but I don’t know that we’ve ever seen anything quite like this! Failed clears and weird bounces can produce typical 15 yard plus scores, but very rarely do you see an absolute bomb from well outside the restraining box… it’s even more rare to see on of those go in!

FULL Championship Game Video!!!! The Salt Shakerz made it back to the Finals of the Mardi Gras Lacrosse Tournament, trying to win their third straight title in NOLA. Voltron came down to the Big Easy from Upstate New York with other ideas! The fans got a great game to watch even though it was raining, but since it was also pretty warm, no one was complaining, except maybe the refs.

Another great weekend of college lacrosse is in the books and some pretty superb video is already hitting the internet for many of these games. Gone are the days of reading score lines on the back page of USA Today… it’s the future. Take it to the house.

Traditional Thursday: Brine Edge Pita

If you weren’t using a Brine Edge back in the late 90s and early 2000s people would look at you funny. It was the stick of sticks, the stick of kings, and the stick that everyone wanted to use. It was offset, had an open sidewall structure, and was basically the bomb diggity.

The Virginia Cavaliers men’s lacrosse team won their third game of the year (in their third one goal game of the year), topping Drexel 11-10. It’s hard to call a team battle tested this early in the year, but if anyone has the right to do so, it’s UVA.
