The summer recruiting circuit draws ever closer. Pittsburgh players are spending more time on the road than ever before. If you’re a college coach, you’ll want to see these players compete in person.
High School Lacrosse news and commentary. From East Coast to West Coast, we’ve got high school lax coverage from every region!
Today we have a “Shooting With Gordon Purdie” video, and the best part about this short clip is that it features BOTH Gordon Purdie Junior, AND Gordon Purdie Senior! Junior played at Lynbrook in high school, where he is a 2015 graduate. From what we can tell, he’s still uncommitted! Senior is an Australian lacrosse legend and the Coach at Adelphi!
The Adrenaline All-American Game, played Saturday night in Mission Viejo, had everything you’d expect from an all-star game — highlight-reel finishes, slick stickwork, tremendous athletic ability and plenty of determination. In the end, the balance tipped in favor of the South squad, which surged ahead late in the third period and held off a North rally to post a 20-15 victory at Capistrano Valley HS.
Tomorrow, Saturday June 7th, we will kick off the 2014 ADRLN All-American Game down in Mission Viejo, CA. The AAA is the premier recruiting and all-star lacrosse event in the West.
At the beginning of the 2014 season, 67 Minnesota teams set out on a quest for one goal: to reach the state tournament and play for a championship. After section playoffs those 67 teams are now down to eight, which have advanced into the tourney scheduled for June 10-14. Games will be played at Chaska and Chanhassen High Schools.
The 2014 Pittsburgh high school lacrosse season came to a close Tuesday afternoon as Mt. Lebanon lost to Penncrest 15-10 in the PIAA state semifinals. Now, let’s find out who was the best of the best according to the coaches.
High school athletes could conceivably play in an event every day of the summer beginning in June. This means that there’s a good chance they’re tired by the time early July hits. In early July, temperatures increase. Clubs have to find the right balance between ensuring their boys get exposure and ensuring they aren’t exhausted by the second game of the day.
Check out the 2009 New York State Class C Championship video below and watch Lyle’s 23-0 Lafayette Lancers take on the 19-1 (and #3 seed) Manhasset Indians. Manhasset wins the game 16-11, and the Thompsons weren’t the only greats playing in this one!
With the regular season drawing to a close it is time for sun burns and tan lines, lacrosse pennies, and of course summer camps! This summer I will be traveling on the road with the Rhino Lacrosse crew as we hit the road for five Rhino Lacrosse Academies in Arizona, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, and back to Oregon to wrap thing up in beautiful Bend before the highly anticipated Oregon Lacrosse Classic.
Mt. Lebanon defeated Shady Side Academy 5-4 on March 31st. Tonight, they meet again in the WPIAL title game. We asked coaches from around the league to share their thoughts on how they would defeat the finalists.
This is the best “one man show” high school lacrosse goal we’ve seen in a LONG time! Westminster’s Bryan Smith (#27) takes the face off, fights for the GB, wins it to himself, and then takes it to the rack. It’s sheer beauty in action!
Craig Chase has been shooting D1 and MLL games for us, but back in 2007 he was shooting games and producing sweet, sweet photos! One of the events he shot in 2007 was the Crabfest Tournament, and Craig sent over some photos from the event, and they feature a number of guys who just graduated, or are still in college.
The 2014 Pittsburgh D1 semifinals went down Monday night at Baldwin high school and they did not disappoint.
I took in the New York City Public School Athletic League (PSAL) Championship games for both the boys and girls, and for both the Bowl Division and the Championship Divisions. It was a great day of lacrosse in the Big Apple!

Over in the Bowl Division, first year team Eagle Academy and Bronx Science advanced into the Championship game after their semifinal wins.
