College coaches hit the recruiting trail hard over the Summer, especially in June and July. They line the side of fields in their fold out chairs across the country, and scout talent, and look for future players. When the action gets close, they get a great view, but also run the risk of getting trucked.
High School Lacrosse news and commentary. From East Coast to West Coast, we’ve got high school lax coverage from every region!
Photo credit: Adrln Blog Last week, our friends at Adrenaline, an LAS partner, hosted the 2013 Black Card Showcase in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. In it’s second year, the Black Card event featured 175 high school boys lacrosse players who are counted amongst the top one percent of uncommitted aspiring collegiate athletes in North America. From what I’ve gathered […]
It’s always fun to compare states and regions within lacrosse using polls. It might not be scientific in any way, but it certainly showcases perceived differences in talent, and makes for an interesting conversation. We’ll take a look at the two biggest Top 25 Polls, and see if we can draw any conclusions!
This Summer, LAS will be following around the NJ Riot 2016 club team, and by following them, we will try to gain some insight into the elite travel team scene. We will interview some players, and talk to parents, but let’s start from the beginning with an interview with the NJ Riot founder, Lee Southren…
St. Margaret’s Episcopal School at it again. This Southern California team had a great season playing an explosive brand of ball. Just a few weeks ago, St. Mararet’s faced off against Corona Del Mar in the Orange County high school boys lacrosse championship. At one point, SMES landed four goals in just 69 seconds and that put the game […]
Mike Brand tipped us off to this most excellent video of a lacrosse game from Western New York, which took place in 1996. The game features the Griffith Institute taking on Williamsville South High School in a wet and wild game.
Columbus and Cleveland definitely host their share of dominant teams such as Dublin-Jerome, Upper Arlington, Rocky River, and University School. Don’t get me wrong though, Northwest Ohio has some top level teams too, like Sylvania Southview or Toledo St. Francis, but they have something better than elite teams, and that is expansion!
In our last edition of Ask A Ref, Gordon Corsetti filled us in on how players can, and can not, exchange sticks on the field of play. This week, he’s covering goalie sticks, how they can be used on offense, and we can draw the line.
A couple of Sundays back saw a constant drizzle slowly drench New York City, but that didn’t stop the Public School Athletic League lacrosse championships, which took place at Aviator Sports Complex, in Brooklyn, from going down in a pretty amazing fashion.
The dust has settled in Texas! At the end of the most entertaining season in recent memory, the St. Marks School of Texas has claimed its first State Championship in school history defeating the Episcopal School of Dallas 8-7 in OT on May 5th.
The Wall Street Journal tackles lacrosse, so we tackle the Wall Street Journal. Is lacrosse really the land of golden scholarship opportunity that the WSJ makes it out to be?
We’ll be looking at a number of first year programs this year, and publishing reports from the coaches and supporters of these new teams. Our first report comes from Mary Mattia, out of Highlands, Texas. She played a key role in getting a new program off the ground, and continues to support these boys with their dreams in big ways. We LOVE sharing stories like this one!
From the deep south, comes one of the best assists we’ve ever seen.
