Even in the offseason, there’s news for boys’ high school lacrosse. Here’s a recap of some of the latest news from around the nation.
The first two players have been added to the HEADstrong Go Lime fundraising list. James Cipolla from Parkland (Pa.) raised more than $2,000 in two days and has a goal of $5,000. Trevor Barber from Donovan Catholic (N.J.) is estimating 250 faceoff wins this season and has already raised $573. I cannot express how important this cause is, so please check out the announcement and consider pledging your 2019 to Go Lime.
TampaLaxReport.com launched its 25 Boys Players to Watch in 2019 this week. They are doing five players per day. This is a group that started the site to help get players in the Tampa area more exposure. Check them out on Twitter @tampalaxreport.
Immaculate Heart (N.Y.) almost had to drop its lacrosse team, but Tonino Alteri was just hired to guide the program and keep it alive. Alteri was a coach in the Junior Varsity in prior years.
This is a good story of a player with a goal and grit. Jake Potter took his college recruiting into his own hands with his high school not having a sanctioned team at Greater Grand Forks (Mich.). Potter was proactive in his recruiting and he will move on to play Division II lacrosse.
Lacrosse in Pennsylvania might not be new, but students at Gettysburg Area School District have expressed interest in it becoming a competitive sport. The players made their interest known at a recent school board meeting.
You Can Make a Difference
When I founded LaxRecords.com, I could have made it into a for-profit company, but I wanted to create something different - there's plenty of recruiting coverage available. I've worked hard over the last four years to keep all content free and open to everyone. My promise to you is that I will never charge for access to the content on LaxRecords.com.
I believe LaxRecords.com is something special. It is like a library or Wikipedia. A place to discover the history of lacrosse. To my knowledge, I am the only person doing this work in lacrosse.
If everyone reading this donated, my fundraiser work would be done within an hour. But not everyone can or will donate. And that's fine.
This year, please consider making a donation of $5, $20, $50 or whatever you can to protect and sustain LaxRecords.com. Can't afford that amount? How about $2 per month? I created a way to make a monthly, recurring donation. If you donate $2 per month, that's $24 per year. Added up over many of you, that makes a huge difference and helps continue improvements.
