The West Region notebook highlights Mercer Island from Washington which is quietly sporting an undefeated record with wins over teams from three states. Newport Harbor (Calif.) snapped a 13-year losing streak and won its conference.
New Colorado Save Leader
Miles Hart’s 15 saves against ThunderRidge (Colo.) the senior became the Colorado all-time save leader. The Eaglecrest (Colo.) goaltender has 81 saves this season to give him 728 for his career. This surpassed Grant Osterlund’s previous record of 724 that was set in 2014.
Hart’s high school career started with many opportunities to make saves and he stopped 515 in his first two seasons. Last season, he recorded 143.
His 728 saves puts him in the Top 75 all-time in the nation and if he finishes this season with close to the same save total he had last season, he could finish among the nation’s Top 50 all-time.
Newport Harbor (Calif.) ended a 13-year losing streak with a 5-4 win over Corona del Mar (Calif.) last week. The Sailors had not defeated the Sea Kings since 2006, accord to the Los Angeles Times. Rhett Farmer scored the game-winning goals and finished the game with two goals. The win improved Newport Harbor’s league record to 5-0 and with a 12-9 win over Los Alamitos on Friday, the Sailors clinched the Sunset League title.
The Oregon Six
Bend leads the way with an 8-0 record, including four wins over out-of-state schools. They defeated three Nevada teams and Pleasant Grove (Calif.) on a trip to Reno, Nev.
Either Jesuit or Oregon Episcopal’s unblemished record will end when the two meet on April 13.
Oregon Episcopal is the defending champion after defeating Lakeridge (Ore.) 7-5 in the championship game last season.
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.
