The Midwest is heating up with teams preparing for playoff pushes and players setting program records. This week’s Midwest notebook highlights some of those teams and players.
Boehm set season records for points (112), goals (67) and assists (45) in a season - and that’s just the regular season.
With St. Ignatius entering the playoffs, Boehm also holds the program career records for points (261), goals (157) and assists (104). He broke the previous points record of Thomas Paras who scored 210 in his career. The previous goals record was held by Alex Hornung with 123.
Lockwood is a highly-touted freshman who is second on the team, behind Potter, with 44 goals and 34 assists. Potter has 66 goals and 36 assists.
Hartland is 13-1 on the season with their only loss coming 17-15 to Forest Hills Central (Mich.).
Brother Rice (Mich.) left little doubt which team should be the favorite to win the Division I title this year with a 16-12 win over Detroit Catholic Central (Mich.) on Saturday in the Catholic League title game.
This was the second meeting of the teams this year and the Warriors have won them both. Brother Rice has won 16-straight games and wraps up the regular season with a home game against East Grand Rapids (Mich.).
Loyola Academy (Ill.) has been on fire since returning from a trip to Long Island. The Ramblers have scored 100 goals in their last five games, including three-straight games with at least 20 goals.
The wins have come over Grayslake North (Ill.), and St. Rita, which are the No. 2 seeds in their respective sections, and Lake Forest (Ill.), which is their section’s No. 1 seed.
The Ramblers close up the regular season with a May 16 game against Glenbrook North (Ill.), which is a No. 3 seed.
You Can Make a Difference
When I founded LaxRecords.com, I wanted to create something different. I grew up reading box scores for games and buying baseball almanacs to learn about the history of the sport I played growing up. Once I found lacrosse, that history nerd in me had the idea to create the same idea for boys high school lacrosse.
It started with a simple question from a parent, "who has scored the most points in history?". The seed was planted and I knew that's what I wanted to create. At the time, I was not sure anyone else would find it interesting, so I gave myself a year to find out. As fortune would have it, many of you are interested in the history of our sport.
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.
Since 2014 I've worked 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.
This is where I need your help
LaxRecords.com has grown to a point where it's not possible for me to keep funding it on my own. There is a multitude of expenses with running a website and I want to ensure I'm providing the best experience possible for all the fans.
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.
I'm trying something new
I've created three tiers of donations: $2, $5 and $10 per month. There's also an option to make a one-time donation.
In the spirit of giving back, each donation tier comes with a different reward*.
LaxRecords, Inc. (NFP) is recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity. Donors can deduct contributions under IRC Section 170.
It may not seem like much, but it says a lot and shows me that you genuinely like the content I put out.
Receive a monthly gift that could include:
Everything from previous tiers plus:
• quarterly exclusive t-shirt
(will start shipping once 10 people have signed up)
Make Checks Payable To:
LaxRecords, Inc. (NFP)
3238 N Central Park
Chicago, IL 60618
*To ensure LaxRecords is fiscally responsible, $10 reward levels will go into effect once 10 people have committed.
