This week’s Midwest notebook highlights two Ohio players who are working their way up the best-known records. We also follow up on the Michigan and Ohio playoffs where blowouts have been commonplace.
Man of Moeller
The Cleveland State commit has 306 career points, which is second only to Pat Kennedy who tallied 344 and has held the record since 1997. He is the ninth-known player in Ohio history to surpass 300 career points.
Sigurdson’s 140 career assists breaks Kennedy’s record of 136 to become the Crusaders all-time leader. The senior is third all-time with 166 career goals. He needs only five more to pass alum Brandon Sallee for second.
With a few games remaining for Moeller, Sigurdson is already among the state’s Top 10 leading scorers.
Climbing the Charts
It’s likely that the senior will end up among the Top 2 leading scorers of all-time. Next up on the list is Mat Wilson from Western Reserve Academy (Ohio). Connor Buczek from St. Xavier (Ohio) is No. 1 on the list with 410 career points.
On last week’s podcast, Detroit Country Day (Mich.) head coach Chris Garland talked about the Michigan High School Athletic Association (MHSAA) playoff seedings - calling out the first-round matchup of Brother Rice (Mich.) and first-year program Cass Tech (Mich.). True to Garland’s prediction, the Warriors won the playoff game 29-0.
No game in the first round of the Division I Region 6 finals was close, with every team winning by at least 10 goals.
Ohio’s early playoff rounds have been equally lopsided. Three teams scored at least 25 goals in an opening-round win and much of the first round was dominated by double-digit victories.
Dublin Coffman (Ohio) has rolled through the first two games, winning by a combined score of 47-3. St. Ignatius (Ohio) outscored its first two opponents 38-3. Upper Arlington (Ohio) advanced on the strength of a 35-2 scoring difference. Worthington Kilbourne (Ohio) won 43-4 in its first two games.

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.
