Someone needs to help these parents understand, or maybe they already do. This Big 12 tourney was complete garbage, 6 teams in the 2021 bracket, 6 total teams! That’s ridiculous. The only other team that was halfway decent in the whole bracket was Rock and they are not strong, never had a D1 commit ever and have lost by a lot to Mesa, Freedom, and Team 11. Dukes is not what it was and unless Ebe and the guys make some serious changes they will keep sliding backwards towards irrelevance.
yj thjorn 4-0 down in MD; guess whose guess whose back guess whose back!! Took down Skywalkers and Monster Black and CRUSHED TLC Red!! That Empire team was pounding their chest when they beat tlc red a couple weeks ago by 1g...... WE JUST CRUSHED THEM 10-1.... put empire back in the bathroom with $91 and liberty and Bandits...
ML is a great town team that beats sub-par club teams in lower level tournaments. No way does it beat LE Elite, BBL Black, Tri-State or South Jersey Black Storm. Laker Future even got beat by Red and Black (new Team 91 West team).
ML is a good, not great, town team...and I have seen a few teams handle them pretty easily in the town tournaments...definitely no match for LE, BBL, Tri-State or SJBS

Nice to see schools like BC hosting local clinics on Long Island (and Maryland). They have a lot to offer with Coach of the Year, Tewaaraton Award winner and All World Player Kayla Treanor. Looks like most of their Long Island players including Sam Appuzzo will be at the clinic.
Players could enter the field when game clock is stopped
In a continuation of the free movement rules it recommended last year, the NCAA Women’s Lacrosse Rules Committee proposed another change that will allow substitutions when the game clock is stopped, unless otherwise specified in the rules.
The committee, which met last week in Indianapolis, recommended removing a rule that prohibits players from entering the field as a substitute while the clock is stopped.
After sweeping changes were made last year to allow more free movement in the sport, committee members felt this rule unintendedly slowed the game down.
The 2018 season was the first time players in the sport could keep moving after a foul or violation while the player possessing the ball restarts play. A 2-meter nonengagement area was established around the player awarded possession of the ball. All other players on the field were free to move outside the nonengagement area, too.
“Throughout the season, we saw the substitution rule as one that became hard for the officials to manage,” said Ann Elliott, chair of the committee and coach at Colorado. “It was taking away from the free movement and the increased pace of the game that we all wanted. This small change will have a positive effect and be more in line with the changes we made last year.”
All rules changes must be approved by the NCAA Playing Rules Oversight Panel, which will discuss the women’s lacrosse rules proposal July 25.

When will some of these college rules be instituted on the High School level EX. self restarts, defense allowed in the crease, etc
my son's team played both and there may have been a slight athleticism edge with a few kids but not sure it can be attributed to age as hold backs don't start to middle school if I am not mistaken. will make for competitive summer and great games. game is growing and better athletes are coming. my older kids teams never had issues with them at this age group. all the games were competitive, better this way.
