This should surprise anyone. LI dominates the college scene. About 15% of all D1 mens lacrosse players are from LI. The only thing that I saw as a college player that made the Balti teams better was superior coaching and long standing lacrosse traditions. Long Island has more kids and better athletes. Plus, Long Island kids are not afraid to take the body!! The club scene has helped to make our HS programs stronger.

I've got to think God roots for Chaminade being that the St. A's boys have been inappropriately taught to pray in a three-point stance as opposed traditional kneeling preached at Chaminade...

lets talk about Whitman after they play East (Smithtown and Hills)

Their schedule is full of Jv caliber teams. 8 of the 13 games left should not be a challenge. (Your season comes down to Smtithown East / west, Hills East, WI, Northport not your fault sect 11's)

What's wrong with Smithtown West and their schedule?

They seem to be ducking some of the early heavyweights on their schedule(Bronxville & Garden City)...maybe they are not ready.

I know snow, cold, locusts, fire, etc. Some day they gotta play and show what they have.

Keep on playing the cupcakes - then claim to be the best.

Which teams are on your list for quality competition? Who are they playing in the near future that will test them?

Syosset - regular season lion, playoff lamb. Will be interesting to see if this year is different or more of the same.

not sure what you are talking about? they are not regular season lions or playoff lambs - they generally finish the playoffs about where you would expect them, two upset losses and one upset win in the recent past - the rest were about were you would expect them. in the last 10 years they average 12.4 wins and 5.6 losses, they play a pretty strong out of league schedule and the in league schedule is what it is. In the last 10 years they have won 4 county championships and were state runner ups once. By no means a dynasty but also not chumps. you are what your record says you are and they are on average a 12 win 5 loss team.

i am not a syosset fan but they are playing well and only have pequa to beat until the playoffs (which is a free for all)- their parents are probably a bit too excited but let them enjoy the moment - i really doubt u want to be undefeated heading into playoffs - imo suffolk has the the best teams but they tend to choke - i think the owls are legit and csh has no one to play until the state finals so who cares about C - we need a super league because outside of 1 or 2 league games and OOC games the season is a waste of time until the playoffs ...

Agreed! Nassau A never has more than 4 decent teams and at least 6 horrendous teams. Super LI league would be great.

I think the o-fers in Nassau are just about right. No surprises there. Wasn't sure with Suffolk.

It's hard to convey your thoughts when you can't come close to having a basic command of the English language.

What happened to HS sports. In my district you pay your coaches to play on a travel team during the summer and in return they play 9th graders in the last few minutes of a game over upper classman who have waited for their opportunity to play. Coaches of today want loyalty, but perhaps they should remember to return that loyalty to their players. What happened to waiting your turn or earning your spot. I have no problem with young players playing if they are truly better then the older ones, but let the kids play when the time is right!!

Regarding playing time...many dos and do nots regarding addressing this topic with coach. Any suggestions re asking why play time diminishing when being replaced by players with less results in game ( number of teammates questioned sidelined player about why not starting...are you injured, sick, miss practice?). Any suggestions for the player (other than work harder etc) ? best way to approach coach?

Amen brother. HS lax should to at least some degree be about creating memories, especially for the Seniors who have toiled away for years with very little reward. In a game already decided, would it kill a coach to get his bench riding seniors a couple of thrills for the years of commitment? Especially the Seniors who have been loyal to the coach's summer program when there are so many better club options that he could have played for. The 9th graders have plenty of time left and I have yet to see too many 9th graders who are better than seniors.

speaking of future ,.....and I know its off subject ........ will the people who insist on saying that their kid is being recruited when they go to a prospect camp, please be honest. its a chance to see a school, play a little lax and say hello to coach. just because you were invited to a prospect day means nada. its a group mailing from some list you are on and that's it. seriously, not to burst your bubble but maybe its time.
