S T A C K E D and no matter who responds negatively to this will NOT change that fact!
As the post originally said.....it is too bad the hard work off season will not be on display!

It may look like a top 60 list and the top 10 on the list probably are top 10 girls but NO WAY the whole list is in order. You got some kids in the mid 20,s and 30’s who are top 10 kids. 2 beer kids on TG aren't in top 20.

It's a big joke! It is every year. If you want to be ranked play for YJ


so happy to see the crazy 2023 parents are back. this group is classic!!

This list is Not in order so it is only displaying the top 60 players on the island. Individual Rankings are usually done after Sophomore seasons.

LOL same back of the cage nonsense. You aren't any kind of player unless you play for YJ. This 9th grader belongs in this group. Top players lists when one game hasn't been played this year. You people are out of your mind. I can talk lacrosse all day long but constructively the way it should be, Sharing information, tips & ideas for how to make this sport better. Our girls better. Ready for college play. Like adults. Missing out on the purity of the sport.

This 9th grader belongs in this group???? No clue who you are talking about; outside the hint she doesnt play for YJ.
Most of these lists are silly and for entertainment since everyone is trying to stay sane while NO games are being played. The Newsday top 100 is only legit list for these girls cause its based on what you have done...hence only a few girls are on that list from 2023.
The 2023 list on this site is 60 girls...... pretty much like most 60 name lists, the top 40-50 belong, the other 10-20 can be switched or left alone (subjective); that said its very hard to be on the list if you arent on 1 of the 5 top club teams in this age group on LI.. YJ, TG, Legacy, Jesters, and Elevate.. I am sure there are some very good girls that are not on the list; who cares. they will have time to prove they are elite

How bout these best defender and best goalie polls??? You really think these are legit?? It should be called whose MOM is most nuts?? and will go to social media and beg their friends who Know Nothing about lacrosse to vote for my Sally or Jane. btw the 2 best goalies in 23 is clear. YJ goalie from RP and the Legacy goalie from BBP. Never even heard of most of those kids.

While... I agree 100% with the first part of your post...and saw first hand how it is simply asking as many people across the country that you know to vote AND 100% that the RP and BBP goalie are top goalies...but to ask who are these other goalies might mean you have not been around. The NPT/YJ goalie, the TG goalies names are certainly KNOWN and well up there. BYW...my daughter is Not a goalie.

I agree that the UA tryouts are the real best of the best. those are the top 15 girls in the 2023 and top 6 or 7 in the 2024. Each year the younger grade usually takes up 4-8 roster spots depending on depth. Not sure how many 23 were on team last year but I would bet its single digits. Those girls are the top ones in their class. Whispers and rants will be made that politics plays a part in the selection of the team, but I think UA does a great job at limiting that......i am not a fool and sure there kid be some influence for the last spot or 2 but this team represents the region and these coaches want to WIN. The UA team is the best of the best, If you think your girl deserves to be on these lists and/or she does, then go tryout for the UA team. I believe outside the tryout fee, everything else is free. DEF NOT a money grab, if that was a fear. Good luck to all the girls who tryout, and if you were thinking about it, just do it and take a shot. Making it just to the call back game is a nice accomplishment. My guess is if its on we will see close to 200 girls come out for the team. Good luck to all of them

I apologize, and yes I know most of the names..... a few I didnt, but yes the YJ and TG goalies I have heard of. I never seen or heard of the one that many know according to votes; maybe she is great, not sure. From what I am told she plays for a club that does attend most of the top tourneys. It doesnt matter, if she is a great goalie they will find her

The only team that has demonstrated consistently, on a year to year basis, to be the best in the age group from LI is TG Black. YJ wants to combine clubs with Igloo and claim they are the best in the age group now but that time has come and gone...it is recruiting time.

TG Black has 4-5 of the best 2023's and one of the best 2024's in the country. As a coach, among coaches they are already on the radar of the top lax college programs. Coaches talk to each other. The list a coach makes on the sideline watching the games is the one that matters the most.

BOTC must have needed some increased traffic because polls of any kids that didn't play the season is worthless and is just a parent chest pounder. How many people can Sally call to get to vote for her. You guys must be bored.

Can’t argue with that. TG has been best team for this age. YJ is now.
Both teams are excellent and Legacy is a close 3rd.
The polls are for fun and the best players in this class will make the UA team.
Be about 90% YJ and TG and a few kids from legacy

Not involved in this age group at all, but it sounds like YJ has taken over the spot as top team, but in the end it does not matter, the YJ players will get the benefit of the doubt in recruiting, way before TG. Historically YJ blows away TG in recruiting and this age group will likely prove to be no different. Even if the talent does not warrant this, it will happen. I know someone is going to claim college coaches recruit players, not teams! Believe me, there is no greater leapIng point to get on a coaches radar As a player, than being on the blue roster. For the top handful of players on each team, it probably makes no difference, but the bottom 3/4 of players from each team, coming from YJ is a huge advantage.

Not sure YJ is the better team; the better top players maybe but not sure about the better team yet.

Absolutely true YJ players on the 2nd line of their teams get over recruited and never see the field at the next level.

TG ended last summer by defeating M&D black and winning the Mid Atlantic Championship. So I would say TG are the top team on the field and the YJ are the top team on paper.
