Apuzzo
Ortega
Hoeg
Just to mention a few that have all played in the last few years from LI


Not taking anything away from the other players listed but Shannon has almost 150 more career points than either Ortega and 200 more than Hoeg. She definitely doesn’t need anyone on here defending her but maybe you should read up on her accomplishments at litopguns.com.

Look no further than the artist formerly know as 91 Orange Fury -> Jesters AA; friends and family deals abound.

91 still has a girls program?

What happened to that really good 2025 team they had?

They all went to Jesters, seems like an odd choice.

You mean like when YJ 2020 Curcio picked up Belle Smith and those other Topguns girls or when YJ took that 2023 Igloo bunch that they could never beat. Didn’t YJ just add a 2027 team this way too.

I don’t recall seeing the TG program doing that but it seems to happen a lot with YJ

YJ probably does it more than anyone. I just think they all do it for the money and if they can get some good players. Even if that means taking some weak ones along for the ride.

And why did this turn into a debate about SS playing ability? I don’t think the post has anything to do with that.

Slop Guns should try to beat Jabroni & Lame-O first before they start calling out Spalina.

Spalina beats Jabroni by double digits even with that new roster he poached.




Hearing SS trying to help poach YJ LOMO/Jan players to TG. From two different people

TG will be too 2/3 very soon
Making moves this winter

I don’t think those four girls she’s “training” this weekend will jump ship. All talk and positioning.

It Is happenning

its off for now

word got out now everyone is shutting up and denying

maybe in the spring i suppose

Ummm you do realize that HOEG played (7 ) games as a senior before the season was canceled right ? She had 52 points in those games or 7.4 points per game. Assuming she played at that level through the season ( 14 additional games that’s an additional 103 points.surpassing Smith by 2 points.

Ortega played her freshman and sophomore year and 7 games in her junior year and trailed Smith by 119 points at that point. Ortega was averaging 6.4 points per game as a junior that’s 14 additional games at 6.4 per game or ( 89 more points ) which would have her 19 points behind Smith going into her senior year.

Apuzzo played only 10 games ( torn ACL ) as a freshman but still out scored Smith by 32 points by the end of her college career.

I surely hope you weren’t using High School Stats to pump up your Smith numbers.

There will be team hopping...Mom's rule the roost, not the girls. TG, YJ's. No one will be surprised, other than their daughter when Mom tells her who she will now be playing for...

Based on her HS stats, she’s the best player to ever leave Long Island. She had an outstanding lacrosse career at all levels as have all the others. Leave at that.

Welcome to the conversation Mr Hoeg! Come on in the water's luke warm!

Actually based on career HS stats, she was the best player to leave LI. They’ve all had amazing careers.

This is a 2025 thread so maybe in your free time you can start a LI Womens lax history thread and organize a poll of LI HS coaches who actually coached against all of these great players and ask their opinion of who they feared the most.

On the team with them at 91. They listen to the guy who will have his daughter on three or four teams in four years.
Not a good idea.

They got caught. (Now it will be quiet time)

Great kids

It really puts kids in a funny position with teammates. (three teams in three years)

Agreed.....parents will ruin it, but I blame the clubs too. The politics are insane. It hasn’t had an impact on my daughter (yet), but I can’t believe my eyes sometimes. Just so obvious.

Can you stop posting about the best player of all time? Who cares?!
