Recap: 2013 Brine National Lacrosse Classic

Baltimore, MD, July 5, 2013-- The East region rose to the top at the 2013 Brine National Lacrosse Classic with Long Island and New Jersey reaching the Championship rounds for both high school boys and girls. Long Island captured the 2013 Brine National Championship for high school girls while New Jersey high school boys emerged victorious edging an emotionally charged Long Island squad to win their first national title.

An estimated 3,700 people attended the 6th annual Brine National Lacrosse Classic over 3 days at the Maryland Soccerplex in Boyds, Maryland including NCAA lacrosse coaches from every division.

In total, 56 regional teams from different parts of the nation, 1,300 athletes and 96 coaches from the United States and Canada participated in the event.

NCAA lacrosse coaches from top colleges and university programs coached the Academy players during the 3 day event - Duke University, Virginia, Yale, Penn, Maryland, Towson, Villanova, UMBC, Georgetown, High Point, Hofstra, Air Force, Bellarmine, USC, Colorado, Monmouth and the University of Florida.

Long Island North swept through the Academy division to win their first national title. The squad was the most talented group of players in the nation and by far the most impressive grouping of players to have competed in the Brine National All Star Lacrosse Academy in 3 years.

Academy boys regional teams from Long Island North, Long Island South, Alabama, New Jersey, Georgia, Texas, Rochester (2012 Brine National Champions) and New England North reached the Elite 8 playoff round.

New Jersey won the Academy girls division by a one goal margin and score of 7-6 over Long Island in an exciting and well-played national championship game.

Academy girls regional teams from New Jersey, Long Island, Pennsylvania and Syracuse advanced to the Final 4 playoff round.

Long Island high school girls won the 2013 Brine National Championship defeating New Jersey 9-3 in the title game.
Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland and Long Island advanced to the Final Four playoff rounds after competitive pool play.

The Final Four games were decided by only one goal.

In the high school boys division, New Jersey North advanced through the Elite 8 and Final Four rounds to become the 2013 Brine National Champion and qualify to play Canada for the 2014 Brogden Cup in Canada.

Regional teams were placed into different brackets for pool play. Teams experienced competition from various parts of the country.
• In high school boys pool A, Rochester (3-0-1), New Jersey South (2-0-2), Michigan (1-1-2), Florida (1-3) and Virginia (0-3-1) combined for a total of 7 wins, 7 losses and 6 ties, proving that the Brine National Lacrosse Classic is a most balanced and competitive tournament.
• High school boys pool B, New Jersey North (3-0-1), Syracuse (3-1)m Washington DC (2-1), Tennessee (0-3-1) and the West (0-3-1).

• High school boys pool D, Maryland (3-0-1), Ohio (2-1-1) Long Island South (2-1-1), Georgia (1-2-1) and New England South (0-4-0).

repost from 2017 LI Forum---

Brine National Lacrosse Classic – parent observations on Middle School Boys Academy division

Of the 400 players over 300 were 2017s, about 80 were 2018s and less than 20 were 2019s

The athleticism at the event was phenomenal. The game was played very fast. All regions had great athletes. I do not think any one team stood out athletically.

The Long Island teams stood out the tournament for two reasons

Coaching – it is painfully obvious that the boys from LI are receiving better coaching day in and day out when back at home. For example, on other teams, basic slide packages failed regularly. One of my son’s teammates repeatedly claimed to be the “hot” slide regardless of where he and/or the ball were on the field. Middies dodged through heavy traffic while wide open teammates were stuck watching the turnover.

Team Play – with two teams for LI at the very least each club represented by multiple players should have had their club rosters split in half. The LI North team did not fully utilize their allotted field practice time on Monday. Why would they? Two games to play in the heat later that day, and these boys have been practicing together for years. Another 45 minutes wouldn’t make a difference. It was clear from the execution of plays that these boys were running plays beyond what was coached on July 1st.

This is very disappointing and a lost opportunity. All Star weeks are all about meeting new friends and passing to someone who is wearing a different helmet than you.

I'd have to disagree with the last statement, the object is to get the best in the region to play the best in other regions, the LI North team was definitely the dominant team, and yes, some of them play together on a regular basis. The opportunity was the fact that they were selected and was able to play against other regions.
So they ran away with the title, it is obvious that this year, LI had a strong showing, let's see how the 2017 players do next year when trying out for varsity and we will also see how our 2018, 2019, and 2020 fair next year. This event is attracting a lot more attention and I can guarantee that there will be probably 500+ who try out for the MS (Academy) group this coming fall.

Both Long Island teams were talented. I think the point is if the Breakers or Crabs sent 8-10 boys to Brine and they could run multile offenses, the results would be different. Maryland needs to do a better job raising awareness of this event. I am not discounting the talent of the Long Island teams, but they did have an unfair advantage over teams that met for the first time when gettng the uniforms.

I have to admit the 2019 group is impressive on Long Island. Alot of very good teams and talent. But actually how many of them would make this team? Obviously puberty plays a role in this because of that two year age difference. But when they get to 8th grade they will be a great group.

This is an all star event. It is not a team showcase. The plays being run by LI North created an uneven playing field. This is fact, not opinion and not whining. All the other teams were quite evenly matched with each other. Rochester did this at the HS level a few years ago. The team practiced together regularly before the event.

The LI team had ZERO practices before the event.

The LI team could not work out plays ahead of time. Yes, 7 of the 25 play on one club team, but the rest were all from different teams and they could not play together or their club teams would freak out.

Long Island is a hot bed. Lots of programs, starting at an early age, all year round with top coaches, lots of competition and lacrosse has been a mainstream HS sport on LI for a long time.. maybe that's whey the LI team was so strong. Nah.. probably not...

Sorry to correct you but you have it backwards. 7 of the 25 kids from the North team were NOT from the Turtles. The rest of the roster was made up of kids from the Turtles. Thats a fact. I do agree with you though, Long Island lacrosse is as strong as its ever been and the 2017 age group is absolutely stacked with talent.

I heard there were a few kids from the Long Island South team that were unhappy about the amount of playing time their kids got. At least one kid left the tournament over it.

Yes, that is true and I hope every college recruiting coach has that players name because if you recruit this player, the father will be a raving lunatic in your face coach! This parent epitomizes EVERYTHING that the keynote speaker Greg Dale, coached parents and players NOT to do... Guess the player was not interested in playing for Duke.
