Newsday recently changed their online program to cover scores and stats for lacrosse (and other sports). You used to be able to go online and click scores and you would see all the scores for that day.

Now you have to select either Nassau, Suffolk or Private. Especially at this time of year their are a lot of crossover games - Nassau vs. Suffolk, etc. As an example, Huntington girls played Syosset on Wednesday 3/19. The game is listed on the Nassau side, but not on the Suffolk side.

Also, they no longer are listing goalie saves as one of the statistics - they only list goals and assists. How about some love for the goalies and defense?

Maybe Larry can help start a grass roots campaign to get Newsday to make some improvements!

My experience with Newsday is not one of success. BOTC is dedicated to ONLY lacrosse....I am open to suggestions as to how BOTC might be able to work with the community to have the coaches come on here and post stats...my phone number is 516.295.0600 and I would be happy to chat with anyone to see if BOTC can set up a mechanism to remedy this situation. Please call after 5p.

I agree. It was so much easier to navigate through scores and game standings last year for varsity lax. I wish they would change it back!

If the kid has 15 goals and 8 assists how many points is that?

You guys need to go back to MATH 101. lol
If the team scored a total of 22 goals, it's impossible for someone to have 15 goals and 8 assists. That would total 23 goals!! Good lord......

Newsday isn't listing the goalies saves in the game stats anymore. I guess the most important position on the field isn't deserving.

They have left out a day of high school sports last week on Wednesday. No results from Tuesdays games. They NEVER DO THAT TO BASKETBALL.

Each day there have been games not listed at all. Last nights 7:00 farmingdale vs Hewlett game for example. It's terrible coverage!

Sorry if this sounds dumb but who gives newsday the "players to watch"? I see on newsdayhighschoolsports on twitter that some girls had their pictures taken, do the coaches submit the names of players? And I don't like the new format either, hard to follow.

In today's paper they had the high school baseball/softball review, have they done the lacrosse review yet? I'm not a newsday subscriber but I would like to check it out if I didn't already miss it.

No, they have not covered lacrosse or any other sports yet. I assume they will, though.

I have no idea who chooses the "players to watch." Good question, though.

That's not true at all. Coaches do not submit names for watch list to newsday.

If that were the case wouldn't every coach nominate a player or two? How would Newsday figure out who to take and who not to?

Coaches can only submit names of players who have won awards the previous year such as All American, All County, All Conference ect. Coaches usually assign an asst. coach or someone close to the program who sends in the scores, stats after every game and a short write up of the game. Newsday only sends someone out to games that are the so called better games of the weekend. They can't cover every game. Do you think Newsday calls every team for scores ? If a coach or someone does not submit info it does not get in. Why do you think there was no pictures or big story about GC getting smiked by Smithtown. GC coach dos not want that all over paper. By the way nice offense GC. COACH F may actually have to coach this year. Does not have the depth or talent of years past.

Then why didn't Smithtown submit pictures and the story to Newsday? You make it sound like GC has pictures on the Newsday editor!

So then no freshman will be mentioned? I mean, in our school the same kids get mentioned all the time and its not fair. They never ever mention defenders, and even though I play offense I think credit should be given to the defense too.

Amen on the dearth of defense recognition. I'd love to see the defenders get more love.

Because the Home team is suppose to report the scores and unless the opposing coach sends in his own it will not get reported. You would expect the home team to do the right thing win or LOSE BADLY.

According to various coaches the players newsday mentioned are upper classmen and/or anyone who was a recipient of an award the year before. Not necessarily based on talent as there are some excellent players already committed to collegiate programs that are not mentioned at all.

Hope this helps, have a great season everyone!

Not based on talent that's pretty cold.
It's obvious you are miffed someone was excluded.
But that doesn't negate the talented hard-working girls mentioned.
