The Boys Varsity Lacrosse season will be getting onto the practice fields in just about 90 days and the action for Nassau (Section VIII) and Suffolk (Section XI). For our second consecutive year, BOTC will be the leading source of Long Island Varsity Lacrosse news, scores, and stories. We expect to be launching our reporting team into the field for some coverage of the top games once the formal schedules are announced.

Please use this thread to cover the Spring 2012 Season.

Boys (and girls) lacrosse is considered by the New [lacrosse] State Public High School Athletic Association (NYSPHSAA) to be a three class sport, Class A, Class B and Class C. Each class is driven by the number of students at the High School level. Class A is for high schools with 1050 students and up. Class B is for high schools with at least 650 but not more than 1049 students. Finally, Class C is for high schools with less than 650 students. (Notice that the girls breakpoint for Class B and Class C is 675 students.)

The Conferences are built to define "who plays who" during the regular seasons. Nassau and Suffolk have differed year-on-year in how the Conferences are created. Sometimes they have been created reflecting competitive ability; other seasons, Conferences have been created along Class lines.

The State Championships are always run along Class lines, not Conference lines.

[To help even further and illustrate how the Class structure varies by sport], boys soccer is a five class sport with Class AA, Class A, Class B, Class C, and Class D. The full table will be provided in our next post.]

Corrigan Sports Enterprises announced today the seventh annual Under Armour® All-America Lacrosse Classic will take place on Saturday, June 30th, 2012 at Towson University’s Johnny Unitas Stadium in Towson, Md. Each year only 88 of the nation’s top boys and girls high school seniors earn the sport’s most prestigious honor.

Last year the boys’ South team emerged victorious for the second time in the event’s history by downing the North squad, 11-9. The girls’ North team won 15-10 by outscoring the South 8-3 in the second half.

A full weekend of events will be highlighted by the All-America boys senior showcase live on ESPNU Saturday evening at 8pm. The girls will face off at 5pm.

The weekend will once again include a ten-region underclassmen event with boys and girls All-Star teams from Baltimore, Long Island, Midwest, New England, New Jersey, Philadelphia, South, Upstate NY and Washington, D.C. and West.

The three-day underclassmen tournament (June 29th – July 1st) will feature the top national lacrosse players from the graduating classes of 2013, 2014 and 2015. Underclassmen tryout dates for each region will be announced next month.

For more information, visit www.underarmourlacrosse.com. Nominations can also be submitted at InsideLacrosse.com/UnderArmour.

Predictions for the Spring 2012 season : Class A will come down to West Islip and Ward Melville - we will take West Islip in Suffolk to handle all Nassau challengers this year on the rebound.

Class B looks like it will be all Nassau County with Garden City and Manhasset dominating the action - taking Garden City for the crown and defeating the Suffolk Challengers.

Finally, Class C figures to be a toss up all around but we will take Shoreham Wading River. Any comments on these selections?

GC and Manhasset are certainly the cream of the crop in B but in any given year I would say that South Side, Wantagh, Lynbrook and now Long Beach have a chance.

You can also add Sachem North to the mix in D1. Very senior heavy college bound players in the line up.

Its true that WI will see a drop this year. We still have some very good players and Scott Craig does a great job of coaching "system" lacrosse. To me Ward Melville looks like the team to beat. Smithtown West will be around as well as Connetquot. Do

2012 Preseason Boys Fab 50 High School Varsity Teams - New [lacrosse] Teams

Source : Preseason Boys Fab 50 Via ESPN/Powerade

St. Anthony's (#3)
St. Anthony's has won the CHSAA title in each of the last three years and with 13 seniors already committed to Division I colleges, the Friars should be the favorite heading into this season. Four seniors are in the ESPNHS 100: No. 11 Tim Stackpole (Army), No. 38 Sean McDonagh (Harvard), No. 41 Brian Sherlock (UNC) and No. 54 Kieran Burke (UNC). The Friars play a tough out-of-state schedule with Darien (Conn.), Delbarton (N.J.) and California power La Costa Canyon (Carlsbad, Calif.).

Jamesville Dewitt (#6)
Jamesville-DeWitt has allowed double-digits in goals just twice in the last two years. The Red Rams boast the longest active winning streak in the nation at 44 games and return four starters. It could be a different dynamic in 2012 for head coach Jamie Archer with the team returning three of its top four scorers from last year, including Syracuse commit and ESPNHS Top 50 junior Jordan Evans (58 goals, 49 assists). The defense will be young, but the Rams have allowed double-digits in goals just 14 times in Archer's 132 games as head coach.

West Islip (#8)
West Islip was upset in the playoffs last season, but finished 19-1 and returns a talented team in 2012. Six seniors have committed to Division I colleges, including attackers Thomas Moore (Denver) and Brendan Smith (Marquette). Starting goalie Jack Kelly (Brown) also returns. The midfield should be strong with seniors Jon Resse (Yale), Paul Riportella (Marquette) and juniors Ryan Wieczorek (Delaware) and Nick Aponte (Penn State).

Chaminade (#9)
Could this be the year Chaminade breaks through and wins its first CHSAA title since 2008? Twelve Flyers are committed to play Division I lacrosse, including ESPNHS 100 midfielder Greg Rhodes. Overall, eight seniors and four juniors will be playing D-I lacrosse. Defense should be a strength, with goalie Ryan Ricciardelli (Albany) and midfielders Matthew Graham (Michigan), Joe Reilly (Holy Cross), Rhodes and Paul Urbank (Delware) along with defender Brian Porter (Marquette) returning. In addition to its senior class, two juniors from Chaminade made the ESPNHS Top 50 Juniors list: No. 7 Ryan Lukacovic (Virginia) and No. 20 Danny Fowler (Duke).

Garden City (#10)
Garden City reached the Class B final last season and returns five starters. Seven players have already committed to Division I programs, including Warrior 40 alumni Patric Berkery (Pennsylvania) and Justin Guterding (Duke). The Trojans lost three All-Americans on defense, but Virginia commit Dan Marino returns in goal.

Smithtown West (#16)
Smithtown West graduated its leading scorer Kyle Keenan (77 points), but returns seven starters, including seniors Craig Madarasz (Johns Hopkins), James Pannell (Virginia) and Matt Schultz (Stony Brook). The Bulls have 10 players already committed to Division I programs, including two sophomores who have verbally committed to D-I schools: Ryan Keenan (Penn State) and Christian Zawadzki (Maryland). The defense will be young after three starters graduated, but Ryan Adler returns in goal to help provide senior leadership.

Manhasset (#17)
Manhasset allowed just 78 goals (4.1 per game) last season and its defense could be even better this year. Of the four seniors committed to Division I programs, three play defense, including ESPNHS 100 defender Bobby Duvnjak (Harvard). The Indians also boast one of the top face-off men in the nation with ESPNHS 100 No. 79 Ryan Matthews (Johns Hopkins). Matthews' play at the circle should help provide plenty of opportunities for junior Dino LaValle (Brown) at attack. ESPNHS Top 50 junior Patrick Coleman will help anchor the defense along with Duvnjak.

Ward Melville (#22)
Ward Melville returns five starters from last year's 16-2 team. The Patriots boast seven players committed to play college lacrosse, including junior midfielder Jack Bruckner (Duke), senior middie Frank Lucatuorto (Stony Brook) and ESPNHS Top 50 junior Christian Mazzone.

interesting that Syo is #1 and Mass #2 seed in Nassau A and not in the top 50 while Farmingdale is #26 - looks like they went by number of Seniors committed to D1

Joe Lombardi covering Boys High School Varsity for the MSG Varsity Sportsdesk (Channel 14 on Cablevision) named four teams to watch in preseason : St. Anthony's, Chaminade, Ward Melville, and Syosset.

Come next Tuesday, March 20th, the Syosset/Garden City matchup should provide an early indication of where Syosset stands.

It was also reported that St. Anthony's won 16 of 17 faceoffs against Garden City in their Wednesday scrimmage.

Syosset and West Islip scrimmaged the other day. West Islip jumped out to an early 5-0 lead. Syosset roared back and the game ended up a 9-9 tie. A sign of things to come, lots of competetive lacrosse.

This clearly spells the demise of WI. They'll be lucky to go .500 this season. They need to start recuiting like SN and Farmingdale.

Some early season notes :

Scrimmages for Wantagh in the next week figure with Hicksville and West Islip - that should form some interesting preseason results.

Parent at the field wrote to us saying that the Syosset/West Islip scrimmage draw was a strong effort for Syosset but West Islip seemed somewhat rusty - we will see how that plays out.

Garden City/St. Anthony's was either even or a one-goal affair depending on your source - either way, both teams played well in their kickoffs op the whole with St. Anthony's getting the better of the first half play and Garden City the second half.

St Anthony's was physically superior, both had good sticks and tactics. This is ony my opinion, one of many I'm sure.

Wantagh easily handled Hicksville - seemed that Hicksville has a very young team this year. Next will be the West Islip scrimmage on Tuesday which will tell us whether Wantagh can challenge Garden City and Manhasset in Nassau.

I don't think St. Anthony's lost a face off. GC can't lose that many f/o and expect to beat those guys.

Attended the Massapequa/Chaminade game - Massapequa had the game under control at 9-6 with 4:00 remaining and the Flyers played in overdrive from there on - like another team. Massapequa's goalie was solid - kept them in the game. Entertaining game for early in the non-conference season.
