Back Of The Cage is proud to unveil our annual Top 50 Ranked High School Girls' Lacrosse Juniors on Long Island. This list was extremely difficult to make due to the amount of talented players on the island, in addition to the fact that there was no season last year due to the coronavirus.  We came up with this list by reviewing game film, statistics and the impact that the player had from the 2019 season and with speaking with coaches from around the island. Additionally, we received nominations from coaches and also from players/parents who we then researched if that player was not on our radar. Taking in all of these factors, our staff came up with the different rankings and the above list shows the top 20 ranked players in order followed by the other top 21-50 players in no particular order and this list is entirely based on the opinions of BOTC.
