The Nassau County and Suffolk County boys lacrosse seasons are right around the corner. The preseason rankings are usually pretty good at predicting the eventual leaders. Every year however there are teams that surprise everyone and perform better than expected and teams that under achieve.
Who are those teams in 2015?

Saw them scrimmage Saturday against WM. Not a bad team but they need scoring. Defense and goalie looked strong but they need more shooters.

Suffolk A will be the usual suspects. SmE and W are always good with SME touted as being team to beat. WM, Sachem north, Northport all will be good. I have heard WI may have an off year, but they are always good so let's let them play before writing off.

Problem is that with the reshuffle of schedules, some of these teams won't even play each other until the playoffs...

Smithtown East, Ward Melville and Sachem will compete for County title. Smithtown East probably repeats. stacked squad and more importantly, good coaches.

How many D1 commits on that team will see little to no playing time?could lead to some jealousy and infighting about who deserves to be on the field!

I think you could see Sayville take the B title in Suffolk. Their young studs have another year of experience and their defense will be aggressive, large and nasty. I've seen them play a few times in the winter league at Bay Shore, they look VERY good.

Suffolk B is a "pick em" this year. Very good, too to bottom. SWR is interesting with a coach that will straighten things out. They could take it.

Usual powers in B this year, Sayville, Rocky Point, Miller Place etc....however my 2015 pick for sleeper is Hauppauge. Tough, hard nosed team that is going to surprise people. Typically would include SWR although they are still trying to right the ship from the Rotanz firing that was only exacerbated by the subsequent hiring and firing of Arini.

The reference to the boys being in 9th in 2yrs time was a bit of sarcasm. I.e. they will drop back a grade or hold back/pg.

Sprinkled in.
If you keep having boys play at a higher level you will never catch up.
Players will always drop out and give up before they mature with that mindset.
Truly successful programs will have 10 to 15 studs at every level.
Senior / Junior / Sophmore / Freshmen
Better to keep them together for the long haul, instead of always robbing from the bottom to fill the top.
If the glass has a hole at the bottom, it can truly never fill up.
As a result some schools will never be in the running.

Have to agree. East is loaded from last year, plus the incoming Freshman (3 studs at Middie) are off the charts good. I bet they will be preseason Top 5 in IL Top 25. They are that good.

I respectfully disagree. If the glass never gets enough talent to fill 1/2 of the perverbial cup you need to pull up. Look at some of the div 1 teams Longwood Brentwood Patmed William Floyd then Middle Country Bay Shore Lindy That's 7 of the 13 in League 1. Would be interesting to see these schools rosters. I'd bet they'd be sprinkled with underclassman if anyone were true players.

you have schools like hills e with primo 2018 recruits. Hills West had a freshman starter last year. Smithtown west had another freshman playing. Etc. I think when you sprinkle in younger players it strengthens the program.

Who cares the grade of a player, if an underclassman player is your best option You move them up and play them. After the safety of the students, what is a coaches job? I hope it is to win. Then build character and teach the sport to the best of the athletes and coaches abilities.

You say worried, I say welcome those underclassman. If not for them then a lesser talented player gets the spot. And those D1 commits don't want that either.

not sure what your point is here. do you thin k if your kid doesn't have the talent to make team, he or she should be placed on team anyway and at expense of a better player so that he/she doesn't lose self esteem?
Posted By: Anonymous Re: 2015 Spring Boys Varsity Lacrosse - 02/13/15 06:37 PM
Varsity teams should always try and field the best team possible. In my community, the varsity coach would lose his position if he were not successful - a bad year or two is one thing but producing weak teams regularly would not be acceptable. I am not sure where parents come into the equation at all - it seems like parents of older kids that end up not playing much have much more problems with their egos being hurt - they seem to make all of the noise. I firmly believe in a meritocracy - particularly at the high school level. Start all seniors or start all freshmen - whatever gives your team the best chance to succeed. Not everyone gets a trophy at this age.

Agree with your point with only exception in that I find it is the parents of the younger kids egos being hurt - they were recruited early and maybe even committed but having hard time getting playing time due to older players who were late bloomers.

I believe you misunderstood me - the hs coach would not lose his job for a couple of bad seasons but he most definitely be on the hot seat if it got to the 3-4 season period of poor performance - my point is that it is the coaches best interest to field his strongest team possible and the vast majority do ....

just because the last couple of years 9th and 10th graders have been committing does not mean they are better than kids who are class of 2015.
class of 2015 (definitely 2013/14) were not committing in 9th or 10th grade, but they are still on h.s. team . the culture may have changed but the game has not. with few exceptions , very few, in a strong h.s. program, the 11th and 12th graders are better off on the field. they have been playing in system and growing bigger and stronger ...and they waited their turn.

it does not happen because the best programs remain the best each year - if a top hs program on LI reversed and it was because the coach was playing younger players then he would be gone

Exactly, you're not taking things into account like, tenure and union membership... You don't lose a job in that environment for poor performance. Will take much more than that.

Since this is varsity HS not pal or travel I will say. Are you @&$)(;:/- kidding me.

What kind of lesson do you send when a loser talented player plays over a talented kid. A lesser talented kid does not start unless there is an attitude problem from the talented player. Players get adequate time commiserate to their skill or team need.

Yes you reward hard work, but not over talent. You can work hard workers in. Again back to the subject, ask the talented senior or that jr waiting for that call, who they want next to them or in goal or on the x or wing. Their friend or the young kid who is better and has shown can help win.

I tell my son when you get older and work, you are only as good as the people you surround yourself with. Don't let jealousy or pride get in the way. Work smarter not harder.

I think we are overlooking the evolution of the game. Kids starting earlier, training getting better, stronger competition on clubs and town teams..........
The skill level of a talented 9th grader today is much higher than a 9th grader from even 3 or 4 years ago..

How did some d1 bound Sr's do. Goes both ways.

So didn't both Smithtown teams start underclassman. Sure they didn't win it all. But that isn't the point. The point is playing those kids over others less talented (over just being older and working hard being on the team). Seems like the right choice was made to me it brought both so far. You know there can only be two teams in the Li championships. Doesn't diminish the others teams talent.

Hhh was another team with notable few young stud players no Champ game for them, not now at least, that team will be solid coming up. Right call playing those kids.

Some of those lower "seeded"team had freshman and sophomores playing parly that into a year or two when their 'mates catch up and look out. There are some soph who wish they had better Sr's.

The point is if teams had the upper classman that were more talented they would have played. They didn't. Hhh had some posts about this last year. I said more not equal. Bring it on here and say underclassman should wait.

I say not. If an underclassman is equal in talent and poise, the underclassman wins the minutes.

The real loss is not having budgets for freshman, JV and varsity teams. This was the best format to build a progression as well as expose players to HS sports/ lax. Doing it this strengthens a program...

best players play - everyone loves to question the coaches and their motives - I think they do what they think is best for their program - you may not like it but in some cases freshman deserve to start - West Islip were pretty successful starting some freshman and that was already a few years back - kid from CSH started as an 8th grader - SE had an incredible year and I believe they started a couple of freshman - it is no the norm but to say it is wrong does not make any sense - coaches play the best

To be a HS coach is becoming a nightmare now with all the Summer recruiting crap. We all know HS coaches who are in a dilemma where a 9th or 10th grader is committed to big name ACC or Big 10 U but the Junior or Senior at the same position who is not recruited or going D3 is just as skilled and probably physically much stronger and gives the team a slightly better chance to win. Will be interesting to see what he does.

Stop making it a nightmare story. Freshman play because they are better. Coaches know it. I would not be surprised to se a 7th grader play varsity sometime this year. Ok you say a weaker school if you know but div 1 non the less. I am sure the players will welcome it and some May question it but see what happens.

You play the best you have and if any players skill and size fits the need nothing better who cares grade. If they care grade they should get fired!!!! Safety should be the only concerned

He's not stupid, just biased. It's his 9th grader and rising 6th grader he has in mind after all.

The lax world has gone looney tunes. This generation of high school and youth laxers will have a high price to pay for all of the rush-to-commit mindset that has developed around the game.

Show me a 10th grader that knows where he wants to go to college (i.e. the right/best school for the Profession he chooses), and I will show you a liar.

Okay, maybe the rare kid (holdbacks?), who has academics locked down and has matured ahead of his time is ready to commit to a college in 10th grade.

8th & 9th grade commits? Rubbish.

If the senior is as skilled and "probably" physically much stronger and gives the team a slightly better chance to win... the coach will play him. The coaches and EVERY kid on that field knows who should be playing. the only people that have problems with this are the dads in he stands! The anger and jealousy over early recruiting is worse than the early recruiting itself. "Show me a 10th grader that knows where he wants to go to college, and I will show you a liar"? Give me an 11th or 12th grader that knows any better. Most of these kids have been traveling and visiting schools for years. Parents are involved (sometimes overly) and guiding them. It actually gives most of these kids more drive and focus. There are definitely some concerns with the early recruiting but the anger and hatred towards these kids and their parents is ridiculous. Again, LAX 101...play your best players!!! You wouldn't "dumb down" your academics for a very hard working senior with a B average, so don't "dumb down" your athletic fields either!!

The best 17, 18 year olds would blow up any 9th grader, regardless of skill assuming the 9th grader is aged to his grade (14 turning 15 sometime in the calendar year after Jan 1st of 9th grade) the physical development in those years is enormous and it really shows up when there are rare events when a 15 year old gets on the field with 17, 18 year olds...some UA tryouts, the USA U-19 tryouts, etc. I'd say unless you are a goalie or a lightening quick FOGO, the physicality of every other position just smokes the young ones out. A 9th grader making an impact on a varsity team is explained mostly by those teams / leagues being weak. On LI there have been so few like Nicky Galasso, and I don't see any 8th or 9th grader that was freakishly advanced as he was in the recent year or two.

The Utopia team always plays the best players, hard to get on that team. I think it is not as simple as best players play - I do think that HS coaches will be under pressure to play early commits - How does a HS coach explain to a D1 coach that the kids he just sold him on is not playing? or a HS coach might think, wow Lax U coach thinks this kid is great, he must be so I am going to play him and find out.

Angry? No, just realistic. By the way, we'll pass on the early verbal (8th/9th/10th) if/when it comes. Entering 11th grade, probably more realistic our kids will have a solid idea of what they would like to do in life and what their major focus should be. If they don't know that, how could they possibly know what college is the best fit?

It's not about lax, it's about education. None of these kids will play in high school or college if they don't make the grades. So why rush the process?

If a kid is "all that", and a standout talent, the offers will stay on the table. And if he is borderline, or middle of the pack (which is more likely for most kids), then he is better served by taking the time to learn what he wants and finding the best college to fit those goals.

D1 benches are full of early commits, and so are the transfer wires.

Perhaps "liar" was too harsh, misguided might be better suited. Still adds up to rubbish.

What are all of you talking about, we are talking about LI Lax. Where in Div 1 you have brentwood Longwood Copiague Flyod Pat Med Bayshore lindy. I am not talking the best, the best 17 18 year olds lax players don't play there. Sr's at those schools may not be better than their underclassmen. Is that so incomprehensible. Get a grip, in some towns like 'Pequa it may not happen but even the S'towns who draw a large pool you saw underclassmen have pivotal roles. HHH will also be a contender coming up because of those underclassmen they have.

Stop making that all teams have great players that is not the reality. Some of these teams do need to be augmented by the younger players. be it Fresh Soph. I do think come playoff time you will see a few MS's get some time in a blow out.

I think all of you paranoid Jr and Sr's have it all reversed. The reality isnt because the are committed they are playing HS over another student. They are committed in college because they are good and have already proven it. In many cases in an environment much tougher than your HS team circle. Embrace it you may be surprised how they can help your son.

BTW I will agree a child may not have a clue what they want or where they should go but why not take the opportunity given especially at a strong academic institution. Many of these schools these kids are committing to are great schools or destination schools that are cant misses. Only time will tell if it was a hit whether 14 or 17.

I donot believe that the HS coach gets the 8/9th grader the early commit the travel coach does, therefore not much of a quid pro quo. The early commit is a good player. Something you seem to be minimalizing for some reason.

I am sure there are schools that don't need that early commit to play they have strength in numbers and there are those schools that need that early commit to play and be a leader. Why cant you understand not all schools are loaded.

What is the avg size of a HS Lacrosse team.

Are the parameters a function of interest in a particular school and limited on the max end by how may fit on a bus due to budget reasons.

Any more to it.

Most of the better LI high school Varsity teams have at least 50 players on the team. In my town it is always at least that many and no more than about 15 play in the games unless it's a 12-15 point blow out and even then it must he the 4th quarter.

I call "Rubbish" to your post!! You are not realistic, you are angry and jealous. If Duke, JH, ND, UPenn, Harvard were ringing your phone you wouldn't pick up? You would have your child pass on an early verbal commitment to one of the most prestigious schools in the country? Many of these young commits had 5, 6, 7 of these schools calling at the same time because they are that good. I think you are misguided and would be a terrible parent not to give your child that chance. You are narcissistic to believe that you, anonymous Back of the Cage Poster, are more intelligent or better equipped to how to handle that situation. You truly believe 11th grade (16/17) is the "Magic year" to KNOW what they would like to do or focus on? That is ridiculous!! Every child is different. Many of these families, in this situation, have put many hours traveling, visiting schools, speaking with their children, teachers, school counselors, coaches, worrying, deliberating. It was a huge decision and not taken lightly. You actually think you know better?

D1 benches are full of early commits, late commits and walk ons. Transfers happen all of the time, for many reasons.

No one (I know) is "misguided" during this process. The situation was presented and these families did their best to do right by their children and now it is up to their children to do their best to meet their end of the verbal commitment.

Good luck to all of them and "rubbish" to your "we'll pass on the early verbal"

My child is a girl, but the situation remains the same. If Duke, JH, ND, UPenn, Harvard were ringing my phone,and it wasn't the right fit for my kid, I would defiantly say no, no matter how prestigious they are. To accept an offer from any of those schools,just on a prestige factor, shows just how misguided you are. A lot of factors go into choosing a school, cost, will they graduate in 4 years, is academics the #1 goal or is lacrosse. pressure from coaches teachers and parents. Do I think all 7th 8th 9th graders want to play for those schools, yes, because of the "i want to win factor" of early adolescence. I think 10th 11th and 12th graders start to see the work that is actually required to achieve these goals, and maybe the education becomes more important tan the winning, at least it should if the kid has a decent parent that isn't pushing them into something that they want, like the bragging rights of an early commit, rather than their future. who is really misguided Mr. Anonymous poster. If you think your club or High School coach really cares about your kid, than you shouldn't have kids. They only care about earl commit lists on web sites

The Manhasset Goalie and midfield are great examples. Both positions with sophomore commitments to top 10 D1s but with several Seniors at both positions that are not committed but excellent nonetheless and probably better pound for pound given their prior varsity experience and difference in physical maturity. Do they play the recruited young guns against upper class laden opponents or go toe-to-toe using their own upper classmen? Will be interesting to watch. My bet is they go with the young guns until they prove that they aren't varsity ready yet.

Ok... Now go back and read the previous post...no mention of winning being more important than the right fit for each child. There is a lot more to committing early than bragging rights and I'm sorry, as I tried to explain in the previous post, most parents going through that with their children do know that. I'm not misguided at all. We (like most others we know) did our due diligence. You are an angry person with a warped idea of what most of these kids are about.

Now way the Goalie starts on Varsity. He may not even be on the varsity roster. He got the D1 commitment through connections and from his father having played at the same school not based on pure skill. He's good but not great and probably the third best goalie in the Manhasset program right now.

Yes - great point, some anonymous tool makes a stupid post and you do your best Sean Hannity and blame it on Obama - that Kenyan, Socialist, Muslim who has underhandedly ruined your life. Unless of course you are a white upper middle class lacrosse daddy whose stock portfolio continue to do quite well under Obama. The Standard & Poor’s 500-stock index stood at 156 percent higher at the close on Jan. 8 than it did the day Obama took office. Other stock indexes show similarly robust gains. The Dow Jones Industrial Average also has more than doubled, rising 125 percent during Obama’s tenure, and the NASDAQ Composite index is up 229 percent, more than tripling during the same period. Obama that [lacrosse] ruining lives at country clubs all across Long Islands Gold Coast........Thanks Obama, oh wait, Thank you Mr. President

Why is that everyone assumes every lacrosse daddy on Long Island is a privileged rich person? Plenty of blue collar dads I know out there with kids playing lacrosse. Cops, firemen, teachers, heck even construction workers....imagine that!

There seems to be a few contributors here. I am the contributor who reiterates that not all schools are the same 'Pequa has strength in numbers and a few of the Div 1 Suffolk schools (weak or strong) need their underclassmen.

I also tried to understand why someone would have a position that the best 17 & 18 year olds will beat a 9th grader (of course they would) the best 17 & 18 years old will beat the worst 17 & 18 year olds. Stating no team has all of the best 17 & 18 year olds on each team. Some only have 2/3 leaving 9 spots open (F/O and LSM = 12 not 10 players). I was also scoffed at my insinuation of a 7th grader playing.

I wrote why cant some understand this. I think I wrote that eloquently enough. I enjoyed the write up on Manhasset as those are issues many coaches wish they had. I suspect the only way you can answer questions of who will play is through practice.

Practice, that is where the rubber meets the road. You never know how someone will play until you get them all out there. Again injury and time may also help others rise to the top throughout the season.

In my experience the players old and young all know each other a good coach makes it work.

That was a great (math/science) joke - then an even better comeback on the observation.

For those newbies who have not seen a game at Chaminade they cheaped out when they did the field and have to lay mats out on the track for the four corners of the playing field.

Hence there are no 4 corners at Chaminade. and cannot be as hot as 90*

Well played!

Keep repeating that to yourself and at some point you will believe it. Chaminade and St A along with the other Catholics provide a better environment to succeed in school. Keep your baggy a$$ pants and simple class subjects in public school.

"Keep repeating that to yourself and at some point you will believe it. Chaminade and St A along with the other Catholics provide a better environment to succeed in school. Keep your baggy a$$ pants and simple class subjects in public school."

Obviously you didn't take the time to investigate what your local public high school offers - or you live in a town that doesn't have a sufficient tax base to support a strong public academic program.

I had sons in both environments so am able to compare. For u, the difference between Chaminade or other catholic schools is mostly cultural. The academics in the honors/AP classes at the public high school rival, and in most cases (AP) surpass what Chaminade offers. On the other hand, the lack of freedom to be an individual and the very strong alumni base at Chaminade far surpasses that of our local HS.

Did my son who went to the public HS, where baggy pants - no. But he did like the option of jeans and sweat pants. More importantly, he liked and took advantage of 8 AP classes, something he couldn't get at Chaminade - they don't offer any. Is the lax program better at Chaminade than what we have locally - no question, not even a debate. But for him, the strong academic offerings at the public school won over when deciding between the two schools. And, he did great with public HS and club lax and is now happy playing in college and getting an excellent education at a great academic institution.

To each his own, just know your kid and do your research.

I think Massapequa will be very good this year but not the best public school in the country or Long Island or even Nassau County (Lynbrook) so I think the list is kind of silly, they lost 118 goals and 96 assists to graduation from three players Kirby, Byrnes and Berge - that is a lot to make up and then add in new goalie and no returning starting defense and they have some work to do and they might get it done but to rank them as the best public school in the country is a little silly

I think this message is a bit misguided. A run can start and stop at any time. For example, the classes of 2020 crush and 2021 igloo could very well decide to attend St A's and continue their rise in the . It is all to premature to declare a run over.

Now way the Goalie starts on Varsity. He may not even be on the varsity roster. He got the D1 commitment through connections and from his father having played at the same school not based on pure skill. He's good but not great and probably the third best goalie in the Manhasset program right now.

Massapequa players all have great credentials, right down to their 2019 8th grade team.

Solid players, willing to work hard and challenge themselves daily both in the classroom and on the field.

It is going to be a great season, in spite of the weather.

This should give Massapequa a huge advantage over all those towns with weak 8th grade teams, players that don't work hard and do not challenge themselves in the classroom or on the field......

This is a Varsity spot give those boys time to enjoy 8th grade.

That said, you would be foolish not to know how strong the 'Pequa 2019 team is. Along with them are Garden City, Syosset, Ward Melville, Smithtown, West Islip, HHH and Bay Shore.

Those boys moving up to High school next year have Long Island lacrosse staying as a powerhouse. Just given them their time.

Don't hate. Obviously parenting in Pequa is far superior to other towns. No where else are kids challenged to work hard in the class room and on the field. In the words of Hans and Frans Pequa, "you are a bunch of flabby losers".

You may not care now, but those teams with talented 2017's playing varsity, they care and know who is coming up to help behind them.

You are obviously a very disgruntled parent who is living in a depressed school district

or

You are a frustrated former HS lax player who could not keep up and now your son is on a team who cannot keep up

or

You are just an jerk.

Whatever the case may be, you are certainly challenged. The point the original poster was making was that Massapequa was looking forward to the upcoming game against Chaminade. The Massapequa players are just as focused as the Chaminade players, on and off the field. In fact, Massapequa has great players coming up in the ranks, ready to support the Varsity players. Many of the 2019's are siblings to the MHS Varsity players as well as siblings of the Chaminade players.

It is in the blood.

Get ready.

No secret that a lot of Pequa kids go to Catholics in the past. I think the poster is promoting the Junior High boys. He must have one. They are good players. Same as a few other towns. Several quality players scattered amongst several club teams. Where is the big deal ?

That is what they said when 5 Massapequa kids left for Catholic schools a few years back,class of 2014. Then Massapequa wins the state tournament in 2014. It must be a good sign. FYI, the people saying the better kids are leaving for Catholic schools are the parents of the players leaving.

Chaminade players all have great credentials, right down to the Massapequa 2019 8th grade team whose best players will be going to Chaminade next year.

Solid players, willing to work hard and challenge themselves daily in the classroom, in church and on the field.

It is going to be a great season, in spite of the weather.

The top talent on the Muddogs 2019 will NOT BE ATTENDING CHAMINADE in September 2015.

FYI......Pequa 2019's have some lax players going to Chaminade. Are any of them considered to be the best players? NO!


The best 2019 Muddogs are NOT attending Chaminade in September.

Look at he roster of 2019 Muddogs:
Of the boys attending 8th grade at Catholic schools now, the best have turned down Chaminade.
Of the Berner 8th graders who play on Muddogs, the best players have also turned down Chaminade.

Bottom line is MHS has talent and they have the players ready to rise through the ranks over the next 2-3 years to remain a powerhouse.

It is a fact that the varsity players have younger brothers who are just as talented. In fact, some of the varisty Chaminade players have younger brothers who have opted to stay in Pequa.

Looking forward to ALL of the teams playing. Our Strong Island players are very talented. The best part is, holdbacks are not an issue here and ALL of our boys are good kids.

Wishing all of the players a healthy season!

Are you even reading the posts????

No one is suggesting younger players be brought up. Happy to have the middle school, JVA's, B's out there working and playing the game.

It sounds to me that 'Pequa is looking forward the season beginning. Happy to match up with the best and compete.

As I am sure, all of the schools are.

Good bye to Old Man Winter.
Lax Bros are ready to take the field.

Pequa has a history of tremendous goalies dating back to Draper. Doc Schneider-UMASS, his younger brother Eric was named Academic All American now captain of Hopkins, then Russo, Valdini was phenomenal in goal last season and the current senior keeper (injured) is signed. MHS has talent in the cage down to the MS all working and all proud to be Chiefs.

Dear Mr. Pequa - please tone it down a notch, It took Ward Melville, Garden City and Manhasset over 50 years of "Powerhouse" lacrosse for everybody to hate them, Massapequa has had an OK run the last 10 to 15 years and you act as if you are "the Inventors" you are an OK team in an a weak conference, get over yourselves

I believe that there are 2 2018 goalies from Massapequa headed to Chaminade. One is there this year as a true 2018 and the other is repeating and will be a 2019.

Mr. I thought I moved to a good school district but realized now that my son is trying to play lacrosse, I did not:

All I said was MHS has talent and that there is talent coming up. Powerhouse is used because:

#1-STATE CHAMPS, not by luck, so do not even go there
#2-The boys who can really play the game of lacrosse in Massapequa are on the top club teams, especially the younger players. However, it takes all levels of our talent working together which makes us a powerhouse. We love all of our players, the great and mighty, the meeker and bold. They all really work hard and really work well together.

So yes, Powerhouse is what 'Pequa is now and what we will strive to remain.

We are now dimming the lights on GC, Manhasset, WM.

Looking forward to the season beginning soon. Wishing all of our competitors well.

Sad that some people cannot be happy for another HS.
There is nothing to "get over ourselves" for.
Obviously, you have not been reading the posts.
MHS parents are proud of our players, at all levels.
We are sure happy to have JV and MS players primed and ready to play for their perspective teams and even happier to know they are really great lacrosse players, on top tier club teams, who are training to be the best Varsity players for MHS no matter when they are called upon.

Nothing was said in bad taste about another HS team.
Players were not singled out.
No where, in these the last few pages, has the tone been anything but upbeat and pleasant about facing competition in the 2015 season.

Looking forward to it. Wishing everyone well.

So, you, Mr. Coulda Shoulda Woulda get over yourself.

The best program has traditionally been Farmingdale - not even close. But since they won the state title in 2011 the program has been mediocre for whatever reason. Just look at the history - Massapequa is good, Syosset ok.

Farmingdales youth teams are very poorly ran and fractured at best. Good talent but none of them play for F'dale anymore and it shows in the MS HS levels.

totally agree with this assessment, Last 10 years
Massapequa 4 county champs, 1 Long Island champ and 1 State Champ
Syosset 3 county champs, 1 Long Island champ and 1 State runnerup
Farmingdale 2 County Champs, 1 Long Island and 1 State
Hicksville 1 Count Champ

All good but clearly no powerhouses among them

They may lose both games but nobody is holding that offense to 4 or 5 goals unless they stall - they have a crazy amount of talent on the offensive side of the field and if they let the dogs out they should average 10 - 12 goals a game

Please explain how the weather adversely effected one team and not the other? a better argument might be that Massapequa jelled later in the year and in May they probably would have beaten GC. The Cheifs started the season 2-2 averaging a 8.75 goals per game - they then won their next 17 straight averaging 14.5 goals a game. and averaged 16.5 goals per game in the playoffs.

GC beats Syo 6-3 on 3/18 and Mass 6-5 a week later so based on that you would think Mass v. Syo would be a good game and it probably would have been a closer game in March but once the Chiefs went on their roll the beat Syosset by 9 and 7.

good points on this post. pequa was , at least last year a far better team. they could score in bunches. the other team averaged , I think 4 or 5 goals a game. that's counting several very lopsided high scoring games.

luck had nothing to do with the Massapequa coach called a time out in overtime when his 50 goal scorer had the ball on the crease -

I am from pequa and watched them play a couple of games. I dont have any boys on the team as my kids are younger. I will tell you. I saw them play farmingdale last year and they won a very close but boring game where they went iso all the time and slowed the game down a lot. Fast forward a few wks later. Dont know what happened or what coach said but saw them play i guess their 2nd game against syosset and they won like 18 to 5. Completely diff team with tempo and how they moved and pushed the ball. Didnt look back since. Yes they went on a tear after. Dont think there was a team in the land that could have beat them imcluding boys latin. Sorry SE.

Very physical defense. Saw them play since 3rd grade. I believe they are all committed to play at the next level.

Enough about Massapequa...last year was their year...Decent lacrosse players this year but short on athletes--just look at their football, basketball, soccer and wrestling seasons. Syosset's year this year.

Edited for the anti semetic undertone.

Do any other teams on LI play a schedule against 5 or more other preseason national top 25 teams?

I think that reference was misinterpreted but I apologize nonetheless. Wouldn't Syosset fit the same description if not more so?? it was a play on words and not meant in the context you surmised it to be. To be honest, I did not know that about Massapequa--my ill informed stereotyope of the town was that it was majority Italian population. Hope that doesn't offend anyone.

Someone sounds jealous
Don't worry Syosset has enough great athletes to make a winning team in any sport and if you're any athlete yourself you would know that one player can't possibly do everything and bring a team that far. It takes a team

only a partial schedule so far for St.A's...but they almost always play Ytown and pick up another tough game from CT NJ PA or MD

would be nice to see them play Syosset or Smithtown East as nearby powerhouses, but that will probably only happen when GC and CHS play (never) so I suppose that is just a pipedream too.

There's a reason the taxes are high in Syosset and it's the same reason that when people move to LI or decide to upgrade from elsewhere in the area that they choose high tax areas like Syosset, to have the top schools and great athletic programs ..... You get what you pay for . If you didn't then believe me we'd all choose to pay less in taxes. So again, as the other poster said, there's no mystery to getting new kids moving into a top district at beginning of school year . Parents did their homework and the "draw" was to get the best for their kids . And if they can afford it then who can blame them??

Why would anyone throw comments out to the world without any backup info, grade school is over. If there is info out there that can lead to a discussion and not a feeding frenzy on he said she said BS, then put it out there. Concerns about HS recommendations is a valid concern

That's right. So everyone knows your the same troll that goes from thread to thread starting trouble. Like a child you will be watched and edited until you realize the good people on these message boards want to talk respectfully about lacrosse. They have been tolerating maggots like you for too long that create and feed on controversy. Contribute or get lost.
everyone knows? I troll and get watched and edited like a child? Nice lie Hop. I think I got edited by Larry a long time ago, but never by you you lier. Watch all you want, but if I am not mistaken it was you trying to create controversy just the other day. Calling me a troll and maggot because you don't like my opinion is juvenile on your part don't you think, but then again so is lying about someone to make yourself look better.


Your anonymous. Who cares. Don't be a whiner. Move on and stop crying.

Duuuuuuude - it was sarcastic - I would love to have my kids up at the field with a shovel in there hands and I don't have a problem with a coach kicking my kid in the a$$ if he deserves it, it was meant as a sarcastic statement on society and how the PC police have changed everything and not for the better......and I was really just trying to suck up to The Hop

Seems like St Anthony's only has 11 regular season games on the schedule, which is a bit light compared to most teams with roughly 13-16 regular season games. What gives with so many high quality teams in their own back yard.

don't go by what's on the school website just yet. It also shows no games until March 31. There are about 5 empty slots. I have to believe that they are still working out some of the scheduling. Using your approach then the JV team is playing no games this year and the freshman team is going back in time and playing in 2014

Laxpower also has the same schedule as the St A's website. Not sure why they don't have their act together and what the procrastination with the schedule is all about - it's not like the season just mysteriously appeared without warning and caught them by surprise. Why leave the scheduling to the last minute? Will be impossible for other schools to fit them in their schedules that have already been baked for at least a month or two. And it's not like they have to look far for good games - There are a dozen worthy opponents within a 20 mile radius - c'mon St A's - get it together already!

nice first week of lax and there you go.

I am quite sure many schools do not have their full schedule up it is a shame St A's doesn't. but look int a few other teams and you will see holes too. So coaches on lax power aren't even correct.

Dropping some knowledge........

Since 2010, there are only 31 teams that have finished ranked nationally in the top 150(Laxpower)in each of the past 5 years... a true mark of consistency.

5 teams come from CT,
1 team each from NJ and PA.
2 teams from Upstate NY.
4 teams come from MD.

Of those 31 teams, 7 come from Long Island-
(2 Catholic's, 1 Nassau and 4 Suffolk).

Chaminade
Garden City
St Anthony's
Ward Melville
Smithtown West
Comsewogue
Shoreham-Wading River

Only 1 team in the Nation has a better 5 year national average ranking than Chaminade.... and that team is.... Haverford.

If that list of teams ranked in the top 150 is expanded to teams ranked in 4 out of the past 5 years (still a mark of consistency) the list doubles to 65 teams nationally.

From LI, that would bring Massapequa and West Islip back into the discussion.

Notable team not making the cut: Manhassett, Northport, Smithtown East, Syosett, CSH.

My question... What teams will become the next consistent models of excellence over the next 5 years?

will the catholics fall off the list?

past performance may not be an indicator of current results....

and current results may not be in line with historical performance,

but...

I'd make the bet that Coaches that have delivered regularly superior results and schools with consistent coaching and supportive programs will have a better chance of achievement longer term (even if there is a "trip up year").

Great example of this is West Islip... very likely to remain a strong program with coach Craig.

The head coach should have retired already. They lost all of there good assistant coaches over the last few years and have a head assistant now that was the sole reason 11 players including 5 starters quit the team last year. This guy should not have been able to keep his job this year.

As a Daler I think the program is in terrible shape because of the way it's being run. But with that said they as always have talent including one of the top goalies on the island who is only a junior.

First HS kids are old enough to make there own decision whether or not to play. Second HS kids should not be forced to be abused by "coaches" that should not be around student athletes.

Besides the head coach being way to old a big issue with the dalers is that there is zero communication between the JV and Varsity coaches. Last year the Varsity moved a player up during the middle of the season and this player wasn't even a starter on the JV and didn't make an impact on any games. He also didn't see the field on Varsity either. The Varsity coaches don't ask the opinion of the JV coaches that work with the players everyday. The JV coaches call out names for attendance of players that got called up because they don't even get a courtesy notification.

Almost everyone in Farmingdale would disagree and say that the Varsity coach should be forced to retire as he did 20 years ago from teaching. My son shouldn't be playing for the same coach that I played for in the 90's when that coach was old back then.

your son shouldn't be playing for same coach you played for? I'm sure that you are aware that several school districts , at least one very very prominent football and lacrosse programs have coaches who have coached for many years.football coach been there for over 40 yrs and is so old his team won LIC 2 yrs ago. lax coach has a stellar reputation and played there ... its a thrill to have your son play for your old coach. its a rare privilege and a testament to consistent program.

an agreement or agreement can be made that some coaches should still coach as long as they can and some others should hang up the whistle no matter how long they've coached.

I would also say a record is not always an indication. Some take weak teams further than expected some do not take teams as far as they should. (regardless of longevity)

Why not List the coaches years of service and record and playoff appearances.

Personally, I will say the coach shouldn't be someone the players grandfather went to college with.

The Farmingdale coach has been the head coach there since the 60's and Farmingdale has always been one of the strongest programs in Nassau yet he has won only 1 state title in 2011 and that was with the assistants that have since left doing all of the actual coaching. He's just a figure head at this point which is bad because of the lack of ability of the head assistants.

You people are blaming a man who has coached a very successful program for over 40 years. Probobly longer than most of you pussies are alive. He's coached plenty of players that have gone on to play at the highest levels. Don't blame the coach if the talent isn't there right now. Let's move onto another topic . This sounds like a few angry Daler parents who's kid don't get asked to play Varsity. Maybe he's not as good as you think.

No dalers that went on to play at college received any help from the head coach. There has always until 2012 been great assistants that help the players and the club coaches in recent years too.


Any I assume you were one of those ? No. I went to a D1 school and he helped a lot. Sorry your kid isn't skilled enough to get moved up. Don't take it out on the coach

My son is on Varsity and nobody said anything about anyone not getting moved up. These days the head coach isn't involved in those choices anyway! Just stating the overwhelming feelings within the town.


Syosset beat chaminade 9-2 today!!!!!


Think the end score was syosset 7 - Chaminade 1
Chaminade definitely only had one goal
Syosset won against Don Bosco also about 12-2
But then lost to lynbrook by 1
Good day of lacrosse despite the weather

He was highly criticized for it initially, he said at first it was a Rough Ride, but overall he was glad he did it

I would like to re-classify your post as condescending - we all got the historical reference, it just was funny enough to comment on - and I always assumed TR was a defensemen as it is well know that he talked softly but carried a big stick......that is an historical reference to TR's travels in West Africa and his quoting of the proverb.

it took about 4 minutes not 4 days, some of us don't go to this site every day and i would not have ended on a preposition if I had any idea what that means or that I did it, I went to public school and we didn't learn good

They added the following:

4-Apr at Haverford School (2-0)
18-Apr Niskayuna (0-0)
27-Apr at Don Bosco Prep (0-0)

11-Apr Delbarton (0-0)
15-Apr at Chaminade (0-0)
25-Apr Wilton (0-0)
7-May Chaminade (0-0)
14-May Darien (0-0)
16-May New Canaan (0-0)

GC probably needs to get some sophs up on varsity and playing in order to get better in a hurry.

some really good early commits... but one d pole left to go to St. Ants (was he recruited?)

Chaminade has about 60% more boys than any other high school on Long Island, it's actually kind of lame that they're not better

Exactly, not on schedules bc it was a scrimmage but definitely counts to anyone who thinks chaminade is the team to beat considering it was like chaminade wasn't even in the game . Syosset took their starters out early on and let everyone play (Syosset is deep with strong 2nd, 3rd lines that kept Chaminade tied up )bc it was so uncompetitive , can you imagine the score if Syosset didn't let up and went all out on this scrimmage that you say doesn't count ? Kind of goes to show that these pre-season rankings mean nothing . Can't make predictions until teams hit the fields and actually show what they're made of .
Posted By: Anonymous Re: 2015 Spring Boys Varsity Lacrosse - 03/18/15 03:17 PM
"scrimmage" is a misnomer… parents, players and coaches all know the score. or at least who had more goals, thus who "won" at the end. Playing all the kids just shows how deep the teams are. If Syosset played all of their players and still beat Chaminade's bench, then Syosset, at all levels was better on that day. Time will tell.

don't you mean that Brentwood should have the best team on Long Island because they actually have the most boys.

right, and using that logic...

Brooklyn Tech should be the best in the country because they are the biggest and have the most boys.

right, and we're sure that the 3-4 D1 Syosset commits that are some of their best players didn't play either trying to rest their preseason injuries before their first scheduled games this week. Goes both ways but same outcome ... Really bad excuse

No dog in this fight. However, Syosset has been practicing, I mean training, 3 days a week for months. Let's see what happens come may.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: 2015 Spring Boys Varsity Lacrosse - 03/18/15 06:07 PM
I was watching the scrimmage from start to finish. My kid was on another team there. I was on Chaminades sideline and it seemed to me their coach was playing kids that are not their starters from the start of the game trying to sort out players. The basketball star did not play and they were missing a few others that just finished hockey season. I asked a player how long have they been practicing and he said that it was the first week outside full filed as a team so that scrimmage to me meant nothing. Syosset was good but you could tell they were further along than anyone else at the 4 way scrimmage. Must say though not a fan of how the Syosset kids were acting on the sidelines. Coach needs to control them

Terp would be a 9th grader and would probably be on the Freshman team not Varsity as per their policy not because of injury. Chaminade has a few Extreme players committed but I do not think any of their terps are committed yet. The Chaminade 2018 class is going to be truly outstanding

If you a bragging about them beating GC you should be worried. GC is down, way down this year and years to come. Their attack is a mess and scored 4 of the 7 goals against syossets defense. Combined they weigh 200 lbs. One kid has blinders and just wants to score and the other 2 if hit will quit but draw penalties because the refs feel bad for them. Syosset needs to play a real schedule. GC is in for a long year.

i looked at the same report you obviously referenced. There are a bunch of city schools that are bigger, but of the schools that actually play serious lacrosse, Chaminade is substantially bigger and recruits kids to the school...don't think Brentwood has that luxury or the reputation for investing in their lacrosse program. The only other schools that have strong lax programs on that list and have anywhere close to the number of boys that Chaminade has is Sachem. Did you say any others genius?

Never referenced a report...

Chaminade does not recruit. Academics are first at Chaminade. Do well on the test and the student is accepted.

Responded to a false statement that Chaminade has 60% more boys than any other LI HS... fact checked and debunked.

There is the fact that Chaminade, over the past 5 years, has the second best average national ranking in the country. Only Haverford can claim better.


So, you who thinks Chaminade is lame because they are not better apparently can only turn to disparaging remarks rather than appreciating team excellence and consistency. You also obviously have a strong disdain for the facts.

St Anthony's is a sports machine, Chaminade is an academic machine. Don't fool yourself given the 2 choices you would be crazy not to send your son to Chaminade. They take care of their own especially with internships and employment opportunities after college

Looks like GC in another "rebuild year". Roster includes some young (small) talent...(2017&2018) ..perhaps senior d1 commits could be playing larger role.....

You would think so but they don't respect the seniors to the extent that they consider their last year as an earned opportunity. Hopefully they give them a chance to enjoy some meaningfull time especially since they Arent in national top ranking this year

Chaminade is about education first and age appropriate development in the classroom and on the field. What you don't realize is Chaminades kids and parents #1 goal is not to coach summer lacrosse after college like most travel parents want for their kids!

My question was not intended to put down private schools or somehow get into bashing summer lacrosse coaches, I was simply asking why even in an academic first institution you would limit someone's athletic development. If they are physically better and more skilled than a junior or senior why would they not be allowed to play. I read and understand academics first, but athletics is part of the package of being a well rounded, adjusted college ready young adult upon graduation. What is age appropriate, one year, two years, how do we determine that exactly? If it is one year, why can't a sophomore play with a junior? How can a junior possibly compete with a senior? What message is being sent to the junior or senior that is first string even though there might be better players on the JV.

I hear your arguement. It was well put. However, riddle me this one Batman....

If we are going with your theory, why is it that this institution would allow a student who already was accepted as a Class of 2019 grad to reapply as a Class of 2018 student?

Please speak to the question.

Why is it OK for you to speak disparagingly about travel parents?

No one had an ill thing to say about you, your son, his school, etc. Your son is a travel player. That makes you a travel parent.

Because you chose to send your son to Chaminade, does not give you the right to put down others choices.

It most certainly does not give you the right to speak for what "travel" parents want, need, expect, etc.

Shame on you for thinking/writing about what travel parents want more for their sons.

Please speak for your son and what you want for your son.

Don't dignify the prior poster's comment. Chaminade parents are generally insecure so they need to pump up the institution to justify why they send their sons there. I can't figure it out, a catholic high school and they act like their kids go to a high school Harvard equivalent. Most, if not all, Chaminade lacrosse players are on travel teams and these catholic school families from Chaminade and St. A's take lax as seriously as any other people on LI. More often than not, you see these Chaminade posts touting their superiority but that's a clear sign the parents are insecure and are lacking something else in their lives to be proud of.

Why is the concept of waiting your turn so hard to grasp? Every boy going to Chaminade is fully aware of the policy, and still they go.

They might have a better stick but the physical and mental development isn't there (unless your the kid thats cheating by doing 8th grade over, personally, Cham is lowering it's standards by allowing that kid enrollment). Very rarely does a underclassmen actually lead there kid to a championship, usually they are just another number on the field, and a reason for mommy and daddy to brag. Unless a team is in desperate need for players because they don't have enough kids to field a team, 7th, 8th,and 9th, graders should never be on a varsity squad, and only the truly exceptional 10th graders should be allowed, if there are enough upperclassmen available. Cham is doing the right thing, if you don't like the right thing stay in your public and cry to your coach, you'll get what you want

Chaminade has about 60% more boys than any other high school on Long Island, it's actually kind of lame that they're not better



don't you mean that Brentwood should have the best team on Long Island because they actually have the most boys.

right, and using that logic...

Brooklyn Tech should be the best in the country because they are the biggest and have the most boys.


If not, what do you mean?



i looked at the same report you obviously referenced.

1. Chaminade does recruit to say they don't is just not true.

2. The school has 1,700 boys, that's equivalent to Brentwood and if that's who you want to compare yourself to then that's lame too. Just shut up and let Chaminade stand on its own accomplishments, no need to come websites and constantly have to tell everyone how great the school is. Do you see any other high school patting itself on the back as much as Chaminade?

OMG, totally missed the point again, I don't have a dog in the fight, don't have an agenda, don't have a clue why 7th, 8th graders and holdbacks would be entered into the conversation. It was a simple question, if you do have that rare 9th or 10th grader who can step in and play right away(they are physically and mentally ready to play) why should they be limited because of their age or grade. If it is something the school has always done, I guess that will have to be reason enough, since no one wants to explain why it is that way. Just because someone asks a question that differs from your point of view, that doesn't make them wrong.

My kids go to public schools and i love what Chaminade does, everybody knows the policy going in and I think it shows that Chaminade is not all about championships. By having the freshman play together they are bonding as a team since they all came from different towns and different club team same as the 10th graders - if they did move up the younger kids it might help them win more but at the expense of an older kids playing time. I feel Chaminade is a total four year experience not a one season experience. It was not the route my kids wanted to take but a great option for those that do. And again everybody knows the deal when they sign up

If they are physically and mentally ready to play at the Varsity level as a freshman, they would be physically and mentally ready to play with freshmen and sophomores on the JV, I think that goes without saying, but thank you Mr. Obvious.
Don't need to call the A.D., just figured with the wealth of knowledge and expertise on this site, someone would answer other than "they have always done it that way"

If telling a kid we want you to take and entrance exam and do well enough to be accepted and then do 3 hours of homework every night and you may or may not make the team is considered recruiting then yes they recruit.

Most of the people complaining are those whos kids took the exam and did not get in and when mommy and daddy called to complain and tried to get them accepted and were told get lost by the Brothers who can care less about winning any game. BUT THEY KEPT IT ALL A SECRET from anyone else in their town just in case they didn't get in. Then they run around bashing.

Let me define flufff. North shore, friends, Hewlett, Roslyn, plainedge, southside, bethpage. If these are not 10 goal wins then the RIP set lax. Regardless of the fact that these are required matches in the weak Nassau B conference, that's 7 automatic wins out of 15 games on the schedule. That's fluff. The rest of the match ups are high quality but that's only half the schedule.

Overall the curriculum is weak at Chaminade. They create a rigorous schedule but its not challenging at all and does in no way prepare you for the rigorous college curriculum you face at some the elite schools. Many students who take AP in public schools will actually be using the same text books as they do in college. There are plenty of schools on LI that offer a much more difficult and advanced education experience. Jericho, Manhasset, Wheatly, Syosset, and Great Neck South, and CSH just to name a few. Look at graduating class and the numbers that go to Ivy and Elite institutions. Remember they are working with the pool of students that is dealt them based on the boundaries of their borders. Unlike the Catholics like Chaminade that have the luxury of having students from all over attend. Chaminade isn't for everyone and either are publics. To stand on a podium and try and preach how elite your school just exposes and allows for people to use facts and data to back up what they are saying.

Anyone who believes that their academics is better is a parent of a student who goes there. As a former student of St A I can assure you that they are more concerned with the sports program. There's nothing wrong with that. You just need to be properly informed before you attend

I completely disagree with your "There's nothing wrong with that" conclusion. It's supposed to be an academic instituion first and foremost, not a sports academy ala IMG. If what you say is true about the priority of sports over academics, then there is everything wrong about that.

There are no other schools - everything else is "noise" if your kid goes to St. A's or Chaminade.

What else would an average man say. It's not a matter of if you go to college, it's where you go to college. Can't say that about half the public schools on the island. Ours is vamping up its vocational courses for that reason alone. Nothing wrong with either but I beg to differ on the average remark. Most of them are above average academically.

Quite honestly, most Catholic schools are weak academically. Inflated GPAs with weak SATs show that. Give lip service to academics, but put money behind sports.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: 2015 Spring Boys Varsity Lacrosse - 03/21/15 10:20 AM
A public school guy, but Chaminade is a great school. For anyone to say their academics is weak is jealous or just doesn't know what they are talking about. Every boy and I mean every boy that I know that went to Chaminade was a great kid. Not to say that there are not bad apples that went through there, but all the kids that I know personally were great kids.

I know less kids that went to St. Anthony's (not all of them were on the same level as the kids I know that went to Chaminade) but for what it is worth I had a cousin that transfered from Huntingon to St. A's than back to Huntington. She told me there was the same problems at St. As that there was at Huntington and her classes at Huntington were harder and more rigorous.

I think we are lucky on Long Island that most of our public schools have the offerings of a great education. It is really you get what you put into it.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: 2015 Spring Boys Varsity Lacrosse - 03/21/15 03:06 PM
No one is saying anything about the quality of the young men. Its the quality of the education that is lacking. No jealousy here. My son is on the track to attend an Ivy on academics alone and yes from a public school. As for not knowing what I am talking about, I can actually give you facts and data to back what I am saying.

Its not about trying to defend the decision of sending my child to an institution that has inferior academics like many parents of Chaminade students do. Its about making those who are constantly preaching how good their school is without facts understand that the school their child attends is not infallible and Ivory towers do come tumbling down.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: 2015 Spring Boys Varsity Lacrosse - 03/21/15 03:55 PM
With staggeringly low acceptance rates at the Ivys, I don't think anyone can say they are on track to go to an Ivy. Plenty of straight A, perfect SATs get rejected.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: 2015 Spring Boys Varsity Lacrosse - 03/21/15 04:03 PM
Actually someone can say they are on track if they have sat in front of admissions director and an academic adviser and taken their PSAT as a freshman to create an AI. Happens a lot and those who are in the process can attest to it.

To clarify my earlier comment, my kid is in the process with a few Ivys and has had the AI conversation. So I'm familiar with the athlete/academic connection at those schools. But I wouldn't say my kid is on track "on academics alone" when I know that athletics is giving them an edge. When I read the original comment l took it to mean "my kid can get into Ivys without any athletic edge" and my point was with admit rates hovering near 10% for traditional applicants - that's not a realistic statement.

Guess you never have been involved in the process. As for my son's academics they are higher than a 4.0 and include many honors classes. Academically he is on track to attend an Ivy or even a NESCAC. What is so difficult about that. We have many friends who's children have attended elite schools and we have modeled the path my son is on after their children's. It helps he is an excellent lacrosse player so the process has been accelerated.

This post occurred at about the same time as your explanation to first hand knowledge of the process. I should have been clearer on the fact that lacrosse is in the mix regarding his admissions process.

That's my exact point. I am deep in the process at similar schools so I know very well what you are talking about. But I would never boast that my child is "on track for academics alone" when I know they are getting better treatment because of their athletics. I know too many non-recruits with great academic stats who get denied. IMO to not acknowledge the advantage an athlete with good grades has is a disservice to those kids.

As usual the past couple of years, Set will beat the Roslyns and Hewlets easily but will struggle to win any games against more disciplined and athletic teams. They have enough fluff in the schedule to finish above 500 but with none or very few high quality wins.


Spot on. Set loses to boys Latin. Can't win the quality games. Move Tyler Dunne back to lefty attack where he'll score 4 or 5 goals a game. He's being wasted at middle.

Is it me? Or are these MIAA teams highly over-rated? These private schools pull/recruit the best players from all over the DMV area. Are loaded with re-class and hold backs and they can barely beat or lose to small LI public schools? How is that even possible? Garden City, a school with about 140 boys a grade, pulling from a small defined geographic area,beats St. Pauls. Sachem destroys Archbishop Spalding and Manhassett a school with about a 100 boys per grade,loses by two to BL? No disrespect to GC or Set, but they both lost recently to other LI publics. I think a little more attention should be paid to the LI publics. As a whole, this is where the best Lacrosse in the nation is being played.

The people who watch the sport for a living and make the polls don't back your assertions. The great majority of ranked high schools nationally are private schools. If Set had played BL last year, the score would have been 20-2 BL. Set was "lucky" to have missed that freight train by scheduling them this year after a ton of D1 committs had already graduated including Shack Stanwick - you may have heard of him. This year BL is way down and still managed a win against a Set team that should be better than last year. Nice try.

Manhasset has a decent team, but certainly not the best the LI publics have to offer. WM,Syosset, SE and a few others would easily beat BL this year, the WM of two years ago would have been evenly matched with last year's BL. Easy there before you count LI publics out!

nobody watches boys high school lacrosse for a living, they are hacks trying to make a name for themselves by tweeting BS about the schools they know or have heard of and to discount this years results because in your opinion last year would have been a blow out is silly, the point the original poster was making is still valid, how can these schools with such large areas to pull from always be ranked so highly and then look so bad when up against public schools.

Why do you think St Pauls and Boys Latin draw from a huge geographic region? They are both day schools like Chaminade or St. Anthony's. At the very most, probably a 15-20 mile radius. I could see your point for some of the prep boarding schools where they do draw nationally but not the day schools. I think you are exaggerating their reach because you are unfamiliar with the differences between boarding schools and private day schools.

Sachem destroys Archbishop Spalding and Manhassett a school with about a 100 boys per grade,loses by two to BL? No disrespect to GC or Set, but they both lost recently to other LI publics. I think a little more attention should be paid to the LI publics. As a whole, this is where the best Lacrosse in the nation is being played.


The people who watch the sport for a living and make the polls don't back your assertions. The great majority of ranked high schools nationally are private schools. If Set had played BL last year, the score would have been 20-2 BL. Set was "lucky" to have missed that freight train by scheduling them this year after a ton of D1 committs had already graduated including Shack Stanwick - you may have heard of him. This year BL is way down and still managed a win against a Set team that should be better than last year. Nice try.


nobody watches boys high school lacrosse for a living, they are hacks trying to make a name for themselves by tweeting BS about the schools they know or have heard of and to discount this years results because in your opinion last year would have been a blow out is silly, the point the original poster was making is still valid, how can these schools with such large areas to pull from always be ranked so highly and then look so bad when up against public schools. Just because Ty and Casey say something does not make it a fact.


Why do you think St Pauls and Boys Latin draw from a huge geographic region? They are both day schools like Chaminade or St. Anthony's. At the very most, probably a 15-20 mile radius. I could see your point for some of the prep boarding schools where they do draw nationally but not the day schools. I think you are exaggerating their reach because you are unfamiliar with the differences between boarding schools and private day schools.


thank you for the definition on a day school, the condescending explanation was appreciated. public schools can draw from kids within their boarders not whomever wants to go there.

If you knew anything about private schools, you would know that not everybody who wants to go, can go. There are admissions tests, interviews, tuition etc. It's not just a grab bag. Plus, in the Baltimore area (MIAA) there are about a dozen great private schools within a 25 mile radius competing for the same talent and in the process diluting the talent pool for any individual school. So, think about a dozen Chaminades in Nassau and Western Suffolk competing for the talent. Point being that the MIAA privates don't have it so easy in terms of assembling talent - they are just good at developing and coaching the talent that they get and 99 times out of 100 will beat any NY public despite their challenges of putting teams together. You can say what you want about the NY publics but they can't match up with the upper echelon of the MIAA. The only league that can possibly compare is the NE West 1 - another private league with Deerfield, Brunswick, Avon and Salisbury. The NY publics couldn't compete with those schools either - trust me on that.

As usual the past couple of years, Set will beat the Roslyns and Hewlets easily but will struggle to win any games against more disciplined and athletic teams. They have enough fluff in the schedule to finish above 500 but with none or very few high quality wins.


Spot on. Set loses to boys Latin. Can't win the quality games. Move Tyler Dunne back to lefty attack where he'll score 4 or 5 goals a game. He's being wasted at middle.


sad but true, until Set makes fundamental changes in the program they will wrestle with mediocrity. The dream of coaching your son and his classmates will become a nightmare.

Thank you again for your clarity - 99 times out of 100 except LI went 2 out of 3 yesterday - and yes I can imagine a dozen Chaminade's in Nassau especially if there were no competitive public school leagues in Nassau County.

If Baltimore had great public schools and very high property taxes I am sure that the public schools down there would be a more viable options but it is what it is, low property taxes private school options and OK lacrosse.

Who is it that watches HS lax for a living exactly? Relax, your MIAA school nearly got beat by a very small public school, that recently was beaten by an even smaller public school. Pound for pound the MIAA isn't even close, your "power house private school" should be beating these little public schools by 20, year in and year out. Please.

Spalding losing to any decent team is to be expected, they are a B school playing in the A conference because 15 years ago they had two exceptional offensive players and a decent basketball team and wanted to expand facilities. They should not be in this discussion. Most of the MIAA schools are very small also, would be classed 1A or 2A if they were public schools. It sounds like there were two good early season games. New [lacrosse] won a close one, Maryland won a close one. Why can't that be enough?

GC with a nice win. Looks like the young guys can play. Don't count them just yet. Others should take notice. The younger players belong . Think twice before you make predictions after 1 game.

you would be spending the money somewhere if not on lacrosse - a kid that decided to not go to sleep away camp to stay home and play travel lacrosse saves $10,000 - $15,000 a year so the net savings is $6,500 - $11,500 over 10 years that is some real money. My family and I have loved the summer lacrosse circuit and would do it again over a couple of trips to Disney, Europe or cruises that would all have cost us the same as a year of travel. I doubt anybody has said " we are not going to play travel lacrosse" and then put that money in the college fund.

Most people chasing the dream are doing it for admissions to a college that they might not be able to get into without the support of the lacrosse coach and probably could not have gotten into even if all the money was spent on tutors. I would bet that the additional earnings over the lifetime of the kid that gets into an Ivy league over a very good school would more then make up for the cost spent on summer travel if it was lacrosse that put them over the top to be admitted. Any parent that would not do anything (including reclassifying) to help their kid get into a better school is crazy. IMHO

confused by the first post, how do you change up your attack if you have not played a game yet? and confused by the second post as well, NP parents don't seem to be any worse then the rest of us

I'll explain the second post.
It's not cool to say the attack basically sucked and will be replaced. Those kids will catch wind and as I said 1000 times this forum is not about singling out individuals. I wanted the poster to see how that type of post can be hurtful. Probably why you felt the need to defend the NP parents because it's disparaging.

Because someone on here will say he sucks and is over rated and the fight begins.
If you would review this thread you will see BOTC moderators do our best to prevent players being involved in the childish back and forth that is usually between adults.

Also, parents are most times to blame for posting about their kids when they do good only to get that kid hammered by posters who thrive on negativity like vultures. So don't post about your own kid if you care for him.

Because someone on here will say he sucks and is over rated and the fight begins.
If you would review this thread you will see BOTC moderators do our best to prevent players being involved in the childish back and forth that is usually between adults.

Do not single out a player period.


Why not allow posts that praise a worthy player by name and edit/delete the negative bashing that follows?

Huge game today one school is playing another and their are a number of key match ups - the first team has a player at an important position that has not played against another team with a player as good as him and it should be interesting to see how he does. The other school has more then a few players in grades not normally associated with varsity player it will be interesting to see how they do (I wonder how old they are and if they really should be in that grade) and last but not least is the two players at that really important position with them both going to a college next year it should be a great afternoon of lacrosse. hope the kids can handle playing in this heat

Manhasset played Boys Latin last weekend at One Love Springfest at St. Paul's in Maryland. GC also played against St. Paul's. The GC box score is on MSG Varsity and Newsday. The Manhasset game is not listed in their schedule on MSG or Newsday and no box score.

Never mentioned the player or the position so I am not sure why you refuse to allow a post about the game and how can you discuss a game without the fact that a difference maker for one of the teams did not play? It would be like not allowing us to say the weather was a factor because you don't want to single out mother nature

I am not from Massapequa, but will question those who are on here. Are you questioning the probability that Massapequa cant become a dynasty? Which year in the next few years are they soft, where do you see a down trotted year where they may not continue to rise for the next few years.

I also know this is a Varsity thread, I also know your Varsity program is only as good as those that are coming down the pipe. That pipeline looks god for Massapequa

It has become impossible to discuss any game, boys or girls. I understand not using players names outright, I see the point in not using players numbers or initials, but not being able to discuss positions they play makes it imposable. I read that post about N-port before the raping of it and there was nothing wrong with what the poster said. This site has become ridicules

Well 99 out of 100 nearly happened 3 times this weekend... Too funny.


And most of those private school teams are stacked with 19 year olds.


Looks Port Washington, another LI public gave Calvert Hall all they could handle in a close one. I guess LI publics can and do compete well with the Mighty MIAA.

There were four games I'm aware of between LI publics and MIAA teams. 2 wins and 2 loses for each. Usually when a team loses it means that the team that won "beat" the other team. With that said, these games shouldn't even be close. MIAA schools recruit players, and are loaded with re-class, holdbacks and 19 year olds. (LI publics have nearly zero 19 year olds) LI publics have to assemble a team from the kids that live in a small geographic area. In many cases a few square miles. MIAA teams should be winning these games by 10 plus goals. Perhaps the MIAA is just a tad bit overrated...

Don't get confused by scores, logic or facts MIAA is better then everybody else, not because they can draw from a larger area, not because their kids are a year older it is because they are better then everybody else, always have been always will be......just ask them

Looks Port Washington, another LI public gave Calvert Hall all they could handle in a close one. I guess LI publics can and do compete well with the Mighty MIAA.


Watched Port in several winter league games and came away extremely impressed with their speed and transitions. They will be a force to be reckoned with (from a GC guy)

Whitman beats Pat Med 8-2- not impressive.

Goalie with 21 saves 2 goals against, thats impressive.

This should surprise anyone. LI dominates the college scene. About 15% of all D1 mens lacrosse players are from LI. The only thing that I saw as a college player that made the Balti teams better was superior coaching and long standing lacrosse traditions. Long Island has more kids and better athletes. Plus, Long Island kids are not afraid to take the body!! The club scene has helped to make our HS programs stronger.

lets talk about Whitman after they play East (Smithtown and Hills)

Their schedule is full of Jv caliber teams. 8 of the 13 games left should not be a challenge. (Your season comes down to Smtithown East / west, Hills East, WI, Northport not your fault sect 11's)

What's wrong with Smithtown West and their schedule?

They seem to be ducking some of the early heavyweights on their schedule(Bronxville & Garden City)...maybe they are not ready.

I know snow, cold, locusts, fire, etc. Some day they gotta play and show what they have.

Keep on playing the cupcakes - then claim to be the best.

not sure what you are talking about? they are not regular season lions or playoff lambs - they generally finish the playoffs about where you would expect them, two upset losses and one upset win in the recent past - the rest were about were you would expect them. in the last 10 years they average 12.4 wins and 5.6 losses, they play a pretty strong out of league schedule and the in league schedule is what it is. In the last 10 years they have won 4 county championships and were state runner ups once. By no means a dynasty but also not chumps. you are what your record says you are and they are on average a 12 win 5 loss team.

i am not a syosset fan but they are playing well and only have pequa to beat until the playoffs (which is a free for all)- their parents are probably a bit too excited but let them enjoy the moment - i really doubt u want to be undefeated heading into playoffs - imo suffolk has the the best teams but they tend to choke - i think the owls are legit and csh has no one to play until the state finals so who cares about C - we need a super league because outside of 1 or 2 league games and OOC games the season is a waste of time until the playoffs ...

What happened to HS sports. In my district you pay your coaches to play on a travel team during the summer and in return they play 9th graders in the last few minutes of a game over upper classman who have waited for their opportunity to play. Coaches of today want loyalty, but perhaps they should remember to return that loyalty to their players. What happened to waiting your turn or earning your spot. I have no problem with young players playing if they are truly better then the older ones, but let the kids play when the time is right!!

Regarding playing time...many dos and do nots regarding addressing this topic with coach. Any suggestions re asking why play time diminishing when being replaced by players with less results in game ( number of teammates questioned sidelined player about why not starting...are you injured, sick, miss practice?). Any suggestions for the player (other than work harder etc) ? best way to approach coach?

Amen brother. HS lax should to at least some degree be about creating memories, especially for the Seniors who have toiled away for years with very little reward. In a game already decided, would it kill a coach to get his bench riding seniors a couple of thrills for the years of commitment? Especially the Seniors who have been loyal to the coach's summer program when there are so many better club options that he could have played for. The 9th graders have plenty of time left and I have yet to see too many 9th graders who are better than seniors.

You speak the truth! It's those same parents that will say that there son got a full ride to a D1 school when in reality they are paying full freight for there kid to go there so it's a no risk option for the coach to put him on the roster.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: 2015 Spring Boys Varsity Lacrosse - 04/06/15 08:25 PM
Not the same. Being on a roster is something that occurs for real, paying or not. Cocktail party talk about kid being recruited is before that occurs. I may add that you hear that the coach says at end of prospect day " you did well" . What else would he/she say? "you looked horrendous, thanks for the $150-200"?
Posted By: Anonymous Re: 2015 Spring Boys Varsity Lacrosse - 04/06/15 08:39 PM
It is like anything else...when you are being recruited, you know it. We always treated prospect days as an opportunity to do so well that the coach then started recruiting you...
Posted By: Anonymous Re: 2015 Spring Boys Varsity Lacrosse - 04/07/15 12:48 PM
Prospect days can be a great resource but they are, by far, the easiest money-maker for college coaches. In my experience, if a coach has a real interest in a player, they will usually reach out to your club or high school coaches and ask if you can attend one of their prospect weekends. They typically have 10 or 15 players that they saw in the summer and wanted to get another look. Otherwise, unless you're an astounding player, it will be difficult to get noticed. Do not be lured in by the "Dear X, Congratulations on being selected to attend our Prospect Day" You are most likely 1 out of 300 in a group email. However, if you think your son had a decent showing, have your club coach call the college coach to get their evaluation and ask if they should follow up. If they tell him, they like you but want to see you play some more .... move on.

Yup
Overheard a conversation end of last summer between two dudes at a pizzeria and they were discussing the windfall of cash that the local university's prospect camp was generating for the HC of the schools Lax program. Curious as to who they were. I googled the schools Lax coaching staff and confirmed 1 was assistant to HC and other was his college buddy. Assistant was amazed that haul was in excess of 40k for the 1 or 2 day camp, less expenses!

This is very true, but the process isn't without merit for would-be recruits.

Only attend prospect days at schools of interest. It's an opportunity to get in front of the coaches at your target schools and it also lets them know you're interested. Perform well, get noticed and follow up with the coaches after the event. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

If anything, prospect days allow players to gain some control of the recruiting process, visit the campus, get to the know the coaches and learn a little about their system for the day. As for the coaches, they get to evaluate players on their turf and on their terms and divert some of revenue away from the tournaments and showcases.

It is so disappointing to see this year's league alignments in suffolk county varsity boys lacrosse. By splitting the A 's into 2 leagues it has watered down the play so much. I just left a game where the half time score was 19-2. This is not unusual for so many of the games this year. It is a disservice to the team winning and even more so for the losing team. No one gains from this experience. Last year each and every game was a challenge and required thoughtful play by the athletes and creative coaching by the staff. Not so much this year.

One of the issues is that GC the youth organization and parents(politics) and the HS coaches(politics) buy into the "committed" idea at 3rd & 4th grade. How many kids develop after age 9? Right! But somehow the GC system has already culled the herd and determined who'll be the 24 next great players 7 years later. They do not develop the majority of "un-chosen" players early on in the process, thus loosing many of the kids. Then when it comes to going to HS they will loose 4-6 of the "committed" players to other schools.

The talent pool is in GC deep but they only focus on the few way too early.

You are correct about Suffolk A this year. Seems as if there are about 5 competitive teams in each league. 3 games you don't know what you'll get and 3 wins/losses by 5 or so goals and about 5 games which will be dreaded blow outs.

One of the issues is that GC the youth organization and parents(politics) and the HS coaches(politics) buy into the "committed" idea at 3rd & 4th grade. How many kids develop after age 9? Right! But somehow the GC system has already culled the herd and determined who'll be the 24 next great players 7 years later. They do not develop the majority of "un-chosen" players early on in the process, thus loosing many of the kids. Then when it comes to going to HS they will loose 4-6 of the "committed" players to other schools.

The talent pool is in GC deep but they only focus on the few way too early.


Totally disagree. There are more than 300+ boys playing in the GC youth program between grades 3-6, 78 alone in the 6th grade. So how are we not developing the un-chosen players so early on? Please explain.

Yup
Overheard a conversation end of last summer between two dudes at a pizzeria and they were discussing the windfall of cash that the local university's prospect camp was generating for the HC of the schools Lax program. Curious as to who they were. I googled the schools Lax coaching staff and confirmed 1 was assistant to HC and other was his college buddy. Assistant was amazed that haul was in excess of 40k for the 1 or 2 day camp, less expenses!


my 2018 has gone to 5 prospect camps and his HS coach got calls within 24 hours from 3 of the 5 schools, We then set up visits and went back to meet with the coaches and tour the schools. He has not gone to the prospect days to any of the schools he has no interest in, it is all a matter of being realistic about your kids ability and picking the right schools, I think it is way way better then the camps and fall tournaments at least for my son. As far as them being money grabs I don't see that at all. 80 to 100 kids at $150 ea. is $1200 to $1500 gross - they have some expenses (Refs, pinnies, trainers and I am not sure if they are allowed to give money to the kids on the team that help out) so maybe at the end of the day the coaching staff nets $10,000 and in my opinion this is the best money you can spend on your sons recruiting just pick the right ones and don't go to everything.

prospect camps are better than tournaments if you are going to see a school your kid wants to attend. If you do get a call from the coach it is great. If you go to camps because of an invite you are wasting your time and money. Most coaches that want to see you at their camp will have already been communicating with you before his camp.

I'll answer by asking some questions...

How many kids get to play in 7th grade? Big drop off, yes?

Does that 6th grade A team play more games/ scrimmages, practice more (indoor & outdoor), and play better tournaments than the other 6th grade teams?

Do you just disagree about the kids developing or do you also disagree about the politics?

7th grade school team, 35-40 maybe, eliminated the combo team to allow another 35 to continue playing
5th and 6th grade A teams get far more attention than the B team or lower. Oddly enough, if enough kids play B instead of A, the directors purposefully neglect the B
Politics are rampant.

That may have been the case in the past, but that is definitely not the case with the 4th and 5th grade teams now and their directors.

Helped with that point, thanks.

If the GC powers concentrated on developing MOST or a majority of the kids at young ages (not just the select 20-24) It would likely help the overall strength of the HS program too.

There are many talented kids that don't get the attention in the early years. Some kids will develop on their own and crack the roster, but I think it would be far better (and advantageous) to try to equally manage 2 or 3 quality "A" teams in a deeply talented area such as GC and help kids keep playing longer.

It really would be advantageous because after 8th grade GC will loose 20% of the "A" kids won't go to GCHS anyway.

Parents and coaches don't want this because they want their kids to be the "elite" 10 year old... which in the end can help with a roster spot in HS. If the kid is part of the remaining 18 - 19 kids from the select team it is almost a lay up. That is why politics come into play.

The blow out issue is a problem in both Nassau and Suffolk. Everyone knows who the strong programs are and they should play in the same conference regardless of size of the school. 10+ goal margins are way to common and nobody benefits from those games.

What about the seniors who broke their back to play 4 years at school and get sent in for last few minutes while the parents of the freshmen head for the parking lot congratulating one another for all that they are. that's a total thrill .

That's not right, should be the other way around. Can't imagine freshman being better than uperclassman, expect maybe very rare instances. Maybe when it happens to them they will realize why it's not best practice.

Watched a game last week, the ball never went past the face off line. The conferences need to be realigned based on strength of programs. 18-0 is a waste of everyone's time.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: 2015 Spring Boys Varsity Lacrosse - 04/08/15 11:51 PM
I disagree - I believe that kids should develop by skill level - balance teams ends up having top few players getting all of the touches and not sharing the ball well and the weaker players never get any meaningful action and it will drive better players to leave which will in turn push more players out - the attrition rate for lacrosse is probably the same as all sports in all towns - in matter of fact rosters in GC are too large and should be closer to 18 per team - as for politics, go to most club team on LI and you will be in awe of the politics, recruiting and win at all cost attitude that take place for 3rd graders and up - GC is not perfect but it is better then most - Finally, I really doubt that the youth program has anything to do with boys deciding on Chaminade, if so that is pretty sad.

Look in Newsday at the scores from yesterday's games in both Nassau and Suffolk. Disgusting amount of blow outs. It's bad for both teams and it part of the reason so many teams bring up underclassman that never play in meaningful games. They know the schedule has more than half of it's games as 10+ goal difference games.

C'mon guys, GC has won two state championships in the last three seasons. How many towns can say that?? Most traditional programs all have rebuilding periods (WIslip, Manhasset, CSH, etc.). GC presently has a lot of talented underclassmen starting and obviously not all of them are quite ready for prime time. As in any sport, it's tough to win a superbowl every year.

If the goal is to win at the HS school level then the formula is simple enough, on a very good team 6-8 seniors will play, 4-6 Juniors, 1-3 Sophomores and maybe 1-2 Freshman and that is it. The youth organization need to identify those kids early (no later then 5th grade) and develop those kids. The b and c teams are just a waste of time and resources, youth sports is not about fun and participation it is about creating a feeder program for the high school to be champions.

Wow, by 5th grade? That's harsh! Some of the top performers on my son's team were not the best back then. In fact some hardly saw the field. Many of the "best" in 5th grade are now playing 2nd and 3rd line if at all.

" identify kids no later than fifth-grade", That is ridiculous. Some kids fourth fifth and sixth grade still like playing other sports. Maybe they haven't even picked up a lacrosse stick yet. and some of your young stars will burn out. Let the kids compete. There are numerous college studs making impact in Division I who are late bloomers and did not pick up a lacrosse stick until much later. Let the kids compete. Stop trying controlling things for your kids. Just let the kids play let them compete let them earn their spots as they go through high school. You might be surprised by how good they become and how much better off the high school team is

Yeah, why should kids play sports for fun. Let them go sit inside and play video games if all the want is to have fun with their friends. Doesn't everyone realize that the world revolves around me, I mean, my 9 yr old that I live through vicariously! /s

At 5th grader my son was not one of the "identified" kids. Today he is the only one the group going to a top D 1. Real grateful this j@ck@ss isn't in charge.

The b and c teams are just a waste of time and resources, youth sports is not about fun and participation it is about creating a feeder program for the high school to be champions.


THIS - is the biggest problem with youth sports in particular, but it doesn't stop there. Putting people into "buckets" just goes against the human spirit.

Their stellar youth program is not the reason for that success. Start with the fact that it is a lax town and many who played come back to raise their families there. Then add in that most have the resources to throw money at lax from day one via tournaments, the best equipment, camps, clinics, private coaches, participation on mulitple teams, etc. That is why they succeed. By the time these kids get to HS the parentshave spend thousands to provide the coaches with a top quality product. It sure isn't happening on the youth program alone. There you have rampant politics, arbitrary decisions galore. My son also got completely hosed in youth lacrosse in GC and now is doing well at a HS level.

The tool who said kids should be indentified in 5th grade must be one of those whose son is a super star now, but sees all the other boys catching up to his son and will pass him by real soon.

Paul Rabil started playing lax when he was 13... you are a fool and know absolutely nothing about the development of children, most specifically, boys.

They better beat Duxbury....they are a better team. They can win the "B" conference in Nassau, I think it is up in the air with maybe Lynbrook the favorite

There are shots a Goalie is suppose to stop there are some they will never stop. There are also six other players on that side of the field who should be playing defense. If you don't have the Balls to stand in front of a shot you have no right to comment on any Goalie.

Better yet address the "a little weaker" GC team. They are no where near last years team and will be on the down swing for the next few years. Nothing coming up through the ranks to brag about. Now the best player face off specialist is out as well. Coach has to play the kids he made promises to so they wouldn't think about going somewhere else to play so be prepared to be subpar for a while.

Winning their conference is no big deal. Watch out not only for Carey but there is Calhoun playing well on their schedule. Calhoun goalie could be if not is one of the best out there. And they are a young team that like to battle

Connetquot/WM game probably the worst officiating I have witnessd in 20 years of watching high school lacrosse. But even worse the behavior of parents on both sides....perhaps reason for bad officiating?? Neither set can lose or win with dignity.....embarrassing

A lot of officiating is bad. Throw the flag for a penalty. To many use the cop out of play on.

One official had the audacity to say a push can't happen when a player is going down for a ground ball. When in fact it a cross check could have been called. I've been to about 14 games this season. The boys have played but the refs in a 1/4 determined the out come.

If you can't get off the Island and win a state, a county is nice but nothing close to the hubris and bluster blowing out of SE that would make you think they were some kind of dynasty. Hardly that. Lets stay a little modest and humble until they fill a case with multiple pieces of State hardware (ala WM, WI, GC, Manhasset).

Stop living in the past! Every year is different. Great to see talent emerging from programs nobody noticed in the past. Face facts, GC, Manhasset, WI weak.

'Quot has Sachems and HHW
Nport has Sachems SE and WM

Northport has a home advantage for that stretch; Connetquot is mostly away. Not sure home field means much but i would say going deep into the season could be a factor.

After today, good test coming up for Smithtown West. If you assume today will be their 7th win of year vs deer park, the win loss records of their opponents in their 7 wins is 12-26 combined. They have HHE, Whitman and Smithtown East beginning Thurs. Their combined win loss records are 18-1.

Does anyone know what the playoff requirements are for Suffolk A Boys. Now that there are two leagues are the two leagues merged for the playoffs and the points system from Sect ix will determine a team's Seeding. The tentative brackets show 13 teams would make the playoffs

Someone else told me any team with 6 league wins gets in. I am aware of the old "Sachem" rule but that doesn't sound right in this day and age.

Looks like Suffolk B is a death match every single game. One team is struggling, but every other team is going toe to toe in every game. Should be very interesting to see who's left standing at the end. Word is, 8 wins in conference and your in the playoffs. These teams will either be battle tested or beaten up. Only time will tell.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: 2015 Spring Boys Varsity Lacrosse - 04/17/15 11:30 AM
this new Suffolk schedule really sucks...

Most powerful schools have had only one or two real games thus far and 5 that weren't good for anyone.

Worse, JV hasn't had any real games...

10 plus goals in first half mean starters are pulled and benches are cleared, no way to prepare for the SME, SMW, WM Masapequa, syosset...

Would much prefer to have a record of 4 and 4 against tough teams than undefeated or 1 loss at this stage.

Forget about national rankings, they are a load of crap. In suffolk at least, the objective is to win states. Can't push your team to play under pressure if every game is 13-2...

Unfortunately high school lacrosse is not very competitive. Every conference on Long Island has a few strong teams but that is about it. There needs to be a Long Island Power Conference. At the very least, teams should be able to schedule more non-league games.

Ah 13-2 (try 14 or 15 to 2) but I say why a power conference? Imagine if there was a power conference would you have put Connetiquot there. If they didn't make it into the power conference they would be undefeated and everyone would question their accomplishments.

Maybe try this on for size; each conference has 12 or so teams. 4 teams in each are very good 4 will give each other good games and 4 others will be the door mats.

Take 2 of those 4 door mats off the schedule and replace them with 2 non conference "challenge" games.


Since you mentioned Suffolk
Does Northport, Connetiquot (not a surprise to me), Ward Melville really need to play Brentwood or Longwood. No! That game doesn't help either team. But you and I both know you put those 3 teams into a power conference the bitching starts why can we have a safe game... blah blah blah

Honestly since you mentioned states how much do you know about the rest of the state? There are powder puff games in all of the NY sections 8, 1, 9, 2, 4, 5, 6,3, 7, 10. Brentwood/Longwood, East Islip/West Babylon or Baldwin/Valley Stream would be better than 500 clubs looking at a playoff spot.

Many of the public school sections (in and out of the state) are broken up in 1/3 just like Suffolk; the good, the bad, and the ugly.

You are very correct about section 8 having terrible games just like section 11. Section 8 A has Freeport, Hempstead, Valley Stream, Uniondale, and Plainview. That's 5 teams that lose by at least 10 to everyone else in the conference except each other.

Section 2 may have the best parity but still top heavy. You say prep for states, they way to prep for states is cross section games. Drop 2 league games and play out of conference.

I think many thought 'port would give a better game. Let's see if my latest prediction which throws Suffolk A into a tizzy comes through. Both Ward Melville at Northport win against league 2 foes.

Big game in Nassau 4/24... Strap them up boys. Playoffs are coming, this is the part of the season keep your bodies healthy and jump on your study's early in the last qtr. Leave it all on the field everyday.

Thanks. I've been talking about Northport a while now. Unfortunately I am not a fan of theirs because of one middie but think their poles are very good. Not enough to make up for their cheap [lacrosse] middie.

I also called the Carey season. Saw them last year tare apart a team I thought was good from west/put. Although not a fan.

Like 'Pequa not so much a Syosett fan. But that will be a good game. If Pequa rips up Syosett suffolk has a lot to worry about. But then again that is why tHey play

What are you talking about? You sound like they were 3-4 heading into the game. They were 7-1 with a 5 game (now 6) game win streak and have been destroying everybody.

You should work on your reading comprehension. I asked a simple question. I also stated that I had not been following NP. I knew they lost by 9 goals to a team from Nassau County early in the season. I did not make it sound like anything.
I questioned if they were missing players early in the season because the loss early on does not make sense to me due to the fact that they have been doing so well.

I suspect neither of those schools are happy with their records but I would not be surprised to see either one of them to make a nice run in the playoffs. Both have played pretty challenging schedules and Set beat a solid SW team and GC beat a strong St Paul's squad. I believe Set plays Lynbrook and GC plays Carey this week. Those games will provide a lot of color regarding Nassau B. It's nice to see this dogfight expand to some other schools.

GC will get on a bus and go 3 hours south to play St. Paul's. They could practically walk to Chaminade and play them instead. They clearly want no part of the Flyers.

How about you just be grateful for the players who leave GC to play for your precious Flyers. You wouldn't be nearly the program without them

Thanks to GC virtually forbidding kids from playing for club teams outside the select town team , the program is suffering a downtrade, maybe temporary, but we shall see. In the past kids played PAL on one of 4 equally talented teams. In addition, some kids played on summer tryout club teams. This approach provided a pretty good feeder system for the h.s. team, the results are in black and white. Now part of the deal seems to be an implicit deal that you must play for asst. coaches in summer or have no chance to play as a h.s. kid. freshmen get promoted to varsity etc.

Well said, Connetquot is a prime example of a product of a stronger youth league, leading them to the top of the standings. The traditional towns definitely have more competition.

I like 'Quot but the weather is a factor. Since Both have very good offenses. it is whomever handles the weather best. Some club talk in this one, but record wise and barn yard talk between league 1 & 2 it would have made it more interesting if it was HHHE. Leaving only 1 undefeated team in A for Suffolk. Who knows but still may wind up that way, I think Quot will find a way.

This is a real problem for GC, losing more kids than ever before to other high school options. Also creates a less cohesive environment as kids and families are pitched against one another as well as the program.

Without question, club exposure at a younger age has made some great players. These kids had access to a much higher level of coaching and the level of competition at a young age was much more intense. If you look at most (but not all) of the younger kids up on Varsity, they are highly skilled and talented from their club experiences. They may only be getting scrap time in some cases as freshmen, but you can tell they will be major players as sophs, Jrs and Srs.

No I don't live there. However, in most cases your are dealing with parents of very substantial means. If they feel the deck is being stacked against their children, they will reshuffle it. I'm sure the privates here on LI as well as the Boarding schools to the North will be happy to accommodate good students. Students who are also great Lacrosse players, that happen to come from families with deep pockets. Bye, bye, public school coach...

The private school route is no guarantee of more playing time and in fact is a much tougher route given that the private schools have talent from all over the county and the boarding schools are drawing great talent from all over the country. Go ahead, give it a try but you are risking a lot of after tax money for a much tougher road to the field. I've seen kids that are committed to high D1s ride the bench at private schools.

Virtually Forbidding???? Kids leave GC program all the time for club and end up playing for GCHS. I would think GC is no different then any club (91/Express) in that they want to keep their best players. My take is that GC is good enough to field a solid club team and give kids significant rolls where it is less mercenary and a win at all cost attitude. That said, playing for clubs teams does help some kids get exposure to playing with top notch players but in club a lot of really solid players end up sitting on the bench and or getting their playing time in non meaningful games - less so in GC IMO

All true. However you're leaving out one key element. The level of competition. Come grades 7,8,9 there is no way GC is fielding a team that can play against top level clubs here or elsewhere. No way you're competing against Crabs, Dukes, FCA, Laxachusettes, WCS, 3D, etc... That's where your theory loses steam. In order to be the best, you must play with and compete against the best. Not happening with your GC travel team. Not putting down your team or town. However, it is the very reason why the best kids from your town and other top Lax towns will play on the top travel teams.

Early in the season HHHW lost by 2 to SE and 1 to SW. I think it is a good win.

HHHE beat WW and SW handily, ask them who was tougher WB or SW. WI is in for a fight today with WB. Suffolk isn't as bad as people think.

I hope the 'Pequa Syo game lives up to the hype.

I believe that is entirely wrong.

Less mercenary, ha! The GC club teams forbid anyone that does not (or will not) be part of the HS future.

Recently, only a select group of emails were sent to the middle school kids inviting them to tryout fro the GC club teams. By excluding other kids from the invite, how does that seem like a fair tryout? Who calls those shots? Is it the A parents or the HS Coaches?

By the looks of it, some folks (with select players) are fed up with the BS and you can see on the rosters of fl$, 91, Express, Revolution, and TB etc.

Since the conversation brought up the future of LI HS Lax (7th - 9th).

If you have played on the travel circuit you know the reason why any LI town team cant win a travel summer game at the highest level. Whether it be (some of the bigger youth programs) Massapequa, Garden City, Syosset, CSH, Manhasset, Smithtowns, Ward Melville, SWR, ESM, Bay Shore, West Islip... the list goes on and on...

The biggest obstacle to towns playing travel is the reclass issue. I have been fortunate enough to have candid conversations, with Sweetlax, Laxachusetts, Crabs and Dukes parents. They reclassify to get their child the edge. To me each parent I spoke to had a very good player but on age they might just be okay. Not trying to make this a reclass thing of right or wrong. It is what it is and unless in a private school you will not see it so prevalent. So LI public schools don't stand much of a chance out there. a Diamond in the rough sure. but not like days of yesteryear.

HOWEVER THOSE THAT TRY CHALLENGING THEMSELVES WILL BE MUCH BETTER FOR DOING IT. YOU MAY NOT WIN, BUT IS IT ONLY ABOUT WINNING IN THE SUMMER?.

True. they exclude people very early on and there is no repercussion. Also, regarding their "elite" summer team(s) they cherry pick easiest tournaments beat up on easier opponents then put a two page spread in the local newspaper....sad and deluded .

You just said GC kids are leaving to go to other club teams - that is exactly my point - kids can play where they want - there are kids on GCHS that play within GC and some players for other outside clubs

I have to agree. If a child can develop and progress at a rate that is close enough to a top club program and do this in a town environment like GC for example, and do it at a fraction of the cost compared to an over priced, high pressure club environment, then why not?

Does it really matter? All this wheel spinning, cash burning, chasing the carrot .......for what?
12.9 equivalent scholarships spread across a roster of 45?
That's the reality of it!
Posted By: Anonymous Re: 2015 Spring Boys Varsity Lacrosse - 04/21/15 05:37 PM
I agree with that 100% that very strong town teams will rarely beat a top club but my point is not so much about winning but player development. Some of these elite teams have lots of great players but "win" with only a couple of even better players - so I agree w/ you that to be the best, you need to play the best but all too often clubs stockpile talent and only a few actually play against the best and contribute while the rest get to watch a great game... just my observation - if your HS has weak teams or plan on going to private/Catholic school then I believe you should go big club

They reclassify to get their child the edge. To me each parent I spoke to had a very good player but on age they might just be okay. Not trying to make this a reclass thing of right or wrong. It is what it is and unless in a private school you will not see it so prevalent. So LI public schools don't stand much of a chance out there. a Diamond in the rough sure. but not like days of yesteryear.

HOWEVER THOSE THAT TRY CHALLENGING THEMSELVES WILL BE MUCH BETTER FOR DOING IT. YOU MAY NOT WIN, BUT IS IT ONLY ABOUT WINNING IN THE SUMMER?.
They reclassify to get an edge......an edge on what?
12.9 equivalent scholarships, that's what!!!
Amazing!!!

Are you trying to say LI public school kids don't reclass?? Seriously?

If you have played on the travel circuit you know the reason why any LI town team cant win a travel summer game at the highest level.

Some of this isn't about the money but the prestige of the University their children get into. Many of these parents have the money, sure they would like not to spend it, but they see the opportunity that is ahead of their child after college.

Me, I put my child into travel so by the time he was HS ready he wouldn't leave the field. Call it selfish or egocentric but the results proved worthy and at first it was a conversation of where he would go to HS now the conversation shifted to the colleges interested in him.

In looking at Lax power it leads me to ask. Do the services that rank the school schedules SOS reevaluate the SOS through out the season. I hope so.

In week #1, history of LY has something to do with your rank. 4 weeks in or 10 games for some, they've played out a good portion of the season and you would think settled the level play to really see whose SOS is stronger.

WM and Chammy are 1 & 2 in NYS, they have single digit SOS with one loss. Meanwhile the teams that beat them (gave them that loss) are undefeated ('Pequa 'Quot ) sitting at 3 and 6.

Yorktown Kennedy and Fordham Prep should be below Lynbrook HHHE and even SE.

I don't get the rankings they use

they should be able to handle their schedule at the end. ill go backwards. they look good for senior day! have a tough road game at northport. Should win their next 3 but anything is possible. The Lindy game is the trap game depends on Lindy's F/O.

Now SE played EI, DP, Bport, copague and WB how many wins do those 5 have. Wow 8, same as you noted before. Next HHHE 7 of their opponents have 14 wins take away the 500 club and 6 teams with 10 wins.

Don't diminish Northport or Connetquot. Remember SE beat SW last year would you be that surprised if SW beat SE this year. HHHE and HHHW play each other as cross town rivals last game of season for East .

All good stuff!

And what kind of an experience will he have in college with the rest the student body that have 34–35 ACTs and 105 averages. Be careful for what you wish for. Is it what you want or what your kid wants. What if lacrosse doesn't work out. Is he in a place where he will be happy

Hardest part is getting into an Ivy, staying in is relatively easy (for an above average student) depending on your major. Trust me, been there done that.

All true. However you're leaving out one key element. The level of competition. Come grades 7,8,9 there is no way GC is fielding a team that can play against top level clubs here or elsewhere. No way you're competing against Crabs, Dukes, FCA, Laxachusettes, WCS, 3D, etc... That's where your theory loses steam. In order to be the best, you must play with and compete against the best. Not happening with your GC travel team. Not putting down your team or town. However, it is the very reason why the best kids from your town and other top Lax towns will play on the top travel teams.

You're uninformed. My son plays at a great D3 school. Got 30+ percent for academic and merit money. The Coach pushed his application through, had his acceptance in 1 DAY!!! Lax made the college acceptance process a breeze, and they found him plenty of money. Will save us nearly $75k. Oh yeah, money was locked in whether or not he ever stepped foot on the field. Not a bad deal, and the school is easily a better academic choice than many of the D1 schools. It's not all about D1... It's about education and leveraging your sport.

totally agree, this is why kids should only play tennis and golf because that is for the most part the only sports they will play once they graduate college and start working in the real world (for those that are a little to literal, that was sarcastic) the points that the two posts were mentioning were all about things that matter and things that they will take with them long after their playing careers are over

I agree 100%. I played D3 football it you are not playing for OSU, Oregon, Alabama, etc there is not that much of a difference in the experience. It is still high quality college athletics played at smaller venues.

It is even less a difference in College lacrosse. You can't tell me a kid playing at St. John's, Hofstra, Towson or even Stony Brook has a much better experience than a kid going to Salisbury, Cortland, Stevenson, Post, Aldephi, etc. Unless you are going to Duke, NC, Hopkins, Syracuse, Va, IVY etc. What is the difference? The elite kids go to elite schools. The rest?? Go for the education and college experience.

yes - that is what they tell you they "want" - they have slots that they have to fill and they do need 31+ ACT kids to offset the 27 ACT kids but I know that there are plenty of kids playing lacrosse and other sports at Ivy League schools with under 29 ACT's

When a player is “Recruited” they are in a separate category.
If you or your Club/HS coach are making outbound calls to college coaches or you are going to prospect days , showcase events or camps trying to get seen you are probably not in that category. (yet, you might someday be).
When the College Coach contacts the players Club/HS Coach and says they are very interested after watching the player compete that is a different story.
When The Head Coach makes contact and invites the player and parents to visit and makes an offer the (at an Ivy the offer is a roster spot and help with admissions) required curriculum, grades and test score will all be explained. They will all be different from what is told to the general population.

And then the real special kids go to one of the military academies. Less then 10percent acceptance rate. But you have to give them 5 years and a lot of kids don't want to do that.

Some parents would benefit by repeating the above post in their heads on a daily basis.
It's also important as a 1st time parent of a college bound student athlete to keep their expectations realistic. There are a lot of hucksters out there making some big money by marketing some path to the scholarship promise land to these starry-eyed 1st timers. Choose wisely.
The rest of us who are veterans of this process know differently.

Absolutely spot on. Great way to sum it up. Went thru the recruiting process with my son with realistic expectations. Leave your ego and dreams of full rides at the curb. If you could help your mediocre student child get into a top school, using lacrosse, while getting some money off tuition you have done well.

Is it officially a written rule now that if ANY kind of contact makes a player fall down a flag must be thrown? What has always been a 100% clean hit is called every time for a penalty today. I can't find anything about the rules being changed online. Anyone know?

yes there are some calls that are changed. defensless and if they travel and go out of the way for the hit. Flag! Also about me some slashes get called. they game has changed since the 80's good bad or indifferent. Not sure the game you are taking about but I have seen some missed calls too. It happens, it has always happened.

Which game: from 1 goal games.

But send us a link of the game let the boc fans be judge and jury. That's is what you are asking. To answer you're question yes a few changes were rule implemented but not every hit No, some yes. Send us a link and let us see for ourselves. But be careful The jury of popular opinion may lead to "good hit" if even illegal.






What you dream as 100% clean I would love to see to,judge. What game and send us a link so,we can be the judge and jury, after all isn't that what you want isn't that why you are posting it here.

I understand the question but a lot of kids transfer schools that never picked up a lacrosse stick - I think lacrosse is a big part of the equation for many kids but if lacrosse is taken away they can always transfer as many many non lacrosse players do

I was not at the game but spoke to a WM parent and he had a lot of reasons for the loss but in a 5 min conversation never once mentioned the refs, more about not being able to hold the lead and not capitalizing on enough opportunities - i will ask him what he thought about the reffing next time i speak to him

I wasn't talking about a specific game. Just in general every HS game I watch if there is any contact and a kid falls down a flag is thrown. I'm not comparing today's game to the 80's or 90's when it was still a contact sport. I'm comparing today's game to 5 years ago when some hitting and contact was still allowed.

I was just wondering if the rules were actually changed or not. Since I can't find any evidence that they were changed I am guessing that officials take it among themselves to not call the rules as written but instead to call them the way the mommies want them called.

No one from WM complaining about the refs, calls go both ways. They were beat by quot and NP in two very great games. it is as simple as that. WM will be fine and compete in the playoffs at a very high level.

They are not a national championship caliber team but they are very strong. Losing a few games is not a bad thing and it is certainly not like they were blown out. Both games down to the wire and WM just couldn't close...

Actually, the post said VM--a few posts later, the person again said VM. No idea what they are referring too, but assure you that WM parents (at least this parent) not complaining about ref calls. Every game has good and bad calls, these are HS refs picking up some extra income...bad calls every week at college level also, just have to take the good ones with the bad and move on.

that isnt true. Ivy's use the academic index for student athletes and a 27 ACT and a 95 average show an index of 191, well above the minimum 171 needed for Ivy acceptance.

Great question to ask. Just remember that the kids are caught up in the euphoria when you ask them that question. you won't know the answer until after the injury or the realization that playing time will only occur in blowouts.

stop crying like a baby. you lost. if you were the clear cut better team, the refs wouldn't be able to influence the outcome. Take the loss like a winner looking to build on it not a loser pointing fingers that it must be somebody elses fault.

Northport is really looking good after the last two wins over very talented teams. I was surprised at their depth. They obviously have a huge advantage at the x against most teams such as the WM game. But SE couldn't even handle them even after being dominant at x. They are going to be tough to get past. Looking forward to the Connetquot match up next week.

Who is for a Nassau super class? Let's put all the top teams in one division Pequa, Syo, port, lynbrook, GC, manhasset, LB , CSH, Carey, wantagh and Hicksville. Each year a couple of teams could shifted In Or out based on their record. I think this is similar to what they do in European soccer. It will give each team 10 meaningful games and still allow them to have non league games against the Catholics, Suffolk teams etc. tired of watching three teams duke it out in Nassau class A. Non super league teams would have something to work towards as well. Thoughts? PS if I left out your team I mean no offense.

I wrote against a super in Suffolk where the same thing happens. Look at Connectquot they would have been left out. Instead of a super conference don't have all of the better team play all the weaker teams. They are 4 good 4 medium and 4 bad.. And this goes for most of the states sections. There are plenty of weaker teams for them to play.

Make all the good play each other plus all mediums teams and 2 badsthen add 2 Nassau 2 west 3 split with ct/nj/pa/md. (This has the medium teams doing the same. Just schedule it in a way that there is crossover.
In reality LI lax is much better than the rest of the state our boys get royaly screwed not playing for a state championship against each other.

Catholic is no different, catholic conference games at best have 3 other schools but mainly Chamy and StA but they go out and play various teams. Imagine if publics did that. St As and Chammy would Lose the strangle hold on getting top players. I know you go for the school. Yadda yadda yadda.

Our coach would be dead set against a super team conference. He likes his 6 or 7 garbage wins to pad his record. Do that for enough years and you become a garbage team. Credit to GC playing a good non league schedule. Even when they are down they play the best.

We had senior night at my son's school, he is a freshman and I am not familiar with what is normal for lacrosse, as my daughter played volleyball. There were 15 seniors this year. The coach lined them up and had them appear from least playing time to most (or I suppose least valuable to most valuable). It was obvious and the players knew it, and seemed surprised, this was new this year. It seemed very odd to me, as in a girl's sport players are typically honored on this night just for being in the program and graduating, and the team banquet is used to honor special accomplishment. Parents were very upset as this was different from previous years, where players were honored by jersey number. I think the boys already know if they are the team star, not every kid is, and it seemed almost sadistic for the coach rub it in, it ruined the night for some of the parents. Is this common in boys HS sports, or is the coach really as crazy as the other parents think.

And no HS coach works harder in helping kids through the recruiting process.

And I would love the above poster to say if he has a kid o the team ad if his kid plays because playing time usually is a direct correlation to Calabria bashing.

So, parents keep complaining, keep getting drunk before the games, Keep throwing punches in the stands and keep $upporting your coach until your kids not playing the whole game and then, and only then, show you are real BRAVE and make an anonymous post about your coach on BOTC .

In high school or college it's always about Senior leadership, maturity and experience. When your son is a Senior I doubt you'll be advocating for an underclass kid to take your sons field time because some mommy or daddy Thinks their kid is better. The benefit of the doubt always goes to the Senior.

Not a meaningful difference when you factor in that GC has the toughest strength of schedule of these. Safe to say GC has among the best defenses on the island. Other teams are far more advanced offensively and possess the ball more which also accounts for differential.

First post said best on LI the second post said among the best - that is why the guy posted the GAA, to say that yes they are good but a few teams could make the same argument
Posted By: Anonymous Re: 2015 Spring Boys Varsity Lacrosse - 04/28/15 03:23 PM
While GAA is a important measure of defense, there are a lot of stats that need to taken into account such as FO %, Save %, where are shots taken, groundball wins. Also, can your defense shut down the opposing teams best player. I am not sure it is possible to have a best D or O - most important to have a best team and that is easy - just win the last playoff game of the year.....

they (GC) may have among the best defense on LI, but you need more than 3 saves in the cage.

Strong schedule yes but they lost to most of those good schools. When you lose it means you did not play good defense. The only reason they are making a run is their conference is weak and that is who they are playing. They are only going to get weaker the next 3-4 years. Nothing in pipeline and those who are may leave for Chaminade unless coach makes promises of Varsity move up like he has done so many times in the past. A lot of unhappy people because of those promises and playing time.

I agree that there conference is really weak. Carey, Long Beach & Calhoun are the next best teams in that order. Wantagh is typically good but not this year. Not much talent on that team, which is really unusual? But none of these teams are at GC’s level. GC has played some tough teams within 3 goals. But they are not on the same level as the elite teams. Massapequa and Syosset.

Dont think either want to jinx themselves. Hard to call this one. Ward Melville winning spins LI lax into a tizzy. Just as much as WQest beating East.

Why does E.C. have anything to do with the popularity of a high school game? If anything I think it makes the games more exciting. Kids who are committed generally looking to win instead of playing for their stats.

We played Wantagh and I think they had some decent talent. Maybe not on par with previous years though. That seems to be the story throughout the conference. They always have players to reload every year but can't get over the hump (GC). How about LB only downed by one goal to GC.

Nothing new here as it pertains to publics beating the Catholics. Historical perspective is important to understand stand. Oh, and paying $10k to send your kid to a catholic school is hardly the definition of rich. Get over it.

When playing in a mismatch, what obligation does the team with the lead have to make the game respectable?

The best I have heard is that if you have a large lead you should never put a 20th point on the board. I am specifically talking to the HS Varsity level. In the non-hot beds, there are plenty of mismatches and some coaches just don't see themselves as having a obligation to help grow the game. All thoughts are appreciated.

Here's a question I will put out there for discussion.

Is it more demeaning to an inferior opponent to continue to compete OR pass the ball around and play keep away while they chase?

This has been a hot topic for ever and I for one don't know which way is better.

Varsity coaches try to avoid 20 goals. Sometimes it is hard but most will try and not score 20. And you never score that 20th with any starter in the game.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: 2015 Spring Boys Varsity Lacrosse - 04/29/15 12:53 PM
I don't think any coach is obligated to pull up to keep the score down. There are 2nd and 3rd string players that see their only play time in these lopsided games. If they get a chance to score, maybe the only time for them all season, take it. There is nothing better than a non starter making the box score with the little playtime he might get. The coach should just do his best to play the bench.

Great question and a debatable issue for sure. Don't know what's worse, shooting and scoring or playing keep away for half the game. Both are demoralizing in their own way.

With shooting the losing team has a chance at regaining possession. At the very least, teams should go deep into their bench after securing a comfortable lead.

Yes, "Lacrosse People" will consider the strength of the lacrosse program when selecting a town to live in. Just like in college where some of the best Universities in the country also have strong lacrosse programs. Some of the best School Districts on the Island also have great lacrosse programs.

I have seen coaches up by 10 or more with starters still in game, double teaming and pushing the offense. There is a right way to win and lose a game. The HS division should be broken down by talent so all teams have competitive games. It is not what either team wants with that big a gap in ability.

To your first point I will say 10 goals in a lacrosse game can be made up quickly. It happens often so I understand keeping the pressure on at that point.

To your second point I will add there is no way to make all divisions competitive all the time. The team personnel change every year and in your scenario who would be evaluating the talent to determine placement? it's impossible to do as you described.

Finally I would say to the teams that struggle year in and year out that maybe it's time to evaluate the program a a whole. What I mean by that is take note of the HS teams that are "on top" every year and you will see good coaches and a strong youth program. If you want to change a losing tradition then simply get to work changing the youth program and varsity coaches. The AD and the BOE can handle the coaches and parents can handle the youth program. Get to work!!

I have seen coaches up by 10 or more with starters still in game, double teaming and pushing the offense. There is a right way to win and lose a game. The HS division should be broken down by talent so all teams have competitive games. It is not what either team wants with that big a gap in ability.


To your first point I will say 10 goals in a lacrosse game can be made up quickly. It happens often so I understand keeping the pressure on at that point.

To your second point I will add there is no way to make all divisions competitive all the time. The team personnel change every year and in your scenario who would be evaluating the talent to determine placement? it's impossible to do as you described.

Finally I would say to the teams that struggle year in and year out that maybe it's time to evaluate the program a a whole. What I mean by that is take note of the HS teams that are "on top" every year and you will see good coaches and a strong youth program. If you want to change a losing tradition then simply get to work changing the youth program and varsity coaches. The AD and the BOE can handle the coaches and parents can handle the youth program. Get to work!!


Thanks for the speech HOp.

All things being equal and if I think my kid will be a lacrosse player I am moving to WM not SWR, Manhasset not North Shore and or Port Washington not GNN - just sayin'
you probably can't afford to

I started with "all things being equal" meaning same house prices, similar education ect. I would pick a lacrosse town over a o lacrosse town . All very good schools

I see your point but would you actually uproot your family and move to a district just for lacrosse. I think not. I was not able to evaluate my son when he was 4 years old. Luckily I bought my house where the lax is decent.

Is it more demeaning to an inferior opponent to continue to compete OR pass the ball around and play keep away while they chase?

Guess your one of the parents who needed the speech. You think you can write a schedule huh?
Ok then...As a board member of US Lacrosse LIMLF and 40 years of lacrosse experience I will certainly look you up and recommend you get involved in HS scheduling. Then you can get involved instead of posting ridiculous comments challenging me on a topic I have decades more experience than you do.
As far as moderating goes let me if you enjoy my moderation of your post. Good luck.

Friends and LV were flashes in the pan...Return to Status quo...CSH in Nassau C it would seem... though Seaford seems to be making consistent improvement each year... Where are all those Friends and LV fans from last year declaring CSH's reign being over?? still plenty of season left though...

That didn't last long, will be out now after loss to Port. Hope they enjoyed the 15 min!

I would keep them in. Northport, WM and Quot are a push with anyone of them being able to beat the other on any given day. Nothing wrong with having a 9-8 loss to a very strong Northport squad.

I am not from SWR but from my view it goes to show how a good coach can make a big difference in a year for a good team. Last year SWR lost 5 games by (1) goal (2 of them ot) then their 6th loss was a 2 goal game. from all the crap spewed on here last year you would have thought the games wernt that close.

winners find a way to win.
