In reply to the last post of the old thread, look up the article in the Baltimore sun from last year "5 Female UMBC Lacrosse Players Suspended For Threatening Violence " a very real problem about upperclass v. younger players although this was college

Have had kids moved up for various sports for both boys and girls and the upperclassmen have never been an issue . Parents of upperclassmen have .

On a different note I recall a few very vocal Huntington parents bashing their coaches because they felt there was such an obvious bias toward certain club players etc especially at the goalie position . I just read the college rankings and see that the #4 ranked team in the country will be starting the true freshmen goalie that I believe is the player they all felt got such favoritism from her coach. I guess the former Huntington coach was not the only one who thinks so highly of this young player. If that is the case it kind of makes all the complaint by these Elevate people seem a lot less credible and also seems that a coach may have lost her job because of these nonsensical parents.

I'm not an Elevate fan for a why you stirring this up? While last years starting goalie at Huntington may very well be an excellent player, the other goalie who sat is currently a senior committed to play at UNC. I guess someone else thinks very highly of THAT young player.

Sounds like two good players, some programs would kill for that problem of two good goalies. Unfortunately it seemed like a matter of waiting your turn to play. From the sounds of it both are hugely talented, and you can't fault a coach for starting one over the other. To bad DK wasn't coaching at Holly Trinity last year, the girl could of went there to play.

Maybe, maybe not. The difference is one is being touted as the starting player at the D1 level after proving herself in fall games and on the practice field. While committing to UNC is a nice accomplishment ,no one knows the facts around it. Do not know the kid personally but their is the possibility that she is a great student and would have gotten in academically or that she wanted no money so why would the school not take a chance and have her commit.

That whole statement is nonsensical BS.

agreed..total nonsense..i dislike DK like everyone else--if not more, but any kid who suits up on a UNC Lax team deserves every bit of plaudits that she has coming...the fact that Elevate was her travel program is a feather in the cap...maybe she got in because of her grades?...who gives a F--K?...she is playing D1 lax on one of the top teams in the country...

It doesn't work that way at the top programs. Call any of the top programs (by top I am talking top 20 to 30 or so) and tell the coach "hey, my daughter is a great student and I am not looking for a scholarship" and see what happens. They do not just commit kids because they have good grades and the parents are not looking for a scholarship. There is no need to carry dead wood especially at one of the best programs in the country.

The top 10 - 20 programs do not have any trouble filling their rosters with the girls that they "recruit". They also recruit more girls than they "offer" spots to. I would bet that if North Carolina offered her a spot she is pretty damn good.

You are spot on with the parent being the issue, at least in the Sayville case. Who in their right mind goes on the internet stirring up trouble for 12 year old girls. Word has it the coaches know exactly who it is, only causing trouble for themselves really, or even sadder for their daughter.

And the starting goalie was a senior last year so why should she sit for a junior of equal talent? And I'm not saying they're equal. I don't know either of them. But JS knows goalies. He had the 2013 and 2014 D1 goalie of the year. And it was at SBU, not UNC. He builds his teams from the defense out. This young lady comes in as a freshman to unseat the starting goalie, a junior? She's got to be all that and a bag of chips. I'm sure the young lady your taking about its fantastic. But she's only committed to UNC and they probably will have 3 more on the team by the time she gets there. Will she be starting for UNC? Who knows, but I can tell you who is starting this year. Starting for the top defensive unit in the NCAA.

I bet you the former HTon coach feels pretty vindicated now.

The coach doesn't care about this site. That's a joke. The whole situation is laughable and will work itself out in the spring. The girls in question are either going to help the team win OR they will play the game like they do now and try to run through defenders. That won't work against bigger, stronger better players. So they will have to learn to play a team game. Eventually that will help the team win. Maybe not this year or even next, but in future years it definitely will. The Sayville program has some very talented girls. There is a strong group in 10th grade and some very strong 11th graders; however, there is not much below the current 10th graders. The next best girls are these 7th graders. Are they ready for varsity? Who knows, it's not my call. The coach would probably prefer to get them in now to learn the system so that they can be his core in two years. It makes sense from a coaches perspective, but from a player/parent perspective it's a disaster. Let's see how it goes in the spring and leave this alone.

Why is it that both Newfield and Centereach independently on their own are Class A schools but they are allowed to combine for Girls Lacrosse as Middle Country? Newfield has 1379 students and Centereach has 1138. How is it possible that they do not have enough girls to field separate teams? Do they combine and then have cuts?
Posted By: Anonymous Re: High School Lax Girls - 02/03/16 08:33 PM
I was hoping all of this was a dead issue. Both goalies are great. If equal start the senior but the Junior could have had more work. As for the team overall, it was very talented individually but never played like a team. who's fault is that you can draw your own conclusions, but when a player is told to do something and they repeatedly do not do it. They should not play no matter how loud the parent is. Period. Particularly on a deep team. The elevate BS was a joke and all people who know the deal treated it that way. Let him go back to the High School where his kids have played. Not HHS scouting for talent. People aren't that stupid. This was also the first year that 7th graders played at the high school level. there were a few selected by the varsity head coach. Just so happens her daughter who is a good player is in that mix. One would think after an under-achieving season the year before the coach might have had the sense to keep her own kid in middle school for the season she wasn't a must option on JV. Certainly opened the coach to further speculation. You have to feel bad for all involved. Parents should learn, let the players play. If your kid is getting screwed over go to another school. Coaching selections should also have no family ties no matter how well handled, it always gives the people something to complain about.

Lots of schools struggle to field 2 teams of girls lacrosse. Our school recruits 1st time players in the lunch room for JV because anyone that can throw and catch has already been pulled up to varsity!

Oh yeah because the $6,000 coaching salary can't be found in a $100 million school budget. Give me a break. They don't have enough interest, if they did they would have independent teams like every other sport

Teams aren't meant to be district teams but school teams... Get it "school" teams. If not you would not need special dispensations for schools to merge in order to form a team.

Then don't field two teams. You are supposed to r fruit to field teams. Should be doing it during the MS years. Looking at gym classes.

Last I checked middle country has some very good players wonder what the mix of geographic location of the stars there.

Can't see how anyone would question what MR does. He's not my daughters coach and I don't live in Sayville but I wish he was and we wish we did but I'm not crazy enough to move our family for lacrosse. He's right up there with all the best high school coaches on LI and a really good person in addition to that. I just don't understand how any parent can question coaches of this kind of caliber. Whatever his strategy or plan is - it is to make his team stronger and win. If that involves 7th graders then so be it.

I never gave the topic much thought but you bring up a very good point. If they are cutting kids I think it needs to be addressed by Section XI. I am pretty sure the parents of the stronger players at Sachem East and West, Smithtown East and West and HHH East and west would be happy to combine in order to become more competitive.

No problem if they want to combine and field only one team but they should not have cuts.

So your saying huntington goalie played selfish and ignored the coaches , And the coach did nothing because the parents were loud ?

Who said goalie, no one. The team overall was free lancing during games. Really difficult to even thing how a goalie would be seen as free lancing, except for perhaps on clears. Which is a whatever. Both goalies are extremely good players and will be team leaders on the next level.

I guess then 4th grader is still probably better than your daughter who didn't get brought up I. Probably why you are crying so much. Go back to the 4th or 5th team of your travel club and keep complaining to those parents. Guess you wasted some $$$

Wow, you seem to have a lot of animosity. Didn't read the question that way you did at all.

Please tell us why "WM will surprise". They have had plenty of talent over the years but they never get it done. What is different this year? If as you say "the talent is there for sure" then the logical question is "did they get a new coach?". What else has changed that would cause them to surprise?

I asked the question and I am not disgruntled. Ward Melville has a new AD and there have been rumors about a new coach. True or just rumors?

Serious question, please no bashing, has anyone gotten recruited recently because of their high school coach? Are they still relevant
Posted By: Anonymous Re: High School Lax Girls - 02/12/16 01:42 PM

No bashing, but just making a few points. This question leads to the assumption that the purpose of playing is solely to get recruited. There are girls who get recruited for many reasons, I have heard of girls sending in recruiting videos for Soccer, B-ball and field hockey who included Lax in their recruiting videos to show athleticism and ended up getting recruited to play lax rather than their "primary sport" (doesn't happen often but more frequently than you think). But the majority of recruiting happens in two forums; the first being the club scene, the second being camps and these "elite" showcases such as the Nike 120 (many times arranged through club, but HS coaches can recomend girls as well).

Now to the question of whether or not a HS coach is still relevant? The answer is certainly yes, and for a few reasons. Your daughter will spend almost 3 months practicing with the HS coach, so whether or not they are good will impact your daughter's development in one direction or the other, this is huge because your daughter will probably have more HS practices each year (or close) than club. In addition to on field impact, the HS coach can/should still have a supporting presence during recruiting (usually not a primary role). A good coach can/should facilitate needed info to potential college coaches, grades, stats etc.

So they are relevant, and the better your HS coach is the more positive impact it will have on the overall development of your daughter and the cast that plays with her.

Players get recruited because of "the player" not because of the HS or club coach/director. At least at competitive college programs. There are so many "recruiting" events these days that college coaches watch the players multiple times. Summer tournaments, Fall tournaments, college camps, and several high profile showcase events are all opportunities for college coaches to watch the girls play. When college coaches like what they see they reach out to the player (most of the time it is through the club director).

HS coaches are not relevant as far as recruiting is concerned.

In my town the Varsity coach is heavily involved in the process. He makes and receives calls daily. He is more involved in the second tier players. The one or two studs get it done through the club scene but many more are helped directly by him.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: High School Lax Girls - 02/12/16 06:23 PM
Same goes for one of the girls coaches in our town who is so heavily involved in everything from year long youth lacrosse training , personal fitness trainer , and even a personal life coach for each participant . He also makes sure they play on the best possible travel organization , regardless you can afford it or not , he needs ratings !

1. West Islip. Over the past two years they are 40 - 4 with a State Championship. Good coaching and a winning attitude will take them far. Strong leadership. Coaches and players expect to win.

2. Middle Country. Will compete but last year might have been their year. 18 - 1 last year and combined 29 - 7 over the past two years. I think they will be in the mix. Maybe they play with a chip on their shoulder. Are they hungry after last year?

3. Northport. 24 - 12 over the past two seasons. Coaching and tradition will keep them competitive. Not sure the horses are there to win the county but you never know. Usually play with a lot of attitude and emotion. Combine that with being well prepared for big games and they can surprise.

4/5. Toss up Smithtown East / Smithtown West. West is 24 - 10 while East is
23 - 11. the last two seasons. Not sure either team has the depth to challenge the top teams.

6. Ward Melville. 19 - 14 past two years. Historically will make playoffs and then lose to a team that they had beaten during the year. Better than .500 but can't see them winning.

Not sure if anyone else has a shot. Sachem East?

Good luck to all.

Some not all of the people involved with this lax program have that attitude. I suspect it comes from one of their 2021 Mt. S. youth coaches. Played against both on seperate occasions in different scenarios, and they have been crazy 100% of the time. Real winners those two.

Sounds like the usual control issues inherent in the town program – cronyism, living by the bay, maybe being a member of the 'club', travel coach affiliations – and this is just the girls' side. Kind of like most programs, huh?

DO you really think that a coach would not put his best 12 girls on the field? Even if the 7th or 8th graders were on varsity, they would play based on their ability to get the job done. To play a less skilled girl would be ludicrous. Now having an 8th grader and 10th grader all other things being equal, I may lean towards playing the younger player as I could get more years and development out of her. Let's face it if an 8th grader is as good as a 10th or 11th grader now at this point the upside to this player is greater. Many times an 8th grade travel girls with triple or more game (including big games in finals of tourns) that a non-travel but solid mutli-sport upperclassman. But there is much to be said for emotional maturity of a player as well. So many variables, and many ways to look at it. Depends on the coaches philosophy.

Why are parents "lobbying" for their daughters? Let them tryout/play without your phone calls, emails and texts. You are not the coach and shouldn't be in their ear anyway. Everyone knows the moms and dads who do this over and over.

If I may give an opinion, this whole discussion could end if NY State would go to the 4 year varsity rule. Personally, No 7th or 8th grader should play varsity. Say what you want about the best players, but if the district puts in a coach that, in this day and age, only wants to coach during season, and not invest the time in the youth organization, than they should only play with the available players from high school. The only exception should be if not enough girls tryout (20). If you look at the most successful programs all have very good youth programs.

Yes, I do think there are coaches who do not play the best 12 kids. It happens in our district all the time. It creates a negative divisive environment for the team and a toxic sideline for the parents. For me to speak as to why this happens would be pure speculation but it has been happening for a long time. As a result the team consistently under achieves every year. Very unfortunate situation, all of the girls deserve better.

That would fix many a problem if Huntington were to adopt that rule. The social impact of girls playing up by such a large margin is monumental.

this makes no sense to me and while I think parents think this sometimes, it is not logical. Why would a coach not play the kids that could help them win? If they win over time, they keep their job. The thought of playing players who are not the best in the coaches mind (we may not agree with him/her) does not pass the logic test.

HS Coaches do not always play their best players. A HS team that makes no changes in the lineup, ever, from game 1 to the last game is doing so either to make it easy/simple for the coaches for due to the usual HS athletics baloney that goes on in many districts. Not every player will perform at their top level every day in every game. Each game brings a different opponent which likely would warrant tweaking in the players on the field. If this never happens, it's not because a kid or two or three on bench are not as good as a few of the starters who were named on day 1.

Don't kid yourself about the importance of winning at the HS coaching level. A tenured teacher coaching at their own school is very hard to get rid of due to teacher contracts. In fact, that's how lots of them get their coaching jobs in the first place - there is definitely a pecking order and teachers are at the very top.

Is there something wrong with you ? What you said proves nothing , maybe the D3 commit is better or was a better fit, or was a team player, or hustled more, or was a lefty, or the coach just thought was better. Not even sure of what your point is but if you believe that a D1 commit is automatically better than a D3 commit then your previous posts about Spallina make more sense to me.

From what I understand, MP has also 'promoted' 2 8th graders and 1 7th grader to varsity; that's the same amount of 10 graders (2) and 9th graders (1) also on varsity. My understanding is that if these girls are promoted to varsity, they have to get playing time.
With the core of solid 12 and 11th graders who will play, that is going to leave a bunch of angry 11th and 12th grade parents whose girls aren't playing.
MP fired their coach last year because of incompetence and they bring in a quality coach who beings up a 7th and 2 9th graders; this sounds like a train wreck to me. The funny thing is the 7th graders father is cray cray and now he has a 7th grader on varsity and an 11th grader playing jv...let the fun begin.

You are wrong! It's not only about winning, but that attitude is what has ruined the sport and a whole lot of friendships along the way. The blinders and desperation to have your child play varsity or have a certain amount of playing time is the whole other dimension to the story.

Its ridiculous that those kids were moved up. They are good 8th graders but none are the exceptional player, all are on the smaller side, and were moved up as a group because the parents are such a horror that if they moved up 1 or 2 the other parents would have gone ballistic. That program will end up a horrible mess as multiple kids who are actually high school age will end up quitting the team.

Bringing up the couple of 7th and 8th grade club players is hurting many programs. Girls in 9th, 10th, 11th that are serviceable players are quitting because some underclassman are jumping up in the batting order. So on lots of these teams you have a handful of really good club girls, the middle girls have quit after getting squeezed and the girls filling out the roster were recruited in gym class. The only one benefitting is the 7th and 8th graders padding their athletic resume but the program suffers.

Move to NJ, can't play H.S> lacrosse unless you are in the 9th grade. Avoids all of these issues.

privates don't allow MS boys/girls to play up on HS level teams...seems silly to have a Designated Hitter-like rule where one group allows(publics) and another does not (privates/Catholic)..make it uniform and be done with it...small towns I guess could benefit but larger school districts prob could do just as well without allowing MS kids to play up....

West Islip does not have a history of moving MS players to Varsity. In their history only one girl has been brought up to Varsity as an 8th grader and she turned out to be an All American as a Junior.

Good Coaches:

- know how to earn the respect of their players.
- know how to identify talent.
- know how to develop talent.
- know how to utilize talent.
- know how to encourage.
- know how to build confidence.
- know how to lead.
- know how to teach.
- know how to create and maintain team enthusiasm.
- know how to help kids develop character.
- know how to motivate.
- know how to build comradery.
- know how to create a positive environment.
- know how to get the most of of their players.
- know how to build a team.
- know how to do the right thing.
- know how to learn from mistakes.
- know how to make adjustments.
- know how to lose.
- know how to coach.
- know how to win.

Success (in HS sports) should not always be measured in wins and losses. A bad coach will create division and destroy the moral of a team. They may win games and maybe even win a championship but they will never be successful.

How is your coach?

You contradict yourself. In your list you say know how to win, then you go on to say a bad coach can't do any of these, then you say at the end of your post that a bad coach may even win a championship. Which is it? Just anither armchair quaterback (armchair coach in this case). I am sure you are an expert. Read some of Coach John Wooden's books then get back to us on how to be a good coach. It's much deeper than that.

Successful programs develop players. They never have to bring up little kids. It appears that in most cases like this, boys OR girls sports teams, students are pulled up for reasons unrelated to their play (nepotism, father coaches team, father coaches in district, parents pay coach, parent is a board member, etc..). It's pretty silly.

West Islip does not have a history of moving MS players to Varsity. In their history only one girl has been brought up to Varsity as an 8th grader and she turned out to be an All American as a Junior.


So what you are saying is your program has a history of moving a player from middle school to varsity but you do not want that to count. She is a very good player and deserved to be moved up so they did , end of story.

I hear what your saying, but there are some very good younger players out there. I know its been stated in the past, but whats the difference between sports,music and genius students? No one should be pulled up then? The amazing young music student isn't taking the older music students spot? That conversation is probably going on in the high school music forum.

No, I think the poster is saying that 1 girl being pulled up over however many years does not qualify as "having a history" of doing so. She was the exception, and apparently deservedly so.

Sounds like a bad lowlife daddy coach from our town.. complete Poison!! Although he smiles to everyones face like everyone counts . His inside agenda is to split up and seperate his goons from the rest of the community who doesnt participate because he feels his creation is superior.

Are you dense ? I don't care if they have done it 1 or 5 times they have "an established record " of moving a kid up which gives them a history of doing so. Deservedly so because she became an all American is more an opinion than factual. Knowing the kid she absolutely deserved to be pulled up , knowing the way the all American selection process works tells me that moniker means very little (very political) .The fact remains that any public school that can claim to be defending state champs in girls lacrosse this season have a history of pulling up middle school kids to play varsity lacrosse.

A player moving from MS to Jv or Varsity usually occurs in a smaller district. It can be done to help fill out a need in a specific position etc. it can also be done to help give a player valuable experiences that they will not get playing Jr high teams. JV will play more games, usually have better coaching and more intensive training and competition. A players maturity and well being should be considered by the coaches and parents during this time to ensure it is what is best for all involved. Some towns have youth teams that average 10-12 kids per grade, when you lose kids along the way to music, other sports, social interests the need arises to add kids from another grade to support the program.

You're kind of right, If you do something once you have a history, Doing that thing continuously establishes a policy. Over the last 9 years of L.I. and State champs you can see a pattern.Not being sure of the make up of every team involved, I'm pretty sure FDale, 'set, GC and NPT, do not make bringing up M.S. kids policy ( not that they don't do it, the kid needs to be special) I am not sure about SWR so maybe someone can tell us, I'm pretty sure at the time it wasn't policy

out of 9 years (2007-2015)
FDale made 8 Li champ winning 6 with 6 state titles
GC made 6 LI champ winning 6 with 6states
SWR made 5 LI champ winning 5 with 5 states
'set made 6 LI champ winning 1 with 1 state
NPT made 3 LI champs winning 1 with 1 state

This history tells me that schools that play MOSTLY upperclassmen win, schools that resort to pulling up M.S. kids don't fare as well


Posted By: Anonymous Re: High School Lax Girls - 03/11/16 10:26 PM
Are the people that make the most noise about this the parents who's kid gets bumped for a younger player and then they all cry foul? To the vocal posters, if it was your 8th grader getting pulled up would you tell the coach no she's too young?

You really are pathetic , someone lists a few of the most successful programs and that's what you have to say . So you know SWR has many players they have brought up over the years . Not on the list for some reason are 2 of the more successful programs the past few years ESM and Mt. Sinai both of which consistently bring up middle school players .

The girls lax world is a small one. You end up knowing most all of the top girls in an age group across all LI clubs rather quickly. Of all the girls I know being brought up from 7-8, they are mostly all deserving. There are also some deserving girls who will not be brought up because their districts just don't do that. Every year LI produces a small group of girls who are the household names of NCAA women's lacrosse. Know what most of them have in common? they were also brought up early. Will every girl brought up pan out? NO, Will girls not brought up never become the next Fortunato or Gilroy? NO to that as well. Be happy for the girls and move on, these girls will have a 5-6 year varsity career, if your [lacrosse] bent on hating, you have a long road ahead.

I also didn't mention CSH, Sayville, Wantaugh or North Shore for the same reason, their history is relatively short at this point but you didn't mention them why, is it because your knowledge of lacrosse stops at 110, I said I wasn't sure about SWR but I'm willing to bet the at the time they had there run the need for M.S. players was much less than it is today. The point of the post is to show how the traditionally strong programs have little need to bring up MS players because the programs are strong from youth through high school. GC, FDale, and 'set rarely, if ever bring up MS players, or even start freshman because they don't have to, and they all had, and still have excellent players that waited there turn and didn't cry about it. As far as Mt. S and ESM go lets see if they can consistently win over a number of years with MS girls being brought up, if they do I will be the first to stand up and say you were right

Huntington finally got it right this year. Politics from last year seemed to have resonated with the school because they don't seem to be allowing a parent dictated program. Time will tell if they can keep the lunatic fringe parents out of decision making.

ESM decided that starting this year, no more middle school girls will be brought up. They realized the disaster from last year was not worth the trouble.

Yea you know that A HOLE coach that took the bull by the horns because everyone else just sits around and complains so his head swelled up when he learned people are guliabe and felt he is far beyond knowledge then any coach on the island , you know the one that everyone hates but puts on that happy face around him because they have to put up with it or be singled out.

That is exactly why these players will be denied the opportunity that many have gotten in the past because its not about what best for the program or any individual kid but what will be the easy for the administration.

Typical, rather than address the situation and come up with a policy that is fair, the AD took the easy way out.

Maybe he is spending to much time fighting of discrimination accusations and suits from Female Phys Ed teachers (3 of them, FOIL it) to put work in on a thoughtful policy. This would of never happened if the Coach was a male coach.

It NEVER should be about what's best for any individual kid (or select group of kids). It's should be about the district, the program and the team. In that order.

That's the exact attitude of all the parents who have a kid that is mediocre. Each kid should play at a level that is best for their development. With your logic they should not have AP classes etc because it wastes resources on only a certain select group. At some point you have to stop with the wait your turn and make decisions based on ability and let each kid be placed at a level that is best for their development.Enough with the politically correct "every kid should get their turn to play varsity" .

You sure have a chip on your shoulder. I never said the best kids shouldn't play. that's all subjective but let's not get into that now. A high school team is no different than a college team than a professional team. Decisions have to be made for the good of the organization (district) first and the team next. Just as no professional team should be run around one individual (ask the Knicks - that hasn't worked out so well for them, has it?), no high school team should be run solely around one girl or one select group of girls. And by the way, my "mediocre" kid is getting substantial athletic money (academic money too) from a top 40 school (No, not a top 20 school but that was by design as she wants to play not potentially watch and hope to play).

Agree!!!! The person who is saying for the "good of the district" has no idea what they are talking about. The district provided experiences to students to enrich them. If a kids is playing below their level is it enriching? What you really mean is for the good of the district means. The good of the loud mouths at the board meeting who think their kids failure to accomplish something whether it be pass an honors class, get into select chorus, make the exceptional gifted and talented programs (music or academics), is someone else fault because they are too good. Shut up and go to a Bernie Sanders rally. I'm not bitter I'm sick of the welfare attitude infesting everything and everyone.

Don't worry, Chief, your kid's D1 full ride will still be there even if she plays varsity as a sophomore. It must be hard for her to play with mediocre players... poor thing.

First off a high school team should be run considerably different from a college team ,and a pro team is a whole other story. Your by design statement is just ridiculous, how do you know the team will not be a top 10 team by the time your kid goes there, what makes you think your kid is guaranteed playing time at any school. That said at the high school level what is best for each kid as an individual has to be taken into account .If a kid is talented enough and it is in the best interest of that kid to play varsity then it should not be that kids problem that other kids ego or their parents ego may get hurt.

Sounds like someone is seething that dear daughter did not make the HS team. better get your pen and paper out and start writing your letters to the BOE and the AD. That will get her moved up in proper order. It worked last year, why not give it the old college try and push yourself on the team again this year.

Pulling up middle school kids did not help Huntington the past couple of years to win States or anything else. Maybe this year will be different because we have coaches who will know how to utilize ALL the talent on their bench, not just the same rotation of players.

You got it backwards. Last year when the Esm older kids lost playing time to the move UPS, it was the parents of the older kids who took to writing, complaining, throwing teammates, coaches, AD, board member and anyone else under the bus. Got very ugly on here last year. ESM has too many players and all the parents think their kid is great, especially the group that is chocking out middle school and JV right now looking to get to varsity. I do feel bad because I know some decent players that will never see the field and may end up leaving the sport. Its nice to have a strong youth program but when it has to narrow down for school it becomes cut throat and toxic.

Because some things are bigger than your kids name in newsday that none of us care about but you. Its a team, school community thing. If your kid is going to get $3,500 a year to play in college earn it on your club team. School teams are different than club teams. Seniors should have the leadership positions and there should be a pecking order. Your comments are exactly why lacrosse has the worst atmosphere in all of HS sports.

Are there districts that actually have policies prohibiting pulling up MS kids?

What a bitter, jealous, selfish person you are. You are right, "it's a team school community thing". On a team, the coach should play the best players. The coach should put the team in the best position possible to represent the community. The players who command the respect of their teammates through hard work, commitment, attitude, ability etc.. should have the leadership positions. The pecking order should be determined on the field and it should not have anything to do with what grade the player is in. By the way, the top players get a lot more than $3,500. The reason why lacrosse has the worst atmosphere is people like you. People who think that their kid is owed something. I would be willing to bet that you think that you deserve a pay raise every year even if you do not increase your productivity, improve your performance or become more effective at whatever it is that you do. The whole "Club" thing started because "School" sports took on an "everybody" gets a trophy mentality.
They first started by taking more kids on the team. Then they went to a 5th quarter for the kids that didn't get to play, then they went to "modified" every other quarter plus a 5th quarter so that everyone could play. That mentality is what has ruined school sports.

Yes, and soon all will likely follow suit. For two reasons:
1) if they're going to win, they will do so with or without 7th graders
2) to avoid the headaches created by doing so.

There is always going to be a pecking order but to base it strictly on grade is insane. Should be based on leadership qualities, respect, hard work, communication abilities etc. Just because some kid is older than another does not make them a leader. Just because some kid is older than another should not guarantee them a starting spot. Being a starter , being a captain , being a leader should be earned and not just handed out because you are a senior.

NO crying, no whining, we cheer for the whole team and understand that our kids wont play in college like MOST kids that play HS lacrosse. People like you make it really hard for us to root for your kid but we know you don't care and that makes you a tool

What a bitter, jealous, selfish person you are. You are right, "it's a team school community thing". On a team, the coach should play the best players. The coach should put the team in the best position possible to represent the community. The players who command the respect of their teammates through hard work, commitment, attitude, ability etc.. should have the leadership positions. The pecking order should be determined on the field and it should not have anything to do with what grade the player is in. By the way, the top players get a lot more than $3,500. The reason why lacrosse has the worst atmosphere is people like you. People who think that their kid is owed something. I would be willing to bet that you think that you deserve a pay raise every year even if you do not increase your productivity, improve your performance or become more effective at whatever it is that you do. The whole "Club" thing started because "School" sports took on an "everybody" gets a trophy mentality.
They first started by taking more kids on the team. Then they went to a 5th quarter for the kids that didn't get to play, then they went to "modified" every other quarter plus a 5th quarter so that everyone could play. That mentality is what has ruined school sports.



You are insane. I agree with the other guy. I could only imagine standing next to you on the sidelines... frightening.

If a kid is better they play. End of story, stop complaining. MUst be fun sitting next to you complaining how your kids is not playing because a 7th or 8th grader who runs circles around your kid is starting over her. Freaking crybabies.

NO crying, no whining, we cheer for the whole team and understand that our kids wont play in college like MOST kids that play HS lacrosse. People like you make it really hard for us to root for your kid but we know you don't care and that makes you a tool


Well said. Plus, you kid will be more socially adjusted since they have been around people their age. When I had a freshman playing on varsity - the mental and social changes were amazingly quick. She seems to have grown overnight - I'm not saying grown up or matured since it still takes a little time for proper socialization. That was a freshman with seniors - riding the bus with seniors - talking to seniors about things girls talk about. Then I see this thread and I see the people that are so against "Senior Leadership" because of age and I laugh. I laugh because I think of a 7th grader trying to give advice to a senior or junior about their grades or college recruiting or about boys. I'm seeing with my kids that things have not changed that much since I was their age - the leadership is not just making sure everyone sees the cutters or understands their assignments on the ride. There is leadership in life. I am usually surprised and yet understand why people seem to forget about life - when discussing lacrosse and where their kids are going with it. I guess that part has changed - I remember it as a game that I loved and enjoyed playing with my friends who became my lifelong friends.

Listen to what he says Its about being a team and having a Role. Learn to accept your child's role if they want a bigger Role they have to work for it. ( Even if that role is a 8th or 9th grader playing over a Junior or Senior it goes both ways)

Posted By: Anonymous Re: High School Lax Girls - 03/18/16 03:47 PM
I always thought a tryout be it club or school should be a blind tryout. Now I am not naive to say people don't know who the players are, but the blind part still must apply... blind to who the players are and what grade they are in... if they can play, they can play. I also think a younger kid that consistently plays better than an older kid (be it marginally or otherwise) gets the playing time and their up side is much bigger and worth investing committing the limited time a HS coach has.

sucks yes but this just wait your turn mentality has got to go (along with my kid is committed or on a top club team... so they need to start as an 8th grader has got to go)... you need to earn your spot.

its called sportsmanship

That's about the post I would expect from the parents of the younger WM varsity parents. They think very highly of themselves, daughters, or whatever. Not exactly a pleasant group to be around. Nice to see you throwing upper class players and coaches under the bus. (BTW there's another parent classification you can add to your list).

I am a parent who played college lacrosse. I coached to teach all kids how to play a game I loved. I took pride in watching every kid learn to love the game. I also watched in silence as talented kids were turned off to the game by their parents pushing the D-1 commitment angle and burning the kids out. Both boys and girls. Then the Super star 16 year olds who end up playing in college having had their ego's so inflated having an issue playing a support role at major D-1's because all those kids were super stars. Word to wise, let you kid find their way, if they are good enough they will play where they were meant to play. Being great in 8th grade is OK. But be humble it is a long road.

For the most part I have not seen any negative comments regarding WM girls program or coaches on this site. I have on occasion noticed someone trying to stir the pot and single out a particular group. I suspect that someone is you.

The players and parents at WM have been frustrated for many years. I would not assume that the parents of the younger players are the most frustrated. The longer you are on the team the worse it gets. There are talented girls at every age group if the coaches cant figure it out it is on them. If you think that playing time should be determined by seniority and not ability you are beyond help.

So go back to pointing fingers and trying to stir the pot because you obviously have a problem with someone. Continue to ignore the facts and the history of this program. No one threw upperclassmen under the bus. They put it on the coaches to figure it out .

I was curious what you were talking about so I checked the game's box score. Babylon won 16-9 and the highest number of goals was scored by a girl on the losing team. A few girls on Islip had the majority of the goals and yet you're picking on one girl. It sounds to me like there's more to this

That's from Fridays game vs Islip, I think the poster is talking about the game yesterday vs Lindenhurst.

I am looking at Newsday now - I don't see that much stat padding. A lot of the games were high scoring yesterday and some kids just had more goals than other but there were 20-17, 19-15, etc games which are close games and goals needed to be scored to win the games. Think its more of a function that the games are high scoring so the # of goals scored by the better players are higher. I don't view it as stat padding.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: High School Lax Girls - 03/23/16 03:14 PM
Another point - just because kids don't have assists listed doesn't mean they didn't try! If they feed it to a teammate and that girl is unable to finish it doesn't count as an assist for the kid who gave up the ball and this happens ALL the time!

The great part of this is that one of the two girls who scored 4 goals is real young. So here we have the ¨padding the scores complainer. And wait for it....... One of the girls was a 8th grader..... so according to many on here she should be playing MS lacrosse and waiting her turn..So now those fools can jump aboard... Look now the idiots can complain about two things at once..... SMH

Sorry but my kid was on the losing end of that Babylon game yesterday. Two things,1) the report of the scoring seems to be wrong as I believe we were down 10-1 at some point ,2) The game was non competitive , it was clear from the start we realistically had no chance so the kid putting up 8 goals in a beat down was in my opinion poor sportsmanship. Before the calls of stop crying and have a catch with your kid etc.. Seems to me when you are obviously the better team maybe spread the ball around more etc. Don't mind a team scoring as it gives us a chance to get the ball back but to have 1 kid continuously go to the goal seemed over the top and honestly would think that has to create some issues within the winning team.

Six other kids scored and others had opportunities to score and couldn't finish. Thought this was varsity lax not youth.

Bet the kid didn't score when she was pulled off or when she played defense.

There it is, the me first lacrosse parent. Nobody said don't beat the opponent but move the ball around to kids who might not get another shot all season. Its a team game and nobody cares if your kid gets recruited except you and her club coach

I agree. Ive been watching girls lacrosse for years, you would never see one person score 8 goals on manhasset or Garden city seems to be a suffolk thing. Lets pad our stats against an inferior opponent
Posted By: Anonymous Re: High School Lax Girls - 03/23/16 08:17 PM
I guess you are only referring to girls lax. In boys Garden City and it's supposed legendary coach "Doc" D beat up on a New Hyde Park team 34-0 and their super star attackmen Gibbons had at least 8 goals. Post script, Doc was gone the following year. Gibbons was shut out in the LI championship game by a suffolk Huntington team that was up 19-10 and could have scored more but the coach called off the dogs. Must be a suffolk thing. You must be new to lacrosse.

I'm sure it's not just a Suffolk thing but my daughters have played lax in Suffolk for many years and I can agree with you that some of the most egregious examples are from Suffolk (lets see, the East Islip coaches daughter, the Islip sisters and friend, the WB girl(s), the Bellport girls last year etc..) Like a previous poster said, these teams will usually get shut down by a team that understands defense. IIRC, none of these won Section XI or states.

AS for the poor team that had a girl score 8 against them, they lost by more than 10 two days in a row to a school that is a 1/4 the size of them and a school that is 1/2 the size of them so they have their own issues. While I agree that 8 is a lot to put up, can't the team double that girl and see if that works?
NB also beat up a much smaller team by more than 10 and their top scorer had 7, what's up with that?

Posted By: Anonymous Re: High School Lax Girls - 03/23/16 10:39 PM
I agree with almost all of that, except the part about the WB girls. SA was getting 8 goals in a 13-11 win/loss...those other kids were getting 8 goals in a 19-2 win, big difference. Just my humble opinion and i'm not a suffolk mom

The issue shouldn't be with the player, it should be with the coach. Take the scorers out and let the other girls get some time. These are non league games that are meaningless. When those big girls do get shut down by a better defense, the coach has no one else to rely on because the other girls have never touched the ball.

Again that falls on the coach not the player. Coach has to take her out and let yonunger girls play. Came back to bite them in the rear when Hauppauge finally figured out how to stop them. Coach expected the 8th and 9th graders to all of a sudden be goal scorers when they weren't allowed to shoot all season.

Except for the top programs most coaches wonder why their talent falls off a cliff? its part genetics, part practice and part that they never let the bottom half of the roster develop in games that are being won handily. So then girls quit which is bad for the sport. Now some club parent who had their kid recruited in 8th grade is going to tell me its good that kids quit but I disagree.

Which team is happier? One that has 50% of the team involved in the scoring or one that has 1 girl that goes to the cage 95% of the time?

Team game, recruiting be damned!

I assume you are talking about W Bab last year. No one really needed to figure out how to stop them, it was obvious. They were a weak team despite having two great players. W Bab produces great individual players, not so good on producing team players, that is why their team is weak every year.

At some point if you are a really good player you have to realize the team you are playing is overmatched and also realize its embarrassing to keep scoring.Yes the coach gets most of the blame but so does the player .If it were my kid the 8 goals would be a problem but worse would be the big goose egg for assists.I know here comes the stop picking on little girls comments but if you are such a stud you can put up 8 goals against an inferior team then you should be strong enough to hear some criticism about it.

Not saying this is the reason but I heard the Senior Goalie injured her knee in Basketball and out for the season. I feel sorry for her, I have seen her play many times she is a difference maker.

And yet you are on posting about it . Yes there are much bigger things than girls lacrosse that people are concerned about but why come onto a site about girls lacrosse to post about it. Trying to deflect from the poor sportsmanship, poor coaching, poor team chemistry it all creates is useless when it obviously means everything to the ball hog kids parents.

I get the point that at some point in the game the better players should get other involved, but being surprised about lack of assists is another. Do you know how difficult an assist is in girls lacrosse. It's not hockey, you don't get an assist by simply making the last pass before a goal. Any stats you read in newsday about girls having 6,7,or more assists in a game is just bad scoring or plain BS . I read a boxscore last season that showed a team having more assists than goals, I believe that's impossible. My point is we should not group girls as not being team players simply because their assist to goal ratio is very low.

An assist is one thing , but transition from one end of the field to another by solely one player is just poor coaching ! A player should be looking for their outlet and this should be reinforced. its not rocket science , not run the ball down field as y and z stage for their buddy system play. TEAM is what this game is about , TRUSTING their team without mixed messages from their parents is what separates good from bad . Hopefully the curious coach reading this will catch the hint !

I disagree. I see a lot more goals scored from assists and smart play than from one player trying to bully her way through the defense and having a turnover.

And regarding the team with more assists than goals, UGH. My daughter's college team (not lax) used to fudge the numbers like that. It was the coach's doing and he wanted one girl's stats to be nationally ranked, which they were, but she'd get credit for an assist two passes back from the goal! There's a lot of bull[lacrosse] that goes on in the stats, some of it mistakes and some delberate.

As long as officials constantly reward bad play by offensive players who charge into defenders and into double/triple and quadruple teams but get free position shots the game will never improve. Defenders cannot defend when every call in a game goes against them. The biggest/heaviest girls now charge into the defense and get rewarded.

I get the point that at some point in the game the better players should get other involved, but being surprised about lack of assists is another. Do you know how difficult an assist is in girls lacrosse. It's not hockey, you don't get an assist by simply making the last pass before a goal. Any stats you read in newsday about girls having 6,7,or more assists in a game is just bad scoring or plain BS . I read a boxscore last season that showed a team having more assists than goals, I believe that's impossible. My point is we should not group girls as not being team players simply because their assist to goal ratio is very low.


I disagree. I see a lot more goals scored from assists and smart play than from one player trying to bully her way through the defense and having a turnover.

And regarding the team with more assists than goals, UGH. My daughter's college team (not lax) used to fudge the numbers like that. It was the coach's doing and he wanted one girl's stats to be nationally ranked, which they were, but she'd get credit for an assist two passes back from the goal! There's a lot of bull[lacrosse] that goes on in the stats, some of it mistakes and some delberate.


I agree on real good teams but not on most school teams. My point was that is much more difficult to pick up an assist than most people realize. The pass has to directly lead to the goal and must be the reason the goal is scored ( no catch and dodge to shed a defender). So girls with low assist totals should not be all treated as selfish players

Seems to me when you are obviously the better team maybe spread the ball around more etc. Don't mind a team scoring as it gives us a chance to get the ball back but to have 1 kid continuously go to the goal seemed over the top and honestly would think that has to create some issues within the winning team.


Six other kids scored and others had opportunities to score and couldn't finish. Thought this was varsity lax not youth.


Jeez, what an a-hole answer. I hope you don't teach your children your form of sportsmanship.

Brussels was attacked by terrorists, people died, many people were hurt!! In the grand scheme of things this really means NOTHING!! There are much bigger things people should be concerned about.


And yet you are on posting about it . Yes there are much bigger things than girls lacrosse that people are concerned about but why come onto a site about girls lacrosse to post about it. Trying to deflect from the poor sportsmanship, poor coaching, poor team chemistry it all creates is useless when it obviously means everything to the ball hog kids parents.


You know what you are right, this was a very poor example to use. I was only trying to say there are other things more important than HS lax. It's on the coach and the kid to fix this. I will definitely think twice before hitting submit next time.

Some great players on the Newsday top 100 list. Lets hope their parents don't drink too much Kool Aid and push those kids to beat up on weak opponents by padding their stats in blow out games. Share the ball you'll have a better HS team and a much better time as a group. Regardless of what mom and dad tell you on the drive to Maryland each weekend, its a team game.

Always look for the player who has double digit assists, they are the selfless team players who look for the open stick. Would be great if they got more credit.

Yes, and soon all will likely follow suit. For two reasons:
1) if they're going to win, they will do so with or without 7th graders
2) to avoid the headaches created by doing so.

Coach puts up kids which can get murky. Most coaches don't know lacrosse but do know if a kid is committed to play in college and then the politics of parents and booster clubs are always involved. I am sure most of the list is right but there are always some head scratchers

"if they're going to win, they will do so with or without 7th graders"

Many close games are decided by a single goal. In a team effort the game can swing from a win or a loss simply by having a better player on the field to replace the low end of the roster player on the field.

So what you are saying is that every 7th grader that ever played at any district was never better than a girl they replaced on the field and never contributed to a win????

All that 7th grader has to do is be better than one player and they then contribute to the team win. I know many of the girls who were brought up in 7th grade over the years and in many districts. Maybe some wrongfully so but for most of them they easily belonged and contributed.

I get there are many jealous haters on this site, but get a grip.

There are new rules about the stringing of girls sticks. Strings must be looped through the side walls, not exceeding a gap of 1 1/2 inches between loops. Most girls sticks are illegal because they have never been strung this way before. Most of the stock in lacrosse stores has to go back because they are being sent to stores illegally strung. This new rule applies to high school girls. I would suggest having your daughter ask her coach or bring it to a lacrosse store and have it checked.

According to US Lacrosse, new rule section 8 says each attachment to the sidewall shall be no more than 1.5 inches from its adjacent attachment when measured in a straight line from hole to hole.

Most girls sticks are not strung like that.

This new rule is such a joke. The refs checked my daughters team, apparently had mostly illegal heads. They played anyway. There will be many cancelled games this year if they try to enforce this. This creates a huge problem for all the manufactures as most of what is being sold in stores are illegal. If girls rules and the governing body were not a big enough joke, enter this latest debacle.

I agree completely. There are some teams in lower Nassau divisions that should win their games by 2 touchdowns all season, will have all the goal scoring leaders and then will get smoked in the playoffs. Man up and ask to play in the power conference.

Long Beach and North Shore have upped their game the last few years and pulled away from Plainedge. The three used to battle hard a few years ago. The power division is stacked with good teams not sure who else should be in or out. Scores will be lopsided once you get to the lower divisions

Suffolk runs their leagues similar to the premier soccer league. Depending on how you did the previous year will determine who you play this season. Finish in the bottom 10 and you play the rest of the bottom 10.

Its very early in Nassau but the scoring leaders are all from the bottom division teams who still cant figure out that you need more than a couple of girls to be successful. Top teams run multiple lines, bottom programs run everything through a few girls and that's why their programs will always struggle. Need to develop and include more people in games.

I think the top HS girls programs are successful because the can field 12 strong players at all positions and still have a few strong players come in off the bench - that's where you see the 15/16 girls even on those teams.

Then you have not been watching , Manhassett has been running their offense thru 1-2 girls for years , don't kid yourself. Look at the 3 state champ teams from last year, they all rode their horses and barely spread the ball out, West Islip not as much as the other two

Congrats to a few of the teams today such as Smithtown West and Middle country as the scores may have been lopsided but they obviously spread the ball out and pulled back a little in the second half. They probably could have had a few kids pad their stats but they did not so Kudos to them.

I dont think most score keepers know how to define an assist, Im not saying this particular game had assists. I know for my daughters team assists are missed all the time.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: High School Lax Girls - 03/30/16 02:38 PM
From US LAcrosse

3. ASSIST: An assist is a play made by a player to her teammate who then scores a goal without having to evade excessive defensive pressure other than the goalkeeper. Only one assist per goal may be recorded.
The guideline to award an assist includes two parts: there must be a pass made to the recipient; and the recipient must take a shot. If the passer (potential assister) is able to move the ball to a teammate (recipient), who has maneuvered for a good or more advantageous position to take a shot, then the passer can be awarded with an assist. If the shooter, after receiving the ball from her teammate (passer/potential assister) must outrun or maneuver around any excessive defensive pressure before shooting, no assist can be awarded. It is not necessary for the shooter to possess the ball for a specific length of time, nor must the shooter limit the number of steps taken after she receives the ball for a shot. The only deciding factor, after the recipient receives a pass from her teammate, is the amount of pressure the recipient (shooter) had to evade to put her into a position for the shot, if any.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: High School Lax Girls - 03/30/16 02:42 PM
Also saw box's core where 16 goals were scored with 14 assists being credited. Highly doubtful. The scoring of an assist is very subjective as defined by US Lacrosse. Example player A finds cutter B who then roll dodges to move defender before scoring.does player A receive an assist ? Answer no. Should she ? Absolutely. Point is just because an assist wasn't credited doesn't mean it wasn't done as a team

You can't always go by Newsday stats for assists. The winning coach logs the scores, some are too lazy to list the assists. My daughters team lost the first game, the winning team listed all their assists, and none for our losing team, we had quite a few direct assists. The team manager will have the correct data.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: High School Lax Girls - 03/30/16 04:06 PM
If you look at assist and goals on these as well you will see its the same girls dishing it to each other only! which accumulates the final score of a game . clicky to say the least by the looks of stats . Is it poor coaching ? , or just girls doing what they want and not respecting the rest of the team and the coach ?

Can we at least agree on that they don't run 95% of the offense through 1 or 2 girls?

So if you lose your team/coach/community stink. If you win by too much as described by the holy one on BOTC tour team/coach/community are bad winners!!!! So you must win your games but only by some arbitrary margin or the holy one on here criticizes your team/coach/players/parents/community. Geez....seems a little hyper critical if you ask me. Are you so over managed at your place of business.

The fact that you have to make things up about posters that criticize obvious unsportsmanlike stat padding tells me you are one of the ones encouraging your ball hog to keep it up. Who is being critical of the whole team when in those situations the team is not involved as its usually 1 player being the ball hog.Same can be said about the community, stop being dramatic and tell your kid to pass the ball.

Actually the point is if you win games by to much utilizing more then the 2-3 girls who feed only each other on the field , you can say that you have a phenomenal team. When the coach doesn't follow that type of criteria , people see right through it and as an opossing coach know how to handle the situation when need be.
A good coach can defeat a team like this by the obvious !

Let's be honest... girl's lax is a terrible sport; particularly when they hit recruitment/varsity age. Because refs refuse to call offensive penalties, girls will not even look to pass and go right to the goal (I've seen girls do it with their eyes closed!). Any contact at all results in a free shot 99.999% of the time. There is minimal team work and this distortion of the game is glorified by travel clubs and accepted on varsity. It has become, far and away, the most selfish sport I've had the displeasure of watching. When my eldest daughter went through 7 years ago, they passed, worked the ball, moved without the ball... all the things that make team sports great. Now, with the recruitment emphasis moving from HS teams to club teams, it's all about the commits. The more girls the club team have committed, the better they look, the more money they make. How does a girl get noticed now? Put up gaudy numbers. It's really a shame. And, unfortunately, unless they start calling offensive charges or putting them in pads, this is only going to get worse.

College coaches know what they're looking at. The last thing they are interested in is the kid who is a one dimensional player. They typically go to recruiting events with an idea of the players they want to see. That list is formulated by the network they rely on to alert them to talent. That network is everyone from club coaches, HS coaches, other coaches who they might not be competing with for players, former players, etc..
They will watch their list for everything from sideline demeanor to off ball movement, stick skills, leadership,....scoring is just one thing. And by the way if a pass should have been made but wasn't just so the ball carrier could score....big no-no.
And Mom and Dad, rest assured they will find out who the parents are of their recruiting targets, and will watch your behavior too. More than one college coach has told me the last thing they want to recruit are problem parents!!!

The game is very physical at the college level, coaches like players who arent araid of contact and are willing to initiate it on either end of the field

Just to piggy back, one of the best players in our area (and according to USA today and others one of the best in the Country) didn't lead the County on goal or assists (or even her team for that matter) last year (she's a senior this year). Yet she was a field general offensively, who also cause chaos on the defensive side (especially in the ride).

Manhasset beat Oceanside by a score of 17-8. 13 Manhasset girls had points in that game. That's sharing the ball and getting players off the bench when clearly the opponent was NO match for them. All three goalies played. Cudo's to Manhasset, the players and the coaches. They get it.

They get it plain and simply because they have the players !!
Very few High School teams have more than a few girls that can really play. Teams like Manhasset, GC, ESM, Wantagh, Mt Sinai and others have 20 girls or more that can truly play. That's the only reason they may have balanced scoring. The true test will be when and if they play each is the scoring as balanced or the playing time for as equal.

Lets see when some teams that don't have 20 players win by 20 and one girl has 12 goals. There is no excuse in those type of games not to play everyone. If these teams shared the ball more would stick with the sport

So true!!!...said it before, but just watch the parents of players on sidelines (the Toxic sidelines) when their daughter is not in on the scoring...they only cheer for little Susie when she it is their daughter and when she scores...has become the most selfish, self absorbed game out there...really believe that parents would rather their little princess score a bunch and team lose...

Again this doesn't fall on the players shoulders, it's the coaches fault. You're asking a teenage girl to make decisions that are morally right when the adult coaching the team can't make the right decision. Kids will continue to play the way they always play when they are on the field. Take them off and let the others have their shot. Coaches have to be responsible for the stat padding not the players.

It does not happen in my town. If you don't share the ball you don't see the field. It's on the coach plain and simple. If the culture doesn't allow it it doesn't happen.

I would classify it by saying that most of the people on here do not understand the game. Most of the people who carry on about the ball hogs are in fact the selfish ones. They want the ball passed to their daughter so she can score. These are the parents who only value goal scoring. That is why they get so upset when one girl scores 5 or 6 goals and their daughter scores none. These are the parents who blame the "ball hog" when their daughter is not being recruited.

Yes compare two top 5 programs vs High School B,C,D,E divisions. Sounds about right

Agree with this wholeheartedly. Colleges generally recruit the best athletes who typically can do many things for a team - between the 30s, ground balls, defense, draw controls, etc. not just goal scoring.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: High School Lax Girls - 04/01/16 01:20 PM

Why does everything come back to recruiting? That's why the game is being ruined. I don't hear this at volleyball where 1 girl will play in college or at soccer where maybe 2 or 3 will play in college. You nuts that have hijacked this sport make every decision based on recruitment and that just sucks for everyone else that shares a sideline or team with you.

Pass the ball because your teammate is open and that is the way the game is supposed to be played

People who understand the game can see past most ball hogs. We have a girl on our varsity team (no shes not my daughter) who just does all the work on the field, ground balls, face off controls, assists and great defense. While shes not scoring 4 or 5 goals a game she is by far the best player on the field. Just because you put your head down and go to goal every time and score 5 or 6 goals while taking 15 shots does not make you a superstar. Anybody who understands the sport can see that.

Lacrosse and Basketball are similar. Either teams spread it around and there is a lot of scoring. Or teams ride their 1 or 2 horses (ala LeBron James). The games are virtually similar, depending on the talent make-up. So you all should stop complaining.

That's why getting into the Books and studying will always be far more superior then LAX or Field Hockey...Like it or not lax mom and dad , that is the reality... sure life lessons and commitment comes with playing a sport BUT There's no pot of gold people when college is over! Wasted time and money and friendships lost through the years over a game that your child played at one time.. End result Spend that money on tutors and get more money for college!

A Junior from West Islip is an All American and she had 45 G & 38 A last year. I believe they played 22 games so that's a 2 goal a game average.

Pass the ball because your teammate is open and that is the way the game is supposed to be played


If you were in a hot bed of the other sports you would. lax is a hot sport hete so you hear it.

That girls happens to be a great two way player. That's why she was an all American. Next year when the other scorers are gone, she will be the go to girl. She will need to score a lot to keep west islip in games. Everyone will be bitching why she shoots to much.

A ton, really ? Then you have two tons of girls who did not AA starting and playing great as freshmen, and multiple time AA barely contributing. If you don't think its very,very political then you are clueless. I can tell you now who in sufffolk will get the AA.

Are you talking about the power conference that is NOT decided by school size or playoff divisions that are based on school enrollment?Conference A had zero girls make AA last year while conference B had 12 (4 GC. 5 MAN and 3 Wantagh) and conference C had 2 (both from CSH)

Nassau playoff grouping is a joke. Every year in B you give it to GC, Manhasset or last year Wantagh and in C CSH needs to win two games by about 20 goals in each game. Only A is competitive.

Regular season is much better where teams have the guts to ask in to the power division

How do you define doing more harm than good? Is it win/loss record? Strategy? Ability to motivate players? Willingness to "change it up" if their first strategy is not working?

In our district it would be all of the above and then some. Over the years our coach has proven time and time again that she does not have the ability to lead a team. Wins and Losses is only a part of the problem.

It's sad for all the girls who just want to play, the game has become over played and under coached.

CSH goalie put on an absolute show. 13 saves on 17 shots. Held GC to 1 goal until 6 minutes left. She was a huge difference maker. Draws were heavily in CSH's favor too - their draw girl was excellent.

I agree with the above response - GC was completely out coached. Why wouldn't you pull your goalie earlier after barely any saves? And what about face guarding the CSH played who had 3G, 4A and basically puts up half of CSH's points every game ? Makes no sense.

You are a moron , first to single out a kid to be pulled out of the game makes you look like a [lacrosse]. Second you scored 4 goals but you only talk as if the defense lost the game. Not going to win too many high school games if your offense plays like that.

Who said the defense lost the game? Outcoached is what I keep seeing. And I agree.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: High School Lax Girls - 04/08/16 04:31 PM
I don't think it was the GC goalies fault at all - I think it was the team in general was off and unfortunately the goalie was left with little help. I think of it as more of a mercy thing to give her a break at least. Definitely did not mean that in a negative way but I see how it could come off that way - I apologize. Both GC goalies are excellent, but yesterday was just an off day and CSH also has some very impressive shooters.

Agree with the offense comment - turning the ball over so often is putting way too much pressure on their D.

I'm looking forward to seeing how to GC- St. Ants game goes this weekend. I bet GC will come out flying.

And for the record I am from neither team - I was there watching friends kids play from both teams.

Stop shouting - it's ridiculous. And where does it say the defense was blamed? The poster blamed the coaches. I agree. And how did CR get involved in this?

What little respect I had for official stat keeping went right out the window today. I watched a girl get credit for an assist after she won a draw control, turn and pass to a girl at the restraining line, who ran 25 yards to the goal and scored.

The number of steps is irrelevant if the scorer didn't have to evade a defender.

if the shooter does not get any defensive pressure after receiving the pass she can run 100 yards and it is in fact an assist.

Taken directly From US LAcrosse website:

3. ASSIST: An assist is a play made by a player to her teammate who then scores a goal without having to evade excessive defensive pressure other than the goalkeeper. Only one assist per goal may be recorded.
The guideline to award an assist includes two parts: there must be a pass made to the recipient; and the recipient must take a shot. If the passer (potential assister) is able to move the ball to a teammate (recipient), who has maneuvered for a good or more advantageous position to take a shot, then the passer can be awarded with an assist. If the shooter, after receiving the ball from her teammate (passer/potential assister) must outrun or maneuver around any excessive defensive pressure before shooting, no assist can be awarded. It is not necessary for the shooter to possess the ball for a specific length of time, nor must the shooter limit the number of steps taken after she receives the ball for a shot. The only deciding factor, after the recipient receives a pass from her teammate, is the amount of pressure the recipient (shooter) had to evade to put her into a position for the shot, if any.

This is a very subjective topic based on opinion. What makes a great player? The ability to go to goal hard, heavy and usually successful....then a case can be made. Others may look for all around players, scrappiness, field vision....then you may disagree. In any event a very subjective topic open to opinion and best left alone.

Welcome to most teams. That's why many schools have zero talent after the top handful of girls. They don't spread the ball around when they are winning or losing big. The top girls are just there to pad the resumes for college since they got recruited with their club team, everyone else.... who cares

You just described both side of the WB-Islip game yesterday. Islip doesn't sub at all when they clearly should. Girls on the field have trouble catching and throwing. While on the other side, WB made subs but it wasn't for the girls that constantly shoot. It was for the 2nd level players on their team. When 2 girls account for 10 of your 18 goals, maybe sub them out instead of a girl that barely touches the ball?

What a bunch of losers ,stop talking about some 12 year old and how immature she is while you so called mature adults post about it on an anonymous forum. I always think its interesting that you are too cowardly to approach the parents of these kids you are so concerned about and have a discussion. What school district do you people live in that exposing your 7-8th grade daughters to some high school athletes is so traumatizing, if thats the case then maybe its time to move. I must be very fortunate because the athletes in our high school are some of the best role models around and have not heard of one bad incident while I have personally witnessed a lot of great moments of mentoring etc. Please let me know what district you all live in where the teams are essentially filled with adult content so I can skip that away game.

Actually you are just ignorant , most of the schools mentioned are not C , 3 are in the C division. That said the C division is clearly better and more competitive than the B division and probably better than than the A. Your comment just shows you have no clue .The really bad teams you are talking about are not in the C division.

You look foolish when you make these comments and are obviously jealous of the kids that have been moved up . Please tell us the B or A school that would be the clear favorite in the C.

Ok, how about this question. Besides BBP, does any of the other teams even have a chance of winning their conf? And if you say yes, we can get together and make a few bets. The only 2 clear favorite Cs are BBP and MS. I would take a dozen A and B against the rest of the Cs. So your 8th grader gets a goal in a 18-0 game and your all happy with yourself.

This will be a learning experience for this young 7th grader. She will learn that you don't go on a social media site, rip another girl apart and put your name on it. She will eventually learn that she should go on an anonymous site, rip into a girl and leave her name off of it, like the parents of the older girl are doing on here!

Just curious-what's the point of yellow cards besides playing down a player for 2 minutes? Is that the only penalty? Can a player get multiple yellows a game and keep playing? I attended a game this week and a player had 2, should have had 3, are they ever ejected or are there consequences for future? Thank you.

The player receiving a card must leave the field and enter the penalty area
for two minutes (yellow) or four minutes (red) of elapsed playing time, which will carry
over to the second half or overtime if necessary. No substitute may take her place. No
player on the penalized team must be moved 4m behind.

If a player receives two Yellow Cards they are not allowed to return into the game. If a player receives a Red card they are out for the remainder of the game plus the next contest.

Should a team receive its fourth card (yellow or red) of the game they
will play short below the restraining lines for the remainder of that game, including
overtime, and an additional player will be removed from the game and enter the
penalty area for each subsequent card received. The carded player will serve the
entire two or four-minute penalty time. When the penalty time expires, she may return
to the game only if she has not been suspended (second yellow card) or ejected (red
card) and only if another player leaves the field using normal substitution procedures

Section 28. At any time during the game, at the official’s discretion, time out may be called to inspect any crosse in use on the field. This does not include the sticks of players
standing in the substitution box or on the sideline. The official shall also inspect the pocket of any player’s crosse upon request of the opposing Head coach or any opposing player
on the field. The request must include the player’s number. Each team will be allowed two stick check requests per game.

a. Should the crosse meet specifications, the game shall be re-started by the ball being given to the player who was in possession of the ball, or closest to the ball if there was no possession, when time out was called.
b. Should the crosse not meet specifications, it shall be removed from the game by the official and placed at the scorer’s table for the remainder of the half. Personnel
from the team may come to the table to fix/adjust the stick but the stick may not be removed from that area. Any crosse not meeting specifications may be re-inspected (at half time or before any overtime period) by the official for use
in the second half or overtime period. After the removal of a crosse not meeting specifications, the game shall be re-started with a free position to the opponent nearest the ball when play was stopped. If the illegal crosse is an offsetting foul, alternate possession will be awarded. The team requesting the stick check will not
lose any of its two allowable requests if the crosse is found to be illegal.
c. In the event that a goal was scored with a crosse that does not meet specifications, the
goal shall not count, the crosse shall be removed, and play shall be resumed with a free position at the center line. Player positioning for the draw shall apply. Once the game is
restarted with the draw, the goal shall stand.
d. If after a goal is scored and before the game is restarted with the draw, any player other than the shooter is found to have a crosse not meeting specifications, the
goal shall stand, and a free position will be taken at the center by the opposing team.

One more explanation from US Lacrosse

Obstruction of the Free Space to Goal (shooting space):

NOTE: This call should be made only if the player with the ball has the opportunity to and is looking to shoot.

Obstruction of the Free Space to Goal (shooting space): with any part of her
body guard the goal outside the goal circle so as to obstruct the free space to
goal, between the ball and the goal circle, which denies the attack the opportunity
to shoot safely and encourages shooting at a player. The Obstruction of the Free
Space to Goal rule is in effect when the ball is within the critical scoring area and
above the goal line extended.
1. This positioning applies only if initiated by the defender and not if she is drawn
into the free space to goal by an attacking player.
2. This positioning applies to a defender not marking an attack player within a
stick’s length.
NOTE: This call should be made only if the player with the ball has the opportunity
to and is looking to shoot.

That is correct, and there are a few more examples in the book. Point is attacker has to be attempting to shoot. Too often see it called with just passing ball around. Rules are very clear and easy to understand, not sure why it is so confusing to some officials.

Again you just show yourself to be ignorant but which B team would be the clear favorite to win the C if you take BBP and Sinai out . You would take a dozen , just shows you are so ignorant and have no clue . I will be waiting for your idiot response but don't forget to name some teams that would be the clear cut favorite over the rest of the C division .

Make it easy for this guy who obviously knows little about lacrosse . Just list the 3 B teams that would be such overwhelming favorites in the C division taking BBP , Mt. Sinai out of the equation . Or just tell us the top two teams this year in the B .

Well the twitter world and IG world is quite small. Don't think the rest of LI doesn't' see what is going on from Sayville? It is a bit over the top. Self serving and oh I don't know, crappy. Im probably at least 40 miles away, and know way more about Sayville than what is 3 miles from me.

Don'[t think others don't see it we do.

Huntington is falling apart from injuries!! we have more downed starters and non starters that we should have at a seasons start. FYI to the coaches....... YOU must use your bench or you will have a full on busted team. You must have trust that the team you compiled can get the job done and not rely on ONE girl to score every goal. Its really humiliating at this point.

No dog in this fight but it seems that the goal was scored and in the post goal celebration the strings on the stick may have been " checked" by the goal scorer. I believe if the opposing team had requested a stick check and then that occurred prior to the refs getting the stick it is the correct call. They really should go to the college rules that the player has to drop their stick after each goal.

I assume if they are hurting from so many injuries (like you said) they must be already pretty deep in the bench. If at this point your daughter isn't playing and they are riddled with injuries, I would doubt your daughter is going to get much action as she must be very low on the totem pole. Maybe some of the injured players will get back soon and Huntington will get back on track, although that wont help the playing time for your daughter.

I think in this case that's obvious. The worst part is that she's not a stud player. She's a good player for a 7th grader, but not varsity caliber.

Islip has been a stat padding team for years, if I remember correctly they were being killed a few years ago for running it up against the weak teams. Got to say the sisters picked the right school as SB and that coach love to humiliate the lesser teams leaving their stars in the game to get grotesque numbers to try and get on the watch list. Now you have the high school coaches letting kids get 15 points in blowouts against weak teams so they can go after the AA award.

Connetquot and Plainedge also won big yesterday. Connetquot spread the ball around with 8 goal scorers and no girl with more than 3 goals at least that's trying to play nice with Copaigue who is always overmatched. Good for the coaches who know after the first 2 minutes that the game is won and makes adjustments quickly

Her sister is an absolute monster on a top 10 D1 team. She looks to be a very similar player. You're being pity and jealous.

Islip has and will get pounded by any decent team. let them pad the stats all they want. It only means something when it is accomplished against the better teams. Until that happens its not worth talking about.

Grandaughter plays on a nassau team put in a low conference this year and coach pulls starters out as soon as they are up by 10, does not allow anyone to have more than 5 total points (selfish player/pet excluded) and while it is frustrating to watch I find it terrible to see other coaches allowing their team to stat pad.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: High School Lax Girls - 04/12/16 05:56 PM
Good players who are stat padders are usually in weaker divisions and pad their stats against lesser competition to over compensate for their teams weak divisional placement. Nobody likes or respects players who are just there for themselves. #Pass the ball

so let me get this straight.. the head Football coach pushed for his daughter to be on Varsity, she is trashing the team with scrappy language on social media???

wow! suddenly I feel so much better about the issues on my daughters team. they're like a bunch of alter girls compared with that stuff. that sounds horrible.


7th graders. And, yes, I agree.

Kid must have a set of she thinks she's good enough to call out an older girl on the team. Coach should send her back to the MS team.


Are you kidding me... Was the girl right? That is the only question.. Who cares the age! Idk if 7 or 12 if a girl needs to be called out then do so... A true born leader of it was even semi warrented

It was a bunch of disparaging remarks about the teams captain. Spoiled little brat calling the older girl names and stating that the older girl had no skill using very choice language via social media. Huge distraction and has caused major rifts between other players. Girl should be completely removed but father is football coach and AD won't let that happen. No leader at all, a self entitled attitude.

Her sister is an absolute monster on a top 10 D1 team. She looks to be a very similar player. You're being pity and jealous.


Pathetic and jealous, happened to see the sister at Stony Brook vs stanford score 4/5 goals with a bunch of assists. Guess daddy wants his daughter to lead in points and yesterday did not help. The kid is a player stop criticizing kids dad.

Nope just an entitled spoiled brat enabled by the threats of her father. The coaches (both of them), are lemmings. Holy roller fakes.

Middle Country: high powered offense and coaching advantage.

West Islip: More talent.

Toss up between Sachem East and WM: neither team competitive. Edge goes to WM, more depth.

1. West Islip. Over the past two years they are 40 - 4 with a State Championship. Good coaching and a winning attitude will take them far. Strong leadership. Coaches and players expect to win.

2. Middle Country. Will compete but last year might have been their year. 18 - 1 last year and combined 29 - 7 over the past two years. I think they will be in the mix. Maybe they play with a chip on their shoulder. Are they hungry after last year?

3. Northport. 24 - 12 over the past two seasons. Coaching and tradition will keep them competitive. Not sure the horses are there to win the county but you never know. Usually play with a lot of attitude and emotion. Combine that with being well prepared for big games and they can surprise.

4/5. Toss up Smithtown East / Smithtown West. West is 24 - 10 while East is
23 - 11. the last two seasons. Not sure either team has the depth to challenge the top teams.

6. Ward Melville. 19 - 14 past two years. Historically will make playoffs and then lose to a team that they had beaten during the year. Better than .500 but can't see them winning.

Not sure if anyone else has a shot. Sachem East?

Good luck to all.



On the money so far.

I don't believe Middle Country is a better coached team than Smithtown East! Middle Country was lucky to get out of there with a win yesterday. Definitely not the better team! West Islip will repeat as county champs!

Great to see Wantagh vs Mt Sinai. You should always play tough non league games. I see Wantagh also plays West Islip and Suffern. I also saw they are playing Ridgewood, NJ who might be the best team in NJ this Saturday at Cold Spring Harbor. That is one tough non league slate

Now do you believe Mt. sinia is overrated. They would be around a 500 team if they played in the Nassau conference. I'm actually surprised they agreed to this game, as they never like to face any real teams.

I arrived early last night and watched the college game that preceded Wantagh vs Mt.Sinai. If you think the head of the Nassau referee's struggles to keep up with high school girls you should have seen him in a college game. You know he will select himself for all of the LI championship games again. Best of luck! Honest question is there a mandatory retirement age for referees?

Don't let some moron get under your skin. You also forgot they play St. Anthony last year so his comment was that of a jealous loser .Honestly Mt.Sinai did not play their best game last night turning the ball over too many times and Wantaugh goalie played well. Many teams have an off night. Lets see Syosset beat CSH, CSH beat Garden City, West Hampton beat Syosset , West Hampton has multiple losses in D2 suffolk, can't take too much away from any 1 game , there are a lot of good teams in Nassau and Suffolk that can beat each other on any night.

First, it is spelled Wantagh and they are a good team with senior leadership. Mt Sinai is a young team and it is hard to replace last year's seniors. Yes, the Wantagh goalie played well but no better than the Mt Sinai goalie. She made some point blank saves to keep the score close as well. Always great to see out of conference games like that. I am sure it was a learning experience for both programs. Trust me, both these programs only care about where they finish at the end of the year.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: High School Lax Girls - 04/14/16 03:46 PM
Did the wantagh goalie score 11 goals? Did the wantagh goalie get 75% of the draws? Maybe mt sinai had alot of turnovers because the other team was pretty good. Off night, c'mon...your better than that. If not for mt sinai's goalie, could have been a 15-7 game.

This is true but not every coach allows it. If you look at box scores you will see some schools have 10 players score as coaches take starters off instead of allowing complete blowouts. There will always be selfish players but shame on the coaches that allow a blowout

Syosset win was a fluke, so really can't put much into a West Hampton win over them. Csh and Gc two very good teams, both of them would beat West Hampton by 12+ every time they play

Take it easy Dad, I like that. I think some of the LI teams are going to be surprised this weekend by some of the outcomes. LI is far from dominant anymore. It is not as easy anymore just walking on the field and playing subs after halftime.

The CHSAA has 2 decent teams this year. St Anthony's hasn't been the same since their former coach retired. They are surviving on reputation only.

Would they beat Syossett by 12 every time they play them. So yes your statement is ignorant.

Sportsmanship and CR are rarely mentioned in the same sentence. Does she have the biggest club? Yes. Does she poach? Yes. Do they win some games by a ton and never back off the gas? Yes. Are they known for bending the rules and being the most physical? Yes. Are her parents some of the worst in the game? Yes. Does she charge for everything from extra training camps BBQ's bus trips and everything else to shake down parents? Yes. Does she double dip off her own players with her tournament circuit? Yes. Does she get her kids recruited no matter what? Yes

Sad thing is that many parents ignore the entire list all because of the last point

1. West Islip. Over the past two years they are 40 - 4 with a State Championship. Good coaching and a winning attitude will take them far. Strong leadership. Coaches and players expect to win.

2. Middle Country. Will compete but last year might have been their year. 18 - 1 last year and combined 29 - 7 over the past two years. I think they will be in the mix. Maybe they play with a chip on their shoulder. Are they hungry after last year?

3. Northport. 24 - 12 over the past two seasons. Coaching and tradition will keep them competitive. Not sure the horses are there to win the county but you never know. Usually play with a lot of attitude and emotion. Combine that with being well prepared for big games and they can surprise.

4/5. Toss up Smithtown East / Smithtown West. West is 24 - 10 while East is
23 - 11. the last two seasons. Not sure either team has the depth to challenge the top teams.

6. Ward Melville. 19 - 14 past two years. Historically will make playoffs and then lose to a team that they had beaten during the year. Better than .500 but can't see them winning.

Not sure if anyone else has a shot. Sachem East?

Good luck to all.



On the money so far.



Playoffs should be interesting but I think in the end it will be :

Northport
Middle Country
West Islip
Smithtown West

Maybe Smithtown East can knock somebody off but I don't see anyone else out there.

Those four teams also have the toughest schedules down the stretch to help prepare them for the playoffs.


Posted By: Anonymous Re: High School Lax Girls - 04/15/16 02:04 PM
I don't know what is more comical. The fact that Northport took a victory lap after the game as if they ended West Islip season. You forget lost 3 games last year and still came away the state champs. So those fake rings that you all were on the bus and then snapped chatted them, I would hold onto those if I were you because those are about the only ones that you're going to get

Sad thing is you think she poaches players when these kids are leaving their club and coming to YJ because of the last point and they want to be on a top club team that offers all the off season stuff even if at a price.She does not need to poach as the best players want to play YJ.

Wow, someone is bitter...how about you sit back and let the Northport girls enjoy their moment, even if it is just a moment. There are far worse things those girls could be doing than a little celebration of beating a great team on their bus. Chill out. Your life shouldn't be defined by your daughter's lax team.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: High School Lax Girls - 04/15/16 03:05 PM
Not the original poster but here's my take on the situation. The problem with CR is not that she has a winning team or a winning program with yellow jackets. The problem is the way she handles her team. I Northport girls yesterday played with no class. They laughed coming off the field when They got a yellow card Or another one throwing their stick and acting like a poor sport. Your girls obviously have talent but it's overshadowed by their behavior and it's a shame

There is absolutely a history of backroom deals with players and coaches that when executed weaken other clubs. Brilliant business but don't think it doesn't happen. And then she always takes credit for the commit even when the skill was taught elsewhere

take it easy Dad, they are not going to break a sweat playing the #3 team from Jersey. probly be emptying the bench in the first half of that tilt.


Take it easy Dad, I like that. I think some of the LI teams are going to be surprised this weekend by some of the outcomes. LI is far from dominant anymore. It is not as easy anymore just walking on the field and playing subs after halftime.

well thanks for the predictions there Jimmy the Greek. but don't wager all your dough on that. you will need lots for toll money back to NJ...

Smithtown West no doubt very very strong team this year. I wouldn't say West Islip is nowhere near the team they were last year. They returned most of their girls and last year had three losses. They lost one game so far. And Northport Let's face it. Nobody really cares for them LOL

A player's ability is so much more than numbers. Half of the assists are never recorded for players so stats are always questionable, and field vision, setting picks, communication, off ball movement, leadership....none of those make it into the stats. It's not all about going to goal. That's PAL.

I am not even from BBP, and the Best Midfielder in the County according to USA today's preseason pre-view plays for BBP. I don't think there is a better all around, well rounded, more mature player. Including from a leadership standpoint, an experience standpoint. No slight to any of the the other players out there there are some really great ones, and I would bet that if you polled the top players themselves they would probably overwhelmingly vote for her.

I agree as I am the poster who originally said she was the best Eddie and I am from Nassau. She does everything well and does not need to score to impact the game. In my opinion the best player from our area.

I hope these two meet again. Yes, Northport you don't have much class and I am not from either town my daughter plays on another suffolk div 1 team I went to check out the game.

Comments like this are an absolute joke. These people approach her ,she does not approach them. You are obviously talking about the daddy coach who made the deal so his kids would be on the top team because they were not obvious selections for such, they were not poached . The skill comment is such a joke , first if you think its all about the skill and that why they have committed than what club they play for is not relevant, second if you truly believe the club is responsible for teaching these kids their ability you are just a dope.

You all really need to get a grip. First off the USA today thing is a political joke . To say anyone is the best midfielder in the country is just pompous and ridiculous. Kid is a great player and so are many others and yes there are some that are her equal.Everything is so subjective that to say anyone of them is the best player is ridiculous. Have played against her and her YJ teammates many times and would tell you that on that team any of 5 kids including the goalie have been the best player on the field that day. I would also be willing to bet that everyone of those kids have just as much of the intangibles you speak of .Have done scouting for our High School team for 10 years plus and have not seen the kid who is the clear best player in any year, they all have weaknesses and there are many who could have the one of the best label so give it a rest.

There are three or four teams who have a realistic chance. Not up for grabs at all, most teams have no chance.

Northport, Smithtown West, Middle Country, West Islip.

Sorry it is a sore topic for you, but you are obviously personally vested thus not able to objectively comment on this. But in reality it really doesn't matter as there are probably 3-4 girls close to her level and maybe your right. But, regardless it is just speculation and subjective speculation at that, as lacrosse is a team sport so we can't line them up 1 on 1.

Whether or not your daughter is one of the top ones, I don't know, maybe she is and good for her, and either way I would bet she probably put a ton of time and effort into the pursuit (just from how passionate you sound). But the scouting thing is kind of funny. But the scouting thing makes you sound a little nerdy kind a like a tool, so maybe you should drop that.

A 4 goal win is a smack down?? How about BBP winning 16-8? That is a smack down.

Summit over ESM 7-6. ESM held the ball for 12 minutes in the second half playing stall ball. Good game, the better team won.

take it easy Dad, they are not going to break a sweat playing the #3 team from Jersey. probly be emptying the bench in the first half of that tilt.


Take it easy Dad, I like that. I think some of the LI teams are going to be surprised this weekend by some of the outcomes. LI is far from dominant anymore. It is not as easy anymore just walking on the field and playing subs after halftime. I can assure you Summit, Ridgewood, Oak Knoll and Moorestown are no pushovers and I doubt they will be going home 0 for 4...IMHO


well thanks for the predictions there Jimmy the Greek. but don't wager all your dough on that. you will need lots for toll money back to NJ...


interesting day today...except for Wantagh who pretty easily handled Ridgewood it looks like Garden City beat Moorestown in OT and Summit beat ESM. I saw Oak Knoll beating St Anthony's 8 to 3 at half...not a bad day for NJ

No stall. ESM possessed the ball and made numerous shots. Defense on the other team was good but unable to get a turnover until 9-10 minutes passed. Give credit to Summits defense because they did a great job. They are the reason they won that game. It was a good game and close until the very end.

It was a great game. Evenly matched teams - Both team's defense played great. Summit held to just 7 goals.

I guess your daughter isn't on that list, don't be so jealous. It's ugly and it probably impacts your ability to "scout". Lol, a scout, that's the funniest part.


If you don't think that some teams are out there scouting their competition it just tells me you have no clue. My daughter is in 3rd grade so no she is not the "top middie" in the country but I will tell you I am making sure she can use both hands as I would not want that to be an issue. My point is to nominate someone the best middie in the country is ridiculous , its the same way I feel about the newsday stat leaders thing .

And more importantly it was for a great cause. It's really nice to see how teams from other areas match up against each other. Everyone should benefit from a day like this.

This goes on in most varsity sports in GC. It's rampant in football baseball and lax on the boys side for just the reasons said here. On the girls side it exists too but Instead of the father/son thing it's the sister and field hockey favorites thing. Its out of control.

Is it true the girl from Oak Knoll tore her ACL at the end of the game? If so, a shame. She played a great game and was a standout.

Heard that is the case but don't want to pass rumors around (heard from a very good source). Great player, maybe the best in NJ as a junior, committed to Stanford. Ranked by Inside Lacrosse as a top 25 soph last year. Scored over 100 goals last year as a sophomore, 50 her freshman year. Really too bad all the way around.

Could someone tell me how an injury might impact a committed player? Is the player obligated to disclose that to the coach?

This happened to Shelby F. from Babylon a few years ago, almost identical situation. She was committed to Northwestern. Shelby made a full recovery and maybe even better than before injury. Starting for NW as well.

I was looking it up online and it looks like there will be three teams chosen. Is it a waste of time if you don't make the first team? How many girls tried out? Are the teams chosen usually competitive in the tournament? Any information about this is appreciated.

Not what it used to be, many of the top players do not attend. If your daughter enjoys competing and her schedule is not too full have her play. There is so much lacrosse these days I worry about burnout. If your daughter in not committed and wants to play in college it is worth going. Good event if you have the time and your daughter is not spread to thin.

Again you show your ignorance , you act as if going to watch your competition play is the equal of some loser who comes onto a site anonymously to declare his love for some high school player like you have done .Your obsession with this one kid is a little creepy. That said I will concede so you feel better , the player you speak of is head and shoulders above anyone else including but not limited to the WI, Islip, Sachem East, Mattituck, Garden City, Manhasset, ESM, Wantagh, West Babylon, Smithtown( both east and west) Middle country players.

Parents love having their kids on this and all select teams to build their kids resumes and so they can post more pictures on facebook in different uniforms. When anyone can recommend you to tryout money is usually involved

Heard from others players will be notified by email. Also last year if i remember correctly was posted on Long Island Metropolitan Lacrosse website.

Good solid competition, especially in the top 2 Divisions. LI metro will place 2 teams (1&2) in top division which will compete for the overall championship and team 3 will play in the 2nd division. A lot of coaches, yes, but believe some are there just to watch their recruits as most girls ( all 3 teams from LI) that participate are committed. I believe we were notified about team placement mid week

It is a great honor to make and play for any of the three LI teams. The completion is really good. this is a must go if picked. no way a money grab, all the costs are reasonable

players on team 1 are usually the same players selected for Under Armour.

we played at Lehigh last year which gave us the opportunity to go watch the NCAA final four games in philly over the same weekend.

That said I will concede so you feel better , the player you speak of is head and shoulders above anyone else including but not limited to the WI, Islip, Sachem East, Mattituck, Garden City, Manhasset, ESM, Wantagh, West Babylon, Smithtown( both east and west) Middle country players.


You said that YOU were a scout. That is creepy. Never addressed any player specifically, just laughing at your assertion that you were advance scouting for the team...and it is so laughable.


Again the only thing laughable is your ignorance , would it make you feel better to say I watch other teams games prior to playing them so our team has an idea of what to expect. Sometimes we even give the other teams advance notice that we will be filming them , you probably find that hilarious also. Now stop obsessing over one kid Mr. Creepy.

Smithtown East vs West today, should be a good one. East needs the victory if they want to stay in the hunt.

You are right it is difficult to gauge at the start of the season who the bottom teams are in the power conference versus the top teams just outside the power conference. However, with that being said Port Washington is probably the best non power conference team right now with Seaford, South Side and maybe Plainedge in the mix.

Port Washington has one loss on the year and it is to Long Beach who is probably the 6th or 7th team in the power conference. Port also beat both Seaford and Plainedge this year. South Side will play Farmingdale later this year and they are probably the 7th team in the power conference. So at this time based upon some small results it looks like they got it fairly right.

They may have got the power conference pretty close but after that it is a joke. PW, SS, Plainedge, Seaford, Lynbrook and maybe Oyster Bay should play in a conference with Massapequa and Oceanside.

Look at the stat leaders except for the CSH player all the rest are from low divisions teams that are beating up on people. Get stats in the power conference and it means something

Agreed, and having seen some of these games there are a few teams that have girls who have no idea what the word pass means-its go to the goal regardless of who is open, and the majority of the time they miss the cage. Coach allows it, not helping to develop the game and everyone looks silly.

Port Washington is probably the best of the rest right now...they will get their chance in the "A" playoffs. If they belong in the power conference they will win the "A"'s or at least make the finals.

She'll be expelled or rebelled against by then. Can't continue to behave the way she does and continue to get away with it. Even girls on her travel team are not surprised considering the way she marginalizes many of her teammates there as well. Major attitude adjustment needed. And parents play like they are so nice at the events.

Been watching you go on and on with this topic and can't figure out which is more disturbing, your inability to stop singling out a specific 12 year old girl over and over, or your apparent obsession with her parents. Either way, pull up your pants, your ugly is showing.

So west islip handed smithtown west their first loss today.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: High School Lax Girls - 04/21/16 11:34 PM
So, I need to call out Sacred Heart for dirty play. Playing St. Johns yesterday they took out one of our better players with slash to the face which needed stitches. Heard later on they also took out Kellenberg's best player two weeks ago with a cross check to the neck. Yellow cards get issued but the damage is done, and they go on to win the game against teams who are now without their strongest players. Once may be an accident, but twice is a pattern. Is that really how you want to win Sacred Heart? Win on your merits not by, literally, knocking out good players from games. Is it really worth that? Our player will now have a scar on her face because you can't play clean. Blame the SHA coaches for coaching them to do this, refs for letting it get out of hand , and certainly varsity players who should know better.

First and most important, I hope the child is ok.

Wow this parent accusing sacred heart of slashing a player is crazy. It was a good competitive game. Sacred heart only won by one and the remaining girls played well together. Only a parent of the injured girl would assume she was singled out and that she made all the difference. Lax is a team sport.

your point actually supports the original poster. Maybe the game was so close that SHA felt the need to resort to this. They won by one goal only after a talented player was knocked out of the game.

Refs are horrible in handing out reds and the sport should go to cumulative fouls and you are out of game like basketball. Northport and YJ's are infamous for turning out hatchet players. Start throwing them out of games and stop the endless whistles

outside looking in....
North Babylon 2-3-0 3-4-0 103.760


the top 4 teams are beating each other up should be interesting


Suffolk really needs to go to some sort of power conference (like nassau)

West Islip, Northport, Middle Country, Smithtown East, Smithtown West, Mt. Sinai, BBP, ESM all would be a good start.

I don't think you will find a super B league is the right move. If you look at last year's B playoffs you will see teams like Division, Plainedge...etc. get beaten by 10+ goals by the power conference B teams and they had good records coming into the playoffs. I agree on the A teams..it is by far the weakest conference in Nassau County. The C's are even weaker except for CSH, who will walk to the county title yet again.

There was one last year (and previous years). Not sure why the decision was made to lump all the teams not in power conference into A, B, C. Dumb!!! Those teams deserve better.

If I may rant for a minuet. Recently, on both the boys and girls high school threads, I have seen comments to people {being anonymous we don't know the ages or profession of anyone} about attending H.S. games. In some situations an attendee either didn't have a child on either team, or stayed at a tournament longer than some felt appropriate to watch other teams play, or traveled a distance some would see as too far, or voided a game for "scouting" purposes. These people were vilified by others, and even called derogatory names for watching a sport the love. Why is it only lacrosse parents do this. If someone went to watch a football game, or a basketball game between two good teams no one would care or say a word. Who are these parents to hijack a public sporting event and slander people for loving a sport. Are they the same people that complain that Lacrosse isn't popular enough and should receive more attention, while excluding anyone without a direct interest in any particular game. Shame on you for calling someone a "perv" or a "loser" for watching a game they love. I bet you're the same person making March Madness brackets at your office, does that also make you a
"perv" or a "loser" for watching that sport with no child involved. Maybe if we welcomed people into watch our children play the sport we all love it will grow and become bigger, instead of pointing fingers at people and calling fans names.

True. I was involved in a basketball forum for a while and those heavy hitters went to every game they could, happily reported back on the forum, and were not villified. In fact, people looked for their opinions on future matchups because these guys (women? IDK) had seen all the teams in action.

Leave the super conference alone but put the next group into the next division at least for the regular season. Let SS and Plainedge, Divison Lynbrook and others battle during the season. These games of winning by 15 just so you can get your name in newsday is a waste especially when they will be unprepared to play a Wantagh, Sett or GC in the 1st or 2nd round come playoff time. CSH could play their 3rd stringers in the C playoffs and still win because they have played a wicked regular season schedule

Agreed and perfectly stated. People are so quick to judge. Moderators, is there any way to post this on the Boys HS Thread and the Chaminade thread where I believe this was also an issue where ppl were torn apart for being fans/spectators at the games and reported back on a game or two.

I understand the point but there was also a point to those responding - if you were at Staples last week it was for a reason. Not just a weekend drive as a spectator to see a game. I am all for seeing a game that is nearbye, but the travel and traffic to staples is a bit much for just watching a game as a fan.

Wantagh 7 0 0 10 1 0

Garden City 4 1 0 8 1 0
Cold Spring Harbor 4 2 0 7 3 0

Syosset 1 5 0 2 6 0
Oceanside 0 6 0 4 6 0

Top 4 are cream of the crop the remainder of the division is no better than Port Washington, South Side, Plainedge, Lynbrook, Seaford and maybe Oyster Bay and Mac Arthur. Any given year the remaining six "super conference" schools and those that I have just mentioned are all on par with each other. Farmingdale hasn't been a power in years in Nassau they play in the weakest (A) of the A B and C schools when comes to playoffs that's a fact. Wantagh, GC, Manhassett and CSH are a cut above all. Exclude those 4 and than look at the scores of the remaining 6 and the teams that I have mentioned any given winner and day fact.TW from Fdale would like to have all of you believe otherwise. So in a nut shell those schools out of the "super conference" play who they are scheduled against and hopefully the school or coach schedules tougher out of conference games. So to make the Newsday comment is uncalled for, there a multitude of good teams with some very talented players on them doing what they do. You see Spallina pulling Murphy out of the game against UMass Lowell "you play who is in front of you". Have at it folks, cant wait for the replies.

Top 4 are cream of the crop the remainder of the division is no better than Port Washington, South Side, Plainedge, Lynbrook, Seaford and maybe Oyster Bay and Mac Arthur. Any given year the remaining six "super conference" schools and those that I have just mentioned are all on par with each other. Farmingdale hasn't been a power in years in Nassau they play in the weakest (A) of the A B and C schools when comes to playoffs that's a fact. Wantagh, GC, Manhassett and CSH are a cut above all. Exclude those 4 and than look at the scores of the remaining 6 and the teams that I have mentioned any given winner and day fact.TW from Fdale would like to have all of you believe otherwise. So in a nut shell those schools out of the "super conference" play who they are scheduled against and hopefully the school or coach schedules tougher out of conference games. So to make the Newsday comment is uncalled for, there a multitude of good teams with some very talented players on them doing what they do. You see Spallina pulling Murphy out of the game against UMass Lowell "you play who is in front of you". Have at it folks, cant wait for the replies.


And keep in mind not every coach allows starters to stay in and run up the score! It's clear that many do but some coaches actually put their 2nd and third string in when up by 10

I don't think you will find a super B league is the right move. If you look at last year's B playoffs you will see teams like Division, Plainedge...etc. get beaten by 10+ goals by the power conference B teams and they had good records coming into the playoffs. I agree on the A teams..it is by far the weakest conference in Nassau County. The C's are even weaker except for CSH, who will walk to the county title yet again.



Leave the super conference alone but put the next group into the next division at least for the regular season. Let SS and Plainedge, Divison Lynbrook and others battle during the season. These games of winning by 15 just so you can get your name in newsday is a waste especially when they will be unprepared to play a Wantagh, Sett or GC in the 1st or 2nd round come playoff time. CSH could play their 3rd stringers in the C playoffs and still win because they have played a wicked regular season schedule

Stop with your super conference non-sense
Wantagh 7 0 0 10 1 0
Manhasset 5 0 0 7 0 0
Garden City 4 1 0 8 1 0
Cold Spring Harbor 4 2 0 7 3 0

So the coach who is down by 10 but has one of those players with 8 or so points should pull that player also..... my point damn if you do damn if you don't, this argument can go either way....

Many of these high school coaches need to have their heads examined. Leaving girls in during a blowout is counterproductive. Less experienced girls could be playing and getting quality game time experience. Girls that have nagging injuries should be taken out when games are out of hand. Maybe even sit a player with an injury when you're playing a team you know you will beat. Too many teams around the island are playing their best players full games for no other reason then to pad stats. Same goes for girls on the losing side of a blowout. If your best player has 8 goals and you're down 10, why play her anymore? You're not going to catch up and you can have other girls get some experience. You don't have to be a coach to see that things need to change at the high school level. There are no scouts coming to any of these games. College coaches do not care that your daughter got 9 goals against the worst team in your division.

Very rare to be down by 10 but have a kid w 8 points so that seems like a silly point.

If you are down by 10 and 1 girl has 8, it's probably because the coach has supported a one man team which is easy to defend and that's why you are down by 10. Team game folks, nobody cares that your kid is in Newsday except you

Yea our district its a battle between 3- 4 girls to shove the ball in the cage to get those Stats. Regardless if the coaches pet forces the ball numerous amounts of time and other girls are literally wide open ALONE by the crease , most good teams know the System of who's who , and make sure that ball hogging stat grabbing player gets shut down , Just think for once if the coach actually had a set of balls and made some changes on how that superstar moves the ball other then her few side kicks.. He would actually have a Great team not an inconsistent one !

Doesn't all county go to the girl with the most points, or if it's a tie the senior? Do yellow cards play into the selection? Do other coaches have a say or is it fixed? Also who decides on All American? Are the recipients all from top teams and does it depend on record? Sorry for so many questions but figured I would ask the experts. wink

The number and level of the end of the year awards:
All County, All League,are first based on team W/L record (if your team stinks, you're not making all county no matter how good you are)
second criteria would be how much weight does your team's coach have in the coaches association (a long term coaches, who have won county and state titles, have a greater say on who gets what and do more for their players than the math teacher who coaches the girls lax team for a few seasons)

How the mighty have fallen, The traditional powerhouse D1 teams of Farmingdale, Massapequa, Syosset and Oceanside have fallen to the bottom of the division (Farmingdale is the most surprising) while the old D2/B schools Wantagh, Manhasset, GC and D3/C CSH are doing great.

Don't get your hopes up.. Sometimes a player who isn't even "deserved" on their own team by their own teammates wins a county award bizarre and political. and don't forget when a family member is a coach, AD or the cockamamie position of Athletic Chair.

Suffolk A is hard to call at this point but it looks like one of the four favorites will win it.

Smithtown West, Middle Country, West Islip and Northport will battle it out for the county championship. Who will the Suffolk A winner face from Nassau in the Long Island Championship?

I'm gonna go off on a Maryland High School rant. Outside of Maryland, does anyone know about the level of play here in Anne Arundel county Maryland, the Annapolis area? It is very high if you do not know, on par with the LI scene. Well, here in AACo, there is a school named Severna Park. Their girls team has a lot of state championships, because they are good and...seem to get preferential treatment. I know it happens everywhere, to a lot of teams, but that doesn't make it right. Their biggest rival on a local level and state level is South River, another powerful program. Well, last Friday night, Severna Park beat South River 14-9. Close, very competitive game. Tied several times, with runs by each team. Severna Park played great as usual, and South River was no push-over. But, here is where I have a problem: the refs. South River received two YC's...one legit and one a complete freakin' mystery. On those two YC's, Severna Park scored 7 goals, to their credit. They took advantage of the cards. But, they seemed to play as aggressively or more aggressively as South River did, and received no YC's, even though they hit one of the South River players in the nose with a stick hard enough to bloody her nose enough to stop play. How did the "refs" miss that, especially with evidence staring them in the face? And, a left-handed South River player was moving the ball down the left sideline near midfield, with a right-handed Severna Park trailing her, on the right shoulder of the South River player. The Severna Park reached across the front of the South River player to check the ball. She did it, close enough to almost hit the South River player in the face, and knocked the ball out of bounds. The "ref" awarded the ball to Severna Park. It happened right in front of the stands and when the fans yelled at the "ref" she turned around and admonished the fans. These fans are VERY knowledgable lax fans, and they all knew it should've been an infraction. The second YC is a mystery too. A South River player was shadowing a Severna Park across the middle of the field, both barely jogging. "Ref" blows whistle and call YC on South River. Nobody knew why. When the "ref" was asked what the call was, he said he saw the South River player touch the butt of the stick of the Severna Park player with her stick. Huh? Man, I know it's technically a foul, but a YC?! And, if it's really a YC, EVERY play down the field would have a YC called because I guarantee that the butt end of every stick gets touched on every play.
The bottom line is, Severna Park is "that" school here in AACo and ALL of the other schools can't figure out why. They're not the most affluent, or the prettiest area, or anything. Just a regular suburban area. The game last Friday was the last straw as far as I'm concerned. Anyone else experience crap like this? Thanks for listening.

The "ref" awarded the ball to Severna Park. It happened right in front of the stands and when the fans yelled at the "ref" she turned around and admonished the fans. These fans are VERY knowledgable lax fans, and they all knew it should've been an infraction. The second YC is a mystery too. A South River player was shadowing a Severna Park across the middle of the field, both barely jogging. "Ref" blows whistle and call YC on South River. Nobody knew why. When the "ref" was asked what the call was, he said he saw the South River player touch the butt of the stick of the Severna Park player with her stick. Huh? Man, I know it's technically a foul, but a YC?! And, if it's really a YC, EVERY play down the field would have a YC called because I guarantee that the butt end of every stick gets touched on every play.
The bottom line is, Severna Park is "that" school here in AACo and ALL of the other schools can't figure out why. They're not the most affluent, or the prettiest area, or anything. Just a regular suburban area. The game last Friday was the last straw as far as I'm concerned. Anyone else experience crap like this? Thanks for listening.



I want to add and make it clear that I have zero issues with the way Severna park played. They are very good, and well coached. Even if there were zero YC's against South River I'm not sure if the outcome would've been different. Maybe a closer score, but maybe Severna Park still wins...but maybe not. It just pisses me off to see "refs" have so much influence in the outcome of an important game, or any game. Again, thanks for listening. Oh, two players in this game are going to Hofstra next year. Both studs. HU needs the help and these two should be able to play a lot right away and help. The player from South River is a fast, left-handed defender that can play middie...redhead with a desire to win. The girl from Severna Park has a nose for the goal and drives hard. They're good friends from club ball. Good luck to both!

Anyone that picked that team to win last year was just being optimistic. This year they are being realistic. No one has given them a game yet. Does that mean that they are unbeatable? No, but I would be very surprised if they didn't win states.

That Hills (9-5) Bay Shore (7-9) game was huge for Bay Shore. Commack (9-7)looks ripe to over take one of them (Probably BS) and N Bab (8-8) has the easiest schedule left as far as potential wins, but will it give them the pts needed (Look at Sachem East 4-7 harder schedule) record means nothing.

Looks like Bay Shore and N Bab will be the outsiders.

the top teams could get interesting. Good luck to all the girls

Who cares how many goals one kid scores, missing the point. Point is in Huntington we have a one girl goal leader but that doesn't get you anywhere. We are out of any playoff looks. That is directly linked to our coaching. Not our players. Coaches putting on a 10 th grader with zero stick, can't shot left or right or catch. She's on 100percent of the time. It's crazy the lack of knowledge that they lack on skill level. Move the jv coaches up and you will probably see a winning team.

see what happened... KW was run out of town because of a reason NO ONE KNOWS and now you have two coaches who by all accounts should not be coaching varsity players. No disrespect to them but they are so out of the element in terms of knowledge of the game that its embarrassing. its a two man team in Huntington and you just can not win with that type of play at this level. Not on LI, maybe in the mid west that would work but the level of talent these girls have here on LI is crazy. All teams need capable coaching. Or they will belly up. I think the coaches we have now were probably not in to taking the job in the first place.

I agree this person should be banned.. I'm sure this kid and her parents don't appreciate being harassed by this person who has some crazy obsession. I would have banned them long ago. Weirdo.


Trust me, he/she is done. What the [lacrosse] kind of obsession it is, is just too creepy for me and he/she is posting in other threads now too. Scary.

It is true, the refs are letting the more dangerous teams win. When the dodger (my daughter) gets knocked in the head, the refs blow the whistle and have the culprit go behind her. The problem is 5 other girls get back on defense and kill the origional dodge to the goal, not to mention the welt on her face. Port Washington wacked my girl countless times all over and never got 1 yellow card! Does someone there know the refs?...yes. Girls lacrosse should have a play on when there is a minor foul and there should be 1 minute penalties issued when a girl plays dirty, not just get behind while her teamates advance on defense. I'm going to get to some girls lax meetings to help smarten up the game.

Give the new coaches a chance, first year. The old coach had a bunch of great players over 5 years and never won a playoff game. In the real world performance like this gets people fired. I know in the school world that isn't always the case but it happened. Give the new coaches a break. Let them learn a trick or two and see how they do by year 3.

It's crazy the lack of knowledge that they lack on skill level. Move the jv coaches up and you will probably see a winning team.




see what happened... KW was run out of town because of a reason NO ONE KNOWS and now you have two coaches who by all accounts should not be coaching varsity players. No disrespect to them but they are so out of the element in terms of knowledge of the game that its embarrassing. its a two man team in Huntington and you just can not win with that type of play at this level. Not on LI, maybe in the mid west that would work but the level of talent these girls have here on LI is crazy. All teams need capable coaching. Or they will belly up. I think the coaches we have now were probably not in to taking the job in the first place.


You know as an outsider, I followed the Huntington posts last year and everyone demanded a change. The aqusations were flying all over about ties to clubs, favoritism, playing time even bullying and you ran a qualified coach out of town. Now it would appear you got exactly what you asked for and your program is a mess. I would also venture a guess that no qualified coach would touch your program with a 10ft pole after what happened last year so they found someone to take the job that probably could care less. It's a shame.

Your daughter should not be barreling into defenders and hoping to be rewarded for bad play by the refs with a free position. Please. That's the problem with girls lacrosse. if refs called charging more often it would protect offensive and defensive players........Dad....pass the ball

It seems like we now know for the most part the issues with Huntington. AS for the other teams that are usually good that are not doing well this year (Sayville, Huntington and East Islip to a point come to mind) what are their issues? I 'm sure they could live with it being less talent but it's the soap opera stuff that makes it worse

Now that is very funny! Have you actually watched any of these LISGYL games? League is a total joke with no real competition.

They are the best on Long Island? Have they played against every girl on Long Island? The only reason the are a shoe in for UA is because CR runs the whole thing. And to say she doesn't give almost every YJ player the look over other kids is a lie. A few players are on the same level from Nassau that never get the look.

Agree 100%. They stand and complain with their dopey jackets and then engage the parents from the other team. Then ask for security to quiet down opposing parents. Their facility is a dump. It all starts with their town teams that are directed from wannabe coaches who think they are Gary Gait coaching Syracuse. Their varsity coach is the biggest complainer which carries thru their organization and community. CLASSLESS

I really hope BBP makes it out of Suffolk and maybe CSH can shut them up. Act like you've been there, show some class. You know its bad when your own Sec 11 neighbors are rooting for the city slickers to take you down.

So team not winning = lets blame the coach? Schools record is basically flat for as far back as I can find, no better, no worse. Maybe there is some talent but probably not very deep. Parents need to march up to school and demand a change!

In this case YES blame the coach = the team has been flat for years because he has been coaching for years!! And to say the talent is not deep for any team is just crazy. Lacrosse players are a dime a dozen - with a few handful of absolute standouts. Do you think all good players are born into certain towns or districts? It's the coaching. Good coaches=consistent success.
