Thats very impressive. Do you know what club teams they played on?
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls Spring 2012 High School Varsity Lacrosse - 12/09/11 04:21 PM
Some one please clarify this for a ignorant guy (me)... all these girls are "playing lacrosse " at these schools or are they attending these schools?? I noticed 2 goalies from the same high school are committed to play D-1?? there couldn't have been enough playing time for both of them in High school so I will assume that the recruiting looks came from there club team
This is club lacrosse and yes both of our Team Elevate Goalies will be playing college - one of them will be D1 the other will be D11. Both are starting goalies for their respective high schools - Cold Spring Harbor and Baldwin.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls Spring 2012 High School Varsity Lacrosse - 12/09/11 09:06 PM
I was referencing the list from post #6073... 2 players from the same high school, both goalies, getting scholarships. is this proof that in some instances High School performance is not as important as what you do in the club tournaments. I dont think they both could have played the same number of quality minutes.
Got it. Some coaches in the past have platooned two goalies. Have not seen it on the girl's side in high school, but have definitely seen it on the boys side.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls Spring 2012 High School Varsity Lacrosse - 12/09/11 11:55 PM
I don't believe high school performance is nearly as important as club season can be. In refernce to post #6073 both goalies, same team, but one definately played more that the other. it was the summer tournaments that made them each stand out to college coaches. yu also have to rememer that the high school season is the same as college so coaches cant always attend games unless the team makes it to counties, lic's, etc.
Two Signings at Richmond

They definitely do not have all of the top 3 or 4 in the winter league and they are competing with all of the teams! I bet if took a poll of the top 3 or 4 you would get a lot of different opinions!
The same age group at liberty played G.C. varsity 2 weeks ago and also lost by I think 4 goals, (That Garden City team is unbelievable, without question, best in the country). So hopefully when the two meet at tourney it will be a good game

I know it isn't the right thread but GC Varsity is not clearly the best team in the country! Northport and Hauppaugue will be right there with them and watch out for ESM! They are very athletic and have the best goalie!
You are obviously a suffolk county lax parent, and I'll assume you haven't seen G.C. play. If E.S.M. or Haupauge were better , they would have beaten them in the L.I. champ. game. at some point over the last 6 years, 7 if you count the year G.C. won the Island , but lost the state . No other school even comes close. So no offense , until some team actually beats them , and doesn't just "look strong this year", they are the best team in N.Y. without question, and in my opinion, the best team in the country. Oh by the way I could say the same thing about 2015 (real) blue. And no I am not a Y.J. parent
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls Spring 2012 High School Varsity Lacrosse - 01/30/12 04:54 PM
I know that GC generally just reloads year after year, but they lost a lot to graduation last year. I think St. Anthony's is probably better than they are this year (they were about as even as you could get last year with GC just a little better). Hauppauge will be tough this year and ESM will be fun to watch. Expect another good year from Mt. Sinai and class A is Northport's to lose. With Manhasette going back to C, they should win that in Nassau. And, as usual, Farmingdale will take Class A in Nassau.

Even the best GC teams are not best in the country, there is a high school down near Baltimore that the GC coach won't play against.

So your saying that maybe , some school in Md. , might be better so G.C. will not play against them. I don't believe that at all. I don't see the Md. schools running up here to play either

No one said those teams are better than GC. They are in their class though. You don't just lose 2 players from the USA team and a great goalie and get better. Hauppaugue has everyone back and they are seniors! ESM is better than people think!

ESM was very good last year. DeMartino took coaches by suprise. The better coaches will game plan to take her out of the game this season. They will finish behind Hauppauge and Rocky Point (this season's sleeper!). ESM will also lose when they play Mt. Sinai....

If ESM plays a team game they can beat any of the teams-which they showed in the playoff game against Hauppague. We will see what the season brings-talk is cheap

And since they just graduated their goalie last year they really dont have a good goalie coming up this year. I believe the next in line is a freshman...correct me if im wrong.

GC lost some great talent last year but return 6 starters - Bruno (Princeton), Dickinson (Penn), Fuchs (Fairfield), McTernian (Richmond), Attanasio (Dartmouth) & Schmidt (Hopkins). The starters have championship experience and know how to win in stressful situations. In addition, GC has many non starters that are committed to D1 schools. GC is scheduled to play many challenging games against many talented teams this season (including Maryland power houses). They may not go undefeated but they will make a determined run for their 7th consecutive state championship.
I think both Mt. Sinai and ESM are both very good teams and this year it will come down to who brings their A-Game...

Does suffolk do preseason seeds like nassau or any kind of official preseason ranking system and if so where can they be found.

Until someone beats them they are the team to beat, but I think the road will be much more difficult for them after losing so much from last year.

Garden City should be at the top until someone knocks them off.I believe Saint Anthonys will be right there with Garden City.Both teams lost a lot to graduation but SA will return 2 attack going to Florida and Harvard,midfield will return players going to the following schools Georgetown,UNC,Rutgers, Princeton,Jacksonvile,High Point,Their defense will be going to Georgetown ,UNH,American.Their goalie will be attending Brown. I like their chances versus anyone.

I think it will be shoreham . . mt sinai and Esm this year if mt sinai can make it with one of their best players out. With Shoreham back in C.It may be theirs ? Who knows.

One big difference is that McDonogh awards scholarships and Saint Anthonys does not.Having said that Garden City is able to put out an all star team as well with one huge obstacle to overcome; you have to live in Garden City to play for Garden City hats off to them 100% town team.

Yes, but they are 100% trained by outside entities like YJ, Liberty, etc etc.

Very good point! It is impressive that any town teams compete with the private schools. When you can recruit and offer scholarships it is a huge advantage! Private scholls should have their own category! No matter how big or small they are!

And they have excellent coaches! Not someone who never even played lacrosse like the girls' high school and middle school coaches in my district.

I believe that it is a TREMENDOUS advantage to have a yellow jackets director coaching a high school team. Most of the best teams have players that have been club trained before ever stepping on a high school field.

Not when the YJ Director tells girls that if they really want to have a shot at varsity, they should come play for the YJ's. Total conflict of interest and it is happening.

If a teacher told a student, "if you really want to get a good grade in my class you need to sign me up as a tutor", they would be fired.

I have posted this before, the schools should not be allowed to put any coach in a position if they have any involvement in anyway to a for profit organization in the same sport. This is for all coaches in all sports. It is a gross conflict of intrest which is abused by many. I have only heard the many stories and conflicts as it pertains to Northport lacrosse, but she is not alone in this. The fix should come down from the top, the state.

Believe me Northport is hardly the only school that has Club coaches or Directors from other programs: Gallagher Head of Liberty: Manhasset HS, her asst coach, Great Neck High School, Lets not forget how many years Blaney (now A.D.) ran Ward Melville overseeing LI Express. Head coach for Connectquot: 91 Lacrosse, East Islip: Top Guns, soon when Shannon Smith comes home a certain high school will be going all out Top Guns..The list grows and grows so stop singling out just one school and program.

I used northport as the example because the discussion was already referencing that situation. The rest of my post cited that this was happening in many schools and many sports and should be banned altogether. Wasn't singling out northport, just continuing the discussion that had started there, which on these lacrosse related discussion boards,is the most obvious example. But its just a bad circumstance anywhere it happens.

It is bound to happen because the best high school programs have the best coaches. The best coaches usually coach club programs. I wish my high school had a club coach or director as a varsity coach as it would only make our program stronger.

You are missing the entire point. It is about the politics and bad situation kids are put into because of this ciircumstance (if they are not onboard with the school coaches affiliation). I do agree it can tend to make the school program stronger, it is a sad situation for anyone who would rather play for any other club though.
If an adult coach/director can't let a girl play for a club other then the one she is affiliated with , without fear of being benched on her high school team, than that coach isn't fit to do help mold and develop young ladies. In that case I would have to agree with the posters that say that coach should be replaced no matter how successful he/she has been in the past. If Carol Rose conducts her public school team like that than sham on her, what a bully she is.

Let's see what happens at manhasset HS with Danielle. There are a few talented kids who play for YJ. we will see what she does

Every single YJ director coaches at a HS or college. Our team has one and she does not make players play for YJ. The people that have joined YJ see the skills that the YJ players have and realize that if they want to play in college they need to step up their game. Most of the complainers think that their kids are better than they really are.

It sounds like everyone contributing to this discussion is not involved in that northport/yj situation. My daughter is not. There are many girls who are though and I'm sure the parents are fully supportive of this combination as it has them on two strong teams. But this is about the girls and parents who would like to choose a different travel club and the position they are put in. Without moving, your stuck with the school team in whatever district you live in. The nice thing about travel is that you should be able to choose whatever team you want to play for, without this sort of concerns.

Let BOTC offer a counter-point on the overlap discussion between club and scholastic lacrosse coaches. On the soccer side with Back of the Net, the Fall season is filled with complaints about High School programs where the head coaches "do not know the beautiful game" and who should be replaced with "quality coaches" that are part of the club scene. There are still the same accusations of favortism and talent being improperly evaluated that you see discussed here on Back of the Cage.

Lacrosse has an "advantage" as the named and more-knowledgable club coaches are already in place with many scholastic teams. That does draw the ire from readers of favoritism based on club affiliations, but you have to conclude that there is less uninformed decision making being made in Varsity Lacrosse with these named coaches than just about any other school sport on the whole.

Danielle has coached at Manhasset since '06. If there are girls still playing for Y.J's it doesn't sound like there being faced with this problem.

Carol Rose has had plenty of girls start and play for her that did not play YJ's!! State the kid involved! If you can't do that keep your comments to yourself!!!!! Don't tarnish someones reputation without specifics and proof! It is unfair and cowardly!!

that is BS, all Northport kids play YJ or else, and none would ever think of playing on a rival club or they would be kicked out of the school district

libertydad seems to have an issue with the YJ overall, from coaches to how the organization is run. Hmmm I wonder why?

How could you say that about me. I have said that Carol has helped a lot of girls get to college, that she has put together some of the best teams , and that she is a super judge of talent. i have also defended her against some unruly parents from other clubs. You can go back and check the posts. Now I ask any of you Jacket parents, have any of you ever said anything nice or positive about Danielle , or Liberty. But if carol , or any coach ,is threatening players to play for a affiliated club, the should be ashamed of there actions , and replaced as coach of a public High School team.

Absolutely true, but this year will be a big test for them. They are good but they will not be as dominant as they were in the past. It won't be easy replacing those kids who graduated. No question they are considered the best until someone knocks them off. St.A's will be tough this year.

Get ready to eat some humble pie when GC goes to MD. Taylor Cummings and her teamates will eat you alive if you are unfortunate enough to face them.

If your going to post about L.I. lax do some homework . G.C. has won 6 straight n.y. titles against a lot more teams . with much better talent in a state 3 times bigger than yours . And like the other poster said they dont go fishing for talent like your better teams do . These girls are all home grown , not hired guns, and your still going to lost to them. all yoiur money cant buy you a win against these girls

Do you really want people to feel bad for the poor Garden City girls .You mention MD can't buy a win,are you aware that Garden City has one of the higher per capita income levels in the north east. This is 2012 and although the season hasn't started you are living in the past GC will be lucky to be within 5 goals of McDonogh. While your girls play together from the time they are in elementary school our girls have only their high school years to play together. See you in MD. Watch out for the speed cameras!

As the parent of Garden City multi-year varsity starter, I can attest to the returning talent to this year’s team and they should make a solid run for another State Championship. With that said, we lost incredible talent last year and it very difficult to replace greatness. If we played the "U" last year it would have been a remarkable display of talent (both teams) and a great game. This year, GC will be challenged to go undefeated against the top private schools... it will be interesting to see how deep thy can dig. As for the banter of who is better than who, I wish it would end... a little humility goes a long way.

Come on are you seriously saying that public schools have some sort of advantage over private schools who can recruit. I am sure many of the girls from McDonogh play together for years with M and D or some other club. Any good coach can take the talent any day! It's a joke that these private schools don't destroy the public schools (that includes St. Anthony's). They really should be in their own category. If they don't beat the public schools they should be embarrassed!

I thin the point is that McDonogh can go and recruit better players from any school any where , where as Garden City can only play players from Garden City. Therefore McDonogh would have a huge advantage over most Long Island teams . To say that Garden City cant get within 5 goals is silly , until they play they are probably the 2 best in the country, I give the edge to Garden City

In my opinion, If you take the G.C. girls off of the L.I. clubs (and lets be honest, were talking about the Y.J.) I dont think the clubs do well. Put the G.C. girls back in the clubs and play them against McDonogh, and i think it gets very close

Rather high opinion of yourselves. But that is the point, A YJ team is stronger than GC school team, and McDonogh is basically the same as a elite club team in that they draw girls from all different towns to make up a roster, big advantage. And honestly, your right YJ are to be considered top, but that grip is certainly slipping.

To be fair the discussion was started when a poster declared Garden City to be the best team in the country. It is true that McDonogh does offer scholarships for athletes but keep in mind MD. Does not have a public school system comparable to New [lacrosse] so if someone offers a free ride to a high school that can cost in the $20,000 range you jump at it.I was lucky enough to see both Garden City and McDonogh play last year,not each other but enough to get a fair idea of each teams abilities and would have to lean towards McDonogh . This year will be no different in my opinion but hey that's why the girls play the game. enjoy the games with your daughters it all goes by to fast

Yes, each year is different because kids graduate every year. SO it is hard to say GC is the best "school team" in the country. Since they lost so many players you cant compare this year to last. And the final rankings last year they still were not # 1. Dont assign accolades to this years team based on past performance since this is only a school team.

It depends on which YJ team. On some YJ teams, the GC girls are the weakest on the roster. Town lacrosse leagues have now been around long enough where GC is not the only town with kids who can really play by 4th grade. GC and some others had a big edge, but that has now faded.

While your girls play together from the time they are in elementary school our girls have only their high school years to play together. See you in MD. Watch out for the speed cameras!

Come on are you seriously saying that public schools have some sort of advantage over private schools who can recruit. I am sure many of the girls from McDonogh play together for years with M and D or some other club. Any good coach can take the talent any day! It's a joke that these private schools don't destroy the public schools (that includes St. Anthony's). They really should be in their own category. If they don't
beat the public schools they should be embarrassed!


Do you really believe that St. Anthony's recruits? How do you recruit when there is a tuition payment in excess of 8,000 to attend and there are no athletic scholarships for lacrosse. Some people take a 2nd job just to send their kids ,I'm one of them mine just graduated and it was worth every dime. It may not be for everyone but for my daughter it certainly was.

St. Anthony's is self selecting. The kids/parents know it is known for top athletics, so the top athletes apply/ attend. Chaminade is the same self-selecting, except it is for academics the top kids sit for the exam, they take the top applicants. It isn't that these schools make them into top athletes/scholars. They come in at that level already.

Sheesh my kid went public and got academic scholarship to a D1 school and was a walk on for sport. Grades/SAT scores will be what get you the opportunity. Didn't cost me a dime for high school.

Does St.Anthony's, Chaminade etc. offer academic financial assistance?

Assistance is available on a financial need basis no other assistance is available.

It is a matter of who's n"needs" you're talking about.

For instance, St Anthony's really "needs" that kid to play well against Chaminade this year, so let's give him some money!

I follow a girls' HS basketball website and there are always discussions about the various parochial schools recruiting and offering all sorts of perks. So yeah, maybe St. A's and the others don't offer scholarships on paper, just like a D3 college, they can, and do, work with you in other ways. It's naive to believe otherwise.

Not that hard to find out ,take lax for example ,the coach goes to a travel lax tournament see's a very talented 7-8 grade player from some team and speaks to the parents about the virtues of St. Anthony education, Happens all the time.

Wouldn't a tremendous pre-season event include the four top Maryland teams (McDonough, Bryn Mawr, Good Counsel, and Marriotts Ridge) facing off against the Long Island powerhouses (St. Anthony's, Garden City, Northport, and Farmingdale)? Each team plays a mini-game against the four out-of-state sides with the best record from the Maryland group and best record from the New [lacrosse] group fighting it out in a Championship match for preseason "hot bed" bragging rights?

I know Farmingdale has a great tradition,great coaching and was a great team recently,but there is no way they are a top 4 team this year. They just lost too much talent.

The latest information that we have was that Shoreham-Wading River was still sized at Class B based on registration numbers.
2012 New [lacrosse] Girls' High School Preview via ESPN

Class A

Baldwinsville (N.Y.) returns two All-Central New [lacrosse] Second Team selections in Claire and Maggie Monnat. The attackers look to help Baldwinsville improve upon its 13-5 season and avenge its two losses to West Genesee last season.

Bay Shore (Bay Shore, N.Y.) returns six starters from last year's team, including USC commit Caroline DeLyra and Under Armour Underclass All-American Kaitlyn Arnold.

Corning (N.Y.) finished at No. 38 in last year's FAB 50 and returns midfielder Haley Lukefahr who represented Upstate New [lacrosse] at the Under Armour Underclassmen games.

Farmingdale (N.Y.) returns six players that have committed to Division I programs. The Dalers only two losses last season were to the New [lacrosse] Class A and B champions (Northport, Garden City) so the Dalers should have a stellar season in store for 2012. The offense should be strong again with the seniors Kim Kolodny (Rutgers), Colleen Reynolds (Fairfield), Megan Sullivan (Stony Brook) and junior Amanda Turturro (Rutgers).

Lakeland-Panas (Shrub Oak, N.Y.) returns eight starters from last year's 16-3-1 team, including Division I commits: Alexa Bonnes (Connecticut), Chyna Hill (Fresno State) along with midfielder Emma Bozek who is committed to North Carolina for field hockey.

Niskayuna (N.Y.) finished 15-5 last season. Three of the Warriors losses were by a combined four goals a stat that could turn around in 2012 with the return of ESPNHS 100 midfielder Kayla Treanor.

Northport (N.Y.) was talented last season, finishing as the No. 8 team in the FAB 50 and winning the Class A state championship. As talented as the Tigers were last year, 2012 could be even better. Led by the No. 1 junior in the nation and the youngest player on the US U-19 team, Cortney Fortunato (Notre Dame), Northport boasts an impressive lineup. Six seniors are committed to Division I programs, including two goalies Michaela Aymong (Richmond) and Meghan Kollmeier (UMass). The goalies have a strong defense in front of them with Amanda Desmond (Iona) and Annie Dodge (Siena).

Ward Melville (East Setauket, N.Y.) finished 11-7 last season, its first winning record in three seasons. 2012 could be a continued improvement with four players committed to Division I programs, including seniors Jordan Porretto (St. Francis) and Elizabeth Rullan (Navy).

West Genesee (Camillus, N.Y.) returns its top five midfielders, top three defenders and two of its top three attackers from last year's 19-1 team. Eight current Wildcats have committed to play college lacrosse, including three ESPNHS 100 players: Emily Tripodi (31), Shelby Milne (52) and Kara Dattellas (55).

Class B

Carthage (Carthage, N.Y.) returns eight starters from last year's 12-7 team. The offense should be strong this season with Adilen Cruz (Belmont Abbey), Alyssa Kidder (Liberty) and Meghan Serota (LeMoyne) returning to the midfield and attack.

Fox Lane (Beford, N.Y.) returns seven starters from last year's 16-1 squad, including North Carolina commit and ESPNHS 100 athlete Sammy Jo Tracy. Three players overall from the Foxes are committed to D-I programs: Kate Burbank (North Carolina), Kailey O'Hagan (Cornell) and Tracy.

Garden City (N.Y.) graduated nine seniors from last season's No. 2 FAB 50 team, but the Trojans will reload in 2012. Nine players are committed to Division I programs, including ESPNHS 100 athletes Alexandra Bruno (Princeton) and Catherine Dickinson (Pennsylvania). The Trojans talent level combine with its schedule that includes St. Anthony's should make the Trojans a favorite to FAB 50 voters in addition to the favorite to repeat as Class B state champions for the seventh straight season. The defense is anchored by Top 50 junior Linda Attanasio.

Hauppauge (N.Y.) returns 10 starters, including eight future Division I players, from a team that finished 19-1 and reached the Class B quarterfinals. Two ESPNHS 100 players lead the Eagle; No. 8 Stephanie Peragallo (Notre Dame) and No. 14 Taylor Ranftle (Virginia).

Manhasset (N.Y.) boasts the No. 3 player in the ESPNHS 100 with the return of attacker Halle Majorana (Maryland). Two of Manhasset's losses last season were to Garden City, so the Indians will likely have another chance at the Trojans if both teams make it to the Section 11 final.

Last year was a year of adjustments for Shoreham-Wading River (Shoreham, N.Y.). The Wildcats moved to Class B last season after dominating Class C during the previous four seasons and also had a new coach on the sideline when Mary Bergmann took over for Bob Vlahakis. 2012 could be a better year with the return of Northwestern commit Meredith Bushell and Ohio State commit Paulina Constant. The juniors should help anchor the midfielder while senior Katie Boden (UMass) leads the attack.

Class C

Lafayette (Lafayette, N.Y.) returns 10 starters, including its starting attack (Cassley Jackowski and Emily Peebles) and goalie (Shannon Knapp) from a team that won its first league title and reached the sectional quarterfinals last season.

CHSAA

Sacred Heart Academy (Hempstead, N.Y.) won 10 of its final 12 games last season with the two losses coming at the hands of St. Anthony's. The Spartans could challenge for the CHSAA title again this season with five seniors heading to play Division I lacrosse. The offense should be strong with attackers Meghan Breen (UMass), Ashley Ruchalski (Siena) and Maeve Quinn (Fairfield) all returning.

St. Anthony's (South Huntington, N.Y.) looks to win its fourth-straight CHSAA championship and with eight starters returning will be the favorite. Twelve players on the Friars squad have committed to play Division I lacrosse, including two ESPNHS 100 selections -- Annie Heagerty (Georgetown) and Darcy Messina (Florida). The junior class is equally talented with two ESPNHS Top 50 juniors -- Maggie Bill (North Carolina) and Jenny Schwalje (Georgetown). The Friars schedule is not entirely set yet, but the team will play in the St. Paul's Play Day weekend where they will play two of the top Maryland teams -- either Bryn Mawr (Baltimore, Md.), Good Counsel (Olney, Md.), McDonogh (Owings Mills, Md.) or St. Paul's (Brooklandville, Md.).
ESPN Games to Watch for the 2012 Season

April 16: Northport at Ward Melville
April 21: St. Anthony's at St. Paul's MD/NY Challenge
April 27: Bay Shore at Northport
April 28: St. Anthony's at Garden City

The Maryland/New [lacrosse] Challenge at St. Paul's (Brooklandville, Md.) on April 21 will affect the FAB 50 as two of the hotbeds go head to head.

The schedule has not yet been published so what the matchups have not been set, but St. Anthony's is expected to take on two of the top teams in Maryland.

Rather than guessing, BOTC contacted the Shoreham-Wading River district this morning. Given decreased enrollment from last season and the revised breakpoints, the girls Varsity Lacrosse program is a Class C for Spring 2012. Previous reports of remaining a Class B school were in error.

Look, C schools are, by definition, smaller in student population. That means there's less talent to choose from. Ergo, more room for younger talent.

Please remove Diana Rienzo and Christine Rienzo from your list. They turned down the Siena offer for a variety of reasons.

Suffolk's Cinelli Discusses Fewer High School Championships

Story reprinted from Newsday High School Sports, March 18th

Suffolk County's top high school sports official has introduced the idea of eliminating or curtailing state championships because of the high cost of participation.

"We love the state championships, but financially it's a burden," Section XI executive director Ed Cinelli said. "That's the reason we want to discuss this. For the 2011-12 school year, there is not a single state championship on Long Island. We're traveling for everything. There's a huge cost to that. We'd like to bring some events down here."

School districts, which help support Sections VIII and XI -- the governing bodies for sports in Nassau and Suffolk respectively -- through dues, are under tremendous financial pressure, struggling with the fallout from reduced state aid, staff layoffs, escalating pension costs and staying within the mandated 2 percent cap on property tax increases.

Cinelli said it cost Section XI more than $200,000 in travel expenses for the 2010-11 school year to send Suffolk teams or individual athletes to state championships. The New [lacrosse] State Public High Schools Athletic Association reimburses each of the state's 11 sections for some transportation costs for state tournaments, but not for all travel costs.

The remainder of the article is available at Newsday's web site.

Since Suffolk has not started yet, some news from the east. Attended the Hauppauge/Bay Shore game and Bay Shore girls team looks pretty strong this season. Score was around 8-4 (about) but seemed that the teams were playing nearly full tilt. Anyone else see Bay Shore yet this season in Suffolk?

Haha, okay. It was a close game, back and forth the whole time. RP was up by 3 at one point but BBP closed the gap before running out of clock. A couple warnings by the refs to the coaches of both teams, a pretty equal number of yellows on each side, it was an exciting game.

That's about as succinct as I can get. whistle I heard these teams will not be rematched at the round robin thing RP is hosting on Saturday, but I still don't know who else is attending.

Yes I watched them play yesterday. I went to watch my niece play for West Babylon. Classy coach, didn't run score up although at one point it was 11-1 Bay Shore. Very very strong offensively with a number of kids that can play. I don't know who they are since they didn't have rosters or announcing. I will look at Newsday High School Sports for game recap.

Suffolk League I
The first surprise so far has to be Bay Shore. Not so much for their wins, but because both of their first two games were over at halftime (12-4, 9-3). Seems that the tank has much more to give and the goals are coming from all over the field. Also in Suffolk, Sachem North, Sachem East, Ward Melville, and Northport are all off to expected starts. West Islip at 1-2 is off slowly, but their win was against Massapequa who many were saying looked great in their 13-12 OT comeback yesterday.

Suffolk League II
Still like Hauppauge from last season along with Sayville and Rocky Point. Remain fearful of Mount Sinai - this was the very young varsity team from last year and returning most of the squad. With only one match against Westhampton done, hard to know where they really stand, but these figure to be the top four across the board.

I'm just curious as to how are the conferences determined? For example, why are Garden City, Farmingdale and Manhasset not in the same conference? How does it benefit the higher and lower level teams in these conferences to play each other?

No SWR parent or player would post the previous classless words. Rocky Point played really well and had the lead 4-0 at one point. They will do well this year and it was a hard fought game. SWR was fortunate to come out on top. The ridiculous post was obviously someone stirring the pot!! You know who you are.....childish really.

Taken from a Lancaster newspaper.

As the lacrosse season approaches I unfortunately turn my thoughts to the parents of these athletes. It’s not a lot of them, not even the majority, but a very small vocal minority that seem to ruin this wonderful sport each year.

I’ve come to the conclusion that this epidemic may ruin this game. I’ve also concluded that these acts from fully functioning adults are for a few reasons. The first is because they are living vicariously through their children and are helicopter parents (always hovering). Secondly they feel entitled (a word that will be brought up often) because they spent x-amount of money on their kid’s sport. Third, they think their child is better than they actually are. Finally, because it’s an affluent sport and they have some money, or a few letters (MD, PHD) at the end of their names, and think they can dictate playing time, press coverage, etc. because they’re in a profession where they do it 24/7.

In the five years that I have covered this sport I have witnessed a laundry list of actions by parents.

There have been, by my count, four coaches that have been run out by parents. All of these coaches had won MULTIPLE league titles. There’s a coach now that’s been on a parent’s hit list for two years. This parent went as far as to go to the school board and ask for this coach to be removed. Luckily the AD at that school took a stand and stood up for his coach. The aforementioned coaches didn’t have that administrative support.

Because this sport is becoming more popular and seeing its athletes succeed beyond high school more unrealistic expectations occur. Some parents seem to think that because John Smith at this school received a scholarship that their precious perfect child will too. Or because a certain school has a number of Division I players and they believe their child is just as good. THEY’RE NOT. It’s not easy to get a lacrosse scholarship and no lacrosse scholarship is a full ride. If you got your child into this sport to get a scholarship, or have their name in the newspaper, than they’re playing for the wrong reason.

I was told by a well-respected coach, in another sport that has similar problems, that winning and players succeeding is a problem and here’s why: Coaches understand god-given ability and realistic expectations and parents don’t. That’s the difference and that’s a problem. Point being: When you win, players succeed. With success come unrealistic expectations from some parents. That’s where the problem begins. 10 years ago this wasn’t an issue because the sport was in its infancy stage. Everyone just wanted to play for fun. Where did that go?

I have received too many emails to count on how my coverage of the sport is unfair and biased. I’ve received emails calling me names, emails calling for my job and emails saying I’m bad at my job. The writers of those emails are obviously hypocritical because they’re writing because they feel their child has been slighted. They have tunnel vision. They have a horse in the race. I don’t. Who’s objective in all of this? The reporter.

I understand that parents want the best for children. I really do. But there are ways to do that other than making everyone else’s life miserable. If most of these players knew how their parents were acting they’d be embarrassed.

A teenager gains nothing if they’re playing because of their parents pull. They gain more if they earned it. In fact, they gain even more if they don’t start. Life is that way. It’s unfair at times. It doesn’t always reward hard work. It doesn’t entitle anyone to anything. You don’t always get what you want. To forcefully keep your kids from experiencing this early in their lives will almost certainly handicap them in the real world where, more often than not, it doesn’t matter who your parents are.

Unfortunately this isn’t reserved for only lacrosse. It’s a disease spreading to every sport in high school. At a time when scholastic sports are on life support parents should be joining with coaches and the administration and be on the same team. Many aren’t. That’s sad. It’s pathetic. It needs to end.

Again, I don’t believe this is all parents. It’s a minority of them but a very vocal minority. I appreciate most of the parents. I understand the time and financial sacrifices you make and I enjoy speaking with most parents throughout the season.

Those that read this and nod their heads understand the problem. Those that read this and shake their heads ARE the problem.

As for teams on the rise Sachem East: it could be argued that they are playing weaker side of Schedule, but win over Floyd was big. Pat Med same as Sachem East, weak schedule so far, Win over Sachem North not as big as it looks.

Sachem East (the Trombetta Show) has played what 4 games. they have more wins than all opponents combined. Beating Copiague, Brentwood, Floyd, and Miller Place doesn't mean your doing well, it means you have a weak schedual. Northport losing to West Babylon is huge at any time during the season. losing to an unranked (lax power) opponent at any time is damaging. And really, shouldn't a top team win that game

I would agree that the Northport story is bigger than the Sachem East story. Now if Sachem goes on to beat Bayshore and Ward Melville later this month, then you have a story. But having Northport lose to West Babylon is a bigger story. Yes West Babylon has a top scorer that is going to Northwestern and has a very athletic team (the kid who shut down Northport's #1 recruit has only been playing LAX for 2 years) but they are not deep and should not even be in the same class as Northport, or at least their reputation.

Maybe losing 10 seniors last year was too much for Northport to overcome.

Does everything have to be turned into anti YJ ,the obsession is sad. Just curious as to what do people think when one team is far superior to another on the varsity level, should the better pull it back a little after the game is clearly out of reach or just keep scoring.

It's yj infighting, not anti yj. The issue layed out was somebody saying the yj girls that play for garden city are stronger than those for northport, then northport striknig back saying they hope no college coaches watch their game or nobody is going to college.

Northport will always field a competitive team but losing 10 seniors will put a dent in any program. Northport is just not the same team and will most likey get back to the power they once were but over time. CF is only 1 player and West Babylon figured out that if you put a good defender on her and force the rest of the team to beat you, you have a good chance. Once this squad get more familiar with each other they will be, once again, queens of the hill.

To answer your question , I believe a team should pull back and at least go goal for goal, with the weaker team. Margin of victory, or goals for has no bearing on the standings. If a team continues to run up the score, I think its disrespectful

Thats just an excuse. Every year they say the same thing about G.C. They lost all there seniors and there not going to win this year. But every yeay there they are winning the stat. Before last year Northport hasn't won states in how, long what 10 or more years. Always second best to Farmingdale.

As the sport grows you can find similar or even better athletes
in Suffolk County than bringing the Nassau girls out to Suffolk. All your getting at the younger ages are the Nassau girls who know about the program, not really the best athletes.

That happens all the time, across all sports. I have seen players that graduated given stats because the rosters have not been updated! There was a huge discussion about this on another sport's forum and the consensus was that not much is going to change. If your coach isn't interested in keeping accurate stats (or correcting the inaccuracies) then that's the end of that. It does make a lot of people crazy though, and it annoys all of us that want to see who is doing what.

Powder, possibly video proof of the false reporting would make a difference? Especially since some post season awards are based on these false stats.

BUT if you try and help out the coach or correct them you will get the coaches wrath! All anyone wants is for these highly paid coaches to do their job. and calling in the scores correctly is part of their job. If we did, what they did, at a lot of our jobs, we would all be fired!!

Coaches are only partly to blame. Many of the stats are recorded by other students in between texts to their boyfriend/girlfriend. You want your coaches attention during the game on what matters, not stats. Are they paid to watch film and dig out an assist your daughter didn't get credit for? It is an imperfect system that doesn't budjet enough money to pay someone to be soley concerned with stats, except for one, wins and losses.

In the age of video it is easy to see the discrepancy....guess someday (soon) it will come to light. The ones keeping these stats should be truthful (no matter what others direct them to do). You can even see some all to involved folks on the field after games going over the stats and actually having them changed. No worries though because the truth always eventually wins...peace out.

Its not about money or budgets...its about honesty. And its not the coaches.
I think in some cases the coaches honestly don' t have the right stats to begin with. I know in basketball our coach has one of the JV girls or a parent keep the stats. The JV girls can be half-assed and the parent has his own agenda -- his daughter's stats are always okay (or better than okay) but everyone else's are always messed up in a negative way. And I don't think he's deliberately doing that so much as not paying as much attention to anyone else as he does to his daughter.

Even in college they get some student to keep the stats and those too get messed up from time to time, which since they are kept electronically means they will never, ever, be righted.

IMO, a coach can't run the game and keep stats because that's too many balls in the air, but someone reliable SHOULD keep stats.

anyone have a issue with Northport putting up 22 goals on a team who only scored 8??

Should one of the best players around (with nothing to prove, by the way) be in a game long enought to score 10?
Originally Posted by Anonymous

19-1 (18 goal difference)
15-1 (14 goal difference)
17-5 (12 goal difference)
17-4 (13 goal difference)
18-3 (15 goal difference)
17-4 (13 goal difference)
21-3 (18 goal difference)

These were the wins put up by Middle Country, West Babylon, Half Hollow Hills, Bay Shore, Garden City, Ward Melville, and Farmingdale on Wednesday. The difference is that while Northport did put up 22 goals, Commack had the ability to move the ball and score posting 8 goals themselves. That 22-8 game was a "closer" event than any of these seven from yesterday.

Certainly, you would think that Garden City and Farmingdale should have "known" better and Bay Shore with their emerging team should learn quickly.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls Spring 2012 High School Varsity Lacrosse - 04/05/12 01:56 PM
I beleive the "tradition" has always been to stop scoring at 19

more than that was in bad taste.

I guess like everything else times change
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls Spring 2012 High School Varsity Lacrosse - 04/05/12 04:35 PM
she cant be that good if she only put up 2 goals vs East Islip and only one goal against West Babylon. What happened? She got her 7 goals against a team they beat 19 - 7. (15 - 3 at halftime) and 10 goals against a team they beat 22 - 8. (11 - 3 at halftime). Now those are 17 quality goals against 2 teams that have a combined 3 wins. way to go Carol. you show great sportmanship. you are teaching those kids well

I would like to bring in this conversation the competence of varsity coaches. I will admit I do not like how some coaches are aggressive like Carol Ross from Northport. However my hat goes off to her. Her team respects her and watching the player they know what she wants from them on the field. Her girls play very aggressive but seem to play by the rules. I was also watching Bay Shore the other day and those girls are less aggressive but are always after the ball and dominate on ball control.

I do feel sorry for the girls on the Smithtown Team there coach seems to have no control of them and most importantly of her-self. I know this because my daughter plays on the team and the Coach seems to demands respect but doesn’t show it. She goes off on them saying things like she’s better than them and that she the one that has a NCAA Championship. At one point after losing to Walt Whitman she took away a team “T” shirt that we the parents paid for saying that they don’t deserve to wear it. I must admit they did play petty bad that day but is that a reflection on the girls or the Coach?

Does anyone else have these problems????

sound like the coach is very immature and isn't ready to coach at that level yet. what year did she win at the college level, and what team did she play for
I was thinking the same thing. That coach sounds too immature to coach. She's taking the job far too personally.

This is why travel/club lacrosse is so great. On PAL and school teams you are stuck with whatever coach is put in the position. It can be quite a bad situation for some. Travel, you at least have a little bit of choice and some wiggle room, not saying that all travel coaches are good, but at least your not stuck playing for someone like you mentioned. Plus the level of play on the travel teams is way, way beyond the school/ town leauges and this goes for the coaching on a whole as well. My view of school and town ball is it is just extra field time in preparation for the summer tournaments.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls Spring 2012 High School Varsity Lacrosse - 04/05/12 05:47 PM
My daughter's team has a horrible coach who thinks the more he yells and berates them, the better they will do. There is rarely any positive reinforcement. And the more advanced the player, the worse he treats them. All the girls are so afraid to make any mistakes. And forget it if he knows a girl wants to play in college - every time they make a mistake he'll tell them how colleges don't recruit girls like that or I can't believe you think you can play in college. BTW, the team has a losing record, so i guess his tactics don't work. I'd love to say something to him or write a letter to the athletic director but know he would take it out on my daughter. Thank goodness for the club teams.

Did Commack take their starters off the field? This score is no worse than others listed and since NPT is off to a slow start they may need to play starters more to build some cohesiveness.

Not sure I think she was the coach. It was about 20 years ago.

The difference is that all of those other schools did not have their star player put up 10 goals against a weaker team. It was 11-3 at halftime.

I'm sure its not want people want to see on this thread that is dedicated to school ball, but school ball is pretty much a joke. Now there are a couple programs and coaches worth a $#!+, but way too many are road kill which is obvious by to 20 something to near nothing scores we see. Pretty much all the school teams that are good is because they have a high content of travel players. But hey, they all have to play school ball.

The good news for you is that if your daughter is thinking of going to college to play, This dope will have little effect on her chances. It's all about the club season for recruiting. Can you say what school she is in. Maybe the B.O.T.C. community can come together through all our differences and help you out. I really hate coaches like that

You guys are pathetic, who cares who scores the goals, the question is if running up the score is acceptable or not.My daughters team played a much lesser team this past monday and scored 22 goals. I was told the other program has been varsity for a very short time.My daughter told me the game was out of reach early but they still face guarded the other teams only good player and one of the girls attempted a long range shot with time running out.Even she felt bad, the coach should be embarrassed.

I'm sure that there is nothing that Carol Rose would like more than for someone to break al Shannon Smith's NYS records, that's who she is

i watched them play Northport and it was a joke. their supposedly best player does not hustle and only played hard when the subs came in.Then she scored. It starts at the middle school level, with a coach on his cell phone the whole practice! thank god for summer ball

In refrence to the prior posts from parents complaining about coaches screaming at the girls thinking it will compel the players to be better, take a look at how the St. Anthonys girls coaches behave. They are stern but not crazy, calm but not soft, and they get big results. I believe 13 of the 14 seniors have collage commitments to play lacrosse.

Great response. Even a parent and a player on the winning team can see this is not right. These blowouts are an opportunity for teams to work on quickstick passing, long range passing around the circle or a million other things. To keep stars going to goal and face gaurding other players once the game is in hand is terrible sportsmanship. Sadly a coaches bad policy has to reflect on players who do not agree with it. Put it on the coach.

Screaming coaches are fine, it all depends how and what they are screaming. Some are screaming play calls and adjustments, some are screaming support and praise, then some are screaming at the players. To scream once in a blue moon on a mistake is one thing, some coaches just scream nasty, negative things directed at the girls all game/practice long. One of my daughters has a coach like this, it is a bad situation for all the kids.

And why should that not be every players goal? Smith is an amazing player and she broke someone se's record. Get a life you bash coach rose and now you want to bash a player who happens to be the top ranked player in the US. She is making a statement after her poor showing from north ports loss. Smith would do the same no doubt about it.

I was the one who wrote about my daughter's terrible coach. My kids have had many coaches throughout the years, both through travel teams & school, never have I seen a coach as bad as this one. This is not constructive screaming, it is nasty and meant to embarrass the players. He has actually said he wants to "[lacrosse] them off" so they play better. So far this has been a losing strategy for him. Good players have actually quit the varsity team because of him. It would be great if he took some inspiration from the many successful coaches around, but I doubt that will happen. The St. Anthony's team is a totally different group of girls than my daughter's team. I'd say maybe only 2 or 3 girls on her team have any desire to play in college and the rest pretty much pick up their sticks only March-May. This is not a knock on the girls, they are nice kids, it's just completely different type of team. What is unfortunate is that some of these girls are pretty athletic and if they had better coaching and positive reinforcement they would probably enjoy the sport more and develop as players.

This is not really about the player, who is quite capable, we get that. It's more a reflection of poor sportsmanship on the coaches part. A player is going to go all out unless told otherwise. She was clearly not told otherwise. So if the coach is looking to pile on the stats, feasting on a weak team is the way to do it. Mission accomplished, doesn't mean the rest of us need to agree with it.

29-0 florida is unsportsmanlike not the Northport score . It's obvious commacks first string was able to score. Why should Northport sub so Commack kids get the stats against their second string. I watched this happen in the smith town west game . Northport subs an entire team to watch smith town starters score 4 in a row. Where is sportsmanship in that? The loosing team needs to throw in the towel and sub first. Hey Shannon smith scored 15 in a high school game against NOBODY but that's ok??

I would guess all teams do this especially playing non conference games. My D team was assaulted by another team during a non conference game. The parents of the opposing team in the stands were very vocal and really took pleasure in the pounding and not just cheering but abusive. The girls heard it. The opposing coach KNEW my D team was clearly for stat building for her girls. After the game in as much said it.
This was not a YJ or Liberty team.

I agree it is one of the toughest games out there, But that is all the more reason for GOOD Sportsmanship. The other team is also playing the "Toughest" game. Every other coach pulled the starters at half time, not Northport. The coaches and the ten goal scorer's personal goals are more important than Sportsmanship. It may happen this year some team drops a Twenty on Your team, then what will you post?????.

Does anyone know where tis game will be played
Hahaha, check out basketball and S. Zambrotta. She scored a bazillion points in a game (I forget, maybe 60?) and her teammates, in total, scored in the single digits. THis was against a crap team but she wanted the numbers so the coach let her run them up. That netted her MSG Varsity coverage and Newsday coverage and it was a joke. In the basketball world, it was viewed very negatively, much as many of us see Northport/CR/CF right now.

Some people need to inflate their numbers for their own sense of self-worth.

It is just further proof that, IMO, Carol Rose is nothing but a bully. Since her loss to to a mediocre West Babylon team, She has hung 12 plus goal victories on Smithtown west (1-3) And Commack (2-3). Sounds like someone doesn't know how to win with class. Surprise,surprise, Carol Rose has no class. Its also the reason why she only plays teams from the Island, and all but 1 game in the section, where they have no choice but to play her. all the better teams , McDonogh, St.Anthony's, Notre Dame Prep, Farmingdale, Darrien, Manhasset, will not play her because shes dirty and classless. Last year I happened to have the luck to have a conversation with a bunch of parents from Good Counsel , who Northport played last year, And they told me that she was "screaming like an Idiot, the woman has no class". the assured me that they would never play Northport ever again. She still has to play Ward Melville, Bay Shore, West Islip,and Wantaugh, I hope all 4 teams hang 12 plus goals on her. I also hope the Garden City girls realize that Carol Rose the Yellow Jackets and Northport are the ones reaping the benefits from there skill. Start you own club or play for another and lets watch Carol Rose crumble. "KILL THE BEE"

Coach Rose is doing something right one of the top coaches in the country. Thats why her club and HS team are successful. Just because she is a WINNER you feel the need to make FALSE statements to bring her down. She is not a bully, dirty or classless but to the contrary a Class Act!! Oh and by the way she is NO SCREAMING IDIOT. The only idiot is YOU for writing a tasteless, disgusting comments on this board. Best of Luck to the Tigers.

Wins are nice championships are better

since 1995 state champions from L.I.

Manhasset - 1 class B 2003
Shoreham-Wading River - 4 class C 2007,8,9,10
Farmingdale - 2 Class A 2009,10
Garden City - 12 class B 1995,7,9 2000,01,02,06,07,08,09,10,11
Northport - 1 Class A 2011

Looks like Carol Rose built her reputation off of Garden City's hard work. I'll give it to her though she was smart to start the first travel program and take all the G.C. girls to make herself look good. As far as Northport goes besides Ward Melville (who almost all ways beat them) who does she play Copauge, Brentwood, The Sachems, longwood, please she made a living off of beating weak teams. Nice try though.

Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls Spring 2012 High School Varsity Lacrosse - 04/08/12 12:18 PM
I am not a hater, but in high school girls lax you should not leave your starters in the second half with a huge lead. I am not questioning her coaching abilities, but she should take her foot off the gas pedal with a huge lead "Period". I know you Northport parents think someones individual scoring records mean more than showing sportsmanship to the other team, but in my and a great many other parents humble opinions it does not.

Maybe it is time the "Coach" takes her talents to the college level since others from Northport have citied so many lopsided college scores when defending their coach.

Best of luck to all teams the rest of the season, there are a few schools that may be poised to take the crown this season.

I watched this happen in the smith town west game . Northport subs an entire team to watch smith town starters score 4 in a row. Where is sportsmanship in that?

do you think CR will be at this game??? jealousy.. Northport would should lose to these teams by 20. do you think GC would do that? nah probably pull back at half while score is 12 2

Classic riddle. Which came first?
You got some YJ parent giving all the credit of the garden city girls to CR, other parents calling the GC girls the better half of the YJ teams. Who even cares who are better or why. The real issue trying to be discussed here is where does a team take the foot off the pedal in a blowout. I personally like the 6 to 8 goal lead then match a team goal for goal, if you get to 20 and go over, so be it, at least it has the other team on the board in double digits. As far as someone mentioning CR going to college where this kind of behavior is accepted, think again. Look at this Florida win over Fresno, the firestorm surrounding this game makes the northport runup look like nothing. So there really is no place for this kind of poor sportsmanship.

I know Powder and her daughter , and she is very good. At least powder is teaching her daughter to stand up and face her protractors, where as you kid has been taught to hide in the shadows and throw out nasty statements about children. Now I know that, in true Yellow Jacket/ Northport fashion your going to start hurling nasty statement about my daughter and I , so just let me say this , Not only has my daughter been playing varsity lacrosse since she was a freshman at a very good lacrosse school, But yes she has been playing on a Liberty Black team where you cant just simply buy your way into the pinnie, and then brag about how she is a part of that team.

Well if you look at Newsday's leading scoring list, other HS programs are racking up the points and pounding their opponents. Point fingers at the other HS coaches.

Northport doesn't even have one girl on the top 25 list.

No subs made in Hauppauge blowout with there leading scorer getting 7+. Starters in for Stonybrook getting 10 points. Really that commack score wasn't even bad this is ridiculous.

I know Powder and her daughter , and she is very good. At least powder is teaching her daughter to stand up and face her protractors, where as you kid has been taught to hide in the shadows and throw out nasty statements about children. Now I know that, in true Yellow Jacket/ Northport fashion your going to start hurling nasty statement about my daughter and I , so just let me say this , Not only has my daughter been playing varsity lacrosse since she was a freshman at a very good lacrosse school, But yes she has been playing on a Liberty Black team where you cant just simply buy your way into the pinnie, and then brag about how she is a part of that team.


I believe the word you are looking for is "detractors" not protractors. Liberty dad, you are always good for a laugh!!

this comment is from a northport parent, someone with no clue
I don't know anything about about how many Shannon scored against a high school team, but I sure hope she scores 20 against Florida, 29-0 at any level is , at least , un-sportsman like. I saw someone said 6-8, well i have seen teams come back from that, so that might be too few, I think at 10 , if you can, go goal for goal, and put 2nd stringers in, If they come back a little split the 2nd and 1st stringers. Every coach is different but to score 29 against Fresno is in poor taste. Florida better watch out because they put a target on there back with the big schools still on the schedule

Maybe it is time the "Coach" takes her talents to the college level since others from Northport have citied so many lopsided college scores when defending their coach.

Best of luck to all teams the rest of the season, there are a few schools that may be poised to take the crown this season.


Not a north port parent- I'm in your division

You are confusing an individual sport with team sports. And as a track parent, I can tell you that there aren't too many PRs when competing against a much weaker opponent. (PR - personal record)

IMHO, if there is a huge discrepancy in scores then that's when the non-starters should get their chance to play and hopefully step up and shine. It's a golden opportunity to develop the bench and boost morale overall. Give the non-starters some game time and let the starters take their turn on the bench, cheering for the team. And FTR, in my perfect world, that would go for both teams, the winner and the loser. If it's not a close game, clear the bench and you can always sub in your starters if it becomes a close game.

I have a kid playing in college, and let me assure you that college coaches are not going to be impressed by big numbers against weak opponents. Is it impressive winning a bracket in a tournament while you're in the weakest bracket? Not so much.

I don't believe it either. Why on earth would she take a college job when she makes far more money than she could doing that with her club, tournaments, camps, training, recruiting, etc.......... she is the head of a gigantic money making racket, college coaching would be a step backwards.

Unfortunately there are schools that have "weak" lacrosse programs, and most parents here do not wish to offend. I truly believe that if your daughter is in one of these traditionally "weak" Lacrosse schools it is no reflection on her, but more on the district. I personally know girls from these schools that are very talented players and only lack guidance from a talented coach. The districts and unions are to blame for lesser talented coaches being given coaching jobs because of seniority, and because its an easy way for them to make extra money. IMO this is robbing the kids from all sports the opportunity to excel and thrive in a sport that they love. Unfortunately, politics play a large role in High School athletics.

Interesting. You seem to "know" a great deal about this situation. How would you know the salary involved? Did ex-head coach Joe Spallina share this information? Did you get an indication of salary from Adelphi's AD?

But naming the schools isn't cool at all. Like many of the girls have a choice of where they must attend. And you are right; my daughter does attend a school with a "weaker" program.....thank goodness that she had the guidance to negotiate the recruiting process and landed a good fit in college. Unfortunately; she can and will put up numbers that anywhere else in the country will get her All-State at the least; but won't get any recognition here.

What in the world are you talking about??? Nortport going down? What do you think it is a college where she can recruit to have a strong team every year? Sometimes you need to regroup depending on the kids that graduated and who is coming up. Just shows how you know nothing about lacrosse she was never in contention for the adelphi job- way too busy

Congratulations to your daughter for the hard work and dedication in achieving her goal, I am sure she is a good girl and deserves all the accolades she does not receive. With that being said, weaker schools are out there, and just like it's not your fault, it's not ours either. To say that West Islip will not crush Brentwood because Bentwood is weak isn't said in a bad way towards the girls. and quite frankly, almost every town has P.A.L. teams and middle school teams. Now at the P.A.L. level you don't have much choice, but in middle school you do have a voice, if you choose not to use that voice and go to the administration and demand better coaches for your girls then you will never get better trained girls for your varsity teams. Have you gone back , after your daughter left middle school to help change the coaches or do you have the "my daughter is done, it's not my problem anymore" attitude, because if you do than its your fault the program is weak. Remember the schools work for us, we don't work for them

Of course she can recruit, How many on school team do not play YJ club. That is all the recruiting she needs. She can practice school ball all year under the YJ banner.And the thought of The coach making only thirty thousand in college is a ridiculas. YJ money could feed an entire country in Africa for years. This is about doing thee right thing at schoolball level. If this was club ball no one would say a thing.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls Spring 2012 High School Varsity Lacrosse - 04/09/12 12:45 PM
She make more money with less stress and better better benefits at the high school level. Tenure and reputation will allow her to stay as long as she likes.

Also frees up her nights and weekends to keep the YJ money train rolling.

College would be less cash, more time issues and big time conflicts with YJ's.

Since when do parents have a choice in how athletic programs are run? Coaches act as if they are the parents; and if any issues arise, they hide behind the district AD and take it out on the kid.

Honestly.....I'm a football guy and my expertise in lacrosse is limited....so I wouldn't be much help anyway. And yes; politics are the root of the problem. My daughter's program has a culture of accepting losing and EVERYONE(players, parents, and the AD of whom is a football guy as well) has accepted the fact that the team is and will remain poor.

I know it not your fault; but to call out schools of being weak isn't classy at all. That's my point. It's about the girls...not parental braggadocio!

It is bad sportsmanship. But what do you expect when a YJ coach is on the Huntington Staff. Only 4 girls from Huntington scored a goal or even had an assist.

There public servants. If you let them bully you than thats on you. All of them Including the A.D. and the Superintendent are paid by you and every other parent in the system. Don't let these people con you.
Now quite frankly we don't live in a traditional football hotspot. I can't understand why, on Long Island, a lacrosse hotbed for decades, any A.D. will spend more money on football than lacrosse.

NO KIDDING! It's like that in my district, too, and our football team pretty much stinks.

As for demanding better coaches, HAHAHA. In my district, any teacher who wants the coaching job gets it before it's offered outside the district. And not once that I know of has any coach been let go, that job is theirs for as long as they want it, regardless of wins/losses, crazy stunts, whatever. It absolutely stinks. We have spoken to our AD about a coach (not lax), laid out all the problems, were told that the AD would look into it. Lather, rinse, repeat. Nothing happens. By junior or senior year, no one will play for this coach, kids quit mid-year, AD knows, coach stays put. So, so frustrating as a player and a parent.

Sachem is worse. You have to kiss the ring of a Elementary Schools principles husband. to get your kid a shot at varsity, and if you do she still has to sit behind there undeserving , not nearly good enough 8th grader. We have a Jr. goalie that is very good, but she either sits or has to play behind a sophomore , that isn't half as good, (but friends with the husband,) because her dad and the afore mentioned husband have a conflict. These People are real low class bullies, guess who they play summer ball for

ok, let's say there was no winners or losers and no score being kept. Don't want to upset anyone, that would be bad sportsmanship.

I am amazed at the amount of time spent on these boards talking about Carol Rose. Doesn't matter what board it is, she seems to come up. I think too many people are obsessed with this lady. Enough already. I am a parent of a girl who doesn't play for yellow jackets and doesn't play for Northport. She is very happy with where she is, and so are we. My advise to those who don't like Carol Rose. Please stop complaining about her. Go out and cheer on your daughters and the other girls on the field. If you're happy not playing for her, which most people who have something to say about her state, then stop paying so much attention to her.

On the High School front. Most people are correct about the bad coaching at the school level and all, but I don't think that is the only issue. Most girls who play and excel in this sport started out in a youth program. Most of the better school teams have sucessful youth programs and work from there. Although most teams that are good at the school level have successful travel players to build around, their middle level players are pretty good too. This is because of the success of the youth teams. I'm not trying to say the school coaches should get a pass, they shouldn't, but alot of a teams success starts out when they are much younger.

That is very easy for you to say. Is your daughter's HS coach also a YJ coach? If not you don't know what we are dealing with. Most of us are afraid to say anything about the politics because our kids would be blackballed.

"I do not have a horse in this race"

But, I am amazed so many people are putting their daughter and families in this situation.

Love the lesson you're teahcing them. If you get bullied keep your mouth shut.

I am not sure that was the same way you dreamed to raise them before they picked up their sticks.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls Spring 2012 High School Varsity Lacrosse - 04/10/12 05:03 PM
Here is the lesson to be learned that seems to be lost nowadays.
If your child is not getting playing time it quite possibly may be political. You have an opportunity to teach your child to keep quiet and work even harder and possibly for a long time. If the skill level improves and she becomes better than another "politically connected" kid then she should see increased playing time and opportunities. I would think any coach would want to improve their team and misusing resources based on political opinions is foolish and very noticeable. BTW...if she does work hard and improve and the coach STILL does not use her properly then she gained several things. 1-improved skills and confidence in her ability, 2-the ability to excel in club ball or skills camps and finally, 3-the knowledge that she didn't let an immature coach or difficult situation prevent her from improving...ALL GREAT ATTRIBUTES TO HAVE FOR THE REAL WORLD. Keep in mind the alternative approach of complaining, arguing and bad mouthing is heard and emulated by your kids...all of which gets you no where. Just a thought...

YJ Parent to CR: "Put my kid on Blue "A" or I am going to Top Guns."

Poof!! Kid moved up. Totally disgraceful, because many parents would not threaten like that and they are the ones who get shafted.

Politics and threats seem to be the words that work at the YJs.

All things the same (or close) the reality is - political or friendly ties will always win out.

A HS coach SHOULD always want to put the best team on the field. But "best" takes on a lot of meaning. In best you never know what weighs more Skill or Attitude.

If you feel your child is not getting the play time they deserve, sit your child down let them know this not only happens in HS on the fields but on the stage for those students in the arts, some students may not get into a college of their choice (academically) only to have their friend and neighbor (who is not as qualified) get in. It happens its life.

But here you do have a voice and never silence it. If you feel you are in the right and confused on the actions, have the player reach out and have an adult conversation with the coach. Have them ask what can be done to see more time on the field. If you feel you need to be present when the conversation happens (bcause it has already gotten to this level) by all means get involved as a witness and mentor to guide your child after the conversation.

But be careful, you may not like what you hear. You may hear a lot more work is involved than you thought. You may have to take of those "Rose colored Glasses".

Sounds like a job for Dr. Richard D. Ginsburg.

Just remember you are asking to take playing time away from another child (potential friend/neighbor) who may question what just happened.

Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls Spring 2012 High School Varsity Lacrosse - 04/10/12 08:32 PM
Its not a YJ thing its a life thing. Unfortunately its reality and we have to find our way to navigate through it. Just saying there is a choice here. I have had to make that choice for myself and my kids in the past so it is not just words. There are ways and lessons to be learned handling it both ways. Either join the group and swallow your pride as many do OR work hard enough to make the group realize they may have been wrong. Just saying to pick one. Preferably the second because imagine the feeling she will have when she overcomes the prejudice and excels!! Bashing the system at your school/club...however justified...doesn't get the results you want. The hard work avenue at least gets great results even if the group doesn't accept her. She will have gained something valuable (determination, improved skills, work habits and self respect)in spite of them which is a good byproduct. Hope it helps. BTW...many clubs would love a kid who is a hard worker!

So your saying go ask the person that just shafted your daughter, very politely, why your daughter got shafted. And they say your daughter needs to work harder, your supposed to believe the word of the person that just shafted your daughter. That sounds stupid. They just screwed her and you expect them to say I know your daughter is better, but this girl has better connections then you , sorry.

You people are so clueless, if your kid is not getting playing time it is because the coach does not think she will help them win more then the kid who is playing .It is rare to meet the parent who has a realistic view of their kids ability and most parents are clueless, maybe your kid just is not as good as you think.

You are the one that is clueless. I know for a fact in Sachem East there are 2 goalies, the goalie getting most of the playing time is a "friend of a friend", and not nearly as good as the other. You need proof, look at the game against W.I. , they gave her 4 stops for that game , but in truth if she had 1 , she was lucky, Need more proof look at the 8th grader they have playing, daughter of a principle in the district, She's reckless, dangerous, and immature. She runs up the field without even looking to pass and takes poor, low percentage shots,or runs into double teams and loses possession . Not to mention a poor defender. Far to small and under developed to be running mid-field on a varsity team. Especially when there are older better developed players on the bench. East went up 4 goals early, but as soon as this player showed up, it became a consistent man down on the D end and W.I . took advantage

That's great for you and your son. A very simple student / teacher relationship that seems straight forward and positive, and you get to see her at her best, far, far removed from the politics of what many people on these threads are venting about. But think about her position as a director of a club and a coach of a school team. She has impacted thousands of parents and players over the years, for the better and for the worse. Many people, like yourself, sing nothing but praises of her, that's great and consider yourself lucky. Many other people can tell you horror stories of dealings with her, consider them unlucky. Like the old saying goes, there are two sides to every story, just because your sons dealings with her in a gym class is all happy puppies, butterflies and roses, this does not translate into the same experience for everybody else.

All I read here are accusations as to how horrible she is.... Not a single person has ever stated anything bad that she has done. All I ever see is how successful she is, how successful her players are and how much she has put into girls lacrosse. This coach is well respected and highly regarded across the country. Not to mention how much money she gives back and how many community sponsored fundraisers she is involved in.

Now your the one with rose colored glasses , I have posted , along with others how she has treated new players, girls that don't play for her, and other teams directors and players. that is what makes you a flunky. you refuse to admit that though she might do good by you, She treats others unfairly, and I refuse to believe that because Carol rose tells some girl that she cant play on her blue team that make that girl a dad player, or not as good as blue players,like the rest of the flunkies sayEven Carol can let a good one slip through. Or maybe some really good players don't want to play for her. She is not as good a coach as everyone says she is , If you spend enough time coaching you'll get a lot of wins. So she has spent at least 15 years at Northport and has X amount of wins . It only took her entire tenure as head lacrosse coach to win states last year. so I guess you have another 15 years or so till the next one while Farmingdale does for the next few years. As far as the Jackets go, they win because Garden City is real good, not because of Carol Rose. So I again plead to Garden City start your own club, Carol Rose is using your girls, there going to top colleges because of Garden City, not Carol Rose or the Yellow Jackets
I hope this was not written by an adult. Nice job calling out an eighth grader who plays the best she can and as hard as she can and has nothing to do with politics.The fact that you blame this kid for your loss to WI just shows how completely clueless you are.The fact that you do this anonymously about one of you or your child's teammates shows what a coward you are. It seems to me you are probably just insanely jealous of this kid and her big sister that you feel the need to lash out at them to make you feel better about yourself or your daughter and her lack of playing time and ability.Anyone interested can watch the game as it was on tv and will see the true reason WI won on that day,they were better then you guys. You may want to go thank that 8 th graders big sister because without her that game is not even competitive.

Brutally unfair to assess coaching ability based on winning the States tournament. Bob Hartranft at Farmingdale won his first title with the boys last year after 43 years at the helm. Getting to the High School coaching pinnacle even once is a lifetime achievement whether with the Northport Girls or Farmingdale Boys.

Agreed - this thread has dissected the Northport 22-8 game with all the comparisons to other Varsity games, club games, college results, and coaching issues. Getting back on track, this thread is returning to the High School games and their results.

It seems to me you are probably just insanely jealous of this kid and her big sister that you feel the need to lash out at them to make you feel better about yourself or your daughter and her lack of playing time and ability.Anyone interested can watch the game as it was on tv and will see the true reason WI won on that day,they were better then you guys. You may want to go thank that 8 th graders big sister because without her that game is not even competitive.
Nothing to do with politics? The only reason she's on varsity is because of her last name. Thats all politics.I never said anything about her sister or her abilities. I will be the first to say she is very good, but you saw that game you know the younger sister doesn't belong on varsity yet. Don't blame me I didn't put her there. Sorry, if you put her out there to get the accolades, then you risk the scorn. There are freshman on J.V. that deserve that spot. you stole it so don't cry now
Once again showing you are clueless ,I do not know the kid and have nothing to do with her being moved up but my guess is you were to gutless to deal to your coach about it.To be honest your team is doing better then most expected so your coach must know what she is doing.The jealousy is too obvious ,let it go the 8 th grade kid plays where she is told to play if you think her parents are the reason then complain to your AD or superintendent .Calling out an 8th grader on line is not the right thing to do.

That's great for you and your son. A very simple student / teacher relationship that seems straight forward and positive, and you get to see her at her best, far, far removed from the politics of what many people on these threads are venting about. But think about her position as a director of a club and a coach of a school team. She has impacted thousands of parents and players over the years, for the better and for the worse. Many people, like yourself, sing nothing but praises of her, that's great and consider yourself lucky. Many other people can tell you horror stories of dealings with her, consider them unlucky. Like the old saying goes, there are two sides to every story, just because your sons dealings with her in a gym class is all happy puppies, butterflies and roses, this does not translate into the same experience for everybody else.


All I read here are accusations as to how horrible she is.... Not a single person has ever stated anything bad that she has done. All I ever see is how successful she is, how successful her players are and how much she has put into girls lacrosse. This coach is well respected and highly regarded across the country. Not to mention how much money she gives back and how many community sponsored fundraisers she is involved in.
Now your the one with rose colored glasses , I have posted , along with others how she has treated new players, girls that don't play for her, and other teams directors and players. that is what makes you a flunky. you refuse to admit that though she might do good by you, She treats others unfairly, and I refuse to believe that because Carol rose tells some girl that she cant play on her blue team that make that girl a dad player, or not as good as blue players,like the rest of the flunkies sayEven Carol can let a good one slip through. Or maybe some really good players don't want to play for her. She is not as good a coach as everyone says she is , If you spend enough time coaching you'll get a lot of wins. So she has spent at least 15 years at Northport and has X amount of wins . It only took her entire tenure as head lacrosse coach to win states last year. so I guess you have another 15 years or so till the next one while Farmingdale does for the next few years. As far as the Jackets go, they win because Garden City is real good, not because of Carol Rose. So I again plead to Garden City start your own club, Carol Rose is using your girls, there going to top colleges because of Garden City, not Carol Rose or the Yellow Jackets



You still have not said anything other than coach rose treats players bad and doesn't put them on her blue team. You are obviously disgruntled about something . Not everyone can be on the blue team. That is part of life - you make some teams and some you don't. Why are you trying to trash her reputation? Are you a coach with 300 wins? I doubt if. My daughter is on the blue team and not from garden city or northwest. My daughter is a great player because if coach rose. Post some facts and then maybe we will out some belief into your accusations. Until you post some facts I regard your posts as pure propaganda in trying to belittle coach rose. No one needs rose colored glasses to see through your garbage.

You telling me to go to the A.D. , and the Superintendent of a school, tell them that one of there principles is using there influence to elevate one of there children over other children. What do you think these people are going to do? Say I'm sorry Mr. & Mrs So and So, your correct, that principal is abusing there power and we'll correct this situation directly. No, I'll tell you what there going to say, "we'll check with the coach, (that doesn't want to rock the boat) and then blow smoke up your butt, and use there political power to bury the fact that there corrupt. So in response to me calling out an 8th grader I'll say this. I didn't use anyone to get ahead, I didn't step on anyone to get ahead, I didn't bully anyone to get ahead. Sachem did. IF they want to rob my daughter so one of there own can get ahead, then I'm going to use this forum to expose them if I can. Like B.O.T.C. says I have the freedom to tell my story. If you think I'm picking on an 8th grader your wrong . I'm picking on Sachem, and there picking on a bunch of 9th& 10th graders.

OK, Now that you have exposed Sachem and C.T. whats next....nothing. You are attempting to be covert but I guess we all knew already. You should certainly leave the kids out of it however. Put on the big girl undies and handle it like an adult-between adults and go to the school. Enough on this thread.

Not sure if i agree to let it go - this thread is to expose these things. As for saying they are doing better than expected... So. If I am reading this right the parent thinks they would be doing even better with another player.

Are you once again teaching your daughter to be complacent, be satisfied, so what, your not playing your best your still winning??? Not a good lesson, because next is why try, followed by my best isnt good enough.

Never be satisfied until you have done all you can.

Disagree this is a forum to do this.

What is good for one (by playing an 8th grader) is not good for the other (older player) who may derseve it more.

Be real, that is what this forum is used for to expose these things because you cant go to the schools/admins/coaches.

Blow it open here, Blaze the trail anonymously, so it doesnt happen in years to come.

What makes you think that coach rose does not care about any other teams except for the blue. Have you looked at the 2013 verbal list ? My daughter was a gold player her first year and worked her butt off because she wanted to be on the blue team . She puts in a lot of time and effort and it has paid off. As for the 2015 come on you know who is really coaching that team. That team has been undefeated for over 100 games and that is all pm not the dad
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls Spring 2012 High School Varsity Lacrosse - 04/12/12 11:41 AM
How can you even comment about how she feels. You are again so jealous of her. Hope your loosing much sleep conjuring up all the nasty lies you can make up to attack her. Who cares who coaches that team it's optional to be a part of any of the teams. People are part of it because they WANT to be. I know it bothers you but your lies, nasty comments and attacks are not hurting the YJ program in the least. The kids are PROUD to be part of a special program and you can't do anything about it and it's driving you INSANE!! Stop bashing 8th graders too because that kid is awesome!!

This thread for HS lax sucks and has turned into the same CRAP as the YJ site.
Any additional posts discussing club lacrosse exclusively will be deleted. If you want to discuss a particular club program, use the appropriate threads here on the BOTC Main Forum. This thread should be used to discuss High School programs.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls Spring 2012 High School Varsity Lacrosse - 04/12/12 11:52 AM
I agree. HS Section 11 lax should focus on just that. This forum should not be for personal issues with your individual district because frankly unless you live in that district...WHO CARES!! Go to your board meeting and unload there. Maybe something will be done. I know I cant do anything about it sitting here in my basement in my drawers (sorry for the visual).

Bottom line is if a kid does not deserve to be on Varsity, she should not be on Varsity because you are hurting the kid who belongs there. How can anyone argue this?

No one is arguing that but maybe the 8th grader deserves to be on varsity more then moms little 9th grader. Maybe the 8th grader is better, maybe she works harder,maybe she plays year round, maybe she is just more gifted athletically.It always seems when a child excels at something there are always the people who cannot stand that some kid is excelling faster then there own child.

Calling out a 14 y/o girl and giving her team and jersey # is disgusting regardless of the situation. She is a child and whoever posted it should get theirs. Really now...how about you handle it like an adult. ALSO...BOTC should not allow those posts with detailed info about a child to be posted...just saying.

Would you like someone giving out your address or place of business? Maybe we would feel you don't deserve to live in your neighborhood or maybe we would critique your work performance and publicly post your faults and demand your dismissal. Probably wouldn't appreciate that is my guess.

BOTC felt that the jersey reference was sufficiently obscure (where could you look up the details) that the player was not identified. Apparently, those close to the discussion felt that too much information was being divulged. Hence, we have decided to remove the jersey reference.

Again, it is perfectly valid for an eighth grader to play High School Varsity sports if chosen by the coach and the player can pass the fairly rigorous physical requirements test. The discussion as to fielding the most competitive team versus having an automatic place on the Varsity team based on your class (senior, junior, and so forth) is a matter of district policy. For those who do not know, these policies absolutely vary between districts within the same county - and occasionally between sports within the same districts.

Maybe, maybe not. You can't discount the role politics plays in these moves though.

My district has a new JV coach who brought her 7th grade daughter up to play with her. We could discuss that load of baloney all day and get nowhere.

Easy, like this. Put an 8th grader on varsity and give her an edge in playing time over perhahps a more skilled and physical junior or senior. Does it make your team better on this particular day? Maybe not, but maybe the coach is concerned about making the team better three, four, five years down the road. Maybe they see something in the girl and want to spend the time developing her. Not everyone is completely concerned with winning the game in front of their nose, this may make great sense for the long term of the team. I have no knowledge of this particular situation, and it may be completely political, but you asked for a argument on the logic.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls Spring 2012 High School Varsity Lacrosse - 04/12/12 07:03 PM

The 8th grader is 2nd in points on your team, behind her sister. She must be doing something right. Last time I looked you need to have assists and score goals to win games.

Not everyone is completely concerned with winning the game in front of their nose, this may make great sense for the long term of the team. I have no knowledge of this particular situation, and it may be completely political, but you asked for a argument on the logic.

Bottom line is if a kid does not deserve to be on Varsity, she should not be on Varsity because you are hurting the kid who belongs there. How can anyone argue this?

The 8th grader is second in scoring because the words pass and teamwork are not in her vocabulary

Longwood vs Sachem North this afternoon.....a sudden death thriller won by Longwood 18-17......best game seen in years!

I see what you're saying but IME it still takes a skilled player of any age to single-handedly (as stated by you) to score. I've seen a lot of ball hogs get stuffed trying to hotdog it all by themselves.

That said, it is also my experience that when younger players get brought up they are less up to speed on the concept of teamwork as a whole.

Isn't that why they have J.V. My daughter played against them And The 8th grader didn't make them any better. Isn't that why you play a girl early? because they make your team better

No, its to make the player better. It makes the team better down the road. Happens in many programs all over the country.

Just make sure the kid plans to stay in your district. A few years ago, a coach (not girls and not lax) brought up five 8th graders who started over HS'rs. The coach's stated purpose was that he was "building a dynasty." After their 8th grade year, three of the five went to Catholic HS and one quit that sport to play another.

From the perspective of an overtime game where Longwood came back from a two goal deficit in overtime, the game was extremely competitive and worthwhile covering. BOTC and our readers spend a great deal of time covering the top end programs; occasionally, just seeing a single game for its own worth is valuable.

You know there are over 20 teams in div 1 they all have worthwhile girls who play great at times. Sometimes these girls play for average teams and are above average players who get no recognition because they are not from top programs. Don't be so arrogant. Look at the top 10 points leaders in Suffolk County. They don't all come from the top programs!! These programs and their girls deserve a little recognition too!

That 8th grader had 3 goals today in a 11-9 win against a good Hills team and that sophomore goalie you threw under the bus had an incredible game - the Fios MVP. Next year your daughter should go out for the softball team. Maybe you would be happier. She obviously will never see the field because she has no skill or athletic ability. Wake up and smell the coffee.

Hey unhappy Sachem East mommy or daddy - or should I say F.G? ....Did you see today's game result? you were there. The sophomore goalie you threw under the bus had 11 saves and was names MVP by Fios High School Sports and the 8th grader led the team in scoring with 3 goals and one assist. She now leads the team in assists. In other words, being a team player is in her vocabulary. The back up junior goalie did a nice job last year stepping up when the starting goalie broke her thumb, but the sophomore is more athletic and a better overall goalie. You hate her because she plays YJ club lax and lives in the block as the 8th grader. Shame on you for crying and whinning in public but keeping your name hidden. All the Sachem parents know who you are. Go SYAG!

my daughter plays on this team, they cant scoop up a ground ball ,they cant catch the ball and they cant past the ball without turning it over 30 times in a game. my other daughter 4 grade team plays better!!!! the head coach is pulling his hair out of his head, the assist coach is great, i cant say enough about him. I hope he stay a few years. what kill me about this team, were in every game at half time. This team lack team leadership ON THE FIELD and most important HEART!!!! Its so bad bad here that a few JV girls were ask to go to Varsity and they said NO because they winning at jv.

I know who F.G. is ,I also know his daughter. And I have to say your wrong. His Daughter is very good. She will play on a competitive college team, and she will do very well. Since you want to throw out initials here is one for you C.T. . he got the coach her job, yes the sophomore goalie is friends with his daughter and thats why she starts. That coupled with a feud between F.G. and C.T. Both the coach and C.T. should be ashamed of themselves for taking C.T's revenge out on a teen age girl. YOU ARE BOTH COWARDS!!!! In any other school district, the 8th grader plays j.v. at best . She is not a bad player but to small to defend , and to raw on attack, but because of mommy and daddy she's on varsity. Anybody that has a daughter that played youth lax in sachem knows the story behind C.T. and F.G. and for good reason they keep there mouth shut, we have all taken in the lesson. That family runs Sachem East Girls Lacrosse, and the district allows it. You either accept it, or risk having your daughter sit like F.G. And one last thing, how are you going to defend the out and out dirty play that same sophomore goalie pulled off with 5 seconds left in the game? her reckless play hurt that girl. Is that what Sachem East lacrosse is.

Based on the above theory, shouldn't you then have the entire Middle School team play JV or Varsity....It will make the kids better and tsubsequently, the team gets better down the road...

If the kid is one of the best 10-15 kids in the District and she is going to get plenty of touches, then she belongs on Varsity. If not, play age appropriate. Have her help her peers get better!

If you are going to make the argument that no 8th grader should be brought up then you are just plain wrong.There are some 8th graders that benefit and deserve to be brought up and by the stats it looks like she belongs, yes I understand the stats do not show the true picture.As far as her size give me a break I have seen many players who in person are small in stature but play big on the field .

Congratulations! GC has more players that are talented. What does that have to do with another HS that doesn't drawing from the middle school if needed? We scrimmaged Sachem East and the 8 th grader was way better than most of the other kids on that team! So if your REALLY talented 9th grader was left off the team it certainly wasn't because the 8th grader took her spot. There were plenty of other players that were less deserving to be on that team! She is 13/14 years old, God bless her she is a good player and I am sure worked very hard to earn that spot. It was obvious by her stick work!

What most people tend to think is that GC is consistently good because they get taught by the YJ's. But I agree with you. I think it is the other way around, where GC trains, and developes many skilled girls and YJ's or other clubs are lucky to get them.
Friday, April 13th Results

Sacred Heart upsets Vero Beach (FL), 15-14

Details via Newsday Report

Aileen Carey scored on an 8-meter shot with 1:41 left in the first overtime as Sacred Heart edged Florida’s Vero Beach, 15-14, last night.

Becky Conto had forced overtime, scoring off a pass from Chrissy Corcoran, with two seconds left in regulation for Sacred Heart (6-0).

Vero Beach (14-2) was ranked 10th in the country by ESPN Rise and its only prior loss was to top-ranked McDonogh (Md.). Sacred Heart had entered the game ranked 19th and likley propelled themselves a few spots.

Carey’s winner was her fourth goal of the game. Meghan Breen added three goals, Maggie Comiskey and Erin Pfail each had two goals and an assist, and Nina Corcoran had a goal and four assists. Emma Salter made 13 saves and Kerriann Moran, Meghan Ginty and Annie Westlake anchored the Spartans defense.

Sacred Heart had beaten Lake Brantley, 16-7, on Tuesday in its first of three games against Florida’s top teams. They’ll conclude the road trip on Thursday night, taking on Bishop Moore in LarryMiller.

I think what the goalie did was a smart, and athletic move/decision,not just that play but throughout the whole game she was smart in what she did. Goalies are not just made to sit in the cage anymore. Its a new style of play to have goalies come out, almost as a 5th defender. It truly showed her athletic abilities running out and intercepting passes, and quite frankly if you don't like the style of play stop watching lacrosse because theres a goalie revolution!

Really, jumping on the back of a field player, causing her to get hurt, putting a player on the 8 with the goalie 4 meters behind, and giving a a goal is a smart play to you?

Yes it was a good play who cares about the 8 meter shot there was .6 seconds left. In essence Hills wasn't going to win anyways and you cant go back and change what she did, anyway Sachem won the game is over.

East is 8-1 overall now. They should have and could have beat West Islip but they didn't come out and play like they can and should have. No that's not an excuse, but every team has those days. As for winning to 4 of the worst teams in Suffolk, yes they have had a somewhat easy schedule so far by playing brentwood, copiague and walt whitman. But William Floyd is usually one of the elite teams. Miller Place, there first non-league game, is not too shabby of a team. Comsewogue, there second non-league game, is not a bad team as well. They just recently beat Half Hollow Hills who is a good team and this past weekend they beat Sachem North one of there biggest rivals. Sachem East is stepping up and becoming one of those powerhouses slowly but surely. Whether or not they played some mediocre teams, the powerhouses like Ward Melville have played mediocre teams as well. As for the 8th grader, she is an awesome player and deserves to be on that team and I can say so myself because I am one of her teammates. As for the goalie, she is a phenomenal goalie and deserves to be in the cage as well. Whether there close with the A.D or the coach, there talent surpasses the politics that may be going on in Sachem.

The goalie stepped out of the cage to try and intercept that pass. She did not go out and do it on purpose to hurt the Hills girl. She does in practice as well, she's not a dirty player she's just an athletic player. She users her athleticism to help out the defense, it's being smart. The girl may have fallen down, but she was fine afterwards. The attacker could have fallen and gotten hurt if it was a defender going at her instead of the goalie. The goalie was just doing her job.

East is 8-1 overall now. They should have and could have beat West Islip but they didn't come out and play like they can and should have. No that's not an excuse, but every team has those days. As for winning to 4 of the worst teams in Suffolk, yes they have had a somewhat easy schedule so far by playing brentwood, copiague and walt whitman. But William Floyd is usually one of the elite teams. Miller Place, there first non-league game, is not too shabby of a team. Comsewogue, there second non-league game, is not a bad team as well. They just recently beat Half Hollow Hills who is a good team and this past weekend they beat Sachem North one of there biggest rivals. Sachem East is stepping up and becoming one of those powerhouses slowly but surely. Whether or not they played some mediocre teams, the powerhouses like Ward Melville have played mediocre teams as well. As for the 8th grader, she is an awesome player and deserves to be on that team and I can say so myself because I am one of her teammates. As for the goalie, she is a phenomenal goalie and deserves to be in the cage as well. Whether there close with the A.D or the coach, there talent surpasses the politics that may be going on in Sachem.


Every team has one of those days, when they play a better team.

Little disappointed thought Esm would be better- swr played exceptionally well

The positive comments concerning the game is refreshing and encouraging. Hope it keeps up. I am an ESM parent and even though our team lost it was a good game. The kids played well and kudos to SWR.

Yes glad the comments are postive and both teams played well and Esm and SWR should be proud of how they played. Great game!

What most people tend to think is that GC is consistently good because they get taught by the YJ's. But I agree with you. I think it is the other way around, where GC trains, and developes many skilled girls and YJ's or other clubs are lucky to get them.


Wrong, although you's like to think so. The GC youth program is parent coached. The best players in 6,7,8 grade play for the club teams which is where they learn the game. If these players did not play Club Lax and relied on the GC parent coaches they would be nowhere.

Most likely it is from playing Club...probably does't hurt to have friends in High places.

Your opening your mouth but do you even know anything about the Sachem East program or did you even watch the game? It was quite obvious that East was the better team that day they just lost their groove just like many teams do. It happens, you can't expect teams to be perfect every single game everyone has there off days. Hopefully East gets the chance to play West Islip in the playoffs to prove to people like you who like to run their mouths what they're really made of. I really hope that your a kid on a high school team and not a parent because if you are, shame on you. East is a good program this year and can compete, so be ready.

You just proved 2 things.
1 you are new to lacrosse, Everyone knows that Garden City has been a lacrosse powerhouse, in the boys game for nearly 100 years, and n the girls game for at least 30, well before there was even a dream of travel lacrosse.

2, you know nothing of Garden City (or Manhasset for that matter). Most parents came up through the G.C. system and moved back. Or , most parent coaches from G.C. played the game at a very high level , and know the game better than then some high school coaches.

Actually, you are wrong. My daughters PAL coaches both played lacrosse in college so she is learning a lot with out being on a club. GC is filled with parents who were athletes and now share their knowledge. ARe there some parent coaches who do not know the game as well, yes.

The goalie stepped out of the cage to try and intercept that pass. She did not go out and do it on purpose to hurt the Hills girl. She does in practice as well, she's not a dirty player she's just an athletic player. She users her athleticism to help out the defense, it's being smart. The girl may have fallen down, but she was fine afterwards. The attacker could have fallen and gotten hurt if it was a defender going at her instead of the goalie. The goalie was just doing her job.
what happened today Super goalie got out played by a back up , so lets here your lame excuses, really good goalies are consistent , your going to get shelled against bay Shore, you can't play the top teams

If you don't live in G.C. maybe you should leave their defense to themselves. Unless of course you are (a) An out of work lawyer who needs an outlet, (b) Totally alone and in need of some self inflicted drama to make you feel alive, or (c) Someone who has been controlled by a dominating spouse and finally has something to say (if that's the case I applaud your victory over abuse but please spare us the journey, they have therapy for that.) Either way let it go.

I think it is time to stop with all the Sachem East and Garden City Bashing. First off, Wake up people, Garden City is a great HS team and they must do something very well at the local level to sustain their dominance year after year. Class team class program, End of conversation. Everything else is sour grapes.

Sachem East, all you Sachem parents get over it. Enjoy your season, you are doing well. You are trying to play the games on this board, You can't win here only lose. You do not hear any of the teams that are winning big this year bragging except for you guys. You do not hear a peep out of Bay Shore, Hauppauge and Ward Melville. West Babylon could have said plenty when they beat Northport, but they didn't. Enjoy your daughters achievements win or lose. Your statemnents will not change a thing for them, it will only cause pain.. Peace to all.

You do not hear any of the teams that are winning big this year bragging except for you guys. You do not hear a peep out of Bay Shore, Hauppauge and Ward Melville. West Babylon could have said plenty when they beat Northport, but they didn't. Enjoy your daughters achievements win or lose. Your statemnents will not change a thing for them, it will only cause pain.. Peace to all.

You are correct. GC is a GREAT program and has been for years. There has been many posts stating that the YJ's are only good because of the GC girls. In the past many of the "Studs" on the YJ teams have been GC kids. All the praise was and is well deserved, but if you look at the YJ teams now (esp 2014,2015) there are a couple of very good players in those age groups, but certainly not the "studs" on the teams! I think you will see that in the next couple of years that this is true! None of that takes away any of their accomplishments!

Best player on the team? Maybe in 5th and 6th grade. She is not the best player on the team! No knock on her! When is the last time you watched that team? She also is never playing lax at GC! She was the Long Island runner of the year and will have a great future in track!

I am guessing this is a joke?
This upcoming weekend (April 21st/22nd) will be the Maryland-New [lacrosse] Girls Varsity Lacrosse Challenge. This event was organized through the St. Paul's (Maryland) girls lacrosse coach, Brook Kuhl-McClelland, and will see four top Maryland teams facing off with three of the top Long Island and one Upstate girls programs on Saturday and Sunday.

The pairings for the Saturday games are based on last season’s final LaxPower rankings. Sunday’s pairings will be decided based on the up-to-date power rankings after Saturday’s games. If the new rankings repeat the matchups, the teams will be shuffled so everyone gets a new opponent.

Saturday's schedule includes the following four matches :

St. Paul’s vs. Hauppauge, 10
Bryn Mawr vs. St. Anthony’s, noon
John Carroll vs. West Genesee, 2
McDonogh vs. Garden City, 4

The McDonogh/Garden City match has been in the planning for more than one year. While Garden City has lost their four All-Americans from last season (2011), this still figures to be an outstanding match with two of the top teams in the nation.

For those interested, MSG Varsity's Tuesday Girls Lacrosse update program did a nice job reviewing both this upcoming tournament and several key matches over the last week. Tracy Wiener was one of the in-studio commentators and provided an excellent deep-dive for those interested in the pregame details on these clubs.

Based on the current MSG Varsity planned programming schedule these games will not be televised live or rebroadcast. If anyone is aware of local outlets in the Maryland area that might be providing live coverage, please share the links. BOTC will see what we can find along with this call for help.

Lets keep it classy Lady Marauders.

You have a great team. Those before you have paved a great path for you, continue to blaze the trail for those behind you. (You know there are plenty mini lady marauders out there)

Do not feed into this site's jabs. Win or lose act like a champion who belongs at the top when all is said and done.

Just continue to do your work on the field (and classroom).

Good Luck!

Ward Melville Vs Middle Country, Middle Country up by 3 goals at one point. Some questionable calls by refs and rough play at the end gave Ward Melville the edge. Great battle Middle Country

i'm sorry sachem east I was wrong, I predicted bayshore would beat you by 10. it was bayshore 15 sachem east 6 ,do the math you lost by 9, but I also said if bayshore does not lay down. they clearly pulled back in 2nd half . it was 8 to 1 at the half. .. i dont hear you tonight. I also predict sachem east loses 3 out of next 5. you are 7 and 1 and have beaten nobody. you have the easiast schedule in division 1.

You all do realize that your criticizing young girls who are merely playing because they love the game? Doesn't matter how good the school is, how bad the school is, how bad people get beat. The girls are out there everyday putting in there best effort against teams. So Sachem East lost by 9, they still put in the effort. So what Northport isn't as great this year, the girls are still out there playing their hearts out. It's actually sickening that the people on this board are talking about high school students lacrosse teams like this. Teams lose and teams win. Some teams are great some teams are okay. The girls are out there for themselves and for the love of the game. No reason to criticize them for it because they lost by a certain amount of goals to a good team or because they lost some decent players so there not as well-off.

Are you people that dense ,I will go on the record and predict Bayshore is the best team in the country and every girl on the team will be getting full rides to D1 schools.So I guess you would now assume I am from Bayshore. There are people on this site just storing the pot , stop assuming you know the intentions of the poster.

Am I the only person here thinking this is one of the same parents that less than a week ago boasted how East and Northport are the greatest teams on L.I. Yes I agree that the girls are playing there harts out simply for the love of the game, but now you must agree that it's the parents that come on here boasting how there girl plays for this school, and will be attending this college, and plays for this club. You Must also agree that club ties, family ties , and school politics are hurting good players to advance there own agenda. All of this breeds animosity and jealousy. Now you going to say that there is nothing wrong with congratulating ones daughter and teammates , and I agree, I just think doing it on a web site seems a little braggadocios . My daughter plays and will attend a D1 college, I walked into her bedroom and congratulated her, when her friends got accepted to colleges, I congratulated them when I saw them at practice or games. Don't come here now like you above it all, your the cause of it all. Now reap what you sow

Don't think so, if you knew anything at all you'd know GC Girls did'nt win a Nassau County Championship until the mid-90's.

The Long Island Athletic Directors need to get together and teach some of these lacrosse coaches the meaning of class and sportsmanship. I am seeing too many coaches interested in padding the stats of their "super stars."

Some of these coaches are letting their "stars" continue to score and put up numbers when the game is out of reach.

One time in college one of our teammates scored his 3rd goal of the game against a really bad team to make the final score 18-3. Our team (along with the coaches) gave him a ton of crap for scoring an unnecessary goal. When are some of these coaches going to wake up? Thoughts?

Teach your kids the right thing - build character, build leaders.

Am I the only person here thinking this is one of the same parents that less than a week ago boasted how East and Northport are the greatest teams on L.I. Yes I agree that the girls are playing there harts out simply for the love of the game, but now you must agree that it's the parents that come on here boasting how there girl plays for this school, and will be attending this college, and plays for this club. You Must also agree that club ties, family ties , and school politics are hurting good players to advance there own agenda. All of this breeds animosity and jealousy. Now you going to say that there is nothing wrong with congratulating ones daughter and teammates , and I agree, I just think doing it on a web site seems a little braggadocios . My daughter plays and will attend a D1 college, I walked into her bedroom and congratulated her, when her friends got accepted to colleges, I congratulated them when I saw them at practice or games. Don't come here now like you above it all, your the cause of it all. Now reap what you sow



I'm the cause of it all? I want to clarify something for you since you think I'm some loud mouth parent who's stirring the pot on this website. I'm a senior high school student who went on here and read how ludicrous all of the people on this thread are acting. This thread was made so that people can be informed of the statistics of the 2012 lacrosse season. Not to bash teams, bash players, and criticize everything and anything about the game that the kids are playing. It seems like a lot of these parents, including you, are still caught up in your high school years of drama and gossip. My original post had nothing to do with congratulating people or anything, it had to do with the immaturity of the people posting on this thread. Your all bashing a bunch of 15-18 year olds when there just doing what they love, including me. Isn't it your jobs to teach us not to gossip, or bash people for what they do or where they come from? Maybe it's just me, but that's how I was raised and this thread is a poor example of how people are supposed to treat each other, especially when it's a bunch of grown-ups picking apart anything and everything about a bunch of teenagers. Oh and by the way, I go to East, and we may not be the best team in Suffolk or as great as Ward Melville or Bayshore. But we go out there with our heads up and try out best. Like any good athlete would do, just like Bayshore and all of the top ranked schools. Whether were at the top or not. So thanks for all of the criticism about us parents, it just pushes us to work harder everyday at practice.

By U.S. Lacrosse rules , After a team exceeds a 10 point differential the clock continues to run after goals, or balls out of bounds. There is no rule that states after 13 goals your supposed to match goal for goal, that is up to each coach.

If you are a S.E. player, and you read the posts, than you know no one has said anything about how hard you try, as a matter of fact , I am a parent of a S.E. player so I know how hard you girls try. With that said as A senior player for S.E. you above all els know how unfair and one sided that S.E. girls lax has become. I understand why you feel defensive, and admire how you have come on here to defend your team, but there are 2 things that hold true and you seem to overlook. 1 - it was one of our own that came on this site shooting off and boasting. 2- you know as well as I, the program is driven for the benefit of a few , mot everyone everyone equally.

Well said young lady! You ladies keep working hard and enjoying your season. You are doing great. You will learn in life you come across bullies in many different scenarios. You would hope High School sports would not be one of them. Learn from it, but don't ever let it get to you.

Thank god the kids are smarter than the crazy parents are. BOTC should be embarrassed to let these people come on and annonymously bash kids- it has gone too far when you let them identify kids - we all know who the kids are even if they are not mentioned by name. To the teen that wrote the above post kudos to you- you have a good head on your shoulders. Most of us let our kids play for the town we live in so the kids have no choice and make the best of it. Btw I am not from SE

Good to see a team doing something to keep the scoring in check. Hope you gave crap to the players who scored the last 6 or 7 goals in that game as they were all about the same situation as the guy you all targeted.

Are you kidding BOTC? You are supposed to moderate the posts and have continuously allowed posts identifying specific kids and allowed the damaging comments to be posted. But then again I am sure you think it makes for good drama and will draw people to your site, typical thought process for a media outlet I guess. Dont sit back and play dumb and say its not your responsibility as moderator to filter damaging posts aimed at teenage girls. You are responsible. Lets see if this makes it to the thread.

Maybe it's just me, but that's how I was raised and this thread is a poor example of how people are supposed to treat each other, especially when it's a bunch of grown-ups picking apart anything and everything about a bunch of teenagers. Oh and by the way, I go to East, and we may not be the best team in Suffolk or as great as Ward Melville or Bayshore. But we go out there with our heads up and try out best. Like any good athlete would do, just like Bayshore and all of the top ranked schools. Whether were at the top or not. So thanks for all of the criticism about us parents, it just pushes us to work harder everyday at practice.
If you are a S.E. player, and you read the posts, than you know no one has said anything about how hard you try, as a matter of fact , I am a parent of a S.E. player so I know how hard you girls try. With that said as A senior player for S.E. you above all els know how unfair and one sided that S.E. girls lax has become. I understand why you feel defensive, and admire how you have come on here to defend your team, but there are 2 things that hold true and you seem to overlook. 1 - it was one of our own that came on this site shooting off and boasting. 2- you know as well as I, the program is driven for the benefit of a few , mot everyone everyone equally.



I understand it was one of our own who came on here and began boasting about us, the post that I wrote went to everyone who has posted on this wall even if they are from Sachem as well. As for the team, yes some girls have gotten pulled up at a young age, but from playing with them they both deserved it. Yes there mother is a principal at a middle school and there father is friendly with some higher up people, but whether that helped them get on the team or not, they prove everyday during every game that they can play at this level besides there parents connections. They both have helped out our team a lot. As for the benefiting only a few people, I can't agree with that. We have a solid starting line-up and every girl who is starting and playing deserves the spot that they are in. The coaches are doing a great job with helping every player excel during practice to try and help them get the spot that they want. So no, I can't agree that our team is only being used to benefit a few people. Everyone has a fair shot at scoring and playing. The girls on the field deserve to be on the field. This is the last thing that I'm going to be posting though, because this isn't what this thread was made for.

Am I the only person here thinking this is one of the same parents that less than a week ago boasted how East and Northport are the greatest teams on L.I. Yes I agree that the girls are playing there harts out simply for the love of the game, but now you must agree that it's the parents that come on here boasting how there girl plays for this school, and will be attending this college, and plays for this club. You Must also agree that club ties, family ties , and school politics are hurting good players to advance there own agenda. All of this breeds animosity and jealousy. Now you going to say that there is nothing wrong with congratulating ones daughter and teammates , and I agree, I just think doing it on a web site seems a little braggadocios . My daughter plays and will attend a D1 college, I walked into her bedroom and congratulated her, when her friends got accepted to colleges, I congratulated them when I saw them at practice or games. Don't come here now like you above it all, your the cause of it all. Now reap what you sow




I'm the cause of it all? I want to clarify something for you since you think I'm some loud mouth parent who's stirring the pot on this website. I'm a senior high school student who went on here and read how ludicrous all of the people on this thread are acting. This thread was made so that people can be informed of the statistics of the 2012 lacrosse season. Not to bash teams, bash players, and criticize everything and anything about the game that the kids are playing. It seems like a lot of these parents, including you, are still caught up in your high school years of drama and gossip. My original post had nothing to do with congratulating people or anything, it had to do with the immaturity of the people posting on this thread.

Thank god the kids are smarter than the crazy parents are. BOTC should be embarrassed to let these people come on and annonymously bash kids- it has gone too far when you let them identify kids - we all know who the kids are even if they are not mentioned by name. To the teen that wrote the above post kudos to you- you have a good head on your shoulders. Most of us let our kids play for the town we live in so the kids have no choice and make the best of it. Btw I am not from SE



How do you know it is a teen? It is an anonymous poster.


It's clearly stated when the person wrote it.

BOTC is hosting a discussion, not creating the content to which you take offense. ...
Are you kidding BOTC? You are supposed to moderate the posts and have continuously allowed posts identifying specific kids and allowed the damaging comments to be posted.
Cloaked comments referring to players are the hardest to screen simply because you assume that our moderators have knowledge of each and every High School team down to the last player. As for damaging posts, you are completely wrong since you actually do not get to see what is removed.

You are not producing the content but there is an obligation to moderate it isn't there? In this age of social media we have seen teens and pre teens become the victims when they are targeted with devastating consequences. This thread is an example of how some people single out these kids with some pretty damaging comments. I am confident it could be classified as "bullying", RE: Rutgers. The consequences could be equally devastating. If BOTC acting as the moderator is not responsible for filtering these comments who is? Who is there to protect these young girls when parents (or anyone for that matter)decide to post their "opinions" no matter how hurtful?

That's sarcasm, right? Because I could come on here claiming to be Keith Hernandez but if I'm posting anonymously then who's to know? I, for one, have a hard time believing it's a HS'r posting considering she should be in class right now.

We don't need to go back and forth on the moral responsibility here. As an adult I will simply choose to "change the station". I understand your position. I only hope some of the young kids are not hurt by the noxious comments they may be too immature to process. Peace.

BOTC removed previous posts in this thread based on information shared in a subsequent unpublished post from the same "high school person" - the details contained in that note were sufficient for us to believe the postings to have been authentic to this point. However, we will end this part of the discussion in its entirety as a result.

You are quite a well spoken young lady, and I wish you the best of luck. I know and respect your decision to not reply, but what you fail to understand is that there are things that happened , and continue to happen in the "Back Office" that you do not know about , nor should you know about. Quite frankly it is between parents and the school district, and does not concern you. But that does not mean that there are not real issues with the way S.E. is conducting business with tax payer dollars. In my opinion , this is part of the reason web sites like this exist. Not only to report the good things , but to expose the bad. I , and other parents , have tried to talk with the district, but they refuse to take any meaningful action to our request. They continue to sweep it under the rug , and dismiss our claims.

What exactly are the benefits of registering as a user? No one uses their real name so you don't know who they are anyway. If you are the moderator of a thread your moral responsibility is to keep it in check. If <<removed>> I am sure this discussion would be different. Many posts are never even put through. Take some responsibility and truly moderate. Readers should also be aware that this is a business venture as well.

What you see as a user handle on the BOTC Message Board might not tell most readers who the actual person might be, but it establishes identity within threads as to owners of statements. Further, the registration process provides additional information to us here at BOTC. We can use that information to clarify posted positions if needed. The Board Rules discuss this in some detail.

However, that was not good enough - you raised the issue again with the player reference. We have changed your post to remove the player(s) in question.

You state that many posts are "never put through" like you are part of the operations team at BOTC. Simply put, you are out of your league on this entire topic.

You are correct - we were calling around for results of that key match-up last night and did not have the score until early this morning. Thanks for reporting the results.

Bay Shore game??

Ward Melville took this match of undefeated Suffolk Division I titans on four goals from Emily Rogers-Healion. Ward Melville scored four late goals in the first half to open a six goal lead at the break, 7-1. Ward Melville was nine-for-nine on faceoffs in the first stanza.

Bay Shore closed the gap to two goals at 7-5 with approximately fifteen minutes remaining but the teams effectively traded goals down the stretch. Bay Shore outscores Ward Melville 6-3 in the second half.

This matchup still shines as one of the potential great post season games. Nice to see the emergence of Bay Shore this season to bring a fresh name into the Section XI mix.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls Spring 2012 High School Varsity Lacrosse - 04/21/12 03:56 PM
Bay Shore has always had a great program and have been quite successful in the past. They have some great players, the Melville game was a good one. Melville is always mentioned, but on the Boy's side not the Girl's. Nice to see that program coming together as well. Both teams are young and should be around for a few years to come. Good chance this was a preview of title game, but Northport is too good not to be heard from again. Should be a great finish to the season.

One time in college one of our teammates scored his 3rd goal of the game against a really bad team to make the final score 18-3. Our team (along with the coaches) gave him a ton of crap for scoring an unnecessary goal. When are some of these coaches going to wake up? Thoughts?

Teach your kids the right thing - build character, build leaders.


Northshore vs. Seaford game today was quite interesting today. NS's leading scorer never left the game even though they were up by 10 goals. Also some great sportsmanship in the stands when a fight broke out between parents.

McD is the real deal. They are incredible. Fun team team to watch. GC was completely overmatched. It is a big drop off from last year. This was their first real big test, they should get better from this. The SA vs BM was a surprise. SA seemed unprepared and completely rattled just like last year's big game against McD. SA has the most talent, not sure what happened. Hauppauge looked good vs SP. They have come a long way. WG proved that JC should not have been included. They have a losing record 5 - 6. MD Public schools prohibited from playing on Sunday so they could not be part of this.

This is a great idea. Tomorrow should be another great day.

fl$ is able to do this because they are For the Love of the Green. They are the most expensive program in the USA so they can afford to spend their "not for profit dollars" on two page ads in IL.

What we learned this weekend was that McDonogh is truly the top High School team from the New [lacrosse]/Maryland hotbeds. We also learned that Bryn Mawr was likely stronger than was thought prior to the tournament.

Regarding Garden City, every report including our on BOTC shows that McDonogh was unconscious on Saturday with every break and faceoff going their way. By all accounts, Hauppauge played well but was simply outgunned against a stronger opponent.

now thats a real spanking. ive been watching these LI teams for 3 or 4 years now, beating up on mostly everyone. although i was rooting for all of them this weekend against maryland, now they know how all the LI teams they been beating the pants off of feel . st anthonys lost by 8, garden city lost by 11 and 5, hauppauge lost by 13
Hard to argue with you. Sometimes it is good for teams to see the other side of the scoreboard and perspective. GC and McDonogh are just not in the same league. That was clear. SA supposedly had the most talent in the country with all these recruits. BM was not remotely expected to be able to play with them. SA jumped out to a 3 - 1 lead just like last year against McDonogh. Then BM applied pressure and that was it. A repeat of last year. They scored 11 straight goals which almost seems impossible. SA coaches and team had no idea what to do. BM showed everyone what a good team is all about. Before Saturday, wanted to see a McDonogh vs SA rematch but thankfully that did not occur. Hauppauge looked great the first game then had to play McDonogh. McDonogh took them out of their game from the first whistle.
Not sure if GC has ever lost more than 4 games in a year including playoffs. They have two now and have a long way to go and play SA in a week.
Hopefully, they do this again next year, it was a great event. McDonogh and BM were both very good and have to give credit to them.

The girls should be proud. (St. Anthony's aside) It is very hard to compete with private schools that can pull in talent from any town in a reasonable driving radius. To expect a public school to compete year in and year out with a school like McDonough is a tall order.The top talent will be similar and is evident by the success of the Long Island girls playing in college, but it is hard to have that kind of talent throughout your roster in a public school. In Hauppaugue and GC's case a "B" school. Programs like GC and Farmingdale are hard to find. I would like to see GC and Hauppauge play Marylands' best public schools and see how one sided the scores are.

Way to go Long Island. While the MD teams RECRUIT the best talent from multiple towns, 2 TOWN teams are in MD representing Long Island. The fact that a small school like Hauppauge can be down in MD representing Long Island is Fantastic. Way to go Eagles. Great Job. All Hauppauge girls .......come home with pride!!!

The amount of money spent and concentration on lacrosse in Garden City rivals most private schools. GC is loaded with private lax players from Yellow Jackets and other clubs.

Yes, but the point is they can still only draw players from inside the school districts boundries.

I have a question to the more-seasoned lacrosse parents here. Did any of your experience apathy within your daughter's team? My daughter's team is mostly concerned with everything high school EXCEPT lacrosse. And it shows with their lack of W's. My daughter comes home frustrated daily as her teammates have no repsect for anyone outside of their little clique; coaches included. Quitting is not an answer as my daughter is already committed(verbally) and does not want her future coach to view her in an unfavorable manner. What does a parent do in this situation?
Hauppauge should be proud. They have become a really good team. Their game against McDonogh as tough as it was will help them in the playoffs. St Anthony's was incredibly hyped and was a complete disappointment in their effort and preparation. They could not defend BM at all and BM is by no stretch a McDonogh. It was worse than the year before. Garden City played a team in McDonogh that was completely ready to play. The next two weeks, we will see what type of team GC really is. Maybe there should have been other teams involved but the challenge of this tournament is that the teams need to be picked way in advance for logistic reasons.
Exciting to watch. Games like this clearly reveal the strengths and weaknesses of teams, coaches, etc. It will never be perfect, but for the first time out this was pretty good.

Tell your daughter to hold on, play , and have as much fun as she can. When she gets to her college team it will get so much better.we all know losing is no fun, but tell her to not get lost in the wins and losses. Enjoy the game, do your best, have fun.

This is so funny. Glad my kid doesn't go to Sachem East. This spineless jellyfish should be ashamed of hiding behind the anonymous wall. All my girls played HS and college lacrosse at both Div. I and III schools. Not all were superstars in HS and I certainly didn't blame the world or make up lame excuses for them. Hey angry mom or dad, what are you going to do when your kid doesn't get into her first choice college or her dream job when (if) she graduates? Boo Hoo blame the system, blame Obama and Congress. You are a coward and the other parents should run you out of town. It's because of people like you that I tell my kids not to go into public education. White trash. Nice. I lost a lot of respect for the parents of Sachem for trashing their own athletes, coaches, and parents who work and volunteer in the community. I wish the team well and hope they aren't distracted by the posts of some stay at home mom or computer nerd who has too much time on their hands. I may sit in the Sachem section tomorrow vs 3V. I'll know in 5 minutes who the unhappy, pathetic parents are.

You sound just as angry and nasty as the sachem parents.

First of all if any of you believe that our daughters actually read this drivel you are wrong. Less then 10% of the viewers are actually players. The rest of us(me included) are living vicariously through our children.

I thought the sachem parents have quieted down nicely. I think the poster who calls them white trash is just trying to stir the pot. then again isn't that what this board is all about. Leave these teams alone, Win Lose or Draw all of these young ladies are benefitting from playing High School Sports. They will be better adults for it.

They lost by 3 to the only undefeated team in division 1. They haven't been saying anything all week. All the Sachem East drama is ended. So how about you stop adding into it and stirring the pot. Your picking on a bunch of high school students. They played an awesome game against Melville and that's all that matters.

This poll is absolutely ridiculous. Who does it St Anthony's and Garden City. Bryn Mawr showed that St Anthony's did not belong on the same field as them. Bryn Mawr handled GC pretty well also. McDongogh blows out GC. Maryvale is not even in the Top 10 and they lost by a goal to BM. Were in a close game with McDonogh until the second half. Yet St Anthony's and GC are in the Top 5. The only team in the Top 15 that St Anthony's beat is Sacred Heart (by 14), does Sacred Heart really belong in the Top 15 never mind top 30. Unlike MD, the private school league in Long Island is a joke. GC has not beaten anyone in the Top 15, they lose two games and they are still in the Top 5.
I am not saying that GC is not a talented team and the same with St Anthony's but the above does not make sense. They both had the opportunity in MD to show what they are capable of. They did not demonstrate that they were a Top 5 team.

Being a parent of a girl on a varsity lax team in the catholic league on L.I. i have to say this to this post, No it's not the strongest league , but thats not why our kids go to these schools. We send our kids there for the education, and it is the best you can get. With St. Anthony as the exception, these schools don't push sports as strong as your maryland schools but while your worried about 4-8 years of lax, and how many students you send to D1 schools , we're pushing out Ivy league students for educations that last a lifetime. So you can keep Maryland (grade 13-16), and have a great lax player. There going to work for my daughter when there done playing

Garden City have several head cases on their team this year, would'nt be surprised to see them fall more
Lets see if GC loses to St Anthony's , do they still stay in the Top 5. I looked at St Anthony's remaining schedule, they play no one. The only decent team they play is Sacred Heart and they already beat them by 14. Not sure what the point is. St Anthonys would lose to McDonogh by at least 15. GC is overrated. They get destroyed by Bryn Mawr and McDonogh. Now they will lose to SA, do they still stay in the Top 5.
If GC played down here they would not be Top 4 in the league same with St Anthony's. Both have great PR machines which I give them credit for.

As i stated on a previous thread regarding top rnaked players - NOT WORTH THE PAPER IT'S WRITTEN ON - it's all coaches and cronies pushing there own agenda/team/players, do you really believe that anyone is spending the time and money to properly scout all the HS programs in the country? never happened, they have there hands full just trying to handle college rankings, which are far from perfect, so take all this BS for what it's worth - nothing - perhaps some amusing conversations/blogs, but that's it.

Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls Spring 2012 High School Varsity Lacrosse - 04/28/12 05:15 PM
That is a very childish and ignorant Statement. The reason McDongagh is so good is because they are like the Stony Brook Schhol. The have on campus housing and all the girls play on the Same Club team. The coach owns a travel club and the girls play year round with each other. They recruit from all over Maryland. By the way it cost $50K a year to go to High School there. they better win.

It was expected that SA would beat Garden City. SA has a lot of speed and talent .
Potentially more than any team.
What was clear in Md was they were completely unprepared. GC was the same. It seems that SA thinks that they will get by on just talent and to a lesser degree GC is the same. Bryn Mawr and McDonogh have a completely different philosophy. I heard that GC actually played a game the day before the SA's game, that is crazy.
Question is does this Poll still keep GC in the Top 5

Ward Melville 15 HHH 6
Ward Melville is a good team. Unfortunately they do not have a PR machine. Look at Newsday,today, GC and SA are the two most hyped teams. The article points out that SA beat 3 nationally ranked teams in the last week. Every team is ranked nationally. John Carroll one of the 3 was 5 -7 and ranked 210. Then is says by losing to the PR machine last year GC, that SA missed out on being the number team in the nation. Did they forget that they played a young McDonogh team and were blown out. There was no repeat this year because they did not play.

The point is that it is not fair to the other teams. Bryn Mawr and Maryvale deserve the reputation of GC and SA. Given that BM scored 11 straight goals on SA and handled GC easily, they earned it. On the field results matter more than the spin of SA and GC. The article Sunday was the PR hype in full mode.

I respect what your saying, especially about S.A. . But as far as G.C. goes, they are a public school, unlike McDonogh who , as stated earlier , is more like a college team, and S.A. who basically pay kids to play. Though G.C. is having a down year this year you cant take away that they have won 6 straight N.Y. titles. Its not like we're talking about other states like Ohio or Florida, Both N.Y. and MD. have been hot-beds for lax since John Hopkins organized the sport, cut G.C. a break, there probably going to win the state again, unless Manhasset can beat them

Then is says by losing to the PR machine last year GC, that SA missed out on being the number team in the nation. Did they forget that they played a young McDonogh team and were blown out. There was no repeat this year because they did not play.

The point is that it is not fair to the other teams. Bryn Mawr and Maryvale deserve the reputation of GC and SA. Given that BM scored 11 straight goals on SA and handled GC easily, they earned it. On the field results matter more than the spin of SA and GC. The article Sunday was the PR hype in full mode.
I respect what your saying, especially about S.A. . But as far as G.C. goes, they are a public school, unlike McDonogh who , as stated earlier , is more like a college team, and S.A. who basically pay kids to play. Though G.C. is having a down year this year you cant take away that they have won 6 straight N.Y. titles. Its not like we're talking about other states like Ohio or Florida, Both N.Y. and MD. have been hot-beds for lax since John Hopkins organized the sport, cut G.C. a break, there probably going to win the state again, unless Manhasset can beat them

Hauppauge can play with them! No doubt! Should be an interesting game.
I do respect Garden City. I saw them play last year and they were unbelievably talented. What I am saying it should be acknowledged that this is a slightly down year but a very good team. I think that they have taken for granted what they have accomplished over the last few years which is significant. They scheduled a game on Fri then played SA on Sat, seems like they almost discounted SA. Yet with all these losses they will still be ranked really high. One win against a good team and they will be in the Top 5. What I am saying is that is not fair to other teams. BM lost to McDonogh and dropped significantly, they do not have the same PR leverage.

SA is a whole other level of PR. They give up 11 straight goals to BM. Now they are crowing that they beat John Carroll. They claimed in this article that if but a one goal loss to GC they would have been number one last year. They were steam rolled by McDonogh.

Both these teams GC and SA are very talented. SA has unbelievable talent. The difference between McDonogh, Bryn Mawr, and the rest of the league is that they prepare and get the most out of their players. For that they should get credit as well as other up and coming teams.

Truth is McDonogh shouldn't even be counted as a High School team, they are very unique . As I am to understand, and correct me if I'm wrong, those girls are in a school where they are recruited to play lacrosse, are boarded in the school, and pretty much play lacrosse year round for the same coach, be it during the entire school year for McDonogh, and then during the summer for the same coaches travel team. If that is true then that is an un even playing field. Further more, if it is true, than whatever team that the coach fields during the summer, can't compete with the L.I. teams at tourney when the playing field is leveled. As soon as L.I. teams also get to choose the best players from every school, we start to dominate. there is no school like McDonogh on L.I. if there were I feel they would be the dominate H.S. team
I think if it is easy to try and distort the picture. McDonogh has a great amount of talent. However the reason that McDonogh is such a great team is because of the commitment, preparation, and team philosophy. It was not long ago, they were nothing. What changed was coaching. The same coaching did exactly the same thing at Mt. Hebron a public school prior, beating everyone for years. No one could beat them. Getting kids to buy in is to the key.

The kids at Bryn Mawr are the same. On a pure talent basis, St Anthony's is better. Yet Bryn Mawr made them look like they did not belong on the same field. Bryn Mawr was completely prepared, played as a team, and executed. Bryn Mawr was down 3 1 and then scored 11 Straight Goals. How often does that ever ever happen.

The coaching at both McDonogh and Bryn Mawr is better. The teams are more prepared. Most important is that the kids buy in to the whole team philosophy. Watching what happened in Maryland two years in a row, I think that you could add five more top players on St Anthony's and they still would not get it done for the above reasons. Last year they were dismantled by a very young McDonogh team. St Anthony's gave up something like 9 straight goals. Two years in a row the same exact thing happened. There was clear finger pointing and no one seemed to know what to do both years.

I agree that McDonogh is an incredible team. That has happened over time and for all of the above reasons. Bryn Mawr to me is even more amazing for all of the reasons that you point out.
The league these teams play in is also an advantage. On any day any team can beat the other. Evidence of Bryn Mawr escaping with a one goal win.

Of course McDonogh and Bryn Mawr are better prepared , they do not have the same restrictions G.C. has. Both schools actively recruit players from all over Md. G.C. only has what is within the district. Yes G.C. has a very good feeder program in both P.A.L. and Middle School. but that is vastly different than seeking out the best players in the state and keeping them together year round for 6 years. In N.Y. you cannot train with your H.S. team/coach year round. If our coaches had that advantage , don't you think we would be a lot better. You seem to be ducking the summer question. It's the perfect example of a level playing field, and quite frankly, in that situation where we can gather all the best talent and put them on a team together, your girls can't do as well.

I was at this game, it was maybe the 3rd or 4th girls HS game I have seen in my life, I was very surprised by two things, 1) PW JV coach was coaching the PW girls from the spectators side of the field, when someone commented to a school supervisor they said that was OK since he was a JV coach, he was the only person allowed on the turf, parents were told to back off the turf and stand on the grass, this just seemed odd, and 2) with the score 11 - 6 and less the 2 minutes to play PW continually attacked the cage probably taking 6-8 shots in the last two minutes, while this is not against the rules it certainly seemed in bad taste, if girls lax is trying to emulate the the low standards set by boys lacrosse for sportsmanship PW certainly achieved their goal of boys quality bad sportsmanship.

Maybe they had girls in the game that don't play too much? Its HS sports get over it. There has to be a winner and a loser. Not everyone gets a ribbon.

There are other message boards on the internet where you will find the number of boys posts in a 10:1 ratio over girls posts. In short, the girls lacrosse market has been radically underserved from a program, news, and advertising perspective. Given that BOTC has focused on the local market in general and the Long Island Girls Varsity market specifically, we are addressing that niche.

There has been a lot of talk about coaches having conflicts of interest because of their hs jobs and their club jobs. How about this conflict of interest - how can a referee who runs their own club program be allowed to ref games where kids in his program are playing in a HS game?
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls Spring 2012 High School Varsity Lacrosse - 05/03/12 01:17 PM
That is a great question. It will be interesting to see if that person will once again be refing the Wantagh - GC game... severe conflict of interest!
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls Spring 2012 High School Varsity Lacrosse - 05/03/12 01:44 PM
St Anthonys keeps rolling along, now their Sophmores are starting to see more and more playing time and scoring some goals. Thats building the depth for this year and preping them for bigger responsbilities next year.

I know on our team the coaches have favorites. Even kids on the team know that some being played shouldn't be playing. It is kind of sad. Even sadder are the kids being favored, they don't know how bad they look out there.

does any one know the rules if a girl's goalie can score a goal like the boy's goalie do? I was told no because their pocket is illegal.

It Has to do with the goalie stick... it's not a legal field players stick ( due to the pocket ).. I think that the goalie could drop her stick and grab a field players stick I think they could score.. but I don't think the field player could pick up the goalie stick.

I dont think you will ever see it,

A goalie stick is an illegal stick for a field player to carry. Once the goalie is out of her crease, she is considered a field player and thus, must follow rules for field player stick. Her goalie stick is not legal.
But if she's out of the crease and therefore a field player and subject to field player stick rules, and her stick is illegal because of the pocket, why doesn't she become illegal as soon as she steps out of the crease?

My daughter is a goalie so we asked refs this question . A goalie stick is not illegal if it meets the length requirement, and the ball does not get stuck between the cradle of the stick and the mesh. because of the depth of the pocket, and the fact that she is the only player on her team that is fully padded, she gains an unfair advantage over all other field players. i.e. it is vastly more difficult for a player to check a ball from a goalie stick, and in a ground ball situation , or in going into the 8 , a goalie could go for the ball or the goal with greater veracity because she a lessened fear of injury. To keep everything even she can not cross into the attacking end of the field.

The stick is illegal for more reasons than just the length... Field stick cannot have shoe laces for shooting strings but for goalie crosse laces are allowed

Great job by the St. Anthony', Floral Park and New Hyde park coaching staffs for putting up such impressive points totals (22, 23 and 24 goals respectively) against inferior opponents.

You should be so proud!

You are 100% correct. Not everyone can get a trophy. However, every coach can win or lose with some class and some sportsmanship.
Huge congratulations to both the coaches of New Hyde Park and St. Anthony's. They should be acknowledged for never ever remotely underestimating an opponents ability to come back. Who knows, up by 15, you never know.

NHP had 3 girls who scored 18 goals of their goals. SA with the game totally out of hand, had their top players not only playing but scoring. They were up 10 to 1 at half and fortunately were able to really take it to them in the second half scoring 12 more.

There are probably a number of kids on both these teams that have not taken a shot all year never mind scored. NHP has 8 girls who have not scored at all, incredibly St Anthony's has 12.

Great job coaches.

hey why single out those three when a overwhelming number of teams beat their opponents by very large margins including rocky point,commack and hauppauge.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls Spring 2012 High School Varsity Lacrosse - 05/05/12 05:35 PM
There are ways of coaching knowing you are going to win, and pounding other teams. WHen the margin goes above 10+ a good coach will still win but win it with some preservation of dignity for the other team, we do want girls to come back next year.

I have seen blowout games by the half mark. Good coaches will pull their top scorers, even play a few of their JV squad.
NHP and Floral Park did not do this, nor the Suffolk teams. PErhaps a little maturity on part of the coaches, time will tell.

Power points has nothing to do with total goals scored , or allowed. This is from the section XI handbook and tells how power ranks are calculated. If a coach runs up a score it's because thats what they want to do, don't let them tell you different



Power Points

Division standings are determined by implementing the power rating point system. At the completion of a division schedule, the following procedure determines rank:

Step 1
Assign the proper winning and losing percentage rating to each team based on its record.

Examples:

(1) Team X - record 5-2-1, winning raw score .71, losing raw score .29
(2) Team Y - record 8-3-1, winning raw score .73, losing raw score .27

Step 2
Determine each team's individual point total as follows:
1. For every win, add the winning percentage raw scores of the opponent.
2. For every loss, subtract the losing raw scores of the opponent.
3. Add each team's own winning percentage raw score to the total.
4. For ties only: determine the difference of the tied teams' winning raw scores and add the resulting positive or negative number to the appropriate team.

Examples:

(1) Team A: 6-1-1 = .86 - Team B: 2-5-1 = .29 (difference = .57). Team B adds .57 to its total points. Team A subtracts .57 from its total points
(2) Team A: 9-1-2 = .90 - Team B: 5-6-1 = .45 (difference = .45) . Team B adds .45 to its total. Team A subtracts .45 from its total.

Step 3
Set the final standings by ranking the teams in order using accumulated point totals. Results may be curved to prevent the publication of a negative total for any team by adding a like positive number (100 points) to all scores.

Ties in Division Standings

The procedure for breaking ties in division standings (teams with exact power points):
1. Head-to-head record breaks ties in point standings in favor of the winner.
2. Compare record versus the highest finishing common opponent. If the record is the same, continue to compare the performance of each team against the highest finishing common opponent in descending order until the tie is broken.
3. If the tie has not been broken using common opponents, it will be broken by the team that beat the highest finishing uncommon opponent.
4. If the tie is still not broken, the highest ranked team as determined by division coaches at the pre-schedule seeding meeting will be the team given the higher final division standing.

Nassau (Section VIII) News and Games to Watch

Class A points to Farmingdale gaining the top playoff seed. The Lady Dalers have cracked the top ten nationally in some polls and figure to be the team to beat in Section VIII. However, the regular season may still hold some surprises as Wednesday will see the Dalers take on the Massapequa Chiefs to close the regular season.

Garden City, despite a four-loss season, are still the Class B favorites for Section VIII. As if scripted on the heels of the Boys-side Woodstick Classic, the Trojans will take on Manhasset on Wednesday in their Conference II Championship. If Manhasset (7-1) can pull the upset, they will claim the Conference II title.

In Class C (Conference IV), Tuesday night will be the second straight season where North Shore and Cold Spring Harbor come into their final league game with identical 8-0 records. The winner of the Vikings/Seahawks game (faceoff at 7:00pm) will claim the conference championship and top seed for the Class C Sectional Tournament. BOTC fully expects that Seaford will grab the third seeded spot for the Section VIII playoffs.

The playoff seeding for Nassau will be based on the final standings. The structure of the Section VIII playoffs is slightly different from the Section XI playoffs.

In Class A (Conference 1), the top eight teams are seeded with 1 vs. 8, 2 vs. 7, 3 vs. 6, and 4 vs. 5.

In Class B (Conference 2/3), there are four top seeds that will receive a first round bye with the next eight seeds (5 through 12) playing in the opening round.

In Class C (Conference 4), six teams will make the post season. The top two seeds will have an opening round bye with the next four seeds (3 through 6) playing in the opening round.

We anticipate the first round in Nassau starting on or about Wednesday, May 16th. Hope that this helps answer your questions.

the long island challenge was started several years ago by the mount sinai coaches and mt. sinai youth director before the days of coach bert (who is great); this is the first time it was not played at Mt. sinai. Over the years it has included many different teams and I'm sure as the tradition continues so will participation from various teams.

Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls Spring 2012 High School Varsity Lacrosse - 05/08/12 05:45 PM

The point is that it is not fair to the other teams. Bryn Mawr and Maryvale deserve the reputation of GC and SA. Given that BM scored 11 straight goals on SA and handled GC easily, they earned it. On the field results matter more than the spin of SA and GC. The article Sunday was the PR hype in full mode. [/quote]I respect what your saying, especially about S.A. . But as far as G.C. goes, they are a public school, unlike McDonogh who , as stated earlier , is more like a college team, and S.A. who basically pay kids to play. Though G.C. is having a down year this year you cant take away that they have won 6 straight N.Y. titles. Its not like we're talking about other states like Ohio or Florida, Both N.Y. and MD. have been hot-beds for lax since John Hopkins organized the sport, cut G.C. a break, there probably going to win the state again, unless Manhasset can beat them [/quote]

Probably, but the chances of an upset have increased I would'nt say GC is a shoe-in. I wonder if the coach has the guts to bench the poison that has rotted that team. They can win without that and play selfless, better lacrosse.

This is false and not true. Your facts are incorrect!!
Maybe you should ask Mr B and he will tell you the truth.

What was the problem with the head coach of Longwood and his team. They insisted on using profanity directed at the head coach of Lindenhurst; because in their minds, "he dissed our coach." Under no circumstance shouldva player get involved in a coach's matter. This is not the first incident of unsportsmanlike behavior or the Longwood team. The coach allows red carded girls to attend games. He is indeed a disgrace to the game of lacrosse.

Why is a player who is ruled "off" for a game due to a red card not permitted to attend the same game?

Not the same game of which she was carded. The subsequent game ; or in this case,2 games.

Fine. The player cannot play in the matches - that has nothing to do with the player attending the games.

I respect what your saying, especially about S.A. . But as far as G.C. goes, they are a public school, unlike McDonogh who , as stated earlier , is more like a college team, and S.A. who basically pay kids to play. Though G.C. is having a down year this year you cant take away that they have won 6 straight N.Y. titles. Its not like we're talking about other states like Ohio or Florida, Both N.Y. and MD. have been hot-beds for lax since John Hopkins organized the sport, cut G.C. a break, there probably going to win the state again, unless Manhasset can beat them [/quote]

If that's what you choose to believe but you are incorrect; do the research it's 100% true. The challenge originated with Mt. sinai and has included teams from as far away as CT. and was under the direction of the former coach(shackles)and the mt. sinai youth director long before bert's arrival..

On the Tuesday night MSG Varsity Girls Lacrosse broadcast, Tracy Wiener specifically mentioned that the event moves hosting venues on a regular basis and that Farmingdale was honored to host the Challenge this year.

Side note : if you have not seen the quality of this broadcast, it is certainly worth your time as we head into the playoff season. What differentiates the MSG Varsity broadcast from, say, News 12's Sports Rush is the color commentary that the in-studio personalities can add in the MSG Varsity edition. To be honest, Tracy does an exceptional job at breaking down some of the games for the viewer.

I can not wait for New Hyde Park to play a real team. I hope they get drilled. Their coach has no class and they need to be spoken to by their AD. 27 goals? Really. Give me a break. You should be ashamed. I hope all the other coaches pay attention.

part of the problem is the refs ,they barely let the girls play defense anymore ,yes I get it we do not want the girls game to become like the boys game but anytime their is any body to body contact they call the defensive player, rarely have I seen charges called, they need to let the girls play defense

What are you crying about? winning by 12 goals is too much for you? seems pretty reasonable to me. most of the teams , if they could , would like to reach the 10 goal advantage to assure the win. If it was 27 to 3 I could see you being upset, but 27 to 15 and your just a sore loser

It depends on the how and when the goals were scored, did NHP continue to score with a big lead and only minutes to go ?? or was it a goal for goal battle all game. if you weren't there its hard to comment

What difference does it make how or when the goals were scored, If it was goal for goal for 40 min. then you try to put as much distance as you can in the remaining time remember St Anthony put 3 goals in on G.C. in 1min 2sec. I saw my daughters Sacred Hart team put in 5 goals in just over 4 min. so tell me when is a coach supposed to feel safe. Should a team stop scoring because you feel they scored too much. this isn't P,A.L. ball. If a score is 20-2 then yes thats excessive , but 27-15 is just about right. Did the loosing team stop trying to catch up, if not then why should the winnig team stop trying to win

you missed my point, with a few minutes to go and a 6-7 goal lead there's a difference between trying to kill the clock and continuing to go to goal. I wasn't there but if NHP continued to go to goal the original poster has a point. I actually think it's less of a big deal in PAL to continue to score as I would like to think the girls are working on skills, plays, getting everyone in the game etc... Varsity teams should play with class.

You are so right. They Keeep the stick near their face and do not cradle the ball. defense can not put stick in their face, and any contact by the body is a foul as well. The girls can play tough defense TOO! High scores are rewarded more points should be given for goals against rather than goals for. That would eliminate running up the score .
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls Spring 2012 High School Varsity Lacrosse - 05/11/12 11:38 PM
Not true one classy game I saw recently, the winning team after the first half was up by just 8. Second half of the game, coach put in JV girls, then after two more goals, she pulled the varsity goalie, put in the JV girl. The score differential at the end was only 4. For the senior girls of the other team, it made a potentially disappointing end a bit more exciting for them it was their last game and for many the last time they will ever play. So there is winning with class and not. Its a choice.
We can try and slant the issue but to anyone remotely objective, what some teams do is clearly classless and there is no one to blame but the coach. there is disparity in competition so many of the games are lopsided. Both teams know going in what is going to happen and the coaches of the teams highlighted instead of trying to make what is in my opinion a bad situation a little better, they opt to make it worse.

The kids know when they have been treated with class by a superior opponent and when they have not. Both are demonstrated in many ways. It is hard for me to think of any necessity of having top players in and scoring when the game is effectively over. Compare the lopsided scores on the boys game compared to the girls and you see very obvious things. It is extremely rare, for a boy in a blow out to score more than 5 goals and most teams will cut it off at 3. Teams would not put up with it. When it happens it stands out. On the girls side it is a multiple times every game occurrence. Do we think that a top player on West Islip, Loyola, Gilman or a Chaminade can not score 8,9, 10 goals against an inferior opponent. The answer is that they have more respect for themselves and their opponent even if weaker. That in essence is the issue.

For the Catholic HS Girl's League, does anyone know the rules regarding a player rostered on varsity playing in a JV game. Specifically, could St. Anthony's have one or more varsity players play in the JV championship game tomorrow against Kellenberg if they have not appeared in other games for JV this season?
