Good morning, all, and welcome to our weekly helping of statistical information from across the country. It’s not been easy trying to pull all of this together, given the fact that Maine starts lacrosse this week, and the lacrosse team from Fort Myers Canterbury (Fla.), which has a number of statistical leaders, ended its season a week ago with a playoff defeat.
This is going to mean a very interesting few weeks as the northern and western schools make a serious run at the markers that the southeastern schools have laid down.
As per usual, Friday Statwatch reflects games through the end of play the previous Wednesday. I encourage coaches and scorers to enter their information in the easy-to-use MaxPreps.com platform, and we encourage you to get your fellow teams to enter their information there as well so that we can aim for as complete a statistical picture of the country as possible.
All statistics should come from any and all timed, scored, and umpired games in a team’s season that count towards a predetermined limit (if any) set by a state or regional sanctioning body and/or qualify a team for, or affect a seeding in, a postseason tournament. This includes any losers’ bracket games for in-season tournaments and any postseason tournament for which a team qualifies.
Here’s what we’ve compiled thus far, thanks to, amongst others, MaxPreps.com, Advance Media, The Harrisburg Patriot-News, The St. Louis Post-Dispatch, MassLive.com, the Denver Post, and The Washington Post:

Here’s where you come in. If you see a stat that is a little awry (or a lot), don’t send it in the comments section, but send us an email at TopOfTheCircle.com. Your email should include a bit of documentation (a website will do) or someone that can be called to double-check. Friday Statwatch is a living, breathing, malleable organism that can be altered or added to at any time. Please let us know if we’ve missed something and we’ll try to do better next week.
