May 5, 2017 — Friday Statwatch for games played through May 3

It’s time once again for Friday Statwatch, our attempt to make sense of the national girls’ lacrosse scene through the numbers.

This week, we examine the exploits of the explosively brilliant junior Charlie Rudy, who plays for Novato (Calif.), a school located 15 miles due north of the Golden Gate Bridge. Rudy currently leads the country in goals with 130 as of the end of play on Wednesday. It is a total which, if you look at the column to the right, puts her in rarefied territory. The 130 goals put her 16th all time for single-season scoring.

It’s not just the volume of scoring that is impressive; it’s the opponents. She had seven against Denver Colorado Academy (Colo.), and had four goals and four assists against San Francisco St. Ignatius (Calif.).

What you see below are statistics from amongst others, MaxPreps.com, NJ Advance Media, The Harrisburg Patriot-News, The Providence Journal, The Albany Times-Union, Long Island Newsday, The Worcester Telegram, The St. Louis Post-Dispatch, MassLive.com, the Denver Post, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, MSG Varsity, the Ann-Arbor News, and The Washington Post.

To make this list better in the future, I encouraging you to convince your team, your school, league, or state governing body to adopt the easy-to-use MaxPreps.com platform, and we encourage you to get your fellow teams to enter their information there as well as whichever is your local news site, so that we can aim for as complete a statistical picture of the country as possible.
