April 20, 2018 — Friday Statwatch for games played through April 18

Hi, all. We’re back with Statwatch, a feature of this site which tries to tie together the present and the past when it comes to girls’ high school lacrosse.

Today, we’ll point up the fact that last year’s national scoring leader, Charlie Rudy from Novato (Calif.), is ascending the all-time charts (sitting to the right of this column if you are reading this on a computer, below if you are on a mobile device).

Rudy needs a mere 18 goals to crack the Top 10 for goals scored in a four-year varsity career, and she needs just five goals or assists to crack the Top 10 for combined goals and assists, which I think is even more impressive.

Below is a compilation of girls’ lacrosse statistics from various sources including 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.

I encourage you — coach, manager, athletic director, or thought leader — 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.
