April 27, 2018 — Friday Statwatch for games played through April 25

Readers, we are back with Friday Statwatch, a place of statistical achievements, oddities, and occasional awesomeness.

This week, I’m pointing up the fact that The McDonogh School is not the only entity in girls’ high school lacrosse that breaks a record every time it comes out onto the pitch.

For the last two years, Alexandria St. Stephen’s/St. Agnes (Va.) has broken a record just about every time it plays a game. That’s because head coach Kathy Jenkins is the all-time leader (that we know of) for girls’ varsity lacrosse coaching victories. She surpassed the legendary Angela Tammaro of Greenwich (Conn.) Academy during the school’s 25th Anniversary Spring Fling, and has kept on going, as she has since she started the lacrosse program in 1976.

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. These numbers are as of the end of play on Wednesday, meaning that there could very well be numbers in the Daily Statwatch which are newer.

I encourage all coaches, managers, athletic directors, and any influencers out there 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.

With many cool-weather states now heading into the meat of their seasons, there are going to be a lot of changes in this list the next month or so. If you see something missing, feel to send us an email at TopOfTheCircle.com. Give us a name or a bit of documentation (a website will do) so that we can make the adjustment.

Thanks a lot for reading, and we’ll reconvene next week.
