Serving the scholastic field hockey and lacrosse community since 1998

May 11, 2018 — Friday Statwatch for games played through May 9

Hi, everyone. This week in Statwatch, we take a look at a player whose scholastic lacrosse career could resound as loudly as Austyn Cuneo in field hockey — an aggressive, fluid player whose statistics could stick out like a Mount Everest in Kansas.

You may know the name Caitlyn Wurzburger. She’s the Florida-based lacrosse player who made her verbal commitment to Syracuse while still in middle-school. But evidently, Gary Gait saw something in her, and that something has been on full display since her eighth-grade varsity season at Delray American Heritage (Fla.).

In that eighth-grade season, she scored 101 goals and dished out 103 assists. That’s right. Eighth grade.

Here are her career numbers thus far, with only this evening’s state final against Orlando Lake Highland (Fla.) remaining:

Year Goals Assists Total
8th 101 103 204
Fr. 101 115 216
So. 103 111 214

How much further can this offensive streak go? Do the math. With her first assist this evening, she will surpasses Corinne Wessels’ highest-known career assist total. And if she duplicates her output this season for her junior year, she will have surpassed Sophia Turchetta’s all-time combined goals and assists record — which took her six varsity seasons to accomplish. Barring injury or illness, she could figure in more than 1,000 scoring plays, an unbelievable accomplishment.

What follows is our compilation of girls’ lacrosse statistics through this past Wednesday 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 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.
