June 1, 2018 — Friday Statwatch for games played through May 30

Greeting, folks, and welcome back to Friday Statwatch, a helping of lacrosse statistics from all over the U.S. of A.

With only a handful of states still playing the statistical picture nationwide is rounding into shape. However, there’s one player to watch as the season draws to a close. That’s senior Jane Earley of Falmouth (Mass.) Academy. She had a 13-goal game last week, which brings her to within shouting distance of the national lead in goals for this season (as far as we can tell, of course).

Below is our weekly 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.

June 1, 2018 — A unified approach

So, most of you know this site is more than just a blog. There’s video, audio, social media, and, very soon, a custom mobile site for those of you on smartphones.

Before today, if you went to this site’s Twitter, Facebook, WordPress, and Instagram presences, you would have seen four different colors of this site’s logo. Twitter was gold, Facebook was green, WordPress was red, and Instagram was yellow.

But as a service to you, the reader (as well as to instill some self-discipline), you now are seeing the same logo (gold and purple) for all of the satellite sites. It’s a cleaner and more unified look than in the past, and I hope it makes the various parts of the site feel as though they fit together.
