Jan. 1, 2019 — New look, old look

Hi, all. As we look back on a record-setting field hockey season, we also look forward to the U.S. domestic lacrosse season, which is less than six weeks away.

The unprecedented growth in the Deep South is a major story, with teams like Delray American Heritage (Fla.) and Walton (Ga.) taking on the nation’s best, and Tennessee sanctioning the sport just last week.

Also a major story is Boston College, which is the punditry’s prohibitive favorite to win the NCAA Division I title, thanks to the return of fifth-year senior Kenzie Kent.

But let’s not hand the plaque to B.C. just yet. A gaggle of teams will contend for the gold, including Florida, Maryland, Syracuse, Stony Brook, and our dark horse, Towson.

You will notice the right columns are altered a bit. Our Chasing History numbers are girls’ lacrosse records. As such, they are a bit thinned out because of graduation.

Only the stellar junior Caitlyn Wurzburger is ready to ascend the rostrum of all-time greats. She is already the nation’s all-time assist leader, and is currently at 307 career goals, so she is at the edge of our goals list.

You’ll also notice that Moorestown Head Coach Deanna Knobloch’s name is listed in black instead of orange, because she will not be an active scholastic head coach in 2019.

We’ll be spending time making a good, robust lacrosse desktop. Hopefully that will round into shape soon.

So, Happy New Year to you in the lacrosse community. Should be an interesting run-in until the first draws are taken in earnest.
