May 3, 2019 — Friday Statwatch for games played through May 1

It’s been an interesting race for the top scorer in the U.S. this year, given the fact that you have nothing in between the two current leaders, Brittany Sherrod and Katelyn Murphy. However, there are some swaths of the nation which we know have been putting up tremendous numbers of goals as a team, but whose newspapers do not collect or publish statistics. I have a feeling once those numbers are revealed, these lists will be steamrolled.

What you see below is a combination of girls’ scholastic lacrosse statistics from available 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, gentle reader, 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.
