BULLETIN May 17, 2019 — It’s gotten worse at Ohio State

Remember this?

Today, this happened.

The independent report has uncovered a pattern of abuse which is infinitely worse than was expected. Some 177 student-athletes at Ohio State spanning the gamut of men’s sports at the school — even a pair of cheerleaders — were abused by Dr. Richard Strauss over the course of some 20 years.

Now, given what we already know about some of the school-based sexual abuse scandals coming to light over the last few years, it’s anyone’s guess how much further this is going to go.

May 17, 2019 — Friday Statwatch for games played through May 15

Hi, everyone. The statistical trend of the week concerns the top of the list for individual goal-scorers. Brittany Sherrod had nine goals in the state public-school semifinals for the state of Kentucky as well as four in the final to finish with 158 goals for the 2019 season, which is tied for third all time in the history of girls’ scholastic lacrosse dating back to the start of the sport in the early 1920s.

But Sherrod isn’t your national scoring champion yet. There are about four weeks left in the domestic season, and there are plenty of impressive players who can also make a run at the top. We’ll see what happens.

Below is 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 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.
