May 6, 2022 — Friday Statwatch for games played through May 4

Well, as you might expect, this week sees a number of individual stats coming in behind the players whose seasons have already finished. We’re seeing players from the heart of lacrosse country starting to nip at the heels of the early stat leaders.

While all this is happening, Fran Frieri, last year’s national scoring champion, has started ascending the rostrum of the best goal-scorers in the history of the sport. At the end of Wednesday’s play, she had 475 goals. With four regular-season games remaining, she is set to join Sophia Turchetta, Taylor Pinzone, Shannon Smith, and Caitlyn Wurzburger in the 500-goal club.

Now, there will be those (like me) who are going to be comparing and contrasting this feat with the rest, given the fact that Turchetta, Smith, and Wurzburger had varsity careers longer than four years. But as we do here, we don’t blame certain states for keeping deserving seventh- and eighth-graders from varsity play because of the notion of protecting some players from those older and sometimes more physically mature.

The figures in red below are compiled from available sources across the nation. I encourage you to keep convincing your teams, your schools, leagues, or state governing bodies 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.
