Serving the scholastic field hockey and lacrosse community since 1998

May 13, 2022 — Friday Statwatch for games played through May 11

This week’s statistical occurrence is obvious. With nine goals last night in a win over Lincoln-Way Central (Ill.), Fran Frieri, the fine senior from Lockport (Ill.), became the fifth member of the 500-goal club.

Mind you, it’s a 500-goal club which includes more than one athlete who competed in more than the four-year varsity career that most publications recognize. If, for example, you wanted to count just the freshman through senior years in high school, the current leaders are these:

540 Sophia Turchetta
520 Taylor Pinzone
501 Fran Frieri
485 Bridget Ruskey
479 Jane Earley

All five of these players are from the 2010s, but the commonalities amongst the five are few. Yes, three of them are from Massachusetts and just about all of them were forwards, although Turchetta was known to be on the draw team at times.

But Frieri has one big upside: she has scored all of her goals in just three varsity seasons. Lockport lost the 2020 season to the global pandemic, and it is an open question as to how many other records she could have eclipsed in four full seasons. But she’ll have the rest of this scholastic season to try to eclipse Turchetta’s four-year mark before taking her talents to Notre Dame.

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.
