May 19, 2023 — Friday Statwatch for games played through May 17

Welcome back to Statwatch, our attempt at collecting statistics from all over the nation to tell stories about players, teams, and even trends.

This week, our goals and assists leaders are in playoff mode. Vanni Intini, a sophomore attacking midfielder from Fayetteville (N.C.) Academy, finishes her season tomorrow in the NCISAA Division II Tournament against The Asheville (N.C.) School. She has 152 goals this season, but there are others waiting in the weeds looking to overtake her.

In the assists category, junior attacker Lauren Hayden has amassed 138 this season, which puts her already third all-time behind the remarkable Besser Dyson and Corinne Wessels in the all-time single-season assist list. Hayden and her Newport Croatan (N.C.) side are in the NCHSAA Division 1A/3A title match against Kernersville Bishop McGuinness (N.C.). Bishop McGuinness, incidentally, has a top scorer in Kathleen Dennen, who will be looking to improve on her 116 goals.

What you see below are from available sources, including MaxPreps, Berks Game Day, the KHSAA, The St. Louis Post-Dispatch, and Advance Media. To make this list an even more complete one, I encourage you to adopt the easy-to-use 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.

We could use help rounding out this list, given the number of lacrosse teams who no longer are covered by newspapers or who don’t connect with MaxPreps. If you see something amiss (bearing in mind that this is supposed to be a snapshot of lacrosse stats as of the end of play on Wednesday), please feel free to send an email to us at Include some backup (a website link will do), and we can make corrections.

Thanks for reading and we’ll be back next week.
