Attack: Brad Thompson (CC), great player that can easily go both hands. Will reek havoc on the West this year and has great compliments with him in Matt Bohmer and Ian Baker.

Midfield: Matt Elder (LKN), probably the best offensive player in the state. Can beat anyone in front of him and will rack up points against any defenseman.
Its a new season wrote on January 19, 2017 at 3:37 am:
reply too Its a new season
Attack- Cameron Renner,
Midfield- Weddingtons whole line equally great Alex Helms, Austin Leonard James Shipley
Defense- Coby Kurtz

Would love hear from some input from some of the Charlotte lax observers about why Weddington is expected to be so strong this year. I know they were very good last year, but I've heard some suggest they could be best in the state this year. What parts of their are particularly strong? Also would like to hear some thoughts about how CC and LKN compare to their respective teams of last year.

A huge THANK YOU to Duke Whelan and his team from the Eastern NC chapter of US Lacrosse for a well organized and informative coach's clinic this past Sat. at NC State.
The first class facilities combined with informative sessions for coaches of all knowledge levels was a huge success in my opinion.
The NC State club lax teams provided numerous volunteers who were there from early AM until the events conclusion and provided indispensable time in contributing to the event's success.
Thanks to all the presenters who shared their knowledge with the 100+ attendees.
Also thanks to all the sponsors who contributed to the event.
Don't miss your next opportunity to grow your knowledge of the game at the level I coaches certification March 5 at Durham Academy.
Great job to all!!

In 3A I believe it really comes down to the Weddington v Marvin game. Weddington comes out with a much stronger team this year than that of Marvin Ridge. I predict that Weddington easily wins the 3A title. Your thoughts?

Hello, I'm back with my post fall ball rankings.

Post Fall Ball Rankings

1. Cardinal Gibbons- These guys are gonna be #1 forever, turf field, hardest out of conference schedule, having players from other counties, etc. With that being said, a great team, multiple d1 commits on defense, returning their whole D. Not many people will be scoring many goals on these guys. Offense will be good as well.
2. Middle Creek- Offense is going to be incredible, would love to see them go against the Gibbons D, return just about everybody from last year.
3. Hoggard- Great attack, probably the second best behind Middle Creeks. Returning multiple D1 commits, should be one of the best teams ever from Wilmington.
4. Apex- Some teams rebuild, Apex reloads. Lost huge senior class last year but have one of the best goalies in the State returning. Some good young players returning as well.
5. Broughton- Had a fantastic regular season and then lost in the first round. Returning some very good young offensive players, returning a now veteran defense. Expect them to run through the Cap 8 untouched.
6. Holly Springs- Had a great season last year, returning a lot. I expect them to finish third in Conference 3.
7. Green Hope- return some good players all around, as well as a very good goalie. Could surprise some teams.
8. Wakefield- returns just about everybody from a very talented offense. I expect them to be the second best team in the Cap 8.
9. Heritage- My surprise team, they were very young last year and had a very good season.
10. Leesville- They’ve really improved the past two seasons, making it to the quarterfinals in back to back years. Unfortunately for them all of their talent graduated.

You can see the teams who will be playoff ready, top competitors (NWG,CC,LKN,CG) that have crazy hard non-conference schedule. Teams may take their lumps but will be ready for each other later in the season. Some nice match up are NWG-Highland Park TX, CC-Severn, GC-Mcdonough, and LKN-Kiski Prep. There are a lot more I just choose some intriguing matchups.
