Marvin Ridge, Middle Creek, Lake Norman, Shamrocks all had some good players. The best player I saw was the tall lefty on Shamrocks but it seemed every team had a couple of very good players. It was great weather and exactly what you would expect from a fall tournament. Some decent individual play, but as the tournament went on and players got tired the ball seemed to be on the ground a lot. Fun tournament.

I believe The Wounded Warrior is scheduled for Saturday, April 1 (no joke) at Charlotte's American Legion Memorial Stadium, near Uptown. Should be a great event.

What's the date of the Champions Challenge?
Southeast Raleigh Lax from Raleigh wrote on October 19, 2016 at 2:37 am:
The awakening of Southeast Lax is so near but yet so far! Until we can get a coach and some games in place, we are at a standstill.

Any help is one more step closer to reviving the first team in WCPSS!

If you know anyone eligible to coach that is looking for a team, send them our way!

Lots of high school club & travel club teams playing at various tournaments across the state this weekend

What teams and players stood out?

Great to hear about SE Raleigh lax revival!

I imagine Conf 3 and Conf 4 are already too big to add an additional team, and both conferences are very competitive

It may be good for SE Raleigh to have one season to schedule mostly younger, developing programs

It looks like they will be in a very competitive conference the following year, when the NCHSAA Realignment is implemented in 2017-2018 school year

Those teams would be:

Late to the dance but.... wrote on October 14, 2016 at 3:58 pm:
....but still dancing. Southeast Raleigh's boys' lacrosse program has risen from the dead and will play this spring. The first varsity program in Wake County will return but not sure if they will be in a conference or not.

Regardless, good for Southeast Raleigh and hoping their program will stay around this time.

Charlotte Catholic's Jack Curry (2020) has committed to Loyola. Congrats to Jack an always tenacious defenseman with a knack for ground balls, he'll be a great addition for the Greyhounds.

Great to see these commits from NC, now we just need to see some of these kids get on the field and actually play....if and when NC kids start showing up on the field and stat sheets, the recruiting for the kids coming behind them will be easier.

Looks like some Conf schedules are finalized, and non-Conf games are being coordinated

While LaxPower is not set up for the 2017 season yet, MaxPreps is ready for schedule input

It will be interesting to see the non-Conf schedules, especially for the teams who have the special resources to travel out-of-state

Greensboro Day's Spencer Clapp, 2017 D, also committed to Jacksonville.
Triad D1 Commits wrote on October 6, 2016 at 3:02 pm:
Looks like the talent is growing across the state including the Triad. NW Guilford's Landon Clary, 2019 LSM, has committed to Syracuse. Greensboro Day's Jack Deligatti, 2018 A, committed to Richmond.
ULax League at Mills Park MS wrote on October 6, 2016 at 2:16 pm:
I went to the opening night of play at Mills Park MS for the new ULax-Raleigh league. Saw a lot of good fast play, passing, clearing, ball rarely on the ground. Any youth or HS player who wants to see some good play ought to try to catch part of it.

Only bad thing is that play runs from 9-11pm so that might not work out too well when you have school the next day; but it is still good play and enjoyable to watch.

League runs for 6 more Wed nights thru Nov. 16.

Heritage A/M Keelan Seneca has committed to Albany. Only a sophomore, looks like talent is growing in wake county exponentially

King of Spring dates wrote on September 28, 2016 at 7:49 pm:
The 2017 KoS dates are Fri Mar 10-Sun Mar 13. Great teams coming from out of state, 9 reigning state champions from Md, GA, NC, TN, VA and other states are in the mix, should be a lot of fun to watch.
Coach Lantzy from Durham, NC wrote on September 28, 2016 at 4:18 pm:
King of the Spring will indeed be played March 10-12 this spring. We have a ton of great programs hailing from 7 states and Canada making the trip to the Triangle. Should be some great high school lacrosse action.

2017 King of Spring will.... wrote on September 27, 2016 at 9:33 pm:
2017 KOS likely will be played March 10-12, usually the second weekend of the regular season. Couldn't find anything definite but last year it was the second weekend of March.

Southern Durham has a coach but don't know his name. Neal MS, which just started its program last year, will feed SDurham.

The triangle again has over 1/3 of all NCHSAA teams, 34 of 101 and 37 of 101 if you count the 3 Cumberland and Moore County teams. Have heard rumblings that there will be several more next year from down there. I look to growth in Johnston County soon, they can't hold out forever, can they?
Raleigh LaxFest from Triangle wrote on September 27, 2016 at 4:43 pm:
Still spaces open for the Raleigh LaxFest on November 12th and 13th. Event is held in Holly Springs, just south of Raleigh at excellent turf facilities.

Youth divisions at this time are on a waitlist adding teams in pairs. High School divisions for 2020, and 2019 teams are close to filling, and still a few spots for High School Travel(10-12th grade teams) and High School Clubs(School based teams, any grade) available.

Visit www.RaleighLaxFest.com for info and registration. Should be a great event, perfect for local high school teams, club teams, and travel teams!

Good luck to all teams this fall!
