5/1/11

 

May is already here!  Will all those April showers bring out the sun and the May flowers? Or will there be dustings of snow in western Washington as some have predicted.  At any rate, we are down to the last two weeks of the regular season and the 4/30/11 show of The Varsity News is filled with lacrosse highlights including Stadium @ Tahoma, Bellevue @ Overlake and North Kitsap @ Klahowya.

Lacrosse The Country…

 

·         Steve Caditz (Mercer Island) has found a groove the second half of the season as he has now scored in his fifth straight game for Bentley (ranked #12 in NCAA Division II). 

 

·         The old Bainbridge vs Lakeside rivalry was renewed out east as Max Olson (Bainbridge) registered a career high 4 points in a Kenyon win over Oberlin and Dylan Holmes (Lakeside).

 

 

Lacrosse Four Thought…

What do you think of our Power Rankings in each Division?

Which two teams will be left out in Division I’s Northeast Conference?

Who will be the best team in Division II to miss the playoffs?

Why do teams feel the need to score 30+ goals in a lacrosse game against a clearly inferior opponent?

 

 

Parting Shots…

 

A big THANKS to Kelly and Tammy Clinch for the best contribution of the year so far!  They contributed the list below in response to one of our thoughts from last week.

 

Here are the impact underclassmen we have seen in DII (in no particular order):

1. Jarrett Toy (Fr) and Austin Tippett (Soph) for Snohomish.  Leading their team in scoring.  Snohomish has a lot of young talent (Remlinger, Davyd Powell)

2. Caleb Moisant (Soph) for Providence.  Leading scorer on a team with a lot of scorers.

3. Griffin Van Bausch (Soph) for Skagit Valley.  Dominant face off guy, scores, plays good D, ground ball machine.

4. Frank Medlicott (Soph) for Stanwood.  Very versatile player.  Plays shut down D as a long pole, ground ball machine and now becoming a dangerous scorer with a short pole.

5. Colter Clinch (Soph) for Woodinville.  Leading scorer for Falcons until side lined with a broken foot 2 weeks ago.  Big kid that can dodge and shoot. Rides well.

6. Daniel McKee (Fr) for Woodinville.  Can shoot on the run both right and left handed, physical, plays good defense.

 

We’ll give a shot to the best emails of the week and include your comments/quotes/etc in next week’s Sunday Stroll.
