The D2 Stroll…






Lacrosse The Country…


·         Drew Snider (Garfield) recorded a hat-trick to help Maryland reach the Quarterfinals of the NCAA Division I Tourney with a one-goal win over Lehigh.

·         RIT advanced to the Quarters of the NCAA Division III tourney with a win over Western New England.  Taylor Wisman (Northshore) contributed 1g,4a in the win.

·         Three WHSBLA alumns at Domincan were named with WILA Honors this week.


Lacrosse Four Thought…

·         Who got snubbed from the Division I All-State teams?

·         What do you think of the All-American selections?

·         Which player is missing and deserved a spot on a Division II All-Conference Team?

·         Would any of the remaining Division II Playoff teams make the playoffs in Division I?


Sound Lacrosse Photo Contest…


·         View last week’s winner and/or begin voting for next week’s winner through the contest page on the Washington State Prep Lacrosse site

·         View the latest photos each week at Sound Lacrosse.


Parting Shots…


·         The real solution to the VERY SERIOUS problem facing Washington Boys Lacrosse is to split into 3 Divisions based on size of program.  These divisions should be called "3A", "2A" and "1A" in the same way WIAA distinguishes ALL other HS sports.  It also moves away from the notion that "Division 1" is all the good teams and Division 2 is all the rest.  Bellevue's 3A football team doesn't seem inclined to hang their heads in the presence of Skyline's 4A football team, and it shouldn't be that way in lacrosse either.” – Rick Jenness
