  I'll be writing up the game recaps of the finals later today, but what a great two days!   First a big thank you to the FHSAA for bringing the games down to the Southeast for the first time! Jupiter Community High School and the Palm Beach County Sports Commission partnered to bring the FHSAA Lacrosse Championships to Palm Beach County. A great thanks to the volunteers were from the JHS Boys and Girls Lacrosse teams, the JHS football team, the Booster Club, JTAA and the Town of Jupiter. This was truly a team and community effort.

  A few technical difficulties but we are now up and running. Olympia and Bartram Trail will kick this one off Pretty warm day for the game and the field will be hot.  Conditioning will play a factor.

By our good friend Wells Dusenbury at Sun Sentinel American Heritage-Delray coach John McClain constantly refers to his star attacker as an “anomaly.” Take a quick glance at her numbers and it’s easy to see why. As just an 8th grader, Caitlyn Wurzburger has dominated the competition, putting up jaw-dropping numbers for the state-bound Stallions. As American Heritage prepares for Friday’s semifinal match-up versus Vero Beach, Wurzburger is on the cusp of history. Read the story here
