South Florida Chapter of US Lacrosse Honors Season’s Best

South Florida Chapter of US Lacrosse Honors Season’s Best

Saturday night FAU's stadium served not only as the site of a thrilling Florida Launch come from behind 15-14 win over the The New York Lizards, but also as the host for this year's South Florida Chapter of US Lacrosse awards banquet.  As far as I am concerned, every chapter in the state should try to replicate this great way to celebrate its season, whether locally or better yet, coordinated with a trip to Boca Raton for the night when the Launch is in town.  The staff at the Launch, headed by Brian and Don Clinton, Michael Zeff and others put on a terrific evening and are doing a ton of community outreach (check out the photos at the bottom of this article to see an example).  The Launch management is building a great franchise. Thank you to everyone, including emcees Joe Chiarella, E

Your dutiful backup writer (who includes few details and would rather take pictures) decided to drive to Orlando yesterday and attend one of the two play-off games in town.  Driving north, I decided to check in with Lee Roggenburg and pick the better of the two contests.  After detailed research, it was clear to him that the Berkeley Prep - Lake Highland Prep match-up offered the best opportunity to see a potential upset. His thinking, while often backwards in this writer's opinion, was pretty sound this time around.  Lake Highland did not appear to have as strong a team as in years past, having survived two very close games with come from behind wins to make it to the Final Eight.  Berkeley, meanwhile, gave IMG all it could handle during the regular season, losing twice by one goal eac

  We'll be back with more details later so look for the Updated version   What we can tell you now is that this is a tremendous accomplishment by the PV team as this was an intersectional win over a team with at least SEVEN D1 recruits, led by Coach Jamie Munro, the former Denver University head coach.  Their kids are committed to Notre Dame, UNC, Cornell, Delaware (2), Hobart and Air Force. A terrific result for PV and this state as we jockey for acceptance in the greater lacrosse world!   Update: Clay Welch scored four goals, including the game winner with about 4 minutes left as PV overcame a 3-goal deficit in the fourth quarter at Lake Highland Prep.  Reid Smith with 3 goals and Dylan Hess scored the other PV goals.  Goalie Wyatt Schupler made a few

  Congratulations to Kylie on her college commitment and good luck with your future! Club Affiliation:  Laxmaniax   We received: "Benjamin’s Kylie Kempe has committed to apply early decision to Johns Hopkins, with the full support of the coaching staff. Kylie’s decision was made after considering a number of top D1 and D3 programs. Like her brothers (Conner, who was a quarterback at Dartmouth and Colby, who is a middie at Tufts) and sister, Kirby, who attended Rice on academic scholarships, Kylie, a high honors student with a 33 ACT, visited many schools for the right academic and athletic fit. In the end, it was the storied lacrosse history of Hopkins, the ability to play for a nationally ranked D1 program, coupled with a top 10 academic environment that produc

  Well, I didn't see this one coming. Not the result . . . the way the game was played. It was a pretty ugly game to watch. These two teams have played some beautiful games the last few years.  Lots of top end talent . . . OT . . . rhythm and flow.  The ball not hitting the ground.  Fast breakouts and precision passing.  Great ground ball play. All of that took a vacation last night. Frankly this was simply Jupiter outworking SA last night.  Whether there was a hangover from the Boys' Latin game, the affect of some sickness, or whatever, Jupiter outworked SA last night.  Plain and simple.   While preparing for this article I was intrigued by Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream and the character Puck in particular.  So I read up on him a little and foun
