  Author's Note:  This article appeared in the latest US Lacrosse Magazine and we had to wait for it to post online before we could link to it.  It's a great read!   Why Pensacola Could Become A Lacrosse Hotbed by Matt Hamilton   Excerpt: Football and baseball reign supreme on Florida’s Gulf Coast, especially in and around the Pensacola area. But starting about six years ago, Cassandra Waller, who oversees the physical education curriculum for Escambia County Public Schools, started to hear rumblings of another sport in her community — lacrosse. More and more youth programs, like the Pensacola Knights and Gulf Breeze, popped up and children were increasingly becoming interested in the stick-and-ball game. “I started to notice an upward trend in lacrosse

  Sounds a heck of a lot better than 'Regional Semifinal Results' . . . The old way to criticize committees . . . "A Camel Is A Horse Designed By A Committee" I'm making this point to start our analysis of the announcement of the FHSAA debate on adding a new classification, level, whatever they call it. But that's another day. Just take a clue from this . . . Is it more exciting to call it the Regional Semifinal or the Sweet 16? Not hard to make that call!   American Heritage-Delray 21-4 over Pine Crest at home Hagerty 9-3 at home over Creekside Lake Highland Prep 11-5 over Dr. Phillips at home St. Stephens 17-11 over Naples on the road HB Plant 17-7 on the road over Newsome Oak Hall 19-2 over Fletcher at home St. Thomas Aquinas 19-2 o...

  SOS - I went to a new phone and lost all my contacts!! In order to be able to do season previews I'm going to need some help from you! Please send to me at lee@floridalacrossenews.com your cell number, school name (better I learn any more coaching moves now) and if you have your schedules in a Word, Excel or PDF format I'd appreciate that too!  Those of you who have my cell number can send the contact data via text so I can upload it directly to my phone. Many of you can also help me out by sending out this request to the other coaches in your districts that don't frequent our web site . . . please do so!  Otherwise I'll have to call each school individually and that's not a good use of my time.  Thanks for all the help up front! For the fans I have some good news bas

Petition Request to the FHSAA Concerning the Girl’s Helmet Rule

  Author's Note:  I received a request from a group concerning a petition the group would like to send to the FHSAA for the upcoming vote on the use of the girl's headgear for the upcoming season.  Readers remember two years ago when FLN covered the issue at length.  We were careful to not fully reject the idea as our issue with it was far more about the process of how the FHSAA came to its' original decision, not the actual ruling itself. Currently, the intent is to continue the mandatory use of a headgear, with two vendors products approved for use for the upcoming season, as listed on the FHSAA Lacrosse web site page: https://www.fhsaa.org/sites/default/files/orig_uploads/sports/lacrosse/2017-18/fhsaa_lacrosse_headgear_approved_list.pdf The petition itself focuses on aski
