  But something is missing. The ease of finding data was buried the night this happened . . . Rest In Peace LP . . . And here's a prayer that MaxPreps can come close . . .   The 2019 Florida High School Lacrosse season has already begun as I write this, so put on your pretend hats and figure this was put up Sunday instead. Last season was one for the books. Public Champion Many new entries into the Polls all year New stars to cover . . . and the parade of big time coaches continues to make their way down to the state.
