Class 2A - Region R1 - District D4 School City Hagerty Oviedo Lake Brantley Altamonte Springs Lake Mary Lake Mary Lyman Longwood Oviedo Oviedo Seminole (Sanford) Sanford Winter Springs Winter Springs Take last year’s District 8 and add Hagerty and Oviedo and you have a terrific district.  The downside?  Likely facing Ponte Vedra in Round 1.  On paper this is a heck of a district tournament to attend! Lake Mary will likely be the favorite and of all the teams up in this half of the state, they have had the most success against Ponte Vedra lately.  But Lake Brantley came within a goal of snatching the district for themselves last year, and Hagerty made my final Top 25 too.  Slobberknocker territory to steal a catchphrase. Oviedo has been steadily improving so can they...

#3 Oxbridge Uses 4-Goal 4th Quarter to Down #1 Jupiter 9-6

  Thanks to Paul Kabalin for these pictures! During the 3rd quarter I had to tweet 'This is what the sport is about' . . . or just another way of saying #LacrossePutMyButtInThisSeat. And it must have been true for others last night too.  Filling a seat every 18 inches (I would guess close to 500 last night) . . . which probably beats an airline seat these days . . . is a beautiful thing on a Thursday night, colder than normal game.  About the only thing this one missed was a last minute drama . . . but we can thank Oxbridge goalie Christian Tomei and the Oxbridge offense for that.  Tomei stood on his head in the second half, stopping 9 of the 11 shots on goal sent by Jupiter's snipers as Oxbridge killed off SEVEN second half Man-Down's, including two 6-4 situations.&...

My first memory would be that I was very nervous playing a new sport but the experience of having teammates that work together to do ou...

My coach later needed more people so I had made the team. A more positive memory is wearing space buns and eating cereal with friends befor...
