  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

Olympic Heights Lacrosse – Why Is This The Only Major Boca Raton High School Without The Sport? Part One

  As I look around the rapid growth of our favorite sport I'm struck by the fact that in Boca Raton, my hometown, there is ONE glaring hole . . . why is Olympic Heights not fielding a team? Two years ago they announced a Boys' team led by Chris Andrea: Remember this? /breaking-news-olympic-heights-in-boca-to-add-lacrosse/     Pretty sweet helmet design, right? Equipment was donated and money raised. What happened to that equipment and money?  Seems like an accounting needs to occur and quickly.   So, I ask the question of ALL Olympic Heights students and parents . . . Are students interested in playing the sport or not?  The FASTEST growing sport in America is offered all over Boca Raton . . . bu

The 64 Team Field For 2018 – Utilizing MaxPreps Final Rankings

  In this part FLN went through the final MaxPreps rankings to populate a field of 64, split into 4 quadrants of 16 teams each.  All district champions were included and we went straight down the final rankings to figure the next 8 teams in each current quadrant. Remember that some teams might have fallen through the cracks if they did not post 15 game results.  A second place finish did not guarantee a bid and in some cases one district got three teams into the field.  I seeded the teams 1-16 based on their final rankings.  A link to the first page of the rankings are here: http://www.maxpreps.com/rankings/lacrosse-spring-18/1/state/florida.htm Again, I have some real issues with some of these rankings so don't shoot the messenger!  There is a lot of good in this approach
