  via Inside Lacrosse   Elizabeth Harrison, Attack/ Draw, American Heritage Delray (Fla.), 2020 | Commitment: Florida A tall, physical presence on the draw circle, Harrison uses her size to her advantage when she self-draws it or boxes out the 50/50 ball. Also provides offense with depth; great dodger and cutter inside the 8-meter. Caitlyn Wurzburger, Attack, American Heritage Delray (Fla.), 2020 | Commitment: Syracuse One of the most talented, dynamic attackers in the nation, Wurzburger defines “dual threat,” as she scores at ease and sets her teammates up to do so, as well, almost interchangeably. She’s relentless in her re-defending efforts and has great drawing abilities, as well, when called upon.   Other Florida kids noted: Jacqueline Nor

  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!
