    Scoring race begins

    We've finally had enough games behind us to begin posting the scoring leaders for Section 3 Boys. The statistics are collected from the coaches by Syracuse.com. We strip out the non-Section 3 players and post the top 25 in goals, assists, saves, and save ptc. This week we have the top 27 in points, but we will expand that to the top 50 in the coming weeks.

    For save ptc., we set a minimum number of saves for a player to be considered for the top 25. This week the minimum is 15.

    The data for this week was collected on Saturday, April 4th, and includes games through Friday, April 3rd.

    Here are the leaders for this week:

    1 Planck, Brandon Cortland 15

    D-III: Salisbury falls, Stevenson new #1

    Last week's #12 Gettysburg shocked the #1 Salisbury Sea Gulls 11-10 Saturday ending their 55-game win streak, their 87-regular season game win streak, and their 80-game home win streak. The victory allowed 9-0 Stevenson College (formerly Villa Julie) to climb into the top spot in the March 31st edition of the CaseyPowellLacrosse.com / JustLacrosse.com Division-III Top 20. Stevenson received 3 first-place votes, while now #2 Salisbury received one, and the 11-0, #3 Roanoke Maroons also received one.

    The upset allowed Gettysburg to move up four places to #8, followed closely by the biggest mover this week, Tufts, up five spots and tied with Washington & Lee at #9. Western New England climbed four from #16 to #12.

    Wednesday's loss to Cortland gives Nazareth the dubious honor of dropping the farthest in our poll this week. The Golden Flyers fall from thirteenth to eighteenth, despite pounding Elmira 28-7 on Saturday. Cabrini drops three places to #14, and Lynchburg drops three and now shares the #20 position with the poll newcomer for this week, St. Lawrence.

    Our poll is voted on by a group of highly respected and knowledgeable individuals from the upstate lacrosse community. Links to our Pre-season Poll, as well as collective look at our group of voters can be found at our Poll Archives page.

    Others receiving votes: Lynchburg, Denison, Stevens, St. John Fisher.

    CaseyPowellLacrosse.com D-I Top 20 for March 31

     

    Despite needing seven OT's to down Maryland, Virginia remains the unanimous #1 at the CaseyPowellLacrosse.com / JustLacrosse.com Division I Top 20 Poll. In fact, there was no change until North Carolina swapped places with Johns Hopkins, with the Tarheels now at #9. The now #12 Brown moved up from #14, and UMass also climbed two places, from #19 to #17.

    Losses at Syracuse and to visiting Fairfield caused Hobart to fall the farthest this week, from #17 to #20.

    And back in the Top 20 this week on the strength of some outstanding freshmen play are the Albany Great Danes, in at #17.

    Our poll is voted on by a group of highly respected and knowledgeable individuals from the upstate lacrosse community. Links to our Pre-season Poll, as well as collective look at our group of voters can be found at our Poll Archives page.

    Others receiving votes: Army, Fairfield, Denver, Bucknell, Villanova, Ohio St., Towson, Penn St.

    Celebrating 50 Seasons of LaFayette Lacrosse

    The LaFayette Lancers are beginning the 50th season of their high school lacrosse program.

    Begun in 1960 by Karl Weist as an incentive for young Onondaga Nation men to stay in school, the program blossomed under Coach Gordie Ohstrom into one of the most successful and well-respected programs in the state. Despite having a very small enrollment, Coach Ohstrom and his Lancers managed a 41-game winning streak from 1967 through 1969.

    On April 25th, when Cazenovia comes to town to battle the Lancers, LaFayette  invites the entire lacrosse community to join them in celebrating their 50th season. Players from the inaugural 1960 team will be honorary captains during a pre-game ceremony, and the 1967 Hall of Fame Team, along with other notable coaches, players, and championship teams will be recognized at half-time.

    LaFayette Alumni can contact any of the people below for more information.

    Salisbury #1, Washington & Lee, Tufts make impressive moves

    In this week's CaseyPowellLacrosse.com Division III Top 20, the top six schools remained the same, with a little rearranging in the 2-5 positions. The big news is the jump Washington & Lee made in the past seven days. They are now 8-0, with only three of those games close ones. Tonight they face Middlebury, the team they are currently tied with at #7.

    Tufts University is also making some noise as they are on a 6-0 run this season. They debut in the Top 20 at #14. We'll find out if they can keep it going as they face #10 Wesleyan on Saturday.

    Falling from grace with our voters are Denison, St. Lawrence, and Stevens, all out this week, Clarkson dropping five places, and Lynchburg with a seven-place tumble to #17.

    Our poll is voted on by a group of highly respected and knowledgeable individuals from the upstate lacrosse community. Links to our Pre-season Poll, as well as collective look at our group of voters can be found at our Poll Archives page.
