Assist. Defined by Merriam-Webster, means to give support or help : to make it easier for someone to do something or for something to happen. The players below did all of that, many times over. Included in the list below are the players who have the most assists in a game, with a minimum of 10.
There could be players missing from this list. LaxRecords.com is continuing its National Career Performances project. I am publishing an incomplete list now in hopes of participation from our readers. Records will be added as we receive them.
To submit a performance to the national records list, have the head coach or official team statistician e-mail information to Mike Loveday at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Keep tabs on all the best known high school boys’ lacrosse performances that are added each day with the daily Best Known Lacrosse Performances list. Each day as players, teams and coaches earn a spot on the overall list, LaxRecords.com posts a daily item acknowledging the achievement.
What I Do
LaxRecords.com aims to compile the best known records in high school lacrosse. Among the lists are the most career wins by a high school lacrosse coach. Also included are most career points, goals, assists and saves by a high school lacrosse player. Team performances for most state sanctioned championships and consecutive wins are also tracked.
Some records are incomplete. I solicit help from the lacrosse community to fill the missing gaps. If there is a performance or player missing, please email me at email@example.com or send me a Tweet at @LaxRecords.
According to US Lacrosse, lacrosse is the fastest-growing sport in the nation. Just under 300,000 players competed on varsity, junior varsity, freshman and club teams. According to the National Federation of State High School Associations, from 2009 to 2014, a total of 551 schools added boys’ programs, resulting in a growth rate of 27.8 percent for boys’ lacrosse. US Lacrosse produces a participation report annually since 2001, and over that time span the number of players has grown 204 percent, from 253,901 to 772,772. This survey counts only play on organized teams, and does not count leisure-time play of the sport.
