It's fitting that Nicky Solomon from Centennial (Ga.) did not break his older brother’s state scoring lead on May 2. Instead, the UNC commit will spend a few days tied with Nathan at No. 1.
After becoming just the fifth player in history to surpass 600 career points on May 28, Solomon scored 10 points against North Cobb (Ga.) to put him at 623 career points - the exact total that current Syracuse star Nathan Solomon finished his career.
Nicky scored seven goals and two assists in a win over Woodward Academy (Ga.) to reach 600 career points on April 27. He added four assists and three goals against Louisville Trinity (Ky.) to bring his total to 608.
Solomon became the first person in state history and just the fourth person in the sport’s history to reach 300 career assists. He accomplished that feat earlier this season. This is the second time this season Solomon has celebrated a new century mark. He reached 500 career points in early March.
With at least one game remaining on the Knights schedule. Solomon is likely to break the scoring record. That will move him into 3rd place all-time on the Career Points list. Solomon has the potential to complete his career as the nation’s 2nd-best scorer of all-time. Justin Anderson, who is currently playing at UNC, finished his career with 632 career points. Anderson played his high school lacrosse at another Centennial in Las Vegas.
Where He Ranks
Solomon is tied for 3rd all-time for career points with his brother Nathan.
Solomon is 2nd all-time in career assists with 342. He is behind only Michael Sowers who had 402 in his career.
Solomon's 281 career goals place him 30th all-time right now. He could quickly move into the Top 25 with nine more goals this year.
