As boys’ high school lacrosse players, teams and coaches earn a spot on our 2015 Best Known Lacrosse Performances list, LaxRecords.com will post a daily item acknowledging the performance.
There are multiple ways to submit a performance for inclusion on our Best Known Performances list. You can use one of our submission forms (links below), which is the easiest way. Or you can email Mike Loveday at email@example.com.
Centennial (Roswell, Ga.) senior Nathan Solomon became just the 11th boys’ high school lacrosse player to cross the 500 career point threshold when he tallied three goals and one assist in a 12-10 win over Alpharetta (Ga.) on Monday. That game put him a 502 career points.
So far this season, through just seven games, Solomon has 50 points on 33 goals and 17 assists. There are 12 games remaining on the regular season schedule, along with a likely playoff run.
If Solomon can manage 98 more points this season, which would give him a total of 148, he would reach the 600 point mark and become just the third player to reach that plateau in their career. For added context, Solomon totaled 103 points as a freshman, 189 as a sophomore and 160 as a junior.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
