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 known to be 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.
