LaxRecords.com aims to compile the best known records in high school boys’ lacrosse. Among the lists are Best Known Boys’ Lacrosse Performances for each season, starting in 2011. 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 Mike Loveday or send me a Tweet at @LaxRecords.
