Player of the Week
JP Jackson, Cardinal Mooney (Fla.)
Jackson totaled eight points as Cardinal Mooney defeated Lake Highland Prep (Fla.) 17-15 last week. Jackson scored four goals and had four assists. The junior scored five goals and four assists in the season-opening win against Manatee (Fla.) on Feb. 19.
“I was in the zone. I could not do it without my team,” Jackson said. “I got that first goal. It was a textbook goal, and that got me going. The ball movement was there. The communication was there. My team got me to those eight points.”
Cardinal Mooney reached the Elite Eight last season. Their season ended with a 9-5 loss to eventual state champ Jupiter (Fla.).
“It was a big week during practice. We knew we had to come out with a win. It was pretty heavy on all of us to grind throughout the week and get the W,” Jackson said of the victory. “It was a big win. It was honestly a must-win. We have to show everyone that we’re that winning team from last year. There was a newspaper article saying a lot of people think we’re a one-hit wonder. We’re so driven to get to the Elite Eight or father this year.”
Dylan Frankhouser, Jupiter (Fla.)
The senior won 15-of-17 face-offs in a win over St. Andrew’s (Fla.). The Warriors defeated the Scots 12-9, and Frankhouser also chipped in a goal in the victory.
AJ Levitt, Benjamin School (Fla.)
The senior scored 11 goals and three assists in two games last week. Levitt’s performance helped the Buccaneers to a 2-0 start.
Eric Malever, Woodward Academy (Ga.)
Malever has put up 53 points in his first three games of the season and has already passed 300 career points. He is barreling his way to 400 points before the end of the year - needing just 62 points the rest of the way to get there. His latest outing had him sitting out the fourth quarter, but putting up 12 points on seven goals and five assists.
Garrett Meuninck, Starr’s Mill (Ga.)
Meuninck won 93.33 percent of his faceoffs in three games for the Panthers last week. He helped Starr’s Mill to wins over Bolles School (Fla.) and Creekside by winning 41 of 43, including a perfect 20-for-20 against Bolles.
Will Parducci, Loyola-Los Angeles (Calif.)
Parducci made 15 saves as the Cubs defeated Foothill-Santa Ana (Calif.) in a season-opening win over a state power. Parducci helped anchor a defense that held Foothill’s offense to just two goals in the first half. Parducci was a first-team All-Mission League, All-Area Defensive POY and US Lacrosse All-American last season.
Max Sanderson, Jupiter (Fla.)
Sanderson led Jupiter with four points in a 12-9 win over St. Andrew’s (Fla.) in a season opener for both teams. Sanderson scored three goals, including his second when St. Andrew’s drew within one goal in the third quarter. Sanderson also had an assist in the win.
