Earlier this year, LaxRecords highlighted Cullen Robinette from Durango (Colo.) as he was approaching a program record. The senior scored 11 points on eight goals and three assists in a win over Prairie View (Colo.) to make him the first player in program history to have 100 career goals and 100 career assists.
He needs 33 points to set the program scoring record, which is held by his older brother Kyle. Robinette has 50 points through five games.
Trinity (Ky.) went on the road and defeated Archbishop Moeller (Ohio) 10-9 on Saturday. That was the sixth-straight win for the Shamrocks after they dropped their first two games of the year to Montgomery Bell Academy (Tenn.) and Pope (Ga.).
Trinity led 7-4 by halftime and withstood a second half in which Moeller outscored them 5-3.
Jack McClellan made 11 saves and Gavin Noland recorded a hat trick for Trinity in the win.
Trinity’s schedule doesn’t get easier this week with a rivalry game against St. Xavier (Ky.) on March 27. They face St. Xavier (Ohio) on April 23 and Culver Academy (Ind.) on April 27.
New Club Members
Yasir Stroud from Durham Jordan (N.C.) reached the 200 Club with a six-point game against Cary (N.C.) last week. The senior has 33 points through six games to bring his career total to 210.
Cade Newton from South Elgin (Ill.) joined the 300 Club with a four goal, three assist performance against Jacobs (Ill.) on Tuesday. The senior is coming off a 48-point season and already has 22 through three games this year. The senior has yet to score fewer than seven points in any game this season.
The Streak Is Over
Harvard-Westlake (Calif.) ended the 20-game win streak of Loyola-Los Angeles (Calif.) last week. Loyola had not lost to a Los Angles-based team since they lost to Palos Verdes (Calif.) in 2017. Harvard scored the first four goals of the game and never trailed.
Heartbreak and Healing
The Steamboat Springs (Colo.) team is reeling from the loss of a teammates father after Kieran Hahn’s dad, Chris Hahn, died unexpectedly while filming in the press box just before halftime.
The game was suspended and the team voted on whether to play their next game against Glenwood (Colo.) on March 20. The Sailors voted to play and came away with a 14-7 win.
“It was a good game for us to get our emotions out and enjoy good competition,” Sailors head coach Jay Lattimore told the Steamboat Pilot
Big Head 2?
It seems like an odd story to happen twice this year, but another lacrosse player is unable to play because his head is too big.
In a report from Channel 21 in Delaware, Billy Boyd is a freshman at Cape Henlopen (Del.) and has a head that measures 25 inches around. The average grown mans' head is roughly 21 to 23 inches.
Boyd has yet to find a helmet that fits nor a custom helmet that be approved. Regulation helmets aren’t available in his size, so he’s not allowed to compete.
Earlier this season Alex Chu from Wheaton College was unable to play because his head was more than 25 inches. The largest helmets available in stores are 24 inches.
Cascade Maverik Lacrosse Vice President Roland LaRose told Channel 21 that a Boyd-sized helmet may be possible now that the company has developed “an alternative manufacturing process.”
Chu received a custom Cascade helmet in late February.
Tom Corcoran got his first career win as the head lacrosse coach at West Islip (N.Y.). Corcoran took over for former head coach Scott Craig who retired following the 2018 season. The Lions defeated Eastport-South Manor (N.Y.) 7-5 to get the first win of his career.
Rob Ambrose got his first win as head coach of Bronxville (N.Y.) last week. The Broncos defeated Pelham (N.Y.) 16-4, getting five goals and an assist from Tim Murray in the victory. Ambrose is Michigan’s all-time wins leader and took over the Bronxville program just before the start of the season.
