Indian Hill (Ohio) has players climbing the national and state record books and several teams are streaking in this week’s Midwest Region notebook.
Patrick Farist from Indian Hill is getting close to becoming the nation’s second-leading faceoff man in history. The senior won 21 faceoffs in his last game, giving him 1,021 for his career. He needs 114 to tie TD Ierlan’s mark of 1,135 career wins, which would place him second all-time. Indian Hill has four regular-season games remaining and up to six postseason games.
Moving On Up
Farist’s teammate, Wyatt Fruland scored 13 points in his latest game to push his career total to 320 points. That total moves him up Ohio’s all-time record list and depending on the rest of the state (and submissions), could place him among the state’s Top 5.
WCPO in Cincinnati has a great story on Brenden Malloy from Mason (Ohio). The senior has overcome health issues to become the Comet’s leading scorer this season.
Malloy had his gallbladder and spleen removed on Jan. 15 and has had an enlarged spleen for the past five or six years and maybe his whole life.
“Earlier this spring, he played three games in a week and could barely walk by Sunday. Yet Malloy was able to officiate some youth-level games. Lacrosse represents that much to his life.”
The top two teams in Missouri (according to Inside Lacrosse) meet on May 2 when MICDS (Mo.) travels to DeSmet Jesuit (Mo.). The Rams have not lost to a Missouri team since 2014 when they lost 11-10 to Christian Brothers College (Mo.). The Rams streak covers 85 consecutive games without an in-state loss.
St. Ignatius (Ohio) has yet to lose a game to an in-state opponent this season. The Wildcats are 10-3 and their only losses are to Brother Rice (Mich.), Culver Academy (Ind.) and Georgetown Prep (Md.). All three of those are nationally-ranked. St. Ignatius defeated St. Xavier (Ohio) 12-9 last week and face Dublin Jerome (Ohio) on May 4.
Upper Arlington (Ohio) is another undefeated in-state Ohio team and they face another undefeated team in Dublin Coffman (Ohio) on May 1. The Golden Bears wrap up their regular season with a game against nationally-ranked Brother Rice on May 4. Upper Arlington is 14-2 with their only losses to MICDS (Mo.) and Culver Academy.
Detroit Catholic Central (Mich.) is riding a 10-game winning streak (as of April 30) with wins over New Trier (Ill.) and St. Michael’s College (Canada). The 12-1 Shamrocks only loss this season was to Brother Rice on March 26. They face an 8-2 Rockford (Mich.) team on May 14 before finishing up the regular season against Forest Hills Central (Mich.), which is 10-1 and winners of five straight.
