Just noticed in the N&O that the NC Coaches Association holds East-West All Star games for graduated seniors, picked from across all divisions (4A/3A/2A/1A), in boys and girls soccer, basketball and football
These games were just held in Greensboro
Is their any attempt to add lacrosse to this annual event?
The N&O article stated the football game was in its 66th year
I'm sure soccer and basketball were added later
Would be great if lax could be added to this showcase event

Thank you for the update on Coach Fulbright. I knew that he was a football coach first, officiated lacrosse for several years and then "stepped up to the plate" to lead and grow the Leesville lacrosse program.
Wishing him much luck at Heritage and thank you for what you did at Leesville.

Coach Fulbright - Leesville
Coach Fulbright is also a football coach. He left Leesville to join the football staff at Heritage.
He did an outstanding job starting and building the Leesville program, taking them from club status to varsity status.
At the varsity level his teams went 8-8, 12-5 and 14-2, winning their conference this past season
He was Conference Coach of the Year in 2013 & 2014, and Eastern Region Coach of the Year in 2013
His outstanding contributions and leadership to the Leesville lacrosse program will always be remembered.

Go Team Carolina Elite @ Hotbeds
TCE is 29-3 this summer and playing Smithtown West (LI, NY) in the Sweet16 at Hotbeds tomorrow. TCE is a pleasure to watch combining stingy Defense from the poles and between the pipes, winning the ground game all over the field, and offensively spreading around the scoring and consistently finding the easy goals through extra passes. TCE has gotten past strong competition from Philly, Long Island, NJ, and Minnesota over the past few days and have been a joy to watch. Cheering for them to push through the last day at Hotbeds! Go TCE.

Did coach Fulbright step down as head coach at leesville or go somewhere else. I felt that he did an admirable job just getting the program up and going and assembled a staff of knowledgeable assistant coaches.

Did TC & THLC teams play this summer? It seems that TC is the best travel team in NC at the elite level but it seems the younger TC teams are not as good. Is it because of all the new clubs in and around Charlotte? Are more players staying home to play for their local travel teams and moving more towards showcases?

I agree with that being the potential conference rankings for that conference but it will be interesting to see if anything shifts this year. Is Cardinal Gibbons moving up to 4A or staying at 3A?
Also with some new teams coming in that can always potentially shake things up, it seems like they have no interest in splitting the two Raleigh based conferences from their natural "football" conferences but at some point they will have to as teams join and the conferences are just to big. 4 Conferences of 4-5 in Raleigh would allow for more outside conference matchups, but at the same time the conferences are also starting to be really competitive as seen last year with a lot of teams beating each other and making it an exciting end of the season with there being a home and home and seeing who finishes where.

Team Carolina Commitments
Team Carolina Elite announced today that 11 of its players this season have committed to College lacrosse 9 Rising seniors and 2 Rising Juniors. The link is below. Congratulations boys!
Cardinal Gibbons 96th and Charlotte Latin 164th in the Country? Wow. Neither of these NC schools get any respect.... or is it that we (NC Scholastic lacrosse) simply have a long way to go? I understand that these "ratings" don't mean a whole heck of a lot in the grand scheme of things, but I would put both Gibbons and Latin up against so many of those teams rated ahead of them...any day. 6 Georgia schools are rated higher than our two best? Weird!? Its time for NC coaches, directors and leaders of our lacrosse chapters and state to come together and do more self promoting of our great teams and programs, so our players don't get left behind in the recruiting battles. Kids from TX, SC and GA are getting recruited and are attending big time ACC, Big Ten and Ivy schools with the help of lacrosse. Clearly we have players that also should qualify for similar "looks". We have a zip code problem in our state and we need to come together to change the perception that lacrosse in NC is not on par with other emerging states. My two cents

TSL / Cannons Elite team wins Hogan Revolution Tournament
The TSL/Cannons HS Elite team won their second straight tournament sweeping all of their games at the Hogan Revolution tournament.
Off to Patriot Games in mid July for their last tournament.
Again, what a great group of boys who simply love playing with one another...and it shows. Coach Ed Raymond deserves a lot of credit for the time he puts in and the loose nature of his coaching style. Again Congratulations boys!

Congratulations to the TSL / Cannons High School Elite team for winning the Baltimore Trilogy Masters tournament this past weekend in Maryland.
This is really great group of talented kids who have been playing together for some time now, and are really clicking as a "team". Fun to watch. Good Luck the rest of the summer.

Yes, it has been quite quiet on the forum this summer
I was trolling various lax websites just to pass the time and I saw on the Laxpower.com job vacancy file that Jordan Coach Sliwa is now at Northern Durham. What happened with Northern coach Terry? I guess now Northern will improve quite a bit with Sliwa at the helm. Anyone know who the new Jordan coach will be?
Also saw that North Raleigh Christian was seeking a varsity head coach for next year, hadn't heard of them previously so is this a new program?
09 :32 06/24/2014
The Jake Reed Blue Chip showcase for rising juniors 2016s) is taking place this week. Has anyone heard any reports from the NC boys participating?
Also, any new NC commitments this summer? It has been quite on the forum this summer so far.
Team Carolina Elite made it to the Final Four in the NSCLA / Warrior Tournament in Richmond two weeks ago. Looks like they lost to the Canadian Edge by one goal.

Player of the year
I just want to congratulate Gannon. What a year and HS career he has had. What else could a player do ? All time points leading at Gibbons, probably the state if they put in his stats for all 4 years, two time all American, state championship team and MVP of the Great 38 . I am sure I am missing many. I enjoyed watching you play and grateful my son has had the chance to play with you.

Lacrosse in Fayetteville
Lacrosse is about to come to the public schools in Cumberland County. Pending final board approval, both Jack Britt and Terry Sanford will field club teams in 2015 and join the NCHSAA in 2016. With the growing youth program in Fayetteville, I feel that it will only be a short time before most of the Cumberland Co. schools are all playing lacrosse.

Top 20 in NC
The post of the Top 20 list is a ranking of NC high schools highest LaxPower Ratings over the past 10 years. Each team was only listed once using their highest LP Rating over the past 10 years.....NWGHS 2013 team was listed because the 2013 rating was higher than the State Champion 2011 team (96.51 vs. 96.13).
