10th Annual AJO4LAX Fest HS Lacrosse Classic Match-ups Announced
Marietta, GA January 31, 2016 – Most years, lacrosse fans wait patiently until the playoffs, and ultimately the state championship game at the end of the season, to see the best local high school players and teams in action, but this is no ordinary year.
Saturday, March 19, marks the 10th anniversary of the AJO4LAX Fest at Pope High School Stadium, and the popular, binge lacrosse-watching event features some of the most highly anticipated varsity lacrosse action of the young season:
10am: Woodward v. Cambridge
12noon: Walton v. Johns Creek
2pm: Lambert v. Lovett
4pm: Harrison v. Centennial
6pm: Pope v. Westminster
Team highlights: Westminster is the defending Division 1-5A State Champion, having defeated Lovett in the 2015 title match. Pope was runner-up in last season’s Division 6A State Championship Game, and Cambridge played in the Division 1-5A semi-finals. Harrison v. Centennial promises to be a shootout involving two high-powered offenses, while Pope v. Westminster looks to be a battle of top-notch defensive units.
Standout players to watch at this year’s AJO4LAXFest include several who will soon be playing lacrosse at the D-1 college level: Westminster’s star D/LSM Raines Shamburger (Duke). Cambridge senior midfielder Taylor Sanna (Quinnipiac) and junior goalie Ben Clark (Bucknell), Woodward’s junior offensive threat Ben Wilkinson (Richmond). Centennial sophomore attackman Nicky Solomon who scored 59 goals and 74 assists last year as a freshman (UNC). Lambert senior FOGO Trey Arnold (Robert Morris) and Lovett’s Crosby Mathews (Delaware) are considered two of the best faceoff middies in the state, while Pope’s Michael Oswald is considered a top prospect in the goal.
A single ticket ($7 adults and $3 children) grants admission to all five games. Proceeds help to endow the Andrew J. Oswald Memorial Fund LTD, a 501(c)3 organization that awards annual scholarships to standout Atlanta area student athletes who will continue playing lacrosse at the college level. The Fund also makes grants to deserving area varsity and youth lacrosse programs, provides low-cost lacrosse equipment rentals, and sponsors teen safe driving initiatives.
AJO4LAX honors the memory of Andrew Oswald, a star Pope High School varsity attackman who tragically died in a single-vehicle automobile accident in 2005. The event takes its name from combining Andrew’s initials, the #4 game jersey he wore, and his passion for lacrosse.

LACROSSE PLAYOFFS: Northview girls eclipse Effingham County
By Donald Heath
Special for the Effingham Herald
SPRINGFIELD — When your lacrosse program is less than two years old, every game is a learning experience — even in the state tournament.
“Last year, with the season being cut short, we didn’t even know what the playoffs looked like,” Effingham County girls lacrosse coach Jane Trzaska said.
Trzaska and her Rebels understand there’s a lot of work ahead before being competitive with established programs like Northview High from Johns Creek.
The Titans, who dropped down from Class 6A-7A this season because of enrollment, scored seven goals during the opening five minutes and overpowered ECHS 20-2 in the first round of the Class A-5A girls state lacrosse championship April 28.
Grace Pritchard and Audrey Ubernosky scored goals for the Rebels, who concluded their season with a 3-7 record.
But Trzaska doesn’t want the girls to put their sticks away. The more they play, the better they’ll get.
“I know some of the girls will be playing in the summer so that always helps and we’ll start practicing in the summer with conditioning,” Trzaska said.
Last season, in their first year competing in the Georgia High School Association, the girls played only three games before COVID-19 cancelled the remainder of the season and, just as importantly, limited summer conditioning and workouts. The Rebels began playing lacrosse as a club sport in 2019.
Trzaska says the future is promising. Assistant Amber Roe played lacrosse in college and has been instrumental in teaching fundamentals and strategy.
ECHS can take some satisfaction in defeating rival South Effingham twice along with Savannah Christian once during the season.
And the Rebels managed to stay enthusiastic despite a rash of injuries. Faith Strickland started in goal Wednesday — ECHS’ third starting goalie of the season.
“We had a little bit of everything injury-wise,” Trzaska said. “If you put injuries in a hat and shook it up and pulled one out, we probably had it. It was definitely an adventure this year. But we continued to learn things and improve things. I’m excited to see how much these girls improve in the future.”
Fellowship Christian 20, So. Effingham 0
High-scoring Fellowship Christian rolled past South Effingham’s girls in the opening round of the Class A-5A state lacrosse championship.
The Paladins, who average more than 17 goals a game, raised their record to 14-3 and will play Starr’s Mill in the second round.
SEHS ended its season 1-10.
Blessed Trinity 15, Effingham Co. 0
Undefeated and top-ranked Blessed Trinity of Roswell blanked the Effingham County boys in the opening round of the Class A-5A state lacrosse championship.
The Titans (18-0) advanced to play McIntosh in the second round.
ECHS ended its season with a 7-8 record.
Texas High School Lacrosse Playoffs, Division I Matchups and Previews
The Texas High School Lacrosse Super Regional Matchups have been determined and the top 4 teams from each division (North Division, South Division, and Central Division) will face-off against each other this weekend in a battle to determine which 4 teams will move on and compete for the State Championship next weekend. Dallas Jesuit, Austin High, Houston Christian, and Westlake all earned themselves first-round byes in this weekend’s Super Regionals based on their play throughout the regular season. They await the outcome of Saturday’s 4 matchup games to see which team they will face on Sunday in the games that will determine which teams advance to next weekend’s Championships.
The Division I Super Regionals will be played at a North District Location (Hillcrest High School) and a South District location (Houston Christian High School). The Central District will host this year’s State Championship games at Georgetown High School just north of Austin, TX. The Super Regional’s and State Championship brackets and matchup breakdowns are below.
Super Regionals North Location (Hillcrest High School)
Game 1, Anderson vs. St. John’s: Central District’s #3 seed, Anderson, faces off against the South District’s #3 seed, St. John’s. This is an intriguing matchup between an Anderson team who has been hot-and-cold this season and a St. John’s team that has been very consistent. St. John’s is favored in this matchup due to their consistent play against top competition throughout the season, but Anderson seems to have found its groove as of late and comes into the playoffs with momentum. Anderson is led by All-State Attackman Marshall Allen (2013) and All-State Defender Riley Vickers (2012). St. John’s is led by 4 All-State players in defenseman Ben Griffin (2013), defenseman Jack Craddock (2012), LSM Logan Smith (2013), and midfielder Chris Gow (2012). The winner will face a stiff test against the North District’s #1 seed and tournament favorite, Dallas Jesuit, on Sunday. Dallas Jesuit is led by a number of standout All-State players, including attackman Zach Coker (2013), midfielder Garrett Van de Ven (2013), defensemen Michael McCarney (2012), and goalie Dan Morris (2013).
Game 2, Highland Park vs. The Woodlands: The North District’s #4 seed, Highland Park, squares off against the South District’s #2 seed, The Woodlands. Highland Park was on the verge of missing out on the playoffs this year but pulled out a thrilling overtime victory over Episcopal School of Dallas to secure the #4 seed from the North District. They face a stiff test against the Woodlands, who have fared well against top competition all year long and who many are expecting to make a deep run in this year’s playoffs. Highland Park is led by All-State Midfielders Daniel Wenz (2012) and Domenic Massimilian (2012). The Woodlands is led by 5 All-State players in defender Dylan Gorman (2012), attackman Spencer Willey (2012), midfielders Ian Seale (2012) and Ben Lipscomb (2013), and freshman face-off specialist Jake Williams (2015). The winner will face Central District’s #2 seed, Austin High. Austin High played both these teams in a back-to-back early season weekend matchup, beating Highland Park 16-7 before losing to the Woodlands 19-3 the following day. Austin High is led by All-State midfielder Jake Hiebert (2012) and attackman Mitch Reeder (2012).
Super Regionals South Location (Houston Christian High School)
Game 1, Westwood vs. Plano West: The Central District’s #4 seed, Westwood, will face the North District’s #3 seed, Plano West. These two teams faced each other in a tight regular season game that saw Plano West squeak out the 8-7 win. Both teams have had their share of ups-and-downs since they last played each other, but Plano West comes into this game with momentum after upsetting Coppell last week to earn themselves a playoff spot. Westwood is led by All-State midfielders Michael Morgan (2012) and Jordan Glynn (2012). Plano West is led by All-District Attackman Ryan Schaffer (2013). The winner of this matchup will face a stiff test on Sunday against the South District’s #1 seed, Houston Christian, who’s had a fantastic regular season winning a number of close games against top teams en route to their #1 seeding. However, they did lose to Westwood early in the season in a closely fought 1-goal game. Houston Christian is led by 5 All-State players in attackman Bucky Desadier (2012), attackman Brooks Lehle (2013), midfielder Connor Pryor (2013), defender Hayden Sterling (2012), and goalie Malachy Lyons-Letts (2012).
Game 2, Episcopal Houston vs. St. Mark’s: The South District’s #4 seed, Episcopal Houston, will face the North District’s #2 seed, St. Mark’s. A matchup against St. Mark’s in the first round of the playoffs is something that no team hoped to see. However, after a sluggish early-season start, Episcopal Houston is playing great lacrosse and they face a St. Mark’s team that’s been plagued by late-season injuries. Episcopal Houston is led by 3 All-State players in attackman Max Skibber (2012), midfielder Max Hutson (2012), and defenseman Steve Pitt (2012). St. Mark’s is led by 3 All-State players of their own in attackman Will Perkins (2012), midfielder Christopher Marlow (2014), and defenseman Bear Goldstein (2013), to go along with a number of All-District players, as well. The winner of this matchup will face Central District’s #1 seed, Westlake. After a difficult early-season stretch against many of the top teams in the state (which included an 11-8 loss to St. Mark’s) Westlake is playing great lacrosse and is poised to make a deep run in this year’s playoffs. Westlake is led by 9 All-State players this year, in attackmen Jacob Rockwell (2012) and Hayden Byrd (2013), midfielders Matt Gabriel (2012) and Blake Kemper (2012), defenders Michael Edwards (2013), Ben Chabala (2012), Connor White (2012), and John Dodd (2013), and goalie Jackson Grimes (2012).
The 4 teams that survive and advance this weekend will square off next weekend in the semi-final games of the State Championship Playoffs.

High School 9:12 bringing lacrosse to the forefront with 16-team tournament
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – High School 9:12 is expanding its sports tournament platform and adding lacrosse to its lineup.
The organization announced on Tuesday that it would put on the Rivalry on the River next month at Episcopal. The field includes 10 boys teams and six girls teams.
All games will be streamed on News4Jax.com and its mobile app. The final four games on Saturday will be televised live on CW17 and broadcast on 1010XL radio.
High School 9:12 made the announcement during its annual all-sports media day.
Coach Jennifer Shields, Piper Young and Kayla Robinson during High School 9:12 media day at the Riverside YMCA.
“You’ve just seen the whole sport over the last decade really transform into one of the best sports in our city,” said Alan Verlander, executive director of High School 9:12.
“Like all of our other events that we do in high school we really want to showcase our best and brightest and so we decided to do that on the boys and girls side this year, which is a first for us.”
The move into lacrosse expands the 9:12 tournament brand even further and provides marquee matchups in regular season games. Some of the state’s best programs play in St. Johns County and those teams headline the first event.
The Ponte Vedra and Bartram Trail girls play at noon on March 27, and the Ponte Vedra and Creekside boys face off in the finale of the event that day. The Sharks boys went 24-1 during the last full lacrosse season in 2019 and won their first ever state championship. They were also the No. 1-ranked team in the country.
“I think it’s great for the growth of the sport,” said Sharks boys coach Tom West. “It’s just great when you don’t have to leave the state or leave the area to play some of the best teams. When the best teams are in the area it’s only going to be better for everybody. Iron sharpens iron. And I think if all these teams are in this area then you’re just going to have all these competitive games and it’s just going to be the best.”
The Baseball Classic at Sans Souci Park just wrapped up its third installment earlier this month. The Fortegra Invitational basketball event last December was also the third. High School 9:12 is also involved with the Bold City Showcase football event, too. The third installment of the Bold City brand scheduled for Aug. 22 was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Tickets for the event are $10 per day or $80 for VIP entry, tickets for all games, as well as food and drinks.
“As THE local station, our team at Channel 4 and CW17 is proud to partner with High School 9:12 in broadcasting these championship caliber events,” said Bob Ellis, general manager of the Graham Media Group in Jacksonville. “We look forward to a great weekend of lacrosse and introducing our community to these talented student-athletes.”

Professional Indoor Lacrosse League
National Lacrosse League ( NBL ) is the men’s professional boxing lacrosse league in North America.NLL is headquartered in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and currently has thirteen teams, eight in the United States and five in Canada. The NLL has the third highest average attendance in professional indoor sports in the world, behind only the NHL and the NBA. Unlike other boxing lacrosse leagues that take place in the summer, the NLL has its games in the winter and spring, from December to June. Each year, the playoff teams battle it out for the National Lacrosse League Cup. Since 2004, the NLL has attracted between 8,900 and 10,700 spectators annually for the game.
SDLO plays four 15-minute quarters with 2-minute breaks between the quarter and 16-minute half-time. If, after the allotted time, the game ends in a draw, both teams play overtime for sudden death. Each team dresses 19 players: 2 goalkeepers and 17 runners. The NLL gate is 4 feet wide and 4 feet high. NLL uses a 30 second shot timer. The fight is a 5 minute main penalty and does not result in an automatic roll.
Season & Playoffs
Each team in the NLL plays eighteen games during the regular season, nine home and nine away. The teams are divided into three divisions: the eastern and northern divisions with four teams and the western division with five teams. Each team plays at least nine of the eighteen regular season games against opponents from a division, and each team plays each team in the other divisions once. NLL games are played on Friday and Saturday evenings, with the exception of rare Sunday games.
The regular season starts in December and ends in April. Beginning in 2018, the league announced that the playoffs will be expanded to eight teams, taking into account the expansion. In the 2021 playoffs, three division winners will be seeded 1–3 and three division winners will be seeded 4–6. The two teams in the league with the best remaining records will be seeded at # 7 and # 8. Once seeding has been determined, the tournament will be played as a standard eight-team draw, excluding divisions.The first two rounds are held until one elimination, and the championship round – until wins up to three.
Players90,046 NLL has set a soft cap on salaries of US $ 400,000 per team for the 2013 season. The median base salary as of the 2013 season was $ 19,135. The maximum salary for a franchised player is approximately $ 34,000.
Most NLL players have full-time outdoor jobs, such as Buffalo’s John Tavares, a high school teacher in Mississauga, Ontario.
Although eight of the thirteen teams are based in the United States, less than 7% of the players are American. About 83% of Canadians and 10% of Iroquois are from Canada or the United States.

Lacrosse League Eagle Pro Box
The major professional boxing lacrosse renaissance in the United States occurred on March 13, 1986, with the formation of Eagle Pro Box Lacrosse League (EPBLL), which included Russ Kline and Chris Fritz.Earlier in 1985, boxing lacrosse sponsored an event that was played out at the Spectrum in Philadelphia. The USA / Canada Super Series was an eight-game series, the forerunner of the Major League Indoor Lacrosse.
The League opened the 1987 season with two games on January 10, 1987: the Philadelphia Wings at the New Jersey Saints (Philadelphia beat New Jersey 11–8) and Baltimore Thunder on the Washington Wave. Darrell Russell was named league commissioner.
Four teams competed in the six-game regular season ahead of the postseason, in which all four teams qualified for a singles elimination tournament that ended with the Baltimore Thunder becoming the first EPBLL champion in 1987.Coached by Bob Griebe, the Baltimore Thunder defeated the Washington Wave 11–10 to capture the league’s first championship.
The League announced that 124,536 fans attended the first season of the Eagle Pro Box Lacrosse League. The same four teams played in the second season of EPBLL. The teams expanded to an eight-game schedule and staged a three-team playoff in which the regular season winner demanded a goodbye to the title game.
Major League Indoor Lacrosse
The league began its second season, with each of the four teams playing on an eight-game schedule. The league became known as the Major League of Indoor Lacrosse (MILL).
New Jersey Saints finished second in the Champions League by defeating Washington Wave, 17-16 to 8,125 fans in the center of the capital. For Volna, this was the second time in many years that they entered the championship match only to break away from the game with one goal.
The league then announced that the Saints would move to the Nassau Colosseum on Long Island starting in the 1989 season.The team’s name was changed to New York Saints to reflect their new home. MILL has announced that it will reward expansion teams to Detroit, Michigan and Boston, Massachusetts. The teams began playing in the 1989 season. Detroit’s team was named Turbos and started playing at the Joe Louis Arena. Their team colors were announced as purple, silver and black. The Boston club was called the New England Blazers, and they played their home games at Worcester Center. The Blazers used green, orange and white as their team’s colors.
The league was preparing to open its third season with six teams: Baltimore Thunder, Detroit Turbos, New England Blazers, New York Saints, Philadelphia Wings and Washington Wave. Each of the six teams played in 1989 on an eight-game schedule, including four home and away. In their first regular season game, 12,171 Detroit fans watched the Turbos expansion defeat the Washington Wave, 11-9, in its 1989 season debut. During the season, league regular season attendance totaled 230,724 in 24 regular season games, averaging 9,614 spectators per game.With the addition of the postseason, the total number of players has grown to 255,088, averaging 9,811 per game.90,046 Later that year, the Philadelphia Wings won the league championship in front of a record 16,042 spectators on the Spectrum after the season ended, beating the New York Saints 11-10. After playing for the championship, the league announced an expansion to Pittsburgh, a team that would later be called the Bulls, which played at the Civic Arena, playing in Pittsburgh’s traditional black and gold colors, just like the Steelers.
In 1990, MILL was preparing to open its fourth season with six teams: Baltimore Thunder, Detroit Turbos, New England Blazers, New York Saints, Philadelphia Wings and Pittsburgh Bulls. Each of the six teams played on an eight-game schedule in the 1990 season. Towards the end of the season, the New York Saints beat the Philadelphia Wings 8-5 ahead of the first full house and largest crowd in league history: 17,177 players at the Spectrum in Philadelphia. The Saints’ victory prompted a rematch in the playoffs next week.However, Wings won the game and later became the first team to win two league championship games, beating New England 17-7 in front of 11,479 fans.90,046 Later, the Major League Indoor Lacrosse announced that attendance at 26 games during the season was 287,585, a huge increase, increasing the average attendance per game to 11,060. After the season, MILL announced that it had signed with twin brothers, Paul Gate and Gary Gate, a three-time All-American from Syracuse to the Detroit Turbos after being drafted (the two brothers won national championships with Syracuse Orange in 1988, 1989, and 1990).
The league was preparing for the opening of the fifth season with the same six teams. However, this season, the schedule has increased from 8 to 10 games, each of which played five games at home and five games away.
In the first game of the regular season, Detroit rookie twin brothers Paul and Gary Gate made a successful debut as they beat the Turbos 20-16 over the Baltimore Thunder.
The 1991 season was definitely a record season, especially in Detroit.Turbo’s twin rookies, Paul and Gary Gate, are setting new standards in most offensive categories. Paul scored a record 47 goals while Gary was second in the league with 32. Gary set new records with 36 assists and 68 points. As a team, Detroit set records for goals scored – 184, assists – 227 and total points – 411.
Detroit Turbos defeated Baltimore Thunder, 14–12, to win their fifth league title and first Turbos title. The World Championship match at the Baltimore Arena was attended by 10,814 people.
The League announced that Buffalo were named the expansion team for the 1992 season. The team was named the Bandits, dressed in black, orange and white, and their home was in the Memorial Hall. The league promoted the team alongside the Buffalo Sabers.90,046 The league’s total attendance for the 1991 season reached 287,654.
On April 20, 1991, the National Division All-Stars defeated the American Division All-Stars, 25–20, in the first League All-Star Game at Spectrum in Philadelphia.
The league opened a sixth season with seven teams with the Buffalo Bandits expansion joining the league. Each of the seven teams played on an eight-game schedule, including four home and four away.
Buffalo Bandits defeated Philadelphia Wings, 20-11, in their first-ever sale of 16,325 at the Memorial Auditorium. This was the second sale in league history. The Buffalo Bandits defeated the Baltimore Thunder in front of their second sold-out crowd of the season at the Memorial Auditorium, 16,325.This also marks the first time a team has sold tickets for two games in a single season.
The Buffalo Bandits expansion progressed to play for the league title, defeating the Detroit Turbos and the Gate Brothers (19-16) to claim the national division crown. The Philadelphia Wings beat the Saints, 8-6, to win the American Division title.
This is the first time an expansion team won a league world championship as the Buffalo Bandits beat the Philadelphia Wings, 11–10, in extra time.
Buffalo won its second consecutive league championship with a 13-12 comeback win over the Philadelphia Wings to 16.325 to a sold-out at Memorial Hall. The Thugs maintained their 18-game winning streak, the longest in professional sports. Buffalo joined Wings as the only team in league history to win consecutive championships.
The League and the Players’ Association announced a three-year contract, and the league signed a six-year agreement with ESPN.
ESPN2’s first night broadcast on Monday showed the Detroit Turbos against the Baltimore Thunder.
The Philadelphia Wings denied the Buffalo Bandits their third consecutive World Cup, beating the Bandits, 26-15, in front of a sold-out crowd of 16,284 in Memorial Hall. The victory gave Krylya the third league title in its history – more than any other team in the league. ESPN broadcast the game live from Buffalo, making it ESPN’s first live broadcast of a league match.
The League announced that Rochester, NY will receive an expansion team for the 1995 season.
The Rochester Nighthawks expansion won its first game 12–8 against the New York Saints at the War Memorial.
Philadelphia breaks the league’s attendance record with 17,380 fans watching the Wings defeat the Baltimore Thunder in the regular season final.
For the first time in league history, Paul Gate of Rochester played against his twin brother Gary Gate of Philadelphia.
The Philadelphia Wings have won consecutive championships by beating Rochester Nighthawks (15-14) in a thrilling game after extra time. As of 1995, Wings have won four league titles in their nine-year history.
