NATIONAL HIGH SCHOOL LACROSSE SHOWCASE
Where top high school teams compete and players get recruited.
Fall Session, Saturday November 17, 2018
The Flyers became the first team outside of the Baltimore and Washington, DC area to win the National High School Lacrosse Showcase (NHSLS). With the NHSLS just completing its fourth year, the previous champions have been Georgetown Prep and two time winner McDonogh School.
With 43 high school teams competing, just making the eight team playoff field was a challenge. The playoff field was full of lacrosse powerhouse programs: Gilman, Culver, Calvert Hall, Loyola (MD), Ward Melville, St. Paul’s, Gonzaga, and the Flyers.
The Flyers displayed tremendous athleticism and great stick skills over the entire weekend. With three straight victories during the elimination round, over traditional MIAA heavyweights Calvert Hall, Gilman, and St. Paul’s, the Flyers with their 8-3 victory over St. Paul’s in the championship game, clearly proved to be the top team in the 2016 NHSLS.
In the newly created Session II of the NHSLS, twenty teams competed, with nationally ranked programs littering the field. Garden City (34), New Canaan, Haverford, Paul VI, Garnett Valley, and Northport led the field.
In an eight team playoff field, it was Haverford and New Canaan that survived to get to the championship game. In a very competitive, intense game, played in 90 degree weather, it was Haverford taking home the trophy with a 10-7 victory.
