January, 31, 2012
Boys Latin, Bob ShriverDonald Obrecht/ESPNHSBoys' Latin (Baltimore, Md.) coach Bob Shriver is 438-128 in 32 years.
ESPNHS continues its weekly feature, Around the Crease, which takes a look at players, teams and high school lacrosse news from around the country.

Record Setters

Our 2012 Season Previews have not started yet, but it is not too early to take a look at some coaches who could be reaching milestones this season.

Mike Messere should win his 750th career game this season. The West Genesee (Camillus, N.Y.) coach currently has 740 career wins and has been coaching since 1969.

Boys’ Latin (Baltimore, Md.) coach Bob Shriver looks to win his 450 career game. He is 438-128 in 32 years.

Brad Touma from Charlotte Country Day (Charlotte, N.C.) will try to win his 400th game this season. His current record is 385-109.

St. Thomas Aquinas (Fort Lauderdale, Fla.) coach Terry Crowley needs 14 wins to reach 300.

Jay Watts, Westminster (Atlanta, Ga.) girls' coach, is 16 wins away from his 250 career victory.

Ben Mrva, Hutchison (Memphis, Tenn.) girls' coach needs 12 wins to get his 100th career victory.

Steve Finnell from Garden City (Garden City, N.Y.) is 13 wins shy of 100.

Fort Mill (Fort Mill, S.C.) boys coach Jim Van Blarcom looks for his 50th career victory. His current record is 42-14.

ESPNHS will update as we discover more coaching milestones for the upcoming season. To submit coaching information, please have a head coach or assistant coach fill out our 2012 Season Preview form.

News And Notes

The 2012 high school season is just three weeks away from starting, but Florida got interesting this week with the return of the all-time leader in wins returning to the sideline.

ESPN 760 reported that Jeff Goldberg, who won 380 games and 14 state championships with St. Andrew’s (Boca Raton, Fla.) joined the coaching staff at St. Thomas Aquinas (Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.). Aquinas head coach Terry Crowley is No. 2 on Florida’s win list with 286.

Last week ESPNHS highlighted the Champion Challenge in which former ESPNHS No. 2 goalie Bridget Bianco was expected to see her first college action.

Bianco recorded nine saves in her college debut, an 18-1 loss to the US Women's National Team. The event was held at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Florida, Jan. 27-29, 2012

What You Might Have Missed

Top Story: Having been the first team selected for the 2012 Under Armour Underclass All-Star Lacrosse Tournament, the West team has gained a number of views and is the most viewed story on ESPNHS for the second straight week.

The roster features 15 players from California, five from Colorado, two from Nevada and one each from Arizona and Washington.

The remainder of tryouts will be held starting in June, beginning June 2 with the South. For a complete listing of 2012 tryouts you can visit the Under Armour site here.

Top Boys’ Commitment: One advantage of our 2012 Season Preview form is picking up commitments that we were not aware of before. That is what happened when we received our information for Memphis University School (Memphis, Tenn.) junior Peyton Klawinski, who was selected as the No. 50 junior. The midfielder has chosen North Carolina.

Top Girls’ Commitment: Another Top 50 Junior has chosen her college destination. The No. 14 player in the ESPNHS Top 50 Junior list, Linda Attanasio from Garden City (Garden City, N.Y.), has verbally committed to play women's lacrosse for Dartmouth.

Looking Ahead

As ESPNHS gets ready to launch its 2012 Season Previews on Feb. 7 we spend this week discussing what it takes to get ranked in the POWERADE FAB 50 (Feb. 1) and what to expect during our previews (Feb. 3).

A complete look at what lies ahead can be found on our 2012 Season Preview Central home page.
