The 2019 lacrosse season ended with the Walton boys and Milton girls taking home the 6A-7A trophy, while Westminster’s boys and the Starr’s Mill girls won in A-5A.
Here’s one final look at how my predictions for the tournament fared. (Article continues after predictions)
As you can see, it was a tough year for my bracket. I only got Milton’s boys correct — and what a year it has been for them having also won the AAAAAAA football title. In fact, according to MaxPreps, five players — Alec Hutchinson, Holden Canouse, William Stax, Zack Tumminia and Zander Barnett — were on both Eagles teams.
Just goes to show that rankings, predictions, naysayers and frontrunners mean nothing — it all comes down to the games played between the lines. Congratulations to the champions.
Be on the lookout for the AJC’s lacrosse players of the year to be released in the coming weeks as part of the AJC high school athletes of the year package. There will be one boys and girls player named. Last year, Lambert’s Gerard Kane and Cambridge’s Bailey Hawkins took home the honors.
This is the final post for the 2018-19 school year. It’s always amazing how fast the school year goes by once it begins. As the beat writer for Class AA football and basketball, and as the lacrosse writer for all classifications, I have to say it’s been a blast.
I’ll see you again in late-July, early-August, when it’s time to begin previewing the 2019 football season.
Enjoy the summer.
