Orange County lacrosse never sleeps. Here is a recap from last week by the numbers:
23: Years Jon Fox has been around OC lacrosse. Throughout his time he has seen the complete evolution of the game and has been integral in the league as you see it today. He won his sixth championship this year in only the eighth year since the first Southern Section Championship was handed out in 2006.
5,510: Miles that JR Grubert was away from Orange County when he arrived in Fiji. Surprisingly, some Fijians knew about lacrosse already! Groobs had the best meal of his life in The Book of Groobs: Episode 1 Fiji.
4,000: The number of players who traveled to Colorado for 3D’s ninth annual Denver Shootout. There were over 150 teams and 60 coaches in attendance. San Clemente’s Austin Boyer played his way to an all-star appearance. He was the only OC player to make the game.
11.5: Minutes spent teaching you how to begin stringing your own head. A critical skill for any seasoned player, Cooking with Strings Part 1 brings you the basics on how to start your string job right with a solid mesh-to-top-of-plastic connection.
50: Years that UC Berkeley has had lacrosse at the club level without ever hiring a full-time coach until the hiring of Ned Webster this month. Webster is Cal’s first full-time head coach and looks to duplicate the success he had coaching NCAA DII Dominican. Webster continues the trend of top tier coaches heading to coach at the MCLA level.
71: Points that Los Al’s Tyler Miller scored in his senior year. In a move not utilized enough by OC players, Miller will build upon his senior year success and take a post-grad year at the Bridgton Academy in Maine. There he will get another chance at recruitment and find out if the East Coast is right for him.
207: Career points for Aliso Niguel’s Michael Traub during his OC career. Now Traub has moved onto play lax MIT all while putting in countless hours studying at one of the worlds most demanding universities. He credits his team and other close friends for helping him balance academics and athletics.
7: Years that Team OC has led West in producing premiere talent in women’s lacrosse. Throughout it’s seven years in existence Team OC has produced NCAA talent like no other local program on the West Coast and is back at it as they gear up for their summer campaign
