It would appear that the typical Tuesday top ten poll is not a priority for some publications. Probably because this is lacrosse and not football, basketball or baseball. lacrosse is the fastest growing sport in the country yet Connecticut high school coverage is week, I get it why cover? if you had one of the best conferences in country you certainly would provide coverage....Oh Yah, we have the FCIAC division which is arguably one of the best if not the strongest conference in the country. But who cares it's not apparently news!
The Laxworm15 has been a staple in Connecticut High School Lacrosse for the past several years and must step up to become the central location for the sport. Connecticut has some of the top teams in the country what other sport can boast those stats - none. Darien, New Canaan, Ridgefield and Staples all can potentially be top teams in the country. It's interesting that football, basketball and baseball is provided page after page of stories and results yet the top teams in the country cannot find a story. Being the best in the country apparently is not considered news worthy. Connecticut Lacrosse receives little if any coverage, int fact, receives at best obligatory coverage - where is the real coverage? I have to ask the obvious - if this were football would the top ten rankings be non existent or if a Connecticut football team was ranked nationally would not be covered, absolutely it would receive coverage! If not for Laxworm or HAN you wouldn't even know lacrosse existed.
Well its time to take over from the so called main stream media, Laxworm will post the top 15 in the state going forward. I invite all coaches and lacrosse media to submit there rankings every Sunday evening to Laxwormradio@laxworm.com and Laxworm will publish a true and accurate ranking each Monday!
