It’s 13.

And counting.

That’s the number of sophomores from the nation’s No. 1 lax hotbed, the New York/New Jersey/Connecticut tristate region, who have committed to Division I programs.

The latest was made this past week by Sachem North defenseman Michael Aronow.

That was one of the top stories in tristate lax during a week in which one of the leading players at Manhasset, and one of the top players in Section 1, made their college commitments, along with three native Canadians who play for the Triniity Pawling School in New York’s Hudson Valley.

You can get a rundown on all that in our latest weekly column on tristate lax at
