We’ve been having regular reports on high school sophomores making college commitments for nearly two years now.

The trend has now being examining by media outlets throughout the nation — most recently The New York Times, in a story this past Saturday.

Here are links to some of the stories:

* Baltimore Sun – March 16, 2012: For boys lacrosse players, the recruiting process is starting earlier than ever

* Buffalo News – May 8, 2012: Boys lacrosse sees early risers: Verbal commitment common for sophomores

*  New York Times, May 26, 2012: Unease in lacrosse amid race for earlier commitments


It’s Memorial Day, and that means Championship Day in Division I men’s college lacrosse as Maryland takes on Loyola in an all-Maryland final in Foxborough, Mass.

Northwestern outlasted Syracuse 8-6 last night to win the Division I women’s title.
