We’ve focused primarily in this space on lacrosse in the nation’s No. 1 lacrosse hotbed, the Hudson Valley/Long Island/Connecticut region.

Within the region, varsity teams routinely cross county and even state borders to play against one another, resulting in some of the best matchups each year in the nation.

Just to the west of this region, there are also some of the nation’s premier programs.

We’re talking, of course, about the Garden State.

In the latest installment of our column on tristate lax for InsideLacrosse.com, we run down some of the New Jersey-based programs, like Summit (pictured above), in recapping National Letter of Intent Fall Early Signing Week.

We also recap some of the signings and commitments we reported on here last week.

Before we close, just a quick reminder.

Don’t forget to exercise your right to vote by participating in our latest poll.

Here’s the question:
