Lacrosse Equipment And Protective Gear: Easton-Bell Sports Designs And Manufactures Top Sports Helmets And Protective Gear (Video)
The BYU Men’s Lacrosse team announced their captains for the upcoming season Tuesday Night. The group of 5 captains is lead by Senior Midfielders Tyler Monteath (Columbine High School, CO) and Brian Mathay (Heritage High School, CO). Joining Monteath and Mathay are Juniors Ted Ferrin (Olympus High School, UT), Drew Shumway (Bingham High School, UT), and Jared Houghton (Denver University).
Monteath returns to the Cougars this year after spending two years on a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in the Scotland, Edinburgh Mission. In his last season of action, Monteath helped lead the Cougars to their third National Championship in 2007. He earned First Team All-Conference and First Team All-America honors during the championship run. He was also First Team All-American his sophomore year in 2006. Monteath, who returned from Scotland last January, has spent the last 6 months getting his legs and skills back after a two year layoff.
“I’ve been waiting for the past three years to finish out my lacrosse career and now I have the opportunity to do it as one of the captains.” said Monteath. ”I’m so excited for this next year and am willing to do whatever it takes to help this team win its fourth National Championship.”
Monteath looks to provide a wealth of talent and skill to the first line midfield. He has gained a reputation as an all-around playmaker, not only scoring goals, but opening up shots for teammates.
“We are excited to have Tyler back on the team with us this year,” said Head Coach Matt Schneck. ”Even though Tyler had just returned home from his mission, he would have been a significant contributor on our team this past season had we decided to let him play. We wanted Tyler’s senior year to be the best it could be, one with impact and dominance, so we prepared and saved him for this year.”

Southern California High School Boys Club Lacrosse: San Diego Laxdawgs Defeated 101 Starz In 2010 Starz Lacrosse Elite Championship On Aug. 7
Elite Final: San Diego Laxdawgs vs. 101 Starz
(From InsideLacrosse.com article)
In the late-day finals the Elite match-up was one of the most highly-anticipated games of the day. The Laxdawgs are playing as the two seed today after losing to a talented SD Shredderz team last week in Regional Starz Cup finals. The “Redeem Team” has its sights set at the top of the podium as the “Creehan” coaching tandem (Dan Meehan/John Chrismer) is ready to get them there. The 101 Starz coached by Geoff Seobold, have excelled in the Starz Cup playoffs, having moved into the finals over the #1 seeded SD Shredderz in the previous semi-final bout. 101 storms out of the gate, winning the opening draw but turns the ball right over the Laxdawgs. The Laxdawgs follow suit, and immediately turn the ball over on a botched clear as 101 attackmen Grant Consoletti (Oak Park 12’) wastes no time in scoring first. 101 again regains possession off the draw, as attackmen Camron Chupp (Grace Brethren 11’) strikes again on an unassisted topside effort making the score 2- nil in the way of 101. Hungry for a goal, Laxdawgs close defender Billy Schmitt ( Coronado 11’) makes a great play on defense stripping his man, and bringing the ball up through transition. The Laxdawgs are in the hunt for the icebreaker goal as Kyle Runyon (Coronado 11’) makes a great move from X, driving the left side and taking a jump shot over his defender that sails wide. The Laxdawgs retain possession working the ball up to midfielder Warren Brody (Francis Parker 11’) who shakes his defender cleanly on a left-to-right split from X but is promptly stuffed on a doorstep attempt. Again on defense, the Laxdawgs are called for a 30 second holding penalty, as 101 works the ball around in the first extra-man opportunity of the day. Luke Hegeman (Westlake 12’) absolutely tattoos the top shelf with a lefty-laser from outside putting 101 up 3-0. Needing a spark, Laxdawgs’ midfielder Warren Brody again splits from X, feeding the crease for the first Laxdawg goal of the day. After some sloppy play on the ensuing possessions, Laxdawgs regain possession and midfielder Chris Banks (Coronado 11’) creates a spectacular dodge from the left wing, face-dodging through two 101 defenders to score low bringing the Laxdawgs within 1 goal. The Laxdawgs win the draw thanks to some fine FOGOing by Patrick Butler (La Jolla Country Day 11’) as Zack Rice (Patrick Henry 11’) capitalizes off a great look from Sergio Flores (Coronado 11’). It’s 3-3 at the half, as I make my way to the adjacent field to catch the second half of the middle school finals.
Final Score: Laxdawgs 8, 101 Starz 4
