NCAA Lacrosse: Stanford Women’s Lacrosse Freshman Attacker Kelsey Murray (New Trier HS, IL) Brings High-Scoring (72 Goals) And Academic Achievement (4.96 GPA) Resume To The Cardinal


Stanford Women's Lacrosse BannerKelsey Murray falls into the ahead-of-the-curve category. Going from a decorated high school career in Illinois to a promising college career on the West Coast at Stanford qualifies as much.

But her goals are familiar.

“I loved that the athletics were so important there. It’s definitely a big part of the culture,” Murray said. “You walk around and there are these banners that say ‘Home of Champions’ everywhere. It’s not something that’s necessarily on the side. It’s something that’s really important to them, and I like that aspect.”

Murray scored 72 goals in her senior season at New Trier (Ill.), where she already owned the school’s single-season and career scoring records as a junior. She was Lacrosse Magazine’s Midwest Player of the Year in 2012 and a US Lacrosse All-American this year.

Academically, Murray compiled a 32 ACT and possessed a 4.96 GPA on New Trier’s 4.0 scale.

Stanford returns all but two players from the team that won the MPSF title and a first-round NCAA tournament game, but Murray will compete for time with a group of 10 incoming freshmen.

“I’m going to go and work and play where they tell me to play,” she said.

Illinois High School Lacrosse: New Trier Boys Lacrosse Wins Seventh Consecutive Illinois State Lacrosse Championship With 9-2 Win Over Loyola Academy On June 4


The New Trier Boys Lacrosse seniors won their fourth Illinois High School Lacrosse Association state championship on Saturday as New Trier beat Loyola Academy 9-2 at Oak Park-River Forest High School.

It was the seventh consecutive state title for New Trier, and its sixth straight over Loyola with a championship at stake.

“We got smarter as the season went on,” New Trier coach Tom Herrala said. “We peaked at the right time. This was the best game we played all season.”

Neither team did much of anything in the opening quarter as the teams battled it out without a single score.

New Trier, which lost a 6-5 contest to Loyola Academy on May 12, got on the board first with 10:41 left in the second quarter on Callahan’s first of two goals.

Loyola’s Luke Cowan answered with the equalizer 57 seconds later but the Ramblers did not score again until Cowan found the back of net with only 3:19 remaining in the contest.

A stingy, physical, man-to-man defense pestered the Ramblers all afternoon.

“We focused on a couple plays from the last time we played and we focused on sliding early,” senior defender Taylor McGinnis said. “We swarmed the ball really fast and had two or three guys on the ball, blindsided them and then dominated the ground ball battle.”

Illinois High School Boys Class-A Lacrosse Playoff Highlights: New Trier Boys Lacrosse (20-3) Defeated Naperville North 16-3 June 1st On Way To State Championship (Video)


Illinois High School Lacrosse Association: New Trier Boys Lacrosse (20-3) Defeated Loyola 7-6 To Win Sixth Consecutive State Championship


New Trier senior Chris Sweitzer took a centering pass from junior Mick Parks and snapped an 8-yard strike past Loyola goalie Kevin Steger with 1 minute, 2 seconds remaining to give the Trevians a 7-6 victory and their sixth consecutive Illinois High School Lacrosse Association state championship Saturday at Oak Park High School.

Lacrosse will become an official IHSA state series sport next season. Depending on sectional seedings, the North Shore teams that have faced each other in 10 title games in the 23-year history of the IHSLA might not meet for a crown again.

The Trevians (20-3), who defeated Loyola 9-8 in April, scored on their first three shot attempts and built a 4-1 first-half lead. The Ramblers (19-7) tied it 4-all after scoring three goals in the final 8:34, including two from senior Harry Clarke.

Illinois High School Boys Lacrosse Championships: New Trier Boys Lacrosse (16-3) Is Seeded #1 And Is The Five-Time Defending State Champion


Five-time defending state champion New Trier (16-3) is the No. 1 seed while Loyola (16-6) is the No. 2 seed. The Trevians beat Loyola in last year’s state title match at Toyola Park in Bridgeview. This year’s final will be held at 4 p.m. June 5 at Oak Park. The semifinals will be held June 3.

The playoffs begin Tuesday with seven first-round games. The other team seeds receiving first-round byes are No. 3 Stevenson (16-2), No. 4 St. Charles East (16-2), No. 5 Lyons (14-4) and No. 6 Glenbrook South (10-6).

Lacrosse is expected to join the IHSA as an official sport next season. But unlike the girls coaches, boys coaches weren’t willing to change the playoff bracket to reflect the IHSA’s sectional seeding quite yet.

In pairings released Sunday by the Illinois High School Lacrosse Association, this year’s boys tournament features a blast from the past with state-wide seeding of all 26 teams in Class A (elite division). The Class B Lacrosse Cup bracket seeded the next 23 teams.
