Welcome to the Louisiana High School Lacrosse League

The Louisiana High School Lacrosse League (LHSLL) was formed in 2008 to provide a framework and organizational structure for the growth of high school lacrosse in the State of Louisiana.  The focus of this website will be to provide you with up-to-date information from US Lacrosse, LHSLL news and events, as well as team scores and league standings. Each LHSLL team is dedicated to the goal of teaching the sport and providing a fun experience for all involved.  Our mission is to provide an outlet for kids that has not been swept up in the pressure-filled, win-at-all-cost mania that is all too present in today's youth sports.  With common rules, regulations, philosophies and a communication structure in place we can all play and grow together.  Though this, we hope to provide a format for a safe and meaningful lacrosse experience for all players and promote the growth of lacrosse in Louisiana while maintaining the highest possible levels of sportsmanship.

The LHSLL Continues to Grow the Game!

The fastest growing team sport in America continues to spread across the Southeast. At their annual meeting on Saturday, May 12th, the Louisiana High School Lacrosse League voted to add two more programs. St. Paul's Episcopal School out of Mobile, Alabama will join the LHSLL as a D-2 team beginning in 2019. St. Stanislaus out of Bay St. Louis will join Ocean Spring and Pascagoula/Gauthier from the State of Mississippi as the newest D-1 program, and will play in the South District of the LHSLL. There's also talk of a new team in Benton, Louisiana coming onboard in the not-to-distant future and joining the North District.

Louisiana High School Lacrosse - The First Decade

Championship Weekend Results 2009-2018

 

Let’s take a look at the first ten years of the Louisiana High School Lacrosse League (LHSLL). The League was formed in the fall of 2008 when teams from South Louisiana, which had been playing in the Gulf Coast Lacrosse League, met in Shreveport with teams from North Louisiana, which had been playing in the Texas High School Lacrosse League to set the ground work for forming the LHSLL. The original 13 teams were divided into East and West D-1 Districts, with Jesuit, Ocean Springs, Brother Martin, Catholic, Mandeville and Archbishop Rummel forming the East; and Loyola, Byrd, Caddo Magnet, Captain Shreve, St. Thomas More and Lafayette forming the West. St. Paul’s was the lone D-2 team at the time.

Since the League was established we’ve had a few programs start and fail, but quite a few more have found success. Today, the LHSLL consists of 21 Division-1 programs in four Districts. 2018 marked the League’s tenth season to crown a State Champion. Remarkably, the Jesuit Blue Jays have been represented in the LHSLL Final-4 in each of its first ten years, winning a record five State Championships. St. Thomas More is second, with three State Titles, followed by St. Paul’s and Loyola with one apiece.

As the popularity of the sport continues to rise, rest assured that the League’s numbers will continue to grow as well. The LHSLL has welcomed teams from Alabama, Mississippi and Texas who were looking for the structure that the League offers. Since Mississippi does not have a League of their own, you should expect more teams from the Magnolia Sate to join the LHSLL. In addition to new programs from outside of Louisiana, you’re seeing growth in parts of the state that already have teams.  However, there are pockets within the state that have yet to discover the sport. Communities in and around Lake Charles, Alexandria, Ruston and Monroe are ripe for expansion.

St. Thomas More Upends St. Paul's for the 2018 State Title

2018 State Champions St. Thomas More

New Orleans Advocate
By David Folse

LAFAYETTE — In front of a boisterous home crowd at Cougar Stadium, the St. Thomas More lacrosse team defeated defending state champion St. Paul’s 20-10 to capture the 2018 Louisiana High School Lacrosse League state championship Sunday afternoon.

The Cougars (15-4) captured their first state championship since 2011 and also handed St. Paul’s (14-1) it's first loss this season and avenged a 10-6 loss to the Wolves on March 3. It is the fourth state title for St. Thomas More, which also captured titles in 2008 and 2010.

STM dominated from the opening faceoff and took a 2-0 lead less than two minutes in on goals by Mason Duhon. Down 4-1 with three minutes to go in the first quarter, the Wolves finally scored on a goal by junior Christopher Flood. “We let it get out of hand too quickly,” Flood said. “We couldn’t clear the ball, we couldn’t win face-offs and we can’t even possess the ball. You have to posses the ball to score the ball. When we did get the ball, we started rushing and making stupid plays. “STM is a physical team, and we usually roll with it. We are normally a fundamentally sound ballclub. We just weren’t that today.”

Goals by Logan Stinson and Michael Furka in the final minute of the first quarter gave the Cougars a 6-1 advantage. “It’s wasn’t what we expected,” St. Thomas More coach Byrnes Tatford said of his team start. “It seems like we have started slow in every game this season. We challenged our team to come out hot because St. Paul’s is going to be a tough out. To this team’s credit, they came out and took control of the game in the first quarter.” Consecutive goals by Luke Adams, Cade Hernandez and Duhon gave the Cougars a 9-1 lead with 4:29 to go in the first half. Junior Ian Varney and senior Hanson Stuckey answered for St. Paul’s with back-to-back goals to cut the STM lead to 9-3 before Duhon’s fourth goal gave the Cougars a 10-3 halftime lead.

Stinson, Adams and Jack Rozas opened the second half with a three-goal barrage to make it 13-3. “The biggest goal coming into this game was to start out hot early,” Adams said. “I felt like we won the game in the first quarter. When we went up 4-1, I felt like we were in complete control of the game.” The Wolves answered with three consecutive goals by Jarrett Meibaum and Ian Varney to cut the lead to 13-6, but that was the closest St. Paul’s got as Adams and Cade Hernandez finished the third quarter with back-to-back goals for the Cougars. St. Thomas More outscored the Wolves 7-4 in the fourth quarter.
