Welcome to BLaxFive.NET

2016 Season

Welcome to the NEW BLaxFive.NET web site. With the addition of the GLaxFive.NET site for the girls, we have decided to use SportsFive.NET as the “Hub” for the various sports we may cover now, perhaps more in the future.

 Why the changes? There are a number of reasons. A top issue relates to the change in the way users look at the web site. In the last few years there had been a steady increase in the use of mobile phones and tablets and a decrease in the use of desktop computers. So we have restructured the pages to load faster and look better on the newer, smaller devices.

 We have also studied the way in which the site is used and have kept as much of the navigation to popular pages as we could. We have kept as much of the historical data as we could move, including game data, stories and player pages.

2017 Section Five All-Americans Announced


The head Coaches of Section Five meet last week to listen to the presentations of thirty players who had been nominated for All-American and All-Academic awards. The awards, sponsored by US Lacrosse, identify some of the best players from each area around the country. Each of the thirty-six coaches in the section has a vote on each of the awards.

US LacrosseThe All-American award is given to great lacrosse players from the area. US Lacrosse allows one award for each six teams in the area, so with thirty-six teams in Section Five, there were six awards available this year. Twenty-two players were nominated, but after the first team league lists were determined, twenty players were considered. Section Five coaches require that players who are in leagues must make first team league honors in order to be considered.

After another redefinition of the All-Academic award, US Lacrosse, an emphasis has been placed on the academic qualification of nominees. Where, in the past, nominees for this award were first considered for their skill on this field, this year, although skill was considered important, nominees did not need to be "All-American" quality players. Players needed to be "starters or significant contributors" and had to have played in a majority of their team's games. Academically, nominees needed to have an average GPA of 3.7 (93%). There are also six awards available in Section Five.

In 2012, US Lacrosse added an award named for the long-time Johns Hopkins lacrosse coach and Athletic Director, Bob Scott. The annual award is given to a senior of outstanding character, good academic standing and one who demonstrates good sportsmanship and safe play. The winner from Section Five, this year, is Penfield senior Peter Schwab.

The coaches also made their picks for Coach of the year. It was, from Wayne Central, Head Coach Eric Carlsen.
