Who are going to be our roving reporters at Nationals

New postby wsalzman on Wed May 03, 2017 5:10 pm

I'm not going as my daughter's team (JMU) didn't make it, but I'm interested in timely game updates and inside information from those that do go. Who's planning to be there to let everyone else that can't go what's happening?

There is usually a live chat feed done by Paul Ohanian on laxmagazine.com that at least gets you most score updates but honestly the best way to know whats going on with specific games is to follow the team twitter feeds. They are all public feeds so you don't even need a twitter account.

Congratulations to all of the teams competing in the 2017 National Tournament, it looks like there were some great match ups. Applause to fellow MAWLL program Delaware on an incredible run and the National D1 Championship.

My overall thoughts on the tournament

Awesome venue - really nice fields and was easy to get into and out of since it was close to the airport and to downtown SLC
Generally great weather - got a little chilly on Saturday and the wind on Friday was a bit extreme but I'd take that over rain and mudpits any day!!
Excellent Lacrosse - lots of really great games played throughout the tournament. winners bracket, consolation games, left side right side, all around a lot of very high level lacrosse going on.
Officiating needs consistency - this is something that will always come into play but for a national tournament there shouldn't be questions about stick legality coming into play in the semi-final games!!! not saying it had any outcome but a stick shouldn't make it to day 3 and then suddenly its shooting strings are noticed to be illegal. I also am not sure how much I like the switching of people within a crew throughout the weekend. I think it would help with consistency and let the refs work better together if they stayed together throughout the week. This would also allow teams to know which refs call tight games and which allow them to play a little more loose.

Overall I thought it was an awesome venue and would love to see SLC stay in a rotation if one is ever developed for sites.

I agree - amazing scenic venue, some really crazy weather that made things interesting, and a very high level of play. Congratulations to all the teams that participated!

Officiating is always a wild card. The best officials are the ones you don't notice. I thought the officiating was very good - much better than what we see in our league. However, there are games I watched where one of the three officials would make over 50% of the calls. I guess that's ok if they are making the right calls, but when a ref makes a call from across the field when another ref is next to the play, I scratch my head.

Reviewing the seeding, the committee did a very good job overall. Hindsight is always 20/20, but there was only one obvious incorrect seed with UNC at #14 (poor UCLA would agree). An argument can be made that VT should have been #14, and UNC should have been #10 - especially since UNC beat VT soundly in the regular season. To avoid #7 Delaware playing #10 UNC in the first round for the third time, Delaware should have been #6 (vs #11 Michigan) and BC #7 (vs #10 UNC). #3 UCLA would have had #14 VT and been a more solid favorite. I understand nothing is perfect, and it's easy to say this after the fact.

Going forward, it's my hope there are more inter-sectional games in the future between MAWLL teams and other leagues. It may require some different thinking where teams from the Midwest or West travel to the East Coast to play every other year. The East Coast teams just don't have the budgets to go out West every year. I'm sure clubs like UVA, VT, Towson, JMU, and Maryland that have hosted tournaments would love to include teams like Michigan, UCLA, Colorado State, BC, Georgia, etc in their respective events. I think it would benefit all teams once National seeding time comes around.

So, Kudos to US Lacrosse for hosting a first class event that I hope never changes. The future of the WCLA is bright. More talented girls are choosing club ball to enjoy a well-rounded college experience. Not only is the quality of play terrific, the parity among the top 12-14 is incredibly exciting. Any team can beat any team on any given day.

Looking forward to learning where the 2018 Championship will be. Anyone hear anything?
