Sisters All-Conference Celebration and Tourney

June 18-19th, Sisters


Thanks to hard work by conference coaches, parents, and players, and, of course, Tourney lead organizer coach Jeff Melville of Summit, the 2016 Sisters All-Conference Celebration and Tourney was another success. 

Near record attendance with players from all eight conferences met to combine into for four full teams and two days of games at Sisters High School Stadium.  High Desert, North Valley, SouthWest, and Pacific conference teams were filled out with spare players from Metro, Three Rivers, Columbia, and Northwest conferences.  An atmosphere stoked by good attitude and clean play made for a wonderful time for all involved: parents, players, and coaches alike.

The All-Conference Celebration in Sisters is one week away and the coaches are beginning to form up the teams.  The games will be played at Sisters HS stadium.  There will be at least four teams participating in the tournament, but if tournout is as good as expected new teams may be created at the tourney.

#3 Canby earned a spot against #5 seed South Eugene in the Cascase Cup Final on Saturday.  On the Championship Bracket side, #1 Beaverton will go up against #3 Jesuit.  This will be the third game between the Metro conference rivals , and since each game has been decided by one goal, this game is sure to be a thriller.  For a recap of the Lakeridge vs Beaverton semi final, check out the article in the Oregoninan.  The Championship Bracket and Cascade Cup Bracket have both been updated on the OHSLA playoff page as well as links to photos from the the semi-finals in Beaverton.

Championship Saturday, on June 4th, features a full day of lacrosse including the Cascade Cup Final at 2pm, first annual Oregon AllStar game at 4:30pm, and State Championship Final at 7pm. Details about Championship Day, including parking tips and detailed schedule info, can be found at Championship Page on the Beaverton Lacrosse website.

All Star Game Nominees Released

May 30th

The All Star Game Nominees are on the 2016 All Star Nominee Page. The page consists of of nominees and alternate players to participate in the All Star Game on Championship Saturday at 4:30pm.  As noted earlier this is a single game, there will still be a separate All Star Tourney in Sisters the weekend of June 18th & 19th. 

Due to this being first AllStar Game of this kind, there has been some confusion on the selection process.  This has resulted in some rearrangement of the initial nominee list released on Monday to conform to the guideline that there be three nominees per conference for three positions (Attack, Middie, & Defense).  The total number of candidate players has not changed and neither has the criteria for selection of players in the game: After the nominees, the teams will be filled out at the discretion of the AllStar coaches based on the availability of players

IMPORTANT NOTE: Because some nominees will be playing in one of the finals on Saturday or some players may not be able to participate for personal reasons, there is uncertainty for the AllStar coaches as to who can actually play.  For this reason an RSVP system has been created (similar to the one for the All Star Tourney), that will allow the coaches to know who can really make the game.  So it is important all the nominated players, whether nominees or alternates, RSVP Yes or No as soon as possible using the RSVP button on teh 2016 All Star Nominee Page. This the All Star Game coaches will have a pool of confirmed players from which they can put together their teams using alternates if necessary.  If players wish to participate in the All Star Tourney this is a separate RSVP, accessed from the All-Conference page (any All-Conference player is eligible to play in the AllStar Tourney in Sisters).

Beaverton High School will host Championship Saturday and there will be three high school level games: Cascade Cup Final at 2pm, first annual OHSLA All Star game at 4:30pm, and the OHSLA Championship at 7pm.  For more information on Championship Day, including parking directions and detailed schedule, checkout the Championship Page on the Beaverton Lacrosse website.

Cascade Cup and Championship Bracket Final Four Set

May 27th

With the Quarter Finals on both brackets completed we are down to the final eight teams.  Thanks to a few upsets, the Cascade Cup bracket has some lower seeds still playing: #5 South Eugene will host #8 Thurston and #2 Clackamas will host #3 Canby.  The Championship Bracket is more standard with the top four seeds vying for the Final: #4 Lakeridge vs #1 Beaverton and #3 Jesuit vs #2 Summit.  Both the Championship games will be at Beaverton on Wednesday, whereas the Cascade Cup games will be played at the host schools.  The Championship Bracket and Cascade Cup Bracket have both been updated on the OHSLA playoff page.

Both brackets finish next week on June 4th, Championship Day, a full day of lacrosse including the Cascade Cup Final, first annual Oregon AllStar game, and State Championship Final. Details about Championship Day, including parking tips and detailed schedule info, can be found at Championship Page on the Beaverton Lacrosse website.

All-Conference Teams Published

May 27th

With our content manager a little overwhelmed at his real job, the All-Conference teams were posted but not announced on this page.  Many apologies.  The teams are posted on the Honors page. The Invitees for the AllStar Game will be posted tomorrow. 

Important note about AllStar Game: Since some invitees may not be able to participate in the AllStar game (because they are playing in the Championship or can't travel), the AllStar coaches will need to hear from players on their status.  For this reason players invited to participate in the AllStar game will be asked to RSVP so that coaches know whether they need to call up more alternates.  When the AllStar team is posted, players are asked to please RSVP ASAP.

First Annual OHSLA All-Star Game

June 4th, Beaverton Stadium

The OHSLA is excited to announce the first ever All-Star game on Championship Saturday, featuring the best available players from all conferences in the state.  Unlike the All-Star Tourney weekend, this is not a league vs league game.  Players will be divided up to make even teams in order to have an evenly matched and fun game.  Since the Game will be played on Championship day (June 4th), players involved in State Championship game or Cascade final will not eligible and, if selected for a team, be replaced by alternates for the game. 

Selection Process: 3 players (1 att, 1 Mid, 1 Def) from each conference statewide will be selected for the game.  Each of the eight conferences state wide will submit the 3 players with their All-Conference team choices on May 24th.  Rosters will then be filled out by the team coaches (former OHSLA HS coaches) using OHSLA all league selections.  Each team will have 22-24 players.  Recommendations will be used from current OHSLA coaches after all conference selection process is finished.  All players will receive an all star game apparel package including a Nike reversible, Nike fly shorts and a performance shirt (provided by sponsors Nike and BSN sports) as commemorative keepsakes. 

The OHSLA is thrilled to provide this great experience for the many talented players statewide and hope it is a great addition to Championship Saturday.

2016 Oregon Lax Civil War

Saturday April 23rd, 5pm
West Linn HS Stadium

It's that time of the year again and this year Oregon's two MCLA D-I teams are playing for the regular season championship of the Pacific Northwest Collegiate Lacrosse League (PNCLL) and a spot in the MCLA playoffs for the national championship. 

The Beavers are undefeated in the PNCLL (6-0) and are looking to closeout the season in first place with a victory over the Ducks.  The Ducks have a 5-1 PNCLL record, but come to the game ranked higher nationally than the Beavers thanks to a road victory over MCLA powerhouse Colorado State.  The Ducks are 9th in Polls (LaxPower ranking 16th) and the Beavers are 15th (20th on LaxPower).  As in recent years both teams are stocked with former OHSLA players, in fact all but 4 of OSU's 45 players played in the OHSLA while over 40% of the U of O players (16/39) are Oregon bred. 

Admission will be $5 for Adults and $3 for students and concessions will feature barbequed burgers and dogs.  Parking will be the same as for the Fritz Hayes classic (see below).
