So 5 Maine players made the final Top 100 New England high school lax players list from New England Lacrosse Journal including Scarborough's Reece Lagerquist at No. 32. Not sure exactly how they put this together but any list like this is going to be imperfect. And surprised they missed Falmouth's Brendan Hickey. Biggest omission I can see from what little I know. But congrats to the kids listed. Good to see Maine lax growing and getting recognition. ... eId1372333
