LM Fan-Tasy High School Championships: Girls Final


Since there is no nationwide high school championship tournament played on the field, Lacrosse Magazine decided to hand over a fantasy bracket to you, the fans.

We narrowed the boys' and girls' fields to eight teams, keeping geographic diversity in mind - the brackets include the champions from five regions (Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, Midwest, South and West) and three at-large teams, based on LM's national rankings.

First-round and semifinal voting ran last week (full results above), and you advanced Moorestown (N.J.) and Loyola Academy (Ill.) to this week's championship.

The team with the highest percentage of votes will be Lacrosse Magazine's 2012 Fan-Tasy High School girls champion. Vote below and please give a reason for your pick in the comment section. Some of these could wind up in the August, high school season wrap issue of LM.

Voting ends at 8 p.m. Eastern time on Wednesday, June 27.

No. 2 Moorestown (N.J.) Quakers (26-0)

No. 8 Loyola Academy (Ill.) Ramblers (22-3)

  • LM National Rank: 2
  • LM Mid-Atlantic Regional Rank: 2

Moorestown survived Chatham (N.J.)'s furious rally in the New Jersey Tournament of Champions, as the Quakers completed their perfect season with a 12-11 victory. Stephanie Toy, who had two goals and three assists against Chatham, finished the season with 34 scores, leading Moorestown to its first ToC title since 2009.

  • LM National Rank: 24
  • LM Midwest Regional Rank: 1

The Ramblers topped New Trier (Ill.) for their fourth straight IHSWLA championship, notching an 11-7 victory against their crosstown rival. Each of Loyola's three losses were against Mid-Atlantic teams — Georgetown Visitation (D.C.), Bishop Ireton (Va.) and Holy Cross (Md.) — and it hasn't lost to a Midwest opponent since 2009.

Thanks for voting in Lacrosse Magazine's Fan-Tasy High School Championships. Check back to LaxMagazine.com on Thursday for the results, and look for a complete high school wrap in the August issue of LM.
