Good question 42laxdad. The Source is US Lacrosse which publishes the list on its website and can be found also in LAX power. However this year US Lacrosse states as you can see all the areas will be released together on July 1.

In California alone there are 6 regions: Cal- LA, Cal- San Diego, Cal-Orange County, Cal- Ventura county,
Cal - San Francisco ( Our area) and Cal- Sacramento Valley. all of which will publish their lists.

Any word from the Sacramento area. Hats off to "noflow"for his finding the full list prior to July 1.


This is the quote from the US Lacrosse website in reference to the posting of their list of All Americans.
US LACROSSE
"2015 High School Awards
This year, US Lacrosse will release the complete list of All-Americans in one announcement on July 1. Please check back.

The US Lacrosse All-American Awards/Recognition process is maintained by the US Lacrosse Men’s Game Coaches Subcommittee and administered locally by the High School Area Chairmen. The subcommittee, through the Area Chairmen, oversees the selection of seven (7) awards categories. Each Area is required to participate in each of these seven categories:
•All-American
•All-Academic
•Coach of the Year
•Assistant Coach of the Year
•Man of the Year (Area and National)
•Bob Scott Award

2015 Awards & Information
•Group 1 & Group 2 Awards - coming July 1
•Area Chairmen Listing
•Area Chairmen Handbook

Archive of All-America Teams
•2014 US Lacrosse Boys' All-Americans and All-Academic: Group 1 | Group 2
•2013 US Lacrosse Boys' All-Americans and All-Academic: Group 1 | Group 2 | Group 3"....etc


Still haven't see the list for All League for the EBAL. Anyone have a scoop on that before it appears in the CCC Times or on the EBAL Website?

Congrat's to the local AA's. Having watched many EBAL and WCAL games I am genuinely surprised that Chase Bunce, LSM/CD with Bellarmine, is not on this list. He was arguably the best LSM athlete I saw and among the best at Close D. Additionally, there were several boys from Delasalle that should have made this list. Very curious.

I believe it is a matter of your coach submitting your name and the player having the appropriate stats for the year, and maybe some voting or review/approval process by coaches or some governing body, but I could be wrong. There is a AA requirements/process doc somewhere in laxpower or USL that I read once.

Most of these discussions consider only the CIF Bay Area teams. Many solid high school players play for Non-CIF teams because their high schools don't offer lacrosse...Joe Reid comes to mind.

Thanks for posting this. Gotta give some love to the non-cif (club) players and teams some love. They earned it also.

But I have a dumb question, why don't schools like Oakland Tech, Folsom, Skyline (Oakland), Elk Grove (Sacto), Chico, etc, etc. move to CIF? I know they have some talent in those areas and the population size and sports at those cities and schools are pretty big. It would be great to see more Sac area schools go CIF. Lots of great athletes there. Folsom vs E Hills vs Granite Bay would be an awesome rivalry.

The CC times posted their al All East Bay Teams for both the Boys and Girls lacrosse for 2015 indeed there was a full page with pictures devoted to the subject that indicates Lacrosse is at last getting a liitle more love. Also each of the players selected on the first team had a nice little bio. Two teams slected no Honorable mention. The Most Valuable went to Austin French of SRV. Last year that award went to Robbie Stern of Acalanes. There was a nice article on Austin with a picture authored by Matt Schwab of the Times. check it out. Very cool =D>
FIRST TEAM
Austin French SRV Attack
Adrian Jefferies, Acalanes Attack
Devin Spencer, Monte Vista Attack
Quinn Burnett, Piedmont Attack
Colin Rutan, Las Lomas, Attack
Poochie Stemmler, Monte Vista, Attack
Benn Spencer, Monte Vista,, Middie

The Second Team players selected by the CC times as all East bay were;
Attack, Brodie West, Amador, Eric Carrolan, Amador, Chris Ryan Monte Vista
Midfielders, Keegan Lancaster SRV,Sean Maloney Foothill, Ryan Racer, Amador, Brook Rideau, DLS,
Defense, Nick Stally, MV, Tyler Maddalon, MV
FO, Jordan Weil MV,
Goalie John Perlite DLS

Based on these second team selections many of whom are underclassmen the teams to beat in 2016 at least in the EBAL may well be Amador and MV. However Monte Vista will have to do so with out its head Coach Ted Spencer who announced at the Mustang's end of year banquet he would not be returning. Hmm?

Still no word on the EBAL selection for All league. Late as usual. it may be football season before someone in the EBAL office chooses to send their list to the papers or post it on the their web site. The EBAL website still show the team for 2014. You would think that a little publicity for the sport and the league would be helpful. A double Hmm? [-X

The EBAL all league players appeared last Friday in the CCC Times but still haven't been posted on the league website. So for those that may have missed it here goes.

Austin French SRV SR

FIRST TEAM:
ATTACK; Devin Spencer MV Jr, Liam Mullin SRV Jr, Poochie Stemmler MV Jr

MIDDIE: Ben Spencer MV SR, Carter Nichols SRV Sr, Keegan Landcaster SRV SR

DEFENSE: Joey Carrington SRV, Soph, Tyler Maddalon MV SR, Pat Ward SRV Sr

LSM: Mitch Olinger DLS Sr, FO: Jordan Weil MV Sr, GOALIE Daniel Aguilar SRV Sr

MIDDIE; Ryan Racer AV Jr, Brooke Rideau DLS Jr,

DEFENSE: Nick Staley MV Sr, Sean Tomonari AV Jr, Brooks Blaine AV Sr

LSM Alex Brown SRV Jr, Max Gershman AV Sr, FO Conor Maloney DLS Jr, GOALIE: John Perlite DLS Sr


HONORABLE MENTION;

Brodie West AV Jr, Jackson Thuma DLS Jr, Trevor Moreau Granada Soph, Brandon Brocklesby Gran Jr, Ben Allen, DLS Sr, Eric Morgan DLS Sr,

The league continues to be late getting in the selections and often makes mistakes. They should do better. The CCC Times says this is what they were given. Congrats to these fine players in the
EBAL which placed all four teams in the final four, of the NCS Div 1, San Ramon Valley, Monte Vista, Amador Valley and De la Salle.

Happy to see that Matt Schwab of the CCC Times was a man of his word and the EBAL All League teams for both boys and girls were run again this morning in the Times and the correction as to Daniel Aguilar first team goalie was changed as listed from Amador Valley a junior to SRV a senior. The girl's team was also republished. Don't know if there were any changes there.
