  • @piercewalker:disqus @twitter-861922759:disqus – Sorry for the confusion. I’ve removed the comments from the main polls page and will have to look into it another night.

  • Samhills

    I wish those who are voting in DII realized that American Fork beat Herriman twice at the Best of the West Tournament.

    • Not sure that a preseason tournament means anything as far as how good a team is. Teams have different ideas about what they are trying to accomplish in those games. AF will have time to prove themselves as the year unfolds. They haven’t even played a game yet.

    • Pierce Walker

      I do see what you’re saying Samhills. I believe that American Fork held their own against a DI team, Olympus; however, the tournament is not a reflection of one’s teams greatest ability. Having coached in those tournaments many times I can tell you that all coaches take the tournament as a “everyone plays” mentality. It is not “do whatever it takes to win.” Correction to Peter Stevenson, they have played a game, they lost to Olympus 3-11. I believe these standings are accurate for American Fork. I do believe they will be a threat in the playoffs with Brooke Jones and Leah Durant at their head. Good luck this season.

      • The OLY vs AF game isn’t on utahlax or Laxpower. Are you sure it was an official game? If it was a scrimmage then you can’t count that as what a team really is.

        • Pierce Walker

          ULA website has it.

          • Nope. Not for this season. It isn’t on the OLY or AF websites. Not on ULA or Laxpower. I am pretty sure that this didn’t happen.

          • Pierce Walker
          • That is for the girls.

          • Pierce Walker

            this whole thread is about girls lacrosse lol

          • Pierce Walker

            Samhills was referring to the girls coaches poll week 2. you are lost here i bet.

          • Pierce Walker

            and Samhills is Andrew Davies btw. The Olympus coach. He can verify the game played.

          • You can view either the boys or the girls polls above and the same thread is below. So not really that crazy that I would think it was about the boys as well.

          • Pierce Walker

            You solely thought it was the boy. Not the same thread. Different genders. Admitting fault is not a weakness. Arrogance is.

          • Wow. This went off the rails quite quickly. I love the internet. Sorry for my arrogance.

          • It seems we have been talking about different things here. I apologize.

  • Pierce Walker

    I believe that Park City is the team to beat this year. Solid front line with great midfield support. Very impressed with their coaching staff and dedication. It is interesting that 5 out of the 8 top teams are from the south conference. There needs to be another shake up in the conference alignments.
