Myers Park wins state lacrosse championship

Senior attackman Craig Passenant tossed in five goals to lead Charlotte Myers Park to a 15-11 triumph over Apex to earn the initial North Carolina High School Athletic Association state men's lacrosse championship at WakeMed Soccer Park on Saturday afternoon.

Passenant was named Most Valuable Player of the championship and finished the season with 38 goals. Myers Park won its sixth straight game and finished with a 19-1 overall record.

Myers Park was in control most of the way, taking a 3-1 lead late in the first half and stretching to 9-4 at halftime. The Mustangs held a 12-5 lead at one point in the second half.

Ross Whitehead tallied four times for Apex, which finished the season 15-4 overall and had a 10-game winning streak snapped.
In this first year of sanctioned championship competition, schools in all classifications competed for one title in an open tournament.

Congrats to Myers Park...but I am confused...why is there NO mention on this blog about the NC State Independent School Men's Lax Championship won today by Charlotte County Day (over Providence Day)? Another question that this paper should do some research and questioning about = why does Mecklenburg County have an ordinance outlawing Independent Schools from competing against CMS schools? Or is this just CMS policy? I would LOVE to see Myers Park play CCDS...kind of like a "plus 1" game in the BCS!
