The Top Gun Fighting Clams finished their fall tour with a strong 4 win, 2 loss and 2 tie performance at the Ultimate Performance Lacrosse Tournament in Annapolis, MD. The Clams wins included a 9-3 opening day win vs. the nationally ranked club program the NY Roadhawks, and a strong 6-4 showing vs. perenially strong DC area HS program Gonzaga HS. The event was as competitive an event as we've attended all fall, without question.

Of the two losses, one was an outstanding 5-6 loss to the MD Crabs, a club program who last year was considered the second best the country according to an INSIDE LACROSSE poll. Afterward, two college coaches who'd watched said it was one of the most intense and competitive games they'd seen all fall. The other loss, a 0-6 drubbing at the hands of the Claremont School (British Columbia), proved valuable to all the Clams present in that it showed - quite simply - how good some players out there are, and they are ones the Clams will be ultimately competing with for college roster spots. After having two relatively lopsided wins on the first day, this game served as a reminder that there is still work to do. The silver lining is this game will be that I know it will push all of our players to push harder in the months to come. 

With the 4-2-2 performance at UP LAX, the record of our entire Clam program moves to a solid 32-11-6. More importantly, the Clams fall program has already seen six of our juniors and counting receive D1 offers (a couple of whom have received more than one, and one of whom has accepted); several more preparing to take unofficial visits where offers appear to be waiting. This of course is just the start. But to say that each offer is encouraging and exciting in its own right would be an understatement.
