Three of the biggest titles on offer this season have been claimed by Delco teams, and the stats tell the tale of how impressive a campaign it’s been. The list of final statistical leaders isn’t just a who’s who of national elite recruits, but a chronicle of some amazing lacrosse being played within the county.
The change atop the goalscoring list occurred in the PIAA final, courtesy of Jack Norton, who tops the charts with 68 goals, edging Forry Smith by one tally. Norton and teammate Drew Ryan (62 goals) are among a quintet of 60-goal scorers.
The assist king this season is Haverford School’s Grant Ament, and even a torrid postseason couldn’t inch Springfield’s fabulous freshman Kyle Long closer than a 22-assist margin, his 51 finishing as runner-up to Ament’s stunning total of 73.
All those assists gave Ament the points title with 110 in 26 matches. Also surmounting the century-mark was Norton with his 102 points, while Lucas Spence of District One champ Springfield tallied a monumental 94 points.
When all was said and done, the saves leader is James Spence, who stopped 242 shots for the Cougars this season.
