Dear Midlothian High School Athletic and Lacrosse Family!
On behalf of our coaches and team at Hampden-Sydney College, we cannot thank you enough for bringing your team and organization to Hampden-Sydney for you game this past weekend. It was our pleasure and so refreshing to host such a respectful and organized group. Your student athletes were well coached and disciplined on and off the field. Thanks to Anne Marie and Parents that worked the table.

A sweet Valentine's Day message was received this morning from the principal at Midlothian High School addressed to the members of the MHS Lacrosse Steering Committee. Before you start jumping for joy and cheering euphorically -- remember, we still need to finish our campaign to raise the capital our approval was granted on. Please remember to purchase your tickets this weekend for next weekend's fundraiser.
MHS Lacrosse Steering Committee,
As you are aware, the School Board set out clear criteria for a school to meet in demonstrating readiness for startup of a lacrosse program. Part of this framework included having a financial plan in place that clearly demonstrated the raising of funds and donations for the start of a team, the operation of a team, and the sustainability of a team over a three year period without negatively impacting the finances and operation of the existing teams in the athletic program at the school. In addition, the stipulation was made that it is required that a school have both a girl’s lacrosse team and a separate boy’s lacrosse team.
The panel reviewed the materials that all groups submitted as well as the content of the presentations. Based upon that information the panel made a recommendation to the Superintendent and the School Board (which they have accepted) and it has been determined that Midlothian High School has established the ability to meet the readiness criteria intended by the School Board. As such Midlothian High School may proceed with notification to the VHSL that our school will have both a boys’ lacrosse team and a girls’ lacrosse team.
Mr. Cooper will begin the process for successfully starting Lacrosse at Midlothian High School, including, but not limited to, hiring a boys and girls coach, scheduling games, and organizing the structure of the program.
I will notify our community of this decision through my weekly messages and by posting an announcement on our school website and over the PA at school.
Thank you for your work in bringing this opportunity forward for the students at Midlothian High School and your work in securing the resources for this program to begin in 2014-15. I’d also like to thank you in advance for your ongoing support as we sustain the success of our Lacrosse programs at Midlothian High School.
The Subway Commonwealth Games of Virginia-High School Lacrosse Championship tournament was held June 1st and 2nd at the River City Sportsplex. This was Midlothian Girls Lacrosse Team’s third opportunity to play for state club title in three years, and its third victory. With a 6-11 final score to cinch the Triple Crown victory, Midlothian Girls finished the season with 14 wins-2 losses, while second place in the state Atlee finished up 12-2. Neither team lost to any other public school/VHSL team in the region during the course of the season.
Sunday’s big face off came with the girls teams from Atlee and Midlothian ready to do battle for the state championship title on Field 1, while the Atlee boys faced off with the Midlothian boys over on field 3 for their state title game. At the conclusion of the day, both the Midlo Boys and the Midlo Girls lacrosse teams emerged victorious. Congratulations and way to go Midlothian Lacrosse Boys and Girls State Champions!
The Midlothian Girls came out strong, scoring 3 goals within 3 minutes and then going up by 5 goals before Atlee finally got on the board with 10 minutes gone in the half. The two teams paused at the half with Midlothian leading by 6-3. With 90 seconds gone in the second half, Midlothian scored again to extend their lead to 4. Both teams traded goals during the rest of the half. Midlothian scored the final goal with 20 seconds left in the game to prevail 11-6.
The season record between these two teams finished the 2013 season at 2-2. Atlee won the first game at their home field by 1 goal early in the season. Midlothian then answered with a 10-6 win late in April. The two teams played again for the GRLL championship sponsored by the USLacrosse Richmond Chapter. Atlee totally dominated play that day, winning 11-6, and taking home the 2013 GRLL winner’s trophy and the top seed going into the state championship games. Both of these teams represent the powerhouses of Central Virginia.
In the quarterfinals of the state championship games, Midlothian was victorious 21-8 over South County (Roanoke) in their matchup while Atlee defeated Grafton 16-2 in the Saturday morning game. In the afternoon semifinal games, Atlee continued their strong play, beating a solid Tabb team by a score of 16-6. In the other side of the bracket, Midlothian was challenged by a very talented Stafford team, but managed to play two steady halves on the way to a 20-9 victory.
In the third place game on Sunday, Stafford and Tabb played an intensely fought game with Tabb pulling out a 10-9 win with a goal late in the second half.
