Saltwater 2026 left little room for error in its division championship appearance against Shore Kaos, as it capped off an impressive four-game run with a 11-1 win to seal the deal.
Among an array of interesting takeaways from Virginia Beach’s recent lacrosse festivities, Team Maryland 2027 and 757 Select Lacrosse 28/29’s high-powered offenses would likely round out the top of a comprehensive list.

On the other hand, 757 Select Lacrosse 28/29 kicked off its tournament run by finding the net 16 times in its first game action of the weekend before taking the field the following day and scoring 13 times in its semifinal matchup against the PT Tigers.
As for the youth girls divisions, Crush Elite 2024, the champion of the 2024/2025 division, was as dominant as any team in the tournament.
