The 2012 season is slightly more than a month away in some states. In preparation to our 2012 season previews, ESPNHS is looking back at the 2011 statistical leaders.

In addition to the region previews, ESPNHS will release several packages, including a national leaders list that will be updated throughout the season and will highlight the current longest winning streaks in the nation.

Over the next few weeks, ESPNHS will release a listing of returning statistical leaders in goals, assists and points. Beginning Feb. 7, ESPNHS will release a new high school lacrosse region preview each week, culminating with the release of our State Rankings and POWERADE FAB 50 team rankings.

Region previews include Southeast, Midwest, West, East along with individual previews of Maryland, New York and Pennsylvania.
