Tim Flynn Reaches 700, Bo Lockwood Sets Assist Record
Mountain Lakes (N.J.) Head Coach Tim Flynn became the fourth coach in history to record at least 700 career wins. Flynn led the Lakers to a 12-4 victory over Pope John XXIII (N.J.) on April 21 to earn the distinction.
Flynn, who has coached Mountain Lakes since 1979, joins an elite list of coaches with at least 700 career wins. Mike Messere (West Genesee) is No. 1 with 846. Joe Cuozzo (Ward Melville/Mount Sinai) finished his career with 747. Bob Hartranft (Farmingdale) earned 708 career victories.
With a 9-1 record this season, Flynn has 702 career wins. He has led the program to at least 18 wins in four of the last five seasons in which the team has played (we’re not counting the 2020 COVID season).
The list of coaches that have the potential to join the 700 club is one. Darien (Conn.) Head Coach Jeff Brameier entered 2022 with 630 wins. The Blue Wave has won a median of 18 games (16.5 is the average, including 2020 and his first two seasons) since Brameier took over the program in 1984. They are 8-1 this season. At that pace, it would take 3.5 seasons for Brameier to reach 700 wins.
With a 9-2 record this season, Moran has 582 career wins. O’Reilly has the Astros at 5-2 this season, putting him at 581 career wins.
Lockwood Takes Top Spot
Hartland (Mich.) senior Bo Lockwood broke the Michigan record for career assists last week in a 25-0 win over Salem (Mich.). Lockwood finished the game with three goals and three assists, which put his career total to 241 assists. That breaks the previous record of 240 set by Tanyr Krummenacher from Saline (Mich.) from 2019.
Lockwood set the state record for most points and assists in a season in 2021 when he put up 236 points and 140 assists in 24 games.
Through nine games this season, Lockwood has 88 points on 55 assists and 33 goals. At that pace, he’s averaging slightly fewer points per game than his record-setting junior season - 9.77 points per game versus 9.83.
If Lockwood scores 64 more points this season, he will become the second player in Michigan history to record at least 500 career points. Only Bryce Clay from Forest Hills Central (Mich.) has reached that mark, and he finished his career with 608 career points.
Dylan Day from Tecumseh (Mich.) is second with 488 career points. Lockwood needs 53 points to surpass Day.
Sam Gross scored six goals for Wando (S.C.) to lead his team to the Class AAAAA state championship on April 30. Wando defeated Nation Ford (S.C.) 21-9 to capture the program's seventh state championship and first since 2018.
Nation Ford came into the game with a 19 game winning streak and undefeated this season, but Wando went on an 8-0 run in the second half to pull away and seal the victory.
Goss entered the championship game with a team-leading 94 points (55 goals, 39 assists). He scored six goals and an assist in the semifinal victory over St. James (S.C.) on April 26. The six goals tie a season-high.
Pope (Ga.) ended the nation’s longest active winning streak with a 6-5 victory over Lambert (Ga.) on April 16. Pope scored five of their six goals in the first half while the defense held Lambert to two goals. Lambert’s 36-game streak is the third-longest in state history. The Longhorns hold the Top 4 spots with a 43-game streak, a 38-game streak, this 36 and a 27-game streak.
Allentown Central Catholic (Pa.) takes over the top spot with a 24-game winning streak. The Vikings are the defending District 11 Champion and PIAA 2A State Champions. They ended 2021 on a 12-game winning streak and are 12-0 this season.
St. John’s College HS (D.C.) has the nation’s second-longest streak at 19 games. The Cadets are ranked No. 2 in the nation with wins over IMG National (Fla.), St. Anthony’s (N.Y.) and Gonzaga (D.C.) in April. St. John’s has outscored its opponents 253-81 this season.
