High School players must register for the Performance Course Conditioning Program that will be held in January prior to spring tryouts. All players trying out for spring lacrosse (with the exception of winter sport athletes) will participate. All High School Performance Course participants will receive an HP Lacrosse Sweatsuit that will be distributed during the holidays and worn during the course. All participants during registration will need to download, complete and mail completed waivers to Beth Lee, 4333 Stanhope, 75205 by December 15.

2013 DI Captains:
Matthew Meaders, Hilton Kennington and Bryce Green
This is not a Cinderella Story. This is not even an underdog story.
No, this is story about a group of players who came together as a team when everybody had them written off and said their window had closed. This is a story about Highland Park (Texas), the team that won its sixth state championship with gritty defense and pure heart.
5. Highland Park (Texas), 12-7
All the pieces of the puzzle came together for Highland Park, which won Texas High School Lacrosse League's boys Division I state championship with a 5-4 win over St. Mark's in the title game Sunday. The Fighting Scots lost seven games during the regular season, which included defeats to Episcopal Dallas, The Woodlands, Dallas Jesuit and St. Mark's. Guess what? The Fighting Scots beat each one of them on their way to the state title to cap off an incredible season.

The Scots surprised everyone in the Lone Star state at the end of the year, first upsetting Dallas Jesuit (Dallas) and then St. Mark’s (Dallas) behind Wenz’s clutch play. First against Jesuit in the state semifinal on May 5, the versatile midfielder scored three goals. Then in the state championship on May 6 he tallied four points on two goals and two assists. It was a memorable week for the senior captain who did his part leading his squad to the state title.
DIvision 1: Highland Park 5, St. Mark's 4
Division 2: Highland Park II 8, Klein 7
“After losing to St. Mark’s during the regular season, Highland Park got some revenge with a 5-4 victory over the Lions in the Texas High School Lacrosse League’s boys Division I state championship match Sunday.
Highland Park took charge quickly, finding the net twice in the first 90 seconds. Midfielder Daniel Wenz scored first off an assist by Wills Manley — the first in a series of point-producing plays by the senior duo. Then, with the help of Robert Mencke, Nico Cancemi rebounded a blocked shot and scored a goal that gave Highland Park a 2-0 lead.” — Dallas Morning News
Highland Park’s DI and DII teams were not considered favorites to win the State Championship titles. Throughout the year in Division II it seemed likely that until the last week of the regular season when HPII defeated a number of top teams in the state, that the title would be claimed by Flower Mound or Hillcrest, with Klein, Keller, Cy-Fair, Highland Park DII and the others fighting for an outside chance to claim the title. In Division I, Highland Park was all but written off by mid-season, as they posted a meager 3-5 record in North District play and squeaked into the playoffs with some late-season wins during the district playoffs. Neither team was supposed to make it this far. Someone forgot to tell that to the brothers and head coaches of Highland Park’s DI and DII teams, Derek and Ross Thompson, respectively. Their teams played with poise, confidence, and skill and battled through to claim their respective titles.
