In 2006, Dan Fowler was a senior goalie for the Lenape boys' lacrosse team. He knows what "long-term" goals used to mean for most South Jersey boys' lacrosse programs. A division title. A conference title. Then try not to make it look so obvious when your team is fed to the North Jersey wolves in the state playoffs. "A lot of teams from this area were going to the playoffs and opening with teams who were years and years ahead of them as a program," Fowler said. Before the NJSIAA's decision to establish sectional championships in boys' lacrosse before this season, there essentially was no postseason for most of the top programs in South Jersey boys' lacrosse.
