The head coaches meet virtually two weeks ago to nominate and choose the GHSA Class 1-5 All Area 8 Lacrosse teams according to Islands High School Head Coach Chris Mercer. “This means a lot to the players even though it was a shorten season. They still deserve the recognition for their dedication and hard work.” Mercer said. “I really feel bad for the seniors, because this is probably their last chance to play organized lacrosse. It’s a tough way to end your career. Having the coaches meet to name an All-Area Lacrosse team is still special to the players.”

The coaches from Benedictine, Effingham County, Islands, Johnson, Richmond Hill, Savannah Christian, Savannah Country Day, and South Effingham, were eligible to vote for their respective players and the other school’s players.

The coaches chose three All-Area 8 teams, which were from first team through third team.  The Prep Sports Report listed the selections below by school alphabetically, not by who received the most votes.
