He's a 5-11, 160 and a wiz with a lacrosse stick in his hands. Dublin Jerome's Marek Tzagournis has shattered the points record for Ohio high school lacrosse and he's done it by sharing the rock. During his senior season, Tzagournis has scored 68 goals but contributed 75 assists. He would rather pass than shoot. "I like to get others involved and that gives those players confidence and we're better as a team," Tzagournis told ABC-6. "That mentality will help as we go into next few games that will be harder."
Tzagournis set the Ohio high school Lacrosse record with career point 410. He's now at 429 points thanks to ten points gathered against Olentangy Orange Tuesday night in a 22-10 win that advances the Celtics to the Regional Final Thursday night against Olentangy Liberty at 6 pm in Dublin.
Remarkably Marek set the record in just 3 seasons due to COVID, the only defense for Marek's game multi-faceted game. "He's a scorer and a facilitator," said Jerome Head Coach Andy Asmo. "He's also the best rider I've come across in high school." Riding is a defensive posture to deny the opposing team a chance to clear the ball into their offensive end.
Dublin Jerome won the State Lacrosse Title in 2021 and finished runner-up to Upper Arlington in 2022.
