Well, then he's competing on age in MD. I really hope this isn't a MD parent complaining about older kids... That would be rich! The fact is, most of that Hill team is 19, and many are PG's. I would guess some are even just about 20 or already 20. So I ask you? Shouldn't the holdback laden teams from MD be able to compete? NO. You see when you constantly play down, you crumble when you have to play on age competition. Same reason UVA, Hop and UNC are not dominating anymore. Many of their recruits are not panning out for this same reason.
Sorry but I have to challenge your logic here. The MIAA teams play against each other all season so they are not playing down at all, they are playing other teams that have holdbacks, reclasses and PGs so I dont understand where your constantly playing down comment comes from. If youre talking about club ball then your statement makes more sense but lets be honest, the MIAA is one of the toughest lacrosse conferences in the country. I think in this case The Hill Academy just happens to have an exceptional team this year and they are destroying everyone.
As for UVA, Hop and UNC, IMO UNC and UVA have serious coaching concerns, and HOP went to the final four last year and came within a buttend save of going to the championship game. I am not a fan of early recruiting but I think there is more at work with some of the bigger programs than just early recruiting. Come this May its a good bet that the final four will be represented by the usual suspects.
