SW system is proven and it works. Their teams always jump in talent in 8th or 9th grade. Their oldest team is fully committed and that does not go unnoticed by parents looking for a program for their daughter. Increasingly, the only game in town is M&D and SW. As long as McD has the coach they have, and M&D is the perceived feeder program to McD, they will be hard to compete with. If the stronger players from all the non-McD schools play for SW, they will be able to give M&D a run for their $. If the St P coach recycles herself to a younger M&D team, St P will be able to siphon off a few, otherwise McD girls from time to time.
