Long Island has a very impressive list of girls this year! Congrats to all the 2023's that went through a lot to get the final reward!!
UNC, BC, Duke, NU, Stanford, and many more great programs not located in the traditional hot beds are only getting stronger as the sport grows. They have always had to recruit away from campus and it's how they have always done business. It's amazing the NC schools created such strong lacrosse brands without much, if any local talent. Maryland is the obvious team that needs to expand their recruiting. Lets just enjoy the growth of the game and great schools adding the sport and creating more opportunities. I really think the sport of lacrosse is going to explode in the next 15 years. I'm fairly new to it, but it will not take 50 years like soccer did in the United States.
So, the winningest program in the history of the sport needs to expand their recruiting? Maryland seems to be able to consistently identify (and get) the players that they (the coaches) believe will help the program be successful.
They’ve been looking much more weak the last couple years. Other programs have surpassed them. They are not getting the top recruits.
