Is one of those the CH -> High Point goalie? Noticed his name wasn't on the roster. Thought it was odd.

There is a big wash-out between F->SO and JR->SR.
Jimmy Ruffin is suddenly playing in my head:


MIAA A Conference teams are hard to make and even more difficult to get quality PT. Aside from the inclusion of FS teams and the larger numbers included on the squad rosters, the numbers going out for the lacrosse hasn't changed in fifty years. If your point is making a squad at a smaller school is easier, once again nothing has changed there either.

It is always hard to make a roster OR get PT. But there were not 120 kids going out for lax when I went to CH in the 90s. Our roster size was ~25JV and ~35V kids, tops. We probably had closer to 80 hopefuls in the school and only half that were really any good.

I remember 85 going out for JV and 35ish for varsity. Not saying everyone going out for JV was good, but we were cutting 10-15 good players (usually freshmen) when there wasn't a FS team. My point is as follows: Interest in making the lacrosse team hasn't changed, the number of teams and spots on the roster has. I would posit there are more opportunities to play (at least in practice) now (between more HS teams, larger rosters and the club options) vs then.
