Clean, physical, fast-paced game. GC is better than expected. Biggest surprise is on the defensive end given the poles that graduated. St A's has deep talent, will be interesting to see how they match up vs. the Flyers.


If St Anthony's has such "deep talent" why were their 2nd liners pushed around by the 2nd liners on GC?

Ok it seems like most tryouts are over and cuts have been made. What is everyone's opinion on how long do coaches do evaluations before determining where a player is placed (JV or Varsity). If it's a small margin can a decision be made in one week. Any coaches on here please chime in. Do most evaluations go on for 1 week or 2. Once a player is delegated to JV are they given a chance to play Varsity?

Worst defensive group we've had in years , the fact you omitted that clearly depicts your identity. You are a controversial distraction so keep your mouth shut and don't post about this team.


I realize this is a shot at me (an my kid) but I was not the original poster, I never ever go on this site and say anything bad about any players on any team, they are kids, I have commented in the past about parent behavior and sobriety but never about the kids, see you at the scrimmage today - peter

Ok seems like this is a response to the question about tryouts. So your saying coaches dont put much into tryouts and their decisions are already made?

I would think this is the case. You don't.

Assuming this comment was centered around Fresh & Soph you would think a new coach would have to see those Freshman vs those Sophomores against the Sr's and Jr's. Most notably in skill specific positions (F/O Goalie LSM Lefty Attack) but I think preseason takes care of that.


I also think it depends on a school, the top 5 or so schools per division east or West of 110 know who they have and who is coming in.

That said, any surprises of Freshman making Varsity over Soph (who will remain on JV) or any Fresh Sophs jumping the pecking order on the depth charts so far

ok so a coach has seen players during preseason play and has some knowledge of who is coming in. What about the evaluation of skill specific players. Does this take more time and drills that are done to put those players head to head in similar situations. Faceoff guys I think are easy. Head to head see who wins then game play. I think lefty attack and goalie are a bit more difficult. Unless there are specific drills set up and coaches watching just those players how would they be able to asses a goalie or a lefty attackman. If they played full field live games and put the players in to face same teams that would make more sense.

The top teams have coaches who are well aware of which rising players are coming their way. These guys have the players on their radar months even a season before tryouts. Come on let's be real. Pre season, winter practicing, the players on the bubble whether they are freshman or sophs- coaches have a very good idea who they are looking for and if a player is ready- waaaayyyy before tryouts begin.

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.

To be fair, the kid scored 7 goals against Boys Latin who Im sure have a few 19 year olds of their own. Kid is a great player plain and simple

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.
