I heard the Hawks 2022 coach was going to be named Head Coach at Spalding at the end of the season.

No Anne Arundel county boy grows up dreaming of putting on the red and black gear and buttoning up the chinstrap to defend the honor of Martin Spalding. It is actually a laughable thought to anyone who has been part of the lacrosse scene for more than 5 minutes.

Why is this suddenly a thing?

Easy there girl. Just cause you couldnt get in, doesnt mean that you can trash the school you know nothing about. Study hard and try again next year. Academics and MIAA lacrosse at Spalding just may not be for you. Everyone has a place in society, yours may be home schooling and badmitten.

"New Cut" is that a fancy word for Glen Burnie?

Let's unpack this situation...

Heralded recruits (and their dads!) arrive at "New Cut" this fall. This has happened before. In fact, when those stud 2022s roll up to school they will be greeted by a set of hyped but under-achieving upperclassmen whose dads had hand-delivered THEM to Spaulding just a couple years ago.

So now you have a caustic mix of daddy coaches and daddy boosters, none of whom have a long-term connection to the school and all of whom either left somewhere else disgruntled (Didn't like the coach. Didn't like playing time. Were not asked to coach, etc.) OR are so new to the sport they are clueless about Spaulding's reputation (on and off the field).

Mix in a young coach who is deeply wound into the club system and everything positive and negative that comes along with that. Oh, by the way, the coach is a Severn alum and will eventually end up back there (let's be real about it).

Sounds like a soap opera I can't wait to watch unfold over the next few years. Please keep Severna Park on the schedule.


Agreed. Although it may seem like the plan is coming together,
the clash of all the Daddy ego's will blow it apart.

For Spalding's sake I would hope this never happens. He would quickly ruin their program, in many different ways. He is far from a class act.

The Hawks 2022 team are so good for a couple reasons. First off, they practice more than everyone else. That's great that the parents are willing to get the kids there so many days a week year round, but in high school everyone practices the same amount amount so that advantage is out the window. Secondly, they have a ton of holdback kids. That advantage is also gone in high school. Every year we hear about how all these great club 8th graders are coming to Spalding. And every year Spalding stinks. It's a crappy public school charging private school prices. The real talent will always head up to Baltimore or down to DC.

That would be hilarious if Ripley takes over at Spalding. I honestly hope that happens for the comic relief.

Agreed. He is one of the worst people I have ever dealt with. Complete snake in the grass.

Why are so many hawk players going to Spalding now? What happened to the St Mary’s connection.

Could be harder admissions standards. What do you think? It is easier to get accepted to Spalding.

plenty of Hawks at both schools, but definitely a change in 21 and 22 classes.
a few reasons for the change,
one dad took his ball and went home when he didn't get his way at Saint Mary's
one dad tried to package a coaching deal if his son went there

i'm sure there are many other myriad reasons and I'm sure we will read about them in the next two pages

I had a very different experience. Found him to be generous, upfront, and fair. Great communicator and leader. Good friend and fantastic role model. I'm sorry you had a bad experience. I can honestly say I have yet to meet a coach or teacher that compares.

This is a worthy response. Quit your day job.
