BL? Are you serious ?? BL is nowhere close to CH but I agree would fall in the 2 to 4 seed range.


St. Paul will have a hard time recruiting also since they expect the kids to go to high school in old trailers for a couple years.

The coach has been hosting out of state talent at his house with room, board & tuition and it looks like he will need to do more of it to keep them competitive.

Take it from your comment that you were at the Balto. callback game. Too bad you missed it.

The Baltimore's attack unit was second to none in the tournament save injuries, Their goalies were second to none. On the other hand their middies and poles (as a group not indivdually) fell short of the some of the other playoff teams. Just one man's opinion but their weaknesses seemed to be magnified in the playoffs.

Spalding competing for a playoff spot? What? Zero chance. JC, Severn and MSJ will be their only wins. Perennial bottom feeders.

The only Baltimore team to not win the UA Championship was the Boys Command team. You are what your record says you are.

Could not be further from the truth. 20 coaches from various local high schools, clubs, colleges and private training organizations sat down with clip boards full of notes on player numbers and voted for players whose numbers stood out at the tryouts. Coaches recognize certain players and numbers, but many coaches do not know all the players and numbers and the consensus was the same across the board with all the numbers that stood out. Nobody had to fight to get a player on the team. Coaches who had no idea which players were which numbers, picked the same player numbers from their notes as the coaches who may have known. If a player number received enough support from all the coaches, an up and down vote was taken. In other words, every player on the roster received a majority of votes from 20 coaches, many of which only knew the player as a number. It is completely absurd to think that 18 of 20 coaches thought your kid belonged on the team and he still did not make it! Instead of spending so much time on this forum spreading false information about a process and event for which you are clueless, maybe you should be using all that skill to teach your kid how to stand out at a tryout?

Sounds like you should try watching it! Sometimes your kid doesn't look as good on film as your motherly instincts remember.

I wasn't at any of the UA tryouts but I did see the final result on the field. The Baltimore team was not as athletic, fast, physical or as skilled as the DC team at the midfield and defensive positions. I don't know whether this Baltimore age group is weaker at those positions (as a group not individually)? Maybe the evaluators were bamboozled by player "club/high school hype" and/or the size of the candidates but the fact is their units couldn't match up with the DC squad. The key in picking these type of squads is picking a team, not necessarily a team of the best individual players.

Baltimore had some of the most athletic defenders in 2022 lacrosse. They played 1 bad game. The 4 games prior they were outstanding.

Giving up 8 goals to the NJ team was not outstanding. Remember the DC team only gave up 3 to this one and only common opponent. Sorry but your analysis is found wanting Dad.

Brilliant reasoning! So, what does it say about the DC defense that they gave up 10 to Balto. the first time around. Don't overload that electrical circuitry upstairs. Might trip a breaker.

5 Spalding ballers couldn’t bring home the Ship. Does that surprise anyone?
