Calvert Hall is doing what it takes to win MIAA Championships. The rest are playing catch up. It is a new era that many MIAA teams are being left behind.

Without CH, the MIAA would look like it has the last 10 years. One year BL wins, one year McD, One year St M wins, etc. Maybe a twofer here and there. Not now

CH will keep winning until someone catches up with them. BL boarding is BL saying, we are coming. That its for international students is a joke. McD has boarders and will start using it more in future to get out of state talent. Right now, its limited boarding isnt.

If your kids like both sports equally, without question Broadneck has the best program. Not even close. If Lacrosse is all they care about, look in SP. South River is about to change drastically with Crofton High opening up next year. They will be terrible - like they were in the 90s.



Academically South River is ranked much higher than both Severna Park and Broadneck, (USNews) so that's something to consider if that's important to you and your family. Also, it depends on how important it is for your child to play in and win State Championships. Broadneck hasn't won one since 1997, where Severna Park (2004, 2006, 2007, 2010, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019) and South River (2009, 2012, 2014) have been considerably more successful in the recent past.


This is a lacrosse forum, not an academic one. But you're a complete fool if you think South River is a better school academically than Severna Park.

Severna Park runs come to a end this. Not much talent after the 2020 class is gone.
1 or 2 21’s nothing in the 22 or 23 class. Severna park club program was
Late to the party and never got started. A bunch of glorified rec players playing club now. All the talent is leaving public and heading to private now in SP


You must be a democrat... spreading fake news.

SP has at least 5 21's that will be D1 commits, at least 6 22's that will be D1, and their 23's are strong. stink on that Bernie.

SP has 1 21’s so far. The 21 class is almost done with over 600 commits. 2022 class are you
Kidding me. None of the 22’s play for a top team in its class. Mostly B/C club teams.
Same with the 23’s

This may be the most uniformed post I have read on this forum. SP athletics is completely non-existent at this point and a new AD is coming in to save the entire program. The Varsity and JV will struggle against teas like JC this year. SP will be irrelevant for the next 4 years.

no idea about severna park underclassman but there are on average 14-15 recruits per year per team. 75 D1 programs. 21's would be 60% done tops

I think you're talking St Pauls. Above is about Severna Park. St P has some very good seniors and juniors. Not as deep as others but could compete with teams other than CH

The poster was talking about Severna Park not St. Pauls. But while we're on the subject... It seems crazy that St. Pauls could have fallen sharply. The program has gone so far as to have out of state players living with alumni head coach yet finds itself in the place you describe?

You Sir are again, incorrect. The 2021 class is no where near done with recruiting. You are also incorrect about the 22's and certainly the 23's on top club teams. You really like being wrong don't you?

Us Lacrosse Magazine has a good article on CH lacrosse in the March and digital issue:

https://www.uslaxmagazine.com/high-...rt-hall-set-a-new-standard-of-excellence

There are good insights into the programs character, leadership, values, and discipline-

“The thing we do better than anywhere I’ve seen is our seniors run the show,” Cardinals assistant Joel Tinney says. “Some places, freshmen carry the balls, but not here. Our seniors are the last ones getting the balls, and they’re making sure everyone is in line. Rarely at a Calvert Hall practice do you see a coach get upset or call out a player because a senior is doing it before that.”

“It starts with leadership,” said Team USA coach Nick Myers, who has established a similar pipeline of Calvert Hall products to Ohio State, where he’s in his 12th season as the coach. “You have to start with Bryan and what he’s done.”

“What stands out about their team has always been their toughness,” says Brodie Merrill, the director of lacrosse at The Hill Academy. “They play a blue collar, ultra aggressive and physical style, not just compared to the MIAA, but all the teams that we play.”

Calvert Hall never discusses its past championships. After every practice, Kelly also tells his players that lacrosse is what you do. It’s not who you are.

Kelly got involved with the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. At an Athletes in Action meeting, he heard evangelist Billy Graham say a coach can have more of an influence than a parent.

“I realized that’s what I wanted to do,” Kelly says. “I want to have an impact on these kids. I look at Calvert Hall coaching as my ministry.”

“He cares a lot about lacrosse, and it’s a big part of his life, but he is focused on much more than that,” says Syracuse midfielder Brendan Curry (CHC ’17). “That’s a way he gains trust in us. We know he has our best interests first, even before lacrosse.”

Watched the video of Severna Park vs. Broadneck at the Rivals Challenge. I know that team well and all their top guns were there among the 35+ kid squad they brought to that event. Broadneck was clearly the better team, but Severna Park will still challenge for the state championship if they can get out of their region. They ran through the rest of the teams at the fall event judging by tourney machine.

Good Lord we get it already... Not only did you share this a million times on your facebook feeds we now have to see it here.... US lacrosse will write a great article about you as well if you donate tons of money to them like the Calvert Hall Kelly's..... Go Away you blowhards

Does beating Catonsville by one goal qualify as "running through" that team?
