Many of these schools have 3 teams in their program and still have to make substantial cuts during tryout time. They build their programs from middle school years onward. Most girls don't even make Varsity until Junior year because there are top girls in the Junior and Senior classes ahead of them. There isn't room for them until their Junior year. The competition in the IAAM is stellar for sure.

What a ridiculous statement. Just because Glenelg HS and Marriotts Ridge have won some games against IAAM teams in recent years does not come close to being 50%. If 99% of public schools played an IAAM A team they would lose by 10 goals. Not to mention that when the publics play the privates the public school girls are way more into the game than the private school girls. Severna Park goes 25-1 every year but get smoked in scrimmages against IAAM teams. Century, one of the top publics, lost to Maryvale last year who is a bottom IAAM team. There is no comparison for the most part. Name me a public school that has beaten a top private in the last 5 years other than Glenelg and MR.



Severna Park has no business being ranked ahead of most IAAM teams. They never play any top IAAM teams in regular season. They don't again this year. So you admit that you were talking about MR and Glenelg yet make the comment that public schools can win 50% of their games against IAAM teams and tell people they are wasting their money by sending their kids to private schools. First off, most of us don't just send out children to private school for athletics but whatever. Your point is absurd in terms of lacrosse regardless. Even if you want to include SP in the conversation, though they haven't beaten a top level IAAM team in years and years, you have named 3 of the 100s of public high schools that play lacrosse in Maryland. Not quite 50%.


It’s good that you don’t send your kid to private school only for lacrosse. With a lot of rosters of 30+ girls most don’t get to see the field anyway.

McD looked good at the play day. Competition wasn't all that great so tough to make many assumptions. There will be several good teams in the IAAM as always. Until they are beaten McD will always be the favorite. I believe for the first time in a long time there are some teams that have as much talent as McD so it should be an interesting season.

I agree. Quite a few IAAM teams can beat them this year to include SPSG, Spalding & NDP.

Spalding got trounced by the Stone Ridge School in a scrimmage and barely outscored Broadneck High yesterday. Let’s hold off mentioning them as possible contenders until we are a few games into the IAAM schedule.

Spalding took a hit this year with graduation on the defensive side of the field. They’re going to have to score a lot of goals to win games.

On Thursday, March 12, 2020, under the guidance of the IAAM Board of Governors, the IAAM secured approval from IAAM Heads of School to amend our spring season in an effort to serve the best interest of our student-athletes as it relates to COVID-19.

Effective immediately, the IAAM will place a moratorium on spring season league competition.
The moratorium on league competition will last through Friday, April 10, 2020
The Board of Governors will reevaluate the situation on Monday, April 13, 2020
League competition would resume on Monday, April 20, 2020, providing five (5) days of practice, prior to resuming any spring season competitions.
Regarding regular season standings, post-season play and a possible extension of our spring season, the IAAM Board of Governors, will evaluate and communicate next steps on the afternoon of Monday, April 13, 2020.

I’m hoping that there will be local ball /tournaments by July?
This may pan out to be just in-state or the states that are over the hump (Maryland and North-no Carolinas or south or west)
Tryouts for UA are June 7(may still be problematic) but tourney is in July(good by then?)

I don’t think anyone is upset the NCAA did the right thing at all for college players. They just didn’t complete the right thing. They should have added the 20-21-22-23 classes since they will be directly effected by this extra year for all current players. (I know the argument is the NCAA has nothing to do with HS-but they do have in future recruiting classes-these grad years will be 5 classes into a 4 year program, then it clears itself when 19/20 graduate). The showed this by recruiting rules put in place a few years ago. So don’t say they have nothing to do with HS. Let’s not kid ourselves. The schools just offered 5 year potential scholarships with no red shirt or injury red shirt being used. I completely agree that the kids/schools had no control of it, but we now live in do for one, have to do for all world.

So they absolutely did right by current college player in this mess, but the HS players are affected as well. Also,I realize that a HS has a long way to go to be even looked a by a college but those that do for next few
Recruiting years are impacted. They should be given 5 year paid scholarships as well. That is fair,just like doing the extra year for current college players.

They also should have put in it that you can’t transfer schools to be eligible for extra year as a senior. This has even more effect on incoming players. This is already the Wild West in transfer portal or kids with drawing from Ivys two days after announcement.

When decisions are made people need to look at all aspects. This didn’t happen.

What we always knew-the Athlete Student has arrived, no more Student Athlete. Actions don’t lie.

Is it the right thing, though? I don’t think so. I think it is terrible that it happened, but life sometimes stinks. Life lessons.
