Gee thanks...my daughter made the LI list..

Where is the list? I see 1 2021 and a bunch of 2022s. Is there a team for each grade listed somewhere?

Some coaches were better at keeping the teams rotating than others.
I know everyone like to say that the teams are mostly predetermined but a few girls that went to callback were result of back-scratching. And a MCD varsity girl who performed well did not make callback!
I do like to see good lacrosse played so I’m happy for the girls that got through. Although putting yourself down as attack or defense to stick out from the crowded midfield group is suspect and noted amongst the crowd.

No tshirts this year - just bc we’re in Covid doesn’t mean they can’t find something besides a pinnie to give these kids. CHEAP!

Really? You're upset because girls tried out for positions they thought they could make? Let me guess you're the parent of the McD girl that did not make callback?

You should know by now UA is about who you know or who you can pay off. So don’t cry about now.

its more about who the coaches the teams, then look at the girls selected, top heavy with either high school player or club players of the coaches

Exactly- there is no 2021 team from LI. There was supposed to be 1 team per age group. So again, if WPLL is saying you didn't make a team, but the team doesn't exist, that is total misrepresentation and a money grab.

Seriously, sending girls emails that they didn't make the cut for a team that doesn't exist is so wrong.

Sorry. Can’t speak for your region but the Northeast/NE lists were not representative of the top players at all.

Playing for McD varsity doesn't automatically qualify you for anything. The girl I assume you are referring to has hardly played the last two years. The 2 2022 McD players that made the team are much bigger parts of the McD team than the 2021 player that didn't. Also, the 2021 girl you are referring to has never made a UA team while the 2 2022s have now made it for the second year in a row. Almost all the girls that made the team have been on a UA team previously. For 7 of them it is their 3rd straight year on the team. In terms of the structure of the tryout, every girl played in the same structure. Is it a perfect system of course not. There's no way it can be. And yes, girls that have made the team before and are known by the coaches have a better chance. But every year like clockwork people run here to complain. Everyone complained last year. Both Baltimore teams won the championship last year so maybe the evaluators know what they're looking at.

But did the "top" girls complete their applications and send video as required? if not then you cant blame those that did and made the list..

Maybe they didn’t send in apps? I’d have to assume they didn’t based on the list. But I think that kind of proves the point that it wasn’t a very competitive process.

But hey how could you know? It could’ve been. Depends on who applied. I’m not knocking anyone for trying it. You gotta do whatever you can in this environment. I’m just saying there’s girls on the list that I know who aren’t even on the top teams and are from clubs that aren’t very competitive.
