Maybe next year Calvert Hall and McD should be allowed to play their already graduated Seniors and maybe a couple of their college lacrosse stars to make things more interesting.

But in the interest of fair play and not to sound unsportsmanlike ...congratulations to the 20-years-olds of Taft for their victory over the young teenagers of McD.

McD holdbacks got back beat by older holdbacks lol.

McD did play their graduating seniors??? I am not sure what galaxy you live in, but McD has many players that are 19 , Top HS lacrosse is now a holdback/prefirst game, More you have the better you are.

Even aside from the age issue, the children from Taft were rude and obnoxious, acting as if the tournament was in their honor. In the middle of 2 of my son's games the entire Taft team entered the field and started warming up in the corner where they continually stepped into the actual playing area. The ref in one game had to stop the game and tell them to get off the field.

They were a bunch of entitled $^!#$.

Not too often you can say this on this site but I AGREE with both sides of this
1. The Hawks Lids lefty is hyped by the coach and while he is a good player he is Not amongst the best I was in Tennessee and personally thought he played good enough to get the write up he got but I wouldn’t consider him a top 15 attackman in the class and fits better as a role player.
The other argument on here
2 The hype of the BL lefty because of his dad doesn’t get same criticism . Personally thought he was good not great in Tennessee as Spallina was clearly the best of the Attackman at that event and was the clear leader of that attck group and was best at event With A few other standouts behind him . The BL player was good but was not great . Following week at Main Stage “his fathers event” the BL player was outshined by a different attackman on his team Beerman and took backseat to him SO why did he get a write up and “touted” in the article at the top with Spallina (everyone knows that isn’t the case) And was thrown into the write up
So that’s my assessment now my question
Why is Lids dad involvement questioned so hard yet the other fathers Clear involvement with his buddy at Inside lacrosse not questioned While the BL player is better than the Hawks player the situation isn’t much different if you think about it.

Most prep school leagues have rule that says you can’t turn 20 during the school year....PGs included.

Crabs 2022 miss playoffs in their own tournament @Crabfeast.

Team seems to have a bunch of talent but never has done anything with it.

Ok - let’s criticize the spallina situation. Kid was a 2020 and wasn’t good so then he became an average 2021 - then they dropped him to a 2022 to hopefully get him a better ranking... for lacrosse. Absolutely ridiculous.

Lets put these rankings and write ups in perspective please. They are intended to get you fired up so you visit the site. They are garbage predictors of success. Other than Conrad, no #1 ranked player has won a championship since 2014. Only 6 of the top 10 ranked players over the past 5 years have won- that's 6 out of 40 players!!! (dont count 2020 season). Sowers was a #10 -the "4th best attackman" in his class. Ben Reeves was a #77. Blaze #74. Troutner #95 Chris Gray the 5th best in his class. Spencer #3 in his. Keep it real people. Club lacrosse evaluations are not very meaningful to say the least.

I dont have any idea about his age..But how can you go from being a 2020 to a 2022 ? Just doesnt seem like the truth. Maybe one year, that is common among the players, but 2 ??

He played up 2 years. Just like the BL kid and CH kid. Both played up in club then leading scorers (about) as freshman v seniors... not hard to figure out. good kids play.

Petro was one the greatest defenseman and has coached teams to multiple championships. His kid also happens to be very good (although a holdback). His production in the MIAA speaks for itself. Daddy Lids has no lacrosse pedigree and his kid plays for an awful HS program. Not the same.

Best attackman on Hawks is a righty that they have playing midfield so back door business and recruitment deals can be hashed out on the field. Current lefty and righty wouldn’t even be noticed without Lids- Attack unit has been a huge let down especially in big games for years- -
Hence invite 2 of the top 3 attack in entire class for summer circuit
Hence Cottle and Wood on payroll to desperately try to help
Hence every all star - showcase roster even if hurt during the entire tryout or games
Hence creating entire recruiting event just for some love from Ty on Twitter -
Hence still recruiting for Phipps and Spalding

And yes- hating is really easy to do especially after dodging the best tournament competition wise last week-
Cheers to the red cup dads that rather join them then beat em’

I think you mean they played up one year and then when they saw all the holdbacks they had to play against at their on age, the were heldback one year. So that equals two.

Good kids play up is a ridiculous thing to say in top High School lacrosse, Many of the better kids on better teams are playing down a year by their age group.

Point being made was people criticize Lids getting write up saying he was undeserving and only got it because of his fathers involvement the point being made was the same can be said with BL player after Main event clear favoritism because of friendship with inside lacrosse. Understand any of the top four attackman in this 2022 class Would be the top guy in the 21 class Kids perform they should get notoriety if they don’t they shouldn’t

The difference between the Petro and Lids thing is if anything Xanders is doing to Petro what Lids is doing to Xanders. Petro isn't doing anything to get Xanders to like him or his kid. His status gets that for him. Lids is trying to force his way into that status circle.
