Congrats to ACC and Mars for being the first non traditional finalists. Good to see other areas of the state are improving.

No one cares about PIAA lax unfortunately. If you’re not in the Inter-AC everyone assumes you weren’t good enough to play at one of those schools. There are tons of great PIAA players who get recognition via their club teams, but no teams in 2021 who can compete with the big boys.

Sadly this is true. So many great players go under-recognized because they don't have the opportunity to attend Malvern, Haverford or EA during the high school season. Gotta show out during the summer.

The interac is the best...no doubt about it, but they certainly have resources and advantages that allow them to do so. That being said....which conferences are the best in the area (top to bottom)....not just their best team.

I would say
1) Central
2) Chesmont
3) Suburban
4) East Penn (ACCC and Emmaus)
5) Catholic League
6) PIONEER

Agreed IAC has the strongest overall teams the past 15 yrs especially Malvern and Haverford, but public schools appear to have produced the better players overall.

Radnor could beat EA or Haverford this past season (Not saying it would happen every time, just saying that they definitely couldve put up a fight against either team). Malvern is in a league of its own and I was shocked that Haverford beat them even once. The "Big Boys" arent limited to only IAC teams. Schools like Stoga Radnor and Garnett could compete in the IAC.

I agree with this....the Central is very strong. Kennett this year could have competed in the Inter Ac as well (sans Malvern). Did anybody hear the rumor that Malvern is looking to leave the Inter Ac in favor of a more "national/regional" schedule?

No need to leave the Inter Ac as they can play as many big time teams as they want and still fulfill Inter Ac schedule. The great thing about lax is teams are always traveling to this area so you can play a national schedule without going out of town.

Malvern is becoming a "sports" school particularly in football and lacrosse. Wrestling and baseball could compete with anyone in the nation. This is not a shot at Malvern as they have some great coaches. Strange that they are taking this path. It used to be a strong academic school.

I agree, from the outside it does appear that the focus is on athletics. When kids hold back for a year for athletics, which is commonplace at private schools, financially it benefits private schools as they get an extra year of tuition that they would have otherwise not received. I've been to Malvern over the years for my kids basketball games and they have a Hall of Fame wall outside the gym and the squash courts and pool as well, all of which is interesting and tells you something about the importance of sports there. Public schools have Hall of Fames as well I suppose, though. Having said that, their system works, whether or not its the right fit is for you to decide. Personally, not my cup of tea, but that's just me.

MP should come back to earth a bit next year. When 5/6 offensive guys that are going D1 leave and the pipeline is solid but nothing like what they are losing on both sides of the filed.
