With Lacrosse becoming popular in FL, GA, CA, TX ,NC the MIAA is slowly losing out to these states in Recruitment and actually playing in D1 . Looking over last years rosters of Final 8 in NCAA playoffs, ND has 1, UVA a 2, Duke 0, NC 6 , Georgetown 4, Rutgers 1 , Loyola 5 and MD has a bunch 7. A few actually start and play but majority ride the bench. MIAA aint what it used to be.

You realize the MIAA is a league, right? 11 teams in the A conference. 26 kids in the final 8 NCAA D1 tourney from one league, not state, is impressive.

Best players in state gravitate to the MIAA schools, DMV to IAC. Most college teams have less and less MIAA players. Besides a few 3 or 4 they all rode the bench last year and some have for years. Having 3 or 4 play out of 8 final college teams from the supposed best HS conference in country is not that great. 11 MIAA teams must have 250-350 players. 8 college teams have 450 players ... 3/4 play..

All these fuss in Baltimore over getting D1 this and that, holding back, best club , hit the wall, pay entire team to transfer, arent getting great results. Maybe I am missing something.

There are 230 high school teams in Maryland. All 11 MIAA “A” teams were ranked in the top 18 last season.

Send your kid where he will have a chance to get some playing time. There are never any guarantees, but take stock of the situation and be honest about your kids’ chances of playing at these schools. MIAA is great but not if you’ll never get to play.

Wait... MIAA's senior class this year sending multiple kids to UNC, UVA, Syracuse, Penn, Cornell, Georgetown, Lehigh, Loyola, Maryland, Ohio State, Penn State, Army, Navy... three of the top ten kids are from the MIAA... your right its not what it used to be... its a lot better...

Sounds like someone’s kid didn’t make it in the miaa.

While that is impressive, I doubt more than a a few ever start or play. That was the point, not if they could get recruited. The league and schools get them looks.

Year of playing have made MIAA players highly skilled with stickwork and IQ which gets them recruited. That was all that was needed to play D1 years ago. Now with influx of a bunch of very athletic players ( some less skilled) from all over country, it is becoming harder and harder for MIAA players to see the field. As the coach says, I can teach skills, but I cant teach athleticism and speed.

Playing in the MIAA isnt that hard if you are willing to put in the work, obviously you need some decent ability, its the next level that is where more than work comes into play.

Really sensitive about this subject. MIAA has great quality of players and games, No one denies that, They had Pat Spencer, Hancock and Logan Wisnauskas even tho i think he is 24/25, all great players, But each year it seems they have been having less actually play on field. I hope it changes, but it is what it is,,

Even the bottom teams in the miaa were ranked well ahead of the public state champs.

And federation rules are trash. MIAA is such a superior brand of lax and it isn’t even close.
