Funny you should say that Madlax didn't have everybody since one of the TC kids noticed his cousin was playing for Madlax 26s, when he's already a holdback on Madlax's 25 team. Obviously your a bitter MadLax parent who can't take the loss. Any kids that they were missing from their team was subsidized by their 25 team. As I recall a year ago their 26 team was kicked out of the Hersey Tournament for the same thing. Everybody assumed that since it was a MadLax Tournament it was expected.

Seriously? It would be easier to drive to Long Island and play just as good if not better lacrosse. 8 hours of driving every weekend for 1 game will get old real quick.

Not the best way to judge it. My kid is nearly a head taller than his entire team and he’s a January birthdate. It’s kind of annoying when people ask, as if to belittle his play.

Lots of the holdbacks I know are smaller, which is why they held back. Obviously not always true but…

It may be annoying, but blame the epidemic of holdbacks that play in MD now. Shame that lacrosse has taken this route. Private Schools are the driver and have been since the clubs in MD went grade based 7/8 years ago.

You’re right! 91 won’t be in Elite division for them to play.

Got your teams mixed up. ML DMV 26 could have possibly had some ML DMV 25's and ML CAP 25's. I do know for a fact ML DMV 25 had 3 ML CAP 25's playing since they didn't have a tournament this past weekend. ML CAP 26 had no guests or older ML CAP players.

You are correct the ML DMV 25/26 combine team was kicked down to the 25 B for playing in the 26 division at Hershey a few years ago.

No bitterness here just looking forward to TC playing in HOCO and we shall see how confident your boys are. My guess is the ML CAP 2026 team will be in full swing and don't think TC will finish with a win so enjoy this one.

Less than 3 hr to Blandair. Weekend traffic to Suffolk is probably 3hr!

Plus Md has way better competition than LI . Not even close at 2026.

91 will be handled with ease by Crabs. No contest this year. Crabs are the team to beat. Like the coach says...cant teach athleticism, speed and holdbacks.

Good list but need to add in True Annapolis Green. Highly doubt leading edge comes in but possible and don’t think Hoco has exclusions as long as they can play every Saturday. Early Spring tournaments will shake everything out. Don’t think TRW makes the jump, Top Caliber may come up but but would have to unseat a politically connected club like FCA or Next Level. They will not go to 12 teams but could go to 10.

I think this would work out well. Creat two divisions, each Division does pool play/playoff to determine first place. Each divisions sends their top team to championship game. Would make for great final year for this age group.

PP here - I forgot about True - of course they belong on the list so actually there are 13 contenders.
