Did they? If you look at their full schedule, CH didn't beat any of the top 4 teams in the league last year. Even after they "made adjustments."
They avenged an earlier loss to St Mary's. But they lost to Spalding, McD BL.
Their only notable win was a 1-goal home win over an underwhelming Loyola squad.
+1 Spot on.

All that and they were just a 6 seed last year?

EVERY team in this league puts kids in top D1 programs.

In the bottom half of the league I know there are already kids slated for:


St. Mary’s: Maryland, Bucknell, Georgetown, Navy, Penn State, Hofstra, Johns Hopkins. Severn: Air Force, Navy, Hobart, Princeton. St Pauls: Marquette, Boston U, Army, Loyola. John Carroll: Hobart, UMBC, UPenn. Gilman: Rutgers, Army, Virginia. MSJ: Towson.

Pretty good visibility for the league, across the board.

If you play on any team in this league, ANY college is a possibility.
St. Mary’s is in the bottom half of the league after earning a 3 seed last season that included wins over Calvert Hall, Loyola and Boys’ Latin?

Inside Lacrosse standings are wrong.
St Mary's was the #3 team in the conference. CH was #6
By the end of the season when it counts CH made adjustments. St. Mary’s faded.

STM loss 4 starter by end of season. Not making excuses but take away any 4 starter from any team they would fad away also.

And yet here you are. On a message board posting about a team your kid wasn’t good enough to get playing time on.

Enjoy your laugh bahahahaha

A bunch of entitled kids on the MIAA A Championship Team; starting with the QB who is average at best.

NAILED IT!!! Both on the football and lacrosse team. Zero accountability for behaviors at CH.

Calvert Hall handles their behavior problems in-house.

It doesnt matter who should of won, who could of won. 1 team won. 10 lost. End of story. The team with the best players doesnt always win. That said, a win is a win and you cant take that away from the winning team. As for playing time, if you are good enough you will play. If you arent you wont. Same in college. No-one cares where you went to school or what conference. If you are better you play. Be big fast strong skilled and you have a shot- but still a long way to go to see the field.

Hardly. Son was a starter who got tired of the same lame players out on field while better players sat on bench. I guess you are one of those daddies .

STM was out coached all year long.Coaches agenda and game planning are horrible and have been for years.They have too much talent waisting away on the bench because of coaches egos.Bottom line is STM got worse as the year went on when other teams were getting better(BL,CHC).All these teams have so much talent waisted on sidelines and the lack of development for all players is a big part of MIAA players not seeing the field in college. MIAA Coaches simply play those kids who fit their schemes and egos and could care less about the rest. Development is gone at the High School level. Good college coaches reconize that right away within first few practices.

Hardly the case. 4 Starters? STM faded because of poor coaching period!

BL and every other team dealt with injuries and other obstacles but the well coached teams use the depth that every team has to get better as a season goes on.

BL and every other team dealt with injuries and other obstacles but the well coached teams use the depth that every team has to get better as a season goes on.

I saw STM play 3 times in person last year including both CHC games. SM's offense was not balanced last year. In other words, if a team had enough good defenders, they could shut the SM offense down. I don't know their personnel well enough to know whether this was a schematic (only certain folks were allowed or encouraged to go to the cage or shoot) or personnel (secondary players were not good enough and the bench wasn't deep enough) related weakness. On the field coaching can alter bad or unbalanced schemes but can't miraculously make up a lack of talent and/or depth. The latter is a recruiting and development issue and is tougher at smaller schools like STM vs at a CHC.

The strength of the STM team was their poles. Their SSDMs were inconsistent and their goalie was decent. They upset CHC at an in season night game at home and lost to them in the playoffs. What I saw is CHC shut down their O in the second game while the D gave up 6 games in their win vs 8 in their loss. Knowing BL well, they had more depth on their roster (they did a great job of covering for the loss of their #1 cover defender) and did the best job of coaching in the Conference. Part of their competitive advantage was utilizing quality poles at shorty to shut down attackmen who didn't have great one on one games thereby freeing up poles to stop dangerous offensive middies. This League is tough folks. If you don't have offensive depth (6 real threats on the field at all times in settled O), good defenses (especially the second time around and after lots of film study) can shut down a 2-4 person focused offense pretty easily. If any of your 6 defensive personnel is weak, look for OCs to exploit them after studying the film. Coaches often use underclassmen or weaker middies as SSDMs. If an opposing team has six strong offensive players, not having top quality varsity athletes at every defensive position can come back to bite you. Coaching defense means getting 6 top quality athletes on the field, getting them matched up on personnel correctly, teaching them proper team D (defending the 2 man game, working through picks both on and off ball, sliding correcting, communicating, etc.) and scouting the opposition so that any one of the six defenders knows how to cover any particular offensive player.

Personally, I would rather have a stud athlete with ok stickwork at the SSDM position, than a weaker (athletically) underclassman with better stickwork. If you have 6 or 7 very good poles, its better to rotate your 6th and 7th pole through the SSDM position vs trying to shoe horn a less physical/athletic middie into the role.

Lastly, in my opinion, DCs should be mining the football, basketball and soccer rosters for physical kids with great footwork for the SSDM position. Likewise coaching staffs should cull the wrestling roster for future FOGOs.

They really do speak loudly.
Loyola had the most talented team, overall, in the league last year.
And they didn't get past the QF round.
One and done.

Are you guys sitting at your desks at your jobs or on the sofa in your sweats while the smoke barrels out your ears? Who is jumping up and down in front of their screens? Anyone yet? The image I have going on is hilarious.
