So you beat MSJ, JC, and StP…wow…(insert slow and pathetic golfer’s clap here). Maybe a local public school JV team is about the right level of competition moving forward if they plan to keep those coaches and starting lineup.

If you know the guys on staff, they are knowledgeable and they are good coaches, and there's all the excuses in the world for the last few years' performance but it is pretty likely that they're gone. The gamble of putting "good" coaching in a "great" league is that you can get it done. Yesterday's loss was key in the new AD's decision process, and I'm sure the coaches know that.

Game yesterday was vs an extremely beatable CHC but LB was not ready. Lost faceoffs 2:1, a few key defensive breakdowns (and the first time I've seen those poles arguing with each other on the field), multiple passes thrown out of bounds, and more than anything, being unable to keep up with CHC's 10% better physicality without commiting a ton of penalties including multiple penalties (2 man down) on one play. CHC was very well coached and played with a high level of self control and discipline and knowing exactly what they were trying to do at all times. Aside from CHC's studs, LB may have the more talented roster........and that is a problem, given the outcome. As others have said, "doing less with more."

How about the self control and discipline of Mr. FCA screaming at HS kids becuase of clock issues. WWJD in that situation? Well, we know what a Cardinal does.

20 bucks for semis or 30 bucks for semis and finals. 10 bucks parking per day. Not sure what they have charged in the past, but I imagine the student sections will be affected. They should cut the student tickets in half if they are looking for good crowds.

Its not about the actual dollar amount of the event, its the fact that it is a HS game, steeped in tradition, that should be a way to celebrate Maryland's lacrosse community. If the money was going to the HS thats great. Money going to cover costs of $200,000 for a HS game, idiotic. Move back to Hopkins or Towson, park for free or $4 and pay $10 to get in. Playing in Navy Stadium makes no sense.

Sure it makes sense. You just don’t like it because it doesn’t fit your agenda. Your tradition stinks! Time for some changes and to get rid of you good old boy lax dads and grandpas. Bye!

Why does it make sense? BTW, dads and grandpas are very important - so are traditions.

What does Mark Dixon mean by this tweet? "If MIAA is going to allow out of state rentals for 1-2 years then they should allow kids to transfer btw schools without having to sit out a year."?

What is the benefit of having an out of state rental?

How is that related to transferring to a different MIAA school?

Are people trapped at Loyola Blakefield?

I think he is referring to players from CHC, MCD and BL having the option to transfer to other schools. I don’t believe Loyola has out of state players to the degree of the aforementioned schools nor athletic dorms/live with coaches.

So if you are an out of state kid in a dorm or rental playing at one MIAA school this year, you can switch to a different MIAA school next year, but if you live with your parents, you can't switch to a different MIAA school without waiting a year?

If you play varsity for a MIAA school and want to transfer to another you have to sit out a year.

He means that Calvert Hall has been bringing in kids from out west for a year or two who can’t finish their careers out because they age out. They get a year or two out of them and then they are done. Bob Shriver mentioned on the livestream that the Culver transfer will be ineligible for MIAA play next year despite being a junior. The middie from Avon who played for CHC last year as a junior couldn’t play this year. Another pole at CHC was in the same boat. So rentals refers to their services. The league won’t allow a kid from MSJ to transfer to Spalding without losing a year, but grabbing a kid from Colorado for a year or two is perfectly fine.

Should be played in Baltimore for the simple fact that the better teams are in Baltimore.

Meh.....if you knew any Annapolis sports parents/alumni (STM etc) you would know the AA County crowd is perennially ga ga over all things Navy. They (including public school parents) also rival any Towson MIAA crowd in terms of entitlement vis a vis "ANNAPOLIS IS THE BEST CITY IN AMERICA! ALL THE TRADITION!" Why in the world would they want to blow $30 on gas to drive to Towson? USNA is a good (not great) venue and obviously is a tourist draw. Compared to "Come to Towson U, and check out the new Whole Foods. So cool." Or JHU "just make sure you leave before the sun goes down, get some great Indian take-out on your way back to I-83!"

I'm a Baltimore MIAA dad so I would prefer the games be up here, but oh well??? There's multiple AACO teams in the playoffs and at least one will go deep. What's really to complain about....our kids already play an exorbitantly expensive sport and live in one of the most expensive areas of the USA. Boo hoo $30.

I do think that students (of any school) should be able to attend for free.

That's an opinion. If 50% of the teams in the semis are from AA County, then you would be wrong.

As long as LSG is running the show and Cottle is running LSG, it will be in Annapolis. The tickets and parking are exorbitant, but many of us will happily pay because that means our boys are there competing for a championship. Like some others have said, they should cut the students a break.

Will the semis and finals be cancelled or moved, sponsorship pulled, if McDonogh holds on in the 2nd half.

What a cry baby. Dixon has always been a cry baby. All MIAA teams promote and allow holdbacks , Now he is upset that some teams that are not LB bring in some overage ( double holdbacks) out of state players . LOL .. Waaa waaaaa Dixie

It is within the rules. So why is the holdback League upset?

You can see that it would be upsetting if you heldback before the start of high school and then needed that holdback year later when the school turned out to be not so good and you had to sit out a year to go to a different MIAA school.

Spalding coaching should be fired. The ball hog boy wonder was never slide too or too late. That alone cost them the game. When boy wonder actually was slide to early he either lost ball or was none factor. BL, StM CH all will put a better D pole on him and slide early.

He will be a non factor in next game. Does Spalding not have any film on McD. Stop one man ball hog show and you win. So simple, worked all season . I guess Spalding coaches wanted to do something else LOL

Who cares what Dixon says or any of the dysfunctional LB parents. Team can’t even make the playoffs. Will be bottom feeders year after year and they need to worry what is happening at their place versus others. CHC and BL have solid coaching staffs. Until sorry coaches are gone and players play at their full potential…. It will be same ole results of losing seasons and overrated players.

Spalding trying to get a transfer for MSJ is totally different. Spalding has tried to get several from other MIAA teams by offering $$. Can’t tamper with your own leagues players with bribery.

True qtr zip (IAC) championship: #15 Bullis 8 and #16 GTown Prep 7. IAC Season underdog Bullis pulls out a great season (15-4). Only graduating three starters. All middies, attack, goalie and foggo return. Should be a great run upcoming for Bullis!
