In 2019 the former API Diamondbacks 2026 team went winless in the top bracket. That team disintegrated during the summer and now gone.
Crabs were 1-6 and FCA 2-5 in 2019. All this info is on the GHOCO website. The rumors from this board insinuate that crabs have reloaded with 2025 kids to compete in spring 2021. FCA may have imploded this Fall.
VLC and Next Level be careful wishing for elite placement. Yeah mommy and daddy will be crowing about how their kid made it to elite but getting drubbed every Sunday will lax off the parents and make the ride home to Fairfax or Bethesda unpleasant for the little guys. If VLC and Next Level have deep rosters with elite players then go for it. If they rely on a few studs and have weak benches then play in the next bracket. No kids have fun losing 15-3
Spot on post and thank you for bringing some 'normalcy' to the conversation. I am kind of surprised Crabs 2026 is getting holdbacks now; typically you see this as they enter into their Freshman Year in HS. So my assumption is more will be coming to that 2026 team and the Crabs along with the Hawks will be the two programs competing for the #1 spot. What happened to FCA? Everyone knows this club is a feeder program for Calvert Hall; why the dramatic drop-off? My guess here is this team will reload at some point utilizing the crabs philosophy. Personally I think VLC can compete but Next Level should not be thinking about elite level lacrosse at this age group.
