With pro lax paying what it does, the objective is to use lacrosse to get into the best academic school possible (that happens to be a good fit otherwise) and get scholarship money if available. Its really that simple. If going to a Stanford, Vandy, Duke, Georgetown, BC, ND et al is available at a deep discount (or getting into an Ivy period) is an option, do it now.

did you ever stop to think that maybe they're playing and putting in the blood, sweat and tears because they actually LIKE playing? if they don't like playing, they're definitely not going to enjoy their college years. my kid wants to go to a college that is a good academic fit where she can also see the field. going to an academic reach and riding the bench just so a parent can brag about what school their kid is at sounds like a recipe for disaster.

The bar and restaurant industry is full of lacrosse players who didn't push themselves academically. If the choice is be a role player for a a top flight academic program with a 40-50% scholarship vs being a starter at a $75k per year D3 or non fully funded lower academic level D1, the decision is easy. Life's a marathon not a sprint.

Who knows who gets recruited first, second, or last. NY parents are the first to pound their chests about it and post on their daughter’s behalf on social media. So yeah, it’s pretty clear who gets recruited first on social media.

M&D is named the top girls lacrosse club in the country, Hero's is second, Skywalkers is seventh. It is great to see Maryland's clubs so well represented.

Weird, a Florida team is number 4 and a team from Georgia is number 8.

Why is it weird?

Because they aren’t Maryland clubs…..everything revolves around Maryland

I'd love to see a breakdown of the non-hotbed commits. The number seems to be growing. Florida, Colorado, Texas, Oregon, Ohio, Georgia. would you put New Hampshire in there? lots of Tomahawks committing. Doesn't seem to be a ton of California girls this year.

go to laxbytes.com - you can filter commits by state, club, college, position etc.

Since when is going to a good academic school equated to riding the bench? The two things are not linked. You're more likely to ride the bench at MD than Hopkins, Vandy, Georgetown, any Ivy, etc. But which degree would you rather your child have?
