Biglaxfan - The number of private schools in NCCO have definitely impacted the public school programs. But, downstate, that's not the case. The answer lies with the continued development of successful youth programs. Fortunately, that's happening throughout the state. The upstate kids have choices - private or public - and players will naturally gravitate to the schools with good programs. You saw that with Tatnall and TH in the past. It's now Salesianum's turn. Look at the roster of kids who came to Sallies from last year's Wilmington Wings. Not sure of the number, but at least 12-15 good players are Freshmen at Sallies. In fact, 9 of the 12 freshmen listed in the State Tournament are Wings grads. A very good school that happens to offer very good lacrosse is what brought them there. No reason that can't be done downstate. In fact, that's what makes the CR and Cape programs so solid. It is happening at Appoquinimink, has happened periodically at Middletown and will elsewhere as the sport grows. Lacrosse is the fastest growing team sport in America today and as more kids play, the talent will spread. Look at this year's NCAA Div 1!
