Should be interesting the next few weeks as the regular season comes to an end! Publics have been competitive with the CC's this year although the tournament is where these teams may get exposed. Although, Arlington appears to be for real.
I think throughout High School, Prep , Full Season Midget, things have become diluted.
Outside looking in:
Four or Five other publics
Best case for a public remains, get the invite and blow the play-in game, win the D-1 Public School Championship!
I think Arlington has an outside chance to advance. I don't think Hingham has much of a chance. Both deserve an invite.
Most of the publics and Central Cath are beating other public teams. Once they play the Catholics they are exposed except for Hingham and more so Arlington.
Arlington will be ranked higher than the play ins, whereas Hingham is likely a play in one and done.
Hingham could likely win the Div1 tourney while Arlington has an uphill battle.
This is exactly why we need a public champ, private champ and then a playoff between the two for state champ.
Makes sense right?
What do you mean if there has ever been a time for a public to have a legitimate shot it is now? It wasn't that long ago that Reading and Hingham won the Super 8, and when Reading won they creamed all Catholic teams along the way. Short memory
10 years? 'Only' seven years! Never going to happen...but don't tell the MIAA!
I hope Arlington can hold it together
Lots of drama on the team
Seems the coach is playing his freshman son all the time and it's causing team issues
Did they get to play on the Garden Ice? Yeah it worked out then.
Not sure about Pope in the secured column
CM / Hingham game could move Hingham up and drop Pope down. Pope has been exposed by better teams.
Didn't Pope just pound Austin!
