Catholics get favored as they should recruiting from across multiple towns
What about Sister Francis?
Your list sucks. Get a life.
List is a bit of a waste for this season. Hingham is just playing in the Patriot League which they will own wire-to-wire but leaves out many of the best teams they usually play. I'm sure it's the same with many of the other teams.
Season is a wash anyways. No state tournament - no fans, just a few pickup games to try to say they played some sort of a season. Stinks for the kids.
Looking at the Catholic schools, they dont recruit , none of them will be better than the publics this season...parents choose the schools for education, just happens some decent hockey players choose that route over Prep or town. As well as the entire student body is male so there are a lot more possible players, making them deeper than most town schools.
For what its worth, SJP and MC will be brutal this season.
catholic school education is no better than public school and to say they recruit is a joke. Talented hockey players go there for a year then leave, or skip all together for prep. I would love to see the top rank public team play CM, BCH, X, etc. It would be evenly matched. Those programs get worse year after year.
