Who are the 10 best high school teams in the state regardless of tuition costs or size. I want to know who would win in a had to head tournament.
I assume you are talking massachusetts ...
Sorry, based on what I've seen, I really don't think SJP, Xaverian, Hingham or Belmont could give the top 7 a remotely close game. I'd be surprised if they gave Thayer, Berkshire or Tabor who I have just outside the top ten a game either but maybe.
Thank you. This answers my questions. I have seen some Freshman making public school varsity teams and was wondering how those teams stacked up against the ISL and CC teams.
Does St. Sebs and Catholic Memorial still play against each other? For a while they used to play each other every year....
I don't see it on either of their schedules.
Footnote needed: Most seniors on the preps have repeated a schools year at some point whereas that is not the case for publics AND some preps have PG players who also repeated year when younger - they would typically be two years removed from HS.
there's quite a few 05's that are actually freshman at these preps so you can't compare.
I realize most of the ISL / Prep "hockey studs" have sta*** back and I know each team has at least 1-2 freshman on Varsity who are very good. I've been told by some that there are only 2-3 07's on some of these freshmen teams. What I've been shocked by is that kids who have been Tier 1 players since Mites making varsity teams. If they haven't been one of the best players in their age group, how are they now playing varsity.
It is with need based fin aid. Some ppl pay zero!
Agree. All you have to do is apply, worst they can say is no. We pay the equivalent of a small catholic school for an ISL education.
no way, what school is this?
My son repeated and went to Prep in MA for 2 years. I think we spent 14K per year including boarding. Not sure the going price now but was well worth it at the time. With Covid19 I would be very careful with the Prep route at least for the next year or 2 as the past 2 years have been a nightmare. My nephew has pla*** 16 games in 2 years and is graduating this year, should have went the Jr route if hockey was driving force, now will need to play at least a year or 2 of Jr hockey just to be seen.
