Last May, Owings Mills McDonogh (Md.) finished its season with a national-best 155 games without defeat.
Tonight at 7 p.m., the Eagles play the first in a three-game road trip in Florida. Tonight, it’s a matchup against Vero Beach (Fla.), followed by a 2 p.m. Friday game against Milton (Ga.), a team which has to still be stinging after losing the state championship a year ago.
But then, there’s Saturday at noon, when McDonogh is going to be taking on Hill Academy, the superprep lacrosse team from Vaughn, Ontario.
If McDonogh can get through these three opponents without defeat, it’s going to be a long season for anyone else on its schedule, believe me.
