Feb. 4, 2019 — The opponent of my opponent …

The highlight of girls’ scholastic lacrosse’s version of “the hot stove” is when the schedule for Owings Mills McDonogh (Md.) is posted on the school’s website. It is there where the Eagles show who they think are some of the better teams to play when they make their annual Southern swing.

In past years, McDonogh has played the likes of Vero Beach (Fla.), Milton (Ga.) and even a Novato (Calif.) with the nation’s leading goal-scorer, Charlie Rudy.

On March 16, McDonogh is playing Florida’s super-prep team, Bradenton IMG Academy (Fla.). Two days later, it is a Delray American Heritage (Fla.) side with assist record-holder Caitlyn Wurzburger. Moreover, the Eagles make a trip to Long Island for an April 6th tilt with Manhasset (N.Y.).

It’s a challenging national schedule for sure, but the Eagles are more notable for playing in a very tough league, the IAAM’s “A” Flight.

And make a note of last year’s championship rematch as McDonogh visits Towson Notre Dame Prep (Md.) on April 25th.
