Serving the scholastic field hockey and lacrosse community since 1998

May 6, 2020 — Another loss for the field hockey and girls’ lacrosse communities

Remember this?

Yesterday, it was announced that Baltimore Institute of Notre Dame (Md.), one of the longest-serving all-girls’ prep schools in the country, would be closing its doors at the end of the academic year.

Amongst the casualties are the field hockey and girls’ lacrosse teams at the school, both of which competed in the “C” Flight of the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland.

The IAAM is the nation’s most high-profile lacrosse conference, and, to be fair, the decade of the 2010s were unkind to IND. The team finished at or near the bottom of the conference table every year except for a fourth-place finish in the “B” Flight in 2013. That year, the team made the postseason semifinals only to fall to The Park School of Baltimore (Md.).

The end of the decade saw the Institute finish with one season in conference play for the last three seasons, and the team was reassigned to the “C” Flight for the 2020 season. This year’s outfit team showed signs of insurrection in a 12-12 draw with The Catholic High School of Baltimore (Md.). But that game was held March 12th, only a couple of days before the nation underwent its COVID-19 quarantine, which continues, more or less, to this day.

For this girls’ lacrosse group, it would have been interesting to see what they could have done in their new conference, but the closing of the school is going to, regrettably, leave that a mystery.
