Even with the continuing growth and expansion of high school lacrosse programs around the country, the majority of the most talented boys' and girls' teams still reside in Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C. And the best teams continue to come from the A Conferences of the boys' Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association (MIAA) and girls' Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland (IAAM), respectively, along with the Interstate Athletic Conference (IAC) and Washington Catholic Athletic Conference (WCAC).
Seeking to honor that talent, and advise fans of the players to watch, PressBox compiled a list of the region's best players for boys' and girls' lacrosse.
