Corrigan Sports Enterprises (CSE) and the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association (MIAA) announced the plans for the 2017 MIAA Lacrosse Championships as well as the schedule for MIAA Game of the Week online coverage (schedule below).
Johns Hopkins University's iconic Homewood Field will host the MIAA Championships in May. The MIAA 'A' Conference Semifinals will be played on Monday, May 22 with games at 5:00 pm and 7:30 pm. The MIAA will have championships decided in the A, B and C Conferences on Thursday, May 25. The tripleheader of action is headlined by the A Conference final at 7:30 pm, while the B Conference (5:15 pm) and C Conference (3:00 pm) title games are scheduled earlier in the day. Fans can find schedule and ticket information for the championships online at www.MIAALacrosse.com.
The MIAA has a well-earned reputation as the toughest league in high school lacrosse. The teams at the top change from year-to-year but the depth of quality teams remains a constant. In fact, the MIAA A Conference has crowned seven different champions in the past seven seasons. The MIAA features intense rivalries as well as players and coaches that are extremely familiar with one another. As a result, upsets in the championships are never much of a surprise.
The 2017 season will mark the start of a three-year partnership between the MIAA and Corrigan Sports to manage the annual lacrosse championships and present an online MIAA Game of the Week.
"The MIAA is the most competitive high school lacrosse league in the nation," said Lee Corrigan, president of CSE. "We are truly excited to begin a three-year partnership with the MIAA. A league with great coaches and great players unsurprisingly produces great teams. That high-level play is what attracted CSE to the MIAA and we look forward to presenting that action to lacrosse fans in Maryland."
