Catholic Memorial, prob the best program in MA history, missed the playoffs altogether last year, almost unthinkable. I think that illustrates how the Catholic schools aren't getting the same type of players they used to.
Is that why Hingham won two years ago because the public schools can't keep up? I would say the public schools are getting better and better because the talent overall is growing not the other way around.

So, you say the Catholic schools are struggling but every team you mentioned is Catholic and are almost always the most dominate schools with the except of Highham, Weymouth and Arlington.
