North Carolina and Duke have good programs but look at where many of their players come from, the northeast. A few kids I went to HS with went on to place at places like Duke and Virginia and were surrounded by kids from long island and MD.

Do I really need to say which area? I'll be specific, the Syracuse area has the best Lacrosse players in terms of HS hands down. Ever hear of West Genesee, Lafayette or Fayetteville-Manlius? Those are just the periennial powers in the area and I can't forget schools like Jamesville-DeWitt, Christian Brothers Academy, Henninger, Corcoran, Skaneateles, Marcellus and Tully, among many others. Just take a look at the rosters of the college powers in Divisions 1, 2 and 3.

Then, you have the Syracuse University program, along with LeMoyne College, which won the D2 championship 2 years ago, Cortland St. won in D3 2 years ago and even Onondaga Community College won a championship recently as well.

So, I say that the Syracuse area is the place to be for Lacrosse.

Really? Over half of North Carolina's players are from the South...and 20 players on the Duke and UVA roster are from places other than the northeast. These are schools with nationally ranked athletic teams, so they recruit heavily nationwide. Of course some of the players will end up being from the northeast, but you won't be "surrounded" by them.

I'm only seeing 11 players on NC's roster from the south. I"m seeing 31 players from the northeast and the rest are from the west.
There may be some confusion on where MD is placed I guess?

Maryland certainly is NOT in the northeast...that was your claim, that most of the players are from the northeast. I'm not going to debate on which region Maryland is located in, but it's CERTAINLY not the northeast. Raleigh to Baltimore, 260 miles....Boston to Baltimore, 360 miles. Which is closer?

The confusion is on your end, my friend.
