Roundup - St. John's-PH boys join MIAA

May 22, 2003


FREDERICK, Md. - The St. John's at Prospect Hall boys sports program was recently accepted into the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association - Baltimore's private-school league.

"We've been trying for five years to get in," said St. John's-PH athletic director and boys basketball coach Bruce Kelley. "They had mileage restrictions - 15 miles from the Baltimore beltway - but at their meeting Monday, they waved the restriction. They were interested in the idea of expansion."

The Vikings girls compete in the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland. Now, their boys will finally have a league to call home.

"It's a great day for our sports program. On the boys' side, we've never had a league," said Kelley. "We've never had the opportunity to play for a postseason championship. It gives our boys something to play for.


"The beautiful thing about it is there are 29 teams and there are A, B and C levels for each sport, and you can choose which level is most appropriate for your team with each sport."

Kelley said the basketball team will compete at the A level, football, coming off its first season as a varsity sport, will compete at C and everything else will be B. Lacrosse is still undecided.
