Looking at Burlington's record the past few years, it looks like all the D1 public school talent is going to the D4 private school.

Heres the deal. Catholic Central is not a cheap education. Most parents who send their kids there can afford it. Which also means they can afford to cart their kids around to numerous basketball, baseball, and football camps. These camps can be ther difference in turning an average player into a good player, and a good player into a great player. I went to BCC myself and had two years of varsity experience in everysport before I was a senior, that can also make a huge difference.

But a school (Burlington) that has 1,000+ students their record has been lacking in recent years. Even the Brad Ferstenou era wasn't all that great.

Yes the Southeast conference is a good conference but it is not all that much better than say ... The City Conference, The Metro or the Classic 8.

How can a school of 180 students have a program THAT much better. Yes they do not play head-to-head but when they've played summer league, tournaments ... BCC has consistently won.

I believe it is a combination of factors:

1. Burlington is more of a baseball town followed by football.

2. The concentration of athletes is higher at BCC, which is natural but Burlington's "concentration" actually seems weak - few 3 sport athletes, fewer exceptional athletes, few single sport standout athletes.

3. The lack of off-season basketball program at Burlington. Basketball is one of the few sports that (to compete at a high level) that almost needs to be played 12 months of the year.

So you are saying that all the parents of kids that go to the public don't have money to send their kids to camps?

Thats not what I meant to say, sorry. Now that I read what I said again it sounds that way, but I was'nt trying to say that at all. IMO camps are pushed a lot at private schools (for whatever reason), I'm guessing more then at public, but I guess I don't really know for sure. It was just my opinion, I did'nt mean to state it like I did.
