13 locals named Under Armour girls lacrosse All-Americans

The Baltimore Sun

Four players from No. 1 McDonogh’s undefeated girls lacrosse team headline the South roster for the Under Armour All-America Lacrosse Classic July 6 at Towson University’s Johnny Unitas Stadium.

Sammie Burgess, Casey Black, Maggie Preas and Posey Valis helped the Eagles to their fifth straight Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference championship and likely the final No. 1 ranking in the Nike/US Lacrosse High School Girls’ Lacrosse National Top 25. The Eagles have been ranked No. 1 all season and if they stay there, they would be ranked the top team in the country for the fourth straight season.

The Under Armour All-America teams, which honor 45 of the country’s best girls lacrosse players, include 13 local seniors on the 22-girl South roster.

In addition to the McDonogh players – the largest contingent from a single school – two Marriotts Ridge players were selected, Alex McKay and Zoe Stukenberg. Also on the South roster: Haley Bordner, Century; Sam Brookhart, Mount Hebron; Steph Lazo, St. Mary’s; Deborah Milani, Catonsville; Kelly Reese, Severn; Morgan Torggler, Severna Park, and goalie Caroline Federico, Maryvale.

The girls game will be played July 6 at 5 p.m. followed by the boys game at 8 p.m. The weekend of events also includes a three day underclassmen tournament which lasts through July 7 with the girls and boys finals at 3:30 p.m. on Towson’s grass fields.
