Nine girls from the Baltimore area were named Under Armour All-Americans on Monday and will play for the South team in the ninth annual Under Armour All-America Lacrosse Classic at Towson University's Johnny Unitas Stadium on July 12 at 7:30 p.m.
No. 1 McDonogh placed two players on the team, attacker Megan Whittle and defender Steffani Holmes, although Holmes won't play because of an injury.
Four more came from the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference: Molly Cobb, Notre Dame Prep; Cece Finney, Roland Park; Lauren Hudson, Maryvale; and Amanda Ignacio, Mount de Sales. Three hail from top public school programs: Taylor Hensh, Marriotts Ridge; Tianna Wallpher, Mount Hebron; and Kacie Longo, South River.
This year's North and South teams include seniors from 14 states and one Canadian province. Five of the All-Americans, including Whittle, Holmes, Hensh and Longo, are committed to play for Maryland.
Many Under Armour All-Americans have gone on to acclaimed college careers. All five of this year's Tewaaraton Award finalists, including Maryland's Taylor Cummings (McDonogh) and Megan Douty, were Under Armour All-Americans.
