The Baltimore rosters were unveiled Thursday for the Under Armour Underclass Lacrosse Tournament, which will be played July 5-7 at Towson University's Johnny Unitas Stadium.
The sport's most prestigious underclass tournament will feature girls and boys teams from Baltimore, Long Island, Midwest, New England, New Jersey, Philadelphia, South, Upstate New York, Washington and the West, and consist of players from the graduating classes of 2014-2016.
Over the three days, the teams will battle in a 10-team pool play tournament. The weekend is capped on July 7 at 3:30 p.m., when the winner of each pool will play for the championship.
Here are the Baltimore rosters:
Rising senior goalie Nicholas Ramsey of Crofton and rising senior midfielders Greyson Torain of Odenton and Ryan Hursey (Westminster) were selected to the Washington team.
NDP grad Kirr joins Marquette as assistant
The Marquette women's program has announced the addition of former Georgetown attacker Jordy Kirr (Bryn Mawr) as an assistant coach in charge of the offense.
"Jordy is going to be an outstanding addition to the Marquette lacrosse family," said head coach Meredith Black, a former Towson assistant. "Jordy has such a great passion for the game and for coaching and I know she will bring championship experience to propel us to the next level. Jordy was a great player and I know she will be a great coach for us. We are excited to have her expertise with our program at Marquette."
Kirr assisted the girls lacrosse program at Loyola Academy at Wilmette, Ill., last spring and served as an assistant coach at St. Stephens & St. Agnes School in Alexandria, Va., during the 2012 season.
The Baltimore native was a four-time All-Big East Conference performer with the Hoyas, helping them to a share of three regular-season league titles. Kirr left the program in 2011 as its all-time leader in assists with 105; she ranks fourth in total points with 221 and 10th with 116 goals in 71 games played.
The Hoyas made a pair of appearances in the NCAA Division I Women's Lacrosse Championship during her tenure and claimed their first Big East tournament title in 2010. Kirr earned All-Big East Championship honors as a junior (2010) and senior (2011) as well as Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA) All-South Region honors each of her four seasons.
A 2007 Under Armour and US Lacrosse First Team All-American out of the Bryn Mawr School in Baltimore, Kirr played for the United States' entry at the 2007 U-19 Women's Lacrosse World Championship and helped the U.S. to a gold medal. She tallied one goal and five assists in the gold medal game against Australia to earn Most Valuable Player honors in an 18-3 victory.
Marquette is entering its second year of competition at the NCAA Division I level and will compete as a full member of the Big East Conference after spending the 2013 season as an independent.
Kirr takes the spot on the Marquette staff of Courtney Tamasitis, who left the Golden Eagles in May to reassume the position of head coach at Seton Hill in Greensburg, Pa., after the death of coach Kristina Quigley, a 2001 graduate of Dundalk, in a bus crash near Carlisle, Pa.
