McDonogh coach Chris Robinson and Notre Dame Prep graduate Covie Stanwick have been named the coaches for the girls teams competing in the Under Armour All-America Lacrosse Classic July 3 at Towson University's Johnny Unitas Stadium.
Robinson, who has guided No. 1 McDonogh to seven straight Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference championships and six straight national No. 1 rankings, will coach the South team. He has a 213-9 record in 11 years with the Eagles who are riding a 133-game winning streak.
Robinson will have two other local coaches as assistants, Marriotts Ridge coach Amanda Brady and new Roland Park coach Kim McNemar, who has previously coached at Catonsville and South River. Brady led the Mustangs to a state championship in 2014 while McNemar won state titles with both of her previous teams -- Catonsville in 1996 and South River in 2010.
For the North team, which has won seven of nine Under Armour games, Stanwick will take the helm after completing her college career as Boston College's all-time leading scorer. A three-time college All-American, she was an All-Metro attacker at Notre Dame Prep and played in the Under Armour All-America game in 2011.
Stanwick's assistants are two recent North Carolina graduates, Sam McGee and Caileigh Sindall. McGee, a Bryn Mawr graduate, ranked among the Tar Heels' top scorers while Sindall, a Good Counsel graduate, was a starting defender for the national finalists.
The Under Armour All-America Lacrosse Classic will be played July 3 at 5:30 p.m. The boys game will follow at 8 p.m.
The girls game includes 13 local players: Alex Argo, Bryn Mawr; Julia Braig, St. Paul's; Kelsey Cummings, Elizabeth George and Olivia Jenner, McDonogh; Meghan Doherty and Jen Giles, Mount Hebron; Kara Klages, John Carroll; Alexis Phillips, Archbishop Spalding; Caroline Steele, Severn; and Megan Taylor, Glenelg; will play for the South. Century's Kristen Yanchoris and Shelby Mercer will play for the North.
