The 2020 Under Armour Underclass lacrosse rosters have been announced – and six Lawrentians will represent Big Red!
For the boys, Will Bennett ‘23 (defense) and Timothy Piacentini ’23 (goalie) were named to the New Jersey Regional Command Team, while Trevor Mackles ’22 (face-off) will compete for the New Jersey Regional Highlight Team. William Upchurch ’21 (attack) will suit up for the South Regional Command Team.
For the girls' Anna Hoover '24 (defense) will be part of the Philadelphia Command Region Team and Libby Ford ’21 (defense) will take the field for the Southwest Region Highlight Team.
A Corrigan Sports Enterprises statement explained that the company has shifted these All-America lacrosse games to a regional format to comply with current COVID-19 safety guidelines and travel restrictions from states represented by the tournament’s participants and teams. Boys’ and girls’ teams from both the Highlight (graduating classes of 2021 & 2022) and Command (graduating classes of 2023 & 2024) divisions will compete in the new format which features four Super Regions, with the winner of each Super Region ultimately advancing to the All-America championship weekend in the fall.
The Super Region tournament features a three-team round robin format, followed by a playoff format with the winner advancing to the All-America championship weekend later in the fall. Each team will play a minimum of five games. All games will be videotaped and provided free to college coaches. A full competition schedule can be found here.
Lee Corrigan, president of Corrigan Sports, said, “This has proven to be a unique year that demanded a creative solution to provide the nation’s most talented high school players with an opportunity to compete. We feel these adjustments help provide a safe environment for the players to test their skills against the best in their region on a big stage. The revised format hopefully offers the potential to compete in additional games during the fall recruiting period as well.
