Steele Stanwick. Chris Bocklet. Mark Cockerton. Chris LaPierre. Kelly Boyd. Liza Blue. Courtney Swan. What do they all have in common? Yes, they all play(ed) lacrosse at Virginia (and well I might add), but they were also all Under Armour All-Americans.
The rosters for this year's senior game, taking place 13 July at Johnny Unitas Stadium in Towson, were released today by Under-Armour with Virginia placing three girls and three boys on their respective squads.
On the women's side, Kasey Behr and Daniela Kelly made the Girls North Squad, while Ana Hagerup earned a spot on the South Squad.
Behr, a midfielder out of Northport, New York, played high school ball at St. Anthony's and also participated in the Under Armour Underclassmen games, making the all-tournament team.
Kelly, of the Peddie School in Rumford, NJ, can contribute at Virginia as a midfielder or defender. As a multi-sport athlete, Virginia coach Julie Myers is excited about her prospects, stating in a November press release, "She has a lot of talent and potential and already has had great success while still having some room to grow."
Hagerup, was listed by the fall press release as an attacker/defender, but is listed as a middie for the Under Armour All-America game. She played both lacrosse and basketball at Georgetown Prep in Washington, DC, excelling in both.
For the men's team, Virginia will be represented by Tyler Breen, Scott Hooper, and Logan Greco, all on the North squad.
Breen, a 5-11, 175 pound attackman from Shrewsbury, MA, played in the Under Armour Underclassmen tournament as well. He made Inside Lacrosse's 2013 Top 50 Young Guns Senior Rankings list as the No. 24 player, and will bring quickness and athleticism to Virginia's attack.
Hooper, a defenseman, also made the Young Guns Senior Rankings list as No. 32. A Rhode Island native, Hooper attended the Hotchkiss School in Connecticut where he also played hockey.
Greco was a late addition to Virginia's 2014 recruiting class, signing his National Letter of Intent in April. He was originally intended for Cornell, but switched to Virginia following their hazing issues and head coach Ben DeLuca was dismissed. Virginia's Head Coach Dom Starsia said in April's press release, "He is a rugged athlete, a captain and one of the top defensemen in this high school class."
Both showcase games will be shown on ESPNU this year, with the guys going first at 5PM and the ladies following at 7:30PM.
