Corrigan Sports Enterprises and Under Armour, Inc. announced today the 24-player roster of the Midwest boys who will represent the region at the 2010 Under Armour All-America Lacrosse Classic Underclassmen Tournament. The two-day tryouts attracted 235 players from 20 states.
The sport’s most prestigious underclassmen tournament will feature girls and boys teams from Baltimore, Long Island, Midwest, New England, New Jersey, Philadelphia, Upstate New York, and Washington, D.C. The event will take place July 3rd and 4th at Johnny Unitas Stadium on the campus of Towson University in Towson, Md. Over the two days, the teams will battle in an eight-team pool play tournament. The weekend is capped off on Sunday at 3:30pm where the winner of each pool will face off for the Under Armour Underclassmen Championship.
This year marks the second consecutive year teams from eight regions from across the U.S. will travel to Towson. Last year the Long Island Boys and Baltimore girls captured their respective tournament crowns. The Under Armour Underclassmen Tournament is part of the Under Armour All-America games that feature 44 of the very best 2010 senior class boys and girls from around the country — squaring off against each other in a North vs. South format.
The Midwest boys team will be coached by AJ Auld (Dublin Jerome High School). Auld said, “This group is much younger and less ‘big name’ driven than the 2009 Midwest team so we will rely on strong goalkeeping lead by Virginia bound Rhody Heller and Michael Nugent to keep us in games while we get accustom to playing with one another.”
Only players from the graduating classes of 2011-2013 are eligible for the Underclassmen Tournament.
