Sten Jernudd, 6-5, 205, Midfield
Seattle, Wash. (Lakeside School)
Jernudd lettered four times in lacrosse and three times in basketball at Lakeside School. During his senior season, he served as team captain for both teams and was named a first-team all-state selection in lacrosse. For his accomplishments, Jernudd was named the 101 Club and Washington Athletic Club scholar-athlete of the year. He also played as a member of the Swedish national team during the 2010 FIL World Championships in Manchester, England. He led the team to a 10th place finish, scoring a team-high 26 points on 20 goals and six assists. For his efforts, he was named to the All-Presidents team as one of the top players in the tournament from a team that did not advance to the medal round.
DeLuca on Jernudd: Sten is a big, athletic guy who will bring great size to our team. Coming from Seattle, he is not quit as polished as some of our other players, but we are excited about his athleticism and his potential for growth on the lacrosse field. I think some of that potential showed this summer when he played in the FIL World Cup and led the Swedish national team in scoring.
Ross Rudow, 6-0, 185, Midfield
Danville, Calif. (San Ramon Valley HS)
A two-time high school All-American, Rudow was a four-year letter winner at San Ramon Valley high school. He served as team captain as a senior and as a junior and helped his team to an NCS championship as a sophomore. Rudow was the 2010 East Bay Athletic League MVP and was a first-team all-league selection in 2009.
DeLuca on Rudow: Ross is extremely athletic with great speed. He comes to California, so like Sten, he is a little raw when it comes to lacrosse, but he was a tremendous football player coming out of a very good program. Ross is a very smart player with a great upside and we’re excited to see how he develops.
