Supporters of Philly lacrosse are encouraging Philly followers to make donations for Taylor Trimble (Episcopal Academy) and Allison Murray (Downingtown East) in the U.S. Lacrosse U19 team fundraiser.
Trimble (midfielder) and Murray (goalie) were chosen last summer for the squad, which will compete in the 2011 Federation of International Lacrosse (FIL) U19 World Championships in Hanover, Germany.
Trimble, a two-time winner of the Heather Leigh Albert award for the top player at the US Lacrosse National Tournament, was an All-Phillylacrosse.com pick last year and led EA to its sixth straight Inter-Ac League crown.
Trimble, who has signed a Letter of Intent to play at Duke, also was named as the No. 2 senior in the nation by ESPN RISE and was one of the top 10 Young Guns in Inside Lacrosse’s listing of the top rising seniors during the summer Trimble, who had 70 goals and 30 assists last year, plays for the Phantastix club team.
Murray, who has signed with Notre Dame, also was an All-Phillylacrosse.com pick last year when she led the Cougars to a fifth-place finish in the District 1 tournament and a berth in the state tournament. She played on the Philly Under Armour team at the UA Underclassmen Games in the summer. She plays club lacrosse for PA Express.
