From US Lacrosse and Staff Reports
Episcopal Academy midfielder Taylor Trimble and Downingtown East goalie Allie Murray have been named as one of 24 selected for the U.S. U19 women’s national training team after a three-day tryout at University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC).

Trimble, a rising senior headed to Duke, was an All-American who led EA to its sixth straight Inter-Ac League championship. She earned All-Phillylacrosse.com honors this week and was the repeat winner of the Heather Leigh Albert Award as the top player at the National Tournament in May.
Murray, a rising senior bound for Notre Dame, led the Cougars to a fifth-place finish in the District 1 championships and into the quarterfinals of the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association tournament. She was named to the All-Phillylacrosse.com team today.

“We’re really excited about the talent of this group,” said Porcella. “The level of play – physical and mental – and the athleticism of these girls was truly unbelievable all week. We can’t wait to get to work this fall putting all of the pieces together.”
Nathaniel Badder, US Lacrosse’s national teams program director, noted: “The purity of these tryouts was really special. More than 165 girls came from 25 different states and the selectors were from 10 different states to make it a truly national event. Seeing the extraordinary level of enthusiasm and energy throughout the week was inspiring.”
