Two Philly girls – recent grads Avery Murphy (Archbishop Carroll) and Emily Santana (Springfield-Delco) – are playing in the championship game Wednesday with Team Heather Leigh Albert in the Vail Shootout High School Girls (U-19) tournament.
Murphy and Santana were hand picked by the HLA foundation out of 1,300 of the nation’s top high school players at the national tournament last summer. The two Philly standouts have been Phantastix Purple teammates for five years.
Team HLA advanced to the final with a 17-8 win over Team 180 2016. Team HLA will play Les Diables Bleus, a 16-1 winner over Puget Sound.
