Philly Sr., Underclasmen players gear for Under Arnour Classic

Thursday, 25th June 2009

Categories Boy's/Men's, Girl's/Women's, High School, Posted 6/25/09

Eight Philly seniors and boys’ and girls’ all-star teams will head to Maryland this weekend to compete in the Under Armour Senior All-American Games and Underclassmen Tournament at Towson University.

The Senior All-American Games will feature five Philly boys and three Philly girls, with at least one of the players on each of the North and South teams. The games will be held Saturday night as the feature attraction of the first day of the two-day Under Armour event. The Underclasmen Tournament begins with two games each for the eight region teams Saturday and then continues Sunday with a third game and then playoffs and a championship game.

The Philly girls’ team went 0-2 last year in the inaugural year of the Underclassmen tourney. The girls’ team is being coached by Lisa Murphy, the former coach at Conestoga. The Philly boys’ team went 1-1 last year, falling to New Jersey, 10-9, in the title game after whipping Baltimore in the opener. Mark Petrone, an assistant at Haverford School, is the Philly boys’ coach.

For the boys and girls, Philly opens against Baltimore at 10 a.m. Saturday and then plays Upsatte New York at 1 p.m. On Sunday, the Philly teams meet New England at 11 a.m.

The All-American Games feature four Philly boys – La Salle’s Niko Amato (goalie), Tucker Durkin (defenseman) and Tyler Knarr (long stick midfield) and Malvern Prep’s Billy Conners (defenseman) – on the North team and Haverford School’s Dan Wigrizer (goalie) on the South squad. Two Philly girls – Episcopal Academy’s Sammi Arbitman (defense) and Radnor’s Sam Ellis (attack) – will play for the North and Strath Haven’s Emily Garrity (midfield) will play for the South.

Each of the eight players were U.S. Lacrosse All-Americans this year. Knarr missed the final six weeks of the season with a torn medial collateral ligament tear in the same knee in which he suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament last year. He intends to play this weekend.

The following is the schedule and the Philly and Senior rosters.
