Conestoga’s Rachel Clark said it’s a dream for many young players to compete in the Under Armour Senior All-America Game – and Saturday that dream came true.

“Every year in Under Armour Underclass you watch the Senior Games and look and say, ‘Oh my gosh I want to be her!’” said Clark, who helped the North defeat the South, 16-8, in the Senior Game at Johns Hopkins University’s Homewood Field. “I think most lacrosse players, when they are younger, could agree this is something you always dream about playing in.

“It’s so surreal, finally being able to be on the field to play at such a high level. Every single player on the field was amazing; it’s so much fun and it gets me really excited to think about playing at the next level.”

Clark – signed with Virginia – collected two goals and two groundballs in the win and was joined by Haddonfield’s McKenzie Blake (Princeton), who had two goals, three draw controls, two caused turnovers and a groundball; and defender Margaret Lawler (Moorestown, Ohio State), who had four groundballs and two caused turnovers. Meanwhile for the South, Clearview Regional’s Hailey Russo (Maryland) had a goal and two caused turnovers and Unionville’s Shannon Garvey (Virginia) started on defense.

“It was obviously so exciting, one of coolest experiences I’ve had,” said Clark. ““It was the perfect ending; seeing so many girls I will be playing against. It’s such an honor to be part of that game and that experience. It’s recognizing all the hard work and a great stepping stone to the next level.”

“It was super exciting to have such a big crowd watching that game,” added Blake. “The energy our teams brought to the game just made the event that much more enjoyable.

Clark said she had Garvey on her much of the time. The two met twice in the 2021 season when Unionville downed Conestoga in the District 1 AAA semifinals and then in states when Conestoga avenged the defeat in the quarterfinals.

“I got to play against Shannon a lot,” said Clark. “That was funny.

Clark said her team meshed well from the start and it showed on the field.

“The game is usually closer, but I am not complaining. It was fun!” Clark said. “I think we got along so well off the field that when we got on the field we gelled together. Everyone played for each other and since everyone has such a good lax IQ you saw how well it worked.”

Concluded Blake: “I think our selfless play and our excitement is what really brought us together. A lot of all star teams tend to be a lot of players playing an individual game, but since our first practice we all kind knew we wanted to win and have a good time together.

“Yes this whole experience is a great way to end a high school career and a great lead way into the future of lacrosse for all of us! It celebrated and validated all of our high school accomplishments in an exciting way.”
