US Lacrosse 2013 High School Girls' AAs and AAAs: Round 1

BALTIMORE, May 8, 2013 US Lacrosse today announced the first of three groups of high school girls' lacrosse players to be named a US Lacrosse High School All-American, All-Academic honoree or Jackie Pitts Award winner. Nearly 300 players in this group were recognized for their efforts on and off the field.

A total of 17 first-team All-Americans, eight honorable-mention All-Americans, 269 All-Academic honorees and four Jackie Pitts Award winners were selected from the Central Texas, Gulf Coast (Fla.), North Carolina, Orlando, South Carolina and South Florida chapters of US Lacrosse.

US Lacrosse uses a calendar-based recognition process to accommodate for the different timeframes of high school lacrosse seasons across the country. The second and third girls' groups will be announced in June.

A US Lacrosse All-American is a player who exhibits superior skills and techniques and possesses exceptional game sense and knowledge. A US Lacrosse All-American is one of the best players in the United States, while also embodying excellent sportsmanship.

A US Lacrosse All-Academic honoree is a player who exhibits exemplary lacrosse skills, good sportsmanship on the field, and represents high standards of academic achievement in the classroom. This player also should have left her mark beyond the lacrosse field and the classroom by making significant contributions of service to the school and/or community.

We are supplementing the USL lists with players' hometowns and other data where this information is available to us. When the colleges (or PG schools) players will be attending for 2013-2014 are shown, it doesn't necessarily mean they will be playing lacrosse there.

The lists are accessible on the All-Americans and Academic All-Americans pages (these links can also be found under the main Boys and Girls navigation buttons) or directly here: AAs and AAAs.

A US Lacrosse Jackie Pitts Award winner is a senior player recognized by each chapter who truly honors lacrosse, is invested in the development of the game in her community, is an exceptional player who continually strives to improve her game, and is an exemplary member of her team. She exemplifies the spirit of the game, on and off the field.
