GIRLS' LACROSSE . . . Menlo School girls' coach Jen Lee coached the West team and had four local players competing for her at the Under Armour All-America Girls Lacrosse Classic last weekend in Towson, Md. Playing for the West team was Alyssa Sherman of Menlo plus Caroline Cummings, Brigid White and Libby Muir of Sacred Heart Prep. None of those players are yet committed to college. "Sherman was outstanding on defense," Lee said "and Muir fared the best, garnering all-tourney honors in the midfield." The West team posted a great win over Midwest (10-8), and challenged Philadelphia's team in a hard-fought game, outscoring them 5-3 in second half before dropping a 10-7 decision. The West also lost to Long Island and Washington, D.C. Next up will be the 2013 Girls' Champion All-American Showcase, July 21-23, in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. Recent Menlo graduate Michaela Michael, who missed the regular season with an injury, is back healthy and will participate again. She was the MVP of her team last year in this tournament. Michael will be joined by Cummings and Palo Alto High grad Nina Kelty. Menlo grad Ali Kim was going to attend, but had a conflict with her Brown University camp. "The Florida event is also extremely well done, and there are only four teams and roughly 80 girls," said Lee. "Nice honor, invite and opportunity."
