In the battle to represent Texas and the Southwest, the Lady Dragons lacrosse team will be leading the way as three players earned spots in the upcoming national Under Armour Underclass Tournament. Representing the Southwest Highlight (2017/2018) Team will be Audrey Beam, a defensive midfielder, and goalie, Chloe Monroe, while defender Jordyn Harryman will be a member of the Command (2019/2020) team. For the boys, sophomore midfielder and face-off specialist Luke Leffingwell earned a spot on the Command team.
The Southwest teams represent not only the best 22 players in Texas but Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, New Mexico and Oklahoma as well. The teams were selected via tryouts during May and June. These teams will now travel to Baltimore, Maryland, to compete in the Under Armour Underclass Tournament, against 10 other regional teams.
These ladies, as well as teammates, will also compete in the C2C Showcase event. This event brings top-level girls to the area to develop skills and display their talents to the DFW area. This showcase gives participants the opportunity to improve their games, compete and make impressions on coaches from some of the top programs in the nation.
The programs represented will include a wide range of programs including Duke, Notre Dame, Maryland, Virginia, Georgetown, Princeton, Stanford, Wagner, Louisville, James Madison and Ohio State.
