Caitlyn Wurzburger committed to Syracuse before she began her eighth-grade season. It’s not unheard of these days, but it’s not the norm, either.

A great achievement for a young lady that was not granted All American status locally . . .
Here's the coverage from Inside Lacrosse! An interview video with her is at the link.
For the second-straight year, the girls' Under Armour All-America Lacrosse Classic ended with a thrilling overtime victory as the South defeated the North, 10-9. The South’s Maddie Jenner secured the final draw control (her fifth of the game) at the beginning of the
