A total of 111 girls’ lacrosse players were placed on the US Lacrosse Orange County Chapter (USL-OC) Preseason All-County Watch List. The list includes three players who were named to the 2017 All-County First Team: Beckman senior Molly Allen (pictured, left), St. Margaret’s senior Cailin Young (pictured, center) and Trabuco Hills junior Hennessey Evans (pictured, right).
“Our goal with the preseason watch list is to highlight players to watch this season that could likely be candidates for All-County,” girl’s lacrosse chair Lauren Ciccomascolo said by email.
Evaluations will continue during the season as coaches will be asked to evaluate potential All-County players on the opposing team via a google form. These forms will be due to USL-OC each Sunday evening. A girl’s lacrosse Player of the Week will be selected from each week’s nominations and announced on MaxLaxOC.com. If a coach does not complete the form, their players will not be eligible for player of the week honors.
“Our ultimate goal is to have an evidence folder of names at the end of the year so that when we are deciding All-County we can ensure that all the girls deserving of this status are appropriately honored,” Ciccomascolo added.
