Of the 11 players, three were from Los Angeles, three from Orange County, three from San Diego, and one from Ventura County. All 11 players were seniors.

According to the U.S. Lacrosse, “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 his mark beyond the lacrosse field and the classroom by making significant contributions of service to the school and/or community.”

Congratulations to all selected.
