Inside Lacrosse officially announced its 2020 Under Armour All-Americans Tuesday, and Maryland Lacrosse boasted an impressive number of commits on the list.
The Maryland men and women's lacrosse programs have a combined seven incoming freshman featured; four to the men’s team and three to the women’s.
On the women’s side, Eloise Clevinger and Sophia Wrisk made the cut for midfielders, and Kennedy Wilson was named to the defensive team. The accolades shouldn’t come as a surprise to many, seeing how Clevinger is ranked 14th in the class of 2020, Wrisk is 16th, and Williamson is 37th while also being named the top defender in the nation by Inside Lacrosse.
On the mens side, newcomers Gabriel Goforth, Daniel Kelly, Jack Koras, and Eric Malever all received the honor. While Kelly and Malever garnered honors at the attack positon, Goforth and Koras were named to the midfielder squad.
The four incoming freshman have had their fair share of success in high school, including state championships, MIAA titles and previous All-American selections. They’ve also been recognized for their outstanding play before, with Goforth being ranked 44th in his class, Koras being placed at No. 18, Kelly at No. 11, and Malever coming in at fourth in the class of 2020.
