Elizabeth Harrison, Attack/ Draw, American Heritage Delray (Fla.), 2020 | Commitment: Florida
A tall, physical presence on the draw circle, Harrison uses her size to her advantage when she self-draws it or boxes out the 50/50 ball. Also provides offense with depth; great dodger and cutter inside the 8-meter.
Caitlyn Wurzburger, Attack, American Heritage Delray (Fla.), 2020 | Commitment: Syracuse
One of the most talented, dynamic attackers in the nation, Wurzburger defines “dual threat,” as she scores at ease and sets her teammates up to do so, as well, almost interchangeably. She’s relentless in her re-defending efforts and has great drawing abilities, as well, when called upon.
Other Florida kids noted:
Tom Peace is reporting on his blog 'Peace Report Lacrosse Blog' and LHP AD Frank Pendergrast has confirmed that former McDonogh Head Coach Chris Robinson, the dominant Girls program in America the past decade, has been hired to be Head Coach at Lake Highland Prep.
It should be noted that Chris Robinson's record includes EIGHT NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS and a 177 game WINNING STREAK!

The head coach the past season, Lauren Dean, has agreed to stay on as an assistant going forward.
Coach Robinson has held camp sessions in the Orlando area before so he is familiar with the Florida scene.
I was in attendance tonight at American Heritage and here's the four game results:
American Heritage-Boca takes down St. Thomas 16-4
Hagerty over Oak Hall 13-7
Lake Highland Prep over Plant 14-7
Vero Beach 21-9 over St. Stephen's
So we have our Final Four for Boca Raton on Thursday!
Vero Beach vs American Heritage-Boca
Lake Highland Prep vs Hagerty
Sounds a heck of a lot better than 'Regional Semifinal Results' . . .
The old way to criticize committees . . . "A Camel Is A Horse Designed By A Committee"
I'm making this point to start our analysis of the announcement of the FHSAA debate on adding a new classification, level, whatever they call it.
But that's another day.
Just take a clue from this . . .
Is it more exciting to call it the Regional Semifinal or the Sweet 16?
Not hard to make that call!
American Heritage-Delray 21-4 over Pine Crest at home
Hagerty 9-3 at home over Creekside
Lake Highland Prep 11-5 over Dr. Phillips at home
St. Stephens 17-11 over Naples on the road
