CATONSVILLE, MD — Catonsville High School 2020 graduate Sophi Wrisk has been named to Under Armour's Senior All-America Girls South Team. She plans to play at the University of Maryland in 2021 and was the only athlete selected to the 22-player South team from Baltimore County.
The honor typically culminates in a match between the South and North teams. But because of coronavirus restrictions this year, a game could not be played this summer. The selections for the class of 2020 team were made by Corrigan Sports in conjunction with Inside Lacrosse.
“Having played in the first All-America Game back in 2006, I understand the disappointment these seniors must feel being unable to take the field in a setting that many of them have challenged themselves and set goals to play in for years. I’m incredibly sympathetic to these 88 seniors who had yet another event taken from them this year, but I’m thrilled that Under Armour and CSE moved forward in tasking us to pick these teams, allowing us to honor these outstanding student-athletes," Inside Lacrosse Women’s Director Halley Griggs said in a press release. "Ultimately, this game often offers a glimpse into the incredible stars of tomorrow’s college game — and that certainly does not change with this cancellation. We can’t wait to watch these student-athletes, and all of their 2020 classmates, take the next level by storm. We can’t wait to tell their stories.”
