The ESD men’s varsity lacrosse team has been selected to compete in the second annual GEICO High School Lacrosse Nationals from May 27-29 in Washington D.C.
“This unique event allows elite high school lacrosse teams from the United States and Canada to face one another in a post-season tournament,” Kimberly Elchlepp of ESPN MediaZone reports.
ESD is one of only eight teams across North America that were selected to compete, with the other teams hailing from Connecticut, Indiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Ontario, Canada, and Virginia.
"It is an honor and a privilege for the ESD lacrosse program to be invited to participate in the GEICO High School Lacrosse Nationals," says ESD Varsity Lacrosse Coach, Pat Kennedy. "It is a testament to the hard work and dedication of all of our players, both past and present, and we are looking forward to the challenge of playing our talented opponents from across the country."
The quarterfinal games, all taking place on Sunday, May 27, are set to be broadcast on ESPN3, with the semifinals and finals to be broadcast on ESPNU on Monday and Tuesday. All games will be held in Catholic University’s stadium.
