This year's Under Armour Lacrosse All-America games will feature nine girls and boys from Baltimore City and Baltimore County among the 44 top high school seniors in the nation.

The boys and girls games will be played July 12 at Towson University's Johnny Unitas Stadium with the boys 8 p.m. game televised live on ESPNU. The girls game will begin at 6 p.m.

On the roster for the boys South team are Joe Cummings (Loyola), Joey Ehrmann (Gilman), Tyler Fiorito (McDonogh), Charlie McComas (Boys' Latin) and Steele Stanwick (Loyola). The girls South team features Dana Cahill (Mercy), Liz Hamilton (Roland Park), Courtney Kirk (Roland Park) and Rachel Serio (McDonogh).

The South teams will take on the North. The contests feature players from across the country, including New York, Pennsylvania, Colorado, California and Arizona. The South boys team will be led by McDonogh's Scott Corrigan.

In addition to the All-America games, the day will include underclassman games.

Because of the large turnout the past two years, that part of the event has been extended to two four-team tournaments with teams from Baltimore, New Jersey, Philadelphia and Washington.

Tryouts will be held next month at McDonogh for the Baltimore teams, which will have 24 players each. Boys tryouts for Catonsville's Jeff Mohler will be June 10, 13 and 16 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Girls tryouts for McDonogh coach Chris Robinson are June 4 and 5 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Golf scholarship -- Carver A&T golfer Gabriella Biondo has received a $2,000 scholarship from the George E. Sonnefeld Foundation. One of the top golfers in Baltimore County during her career, Biondo also served as president of her class this year and was active in theater and dance. She has served as an anchor for the Baltimore County Public Schools monthly television news program. The foundation awards three scholarships annually to seniors who are college-bound and golf enthusiasts.

Boys lacrosse -- Because of a mix-up by official scorers, several goals scored by the Hereford boys lacrosse team were credited to the wrong players in last week's Class 3A-2A state final, in which the Bulls defeated Walkersville, 17-5. Ryan Rock led Hereford with six goals and three assists, finishing one point shy of an all-classification state final record for scoring. Trey Hilberg also had two goals and five assists, and Billy Stafford had three goals and two assists. The win gave the Bulls (15-2) their first state title since 2003 and fourth overall.

Field hockey camp -- Girls can sign up for a weeklong camp at Dulaney, July 21-25 from 9 a.m. to noon. The event will include coaches from Canada, the Netherlands and Great Britain, and is geared toward all ages and experience levels.
