After opening the season with a 10-9 loss at Torrey Pines, his alma mater, post-graduate midfielder Brendan Egan and Lawrenceville New Jersey went on win the New Jersey Prep A state championship. The Big Red will wrap up its season this weekend in the Geico High School Lacrosse Nationals in Washington, D.C.
The Geico Nationals will be televised by ESPN, if your weekend isn’t already full enough of lacrosse with the NCAA Final Four (Saturday and Monday) and the US Lacrosse Senior All-Star Game (Saturday, 2 p.m., El Segundo HS).
First-round games at the Geico Nationals will take place Sunday, beginning at 10 a.m. and will be live-streamed on ESPN3. Semifinals are Monday and the championship game Tuesday, all on ESPNU.
Brendan Egan and Lawrenceville open Sunday against The Hill Academy (4 p.m. PT, ESPN3). Sadly, the Hill team participating in the Geico tournament is not the post-graduate squad, which would have had Egan shooting on goalie Jason Pawlak (Agoura ’16), his former LA Mavs teammate.
Egan, who spent three years at Oak Park before playing at Torrey Pines his senior year, scored 49 goals for Lawrenceville this season, including two in the 11-5 state-title victory over The Hun School of Princeton. It appears, though, that those numbers don’t include three games Lawrenceville played in California to open the season, the loss to Torrey Pines and wins over Coronado and Bellarmine (San Jose).
After beating Hun to win the state title, the Big Red played in the Inter-AC Invitational in Philadelphia, reaching the quarterfinals before losing to Malvern Prep.
