Three Eagles Named U.S. Lacrosse All-Americans

Oak Park seniors Ania Brown, Emma Barrow and Morgan Shorts were among six players named U.S. Lacrosse All-Americans from the Greater LA region, the chapter announced Friday.

The three Eagles were joined by Agoura’s Lauren Harrison, Chaminade’s Emma Dawson and Landry Carrera of Palos Verdes. Oak Park coach Courtney Schneck was selected Coach of the Year after leading the Eagles to a 16-4 record and the U.S. Lacrosse L.A. Division championship.

Oak Park and Birmingham each had two players voted Academic All-Americans, and Birmingham’s Genesis Discua was the recipient of the Jackie Pitts Award, which “recognizes a graduating senior in each chapter who truly honors the game of lacrosse, is invested in the development of the game in her community, is an exceptional player who continually strives to improve her game, and is an exemplary member of her team.”

The awards are voted on by the coaches within the LA region.
