Ruiz, Garrett Named to 2013 Under Armour West Underclass Team

Two players from Orange County have earned spots on the Under Armour West underclass team and will play in Baltimore July 5-7.

Hayden Ruiz (Santa Margarita Catholic High School) and Peyton Garrett (San Clemente HS) are two of 24 players selected to represent the West at the high-profile event. Both Ruiz and Garrett will be high school seniors next year and are part of the 2014 graduating class. Both also play both midfield and attack. This past spring, Garrett led the Tritons with 63 goals and 29 assists while earning second-team All-Orange County and South Coast League Offensive Player of the Year honors; Ruiz posted 25 goals and 26 assists with 69 ground balls for the Eagles while earning All-Trinity League honors and third-team All-Orange County. Both players also have given verbal commitments to play Division I lacrosse after they graduate high school: Ruiz has committed to Boston University, while Garrett has committed to High Point University.

Ten of the 24 players selected hail from California, including Duke-bound midfielder Jake Seau from San Diego.
