Johns Hopkins University's historic Homewood Field will host the 2018 Under Armour All-America Lacrosse games Saturday, June 30, 2018. The games were previously played at Towson University and draw some of the best lacrosse players across the nation.
"It's a tribute to the event's reputation and an honor to bring the All-America games to the sport's most historic venue, Homewood Field," said Lee Corrigan, president of Corrigan Sports Enterprises, which manages the event.
The 2018 Under Armour Underclass Tournament, played simultaneously with the All-America senior games, will remain at Towson University. It will expand for the second time in three years, by adding the Connecticut/New York (CONNY) area as the 12th region.
The event traditionally attracts college coaches from the nation's top programs. Open to student-athletes from the graduating classes of 2019 to 2022, the Underclass competition features boys' and girls' teams from 12 different areas of the nation. The Underclass Tournament will run from June 28 to July 1.
PNC Lacrosse Spotlight: Hereford Attackman JD Nozemack
Hereford attackman JD Nozemack was a US Lacrosse All-American after another stellar season for the Bulls. He finished with 75 goals and 51 assists for 126 points, leading Hereford to the Class 3A/2A state semifinals. Nozemack has committed to Monmouth.
How honored were you to be named a US Lacrosse All-American?
JD Nozemack: It was a great honor and what made it even better was that I got to make it with one of my best friends, Scott Middleton, who I've played with since I was 5.
How has your game improved over the last year?
JDN: I've worked a lot in the offseason on my speed and strength. This has helped me have more balance in goals and assists. I'm seeing more face guarding and double teams, so I've had to really focus on feeding.
What are your goals for the upcoming lacrosse season?
JDN: Our team has one goal and that's to win the state championship. Last year I had 126 total points, but we didn't win it all. This year I will need to do more in order for us to win states.
