Locals shine on CAA 25th anniversary women's lax team
When the Colonial Athletic Association announced its Silver Anniversary women's lacrosse team earlier this week, there were sure to be some Baltimoreans on it. Sure enough, almost half the team members played their high school ball right here.
A dozen of the 25 players selected hail from Baltimore-area high schools: Kelly Berger (Hammond, James Madison), Tricia Dabrowski (Dulaney, Loyola), Gail Decker (Mount de Sales, James Madison), Meg Dentler (Arundel, George Mason), Bridget Eder (Mount de Sales, Hofstra), Suzanne Eyler (North Harford, Loyola), Jess Marion (South River, James Madison), Michelle Meyer (Broadneck, Loyola), Megan Riley (South River, James Madison), Stephanie Roberts (Severna Park, Loyola) and Becky Trumbo (Liberty, Towson).
OK, so that's only 11. But we'll include Towson senior Hillary Fratzke, who played high school ball just a tad to the east at Queen Anne's and who lives on the Eastern Shore. Fratzke is the only active player on the team.
All of these women were All-Americans. Berger, Decker, Dentler, Fratzke, Marion, Meyer and Riley were CAA Players of the Year.
