Inside the March 2019 Edition of US Lacrosse Magazine


Caitlyn Wurzburger has been making her impact on the high school lacrosse game since she was in middle school. She starred for American Heritage-Delray (Fla.), eventually leading to her commitment to Syracuse in 2016 — making her the youngest recruit in girls' lacrosse history. Now committed to North Carolina, Wurzburger is continuing to dominate high school lacrosse while competing for a spot on the U.S. U19 team. She's one of the next big things in lacrosse and graces our March cover.

So, too, is St. Anthony's star Brennan O'Neill, who is busy making viral shots and creating plenty of buzz around his game. Originally committed to Penn State in eighth grade, O'Neill flipped to Duke last year. He's a rare recruit that possesses size (6-foot-3) and superior stick skills. He's one of the most talented recruits in decades, according to many. 

Wurzburger and O'Neill are the anchors to our high school preview edition, which drops this week. Also included in the edition, we reprised our innovation package from last year we even more content and a feature on the two-way middies that may see a rise in value with the advent of the shot clock.
