Brine/USL High School Girls' Players of the Week (May 1)


The Brine/US Lacrosse Players of the Week are named each Tuesday to recognize the most outstanding individual performances in high school girls’ lacrosse in each of the five regions — Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, South, Midwest and West — outlined in our high school coverage.


Kelly Trotta, Manhasset (N.Y.).

Trotta netted the winner in a 13-12 decision over previously top-ranked Darien (Conn.) and finished with five goals. She also tallied three goals in a 10-3 win over ranked rival Garden City (N.Y.). Trotta started the week with two goals and two assists in a 16-5 win over Wantagh (N.Y.). The junior is committed to Marist.

Also notable: Amanda Cramer, Fayetteville-Manlius (N.Y.); Grace Tauckus, Cold Spring Harbor (N.Y.)

— Will Cleveland


Rachel Scheinberg, Glenelg (Md.)

The senior scored a career-high six goals as Glenelg toppled Bishop Ireton (Va.) 13-6 last week in a meeting of power programs. The Johns Hopkins commit helped the Gladiators to an 8-2 lead at halftime to propel them to victory.

Also notable: Caitlin Telesco, Ridgewood (N.J.); Kayla Frank, Moorestown (N.J.); Dana Carlson, Springfield-Delco (Pa.); Katie Crager, Episcopal Academy (Pa.)

— Mike Loveday


Jackie Norsworthy, Lake Highland Prep (Fla.)

The sophomore attacker, who used to attend and play lacrosse for Glenelg (Md.), scored six goals and had seven draw controls and three ground balls in a 15-3 win over West Orange (Fla.) in a Florida High School Athletic Association regional quarterfinal last week.

Also notable: Caroline Kimel, Cardinal Gibbons (N.C.); Cameron Nagao, Creekside (Fla.); Kayleigh Jackson, Mill Creek (Ga.); Allie Dreyer, Kennesaw Mountain (Ga.); Elizabeth Farnsworth, Hutchison (Tenn.); Bailey Barker, St. Stephen’s (Fla.); Anna Winkeler, Episcopal Dallas (Texas.)

Riley Dolan, Loyola Academy (Ill.)

Dolan repeats as Player of the Week after leading Loyola Academy to wins over New Trier (Ill.) and Cathedral (Ind.). With Loyola banged up, she scored four goals in both contests. She also won a total of 13 draws and added three ground balls against Cathedral. Dolan has signed a national letter of intent to play at Holy Cross.

Also notable: Katherine Burnside, Cathedral (Ind.); Kelly Csenar, Carmel (Ind.); Brooke Lewis, Eden Prairie (Minn.); Mekenzie VanderMolen, Rockford (Mich.)

— Justin Boggs


Kelli McKinnon, Torrey Pines (Calif.)

The senior led the way as the Falcons avenged an early-season loss to La Costa Canyon (Calif.), tallying three goals in the 10-5 win. The victory likely wraps up the Avocado West League title and the No. 1 seed in the upcoming CIF San Diego Open Division Playoffs for the Falcons.

Also notable: Ella Marks, Colorado Academy (Colo.); Niki Miles, St. Margaret’s (Calif.); Hali Sibilia, Cherry Creek (Colo.); Maggie Sweeney, Bainbridge Island (Wash.); DJ Wilmott, Novato (Calif.)
