Paige Zebrowski, Shannon Curran and Lauren Smith have been named to the US Lacrosse All-Academic team for the 2011 season. The girls were among more than 1,800 high school girls’ lacrosse players from across the United States chosen for the honor.
Varsity head coaches across the country can submit up to five All-Academic players to their local US Lacrosse chapter girls’ All-Academic Chair, who confirms their eligibility and submits them to US Lacrosse. A US Lacrosse All-Academic team member is a player who exhibits exemplary lacrosse skills and excellent sportsmanship on the field while also representing high standards of academic achievement in the classroom. Additionally, the player has left her mark by making significant contributions of service to the school or community.
Zebrowski, Currran and Smith have been on the honor roll and high honor roll at Verona High School. Curran and Smith are part of the Class of 2012 and will be back on the playing field for Verona’s girls lacrosse team in the fall.
Zebrowski, who was inducted into the National Honor Society in May 2010, graduated with the Class of 2011 and will attend Fairfield University. While at VHS, she participated in Heroes & Cool Kids, a high school outreach program that gets upper-class students to talk to middle schoolers about peer pressure and bullying. She was also part of a contingent sent by the Youth Group at Our Lady of the Lake Church to help rebuild homes in New Orleans.
