Article about upcoming Under Armour All American lacrosse game featuring Alex Joyce and Charlie Schnider:

Best High School Lacrosse Players To Battle In Under Armour Classic

By Dave Lomonico


One thought crept into Alex Joyce’s mind as he carefully scanned the other 43 names on the Under Armour All-American boys’ roster.

The annual Under Armour All-America Lacrosse Classic, which will pit two 22-person teams against one another in a North-South showdown at Towson June 30, features a who’s who of high school lacrosse stars, many of whom could be starring on a college field next spring.

Joyce, a goalie from Landon High in Bethesda, was one of 10 Maryland boys selected to play on the South side, while the girls’ roster featured 11 locals.

“As a goalie, when you look up and down that roster and you see guys like [attackman] Case Mathesis (Darien/Conn.) and some of the best goal scorers in the country, it’s kind of overwhelming,” Joyce said. “I’m just glad a lot of these guys are on my team and not on the North side. Being selected to this game is an honor, but it’s going to be a challenge, no doubt.”

Joyce’s task may be daunting, but he’s no slouch as a netminder. The Landon stalwart is rated the No. 88 player in the country, according to the ESPNHS Top 100, and he has been committed to powerhouse Georgetown since November of his junior year.

“I also looked at Maryland and Cornell, but the welcoming feeling, the terrific academics and the atmosphere of the school really sold me on the Hoyas,” Joyce said. “Georgetown only has a couple goalies on their roster, so I’ll have a chance to see the field early.”

Joining Joyce at the UA game will be his Landon teammate, midfielder Charlie Schnider. The No. 46-ranked recruit, according to ESPN, Schnider will head to Ohio State next season after previously committing to Maryland.

Schnider said he pledged to the Terps during his sophomore year because it was so close to home, but a few academic lapses put his scholarship in peril. Unable to meet Maryland’s grade requirements, Schnider turned to the Buckeyes in late May.

“I was thrilled with OSU, because the coaches there completely understood my situation and helped me through it,” Schnider said. “I took a trip up there after I decommitted from Maryland, and I loved the campus and all the guys. I talked to [current Buckeye and former Landon star] Luke Howard, and he really vouched for the school.”

Schnider will get a chance to meet his future teammate, Gilman’s Robby Haus, at the UA game. A defenseman, Haus committed to the Buckeyes during the fall of his junior year, though he also considered North Carolina, Notre Dame and Bucknell. …

Before Class and Co. head off to college, they’ll have one last chance to shine in front of their peers. Schnider, the Landon midfielder, said he remembered watching the Under Armour All-America game on TV last year, when the South squad emerged with an 11-9 victory.

“I was sitting here at this time last year,” Schnider said, “thinking to myself: ‘Playing in that game is exactly what I want to be doing this time next year. I want to show what I can do against the best in the country.’ Now, I’ll get that opportunity. This is a terrific way to close out my high school career.”

Summer—with commencement, the sources for stories tend to “dry up”, but BSN would welcome leads—a summer baseball camp, word of Malachi Wattley’s making the Junior Olympic team, an upcoming summer lacrosse match of note, college commitments, the attendance of a number of Bears at some event or whatever you think may be of interest.
