SYRACUSE, N.Y.— Jordan Barbagallo, a freshman at Mahopac High School, traveled to Syracuse on May 5 to try-out for The Under Armour All-America Underclass Lacrosse Tournament.

Two days later Barbagallo received an e-mail that she was one of two goalies selected to represent Upstate New York on the Command team in the prestigious tournament.

Each year, Under Armour, along with Corrigan Sports Enterprises, selects 20 field players and two goalies from each of the nations 11 regions to compete in a four-day tournament in Towson, Maryland which occurs between June 30-July 2.

Barbagallo, 14, has been playing lacrosse since the third grade and became a dedicated goalie in the fourth grade. She has worked long and hard to achieve this goal by training year round with private goalie coaches and playing lacrosse year round with MSA, Mahopac High’s JV squad and her league team Westchester Elite. Additionally, she has been working with Massi Machado Sports Performance and Training Group for strength and conditioning since she was 12 years old. Barbagallo did all of this while taking honors classes and maintaining a 3.85 GPA in her first year of high school.

The Adventures of Superdog

I was always very impressed that my dog could bark on command and come when I called his name, until I read in the newspaper about a dog that saved his owner’s life by calling 9-1-1. Apparently, when his owner had a seizure, the dog pushed a speed-dial button for 9-1-1, barked into the receiver for help, and then opened the door when the responders arrived.
