BALTIMORE, M.D. — It was Livy Rosenzweig’s dream to be able to showcase her talents in the 12th annual Under Armour Girls Lacrosse All-American Senior Game and she earned that opportunity on Saturday, July 1.

Rosenzweig, who competed on the North team, which fell to the South squad 16-15 in overtime, was ecstatic to be able to compete alongside and against the best of the best in high school girls lacrosse at Towson University’s Johnny Unitas Stadium in Baltimore, Md.

“Being selected for this game is such an honor,” Rosenzweig said. “Since my sophomore year I have played with New Jersey and New England in the underclassmen games. After watching the grades above me play in the senior game, it was always my goal to play in it. For it to actually happen is crazy.”

The Loyola-bound senior competed against two of her future Greyhound teammates in Samantha Fiedler and Liz Scott, who were members of the South team.

“We know each other very well since we committed so early and we are good friends,” said Rosenzweig, who was one of 44 players selected for the game and the only player from Section 1.

To get to test her skills against top-notch talent is something that Rosenzweig knows will only help her improve her game.

“Being surrounded by all of these amazing players is incredible,” Rosenzweig said. “It definitely makes me a better player because I know I always have to be on my ‘A’ game. The level of intensity is very high and makes it so fun when we’re playing. I know a good amount of the girls from playing against them in club tournaments.”

Rosenzweig, a four-year varsity player, finished her high-school career with 267 goals, a Somers program record, and 132 assists. In her senior season she tallied 64 goals and 36 assists, leading Somers to the Section 1 Class B final. In her sophomore campaign, the Tuskers won their second consecutive Section 1 Class B title and advanced all the way to the state final.

The Somers graduate, a two-time high school All-American, said she is looking to improve certain parts of her game before heading down to Maryland to begin her college career.

“What I am working on most is my conditioning and my left hand,” Rosenzweig said. “Being able to go both left and right on the collegiate level will improve my overall game.”

Lacking Leadership, Town Struggles Through Another Series of Outages

I just gained power today, and because we have a whole house generator I was able to offer showers to residents of Heritage Hills.

We can blame the utilities for a double whammy here, increased rates and ...
