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.”

This can't be happening to me

Several years ago, as part of an assignment for Linda Spear’s writers’ workshop, I began developing a short story. With a dear friend’s permission, I wrote of her long-ago troubling encounter; again, with her permission, I am sharing it with you. I wrote it in the first person, and all names, some facts and locations were changed to protect her privacy.

Hitting the road, Part I

Nothing captures the imagination of the American traveler like a good old-fashioned road trip. It reminds me of when I was a kid, packing the car for our annual family trip to Atlantic City. My primary function was to complain that there was not enough snacks and Hawaiian Punch to last the epic three-hour journey. I remember these trips as a lot more fun than they probably were, partly because I ...

A gentleman and a gentle man

My father crossed the River Styx in his 92nd year. He did not go gentle into that good night, but after diagnosing his own problem, fought to keep his promise to my mother and not leave her alone after nearly 70 years. He was a lateral thinker and lucid to his last breath.  

My parents were very private people who shared seven decades of being together, not only as husband and wife but ...

I Come from the Land Down Under

I know this is a family column, so I’m going to put this in as delicate terms as possible.

This morning I woke up and I knew, as sure as the sun shines over Bora Bora, that something was very, very wrong in that place in my body where the Bora Bora sun doesn’t shine.

It’s that place I used to refer to my daughter as her hoo-hoo. But it certainly wasn’t a happy ...
