SEATTLE – Curtis High School senior Landon Carr has been named to the 2009 Under Armour® All-America Lacrosse Team (http://www.underarmourlacrosse.com/). He is the first high school lacrosse player from Washington state to be recognized with the national honor.

The Under Armour® All-America team is comprised of the top 90 high school senior boys and girls lacrosse players in the U.S. The team is selected by a committee of the nation’s most knowledgeable figures in high school lacrosse assembled by Inside Lacrosse Magazine. Carr is among three student-athletes from western states to be selected in 2009 and just the 14th from the west coast to be selected in the game’s four-year history.

Carr, who plays midfield for the Vikings, is the Washington High School Boys Lacrosse Association Division I leader in points with 59 (35 goals, 24 assists) and ranks 7th in the league in ground balls with 58 as of May 6. As a midfielder, he was a first-team All-State selection in 2008 and second team selection in 2007. He has signed a letter of intent to play NCAA Division I lacrosse at the University of Maryland.

The 2009 Under Armour® All-America Team will compete in separate boys and girls North vs. South all-star games, June 27 at Towson University’s Johnny Unitas Stadium near Baltimore, Maryland. Carr will play for the South team.

The boys game will be broadcast live at 5 p.m. PT, Saturday, June 27 on ESPNU.
