Voting under way. Seven area players are among the nominees for the Reebok High School Player of the Year, given annually to the top player in boys' and girls' lacrosse.
Downingtown East's Allie Murray and Episcopal's Taylor Trimble are on the girls' ballot, and both will represent Team USA at the Under-19 World Cup this summer in Germany.
Trimble, a senior midfielder committed to Duke, will be the captain of the under-19 team. She has scored four goals in a game three times this season for Episcopal.
A senior goalie bound for Notre Dame, Murray has led the Cougars to an 8-1 record and a No. 3 state ranking by Phillylacrosse.com. Her coach, Caitlin Barbakoff, said the four-year starter is an intense and focused captain who leads by example.
The area players on the boys' ballot are Brian Dailey (Conestoga), Forster, Goran Murray (Haverford), Joe Sankey (Penn Charter), and Matt Walters (Haverford). Voting takes place online until June 1 on laxgator.com
