Long Island will be well represented in the ninth annual Under Armour All-America Lacrosse Classic this summer, which features the nation’s best senior players.

Eight boys and seven girls from the Island were named Monday as 2014 Under Armour All-Americans.

The boys game, which will be broadcast live on ESPNU, is at 5 p.m. July 12 at Towson University’s Johnny Unitas Stadium. The girls play later that evening at 7:30 p.m.

Under Armour All-Americans are selected by a panel of lacrosse experts from Inside Lacrosse Magazine.

Smithtown West is one of only two schools (the other being Boys Latin in Maryland) to have three boys representatives: Ryan Keenan, Logan Greco and Christian Zawadzki.

Babylon attack Shelby Fredericks (Northwestern) was selected but will not play because of an injury.
