Kilgore named to national lacrosse team

Posted on: November 19, 2015

A Little Miami 8th grader has been selected to represent the state of the Ohio on a national lacrosse team next summer.

Sydney Kilgore was recently notified that she has been selected to join the Ohio team roster that will compete in the youth girls division at the Brine National Lacrosse Academy in Virginia on July 19-22. Kilgore was one of 20 girls selected to represent Ohio.

Kilgore was immediately offered a spot on the team following try-outs in October. She has played lacrosse for the Cincy Royals summer select travel team for two years, competing against teams in Ohio, Michigan and Illinois. Kilgore usually plays middie for the Royals, but occasionally will play attack as well. 

Kilgore also played for the Little Miami lacrosse community league’s first middle school team this past spring, serving as co-captain. The team finished with a 6-4-2 record and Kilgore scored 88 out of the 150 goals the team put up for the season.
