Three Mercer Islanders named lacrosse All-Americans

Three Mercer Island residents were named 2012 U.S. Lacrosse All-Americans.

Mercer Island senior Connor Bernal was named an All-American selection, while senior Elena Skouras was given an All-American honorable mention.

Natalie Fox, a junior at Lakeside School, who lives on Mercer Island, was also given an All-American honorable mention.

This year 14 lacrosse players in Washington were given the honor.

Athletes on the All-American team are considered to be some of the best players in the state, and to be selected they must be an All-State selection, in good standing in their school and exhibit sportsmanship on and off the field.

The candidates are selected by a committee of varsity coaches from across the state.

Since 1987, Mercer Island has had 16 All-American selections for lacrosse.
