COLLEGE PARK, MD. - The past and future of the Maryland men's lacrosse program will be on display this Saturday during two of the sports premiere events.
Four former Terps, two on the Young Guns and two on the Old School team, will be playing in the 2012 Major League Lacrosse All-Star Game, which will take place on June 30 at FAU Stadium in Palm Beach County, Fla.
Jeremy Sieverts, a 2009 Maryland graduate who has enjoyed a storybook resurgence with the Denver Outlaws, and Brian Farrell, a 2011 Terrapin grad who helped the Boston Cannons to the 2011 MLL championship, are on the Young Guns squad.
Joe Walters, a four-time All-American as a Terp, is making his fifth MLL All-Star appearance and second for the Hamilton Nationals. He is joined on the Old School team by 2004 grad Lee Zink of the Outlaws, who is also making his fifth MLL All-Star roster.
