BERLIN- Two Stephen Decatur girls’ varsity lacrosse standouts have been named to the Brine National High School All-American team and will represent their school at the Brine National Lacrosse Classic that gets underway this weekend.

Decatur attackmen Cassidy Remmell and Blair Yesko, who each played an important role on Decatur’s varsity team this year that went 10-2 and earned a share of the Bayside Conference championship,  have each been named to the Brine National All-American team. Remmell, who was chosen to play for the North Carolina team, and Yesko, who was selected to the Washington, D.C. area team, are headed to the Brine National Lacrosse Classic at the Maryland Soccerplex, which gets underway this weekend.
