The Warrior 40 lacrosse camp is an elite, invite-only camp for some of the top high school lacrosse players in the country. The most recent edition was sponsored by ESPN, but with the death of the ESPNHS arm of that company, I’m not sure what the future is.
Fortunately, I’m focused on the present, since the 2012 edition, which took place last week in Denver, featured a pair of Michigan commits. Cincinnati St. Xavier 2013 attack Ian King and Whitby (Ont.) 2013 attack Austin Shanks. Shanks earned recognition on the first day for winning the shooting accuracy challenge (pictured at right, receiving his award).
As for the game itself, Johns Hopkins-bound Wilkins Dismuke was the MVP for the second year in a row, but both Michigan commitments performed well. Shanks had a goal and two assists for Team Burn, while King had two assists for the victorious Team Dojo.
