A handful of local players are keeping busy this week at the adidas National Lacrosse Classic in Maryland while representing Northern California in the boys' tournament being held at the Maryland Soccerplex in Boyds, Md.
The NorCal squad was 1-1 following an 11-10 loss to Florida on Wednesday. Palo Alto residents Kris Hoglund and Clayton Jones scored goals for NorCal, which opened the tourney with a 6-4 triumph over Ohio. Palo Alto's Kevin Proceviat tallied a goal for NorCal.
Proceviat will be a senior this fall at Palo Alto High while Hoglund will be a junior. Also playing for NorCal is John Brunett and Cooper Levitan of Paly, Marcus Cassidy from Gunn, Palo Alto resident Clayton Jones, Alex Mills of Atherton and Edward Meyer of Stanford.
Proceviat, Hoglund, Brunett and Levitan helped the Vikings win the Santa Clara Valley Athletic League playoff championship this past season in only the first season of existence for the team.
