In addition, there were four MIAA-based players in the rankings, led by ESPN Boston Mr. Lacrosse Max Randall of Duxbury (No. 50 - Dartmouth).

Several Massachusetts-based lacrosse players, along with host New England talent, were named to the Under Armour All-American game's boys' and girls' rosters on Thursday.

Duxbury defender Max Randall and Beverly's Will Ryan, goaltender at Avon Old Farms (Conn.), will represent the Bay State on the North boys' roster. They will be joined by a talented trio from Darien (Conn.) representing New England, as Blue Wave defender Tony Britton, attack Case Matheis and midfielder Henry West all made the squad.

Also, Deerfield Academy goaltender Luke Aaron, a native of Great Falls, Va., will play with the South squad.

On the girls' side, Massachusetts is well represented with six players. Lincoln-Sudbury's Madison Acton, Thayer Academy's Bryn Boucher (Hningham) and Westwood's Laura McHoul will all patrol the midfield on the North roster while Andover's Anne Farnham and Needham's Tory Waldstein will bolster the defensive corps in front of Governor's Academy goaltender Kelsey Duryea (Beverly).

The Under Armour All-American game will be played at Johnny Unitas Stadium at Towson University in Towson, Md., on June 30. The girls’ All-American game will begin at 5 p.m. followed by the boys’ game at 8 p.m. The boys' game will be broadcast live on ESPNU at 8 p.m.

ESPN High Schools continued its feature on the Top 25 lacrosse rising seniors at each position today with a look at the defensemen.

New England was again well represented with six players making the cut, including two Massachusetts talents with Matt O'Keefe of Duxbury and BB&N's Chris Coady.

For a look at lacrosse ranking expert Tom Peace's full list click here.

Here's how the locals ranked:
4.Tanner Scales, Salisbury (Salisbury, Conn.), Virginia
Scales was named First Team All-American and New England Defender of the Year. Scales is a leader on the field and is very athletic. He sticks with his attackman and is quick to scoop up the groundballs.

6. Matt O’Keefe, Duxbury (Duxbury, Mass.), Johns Hopkins
O’Keefe is a coach’s dream on defense. He is a leader, he is aggressive, and he clears the ball with precision. Being the Quarterback for the Duxbury football team gives O’Keefe the intangibles to be a great defender at the next level.

12. Tony Britton, Darien (Darien, Conn.), Cornell

14. Bob Fahey, Bishop Guertin (Nashua, N.H.), undecided

17. A.J. Carfora, Salisbury School (Salisbury, Conn.), Penn State

23. Chris Coady, Buckingham Browne & Nichols School (Cambridge, Mass.), Duke
