"Moon Area High School lacrosse standout Salvatore Pollastro had a solid year for the Tigers boys team that advanced to the first round of the WPIAL Division II tournament last month.
Now, Pollastro, a rising senior midfielder, has the opportunity to showcase his abilities for a greater audience when he and several other WPIAL athletes compete in the Brine National Lacrosse Classic from next Monday through Friday at the River City Sportsplex in Richmond, Va.
"There were two tryouts," said Pollastro, who scored 34 goals and dished out 26 assists for the Tigers during the past season. "There was a tryout in February at Pitt, and then there was a second tryout to pick the state team at Dickinson College in Carlisle on June 6."
Players from three regions of Pennsylvania — West, Central and Eastern — were at the final tryout, and Pollastro said the final roster consists of 20 players."
