Rancho Santa Fe resident and Pacific Ridge School graduate Tristan Ruh, class of 2015, was recently selected as a 2015 US Lacrosse High School All-American.
The award is the highest honor given to high school lacrosse athletes. Ruh and Pacific Ridge teammate Jo-Jo Biddle were among just 10 players from San Diego to earn All-American recognition this year. They join Pacific Ridge lacrosse alumnus Parker Lawlor, class of ’14, as the second and third All-American players in school history.
Ruh’s All-American selection comes on the heels of a remarkable season for Pacific Ridge Boys Varsity Lacrosse. The Firebirds finished the regular season undefeated in league play, ranked No. 2 in San Diego County, and among the top 10 teams in all of Southern California.
According to US Lacrosse, an All-American is one of the best players in the United States; a player who exhibits superior skills and techniques and possesses exceptional game sense and knowledge, while also embodying excellent sportsmanship.
The US Lacrosse Men’s Game All-American Awards and Recognition process is maintained by the Men’s Game Coaches Subcommittee and administered locally by the High School Area Chairmen. The subcommittee, through these area chairmen, oversees the selection of the awards.
