Every year Inside Lacrosse pokes a little fun at the sport’s reputation as one of the Whitest, Anglo-Saxonest, Protestantest pastimes in the United States. College rosters from all over the country are perused and players with the most elite-sounding monikers are chosen for IL‘s All-Name Team.

The Stanwick family, a Baltimore lacrosse dynasty, makes two appearances. Wellington Stanwick made it onto the men’s team,  and Covington Stanwick appears on the women’s.

Here are some other favorites.

Men:

Headley VanMeter
Coleman Walsh III
Rowland Pettit
Torin Varn
Wilkins Dismuke (a Johns Hopkins freshman)

Women:

Rainey Hodgson
Kearney Sneath
Kirkland Locey
Rennie Tankersley
Addington Elliott

Inside Lacrosse is quick to point out that they’re “just having fun with a stereotype that really doesn’t really exist in the sport anymore. Lacrosse is in every part of the U.S., public schools and private, and it’s annually the country’s fastest-growing team sport.”
