Long Beach High School seniors Elizabeth Rourke and Melissa Rubin recently signed National Letters of Intent to play Division I lacrosse next year.
Elizabeth will be attending San Diego State University. A high honor roll student, she is a five-year varsity starter and three-year team captain. She is a two-time All-Conference player, who also earned All-County and Unsung Hero honors.
Melissa will be attending University of California, Berkeley. She is a two-year team captain, who has played varsity lacrosse for four years. Melissa earned All-Conference honors from 2011-2013. She is also an All-Conference and All-Class soccer player. Melissa is a high honor roll student and a senior Scholar-Athlete.
Ironically, after being teammates for four years, the girls will be playing on rival teams next year.
