Three teams stood above the rest in The Reporter/Times Herald/Montgomery Media area this season: Wissahickon, La Salle and Lansdale Catholic.

The Trojans, Explorers and Crusaders were the only three area teams to reach the state playoffs in 2021 and their talented athletes were a big reason why.

These three schools are well-represented in the 2021 All-Area teams and make up the entirety of the first team.

Wissahickon, the only school to advance to the state quarterfinals, landed three players on the first team: Jackson Intrieri (attack), Jake Licata (defense) and Matt Fritz (faceoff specialist). All three players were first team All-Suburban One League American Conference selections. Intrieri, the league’s Most Valuable Player, totaled 63 goals and 79 assists on the season. Licata recorded 30 caused-turnovers and 45 groundballs while Fritz, an Ohio State commit, won 74% of his faceoffs.

La Salle, the Philadelphia Catholic League and District 12-3A champions, has five players on the first team: Charlie Huntley (attack), Mason Lazasz (midfield), Jack Pilling (midfield), Will Pickering (defense) and Luke Hreshko (goalkeeper). These five first team All-PCL selections helped the Explorers capture their fifth straight league championship and 24th in the league’s 27-year history. Huntley and Lazasz each scored three goals in their championship win over rival St. Joseph’s Prep while Jack Pilling contributed on both ends of the field in the victory. Pickering and Hreshko, the PCL’s MVP, helped limit the Hawks to three goals.

Lansdale Catholic, a PCL semifinalist and District 12-2A champion, fills the other three spots on the first team with first team All-PCL selections Connor Mann (attack), Colin Corbett (midfield) and Liam Hannon (defense). Mann scored 80 goals for the Crusaders this season and added 24 assists, 57 groundballs and eight caused turnovers. Corbett finished the year with 28 goals and 29 assists. He added 67 groundballs and three caused turnovers.
