Halloran was selected to the UA Southwest Highlight team after playing in the UA Uncommitted game the past two years. The Conroe HS rising junior, who is orginally from the Northeast, made an impact this season for The Woodlands program that went 11–2.
The Under Armour All America is a unique event in that players from all over the country are selected for the Underclass teams and come play at Towson University on the last weekend of the month of June.
And it just so happens Dylan’s cousin Danielle Pavinelli, who is a tremendous lacrosse player from Long Island, was also playing in the event. So it is great to see family reunions at these kind of events.
Halloran, who has also been selected to the Cascasde National Prospect Invite event later this month in Delaware (which the PRLB will cover), has two older sisters who also are alums to the Under Armour All America event. Both of them Cassidy (2017) and Riley (2018) attend and play for the University of Vermont.
The PRLB did a Q&A with Dylan and got her thoughts on being selected to represent the Southwest.
