El Dorado Hills’ Christian Dardano was selected to the All West Elite Travelling Lacrosse team after an intense three-day tryout where Christian left it all on the field to be selected among the top eighth-grade boys lacrosse athletes in Northern California.

All West Elite Lacrosse is centered on three core principles: Respect, Attitude and Effort. Along with his teammates Christian will represent Northern California in a tri-state National Tournament in New Jersey and the West Coast Showcase Tournament in Santa Cruz this summer.

Christian currently plays for the U15 United of the Folsom Lacrosse Club and recently scored the winning goal in overtime in a 7-6 victory over Sierra Foothill.

Last year, Christian was voted “Most Improved” by the coaches and was a Club MVP Class (Commitmennt, Leadership, Attirude, Spirit, Skill) award winner.

Earlier this year, Christian, representing the Jr. Trojans’ football program, participated in the California-Florida Youth All Star Shrine Bowl games back east.
