Six players from the region have been named to USA Select Teams that will compete against teams from Ontario and the Iroquois Nation during the Brogden Cup in mid-October.
The six New Englanders were among the 44 players selected for the U18 and U16 teams after a three-day, combine-style tryout at USA Lacrosse headquarters in Sparks, Md., earlier this month.
The 44 players come from high schools from 15 states and represent 31 different club programs around the nation.
“We’re very excited to announce the players for this year’s USA Select teams,” said Natalie Wills, senior manager of the National Team Development Program, on Monday.
“We had some tremendous talent participate in the tryouts this year, leading to some difficult decisions, but we’re proud to have these players moving forward in the NTDP process and representing us against international competition.”
