Philadelphia, PA – The Canadian Lacrosse Association selected the final 24-man roster for the Canadian National Men’s Field Lacrosse Team, which includes three members from the Philadelphia Wings, who will compete at the Federation of International Lacrosse (FIL) World Championships in Commerce City, Colorado this July.
Brodie Merrill and Jordan Hall return to Team Canada after both appearing in the 2010 World Championships. Merrill will play in his third World Championships while Hall competes for his second time. Merrill was named the top defender of the 2006 World Championships. Kevin Crowley will make his debut with the senior national team this summer.
“I am thrilled for Brodie [Merrill], Jordan [Hall], and Kevin [Crowley] to have the opportunity to participate in the World Championships and represent their country,” said Wings President Michael French. “These three deserve the honor and rightfully earned the chance to compete on the world stage.”
Team Canada looks to contend for their third title this summer at the FIL World Championships in Commerce City, Colorado from July 10-19, 2014. Canada last won in 2006 when the championships were held in London, Ontario. Canada opens the tournament against the United States in a rematch of the 2010 championship game on Thursday, July 10.
