Maryland gets a few representatives on national Under 19 team

After four days of tryouts at UMBC between July 7-10, US Lacrosse announced the 23-man roster that will seek to capture the 2012 Federation of International Lacrosse (FIL) U19 Men’s World Championships in Turku, Finland.

The state has a few representatives on the team. They include defenseman Robert Enright, an incoming freshman at Johns Hopkins; midfielder Charles Raffa, an incoming freshman at Maryland; and midfielder Robert Zoppo, a soon-to-be sophomore at Towson.

Midfielder Stephen Kelly, who recently wrapped up his sophomore year at Calvert Hall, was selected to the U19 team. Midfielder Ryan Tucker, a Gilman graduate who will play for 2011 national champion Virginia, was also chosen.

Speaking of the Cavaliers, they tied Harvard with three players on the team: Tucker and defensemen Gregory Danseglio and Tanner Ottenbreit. The Crimson are represented by attackman Daniel Eipp, midfielder Sean Mahon and defenseman Stephen Jahelka.

Duke was the only other Division I program with multiple representatives, adding attackman Kyle Keenan and goalkeeper Kyle Turri to the squad.

The United States won the title in 2008, routing Canada, 19-12, in the final in Coquitlam, British Columbia.
