The U.S. U-19 team won its sixth straight title the last time the event was held — in 2008.

Also of note, rosters for the Under Armour Underclassmen Tournament set for July 1-3 at Towson University’s Johnny Unitas Stadium is set. The tourney will be made up of pool play featuring 10 teams during those three days. The tournament is part of the Under Armour All-America game.

You can check out the rosters for all participating regions in the Underclassmen Tournament, including Long Island, New England (which includes Connecticut), and Upstate New York by clicking here.

If you scroll down, you can also see the all-time scores of the U-19 World Championship title games.

Before we close, we have a quick programming note.

On Tuesday at 6 p.m. on MSG Varsity Channel 14 (Optimum), we will be reviewing the 2011 season in the tristate region.

The review runs an hour and we’ll be presenting our stories of the year,  first- and second-team tristate MVPs and all-stars and also take a look at what to expect in 2012. I’ll be joined by Jared Greenberg, Shawna Ryan, Jimmy Cavallo, Keith Irizarry and Lou Brogno.

We took a sneak peak at the review on Wednesday’s night’s “High School SportsDesk” show. To check out that five-minute segment, click here.

Before we close, we have some college news. Brian Brecht, who has built Siena into a perennial MAAC champion and NCAA tournament participant, has been named the new coach at Rutgers.

  1. justlaxin says:

    Quick question. How did they get down to these kids already?
    For example, why no Ty Schuldt, Conor Gately, McCormack, or even the goalie from Shen who is going to Cuse. Francia from Wilton doesnt get a shot. How many Dalers are on that list? I counted 2. Coery Hendrickson doesnt deserve a tryout? No Gordon from GC. Just seems a little strange. Not saying all these kids would make it but how about a shot.

    • slacrosse says:

      Agree. If Daniello gets a shot to try out not having played this past season all the more reason to have given a shot to another well-qualified stud or 2 from Section 1 like Gately, Schulte (+ others you mentioned).

    • Lax Novice says:

      This group could be classified as the usual guys who are selected to all the big recruiting showcases, mostly from the Class of 2011, with some college freshmen who fit the age requirement and some 2012 guys as well. If you weren’t in those groups already then they’re not adding you now.

      Good luck to all the locals who were invited.

    • inside says:

      I think you have to send in a form to get considered to try-out so those kids had the opportunity but maybe never did

  2. SirLaxalot says:

    Lots of good lax to watch in the next few weeks. Believe Under Armour Senior AA game is on ESPNU

  3. Really? says:

    When “slacrosse” says it….its ok? I see………..

    • LaxLessons Staff says:

      It’s not who said it, but how it was said. Remember our rule to always treat fellow posters with respect and avoid negative comments about high school athletes.

  4. nylax454 says:

    Schuldt is def. a snub.Just my opinion but I thought he was the best player on the best team in sec 1.GOod luck to all

  5. I kid you not says:

    Had to apply to try-out. Sometimes coaches don’t know and don’t tell the boys for whatever reason busy concentrating on winning games etc. Then another scenario might be that a parent who knows about the application process but doesn’t tell another parent because they want their son to have a better shot. Oh come on, that doesn’t really happen does it??? Politics and bs that’s the answer to why some kids are not on the list.

  6. justlaxin says:

    Coaches nominated kids. Each section had committee that selected from that list then sent in 8 or so names from each section. Then larger committee on national level only picked Prunty and Daniello as deserving from section 1. I’m sure coach Marr put up Schuldt and Mabus. Politics it is. Amazing. So many great kids not on that list.

  7. section1 says:

    Notice Carl Walrath from the Haverford School in PA isn’t on that list for some reason. Anyone know why? Best player on the best team in the nation. Going to UVa. Just wondering

  8. Lax Novice says:

    There was an age cutoff where to be eligible you cannot be older than 18 as of Aug. 31, 2011. I wouldn’t know specifically about Walrath but that could explain the absence of otherwise notable players, particularly those from prep schools.

  9. NYmike says:

    Everyone needs to chill -Here is the deal — USlacrosse divided the country into regions – nothing to do with NY sections specifically, though some overlap was there. Each region had 12 spots to submit best Lax players in the region NOT accounting for position (roughly 90 regions). Hudson Valley had a chairman, local players were in tune with the process via themselves, coaches, parents -whatever- and had forms to submit with app fee – and a commitment to specific dates AND committing to play in that world hotbed of lacrosse – Finland??!! – yeah, Finland, next year – AFTER most of these kids’ freshman year of D1 Lax (really?) – so the best 12 twelve kids were selected based on ability to commit, family considerations, personal commitment, coaches recommendations, and so on – and 3 of those 12 submitted were selected for the 120 kid pool – congrats to those kids from our area and good luck!

    And on a snarky note: Out of region, a kid from that hotbed of lax, Norfolk Academy in Va. was selected for tryout and lo and behold, his HS coach is a US19 coach – surely the kid is deserving and a great lacrosse player, but . . . c;mon, man. All these kinds of teams/processes have that going on – from Empires, to Under Armor, to U19, to Puma, to Nike, it is what it is.

    Lax on, fellas, Lax on!
