U.S. Lacrosse has narrowed down its roster for the 2020 U.S. Men’s U19 team headed to this summer’s World Championships in Limerick, Ireland. One of the names on the list? Wilton High School Class of 2019 alumnus Ryan Schriber.
The team’s coaches have winnowed the training roster from 104 players who began the tryout process last June, to 24–just one more than the 23 allowed per team under the World Lacrosse rules to play in Ireland for the tournament, July 9-18. The last cut is set to be made after the team’s training camp in June at US Lacrosse headquarters in Maryland and another quick camp in July.
“We are so thrilled Ryan will have the honor of representing the US in the 2020 U19 World Championship,” his mom, Lynn Schriber, told us.
According to U.S. Lacrosse, the currently rostered players represent 10 states and 14 different college programs. Schriber plays for the University of Michigan after a standout high school career for the Wilton Warriors lacrosse team. In his senior year at WHS, Schriber earned All-FCIAC, All-State and All-American honors, and was ranked 18th on Inside Lacrosse‘s Class of 2019 list, and 7th on the list of Top Defenders.
The US Men’s U19 team has won all eight world championships, most recently beating Canada 13-12 in 2016.
