Building for the future
Box lacrosse continues to play a bigger role in the American lacrosse scene and the U.S. national team looks to be at the center of that growth. At the most recent world championship in 2019, the U.S. captured a bronze medal, narrowly falling to the Iroquois Nationals in the semifinals before bouncing back to beat England in the bronze medal game.
The 2019 U.S. team was one of the most experienced box squads the country had ever fielded with 21 players boasting some level of National Lacrosse League experience. With NLL award winners John Ranagan, Joe Resetarits and Tom Schreiber joining emerging pro stars like Trevor Baptiste, Matt Rambo and Blaze Riorden, the U.S. program has a strong foundation.
