Team 91 Box Takes Philly By Storm

12/30/2014 10:55 AM -

In its inaugural tournament appearance, the Team 91 Select Box program ran the table on the US Box Lacrosse Association's NorthEast Regional in Buckmont, PA.  The teams went a combined 20-0 and swept all four brackets, winning the championship in each.

Team 91 is one of the first national club lacrosse teams to launch a full scale box program.  In its initial year, Team 91 rolled out four teams ranging from 5th grade to seniors in high school.  The players on the Team 91 Select Box squads do not have to be members of the Team 91 field teams.  Players on the box teams come from nationally recognized clubs and high schools and travel all over the country to play the "Canadian" style of box lacrosse.  With the victories yesterday, all of the teams earned a berth in the USBOXLA National Championships in Los Angeles, CA later this year.

Press coverage at the event included lacrosse blogs and websites including phillylacrosse.com and toplaxrecruits.com. Click here for the story.

Team 91 Select Box players underwent a tryout process in October and trained throughout November and December.  The teams will compete in two more events throughout the winter in Washington DC and again in the suburbs of Philadelphia.

Below are the rosters of the victorious teams from the event this weekend.

About box lacrossse: Box lacrosse, also known as indoor lacrosse and sometimes shortened to boxla or simply box, is an indoor version of lacrosse played mostly in North America. The game originated in Canada, where it is the most popular version of the game played in contrast to the traditional field lacrosse game. It is played between two teams of six players each, and is traditionally played on an ice hockey rink once the ice has been removed or covered. The playing area is called a box, in contrast to the open playing field of field lacrosse.
