MILWAUKEE – Freshman Tyler Gilligan of the Marquette University men’s lacrosse team has been named to the U-19 Canadian National Lacrosse Team. Gilligan is one of 24 players who will represent Canada at the 2012 U19 Men’s World Championship in Turku, Finland. The tournament will begin July 12 and run through July 21.

The Whitby, Ontario, native was chosen after attending a selection camp on Nov. 25-27 in Oshawa, Ontario. A total of 50 players were invited to try out for the national team.

The U-19 Men’s World Championship is held every four years and the United States has captured six-straight titles, including a 19-12 victory over Team Canada in 2008.

In 2009, Adam O’Neill, Harry Alford and Thomas Alford launched Lacrosse Playground as the preeminent site for lacrosse gearheads. For years Lacrosse Playground provided lacrosse fans with tutorials and tips on how to string a lacrosse head, up-close looks at the gear the top players used and sneak peeks at equipment and uniforms before they were released. More than 10 years and millions of visits later, Lacrosse Playground has relaunched with a focus on storytelling. Our mission is to provide comprehensive coverage of the latest lacrosse news, share insights into the sports betting and fantasy lacrosse world and showcase the lifestyles and personalities of the sport of lacrosse through articles, videos and podcasts.
