The Wasatch Lacrosse Club (Salt Lake City, Utah) is traveling to Philadelphia to stay at Chestnut Hill College while preparing for the Tri-State Nationals (N.J.) next weekend in Princeton.Wasatch LC

This team of 19 players from 13 different high schools across the state of Utah has 17 2014s and two 2015s on its roster (see below) and will play elite club teams from Philadelphia and Baltimore before the Tri-State tourney.

Players are flying in Sunday where they will be greeted with their first Philly cheesesteak from Pat’s or Geno’s (their choice) before staying in the dorms on campus at Chestnut Hill College. Monday the team travels to Baltimore, MD to tour the Johns Hopkins and Loyola University campuses before a scrimmage against Looney’s LC.

A three-day stay in Philadelphia will allow the team to tour local campuses such as Penn, Drexel, Widener, Haverford, Cabrini, Eastern, Villanova and others. Wasatch LC will also play Baggataway LC (Conshohocken, PA), Dukes LC (Wayne, PA) and Chick-Fil-A LC (Rockville, MD) before heading to the Tri-State Tournament.

AccessLacrosse (accesslacrosse.com) will provide a live feed Wednesday night when wasatch plays the perennial power Dukes LC.

“This trip has been two years in the making,” said Adam Eddinger, General Manager of Wasatch LC and Chestnut Hill College Assistant Coach. “As a staff we were ready last year, but it was difficult to get players committed to traveling back East.

“We built the trust with a trip to Vegas in fall 2012 and opened the eyes of some parents and players to the recruiting scene trials and tribulations. As a staff, we film and edit highlight reels from our scrimmages and tournament games. Look for some great footage coming from this week.”

Danny and Ricky Larkin, coaches of Wasatch LC, are looking forward to the opportunity.

“We are excited for this opportunity to bring our team – which is made up entirely of players from Utah – to compete against some of the top club programs in the country,” they said in a statement. “All of our players were personally hand-picked so we can showcase the top talent that Utah has to offer.

“This trip will be a great way for our players to get noticed by college coaches who wouldn’t normally come to Utah to recruit. Our club is full of talent ready to play at the college level and we are prepared to help to get Utah more credibility in the lacrosse world.”

Scrimmages in Philly will take place on campus at Chestnut Hill College, 9601 Germantown Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19118 with parking adjacent to the playing field. Wasatch LC scrimmage schedule is as follows:

Tuesday 7/9 – vs Baggataway LC 5:30-7:30pm
Wednesday 7/10 – vs Dukes LC 5:30-7:30pm
Thursday 7/11 – vs Chick-Fil-A LC 6-8pm
