Four players have been added to the U.S. Men’s National Team roster for the USA Lacrosse Fall Classic this weekend in Sparks, Md.
Attackmen Chris Aslanian (Cannons LC/Hobart ’19) and Xander Dickson (Atlas LC/Virginia ’23), long pole Ryan McNulty (Bishop Shanahan, Chaos LC/Loyola ’22) and midfielder Jeff Trainor (Cannons LC/UMass ’21) will make their national team debut Friday night when the U.S. hosts rival Canada in a World Lacrosse Men’s Championship gold medal game rematch at Tierney Field.
