Michael Pfeffer ’03 Named to Israel’s National Lacrosse Team

The Israel Lacrosse Association has announced its travel roster that will compete at the Federation of International Lacrosse (FIL) World Championships this July in Denver, Colorado. Park School graduate Michael Pfeffer ’03 has been named an attackman on the squad.

The roster was selected following a six-month tryout process, including national team tryouts, several exhibition games last summer and fall, and an extensive interview process.

“It was terribly difficult to make our final roster decisions, as we’ve been fortunate to have so many talented athletes who are strongly committed to our program and what we’re trying to achieve,” said head coach Bill Beroza. “We’ve had so many unique factors in shaping what we believe to be a very strong team, which will truly and wholly represent our country, our program, and our people on the world stage in Colorado.”

A record 38 nations are expected to participate in the World Championships.

Each player will be competing in honor of a charity of his choosing. A portion of the national team’s general fundraising efforts has been committed to each charity.
