Emmett Barger '19 has been named to the 32-player roster of the US Lacrosse Under 19 Training Team. He is the third St. Anne’s-Belfield School student-athlete to be selected, following Jay Stalfort '90 and Ben O’Neil '96.
U19 Head Coach Nick Myers and his staff announced their roster following a three-day tryout weekend involving 50 players. A total of 104 players attended the initial tryout in June.
The 32 players on the training team represent high schools in 12 states, as well as 16 college programs (enrollments and verbal commitments). Barger will play at the University of Notre Dame in the upcoming academic year.
In 1988, former St. Anne’s-Belfield Boys' Varsity Lacrosse Head Coach Doug Tarring coached the US U19 team, and has served twice on team selection committees.
