SPARKS, Md. — The USA Fall Classic, featuring the top men’s and women’s teams from the most recent world lacrosse championships and the reigning NCAA Division I champions, will be streamed live on Lax Sports Network from Oct. 15-17.
The event at USA Lacrosse headquarters, features six teams, including the reigning gold (United States) and silver (Canada) medalists at the most recent World Lacrosse men’s and women’s championships along with the 2021 NCAA Division I champions — Boston College (women) and Virginia (men).
The U.S. men’s team will feature four players from its 2018 world championship team — faceoff athlete Trevor Baptiste, defenseman Jesse Bernhardt, attackman Rob Pannell and midfielder Tom Schreiber. It will be Schreiber’s first outing in a U.S. uniform since his dramatic last-second goal gave the U.S. a 9-8 win over Canada in the gold medal game in Israel.
The U.S. women’s team will largely be made up of players that have competed in training events this summer and includes eight members of the 2017 U.S. world championship team — Becca Block, Kristen Carr, Taylor Cummings, Megan Douty, Gussie Johns, Marie McCool, Alice Mercer and Kayla Treanor.
