Eden Prairie's Quentin Matsui, Minnesota's Mr. Lacrosse, is among the 50 players who have advanced to the second round of tryouts for the 2020 U.S. men’s U19 team.

The second round of tryouts will be held July 12-14 at U.S. Lacrosse. Approximately 30 players from that tryout session will be named to the training team that will compete in events leading up to next summer’s World Lacrosse championship in Limerick, Ireland (July 9-18, 2020).

The United States is the only nation to have won the World Lacrosse Men’s U19 Championship, having rallied to beat Canada 13-12 in 2016 on Ryan Conrad’s game-winning goal with just eight seconds remaining. That was the eighth straight world championship for the U.S., which also won gold medals in 1988, 1992, 1996, 1999, 2003, 2008 and 2012.
