Baltimore, Md. - Former Loyola College men's lacrosse players Jamie Hanford and Bobby Horsey have been selected to represent the U.S. at the upcoming World Indoor Lacrosse Championships. Both players have played professional indoor lacrosse for the New York Titans and Philadelphia Barrage prior to yesterday's announcement of the 33-man U.S. roster.
Hanford graduated from Loyola in 1998 as a three-time All-America defenseman. As a senior, he became Loyola's 10th- ever first-team All-America selection. Horsey graduated in 2001, garnering All-America honors his senior season as well.
The 2007 World Indoor Lacrosse Championship will take place May 14-20, at the Halifax Metro Centre in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Eight nations will compete in the Championship, including the USA, Canada, Australia, England, Ireland, Czech Republic, Scotland, and the Iroquois Nationals.
