Former Penn State Lacrosse Standout Chris Schiller Named to United State's Men's National Team
Nov. 9, 2009
STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - US Lacrosse announced Monday the final roster for the 2010 U.S. men's national team and 1999 Penn State graduate Chris Schiller earned a spot on the squad as a midfielder.
The training team roster of 41 was narrowed down to the Federation of International Lacrosse (FIL)-mandated size of 23 players after three fall exhibition weekends in West Point, N.Y., Annapolis, Md. and Stony Brook, N.Y. All 23 players, selected by the coaching staff, will compete in the FIL World Championships in Manchester, England from July 14-24, 2010. Since the first recognized international championship in 1967, the U.S. has won eight gold medals, most recently in 2002.
Schiller was an honorable mention All-American for Penn State in 1999 and has been a fixture in Major League Lacrosse since his graduation a decade ago. During his four years at Penn State, he helped guide the team to a 32-17 mark and the Nittany Lions ended each of those years ranked in the top 20 by the USILA.
The team's first appearance together will be at the 2010 US Lacrosse National Convention in Baltimore, Md., Jan. 15-17, followed by their first on-field competition together at the 2010 Champion Challenge at Disney's Wide World of Sports in Orlando, Fla. against Duke and Army, Jan. 30-31.
