CLEVELAND, Ohio – Freshman Kevin Sobey of the Cleveland State University lacrosse team was recently invited to a Team Canada U19 Evaluation Camp.
The Canadian Lacrosse Association announced Sobey as one of the student-athletes invited for the camp that will be held Oct. 25-27 in Oshawa, Ontario.
The final Team Canada U19 team will compete at the World Championship in Limerick, Ireland from July 9-18, 2020.
"We are very excited about these 67 players attending camp at the end of October," said Matt Brown, head coach of Team Canada. "Our talent pool is deeper than ever and balanced across all positions of the field. We believe that every one of these individuals brings something to the table. Our evaluation camp at the end of October is going to be highly competitive. We are excited to take the next step in our process."
Sobey competed in the British Columbia Junior Tier 1 Lacrosse League this past summer, competing in 14 games for the title-winning Delta Islanders. He won multiple silver medals with Team British Columbia and was named to the 2018 Canadian National Championship All-Tournament Team. Sobey was also a 2018 National Lacrosse Federation national champion with West Coast Starz.
