Dispatches from Denver:
World Championship Linkage
The Lacrosse Magazine staff is out in full force at the Federation of International Lacrosse (FIL) World Championship, and we'll have constant coverage throughout the next two weeks here on LaxMagazine.com. Mainstream media also has descended on the biggest event in international lacrosse history. Here's a sampling of the coverage coming out of Denver.
Uganda's Improbable Journey
KUSA, Denver's NBC affiliate, caught up with Team Uganda, the first African team to compete in a sanctioned international lacrosse event. Uganda is comprised mostly of players who come from war-torn and impoverished communities. "They might not be rich, but they are very rich in spirit," said coach Andrew Boston, a former Delaware player who spent two years with the Peace Corps in Uganda. The Ugandan players received some tips Tuesday from members of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) club team.
