Andrew Feinberg Named To United States Under-19 Lacrosse Team

June 30, 2008

PROVIDENCE, RI - Brown attackman Andrew Feinberg `11 (Owings Mills, MD) has been named to the United States team that will compete in the International Lacrosse Federation U-19 World Championship, beginning July 3. Feinberg scored several goals in four exhibition games for the United States' team, including two against Long Island.

The 12-team ILF U-19 World Championship is being held in British Columbia, Canada. The U.S. opens play on July 3 against the Iroquois Nationals and the championship game is slated for July 12. The U.S. has won all five ILF U-19 world championships (1988, 1992, 1996, 1999 and 2003) that have been conducted and is a perfect 29-0 all-time heading into this year's championships.

Named the 2008 New England Rookie of the Year, Feinberg was a three-time Ivy League Rookie of the Week and Brown's fourth leading scorer with 21 goals and five assists. His 21 goals are the third most for a freshman in Brown lacrosse history. Feinberg scored a season high four goals in a win over Providence, tossed-in three goals in Brown's victory over Air Force, and scored two goals against Princeton, including the game-winning goal.

Feinberg helped the Bears secure the 2008 Ivy League title with a 5-1 league mark. Brown's team posted an 11-3 record, earning the most wins at Brown since 1994. Only five Brown lacrosse teams have won more games than coach Lars Tiffany's 2008 Bears. Brown, the number one ranked team in New England, finished 13th nationally in the final USILA coaches poll, with just six teams in the nation winning more games than the Bears.
