Jeff Zywicki still not sure about Team Canada snub, Jim Moss heading to space, lacrosse in Kabul, plus the links
Jeff Zywicki’s absence when Team Canada staff named their final-30 in the country’s audtion for a spot on the defending World Lacrosse Champion’s roster was by far the biggest omission in the selection process.
Zywicki, who of course was named the ‘06 tournament’s top attacker in addition to landing a selection on the All-World Team, almost four months after being snubbed, is still not sure why he won’t be wearing the red-and-white come July, when the Canucks travel to Manchester, England to defend their gold.
“I’m not 100 percent sure why,” Zywicki told The Everett Herald. “I at least expected to make that top 30 (players) that they’re down to now.
“It was pretty disappointing and pretty tough to take. I’ve spent some time to try and find a reason why.”
Since last October’s national team tryout, Zywicki has been a major reason why the Washington Stealth currently sit at the top of league standings, the cut-Canadian also currently leading the NLL in scoring with 26-points.
At this time last year the Stealth sat 1-3, last in the West, Zywicki six points behind his current 2010 total.
