CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Sophomore attackman Daniel Eipp and incoming freshman midfielder Sean Mahon and newcomer defender Stephen Jahelka have been named to the U.S. Men's National Under 19-team roster.

The Crimson trio is among 23 players that will train to compete in the 2012 Federation of International Lacrosse (FIL) U19 Men's World Championships in Turku, Finland.
