World Event History project to commence

World Event History project to commence

(WILMINGTON, DE) The FIL Board is very pleased to welcome Dennis Kehoe as Project Manager of the FIL World Event History project.

This project aims to collect and record information for the respective world events: Men’s World Championship, Women’s World Cup, U19 Men’s and Women’s World Championships and the Indoor World Championship.

Participant information, player statistics, game results, world teams, will all be available on our revamped web site and will eventually be searchable by event, team, player, etc.

Dennis has an extensive background in compiling statistical histories and we are extremely fortunate that he also has an extensive background in lacrosse. In his search for documentation, Dennis will be reaching out to member countries and we hope that everyone will be as cooperative and supportive as possible.

If you have a particular interest in this project, please contact Dennis on dpkehoe@sympatico.ca

—Feffie Barnhill, FIL Vice President
