Lacrosse Greenwich trio compete in Warrior World Series
Greenwich residents Teddy Kim, Tomas Delgado and Christian Ohlemeyer had an opportunity to showcase their lacrosse skills on a global stage, as they competed in the Warrior World Series of Youth Lacrosse in Denver, Colo., recently.
The Greenwich trio played in the tournament with their Prime Time Lacrosse club team, which is based out of Cross River, N.Y. Only the top 24 teams in the world qualified to play in the Under-13 Warrior World Series of Youth Lacrosse event, which lasted three days.
Prime Time advanced to the quarterfinal-round of the tournament, after going 4-1 in pool play. The team lost to the eventual champion Team 91 Bandits in the quarterfinals.
Delgado, a rising Brunswick School eighth-grader, earned First Team All-World honors, after registering 16 goals and five assists in the tournament.
“Being named to the All-World team was a huge honor given all the great players at the tournament,” Delgado said. “When my coach told me I was selected, I thought about all the hours practicing on my own and with the team are really worth it.”
Kim, a rising eighth-grader at Greenwich Country Day School is a goalie.
“Because you only have one chance to qualify and play in the World Series, it was awesome to qualify and to play well in Denver,” Kim said. “It was also a cool chance to meet kids from all over the country and other parts of the world who love playing lacrosse.”
A defender, Ohlemeyer is also entering eighth grade at Brunswick.
“We had a great team and great coaches who helped us do our best and compete against the best,” Ohlemeyer said. “It was a great experience that will help us all be better players.”
