Western Suburbs Weekly - - Look Local - By MON­TANA ARDON

THERE must be some­thing in the wa­ter, or on the field, at the Wem­b­ley Lacrosse Club.

Five play­ers from the club have been se­lected as part of the 21-man Aus­tralian 2017 Un­der-23 Men’s Lacrosse team.

Church­lands res­i­dent Joseph Delich (22) will rep­re­sent the coun­try next month in Ja­pan and South Korea, along with team­mates Kee­gan Davies, Con­ner Davies, Sa­muel Koczwara and Cameron Mcrae.

“It’s pretty ex­cit­ing; I’ve never been to South Korea,” Delich said.

“We leave on the 9th of June for Ja­pan (the 2017 JLA Friend­ship Games) then a few days later go on to Jeju Is­land in South Korea for the main tour­na­ment (2017 APLU ASPAC Cham­pi­onships).”

Three other play­ers from WA were also se­lected, in­clud­ing Su­bi­aco’s Ashby Den­nis, Wan­neroo’s De­clan Pittway and East Fre­man­tle’s Ryan Hockey. Head coach Gavin Leavy is also from the East Fre­man­tle Lacrosse Club. Delich, Koczwara and Con­ner Davies were also voted by play­ers and coach­ing staff as the team’s co-cap­tains.
