Building Blocks Lacrosse Boys 2024 Team embarked on a journey this year and often addressed this journey as the “Road to Denver”, a reference to the 2019 World Series of Youth Lacrosse Championship series that took place in Denver, Colorado this July. The series gathers the top 24 13U teams in the world to compete to be crowned the best in the world. The importance of the youth series is apparent considering the WSYL Championship Game was played in a sold-out stadium and broadcast live on ESPN2, allowing for thousands of fans to watch at home.
On Monday August 5th, 2019 at 8:30am, the final Nissan World Series of Youth Lacrosse/ Inside Lacrosse 13U World Rankings were released. The BBL Elite 2024 Boys squad was announced as #2 in the world.
“ After finishing second in the WSYL East Qualifier, BBL Elite looked to prove they were indeed a title contender and one of the top programs in the world. BBL went on an incredible run, finishing 5-0 in pool play and routing No. 8 Evolve Elite Ontario 16-3 in the Quarterfinals. BBL Elite eventually fell to Team 91 Wolfpack in the Semifinals in what would be Team 91’s narrowest margin of victory in the entire Championship Series (8-5).
