Hawaii Lacrosse Invitational: Wimmer Solutions Hopes for Repeat
John Jiloty of Inside Lacrosse Magazine recognizes the efforts of Team Jesse and our sponsor Wimmer Solutions. Wimmer Solutions is perennially one of the top two teams at the Hawaii Invitational, and this year should be no different. They will be without their arch-rival Crease Monkeys, who aren't bringing a team to the islands, but that doesn't mean Wimmer won't have another stacked lineup. And as we learned on Tuesday, it's a good thing since this new Dirty Lax team looks dangerous.
Wimmer CEO Matt Sauri's goal with his teams is always to include not just great players, but good team guys and dynamic community spokemen. He says he's looking for good sportsmen as much as all-stars, and it's proven to be a successful strategy.
Wimmer has also prided itself on their Elite and Master's Teams helping each other out in Hawaii, with some of the Elite guys helping to coach the Master's squad, and a few of the Masters players getting some burn with the Elite group.
Here's a look at Wimmer's group for this year's Hawaii Lacrosse Invitational, which starts Friday at Kapiolani Park in Honolulu. Inside Lacrosse regrettably won't be making the trip this year but we look forward to making a triumphant comeback in 2012.
Good to see a few new additions to the Wimmer roster: Ben Rubeor, Connor Martin, John Galloway and Kyle Menendez joining what is a great tradition.
And here's to Sauri and goalie Kevin Mincio resting those weary legs in the sand in Hawaii. After biking across the country to raise money for Team Jesse, those guys deserve some R&R.
