Shane Fox, a member of Neumann’s national champion roller hockey club, has made the Team USA squad that will compete at the 2015 International Ice Hockey Federation Inline Hockey World Championship, July 5-11, in Tampere, Finland.

 

Fox is one of seven defensemen on the 15-person roster, which also includes six forwards and two goalies. He is the only left-handed defenseman on the squad and one of just five players who made the national team for the first time.

 

From July 5-7, Team USA plays Germany, Slovakia and Canada before the start of the medal round. The U.S. earned bronze at last year’s world championship, and has medaled in five of the last six tournaments.

In April, Fox helped Neumann win its first Division I title in roller hockey. The club defeated archrival Lindenwood University, 4-3, in Independence, Missouri, to capture the crown.
  
The National Collegiate Roller Hockey Association invited 24 teams to participate in the 2015 tournament. In the games played for seeding and in the single-elimination tourney, the Knights beat Cal Poly, Rowan University, the University of Colorado, the University of Missouri at St. Louis, and UNLV. The club capped a dominant 34-1 season with its victory in the title match.

 

Fox, a native of Sicklerville, NJ, is the only team member from the tri-state area. For the full roster, click here: http://www.usahockey.com/page/show/1243851-2015-u-s-national-inline-team-roster.
