“Sometimes the story of the World Games team selection for the US team is more about who isn’t selected,” Ghesquiere said in a statement. “While the quality of players who are not on the traveling team is staggering, [co-coach] Matty [Tsang] and I believe that our selection process has resulted in a phenomenal group of 14 athletes.
