Berry Lacrosse Brothers in IsraelFormer Vikings Andy (14C) and Jim Kurila (17C) had the opportunity to showcase their lacrosse skills on a global stage this summer as participants in the World Lacrosse Championships. The brothers spent two weeks in Israel as representatives of Slovakia, birthplace of their grandparents. Both credited their Berry experience with helping them to represent their family heritage in such a high-profile way.

“If it wasn’t for the path I took in my lacrosse career, both high school and Berry, I would never have had this chance to go over there and play,” said Andy (left in photo), an aspiring paramedic who currently serves as a firefighter/EMT in Port Orange, Fla.

Jim is also in the Sunshine State, working as an aquarist at Discovery Cove Orlando. He has plans to pursue a master’s degree in marine biology focusing on shark research.
