Seven members of Conestoga’s defending state championship boys’ lacrosse team recently made their official commitments or signed National Letters of Intent to play Division I lacrosse.
Five of them signed Letters of Intent: Tanner Scott (midfielder) and Brian Dailey (long stick midfielder) signed with Duke; midfielder Kevin Rudd with Bryant; Billy Flatley (midfielder) with Georgetown; and Ben Karr (defenseman) with Ohio State. Also, John Lopes (goalie) committed to Penn and Robbie Rose (midfielder) committed to the Air Force Academy.
The five were members of the team last year that went 24-2 and claimed the Pennsylvania interscholastic Athletic association (PIAA) championship. The Pioneers finished the year ranked No.1 in the state and among the top six teams in the nation in three national polls.
“The signing day was a proud moment for the players, their families and Conestoga High School,” said coach Brian Samson. “It is very special to have seven players recruited to play Division I lacrosse.
“Their off-the-field accomplishments played a large role in their recruitment. Tanner, Brian, Kevin, John, Robbie, Billy and Ben are good students and active members of the school community in addition to being talented lacrosse players.”
