Moorestown High (N.J.) senior attackman Kyle Engel has made a commitment to play Division III lacrosse at Washington and Lee.
Engel, who plays club lacrosse for LB3, had 27 goals and 24 assists last year for the Quakers, who went 9-8.
He plans to major in Business at Washngton and Lee, located in Lexington, Va. Last year the Generals went 11-6 under coach Gene McCabe.
“I wanted a school that would challenge me both academically and athletically,” said Engel. “When I did my visit over the summer and met with the coaching staff and a few players on the team, I knew it was a perfect fit.
“I wanted a small school and it’s the only liberal arts school with an accredited business school.”
Washington and Lee has enjoyed much success in recent years. In 2009, the Generals went 16-4 and reached the second round of the NCAA tournament.
Engel expects Moorestown to be a legitimate New Jersey power this year.
“We have nine kids already committed to colleges,” he said. “We have a strong mixture of seniors and juniors. We want to win a state championship; and this is the year to do it. Everybody on the team has the work ethic.”
