Downingtown East senior midfielder Nathan Wingate has committed to play Division I lacrosse at Lynchburg College.
Nathan Wingate log:
High school: Downingtown East High School
Graduation year: 2014
College choice: Lynchburg College
Club affiliation: HEADstrong
Major lacrosse honors: 2012 Tri-State Champion, 2nd Team All Ches-Mont
What will you major in/study: Business
Why did you choose school: “Lynchburg felt like the right school from the first moment I visited. The coaching staff and players there made me feel at home and I look forward to playing under Coach Koudelka and competing for a national championship each year.”
Outlook for your high school team: “We were lucky enough to only graduate 7 seniors and return a strong group of starters. Several players have really stepped up in the off season and I think we can make a strong run for the state playoffs this year.”
Other comments: “I would like to thank my Head Coach, Todd Cliggett, for helping me out so much in getting recruited, along with my other school coaches, Coaches Corrozza, Cullinan, and Karpinski for getting me to where I am today.
I would also like to thank my club coaches, Coaches Neary, Hill, and McSorley for giving me the opportunity to play for a great organization.
“And I would like to thank my mother for all the help and support she has given me in my lacrosse career and my older brother, who was the one who got me interested in lacrosse.”
