Radnor junior defenseman Mike Farnish has made a verbal commitment to play Division I lacrosse at the University of Notre Dame.
High School: Radnor
Graduation Year: 2015
College Choice: Notre Dame (ConnectLAX college profile)
Club Affiliation: NXT 2015
Major lacrosse honors: Champions Central League 2013; All Central League Second team 2013
What will you major in/study? Business Sports Management
Why did you choose school? “Notre Dame has a great sports tradition and strong academics. I love Coaches (Gerry) Byrne and (Kevin) Corrigan. I want to win a National Championship in lacrosse and playing for Notre Dame gives me a great opportunity to do so.”
Outlook for your High School team? “Radnor lost seventeen seniors, including five Division I players to graduation last year. That is a lot of talent and experience that needs to be replaced. But Coach Begier is a great coach with a great staff and we will be ready to repeat as Central League Champs and compete for a state championship.”
Other comments: “I would like to thank Coaches Begier, Sims, Corrigan and Hayes for their time and efforts on my behalf. A special shout out to my bother, Tom, who is a starting defenseman at Furman for being a great teammate and big brother.”
