Why did you choose school? “Lehigh University has always been my first choice because of it’s great academics and successful lacrosse program. The facilities are great.

Garret Trucksess, Jim McAfee, James Diver, Grant LaSorda and Brad Palmer are returning to lead our offense. Our defensive is anchored by Anthony Bozzeli and Ian Davis.
