Niskayuna High School (NY) 2015 goalie Nick Testa has made a verbal commitment to play Division I lacrosse at Villanova University.
Nick Testa log:
High School: Niskayuna High School, New York
Graduation Year: 2015
College Choice: Villanova University
Club Affiliation: Albany Power
Lacrosse Honors: Blue Chip 225 Rising Sophomore All-Star, Lehigh Valley Rising Junior All-Star, Binghamton University Tournament All-Star, NYS Class B (2013) Semi-Finalist, NYS Class A (2014) Semi-Finalist
Academic Honors: National Honors Society, Scholar Athlete
What will you major in/study? Mechanical Engineering
Why did you choose Villanova? “As soon as I stepped on campus, I knew it was the school for me. It was the perfect size and location, as well as being a gorgeous campus. The Engineering program is very strong, and Villanova is a very well respected University. Coach (Mike) Corrado and the other coaches were great, and I felt very comfortable being at Villanova.”
Thoughts on this past HS lacrosse season/outlook for next season? “We had a great run last year, making it to the State Semi-Finals, but our team goal every year is to end up in a pile as State Champions. With the amount of returning talent and chemistry we have, I believe that goal is very attainable.”
Thank You: “I would like to thank my parents who drove me to a countless number of tournaments, camps and games over the years. I’d also like to thank Coach Vorgang, Coach Delano, Coach Williams, Coach Hester and Coach McIver for helping develop me as a player, and for helping me with the recruiting process.”
