From Press Release
The Vassar College men’s lacrosse team, coming off its best season in program history with eight wins, announced Wednesday afternoon that head coach Marc Graham and his staff will bring in 14 players to the squad in 2017. The 14 members will enroll as the Vassar College Class of 2020.
“The incoming freshman class is a deep and talented group that will add size, speed, and skill to the program,” said Graham. “We have a couple young defenders that will push for time right away, and some dynamic scorers that can depth and potentially some points to our offense. We also have some skilled face-off guys, who along with the return of Alex Georgalas (’18), will help us drastically improve our win percentage from last season (37.4%). Our practices will be so much more competitive this fall, which will make us better every day.”
