“We are so excited to welcome the Class of 2020 to Tribe Lacrosse,” Fratzke said. “Not only is this class full of strong competitors, they have strong character and have already begun to show their capability to contribute within the team. The level of commitment and drive on both the field and in the weight room has been apparent to the staff and the team as a whole, and everyone is excited to watch them continue to grow this fall and into the spring.
