“Today is an exciting day on campus, as we welcome ten young men to the Harvard Lacrosse family,” said Chris Wojcik, The Frisbie Family Head Coach for Harvard Men’s Lacrosse. “Our coaching staff is looking forward to greeting each player and their families this morning as they move into Harvard Yard. Our class is representative of the growth of lacrosse, as the class of 2021 is diverse geographically hailing from seven states and Canada.”
The class of 2021 joins a squad that tallied six wins in 2017, including a season-capping victory over national-ranked Yale. Harvard returns its top-12 point scorers from a year ago.
