  • Mac verballed to Sacred Heart for lacrosse 
  • Others are high academic players from 1-AA to D3 
  • Underclassmen: 
  • McClain has many offers, including Rutgers, Penn State, Syracuse Georgia, Boston College, and Michigan 
  • There is talent, but it is unproven 

Coach’s Comments: 

“Top to bottom, this is the most athletic team we have had. But we’re inexperienced and a lot of spots must be filled. From August 27 until the end of the season, I expect a lot of improvement.” – Head Coach Bill Fitzgerald
