Eastside Catholic (WA) sophomore midfielder Colin MacIlvennie has made a verbal commitment to play Division I lacrosse at the University of Maryland.
Colin MacIlvennie log:
High School: Eastside Catholic School
Graduation Year: 2014
College Choice: University of Maryland
Club Affiliation: Seattle Starz, West Coast Starz
Major Lacrosse Honors: Second leading scorer on the Eastside Catholic Varsity Lacrosse Team, Rookie of the Year, Under Armour Underclassmen Team West, Jake Reid’s Nike Blue Chip, Adrenaline Showcase, and Adrenaline Sonoma Shootout All-Star.
Academic Honors: First Academic Honors
What I Will Major In: Business/Marketing Management
Why Did I Choose The School?: “I chose the school because it had a welcoming atmosphere, and everyone who I met was very kind and helpful. Coach (John) Tillman was also a really great guy and I really look forward to playing for him when I get there.”
High School Team Outlook for this year: “We are currently ranked 8th in the Washington Pre-Season Lacrosse Standings, and I believe we can pull off many upsets this year. Although we are a young team, we have plenty of guys who are willing to work hard and lead our team to victory each game.”
Other Comments: My family and I would like to thank Max and Xander Ritz, Scott Hochstadt, Ira Hochstadt, Lewis Ratcliff, and Jason Bloom, for they all have made me want to become not only a better player, but a better person as well. Without them, I don’t think I would have the opportunities that have been given to me today.
