To fill in some info WRT Rumble's question, below...


Per Lars' monthly news letter:

The two 5th years and most of our 4th years have decided to move forward with their next-step career plans. This is understandable as they have been emotionally and mentally preparing to depart Charlottesville and pursue professional opportunities they have diligently worked and interviewed for. But it is admittedly hard for me to grasp that we will not train again with Wade Maloney, Mitch Gordon, Michael Kraus, Luke Brugel, Milan Murray, Justin Schwenk, Theo Dol, Ryan Lamb and Griffin Thompson.

Jared Conners will return, joining us in 2020-2021 as he pursues a Master’s degree in the Curry School of Education. The only other man of the class is Dox Aitken. As it has been well publicized, Dox committed to playing football at Villanova for the fall of 2020. This is his next passion, his dream. There are obviously a lot of moving parts right now with everyone’s life, and we will respect the wishes of each as they make their choices.

Yes, the transfer portal is becoming a more influential factor nationally with the acquisition of talent. Many fantastic lacrosse players currently populate it. We will scratch the surface at first, discovering who some of these men are and if their educational objectives match up with our Master degree programs and offerings. But we are fortunate to have such a talented, driven group of men now on our team, and we will not make quick decisions with supplementing our team without ensuring that the addition(s) allow us to preserve the culture we have created.
