Nathan Carroll to Play Field Lacrosse for Adrian College
The grade 12 student, who attends Ursuline College in Chatham currently plays box lacrosse for the Wallaceburg Red Devils and played field lacrosse this past summer for the St. Clair Spirit.
“I am proud to committ to Adrian College for many reasons such as academics, lacrosse, adn the sense of being an Adrian College Bulldog,” Carroll told CKSN.
Over the past 3 months, Carroll exposed himself to NCAA recruiters by attending camps in Pennsylvania and Massachusetts where he also worked to improve his knowledge and field lacrosse skills with other NCAA players.
In seven games with the Red Devils Junior B squad this season, Carroll has a goal and 7 assists. Playing in 12 games this summer for the St. Clair Spirt field lacrosse program, Carroll finished second in team scoring with 15 goals and 8 assists.
Carroll also credited the Wallaceburg Lacrosse system for much of his success as a player,
“Growing through the Wallaceburg Lacrosse system I have had many coaches teach me the game on the floor and field,” said Carroll.
Last season, Adrian College finished with a 17-2 overall record and were the Midwest Lacrosse Conference Champions. The Bulldogs lost to the #8th ranked team in the country (Denison) 12-11 in double overtime of the NCAA National Tournament.
Carroll is the second Wallaceburg Lacrosse product to committ to an NCAA program this year, as Zach Herreweyers, who is currently playing Junior A lacrosse in Peterborough committed to play Division I field lacrosse for Loyola University. Herreweyers is also a member of the Canadian National Junior team that will compete this summer in Finland.
