Salesianum School (DE) junior defenseman Spenser Urban has made a verbal commitment to play Division I lacrosse at Mount St. Mary’s University.
Spenser Urban ledger:
High school: Salesianum School, Wilmington, DE
Graduation year: 2014
College choice: Mount Saint Mary’s University

Major lacrosse honors, camps and showcases: Varsity as a Freshman, 2011 and 2012 Delaware State Champion, Nike Blue Chip, Top 205 Rising Junior, UNC Team Camp All-Star.
What will you major in/study: Undecided
Why did you choose school: “I believe the Mount is a perfect fit for me. It has a strong, liberal arts academic program and I really like the small size. The D1 lacrosse program is very strong and has a challenging schedule. Finally, I think Coach (Tom) Gravante and Coach (Travis) Johnson will help me keep developing as a player.”
Outlook for your high school team: “Salesianum lost some key players, but I think we have a strong group of young players that are ready to step up and fill the open slots. We are confident that we will reach our goal of making the State Tournament and winning the State Championship.”
Thank Yous: “I would like to thank my mom and dad. Also, I would like to thank Coach (Bobby) Healy and Coach (Shawn) Plews at Salesianum for all their support. Finally, I would like to thank Coach (Jay) Motta and (Keevin) Galbraith (Team 302) and Coach (Bob) Miller (Freedom).”
