The Westminster Schools (GA) sophomore defenseman-FO specialist Charlie Trense has made a commitment to play Division I lacrosse at the University of Notre Dame.
Charlie Trense ledger:
High School: The Westminster Schools – Atlanta, GA
Graduation Year: 2015
Position: Close D, F/O
College Choice: University of Notre Dame
Club Affiliations: Thunder Lacrosse, Atlanta Shockers, Long Island Sting
Major lacrosse honors, camps and showcases: Jake Reed’s 3d Nike Blue Chip, Maverik Showtime, All-State (2nd team), Starter on 2012 State Semi-finalist team and 2013 State Champion team
What will you major in/study? Undecided
Why did you choose ND? “I really like the coaching staff at Notre Dame and feel that it is the right fit for me. It is a great combination of top tier academics and athletics. They seem like a very tight-knit team.”
Outlook for your High School team next season? “Our goal is to win the State Championship. We’re returning most of our starters from a State Championship team, so we feel we have a good chance. Coach Souza has always preached that it’s always going to be about how we play (groundballs, face-offs, clearing, shooting, etc.) rather than about how the other team plays.”
Thank You: “First and foremost, I’d like to thank God for giving me the gift and opportunity to play lacrosse in college.
“I’d also like to thank everyone who has coached me, whether it’s been one season or several. I’d also like to thank all of my friends and teammates.
“Finally, I’d like to thank my family. My Mom, Dad, and sister have always supported me in the recruiting process and on the lacrosse field.”
