Eagle High School (ID) 2017 midfielder Zane Friedt has made a verbal commitment to play Division I lacrosse at Fairfield University.
Zane Friedt ledger:
High School: Eagle High School, Idaho
Graduation Year: 2017
College Choice: Fairfield University
Club Affiliations: Sawtooth LC., True Lacrosse
Lacrosse Honors: True National team, Jake Reed’s Nike Blue Chip summer 2014, Adrenaline Challenge 2016-2017 All-Star, Denver Shootout All-Star, Freshman varsity letter-winner
Academic Honors: 5A SIC All-Academic Honors, West Ada Honor Roll
What will you major in/study? Business/Pre-Law
Why did you choose Fairfield? “I felt at home as soon I stepped on campus. Fairfield is well known for great academics especially the Dolan School of Business. The lacrosse program is very well supported and has a lot of energy around it. I really liked Coach (Andy) Copelan and the rest of the staff and the direction they have the program moving. The team’s hard dodging style is definitely one that I feel I’ll fit into and thrive in. The brand new Rafferty Stadium is also a plus.”
Outlook for 2015 HS season? “Last year we had a really young team, especially on the offensive side of the ball. This year with our strong senior class, talented underclassmen and brand new coaching staff, hopefully we can reach our goal of being the first team from Eagle High to win an Idaho State Championship.”
Thank You: “First, I’d like to thank my parents for all the time and support they put into my successes in all aspects of life.
“I’d also like to thank Coach Andy Copelan for giving me the opportunity to play at such a high level University.
“I couldn’t have reached this point without Phil Gorman of Sawtooth LC doing everything he did for the sport in Idaho and my coach Gavin Phillips who pushes me to be better every time I see him.”
Other schools considered: University of Pennsylvania, Ohio State University
