Mary Institute and Saint Louis Country Day School (MICDS) of Missouri rising sophomore midfielder Harry Wellford has made a verbal commitment to play Division I lacrosse at the University of Virginia.
Harry Wellford ledger:
High school: MICDS, MO
Year of Graduation: Class of 2017
College choice: University of Virginia (ConnectLAX college profile)
Club affiliations: 3d Colorado, 3D National, Project Missouri, West Coast Starz
Lacrosse honors: 1st team all conference, 1st team All-State, Nike Jake Reed Blue Chip, Adrenaline BlackCard
Academic honors: 1st Honors student
Intended major: Either Business or Pre-Med
Why did you choose school? “I chose UVA because of the great academics, the opportunity to play lacrosse at the highest level (ACC), and the coolest lacrosse setting for players and student fans in the country. The final factor was the opportunity to play for Dom Starsia, the winningest college lacrosse coach in history and a great person.”
Looking back at 2014 season and looking ahead to 2015: “This past high school lacrosse season was amazing! Our team was so close it worked like a family. Everyone contributed in the success of our season from the goalies to the attack. We ended up winning the state and finished the year ranked top 10 in the Midwest and top 50 in the country. This next season should be very successful; we return most of our starters and the upcoming seniors are great leaders.”
Thank you: “I would like to thank my family, friends, team, and coaches. I would like to thank my coaches especially, coach Kay, coach Munro, coach Herman, coach Savage, and coach Z.”
Other schools considered: Duke, Princeton, Michigan, Ohio State, Brown, Georgetown, and Notre Dame
