Sacred Heart Preparatory High School (CA) rising senior goalie Austin Appleton has made a commitment to play Division III lacrosse at Colorado College.
Austin Appleton ledger:
High School: Sacred Heart Preparatory School, California
Graduation Year: 2015
College Choice: Colorado College (ConnectLAX college profile)
Club Affiliation: Alcatraz Outlaws
Lacrosse Honors: Gait Cup All-Star team, Maverik Showtime, King of the Hill, Adrenaline Showcase
Intended major: undecided, possibly philosophy
Why I chose college: “I chose CC because of its great academics (block system), very good D3 lacrosse program that is committed to excellence, and it great location in Colorado (close to mountains and outdoor sports).”
Outlook for HS team in 2015: “Sacred Heart Prep graduated nine seniors (six starters) and 80% of our scoring. We have an excellent returning defense and some younger contributors on offense who will step up into leadership roles. We also have a terrific coaching staff including head coach Chris Rotelli. We won our league championship last year and are the top ranked team going into 2015. It should be a good year, provided we can fill the shoes vacated on offense.”
Other schools considered: Brown, Middlebury
