Matthew Hahn ledger:

Major lacrosse honors, All-Star teams, Camps, Showcases: Jake Reed’s Nike Blue Chip, Naval Academy Camp All-Star, and Varsity as a sophomore
Academic honors: Headmaster’s List, and Dean’s List
What will you major in/study? Either Business Management or Economics
Why did you choose the school? “I chose the Air Force Academy because I felt most comfortable there. The school offers an outstanding education, and I will become a commissioned officer in the United States Air Force. On top of that, it holds a great reputation and has a proud tradition of excellence.”
What are your thoughts on this past HS lacrosse season? “This season we started off great with big wins over Kent-Denver, Exeter, and Bridgeton. Then in the middle of the season we stumbled against an underestimated Choate team. From there, the season went up and down with more big wins over Hotchkiss and Loomis but also tough losses to Westminster, Brunswick, Trinity-Pawling, Taft, Salisbury, and Deerfield.
Thank You: “I would like to thank my Mom, Dad, and brother for everything they’ve done for me since I started playing. Also, I want to thank AJ and Austin Rocco for the help they’ve provided these past two years. Thank you to the rest of my teammates throughout the years specifically: Will White, Nolan Callahan, Larsen Bidstrup, Pearse and Conor MacEneaney, Will Thomasco, and Joe Redfearn. Thank you to Coach Seremet and Wilson for giving me this amazing opportunity. Thank you to all the coaching and guidance I’ve received over the years specifically from Coach Flanagan, Jenkins, Munro, Rowley, and Kendall. Finally, thank you to everyone else whose been there through out the years specifically, Browchuk, Corey, Kincade, Trump, Rooney, Manny, Imperator, and Nick.”
Other schools considered: Army, Navy, Michigan, Bucknell, Brown, Merchant Marine Academy
