Lax Alumni Leave Their Mark

With all the exciting lacrosse action on-campus, we would be remiss to not mention the admirable efforts of Roxbury Latin lacrosse alumni who are leaving their mark outside of alma mater's walls this season. 

Robert Shaw '14

As Harvard's junior goalie, Robert was recently named Ivy League Player of the Week for his performance against Yale University. This accomplishment marked the first weekly honor this year for the Crimson. The contest pitted Robert and fellow RL alumnus/current teammate Chris Rota '16 against freshman Will Weitzel '16 and his Yale University Bulldogs. 

Will Weitzel '16

Will has experienced an encouraging year playing for Yale's Defense. In addition to starting for the team, he has helped lead the Bulldogs to the an Ivy League title. He has now been featured in interviews for and the New England Lacrosse Journal  for his steady role as a first year player. His recent inerviews honed in on Will's growth and differences between high school and collegiate Lacrosse. He also suggests the preparation with which RL provided him for the next level: "I think RL prepared me pretty well for this. The biggest challenge is time management, especially going from the fall to the spring. The transformation from the fall to the spring is pretty drastic." 

Sean Lowrie '15

Further south, Sean, a sophomore, has experienced a rising role for Duke University. The second year midfielder has now started in 2 games and played in all 17 of the team's matches. His outstanding work has notched him 11 goals and 11 assists on the season. He hit his stride in a recent playoff game against Johns Hopkins University in which he tallied 3 goals and 1 assist. His performance helped the Blue Devils surpass its opponent 19-6 in this year's opening round of the NCAA tournament.
