WJU Signs Six
Student-Athletes for the 2010-2011 School Year.
“Entering my second year as head coach at WJU we are trying to bring in kids with great lacrosse ability and kids of great character. We are trying to build a team that will be nationally ranked year after year. Last year we made strides in the right direction finishing 8-4. With this class I believe we are bringing in the kind of kids that will help us achieve our goals. We are very young at the defensive end of the field so we really focused our efforts on bringing in offense. We graduate three top goal scorers and I believe even though these kids are freshmen they are talented enough to step in and be successful.” Said Sothoron.
