Honored GCS student-athletes shared their thoughts: 

I would like to thank my family, friends, and all of my coaches that I have had that developed me into the player and young man  I am today. I wouldn't have made it this far without all of their support and guidance. Another thank you to Coach Al and Coach Boland for bringing me to GCS and giving me a great opportunity to become a better lacrosse player. Also Thank you to Coach Novotny and Seton Hill for giving me the opportunity to continue playing lacrosse at a great institution. -Christian Krauch

I chose to further my education and lacrosse career at the University of Maryland due to its friendly atmosphere and endless opportunities. I grew up in family in which almost everyone attended the University of Maryland and loved it, so I was almost guaranteed to love it as well, and I do; I've felt like a Terp my whole life. The welcoming environment and incredible educational programs also played a substantial role in my decision to attend this school. Of course, the unbelievable coaching staff was a big factor as to why I chose this school; having led the women’s lacrosse team to several NCAA Championships in the past. I cannot wait to officially become a Terp! -Hannah Glaros

I transferred to GCS last year going into my junior year of high school. We had moved up into the IAAM A conference that year and made it to the semi finals in playoffs. I was exposed to a very high level of high school lacrosse, playing many tough teams with very talented players. On my team, in just one season, I was able to build strong relationships with my teammates, allowing us to become close friends and very successful on the field. I am very much looking forward to this upcoming spring season to compete again with my teammates for an IAAM championship. -Cecelia Bartley
