St. Laurence

Town: Oak Forest

Sport: Lacrosse

College: Cornell College

“Every student-athlete works four years hoping to have a successful senior season. Obviously to have it end this way has been devastating. 

“Personally, I feel lucky, though, because I get to continue my lacrosse career at Cornell College. Coming off a successful senior football season with a Prep Bowl championship, it’s crazy to think that I won’t be able to strive for the same success during the lacrosse season. 

“I truly feel for all the seniors whose careers ended so suddenly without warning. It’s all the more difficult because we have a very tight-knit, senior-heavy team this year. We were hoping for a lot of success. 

“St. Laurence has maintained a positive mindset with the athletes providing resources like our strength and conditioning staff working with the athletes online and team meetings with our coaches via Zoom, so that has helped.

“I am grateful for my time in the St. Laurence lacrosse and football programs, and all the good times I’ve spent with my teammates and coaches on and off the field.

“Most of all, I’m thankful that my family has remained healthy during these tough times.”
