The Hun School boys’ lacrosse team was challenged on several occasions during its state Prep A final against Lawrenceville on Monday.
And each time the Raiders rose to the challenge. “We were confident in the guys and the game plan,” said Hun coach MV Whitlow, whose team held off the Big Red for a 10-7 victory in the state Prep A championship game that was played in Princeton. “We made a couple of halftime adjustments and with the senior leadership we have with our captains Devin Cowan and Jack Ruddy, we were confident that they were going to execute those adjustments. They’ve come a long way and their lacrosse IQs are high. They are just young student athletes of great character.”
Four, soon-to-be Hun School graduates, committed to stand-out collegiate athletic programs this week, including Eric Fleming who signed a National Letter of Intent to play basketball at The College of St. Rose. The student athletes were lauded by their families, coaches, and classmates who turned out for a ceremony in Russell Lounge before classes on Thursday. They join a group that now includes twenty-four members of the senior class.
The Hun School of Princeton is an independent, coeducational, private day and boarding college preparatory school. Student-centered, hands-on learning prepares students for the global community in which they will live and work.
