Six Lacrosse Seniors Sign Division I Commitments

Posted November 18th, 2011


Six members of the St. Augustine Prep Lacrosse Team signed official letters of intent to play at Division I programs next year at a ceremony held in the Media Center on November 15.  The Hermit seniors and the schools they will be attending are: midfielders Steven Pontrello (University of North Carolina), Thomas O’Neill (Penn State University), and William McMenamin (Wagner College); goalie Joseph Gigantiello (Denver University); attack Patrick McMenamin (Wagner College), and defenseman Bryan Phillips (Drexel University).

In addition, three underclass lacrosse players have already verbally committed to Division I programs. All nine were members of the Hermits team that reached the finals of the New Jersey Private School Class A championship tournament last season.

Congratulations to all and to Prep LAX coach J.C. Valore!
