Brown Welcomes 13 Newcomers for 2011-2012

PROVIDENCE, RI - Brown University head coach Keely McDonald '00 has announced the addition of 13 talented newcomers, set to join the Bears this fall. The 12 members of the Class of 2015 and one member of the Class of 2012, nine of whom were high school All-Americans, represent nine different states with three players from California and two each from Connecticut and Pennsylvania. Also represented are Illinois, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Virginia.

"This group adds crucial depth and exciting athleticism to the team," said McDonald. "They are a diverse, aggressive and talented class who will make an immediate impact this year and be powerful future leaders for Brown Lacrosse. Our first-players are high-level student-athletes from winning high school programs. At our first few practices of the year, it has been interesting watching them mesh with the returners and work to make a name for themselves at the college level."
