Manhattan Jaspers Add 13 New Players to 2014 Lacrosse Roster

Noto (Jacksonville, Fla./Creekside) enters Manhattan following back-to-back 1st team All-Region selections in high school. In 2012, the midfielder was named to the Brine National All-American team after scoring 39 points and picking up 78 ground balls. He will also give the Jaspers an option at the face-off X.

Another 2012 Brine All-American will come to Riverdale for his collegiate lacrosse. Stutler (Ft. Wright, Ky./Covington Catholic) was named to Team Ohio as a junior before receiving All-State accolades as a senior.

A fellow midfielder, Garvey (Essex Falls, N.J./West Essex) was a three-time All-State honoree, earning second team recognition as a freshman, sophomore and senior. A strong athlete, he also was a first team all-conference football player.

At 6'5”, it's hard not to call Abiog (Saratoga, Calif./Bellarmine College Prep) the Jaspers biggest addition. A WCAL All-League selection as a senior, he ran a 4.39 forty 40-dash and also competed in a high school All-Star football game.

“We've added a group who brings a much needed competitive punch to our every day preparation,” said Coach Manitta, who enters his second season in Riverdale. “We're trying to change the culture around here, and it starts in practice. I'm looking forward to seeing their success on and of the field."

This group of student-athletes will join a team that loses nine seniors but returns 80 percent of their scoring from 2013.
