Hometown Heroes: Boys’ lacrosse

Hometown Heroes: boys’ lacrosse

CorrespondentJune 24, 2013 

Former Golden Hawk Frank Price (2010) has already experienced an NCAA championship – he was a reserve his freshman season when the Virginia Cavaliers won it all in lacrosse.

Price, a redshirt sophomore, appeared in just three games this season for the Cavaliers. It was his first year back after playing in two games in the 2012 season but ending his season with an injury.

PC product a bright spot: Noah Parson, formerly of Panther Creek (2012), more than excelled in his freshman season with Vassar College.

For a team that went 3-11, Parson gave the program hope in a disappointing season. He was voted as the league’s rookie of the year.

As a freshman, he led with 44 points, 31 goals and 13 assists. He started all 14 games.

He scored 18 more goals than the second-highest scorer on the team. Parson recorded five hat tricks in the 2013 season and scored a season-high five goals against Western Connecticut on March 13.

Hughes sees action: James Hughes, a freshman at Hampden-Sydney College, played in 13 games for the Tigers, recording five points, three goals and two assists. The 2012 Middle Creek graduate had three goals in seven shots, resulting in a stellar .429 shot percentage.

No longer on teams: Three former area standouts are no longer on the college teams they first played with. Holly Springs 2011 graduate Devon Lepsch won a title in his freshman year at Loyola-Maryland, but did not play for the Greyhounds this year.

Apex 2010 graduate Ross Whitehead no longer plays for the VMI Keydets, and Apex 2011 graduate Emil Weiss did not play for Michigan.
