Montreat - The men's lacrosse team continues to add talent and depth to their 2016-2017 roster as midfielder/attackman Noah Robertson has committed to join the Cavaliers this fall. "I'm really excited about it. I think it's going to be a great experience. I'll learn a lot and have a lot of fun, " said Robertson of his anticipated arrival on campus. Robertson, who intends to major in Worship Arts, played his high school lacrosse at John T. Hoggard in Wilmington and also gained a year of valuable lacrosse experience at Asbury University.
"Noah's heart for ministry and his drive to contribute positively to whatever organization of which he is part, in combination with his ability on the field, make him a strong addition to this year's incoming class", said Head Coach Will McMinn.
Montreat - John Ferris will arrive in Montreat for the upcoming 2016-2017 academic year and will join the men's lacrosse team on offense. The veteran attackman previously played collegiately at Liberty University, an MCLA DI power, and is a former teammate of Cavs' assistant coach Ethan Kamholtz. He's also gained recent experience on the sidelines as a coach in North Kingstown, Rhode Island. Ferris played his high school lacrosse for the Bishop Hendricken Hawks where he was a prolific scorer for the state champions.
"John's maturity and drive, as well as his vision and leadership on the field, are going to play a significant role in moving our offensive capabilities up three or four notches," Coach Will McMinn said in describing the 6'1" attackman.
Montreat - Eastern Almanace (Mebane, NC) goalie Josh Marin will join the defensive ranks of the Montreat men's lacrosse team this fall. He will add to a growing number of recruits that are bolstering the young and rapidly improving squad. Marin yielded a meager 6.3 goals per outing this spring for Eastern Almanace and will bring depth to a strong goalie unit when he arrives on campus.
"Josh is a motivated, athletic goalie who is exciting to watch, and has the confidence to affect the outcome of games. He is a man of character, who has a work ethic and commitment that are second to none. He is a team player who is an excellent addition to our roster for next season," said Coach Will McMinn of Marin.
