Men's lacrosse team inks three more recruits

The Binghamton men's lacrosse team has received a national letter of intent from three more high school seniors, all of whom will join the Bearcats for their freshman season in 2004.

Matt Osborne (Waterloo, N.Y.) is a defender at Waterloo high school. Hewas one of the top 40 lacrosse players at the 2002 Western Empire State Team tryouts. He was the MVP at the recent Newark Lacrosse Tournament in the Rochester area.

"Matt's competitiveness and athleticism will serve him well as he joins a standout group of recruited defenders," head coach Ed Stephenson. "He has both speed and agility to smother offensive players, and he is equally adept in the transition from defense to offense. He will add to our athleticism and depth at the defensive end of the field.

Tom Wilmot (Rockville Centre, N.Y.) is a defender from South Side High School. He was a member of the elite Gold Medal winning Long Island Empire State Lacrosse Team last summer.

"Tom has a very different defensive style, which will be welcomed in our unit," Stephenson said. "Although he has finesse, Tom doesn't shy away from contact and physical play. This will serve him well on the defensive end of the field, as he will help to enforce the critical zone in front of our goalie. He is one of the strongest lacrosse players that I have seen in a long while."

David Streeten (Corning, N.Y.) is a midfielder from Corning East High School. He is currently a team captain and also represented his region in the 2002 Empire State Games.

"David has two advantages coming into our program, he has competed in big games throughout his high school career, and he understands the game at an advanced level," Stephenson said. "I look forward to working with him over the next four years."
