Varsity lacrosse player Jake Schneider '19 has broken the team's career scoring record and become the first player in program history to eclipse 200 points. The previous career record high belonged to McLean Voelkel '15 with 186 points. Jake currently has 202 career points (121 goals, 81 assists).
"It is pretty special to both set the points record and be the first to break 200," Jake said. "There have been so many outstanding players who have come through this program that I have learned from and been humbled by, and to now be standing alone at the top in points is amazing."
Jake is no stranger to success in athletics. As a freshman, he was a member of the 2016 state championship team and scored a goal in the championship game. He was both All-Conference and All-State in his sophomore and junior years.
"Being a part of that state championship win and playing with such a special team really showed me how hard work pays off, and I have carried that along with me throughout these last three years," he said. "I am hopeful that my senior year will bring me something even more memorable!"
In addition to being the varsity lacrosse team captain this spring, Jake was the captain of the varsity soccer team that went to the state finals this past fall. He will attend Cornell University next year.
Head lacrosse coach Sandy Kapatos said, "We're extremely proud of Jake's accomplishment, which is a testament to his work ethic and dedication."
