A pair of incoming freshmen, Brandon Gamblin and Zach Oliveri, from the men's lacrosse team were recently mentioned in a piece from Inside Lacrosse on 15 players who stood out at the ESPN Rise Games.

Ninety-six high school All-Americans participated in the Champion Challenge at the ESPN Rise Games in Orlando. The athletes were separated into four teams and faced each other in pool play, with the two top teams squaring off in the finals.

Zach Oliveri - Connetquot HS, NY 2011 - signed with UMass - goalie
