Right before Thanksgiving, Kyle Hyland of Hinsdale Central committed to the University of Notre Dame. Hyland, who grew up in Connecticut, moved to Hinsdale as a freshman. He is a face-off specialist/midfielder who also plays for the True 2016 Illinois State Team. His commitment is significant because he is one of first (if not THE first) sophomores locally (not including Illinois players attending boarding schools elsewhere) to commit to a D1 program. Here's the announcement from True Lacrosse, and TopLaxRecruits.com also published an interview with Hyland today (January 5).
Below is Hyland's highlights from this past summer.
Several local high school players did well at national tournaments over the holiday break.
First up, Alec Van de Bovenkamp, who played goalie at Hinsdale Central before transferring to Culver Academy (class of 2016), was named MVP of the 15U division championship game at NDP Lacrosse’s Dick’s Sporting Goods Tournament of Champions in Florida on December 31. He played for FCA, which defeated Madlax Nationals U15 9-2. You can watch the championship game here (you will need to create an account with LiveStream). Vande de Bovenkamp has committed to play for D1 Furman University. Here’s a clip of his highlights from Summer 2013.
Nick Singleton, a junior at Wheaton North (playing for New Wave), and Tommy Danner, a junior at St. Viator (playing for American Revolution), made the 2014/15 All Star Teams at the Adrenaline Challenge in San Diego (January 3). Below are their highlight videos from the past season/Summer.
Lastly, Matt Lowry, a sophomore midfielder for New Wave Volt, was named to the 2016/17 All Star Team.
Congrats to all the players, well done!
