D3 Lacrosse Notebook: Bates Earns Top Spot On ESPN’s SportsCenter Top 10
By Matt Noonan (@MattNoonan11)
In case you missed it: Bates College men’s lacrosse earned some national attention last night by earning the top spot on ESPN’s Top 10 on SportsCenter.
Bates earned the highest spot in the well-known Top 10 highlight package, thanks to a pair of behind the back looks from Brendan Mullally and Matt Chlastawa. The duo connected for an extremely impressive goal from the nearside during the Bobcats’ 21-8 win over Keene State.
Following the conclusion of yesterday’s contest, Chlastawa told the Sun Journal, “It’s nice to mess around out there and have some fun with it. That’s why we’re out here, because we love the sport.”
