CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – Virginia men’s lacrosse head coach Lars Tiffany announced the addition of graduate transfer Thomas McConvey on Thursday (June 30).

McConvey (Toronto, Ontario) comes to Virginia from the University of Vermont, where he was one of the best players in program history as a midfielder. He was named the America East’s Offensive Player of the Year and a Third Team All-American according to Inside Lacrosse after setting a UVM single-season record 60 goals in addition to his 14 assists in 2022.

“We are grateful to have Thomas pursuing his master’s degree in Accounting here in Charlottesville,” said Tiffany. “The success Chris Feifs and his staff have realized at the University of Vermont is due to hard work, their acquisition of exceptional talent and the development of their student-athletes. Thomas is a prime example of such. We at UVA will now benefit from the many years – both in the box and on the field – that Thomas has poured into becoming an elite offensive lacrosse player. We plan to employ Thomas as a midfielder, the same position he played at UVM.”

McConvey is set to begin training with the program in the fall of 2022.
