TIFFANY ON EMERY
“An offensive weapon, few are as imposing as Matt when he runs down the alley with his stick at the ready to let the shot fly.  With a renewed determination and a healthier track record recently, Matt is making a positive impression upon both teammates and coaches alike.  His overtime goal in the Blue-White scrimmage which ended the fall lacrosse season brought an explosion of joy from teammates.”
