Pierce played the last 19 minutes of the game, which Virginia won 15-6. While the outcome may not have been to Pierce’s liking, he has a promising college career ahead of him at one of the nation’s premier college lacrosse programs.
How big a deal is it that Pierce is playing for Johns Hopkins? Chandler High School lacrosse coach Dave Henning put it best when he said, “Seriously … goalie at Hopkins. That is a special place in the lacrosse world. It’s like being quarterback at Notre Dame. And it couldn’t happen to a better kid.” — Dan
