     Title: Two More Clam Commitments
Clams Franklin Reis and Tommy Harrison choose their colleges.

The fall season is typically when most Division 3 commitments occur.  And true to form, two more Clams have decided to ply their trade in the Division 3 ranks.

Clam attackman Franklin Reis from the Governor's Academy committed to Bowdoin for the '10-'11 year.  Franklin is the fourth member of this past summer's team that has decided to join the NESCAC in 2010, joining the 25 others currently playing NESCAC lacrosse*.  Franklin attended the Rutgers MVP Tournament, the Crimson Summer Classic (Harvard), and the Tri-State Summer Lacrosse Festival this past summer ('09) with the Clams, and tallied 17 goals and 6 assists during that span.

Also joining the Division 3 ranks is Clam defenseman Tommy Harrison from Kimball Union.  Tommy's commitment will take him to the NCAC (North Coast Athletic Conference) and Denison University.  Tommy was on Summer '09 Clam teams that attended the Rutgers MVP Tournament, the King of the Hill, the Tri-State Summer Lacrosse Festival, and the UMBC Shootout.  The Clams won the King of the Hill tournament and Tommy was part of a defense that held opponents to just over 3 goals per game.

Congratulation to both!
