Issaquah’s Mikey Giannopulos named to high-profile lacrosse prospects list
October 1, 2013
Following his inclusion in the Sept. 23 StudentSports.com regional high school lacrosse watch list, Issaquah junior Mikey Giannopulos was added to the online scholastic sports magazine’s Top 200 national list of NCAA prospects and players to watch in the class of 2015.
He’s the first student-athlete from Washington state to be named to the list.
Giannopulos, who platoons for the Eagles as a midfielder and a faceoff specialist, finished the 2013 season with 196 ground balls, making him the top sophomore in the state and ranking third among Division I boys players.
His 42 points (30 goals, 12 assists) ranked fourth on the Issaquah squad and helped the Eagles to a 14-6-0 record. The team took first in the King East Conference before eventually falling to state runner-up Mercer Island by a single goal in the state quarterfinals.
After being recruited by Georgetown, Giannopulos orally committed as a sophomore to play for the Hoyas. Georgetown finished the 2013 season with a 6-9 overall record, earning a berth in the Big East Conference tournament.
The Hoyas’ last trip to the NCAA Tournament was in 2007, its 11th consecutive trip to the NCAAs.
