The Eastside Catholic High School boys lacrosse program had two players give oral commitments last week to play NCAA Division I college lacrosse.
Josh Matte, a sophomore goalkeeper, has orally committed to the University of Denver. Teammate Arend Broekmate, a junior defender, gave an oral commitment to Lafayatte (Pa.) College.
Matte, who lives in Issaquah, isn’t eligible to sign a National Letter of Intent for two more years, but with Denver, he’d be joining a program that has made four consecutive trips to the NCAA Tournament. Last spring, Denver advanced to the semifinals before falling to top-ranked Syracuse.
