"Steve has been playing the best lacrosse of his three-year career," said UMass Dartmouth Head Coach Kevin Mahoney. "He is getting smarter, making excellent decisions, and has played at a consistent level all year. Steve works hard every day in practice and is stepping up when we need him. I am excited about his progress, and even more excited that we have him for the next two years. "
The Corsairs are 6-0 this season and will return to action Tuesday evening at Connecticut College.
