CJ Vecchione – Misericordia University (Lacrosse)

Major:  Business/Marketing

Final list of colleges:  Misericordia, Bloomsburg

Reasons for choosing Misericorida:  “The reason I chose Misericordia is because they were the best school to recruit me.”

What was the progression that led you to competing in lacrosse at the collegiate level?  “I starting thinking about playing college lacrosse during the fall of 2015.”

Coach Hank Resch says:  “CJ was hampered a bit in the first half of last season with some physical issues. However, in the second half of the year, he played great lacrosse even though he was the only senior and teams were loading up against him.  CJ is an excellent athlete- strong, fast and tough- who understands the game. If CJ continues to work hard and improve his skills, he can have an excellent career at Misrecordia.”
