It's not every young lacrosse player who gets to be coached by an All-American in summer lacrosse camp. So for the lucky lacrosse players at this summer’s Wildcat Sports Camp, having Kevin Teresky back on Whitman’s turf field is indeed a welcome sight.

Kevin’s modesty hides the fact that this past spring he was named an All-American while playing attack at Nassau Community College (NCC). Kevin was instrumental in leading his team as the 2013 Region XV Champions, and the NJCAA National Runner-up, losing 11-15 to the mighty Onondaga Community College team, which had just won its 70th consecutive game. Kevin finished his final year at NCC with 47 goals.

“It was a good feeling when I got the news,” admitted the 2011 Whitman alumni. Kevin was red-shirted his first year at NCC because of an injury, and having just completed his final year academically, he will now move on to Molloy College to continue his studies in criminal justice and, of course, play lacrosse.

Anyone who plays lacrosse at the championship level, no mater what division, knows it’s a lot of hard, grueling work, so its not surprising to hear Kevin's answer when asked about what he wants his young lacrosse players to take away from their summer experience: “Go out there and have fun,” said the All-American. “It’s very intense at the college level, so when you can get back to just having fun, you can play your best.” Judging from the young lacrosse players on Whitman’s turf field, improving their game and having fun is just what they are doing.
