Austin Benacquisto, senior LSM at Bishop Verot, has committed to Washington & Lee University. Austin has played for numerous club teams, including Team Florida and the Mad Hatterz.  Austin is a National Merit Semifinalist with a GPA of 4.4, he intends to major in Business and Political Science at Washington and Lee. “The opportunity to play the sport I love and study at such a prestigious university is an incredible honor. I am incredibly excited to represent the great state of Florida against some of the best competition the nation has to offer. I would like to thank all the coaches who have helped shape me into the player and person I am today, from my first coach, Coach Milano to my coach for my senior year, Coach Krispinsky, and even Coach Jack, who enabled me to be the leader I am on and off the field. Finally, I would not be where I am today if it were not for my parents who were always there to support, finance, and encourage my dream to play lacrosse at the highest level.”
