Former Aliso Niguel High School star Jordyn Williams has joined Jared Ferrell, (El Toro High School, 2012), James Fleming (Servite High School, 2011), and Timothy Francis (Huntington Beach High School, 2011) on the varsity lacrosse roster at Carthage College in Kenosha, Wisc.
Ferrell, Fleming, and Francis were all impact players for coach David Neff last year and don’t be surprised if Williams, a talented and speedy defenseman/long stick middie, immediately follows in their foot steps. Williams, who will wear number 7 for the Red Men, earned third-team All County honors as an LSM last year, was a two-time Sea View League Defenseman of the Year, and set his alma mater’s record for ground balls his junior year. He is ready to be an impact player at the next level.
Ferrell, a 6-3 attacker, started all 19 games for Carthage as a freshman in 2013, finishing the season as the fifth leading scorer on the team with 50 points (35 goals and 15 assists). He was named Midwest Lacrosse Conference Player of the Week last February. Fleming was the starting goalie for all 19 games last year while compiling a 7.15 goals against average with 144 saves. Francis, a 6-2, 250-pound midfielder/attacker saw action in 18 games while notching four goals, two assists, and six ground balls.
The Red Men finished the 2013 season with a 15-4 record and lost to former Los Alamitos High School star Spencer Fuqua and the Aurora University Spartans in the MLC Championship game.
Carthage is a liberal arts college that is ranked in the top 20% nationally by U.S. News and World Report. The 80-acre campus is situated on the shores of Lake Michigan, and is about a one-hour drive from both Chicago and Milwaukee. About 2,500 full time students attend the school. The lacrosse team plays in the Midwest Lacrosse Conference.
