Los Alamitos’ Poe Commits to Concordia University

Los Alamitos boys lacrosse faceoff specialist Cade Poe has committed to the University of Concordia in Irvine. The announcement was made Saturday via the team’s Instagram account.

“I’m looking forward to good lacrosse that’s local. Concordia was always there as an option. They’re one of the first to really reach out and I went to their camp, performed well and I fit in with all their players,” Poe said.
