Marquette Introduces Redondo's Williamson With Incoming Class

Marquette University introduced its class of 11 incoming freshmen recently, including attackman Josh Williamson of Redondo Union.

Williamson, a four-year varsity starter for the Sea Hawks, was named first-team All-Bay League last spring. He finished his high school career with 89 goals and 113 assists.

Last year, in just its third season of NCAA Division I lacrosse, Marquette went 10-6 — including 3-2 in the Big East — and lost to Georgetown 12-8 in the semifinals of the conference tournament. But the teams lists eight starters among the players returning, and coach Joe Amplo said, “This upcoming senior group is going to have the most experience I’ve ever been around.”

There are 18 seniors playing their final seasons, meaning this incoming freshman class — along with the 14 players committed from the Class of 2016, will be counted on to contribute in the near future.

That 2016 class of commitments includes midfielder Peter Henkhaus of Palos Verdes and attackman Ryan Fazio of San Diego’s Cathedral Catholic. Cathedral alum Brett Molina joins Williamson in the incoming freshman class.
