Attackman Colton Michel, a 2015 Peninsula HS graduate, will play his junior season at UC Santa Barbara this spring after playing two seasons at NCAA D-III Colby College. The Gauchos introduced him Thursday via Instagram.
A two-time US Lacrosse All-American at Peninsula, Michel was the Bay League Offensive MVP as a senior in 2015. As a junior, he was named the league’s attackman of the year.
In two seasons at Colby, Michel scored 46 goals and recorded 23 assists. Last spring, he was named to the NESCAC All-Academic Team.
At UCSB, Michel joins two other Peninsula alums: Sophomore midfielder Kurt Landon (2016), a second-team All-Bay League midfielder as a senior, and junior defender Justin Lee (2015).
