Senior midfielder Peyton Garrett, a 2014 graduate of San Clemente HS, was named one of four team captains for the High Point Panthers’ 2018 season, head coach John Torpey announced.
Garrett, a 2014 US Lacrosse All-American and three-time South Coast League Offensive MVP at San Clemente, joins fellow seniors Jason Ashwood, Zach Tuell and Keegan O’Connor as captains.
“These four young men exemplify all of the qualities of a great leader, both on and off the field,” Torpey said in a news release. “It has been amazing to see how all four have taken different paths to get to this honor and the impact they have had on their teammates and this university over the past four years. The staff and I could not be more excited knowing that they will be leading a motivated group of individuals for the 2018 season. This group of four joins a very special line of past captains who have helped create and live by the standards of our culture.”
A political science major, Peyton Garrett has scored 24 points in his High Point career — 14 goals and 10 assists — while playing on both sides of the Purple & White’s midfield. As a junior, he battled injury but still produced four goals, five assists and eight ground balls in 11 games for the Panthers, including a two-goal, one-assist performance in the season finale against Air Force.
AS a sophomore in 2015, Garrett appeared in all 15 games and scored 12 points (8g, 4a) and collected 12 ground balls. He played in eight games as a freshman, recording two goals and one assist.
