Palos Verdes junior attack Austin Lowi committed to play lacrosse at NCAA Division I Jacksonville on Tuesday, becoming the sixth member of the current Sea Kings squad to commit. He is the first from the Class of 2017, though.
“Austin is just an unbelievably hard worker,” Palos Verdes coach Jimmy Borell said. “He’s very unselfish and extremely tough — started as a freshman and sophomore for me and never missed a game.”
Lowi tallied 39 points on 15 goals and 24 assists as a freshman, then followed that with 47 points last spring on 28 goals and 19 assists. But his toughness doesn’t end on the field.
“He won our Iron Sea King award for the hardest worker in the weight room,” Borell said, “He’s the first attackman to ever win that!”

Lowi joins Palos Verdes Class of 2016 teammates D/LSM Jarrett Jones (Georgetown), D Shane Sharp (Lafayette), M Peter Henkhaus (Marquette), G Conner Jongewaard (D-III Connecticut College) and A/M Mikey Booth (D-III Roanoke) as NCAA-bound players.
When he arrives at Jacksonville, he’ll join Westlake 2016 attack Brett Reilly and Temecula Great Oak LSM/D Jacob Yordy, who have committed to join the Dolphins next year. Senior attack Dakota Rohlin (Temecula Great Oak), junior goalie Addison Sherwood (Carlsbad) and sophomore defender Tucker Guyot (JSerra Catholic) already represent Southern California on the Jacksonville roster.
