BOULDER - The University of Colorado lacrosse team has signed 19 players to its first full recruiting class, head coach Ann Elliott announced Tuesday.
Rachael Banas, who is already in classes this year taking a redshirt season, was also announced, bringing the number to 20.
"I could not be more excited about our first ever recruiting class in the University of Colorado lacrosse history," Elliott said. "Our 2013 recruiting class is compiled of kids from the all over the country - East Coast, West Coast, Midwest and right here in our backyard of Colorado. This class is compiled of great athletes, who are hard-working, bring a positive attitude and are team oriented. These 20 student-athletes are excited about being a part of the great history and tradition here at CU as well as about creating their own history! This class will be the foundation of our program and I am extremely excited about what each and every one of our new Buffs brings to our program. We are so proud to welcome all of them into our Buff family!"
