LacrosseRecruits.com says: "Chris is an example of how far the game has come out in Utah. He is a smart attackman who understands the flow of the game. We were impressed by Chris' speed and ability to dodge to his left or right hand as well."
Chris says: "I have been very lucky in my high school lax career. For example, this past spring my high school team went to the state championship, and this summer I was selected to the 205 West All-Star team. In looking for a suitable college, I tried to find the right fit between my lax ability and my academic goals. I found that it is critical to sign up with at least one of the recruiting groups [like LacrosseRecruits.com] in your freshman or sophomore year to help navigate all the NCAA and club programs around the country. Also, it is very important to build a professional video library and highlight reel for the college coaches. The coaches are all certainly focused on your lax ability, but they are also very interested in your character, your SATs and your grades."
Upcoming events: Boland will compete in High Rollers (San Diego), Sin City Showdown (Las Vegas), Adrenaline Challenge (San Diego), Best of the West (Las Vegas), 205 West (Denver) and Adrenaline Shootout (Sonoma, Calif.)
