On Sunday, May 27, the Wesleyan men's lacrosse team defeated Salisbury University 8-6 in the Division III National Championship game, and former Pelican Zack Zavalick '16 was a major part of the team's success.
Zack serves as the team's face-off specialist and won eight face-offs in the game while also scooping up five ground balls.
Bill Lee, head coach of the Loomis boys varsity lacrosse team, and members of the Loomis team attended the game at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass., to cheer on Zack.
The Glastonbury, Conn., native played in every game for Wesleyan this season, winning just under 60 percent of the 380 faceoffs he took. Zack also scored two goals this season, recorded three assists, and scooped up an impressive 139 ground balls during his sophomore campaign.
While at Loomis, Zack also served as a face-off specialist and was a shutdown defensive midfielder for the Pelicans. He captained the team in his senior year.
