Please join me in congratulating Aiden Carroll, Allentown Central Catholic High School, for being the 9th Stars & Stripes Alumni in the Class of 2022 to officially commit to play collegiate lacrosse. Aiden will continue his career playing NCAA Division III Lacrosse for the Aurora University Spartans in the Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference in Aurora, IL. Aiden is the 34th Stars & Stripes Lacrosse Alumni to commit to play collegiate lacrosse. Aiden joined Stars & Stripes Lacrosse in middle school as a long pole defensemen after we took a short stick out of his hands. The pole was such a natural fit with his aggressiveness , ground ball tenacity, and clearing abilities. It is fitting that the Aurora mascot is a Spartan, because Aiden battles like one on the field. Aiden is a caring teammate who listens to his coaches and upperclassmen when they provide suggestions. This approach to the game enabled Aiden to be an instrumental part in bringing the first state championship back to the Lehigh Valley this year! Brian, Wendy, and Gavin should be very proud of his academic and athletic accomplishments and we look forward to following his collegiate career with them. “Storm the Hill”, Aiden! The world awaits!
