Goalkeeper Andrew Jenet announced that he’s transferring to the Merrimack men’s lacrosse program. Jenet is from Furman, which announced recently that it’s disbanding it’s men’s lacrosse and baseball programs due to cost-cutting measures associated with COVID-19. The Warriors also landed midfielder Kevin Rooney from Furman, who announced he’s transferring into the program last month.
“I was beyond disappointed after Furman’s lacrosse program was canceled this past spring,” Jenet wrote on social media. “But with every obstacle comes opportunity. With that being said, I’m proud to announce I’ll be continuing my academic and athletic career at Merrimack College. Thank you to all who have supported me to this point. Roll Warriors.”
Jenet played at Chaminade High School on Long Island prior to attending Furman, where he was a freshman this past season. At Chaminade, he played alongside his classmate, Liam Entenmann, who was the No. 1 goalkeeper recruit in the country and was a freshman at Notre Dame this past season.
“One of the hardest working players out there and I think he will have a great career (at Furman),” said 365Lax coach Thomas Michaelsen when he committed to Furman last year. “Great to see all of the hard work is paying off as we tell them, so this is just a great example for the others to see.”
Jenet also played club for the LI Express.
