The Merrimack men’s lacrosse program picked up a big addition in the transfer portal, adding Siena sophomore attack Tommy Rooney, who is the older brother of Jack Rooney, who announced his transfer to Merrimack last month.

Rooney was a standout at St. Dominic High School on Long Island. His senior season he scored 103 points (a school record) on 61 goals and 42 assists. He finished that season No. 3 in scoring on all of Long Island — a lacrosse hotbed — and No. 1 in scoring among private school players.

The accolade list was long for Rooney coming out of high school. He was Newsday First-Team, US Lacrosse All-American, CHSAA Attackman of the Year, CHSAA All-League, Under Armour All-American and he was a team MVP and captain.

St. Dominic is also where Merrimack head coach Mike Morgan played his high school lacrosse.
