The Triple Threat: Matty Friedman


As one of Beaver’s only seniors to play three varsity sports, Varsity Lacrosse Captain Matt Friedman ’10 has played a significant role in this year’s athletic program. He played a large defensive role for the soccer team, his leadership helped lift the varsity basketball team to a title, and his hardwork and commanding skills make him a powerful force on the lacrosse field. One of Friedman’s great additions to the lacrosse program this year was organizing and acquiring flashy warm ups for the team which have truly brought the team together. Here is an inside look at his lacrosse career at Beaver.
