The Salisbury men’s lacrosse team has likely found their answer in goal for the remainder of the season. After three years of hard work and preparation, Connor Anderson has become the new commander of a rising Sea Gull defense.
Since taking over in goal after the first five games of the season, the senior from Canada has put up a 6-2 record while averaging only 5.43 goals per game. He also has recorded 56 saves bringing his save percentage to a .602.
“I put in three and a half years of hard work to one day hopefully start. That’s how it normally works around here, you put in your work and then start,” Anderson said. “I’ve always tried to set a good example for the younger guys, and I’ve always liked to think I brought a certain energy to the team.”
Coming into Salisbury as a freshman, Anderson knew he would have to earn his playing time in order to start for a lacrosse team that has been one of the most successful in all of the NCAA in the past 20 years.
