Springfield's Kaut Picked Up By MLL Florida Launch

 

Goaltender Austin Kaut (SHS Class 2010) was picked up this week by Major League Lacrosse’s Florida Launch after playing a season with the Boston Cannons. Kaut joins the Thompson Brothers and Casey Powell in Boca Raton, Florida as the Launch re-tool.

http://www.floridalacrossenews.com/launch-very-active-at-mll-trade-deadline/

Some of you may have seen Austin up at Halderman this summer working with SCLC goalies and at The Meltdown coaching one of our high school teams. Be sure to congratulate Austin if you see him and thank him for selflessly giving back to our youth.

Below is a brief bio of Austin’s playing career to date:

Austin was a three-year starter at Springfield High School (graduating in 2010), earning All-Delco Player of the Year honors as a senior, named an All-American and garnering all-state recognition. Austin helped the Cougars capture a league title and served twice as captain. Austin played four seasons in goal with Pennsylvania State University, he was named Defensive Player of the Year two years in a row and became the first to earn four straight nods on the All-CAA First Team. In 2013, Austin was awarded the Ensign C. Markland Kelly, Jr. Award for collegiate lacrosse's best goalie and USILA All-America First Team honors.

Austin was selected by the Boston Cannon's in the 2014 Major League Lacrosse Collegiate Draft.

2015 Alumni Recognition - Shooting Shirts

Kyle Sweeney - 2015 Campbell Alumni Award Recipient

SCLC is proud to recognize Kyle Sweeney (#7) as the 2015 Campbell Alumni Award recipient

Springfield lacrosse has a rich tradition of elite players. Every year, SCLC will honor exceptional alumni by having the entire club wear that players name and number on its shooting shirts. For our inaugural program, we recognized #22 - Greg Campbell. Because of the impact Greg had on Springfield’s most successful players, we decided to permanently refer to the “Campbell Alumni Award.” In 2015, the Campbell Alumni Award is presented to Kyle Sweeney, Springfield Class of 1999.

See the complete announcement, including exceptional quotes from his teammates, at the following link:

https://s3.amazonaws.com/files.leagueathletics.com/Text/Documents/16582/67050.pdf

We are also excited to announce that Kyle will join us for a Club practice event this summer, tentatively scheduled for Wednesday, June 24th.  More details to come.
