Former University of Vermont men’s lacrosse standout Trevor Wagar ’08, of Essex Junction, joined the Toronto Rock of the National Lacrosse League (NLL) for an exhibition contest on Dec. 14 against the Rochester Knighthawks at Montreal’s Bell Centre at 2 p.m.
Wagar, who’s currently a part owner and player for the Vermont Voyageurs of the Quebec Senior Lacrosse League, was selected for the game along with Jean Guy Thouin, who will play for the Knighthawks. Both players will get their opportunity to showcase their talents on Sunday in hopes of earning a spot on the roster.
Wagar played in 28 games for the Catamounts from 2007-08, registering 28 points on 20 goals and eight assists in his two years with the program. The Guelph, Ontario native finished second on the team in points and goals during his senior season, and scored eight times in a game at Holy Cross, which is tied for the most goals in a single game in program history. After graduation, Wagar was selected in the fifth round of the 2009 NLL entry draft by the San Jose Stealth.
Wagar currently teaches physical education at Milton High School, where he’s also a lacrosse and hockey coach.- Collegiate Athletic News
