Canby's Netter signs with Notre Dame de Namur
Canby—Another Canby athlete will follow their preferred spot to the next level. The most recent college signee is senior Garrett Netter, starting goalie for the Canby Cougar's lacrosse team. Netter recently signed a letter of intent to play for the Notre Dame de Namur Argonauts lacrosse team.
Notre Dame de Namur University (NDNU) is located in Belmont, California and is a part of the NCAA Division II athletics. This season, the Argonauts went 3-9 overall. Netter will continue to play the position of goalie in college. Netter was drawn to NDNU's lacrosse team after seeing how the program was run.
"I chose NDNU mainly because of the coach," Netter said to the Herald over text message, regarding head coach Thomas Hansen. "When I first met him, I knew I would like him, and after watching him coach I fell in love with his style."
Outside of lacrosse, Netter will be studying political science and secondary education.
"I chose this major because I love history and teaching, and have since I was young," Netter said.
"I am nervous about having to balance my time between school and lacrosse."
Canby's lacrosse team has had an up and down run as it battled with the Three Rivers League. The Cougars started off the season on a seven game winning streak, but have gone 3-5 in the league and sit in fourth place behind Lake Oswego, West Linn, and Lakeridge. Most recently Canby lost to West Linn 6-17 on Friday, May 11. The last game of the regular season is on the road against Lakeridge on Tuesday, May 15.
