Havelock's LaLima to play lacrosse at St. Andrews

Published: Friday, May 30, 2014 at 02:59 PM.

St. Andrews, located in Laurinburg near the South Carolina border, is about 3 1/2 hours from Havelock, which LaLima said was a big factor in picking the college.

“It’s just closer to home,” he said. “I was contacted by two schools in New York, but this is closer to home, so that’s a big plus.”

LaLima said he expected to play midfield for the Knights and he also expected to compete for significant playing time on the field.

“They said I could come up there and probably start my freshman year, have a good season, and I could go up there and play all four years I’m there,” he said.

LaLima said he was uncertain on his collegiate major but that he was looking at business, pre-law or possibly even sports medicine.

“I’m happy to be going to St. Andrews,” he said.
