Barry, Bettencourt give lax commitments

The Laxachusetts club lacrosse team announced the verbal commitments for two of its players last week.

Defenseman Jon Barry committed to Providence while midfielder Teddy Bettencourt is headed to Michigan. Here's a little on each of the players:

Jon Barry, '14 D, Thayer Academy -- Also a hockey standout at Thayer under Tony Amonte, Barry was converted from middie to defense on the lacrosse field a year ago.

Teddy Bettencourt, '15 M, Governor's Academy -- Was a part of the Gov’s ISL championship football team and is widely regarded as one of the fastest 2015 middies in the country. He was selected a Maverick Showtime All-Star this past summer as well as starring for the Laxachusetts AA team at the Baltimore Kickoff, The Baltimore Crab Feast and the NSCLA championships.
