Gilligan named one of nation's top lacrosse goalies

Tom Peace, one of our ESPNHS lacrosse experts, has been putting together lists of the top lacrosse players in the nation, sorted by position. And one of Minnesota's own has been named as one of the top goalies.

Thomas Gilligan, a senior at Benilde-St. Margaret's, was named the nation's No. 15 goalie in the Class of 2012.

Gilligan helped Benilde-St. Margaret's win its second consecutive state title this past spring, saving 16 shots in the title game as the Red Knights beat Eden Prairie by a 9-3 score. Gilligan has yet to make a college decision.
