Duxbury's Haffey commits to Amherst

Duxbury attackman Kane Haffey has committed to Amherst College, joining its 2012 lacrosse recruiting class.

The 2011 graduate led the Dragons to their eighth MIAA state title in the last decade in June and will attend Phillips Exeter Academy in the fall for a postgraduate year.

Haffey was an All-American and an ESPN Boston All-State First-Teamer in his senior season after scoring 43 goals with 18 assists.

"When I was on campus, it was just a great fit," Haffey said. "Academics were always my top priority and it's one of the top Liberal arts colleges in the country. Then, meeting Coach [Jon Thompson] and seeing the facilities, I fell in love with it."

Haffey was also a quarterback on Duxbury's Division 2A Super Bowl championship football squad as well as its hockey team.
