On Wednesday, April 21 at 7:30 p.m. in Van Andel Soccer Stadium, the Hope College men’s lacrosse team will pay tribute to its four graduating seniors. Since few fans are allowed at the event to recognize these student-athletes’ careers, head coach Michael Schanhals honors these seniors here.
Adam Bell — Hometown: Lake Orion, Michigan (Oxford HS); Major: Business
Adam has worked hard to serve our team, no matter what is asked of him. He routinely comes into games under the most difficult circumstances and he excels under this pressure. He has been resilient, and an excellent leader for our program. He has accepted a job with Coyote Logistics in Detroit.
Luke Elder — Hometown: Grand Rapids, Michigan (East Grand Rapids HS); Majors: Communication and Studio Art
Luke has been an excellent leader and captain for us. He has excelled on the field, in the classroom, and as a teammate. He will pursue graduate studies in Integrated Marketing Communications next year.
Peter Reynolds — Hometown: Holland, Michigan (Black River HS); Majors: Communication and English
Our team loves Peter. He has done an excellent job serving our program, and is an entertaining teammate. He has regularly battled through health issues to help our program. He has accepted a job with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources, and his future plans include being the first diabetic to wrestle a grizzly bear and win.
Colton Warren — Hometown: Hudsonville, Michigan (Hudsonville HS); Major: Comprehensive Education K-8
Colton has thrived both on and off the field, and he has been an outstanding teammate. Colton’s energy and grin are infectious and he routinely makes everyone’s day a little better. He will be interviewing for jobs in West Michigan.
