ROCHESTER, N.Y. – Former Virginia Wesleyan University men's lacrosse player, Josh Currier, will be playing for the National Lacrosse League's Champion's Cup Saturday evening with the Rochester Knighthawks. The Champion's Cup is awarded to the winner of the NLL's Championship best-of-three series.
Currier, who graduated from VWU in 2016, was drafted in the same year to Rochester. Currier was the most prolific athlete to ever come through the Marlin men's lacrosse program, collecting All-America status in every one of his four years here. The Peterborough, Ont. native is the all-time points leader in ODAC history (353) and was named the conference's player of the year three times. In his final season, the attackman was outstanding leading all of Division III in both points per game (7.06) and goals per game (5.18).
Drafted into the NLL, Currier switched from the outdoor game to the indoor one (or box lacrosse). This season, he has been a vital to the Knighthawks attack, racking up 31 points on 17 goals and 14 assists. Perhaps his best outing came in the team's last contest, a must-win game for Rochester as they attempted to force a winner-take-all game three. Currier tied his career high in goals with four and helped on two others.
Currier and the rest of the Rochester Knighthawks will now travel back to Saskatoon, Saskatchewan to take on the Rush in the Championship Game. The contest will take place at 9:30 on Saturday.
