|Kickapoo Senior to play lacrosse at Williams College.
April 25, 2012, 11:15AM CT
Alexander Okemah (MaaMa Kwa Cheeah) has been accepted to Williams College, Williamstown, Massachusetts. Williams College was recently ranked the #1 college in the United States by Forbes Magazine. Williams is part of the NESCAC league (New England Small College Conference) also known as the Little Ivy League.
Okemah plays for the Mukilteo Lacrosse Club and has done so since he was in the 7th grade. He is one of the captains of the team, a 4 year varsity player and plays Face-Off/Middie.
During the Fall and Summer off seasons, he also plays for the Seattle Starz Elite, Zip It Elite Team out of Las Vegas, Junior Stealth Elite and the West Coast Starz.
Since getting his first taste of lacrosse, he has feel in love with the sport and has given up football and tae kwon do to solely focus on lacrosse. No wonder why it is the fastest growing sport in NCAA history. This is evident by the growth of the youth teams with Mukilteo Lacrosse. It gives Alexander great pride knowing that lacrosse is originally a Native sport and the oldest sport played in North America.
In addition to lacrosse, Alexander is able to maintain an academic load of 3 AP classes as well as orchestra. He also contributes back to the Mukilteo Lacrosse Club by volunteering as an assistant coach for the 7/8 Silver team and giving lessons in the off season to help younger players improve.
He looks forward to the educational opportunities that Williams will provide and playing lacrosse at the collegiate level for the Ephs and Coach George McCormack. CONGRATULATIONS!
