HANOVER, N.H. – Dartmouth lacrosse head coach Brendan Callahan has announced the addition of 10 players to the roster as members of the Class of 2020.

“This recruiting class will be a big step forward in the development of our program,” Callahan said. “The plan for recruiting this group was to find the tough athletes and competitors. We looked for guys that would fit our ‘attack’ mentality.
