Evan Downey enjoyed an absolutely marvelous senior season. Shoot, Evan Downey enjoyed an absolutley marvelous scholatic career.
That is if you like goals. And who doesn’t?
With 58 goals and 39 assists in 18 games – a gaudy average of 4.5points per outing – Downey, a senior out of Palmyra, led the Mid-Penn Conference in boys’ lascrosse scoring for the second straight season. Over the past two springs, Downey used his nose for the goal to accumulate a total of 101 goals and 73 assists.
But that’s not all.
Those totals propelled Downey past former teammate Will Haus, who recentlyhelped Duke to an NCAA Division One national, and into the top spot as Palmyra’s most prolific scorer ever. Downey is also recognized as the Lebanon County boys’ lacrosse’s all-time leading scorer.
Downey, who paced the Cougars to an 11-7 mark in 2013, also starred in soccer and swimming for Palmyra. Next fall, Downey is headed off to Division Three Cabrini in Radnor, where he will continue to pursue his academic and athletic careers on the collegiate level.
