All-American Golden Bear J.T. Stirpe signs with the Syracuse Orange!
J.T Stirpe, the son of Joseph and Courtney Stirpe, signed his national letter of intent with Syracuse University on Monday, June 17, in the lobby of the Vestal High School. He accepted a scholarship to play lacrosse with the Division I ‘Cuse!

J.T., a midfielder, helped drive the Golden Bears’ lacrosse team to double NYS Class B Regional Championships, three Section IV Class B championships and a 2019 Class B Semi-Final. 

A four-year varsity member, he was selected as an All-Star for the First Team as a freshman. In tenth grade, J.T. was selected for the First Team as an All-State attackman for Section IV, Division 2. In his junior year, he was selected for the First Team once again, and this season he was crowned a Section IV All-American! This year J.T. also served as a team co-captain.

“J.T. has been a great performer for the Vestal Golden Bear lacrosse team throughout his career,” said Coach Dutkowsky. “This season he was named a Sect. IV All-American, which is the highest lacrosse honor you can receive in the section.”

Out of school, he has shared his enthusiasm for his sport as a coach for youth lacrosse, teaching children the importance of sportsmanship, discipline and being a team player. J.T. will study Business at Syracuse University in the Fall.
