Scott Bacigalupo

As a young goalie, your number one role model on the lacrosse field was Scott Bacigalupo (Princeton '94). As a shot stopper, he was second to none; however, he was unorthodox, throwing any part of himself or his equipment at the ball.  He was a bold defensive leader, and he played with tremendous flair. You had the chance to meet Mr. Bacigalupo in 1994, following an early season home victory for Princeton. He could not have been more friendly, humble, and encouraging.  

One of the most celebrated college lacrosse players ever, Scott Bacigalupo was a three-time first team All-American (1992, 1993, 1994) and second team All-American (1991) goalie, a four-time All Ivy League member, and the recipient of the C. Markland Kelly Award for Division I Goalie of the Year (1992, 1993, 1994) and the Raymond Enners Award for Division I Player of the Year (1994). He guided Princeton to two NCAA Division I Championships (1992, 1994), during which he was twice named tournament MVP. In 2010, he was inducted into the National Lacrosse Hall of Fame.
