Rising sophomore midfielder Braden Atkinson of Calvert Hall made an early college commitment this week, pledging to play his college lacrosse locally at Johns Hopkins University.

Atkinson, a member of the Class of 2016, made the Calvert Hall varsity as a freshman and scored four goals and added three assists.  He also won 63% of his faceoff attempts.

“Braden is an excellent all around midfielder who faces-off and is a very good offensive and defensive player,” said Calvert Hall coach Bryan Kelly.  “Braden is a very hard worker and is a great fit for Johns Hopkins.”
