When Jordan Wolf was earning all-American honors as a senior at Lower Merion High School, the Duke senior attack thought good things were in store for him.
But this good?
"I've always had high expectations," said Wolf, a candidate for national player of the year.
This weekend Wolf will attempt to lead defending national champion Duke to the ACC men's lacrosse championship at PPL Park. The Blue Devils (12-2) will face Syracuse (9-3) in one semifinal; and regular-season champion Maryland (10-2) will play Notre Dame (6-5) in the other. The championship game will be played Sunday at 1 p.m.
Duke's success has blossomed with Wolf's ascension to an elite player. He ranks fifth in ACC history in career points with 166 goals and 102 assists. This season he leads the ACC in goals (46) and points (67). He has scored goals in 55 straight games.
