HANOVER, N.H. — Dartmouth men’s lacrosse freshmen Emmett Paradine and Max LaTorre are off to fast starts in their rookie seasons, and it’s getting noticed, as Inside Lacrosse featured both in its early season Freshman Impact Rankings released last week. Paradine came in 13th while LaTorre was 20th.
Two of the five Ivy League rookies to make Inside Lacrosse’s list are from Dartmouth. Harvard also had two, while Cornell placed one on the list.
LaTorre has played a key role on the defensive end of the field, playing in all seven games while posting 10 groundballs and eight caused turnovers (which is second on the Big Green). He had two groundballs and three caused turnovers in a 17-6 win over Holy Cross, which earned him Ivy League Rookie of the Week honor. Meanwhile, Paradine currently stands second on Dartmouth with 21 points via 14 goals (third on the Big Green) and seven assists (second). A midfielder, Paradine recorded four goals and an assist against Siena to win his first Rookie of the Week honor, then won it again after 10 points (seven goals, three assists) at Hobart. Paradine became the first rookie in Division I men’s lacrosse to post double-figure points in a game this season.
Following a thrilling 10-9 overtime win over Harvard, Dartmouth returns to action on Saturday at No. 5 Cornell. Opening faceoff is set for 12 p.m. on ESPN+.
