Britt Conde plays football and lacrosse and wrestles, but lacrosse is his favorite. That’s a good thing, since he’s heading to Ferrum College in the fall and will play lacrosse there.
Conde started playing lacrosse in third grade. He started football and wrestling in middle school (he lived in Elkton, Maryland, until 2011). He had success with all three sports, ending up a three-year varsity starter in football and captain of the wrestling team.
Lacrosse has been challenging this year, said Conde. “I played this regular season injured and recently had to get surgery,” he said. That means he won’t be playing in Sunday’s state championship game against South Kingstown. But he’s optimistic about the team’s prospects.
“I know my team has the heart and skill to bring EGHS the 3 peat,” he said.
“I picked Ferrum because I loved the area, I fell in love with the campus and the fact that it is a small private Methodist school,” said Conde. “Ferrum has a great opportunity for me to pursue my future endeavors as well as my athletic goals including a D3 national championship. They have a great lacrosse program under Coach Mark Frey.”
He’s excited to play on the college level. “I enjoy new challenges and am looking forward to a faster pace of the game as well as the ‘job’ of being a NCAA athlete.”
Conde feels a debt of gratitude toward all the coaches he’s had through the years. “Every coach I've had has been critical in developing me into a well versatile athlete and citizen. I owe all my coaches a sincere, ‘Thank you.'"
