Redmond, Washington — The second stop on the LXM ATS tour, the Pacific Northwest, couldn’t have been better. With perfect weather, a welcoming community, top industry sponsors and an unbelievable venue this events overall experience was purely electric from the start. Highlighted by youth through
LXM Sole is anchored by one of the most potent attack units ever assembled. The combination of Mikey Powell, Matt Alrich, John Christmas, Brandon Corp and Zack Greer brings unrivaled speed, expertise and experience. Mikey Powell (Syracuse) is widely considered to be one of the top few players ever to play the game. A ridiculous and unmatched resume in the sport actually doesn’t capture the creativity he has brought to the sport and now LXM. Brandon Corp’s (Colgate) aggressive and skillful play complements Powell’s attributes while renowned speedster and creator John Christmas (UVA) and physically dominant finisher Matt Alrich (Delaware) round out the unit in unrivaled form. Last, but far from least, is Zack Greer: All-Time NCAA Leading Goal Scorer. The Canadian lefty adds to an already-loaded unit, meaning Powell, Christmas and even Corp will bring their athleticism to the midfield at times.
What Team STX’s midfield trumps in athleticism, Team Sole’s midfield more than compensates for in savvy and expertise. LXM East has two of the great “do-it-all” middies of this generation in Chris Rotelli (UVA) and Graham Gill (Navy). Sean Lindsay (Syracuse) rounds out the first line, adding to the very same attributes Rotelli and Gill provide: skill, IQ, execution, etc… Youngsters Tom Muldoon (Brown) and JR Oreskovich (Stevens) bring an element of flash and energy to this powerful unit. To recap in brief: Rotelli, 2005 ACC Male Athlete of the Year; Gill, 2x 1st Team All-American and Midshipman legend; Lindsay, 1st Team All-American and two Nat’l Championships alongside Powell at ‘Cuse, leading the midfield in scoring; Muldoon, 3x All-IVY during the league’s hottest years; and Oreskovich, Stevens’ All-Time Leading Scorer as a midfielder.
At the “X”, Team Sole relies on 6’4” 220lb Jamison Koesterer. The former Johns Hopkins star has occasionally played offensive and defensive roles for LXM East, with timely goals and big defensive stops. At D-Middie, LXM East relies on Brendan Porter (Rutgers), a 6’4″ 220lb Big East football recruit, and Chris Ajamian (Fairfield), one of the most athletic middies ever to play in the ECAC.
On the defensive end, Team Sole is anchored by some of the most athletic cover-guys of this generation: Brett Moyer (Hofstra), Eric Martin (Salisbury) and Jerry Lambe (Georgetown). Moyer gained national recognition when he shut down LXM Teammate Mikey Powell in college in a 1v1 epic; Martin is a physically imposing left-hander known for big hits and electric play; Jerry Lambe has unmatched checking ability and is great off the ground. The defensive corp is rounded out by 6’4″ 220lb Andrew Casimir (Dowling) and 6’5″ 215lb Brian Kelly (Whittier), both of whom live in Los Angeles and have been instrumental in associating SoCal with high-level play.
In goal for Team Sole is arguably the greatest goalie ever to play for legendary Princeton coach Bill Tierney, Alex Hewit. Team Sole’s goalie for two years now, Hewit has an all-encompassing ability to command a defense and control a game from between the pipes, and fittingly has the lacrosse resume to match: 3x All-American, 3x All-IVY, Goalie of the Year, Goals Against Avg record-holder (6.45), Captain under Coach T.

Mikey Powell, a proud Upstate New York product, came to legend when he broke records and hoarded accolades during a memorable career at Syracuse University, one of lacrosse’s sacred programs. Powell was named Attackman of the Year an unprecedented four times at ‘Cuse, twice winning
