"As I was looking at some of my colleges, I realized that the academics weren't good and I almost gave up. Then one night, I started emailing some colleges who were good colleges for academics and asked if they had a spot on the team," Gerety said. "Many reached out but a lot of them were either too far or just not my liking. When I stepped on Chestnut Hill's campus, I was blown away. It felt like home. Then a few months later I went back to meet the team. Not only did those guys welcome me with open arms, but they got to know me and tell me the in's and out's of the team."
Gerety plays club lacrosse with Team Maryland.
Gerety earned All-MIAA C Conference honors last season.
"Sometimes you have to be patient in the process and always work hard in school and in lacrosse and remember that your time will come," Gerety said of his top takeaway from his recruiting process. "I would like to thank my coaches, friends, and family for never giving up on me in the process and believing that I could reach my goals."
Gerety is the fourth player reported to LaxRecords.com to have committed to Chestnut Hill College. The Indian Hill senior is the second goalie committed to the Griffins program. Jules Sorino from Seneca (N.J.) is also committed to Chestnut Hill.
