After one more season of high school lacrosse, Matt Funkhouser will take his considerable talents to Colorado Mesa University.
The White River High senior inked a National Letter of Intent to play for the Mavericks during a recent signing ceremony at White River. He will be a part of the CMU incoming class of 2018 and eligible for the spring 2019 season.
At CMU, Funkhouser will join another local lacrosse standout, Bonney Lake High graduate Reilly Nelson. The Former Panther is currently a freshman at Colorado Mesa.
The Mavericks are on a hot streak, having won the past two conference tournament titles. CMU competes in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference, a part of NCAA Division 3. Most of the conference’s 15 institutions are in Colorado, but competition also includes two member schools in South Dakota and one each in Nebraska, Utah and New Mexico.
