Athlete of the Week: CBA's Matt Vavonese

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) - Our latest Athlete of the Week, CBA’s Matt Vavonese has turned into a brick wall in the goal for the fourth ranked CBA Brothers lacrosse.

“I have been playing goalie since I was in third grade. I always wanted to be one because my uncle was one. I was lazy when I was young, and didn’t like to run. I said that is the spot for me, and it has clicked ever since,” Vavonese said.

Vavonese has found his home between the pipes, helping the Brothers to the league championship this season.

During the Brothers’ five-game winning streak, Vavonese is only allowing six goals per game.  For Vavonese, the goal now is to finish his senior season with a little sectional hardware.

“We are excited. We are hungry for it. None of us have ever been there.  We are looking for it. We have kind of picked it up over the last couple of games, and every second is intense now,” he said.
