Penn State Men’s Lacrosse To Return Six Seniors For Extra Season In 2024

Six Penn State men’s lacrosse seniors will return for another year and a chance at a national title.

TJ Malone, Chris Jordan, Grant Haus, Jack Posey, Ryan Huff, and Sam Sweeney will return for the 2024 season, the team announced Friday.

Malone is coming back to Happy Valley after his best season, including 73 points, Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year honors, and All-American accolades. The attacker led the team through a strong season before it was knocked out in the Final Four of the NCAA Tournament.

Jordan, a transfer from St. Lawrence last season, scored 12 goals and recorded seven assists during his first season in Happy Valley before picking up an injury. He cemented himself as a strong player right off the bat and gained four goals and two assists in his debut in blue and white against Lafayette.

Haus, an All-Big Ten second-team designee, registered 72 ground balls and 22 turnovers throughout his Penn State career.

“When given the opportunity to compete alongside teammates that I care an awful lot about, while wearing Penn State on the front of my jersey for another year, it was without a doubt the right decision to come back,” Haus said in a release Friday.

Posey is entering his fifth season after closing out a high-performance season on defense in 2023. As the top defenseman, Posey received multiple honorable mentions and an All-Big Ten second-team designation following his 11 caused turnovers and 25 ground balls.

“It’s an honor to have the opportunity to suit up for the Blue and White. To be able to extend that privilege for an extra year is a blessing,” Posey said. “I’m excited to reinvest with my brothers and coaches for another opportunity to achieve our goals for the 2024 season.”

Huff and Sweeney will both return as long-stick midfielders. Sweeney played 16 games in 2023 with a season-high 48 ground balls.
