Spencer Rees was a backup for 8 years. Now, the Navy men’s lacrosse goalie is seizing the moment.

That summarizes the lacrosse career of Spencer Rees, who has waited eight years for his chance to become a starting goalie.

Rees is finally getting that opportunity as a senior with the Navy men’s lacrosse program this spring, and so far he’s made the most of it. The Sykesville native is coming off an impressive performance against Bucknell when he recorded a career-high 17 saves, many of the spectacular variety since six of the shots came from within two yards of the goal.

Rees was named Patriot League Goalkeeper of the Week on Monday, an honor that also recognized his first career assist at any level.
