MLAX Senior Reflections: Salvatore Vitale

April 10, 2016

The Marquette University men's lacrosse team boasts the largest senior class in all of NCAA Division I, with five fifth-year seniors included among the first 19 four-year players in program history. Members of the senior class took some time to reflect on their careers in Milwaukee and the program they helped build from the ground up.

1. What is your proudest moment as a Marquette lacrosse player?
SV: Winning our first game at Air Force Freshman year. Showing the lacrosse community what we are capable of.

2. What is your most memorable experience with the team?
SV: Our team trip down to Disney where we practiced and spent time in an unforgettable way.

3. What’s the best advice you could offer future Marquette lacrosse players?
SV: Communication is essential. Make sure to form strong relationships early in your career.

4. What has motivated you?
SV: Always trying to stay true to myself in a world that is constantly changing around me.

5. Describe how you felt during your very first practice or team activity.
SV: Very nervous and exciting. I was humbled from the very start.

6. It’s still in the program’s infancy, but do you feel a rivalry developing with any opponents you have played?
SV: I believe that we have created a rivalry with Georgetown.

7. How do you think you’ve changed as a player or person over your career at Marquette?
SV: I came into Marquette as a boy who was not sure who he was. Now I am leaving as a man who knows exactly who he is.

8. What have you learned that you will take with you as you move on from MU?
SV: Relationships are essential. If you have weak relationships, you will have poor outcomes. Create strong relationships early.
