Boston, Mass. -- University of Lynchburg 2017 men's lacrosse alumnus Cole Barrett was selected in the third round of Wednesday's 2019 Supplemental Major League Lacrosse Draft by the Ohio Machine.
Barrett was one of three players taken by the Columbus, Ohio-based team and one of 28 players selected from the pool of more than 350 players registered, according to the MLL's press release.
A third-team All-American defender in 2017, Barrett helped lead the Hornets to a pair of Old Dominion Athletic Conference championships and was a key contributor on Lynchburg's 2015 NCAA Division III runner-up team.
He was All-ODAC three times, All-State twice, and All-South Region once.
The Alexandria, Va., native totaled 123 ground balls and 63 caused turnovers in his four-year career.
Barrett is the fifth Lynchburg men's lacrosse alumnus to be selected in the MLL's draft and the second this year; Aaron Murphy '16, a current Hornets assistant coach, was selected by the Denver Outlaws in the MLL's October supplemental draft.
Chad Clark '06, Ryan Cranston '08, and Joe Lisicky '13 were also drafted by MLL teams. Cranston was the only to appear in an MLL game, playing for the San Francisco Dragons.
Major League Lacrosse training camps open late this spring.
