In high school, he played for Nationals’ Assistant Coach Brian Hobart at Penn Yan Academy.
Lao-Gosney played his college ball at Lehigh University and finished his senior season with a career-high 20 goals and 26 points, which was good for third on the team. The Raymond, Maine native earned First Team All-Patriot League honors and was also an Academic All-Patriot League member for a second straight season. The Lehigh co-captain finished the season with 13 groundballs and three caused turnovers.
