Zack Lombardo, a 2021 graduate at Middletown High School, will continue his athletic and academic career at Western Connecticut State University.
Lombardo is coming off an All-State and All-Conference fall, where he helped captain the Blue Dragons to an 8-0-1 record in which Middletown outscored their opponents 37-3. Lombardo led the team with 16 points (9 goals).
“My favorite soccer memory at MHS was sophomore year when we made it to states for the first time in three years and we’re ranked last and upset #6 East Lyme in a rainy 3-2 win,” recalled Lombardo, who also played club soccer.
He was also part of the very successful Ultimate Frisbee team at MHS that won championship in 2019 and 2021. Outside of athletics, he was part of the school’s news network.
Lombardo will join a soccer squad in Danbury, Connecticut that plays in the Little East Conference. The team will be ready to get back on the field after having competition cancelled last fall.
“I chose West Conn because my dad played there and I love the coaches and the people I have met so far,” stated Lombardo, “I’m excited to see the competition and to ultimately win an LEC title.”
