Ryan O’Leary will join the Tar Heels of the University of North Carolina. O’Leary, a Captain for the Eagles, has 187 career points including 96 in his 2018 campaign. This was bolstered by a 10-point performance against Forest High School in the 2018 District Championship Game, a single game school record.

He is a member of the Science National Honor Society, an officer for the Spirit Club, and was previously a member of the Spanish Club.
In thinking about their future, the teammates remarked that “being able to put pen to paper to fulfill our dreams of playing college lacrosse alongside each other means everything to us. Thank you to the Oak Hall community, coaching staff and all the players who have worn the OHS jerseys before us who put us in a position to be successful. Also, thank you to our parents and families for the efforts and sacrifices made along the way for this to happen.”
Congratulations, Eagles! 🦅
