Clifford “Cliff” Kigar is an honors graduate of Olentangy High School who is currently working toward a degree in mechanical engineering at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI). A lifelong lacrosse player, Cliff Kigar is a member of the school’s Division III varsity team.

On the heels of a 10-5 regular season which placed the team fifth in the Liberty League, six RPI student athletes were named to the All-Liberty League Team. Senior attack Breanainn McNeally was named to the First Team, while Zach Lukas, Tom Feenstra, Keaton Ackermann, and JT Kelly earned Second Team honors. Additionally, David Gibbs was named as an honorable mention.

McNeally scored multiple goals in 11 of RPI’s 15 regular season contests and recorded at least five points in eight games. A three-time All-League First Team honoree, he concluded his four-year career as the school’s all-time leader in goals with 179. Lukas, a junior attack, finished the season with 43 points in 14 games and ranked sixth league-wide in points per game. Feenstra and Ackermann played midfield and defense, respectively, and earned recognition for their combined 24 turnovers, while Kelly led the team in assists with 28. Gibbs, meanwhile, started all 15 games as the team’s goaltender and stopped 146 of 264 shots on goal.
