Clifford Kigar, an All-American lacrosse player, enrolled at the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute as a mechanical engineering major in 2015. Following a successful high school athletic career, Cliff Kigar has continued to play lacrosse for RPI.

As an RPI freshman, Kigar played 11 games as an attack, despite receiving All-American honors in high school as a midfielder. From the attack position, he scored six goals and assisted on another score. He also impacted the game by picking up six ground balls and forcing a turnover on the defensive end.

Cliff Kigar’s sophomore campaign saw a considerable increase in activity. He got his first three starts as a college player over the course of the 2017 season, during which time he logged 10 goals, including five man-up goals, and a half-dozen assists. He doubled or nearly doubled his production in key areas, picking up 13 ground balls and upping his shots on goal from 12 to 21. Expectations will be high entering the attack’s junior year, thanks in part to a pair of 2017 outings in which he scored three goals and dished an assist.
