John Danowski and the Duke Blue Devils have landed the services of Penn grad transfer Sean Lulley.
Starting his career as a midfielder, Lulley started at attack for the final three seasons with the Quakers. He was Penn’s fourth-leading scorer with 36 points off 19 goals and 17 assists during the Quakers’ 2019 in which they made a NCAA Quarterfinals appearance. He has a hat trick and dished out and assist during their overtime loss against Yale in that quarterfinal contest.
The Melville, N.Y., native led the Quakers in scoring with 30 points off 14 goals and 16 assists during the shortened 2020 season. In 2021, the Ivy League did not play but Penn did get one game in against Cabrini (DIII). Lulley had four assists in the blowout, 23-9, victory.
At Duke, Lulley joins a program that is coming off their third consecutive Championship Weekend Appearance and loses their top scorer in Michael Sowers (37G/44A), who grad transferred in from Princeton last summer. However, the Blue Devils do return two of their top attackmen in freshman phenom Brennan O’Neill (45G/10A) as well as leading midfielder Nakeie Montgomery (15G/22A) will also be back for a fifth season of college lacrosse in 2022.
The addition of Lulley to an already deep Duke offense should only make this Blue Devils’ squad even more dangerous on that end of the field next season.
Lulley is the second Penn grad transfer to find a home, doing so less than a week after his former teammate announced that he would be heading to Rutgers for his final season of college lacrosse.
