Ragner To Forego Senior Season, Signed By Waterdogs

Fifth-year senior lacrosse player Wob Ragner has decided to forego his last year and pursue a professional career. After starting the season with the team, Ragner impressed early on and earned an opportunity to play at the next level with the Waterdogs Lacrosse Club of the Premier Lacrosse League.

Through the first six games of the year, Ragner has led the Cougars to an impressive 5-1 record and is demolishing competition. He has 100 total points on the season with 40 goals scored and 60 assists.

Waterdogs owner Dan Katz is excited about bringing in Ragner.

“I think Wob has an extremely good skillset and has been dominating out of conference play this year,” Katz said. “We are so excited to have him on the team for this next season and many more to come.”

Losing Ragner for the rest of this year will be a blow to the Cougars lacrosse team as he is not only a leader in points scored but in the locker room, as well. His leadership skills are crucial to the program and his intangibles will be missed.

Ragner said in a press conference held by the university earlier this week, “First of all, I want to say how thankful I am for my time at Misericordia. I have learned so many valuable lessons.

“With that being said, I know my teammates will have a great year and I couldn’t pass up the opportunity from Mr. Katz,” Ragner added. “Roll Cougs.”

Ragner has been a star for the Cougars throughout his tenure, posting over a hundred total points as a freshman before moving up the ladder to last year when he had 400 total points with 160 goals and 240 assists.

Ragner will be a great player in the PLL as he has tremendous ball skills and is constantly attacking to score and put his team in the best decision to win.

An associate of Mr. Katz who chose to remain anonymous said, “I think Ragner can take this team to the next level. We don’t want to be a bottom of the barrel program and we think with Ragner in the lineup we can really elevate our program to the next level and begin our quest for a championship. Kudos to the Cougar staff for developing this young man.”

The loss of Ragner will be tough for the Cougars but he believes they will prevail and compete for a MAC Freedom championship.
