Delbarton’s Kirst Headed to Ivy League

After a breakout junior season with a career-best 66 goals, Delbarton’s top returning goal scorer has committed to Cornell University.

Kirst was one of New Jersey’s most dynamic goal scorers for the entirety of 2019 — only Manasquan star and Penn State commit Canyon Birch had more goals than Kirst last year.

Watch JSZ’s highlight reel of C.J. Kirst:

He scored hat tricks in 12 different games and shined with a seven-goal game against Summit and his six-goal explosion against Don Bosco Prep powered the Green Wave to yet another Non-Public A state title.

Kirst is far from the first New Jersey player to join Cornell University’s lax squad. He’ll join Class of 2019 Under Armour All-Americans Michael Long (Delbarton) and Aiden Blake (Haddonfield) as Garden State players on the team.
