WEST YORK- Freshman Klayton Garman, a West York grad, has had some nice success with the Lebanon Valley men's hockey team.

The 5-foot-10, 155-pound forward has scored 10 goals and picked up seven assists for 17 points for the No. 21-ranked Dutchmen who are 14-1 overall and 6-1 in the Eastern Collegiate Hockey League.

He has four power-play goals.

"Klayton came here as a lacrosse recruit," Coach Don Parsons said. "I knew of him as far as three years ago when I tried to recruit him to play for the junior hockey team I was coaching at the time. I was very pleased to get a call from Klayton late last summer asking if he could have a spot on the hockey team and be a two-sport athlete.

"He had mixed emotions and wanted to concentrate on school not thinking he could do it all."

But the coach said it hasn't been a problem.

"I'm happy to say that not only has he been an immediate impact to our team but also carries at least a 3.0 GPA," Parsons said. "He is a truly gifted player with an incredible hockey sense and offensive presence.

"I look forward to Klayton being a key component to our team in the years to come."
