Middleton boys lacrosse player Nathan Kapp recently earned all-American honors
and was named first-team all-state.
Kapp, a sophomore specialist, has played lacrosse since the third grade with the
Middleton Youth Lacrosse program. He started playing on travel teams when he was 10.
Kapp, who also received first-team all-conference honors this season, started for
Middletons varsity team in both his freshman and sophomore years. This season, Kapp
led the Cardinals in face off wins, ground balls and was named Middletons MVP.
In 2016, Kapp was the only person from Wisconsin to be invited to the Face Off
Academy's National Showcase in New Jersey. In addition, Kapp had a 4.0 grade point
average during his sophomore year and holds an overall GPA of 3.8.
