Coach Bailey: 2020 Reid Bartosch #14 Midfield, Captain Varsity career: Reid does everything on the field we ask and more, we finally got to the point in our program to be able to utilize his ability best without exhausting him by halftime!

Coach Keating: #14 Reid Bartosch - sometimes you were asked to do too much too soon, but it just seemed like you were built to take that on - thank you for giving what you could.
Coach O’Brien: One of my favorite persons. I like him as an athlete, a student, but most of all as a human being. I trusted Reid to speak with my own child under a very trying circumstance. He brought Connor through a time that was tough. I’ll always have his back. He is tough, gritty, and a true man.
Coach Wolcott: I never told him this but I had a nickname for him, NAILS!!! Because he was as tough as NAILS! Another player that never wanted to come off the field. True grit. One of the keys players for our midfield. A role model for the saying “never back down”.
Mom & Dad Bartosch: It’s hard to believe that you didn’t have the chance to finish out playing your senior year of lacrosse, but you have left your mark as a lacrosse player for the past 7 years. I can remember when you started playing lacrosse at Saint Edward’s with Coach Brown in middle school. He had so much faith in you and your ability to make game changing plays even after you never once came off the field during the game. You would be completely exhausted, but you still played the game until the whistle blew. I think you have played every position but goalie in a single game. You have always gone above and beyond what any coach has ever asked of you.
The highlight of your lacrosse career at SES for me as a parent would be when you & Gage were on the field together and won the district championship 2 years in a row. We were so proud to be there to watch you accomplish that goal together as brothers.
We are very proud of you and all your accomplishments at Saint Edward’s on and off the field. We look forward to seeing what happens in the next chapter of your life.
My favorite moment as a SES lacrosse player:
My favorite moment was probably the district championship game of the 2018 year. It was a tight game at one point but we came out on top, it was also the last game I got to play with my brother.
One thing I am very proud of that I brought to this team:
One of the things I tried to teach some of the younger players is that if there's a problem fix it, don't wait for somebody else to do it.
I am planning on attending IRSC to get a business degree and start working for my family business.
I would like to thank my parents for being right behind me whether it be school or lacrosse no matter what was happening; you two were always there to either congratulate me or help me do better.
Gage, thank you for always trying to make me a better player, I have always wanted to be the player you were. Levi you have always been there to tell me to put someone on their butt and I think the whole team appreciates you doing that.
Coach Bailey we have always been pretty close on the field, you always pushed me to make myself better as a player and person, thank you for being a coach and mentor for me.
Coach O'Brien you have always been the person I went to when I had a problem, whether it was something on the field, in the locker room or in life you have always helped me out thank you.
To the team, this was our year we were going to run over every team in our bracket, we made some good memories this year and in the past years, I wish we could just have one more game to show everybody what we were really made of. Next season's yours, run it up!
