Wings Acquire College Standout In Trade

The Philadelphia Wings, the defending National Lacrosse League
Champions, acquired Keith Cromwell from the Buffalo Bandits in exchange for the Wings' first round 2001 Entry Draft selection, as was announced today by Wings General Manager Marty O'Neill.

"Keith is a tough and talented forward," said O'Neill in making the
announcement. "He was a tremendous player at Rutgers University,
and we think he'll make the transition indoors nicely."

Cromwell, 6' 1" 180 lb. Hicksville, NY-native, was Columbus' second
round 2001 NLL Entry Draft selection (19th overall), and was traded later in the draft to Buffalo for two third-round picks. He accumulated 266 career points (152G, 144A) in 55 games played during his career at Rutgers University, good for first in career points and career goals in Rutgers lacrosse history, as well as third in career assists in school history.

Cromwell was twice named fist team All-ECAC ('01, '00) and second team USILA All American ('01). Cromwell also led the ECAC in point per game (4.38) and was sixth in the nation in points per game during his 2001 season.

The Wings will raise their 2001 NLL Championship banner when they host division rivals the New York Saints in their 2001-02 regular season home opener at the First Union Center on Friday, January 18. The Wings will commence their 2001-02 season, the earliest in franchise history, when they travel to Albany to face the Attack at the Pepsi Arena on Saturday, December 1.
