Siam Owen, a former Queen Anne lacrosse player, will start his high school lacrosse as a freshman at O’Dea High School. Siam played with the regional Seattle Starz lacrosse and representing the area on the West Coast Starz 2012 summer team, one of the elite clubs in the West.
Through Starz, Owen attended two lacrosse invitational NCAA & MCLA recruiting events.
