Cole Kastner

2023 Scholarship Recipient

Cole is a fourth-year majoring in Finance and IT in the McIntire School. Cole is a current Team Captain of the Men’s Lacrosse team, won a National Championship in 2021, and was recognized as the ACC Defensive Player of the Year in 2022. In 2022, he almost became a rare two-sport athlete at The University, but his rigorous academic schedule caused him to reconsider. While maintaining the busy schedule of a Virginia student-athlete, Cole has attained a strong record of community service, especially in the area of mentoring and tutoring local youths. He’s a proven leader off the field as well, holding leadership positions within Student Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC), Peer Academic Coaching (PAC), and the Citizens Leaders and Sports Ethics Community Impact Fellowship.

Cole graduated from The Menlo School in Menlo Park, CA where he captained both the Men’s Varsity Basketball Team and Lacrosse Team.
