Two Boston Bolts standouts – U-17 goalkeeper Tristan Stephani (Norfolk, Mass.) and U-19 striker Jaren Suttles (Springfield, Mass.) have committed to Holy Cross for its Class of 2020 and 2019, respectively.

The Netherlands native just wrapped up his seventh season of leading Holy Cross, largely middling in the Patriot League.
