Kaut's Performance Reminiscent Of Another Nittany Lion Goalie

Three-time All-American goalie Drew Adams, too, started as a freshman for the Nittany Lion lacrosse team. He spent four years, 2006-`09, minding the net for Penn State, earning East Coast Athletic Conference (ECAC) Goalie of the Year laurels three times.
His best performance, however, may also have come in a game against UMass at Garber Field. In 2007, Adams - then a sophomore - recorded 20 saves in a 6-5 overtime loss to the Minutemen. Adams' stellar effort came against a UMass team that reached the NCAA finals the previous year.
Adams went on to become Penn State's all-time leader in saves with 694. His save total is 123 more than any other Penn State goalie. Joe Guterding, who minded the net for the Nittany Lions from 1979 - 1982, is second all time with 571 saves.
Adams finished his Penn State career with an all-time record of 29-25.
Kaut is 3-3 as a starter for Penn State. He has already recorded 98 saves and a .671 save percentage in only six games.
Kaut may have one-upped Adams with a signature win against UMass at Garber Field, but only time will tell if Kaut can have the same impact as Adams on the Penn State lacrosse program.
