As a student-athlete at Endicott, Hagarty excelled academically as a business administration undergraduate with a concentration in management en route to being named a USILA Scholar All-American in his senior year, remained with his alma mater where he has also served the College as an Assistant Director of Admission. In 2011, Hagarty also completed his master's in business administration from Endicott.
His athletic achievements during his four-year career at Endicott are lengthy starting with three USILA All-American Honorable Mention nods in 2008, 2009, and 2010, two CCC and ECAC Defensive Player of the Year awards in 2008 and 2010, and three All-CCC First Team accolades. He was also twice listed on the "Watch List" for the Tewaaraton Trophy which is given annually to the most outstanding American college lacrosse player.
Hagarty ended his career as the program's all-time wins leader (48) and sported a 6.73 goals against average and a .609 save percentage over 70 games played. His 5.43 goals against average as a sophomore in 2008 was the best performance among all goalies in NCAA Division III lacrosse that season.
As a defensive-minded assistant coach, Hagarty has worked with seven USILA All-Americans including a three-time honoree between the pipes and rising senior Cameron Bell (Falmouth, Maine).

He was first selected by the Cannons in the 2012 MLL Supplemental Draft in the 18th round (144th overall) and in 2014 was chosen again this time in the 11th round (83rd overall).
