Varsity Head Coach Don Reynolds says, “We are excited for the upcoming season and opportunity to continue to build this program into a consistently competitive program in the MIAA A Conference. We graduated arguably the best class in our school’s history last year with 10 college commits and anticipated the 2023 season being an opportunity to start truly building on the foundation that was laid by the Classes of 2021 and 2022. Those classes established a new identity for our program and set a new standard for what it means to be Patriot lacrosse player in all facets of the student-athletes’ life.
“From a team perspective, we feel confident in our returning defense and face-off personnel. On the offensive side of the field, we are young but aggressive in our style of play. We made some key additions to our coaching staff in the off-season with the hiring of Braden Wallace, Ian Bohager and Tyrell Demby. Coach Wallace relocated from Ontario, Canada and will lead our offense. Coach Bohager will work with goalies and as a defensive assistant while Coach Demby will be an offensive assistant and run the box on game days. Recruiting has been strong and we are excited about our future, this season and beyond. We have a vision for this program that will take time, but we are confident in the process that is underway.”
