2017 Season Preview:

Thayer boy’s lacrosse is once again gearing up for a 2017 strong season. Our offense should again be the backbone of our success where we return 4 of our top 5 scorers in Jayce Lambert, Peter Sullivan, Henry Rentz and Tyler Green. Each of these players had been named to league honors in 2016 and Tyler Green has also been able to establish himself as one of the top face-off specialists in the country. Senior Co-Captain Ryan Farley also returns in good health & should have a significant role with his booming shot.

At the midfield we return 3rd year starters in Co-Captain Brendan Lee, PJ Garrett, Connor Sage and Ian Thompson. These 4 young men are multi-sport athletes who have earned letters in each of the past 2 seasons and can contribute well at both ends of the field.

At defense, we return 2 of our 3 starters from 2016. A key returning junior starter, Duke Lenaghan, has been a stalwart at the back end since stepping onto the field as a freshman & he’ll be called upon along with 2 other seniors, Elliot Nichols and John Geraghty who have played very well in the past. These two seniors will be expected to take on more significant roles in supporting our young goalies that are competing for the starting role.

The Tiger lacrosse coaching staff includes long-time assistant & Academic Administrator-Matt Dunne, 2nd year assistant-Tim Galvin, former TA player-Chris Bowman and Head Coach Stew Curran who enters his 7th season at the helm. On the JV level our younger athletes have 2 former HS & college players in Joe Johnson & Kevin Blackmur. Each made large contributions as JV coaches last season and will traveling again to work our spring clinic in Florida this March.

In the past, the Thayer boy’s lacrosse players have always worked to represent the school and program well. Our offensive firepower and leadership should allow TA to challenge for a league title in 2017.
