Lacrosse - Varsity Boys
2018 Season Preview:
The Tigers return a strong nucleus which will hopefully lead to a strong season in 2018. Our 2017 record was 8 wins & 9 losses and we hope to build upon our late season success where we won 7 of our last 10 games.
4 captains & 3 season starters include:
Attack - Jayce Lambert
Defense – Duke Lenaghan & Drew Callahan & PJ Garrett.
Jayce Lambert & Duke Lenaghan were 2017 All-ISL lacrosse selections.
Both Drew Callahan & PJ Garrett are 2 sport captains at Thayer and superb athletes on their way to strong collegiate programs in football & hockey.
Other key returning starters include: Jr-Attacker/Judge Murphy, Soph-Middie Peter Kip, Soph-Middie Ryan Bogar, Jr-Goalie/Aidan Gallagher, Sr-FOGO Ian Thompson, Jr-Middie Jack Murphy, Jr-Def Jack Daley, Jr-Def Bo Rinkus, Jr-Def Jay Nolen and Jr-Def/Nick Meucci.
The overall strength lies in the return of 6 experienced defenders as well as a talented group of attackers. Our captain, Jayce Lambert has 175 points with 107 goals /68 assists over the past 3 seasons. He is on pace to challenge the TA scoring records set by Harry Giarusso, (2014), who netted 220 points on 163 goals & 57 assists.
We look forward to challenge that 2018 brings!
