This marked the fourth straight winning season for the program. They played a very tough schedule with 11 ranked teams and one Division 1 opponent, and won five of those games. Famiglietti was the primary goalie with 142 saves, allowed 8.07 goals per game with a .557 save percentage, and had 24 ground balls. He was a leader on the field, anchoring a stingy defense that was ranked second in the conference and allowed less than seven goals per game going into nationals.
At Peabody High “Fam” was a three year varsity member and two year starter, who was named both a GBL and NEC all-star in his junior and senior years respectively.
“Going to nationals was an unbelievable experience,” said the 23-year old Famiglietti, who is a business marketing major. “It was just a great atmosphere with all the teams together. I hadn’t played college lacrosse since 2010, but I had been in some summer tournaments with the guys from Salem State.
“After I told Bryan I was really interested in playing I didn’t have much time to get ready. I did a lot of running and lifting so I would be ready to play with those younger guys. Peabody High lacrosse is one big family. That feeling was instilled in all of us, and I can’t thank Bryan enough for giving me this amazing opportunity. I really didn’t know what to expect, but the quality lacrosse played was much higher than I was expecting. I can’t wait for next season, and I hopefully we’ll get back to the nationals.”
While the Red Sox were away in Detroit last week a few St. John’s Prep football players and their dads had the thrill of a lifetime playing in a softball charity game fund raiser at Fenway. The event raised $240,000 for Action for Boston Community Development.
