BISHOP FENWICK CRUSADERS SPRING SPORTS PREVIEWS 2014

(Continued)

Concerns: The injury factor has plagued the Crusaders in the past, so Lyman is hoping that his team can stay relatively healthy this year. As deep as the starting group is, the backups are pretty young with limited varsity experience.

Coach’s Outlook: “We’re fortunate in the sense that we’re a veteran team, so not being outside just yet won’t hurt us too much. We open up with two very strong league games against Arlington Catholic and Cardinal Spellman.”

BOYS LACROSSE

Last year’s record: 11-10 (lost to Hanover, 18-1, in East Division 3 first round)

Head coach:: Ralph Ruocco (1st season)

Captains: Kyle Russell, Sr. A; Ben Kaupp, Sr. D.

Key returnees: Chris Napolitano, So. A; Chris Carney, Jr. A; Ryan Coccoluto, So. A; Mark Nalesnik, Sr. M; Coleman Hebert, Jr. M; Joey Gray, Sr. M; Kevin Hannon, Sr. M; Christopher Cummings, Sr. M; Dan Hannon, So. M; Teddy Booras, Sr. M; Nick Coccoluto, Sr. M; Tyler Fouhey, Sr. M; Nick Gulla, Sr. M; Josh Cameron, Jr. M; Jimmy Digiulio, Jr. M; Peter Choi, Jr. M; Brandon DeBerardinis, Jr. D; Tom Delaney, Sr. D; Dylan Maida, Jr. G.

Strengths: Returning players. The Crusaders welcome back 21 returning varsity players from a team that qualified for its first tournament in program history.

Concerns: Adjusting to a new coach. Ruocco is new to the Fenwick program but has experience at the varsity high school level, most recently at Marshwood High School in South Berwick, Maine.

Coach’s Outlook: Even though it’s his first season at the helm, Ruocco hopes to build on the Crusaders’ success from last year.

GIRLS LACROSSE

Last year’s record: 13-7 (lost to Marblehead, 21-5, in the North Division 2 quarterfinals)

Head coach:: Karen Guillemette (8th season)

Captains: Annette Ruggeiro, Sr. M; Natalie Emerson, Sr. C; Tessa McLaughlin, Sr. M.
