With the college lacrosse season in full swing, a number of Second City coaches are competing on the fields and on the sidelines for a number of colleges. We wanted to catch everyone up on the spring season's for all of Second City's coaches competing at the NCAA level.
SC Connection: Trey Mobley, Nic Perkins, Evan Kilbane, Colin Domek, Chris Button, Jack Moran, Mateo Salceda
Benedictine is off to a great start to their season. Sitting at 6-2 and coming off a 22-5 victory over regional rival Concordia Chicago, the Eagles are feeling good. SC Coaches Domek and Perkins anchor the Eagles on offense, sitting at #1 and #2 on the team in points respectively. The Eagles' great start has also included a great effort by Coach Kilbane in net who is making saves at a 52% clip to start the year. In the middle of the field, Coach Salceda and Mobley have combined for 81 ground balls and combine for a vicious combination on face-offs.
SC Connection: Connor Freeman, Jacob Freeman
The month of March saw two Second City coaches record their first points on the Division 1 level. Both Connor and Jacob are seeing big minutes at the top of Lafayette's midfield line and are helping build one of the youngest programs in Division 1.
SC Connection: Jack Speers
Lynchburg University currently sits at #4 in the nation at the D3 level. Jack Speers is a big reason why. Speers' most exciting moment was scoring late in the fourth quarter in Lynchburg's win over then #1 Salisbury on March 6th. Speers has been a solid contributor for a Lynchburg squad that has their sights set squarely on Championship Weekend.
SC Connection: Mason Ade
Rhodes has recovered from an 0-2 start to the season and have since won 3 games in a row. Coach Ade scored his first NCAA goal on March 21st on a beautiful left handed rip. We will be keeping a close eye as Coach Ade continues to establish himself as a contributor on the Rhodes squad.
That concludes our April College Connection update. We can't wait to see how all of our coaches continue to elevate as the season goes on!
