Lacrosse Teams Looks to Repeat as Inter-Ac Champs


Friars celebrate after defeating Loyola Blakefield last season

The Lacrosse team had unprecedented success last year en route to an Inter-Ac championship. However, their heartbreaking loss to Haverford at the Inter-Ac invitational has left them with a chip on their shoulder.

In addition to their Inter-Ac rivals, Spring-Ford, Salesianum, Avon Grove, La Salle, Central Bucks East, The Hill School, St. Augustine’s Prep, Strath Haven, and Conestoga are on the schedule. We open the season with by traveling to Maryland for games against Loyola Blakefield and St. Mary’s.

This team offers a mix of old and new faces as they look to build on last year’s success. At goalie, senior Carson Cocco (committed to Quinnipiac) will start. He was undefeated in his three starts last season. The defense will feature two-time First Team All Inter-Ac Greg Pelton (Duke), Chris Isenberg (Penn State), Ryder Harkins (Loyola), and junior Mike Mulqueen (Penn).

The midfield will include Kevin McGeary (Penn), Tripp Traynor (Penn State), Drew Schantz (Notre Dame), and face-off specialist Charles Kelly (North Carolina). Named to First Team All Inter-Ac last year, Ryan Hilburn (Boston University) is the leading returning scorer, and seeks to lead a talented group of attackmen including senior Conor Glancy (Army), and sophomores Adam Goldner and Kyle Anderson, who transferred from Downingtown East last year.

In Coach McEvoy’s second season, the schedule has gotten stronger. With the season coming closer, they seem to be ready for any competition.
