Brad came to BL as a freshman in the fall of 1970. Brad was an excellent pupil ranked 5th in his class of 55 and was a three year member of the National Honor Society here at Boys’ Latin. Brad also excelled in athletics earning seven varsity letters, three in football and two each in basketball and lacrosse. He began his BL athletic career playing soccer but switched to football his sophomore year earning a spot on BL’s talented 1971 varsity team. He was a two-way player and by his senior year in 1973 he played both offensively and defensively for the Lakers leading the team in rushing yards and in number of tackles. He was a natural leader and he was selected co-captain of the 1973 football team and captain of the 1973-74 basketball team. He was the point guard for varsity basketball coach Hugh Gelston ‘56, and was known for his aggressive defense. In lacrosse, he played on the championship junior varsity lacrosse team as a midfielder in 1972 - BL’s first JV lacrosse title since 1949. As a member of the varsity lacrosse team Brad switched to defense for Coach Dyson Ehrhardt’59 and was named 2ndteam All-Metro by The Baltimore Sun and one of the Top 20 players in the Maryland Scholastic Association (MSA) his junior year. During his senior year Brad helped lead the Lakers to the MSA Division II title and was selected 1st team All-Metro by The Baltimore Sun and The Baltimore News American. After graduating from BL, Brad continued his studies and his impressive lacrosse career at Yale University. During his senior year with the Bulldogs, he was elected captain of the team and named the team’s Most Valuable Player. He also earned 2nd Team All-Ivy League honors that season. Brad was inducted into the Boys’ Latin Athletic Hall of Fame in 2010. Brad Gano died this past November from complications of skin cancer. He was just 56 years old.
Mick Webster, BL Class of 1955 Mick came to BL from Calvert School as a seventh-grader in 1949. Academically he was ranked number one in his class for years, including his senior year. Mick was also a three sport athlete. He earned eight varsity letters and was voted best athlete by his classmates. The Alumni Cup for “Leadership based on character” was given to Mickey his senior year. He was an Honorable Mention All-Maryland lacrosse player in 1953, 2nd team All-Maryland selection in 1954, and was selected to the All-Maryland 1st team in 1955. Mick was BL’s leading scorer all three years he played on the varsity scoring 63 goals. He became BL’s third recipient of the C. Markland Kelly Award in 1955 which is awarded annually to the best high school player in the state of Maryland. Mick led the Latinists to the Private School MSA title game in 1955. In the 12-5 loss to St. Paul’s Mick scored two goals and assisted on the other three. Mickey continued his fabulous lacrosse career at Johns Hopkins University and was selected 1st team All-American three straight years. He still holds the Blue Jay record for assists in a single year with 52. Mick was inducted into the National Lacrosse Hall of Fame in 1977, the Johns Hopkins University Hall of Fame in 1996, and the Boys’ Latin Athletic Hall of Fame in 2006. He is one of just two BL graduates currently in the State of Maryland Athletic Hall of Fame. Two of Mick’s sons, John ’88 and Ned ’94 played high school lacrosse for Bob Shriver ’69 here at Boys’ Latin. Like his dad, John also was the recipient of the C. Markland Kelly Award in 1988. They were the second "Father/Son" winners of the award in its history and the first “Father/Son” winners from the same school. Mick Webster died from complications of cancer last September. He was 75 years old.

A HISTORICAL OVERVIEW OF THE BOYS’ LATIN SCHOOL OF MARYLAND Founded in 1844 by Evert Marsh Topping, a professor of Classics at Princeton University, The Boys’ Latin School of Maryland is the oldest non-sectarian school in the state of Maryland. From 1844 until 1960, the School was located in downtown Baltimore and was operated by a succession of headmasters as a business. In 1960, Boys’ Latin almost ceased to exist, as the School’s Brevard Street location was scheduled by the city for demolition as part of urban renewal. The School’s owners at the time decided to cease operations rather than undertake the rigors of relocation. The three owners had, however, underestimated the impact Boys’ Latin had made on Baltimore’s educational and professional landscapes. Indeed, Boys’ Latin Alumni were leaders in the private and civic sectors of the Greater Baltimore metropolitan area and beyond. A movement began, spearheaded by then-President of the Alumni Association, Jack H. Williams ‘38, to preserve the tradition of Boys’ Latin. A lengthy search for a new campus site was undertaken, monies were hastily solicited and collected, a Board of Trustees was named, and the School was incorporated as a non-profit institution. Thirteen acres in Roland Park, the Cooper Estate, were purchased. Without missing a single semester, Boys’ Latin opened in the fall of 1960 at its present location on West Lake Avenue. During the 2011-2012 school year Boys’ Latin School celebrated its 51st anniversary on Lake Avenue. In the last 51 years, the school has grown tremendously in terms of population, campus and curricular offerings. In September 2011 the School opened with over 600 boys in grades K-12, a marked increase over the September 1960 enrollment of 120 in grades 1-12. Boys’ Latin campus has grown in that time from one building to 11 buildings on both sides of Lake Avenue and in January, 2010, opened a brand new middle school building and gymnasium. As steady as the BL growth was, no single event put the school on “Baltimore’s map” more so than the 1964 Championship Lacrosse season, when our little David of a school took on the Goliaths of the MSA (the present MIAA) and emerged as victors! Boys’ Latin had indeed arrived and has worked hard on staying there ever since. Boys’ Latin began playing varsity lacrosse in 1929 so this year marks the 83rd anniversary of Laker Lacrosse. Championship victories in 1932 and 1934 weren’t followed with another crown until ‘64. The Lakers again won Championships in 1966, 1985, 1988, 1997, 2002, and in 2006. Since relocating to Lake Avenue, Boys’ Latin has reached the “A” Conference Championship game more than any other league opponent –nineteen times! While it is virtually impossible to predict the season outcome when competing in the country’s most competitive conference, one thing is for certain: the Lakers will play hard with a confidence that comes from a program that demonstrates excellence and sportsmanship time and time again. Boys’ Latin School has grown dramatically in its almost 167-year history. Though its face may be different – no longer at its downtown location or no longer the one-building school of the early 1960’s – BL remains the same. The School led the way in building its overall program on the precept that individual attention can benefit boys of differing economic, social and intellectual backgrounds. The success of our students and the accomplishments of our graduates offer eloquent testimony to the continued merit of this philosophy.
THE BOYS' LATIN COACHES and STAFF A 1969 Boys' Latin graduate, Bob Shriver is entering his 38th year on the Laker coaching staff (2013 will be his 34th as the Head Coach). While a student at Boys' Latin, Shriver was a two-year varsity letterman and the first Laker athlete honored by The Baltimore Sun as an “Athlete of the Week” in 1968. Shriver graduated from Washington College in 1973, where he was a four-year letterman, twice captain of the Sho'men, and a two-time AllAmerican selection as a midfielder. He was inducted into the Washington College Athletic Hall of Fame in 1995. Bob played in the 1973 NorthSouth All-Star game, was an alternate on the USA National Team in 1974 and 1978 and played in the professional box league for the Maryland Arrows, and Boston Bolts. He returned to Boys' Latin as a science teacher and assistant varsity lacrosse coach in 1975, taking over the varsity reins four years later. Additionally, he served as the varsity soccer coach until 1985. Shriver guided the Lakers to their first Maryland Scholastic Association "A" Conference title in 19 years when they defeated Loyola 7-4 in the 1985 title game. BL again won "A" Conference championships in 1988, 1997, 2002, and 2006 –the ’97 and ’06 teams were both undefeated and declared consensus (there are now three major polls) NATIONAL CHAMPIONS. Under Shriver, who was inducted into the US Lacrosse’s Baltimore Chapter’s Hall of Fame in February of 1998, the Lakers have been perennial contenders in the very competitive MIAA "A" Conference, generally regarded as the strongest league in the country. They have qualified for 13 title game appearances since 1980. In Boys’ Latin’s last game in 2008, Bob achieved his 400th career victory as BL’s coach. Bob has also been the assistant coach on two USA U19 teams, 1988 and 1999, and was the U19 Head Coach in 2003. All those teams were World Champions and undefeated. Bob, in addition to coaching the BL varsity, teaches 7th grade earth science. This year, 2013, marks the 29th year that Steve Dubin, a 1979 graduate of Boys' Latin, has been a member of the varsity staff. As a student at BL, Steve was a four-year letterman in football and lacrosse as well as three years in wrestling. Steve was honored as a Regional Finalist Scholar Athlete, and was a three-year All-Metro selection as a lacrosse defenseman. Steve played collegiately at Johns Hopkins University, where he lettered four years for the Blue Jays. After playing for the 1984 National Championship team, he was honored with the Gordon Stick Award, as the team's unsung hero. Coach Dubin returned to Boys' Latin in 1985 when he accepted a position in our Development Office and in January 2006 was named as Boys’ Latin’s Head of Facilities. He was the 1992 recipient of the Gelston Cup (for unique contributions to the Boys’ Latin Lacrosse program), and was named the 2003 MIAA Assistant Coach of the Year by US Lacrosse. For the past eleven years he has been a Co-Director of Boys’ Latin’s boys’ lacrosse camps with Coaches Shriver and long time Boys’ Latin assistant coach, Quint Kessenich. His main area of responsibility is with our defense (both individual and team) and man-down play. In 2007, Steve was named Boys’ Latin “Associate Head Varsity Lacrosse Coach.”
Tano Arrogancia is starting his 8th year on the varsity staff. Tano is as accomplished and knowledgeable lacrosse coach as our area has. The past Head Coach at Pikesville (Pikesville won the ‘99 state “B” title), former assistant at Hereford and St. Paul’s, and also an assistant for the Baltimore Bayhawks, Tano has extensive experience working with goalies and face-off men. Tano has established a reputation as one of the most sought after goalie tutors in the Baltimore area, and is a tireless worker as a member of the Maryland State Lacrosse Coaches Association (MLSCA). Tano will once again work with our goal tenders and face-off personnel. Kyle Hartzell is one of two third year coaches. For the third winter in a row, Kyle trained our upper school lacrosse players. He did another fantastic job and we are excited to get him back for another spring. Kyle, a ’03 graduate of Archbishop Curley, attended Essex Community College for a year before transferring to Salisbury. As a player at Essex and Salisbury, he won a National Championship with each program. His playing career really took off at Salisbury as he switched positions form attack to defense. He now plays professionally for the NLL’s (indoor) Philadelphia Wings Stealth and after an excellent career playing for the MLL’s Bayhawks; he was traded to a new franchise, in Columbus, OH that began play in the summer of 2012. Kyle has the unique distinction of winning Championships in two professional leagues, indoor and outdoor, to go along with his Junior College and DIII titles. Kyle coaches individual and team defense. Brian Nee, a 2000 BL graduate, played on one of the finest attack units BL has ever had. His devastating play around the goal accounted for over 114 career goals (topped by only a few people in BL lacrosse history). Brian continued his lacrosse playing at Syracuse where his team won the National Title at M&T Stadium in 2004 with Brian playing an incredible game. Brian coached in ’05 before going to California in ’06. He returned to the staff seven years ago in ’07 and we are thrilled to get him back. He will work with our attack, the overall offense, and is responsible for the EMO. Lewis Scharff is beginning his sixth year helping the varsity squad. He has provided invaluable assistance running our winter weight lifting and running program as well as working in the off-season with the midfielders. Additionally, Lewis has coached the Lakers when they play together in the summer, most recently at the Brine Shootout. Along with coaching the midfielders, Coach Scharff has the difficult task of managing the “box” during game days. Lewis, a graduate of Salisbury University, is the parent of former BL student/athletes’ Adam, class of ’08 and ’12 graduate of Bates College (ME), and Jimmy, class of ’11, who attends McDaniel College.
BOYS’ LATIN COACHES and STAFF – Continued Wallace Sifford, a longtime coach for the Boys’ Latin football program, Coach Sifford has become a fixture on the Laker lacrosse sideline. A Baltimore native, Coach Sifford was a track star at City High School and the University of California at Berkeley. Coach Sifford has been a steadying influence for all our players and has a keen eye for the individual needs of each and every player on the team. Wallace helps in all facets of the game but concentrates on defense. Coach Sifford is loved and respected by the players and been a wonderful addition to the lacrosse staff. Tad Stanwick, BL class of ’05, begins his third year on the varsity staff. Tad entered BL as a freshman in the fall of ’01. He played on the varsity all four years of high school and had an excellent career. He played in two Championship games, ’02 and ’05, winning a title in his freshman year in ’02. Tad went to Rutgers University and had an outstanding career. He was forced to redshirt one year due to ACL surgery but came back strong and was captain in ‘10. It is great having Tad back involved with the team and he is helping in a variety of areas. Tad warms up goalies, helps with the attack play, overall offense, and shooting. Tad will only be with us until early April when he heads off to the Navy in hopes of reaching his ultimate goal to become a Navy Seal. Gene Ubriaco, a 1989 BL graduate and 1993 graduate of Loyola College, has been a part of our varsity staff for 13 years. He coached for 8 years starting in 1997 before taking a few years to work at St. Paul’s. He returned to the BL staff in ’09. Gene is our offensive coordinator. He has been part of some great BL teams both as a player and coach, and his experience has been invaluable for our players. A great player in high school, Gene was a High School All-American but unfortunately suffered a major knee injury that hampered his college career at Loyola. Gene is also a member of the Middle School Staff, teaching 6th grade math and geography. Gene’s son Michael, BL class of ’18, is in our 7th grade. Steele Stanwick, Boys’ Latin is excited to add Steele to the staff for his first year. One of the greatest players in the history of Maryland High school lacrosse while playing for Loyola, class of ’08, Steele continued his excellent play at the University of Virginia. Winner of two MIAA titles, ’07 and ’08, while at Loyola, Steele also won anNNCAA title in ’11 while at UVA. A perennial All-American in both high school and college, Steele was the winner of the Tewaaraton Award in 2011 as our Nations’ Finest Collegiate Men’s Lacrosse Player. We feel fortunate to have Steele as part of our program and look forward to tapping into his exceptional lacrosse mind as he helps coach all aspects of offense and individual offensive skills.
Chris Kury, Boys’ Latin’s Head Athletic Trainer, is a 1990 graduate of York Catholic High School (PA). He received a B.S. in Physical Education (Athletic Training concentration) from Towson State University in 1995. Chris worked at Towson Sports Medicine performing Outpatient Physical Therapy for 6 years and was the Head Athletic Trainer at Calvert Hall College from 1994-2000. Since the fall of ’00, Chris has been in charge of the entire BL training program. As a Certified Athletic Trainer (ATC) and a NSCA Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS), Boys’ Latin has been able to utilize his vast experience as both a trainer and strength coach to elevate the level of play of all our athletic teams. Chris has been the trainer for three World Champion US U19 teams in ’03, ’08 and ’12. While in Finland last summer, the U19s were victorious over the world once again for their 7th straight world championship. Chris and his wife Camie, a former middle school teacher at BL, are the proud parents of their three year old son Aiden.

THE 2012 SEASON REVIEW After the heart breaking 2011 season-ending MIAA semi-final OT loss to eventual league Champion Gilman, the ’12 Boys’ Latin varsity lacrosse team was anxious for a new season to begin. Before beginning practice, BL, for the second year in a row, had a two day “mini camp” to evaluate any player wanting to try out for the varsity for the first time. It provides those young men an opportunity to perform without the pressure of going against returning varsity players. With the mini camp over, those young men who survived it join the varsity letterman from the year before for the traditional practice start date following President’s weekend. We suffered some considerable graduation losses in ’11 but had a nucleus of some fine players to build the ’12 team around. Seniors Greg Pyke and George Rice, junior Colin Heacock, and sophomore Shack Stanwick returned on attack. In the midfield, the Lakers returned nine young men with substantial varsity experience led by senior Brandon Cherry. Juniors Michael Lynch, Bryan Lictenhauer, Ben Pridemore, Casey Rees, Chris Rubino, Greg Sheetz, and sophomores Hunter Moreland and Tally Bruno rounded out the midfield. Defense would be anchored by seniors Robbie Byrd, Nick Shepherd, and Matt Rees, along with junior Mac Pons. In the goal, junior Christian Knight was the lone varsity returner at that position. Those 18 men were soon joined by a solid core of younger players coming up from a good 2011 JV team. Our annual scrimmage with the powerful Landon School (22 of the last 23 years) from the MD/DC area’s IAC Conference was good, but we didn’t fare as well in another scrimmages verses Georgetown Prep, another of the IAC’s power teams. However, playing both IAC teams gave the Lakers a firm understanding of those things needed in order to maximize our talent. Because of the late “calendar” in ’12, BL’s spring break was later than normal in March so we had time for two games before what has become an annual spring break trip to Florida. As lacrosse continues to explode across the US, more and more high schools from around the country show an interest in traveling to play other teams. Our first game in ’12 was against such a school, Memphis University High School. MUHS is noted for its outstanding football program and a lacrosse program on the rise. They had a few very talented lacrosse players and a number of good athletes but couldn’t match BL’s lacrosse skill and lost 18-5 as 11 different Lakers scored goals. On the last school day before spring break, the Lakers traveled to PA to take on a solid but lean Penn Charter team. BL exploded for 5 goals in the third quarter to PC’s one to break away from the 3-3 half time score. However, with 5 seconds left in the quarter, Penn Charter threw a mid-filed shot at the Laker cage and it found its way into the back of the net. Now down by only 3, PC dominated the fourth quarter and tied the game at the end of regulation. One minute into overtime, junior middie Michael Lynch scored a spectacular dodging goal, his third on the day, to win the contest. That game turned out to be the first of 8 one-goal games BL played in ’12, with four going into overtime. BL soon arrived in Florida for spring break. We opened right away with a game against defending Florida High School Champions, Lake Highland Prep, from Orlando. They traveled south to meet the Lakers in Boca Raton and, like the Penn Charter game; BL struggled to hold a solid lead. Ahead 6-3 at half, tied at 6-6 at the end of third, BL played a very good fourth quarter as Shack Stanwick scored both goals and finished the day with an excellent game tallying 3 goals and 3 assists. BL then had four very good practices before taking on the Scots of St. Andrews School, Florida’s most dominate high school program for the past 20 years. Winning 3-1 at half the Lakers, once again, couldn’t hold the lead and entered the 4th up a goal that quickly turned into a 1 goal deficit with 7 minutes left on the clock. Still down 1 with less than 2 minutes left,
BL’s George Rice knotted the tying goal, his second of the day, before Penn Charter hero Michael Lynch won another game in dramatic fashion. Off a beautiful extra man feed from Shack Stanwick, Michael banged the game winner home with 1 second on the clock. Michael, George Rice, and Tally Bruno each had two goals and Shack chipped in with 4 assists. It was another wonderful and successful trip to Florida but BL had yet to put an entire game together and was just as close to being 1-3 as they were to the 4-0 record they headed home from Florida with. The early season inconsistency caught up to the Lakers in the next game. A solid St. Stephen’s St. Agnes team from Northern Virginia (SSSA plays in both the IAC and the Tidewater Interscholastic Lacrosse League) came up to BL and won the game 7-5. The Saints controlled the tempo throughout the game and forced BL to play catch-up, unsuccessfully, all afternoon. Since the “A” Conference was now only playing nine league games, that wouldn’t start until the second Tuesday in April, BL had many new faces on the schedule, starting with Fallston High School as our next opponent. Fallston, a team that would eventually compete in the State Finals, couldn’t match the Lakers depth and lost 14-6. BL had 11 different scorers with middie Ben Pridemore’s 3 goals leading the way. Next up was an excellent team from the state of Indiana, Culver Academy. Culver, a relative new comer to the upper levels of high school lacrosse, had some truly amazing players that included a number of Canadians. The game was as exciting a high school game as one could see as the Lakers pulled out a 1 goal thriller 10-9. BL was lead by Michael Lynch’s 2 goal, 2 assist effort as mid Tally Bruno and attackmen Colin Heacock chipped in with 2 goals apiece. Culver ended up winning the Midwest Championship with an impressive 18-3 record. Another of Maryland’s better public school teams, Bel Air High school, was easily defeated 17-3 as the BL attack of Colin Heacock (4G), George Rice (3G), Shack Stanwick (2G), Colin Chell (2G), Greg Pyke (1G), and Jake Walsh (1G) accounted for 13 of the 17 tallies. April was upon the Lakers and BL had a difficult Easter Week ahead playing, at the time, the #1 High School team in the country, Conestoga PA, and emerging power Gonzaga High from DC. For the second year in the row, the BL-Conestoga game featured two outstanding high school teams from two of our countries hot beds of lacrosse going at it toe to toe. With never more than one goal separating the two teams, the game was tied at 6-6 when time expired in the fourth quarter. Unfortunately for the Lakers, Conestoga scored off the opening OT faceoff to win 7-6. BL goalies Christian Knight and Kolby Caplin split halves and played well in front of the starting close defense of Mac Pons, Matt Rees, and Robbie Burd but Conestoga goalie Robbie Zenino was brilliant with 17 saves as the Lakers dominated offensive possession. With only one day to recover, BL ventured to Washington DC to play WCAC (Washington Catholic Athletic Conference) and up and coming national power, Gonzaga High School. As it turned out, playing two really difficult games over a three day period proved too much for the Lakers. In yet another one goal heartbreaker, the Lakers played inspired lacrosse overcoming an early 6-1 deficit to take a 12-10 lead heading to the forth. BL simply ran out of gas and succumbed to the Sags 1413 in spite of Colin Heacock’s brilliant 5 goal 2 assist performance. Gonzaga would go on to have a brilliant season at 22-1 and finish as the number 5 team in the country. With Easter break in the calendar and time away from both school and practice, the horizon didn’t look too promising for the Lakers. The National pre-season #1 team in the country, Calvert Hall, was first up on Tuesday and would be followed by the Loyola Dons, who were ranked #2 in the area behind the Cardinals.
THE 2012 SEASON REVIEW – Continued Not many times in the 80 plus year history of lacrosse by Boys’ Latin had the Lakers dropped four games in a row, but that’s what happened. Both Calvert Hall and Loyola were simply too good in those games as BL fell 12-5 and 13-6 to them respectively. It was an extremely difficult stretch of games for BL and there was plenty of soul searching going on by the BL coaching staff and the players. The Boys’ Latin lacrosse program is a proud one and they responded by going on a 5 game winning streak with consecutive wins over St. Mary’s, Severn, Archbishop Spalding, Mt. St. Joe, and archrival St. Paul’s. In the Saints’ game, goalie Christian Knight was excellent with 17 saves. Additionally, the attack unit of Stanwick (4A), Heacock (2G-2A), Chell (3G), and Pyke (3G) were outstanding as the Lakers built a 10-4 lead at half before winning 12-10. In a wild affair versus Severn in Severna Park, BL took a commanding 9-3 lead going into the fourth quarter. However, the Little Admirals staged a remarkable comeback and took a 10-9 lead with just over one minute to play in the game. Junior middie Ben Pridemore notched his second goal of the game with 10 seconds left after a great assist from running mate Tally Bruno. The Lakers lost the opening OT face-off but were fortunate to get the ball back. Tally Bruno banged home the game winner, his third goal of the day, with a rocket from 12 yards out as BL survived Severn. A workmanlike, methodical 10-4 win over Spalding was followed by a similar type game over Mt. St. Joe, 9-4 as BL showed balanced midfield, attack scoring and excellent defense. The team’s confidence had improved tremendously since the four game losing streak as we headed into May with St. Paul’s up next. The Crusaders were in the midst of the worst season in their storied lacrosse history. They had yet to win a league game but as anyone knows when rivalry games are played, anything can happen. Unmanned SP played hard in the first half and was only down 4-1 at the intermission. However, BL had a great third quarter outscoring the Crusaders 6-1 and then watched many of the reserves have an equally impressive fourth, 5-1, for an impressive 15-3 victory. Ten different Lakers scored with Shack’s four goals and an assist leading the way. BL had now qualified for the playoffs for the 26th time in the past 29 years, an amazing streak of consistency. Two league games remained against Gilman and McDonogh that would ultimately decide playoff seeding. In a game eerily similar to the Conestoga OT loss, BL fell to Gilman 11-10 in OT. It was the fourth straight single-goal loss to Gilman in the past two years and third one decided in OT. As the Conestoga net minder had done, Gilman goalie Bryan Moore continually stoned BL with 18 saves. BL won the stat sheet battle with more won face-offs, more shots, and more ground balls but could not hold onto an 8-6 lead heading into the last stanza. With no time to lament the loss, BL had to travel to McDonogh to close out the regular season. Both teams knew their fate before the game started, the winner would be seeded #4 and would host the loser, the #5 seed, the following Tuesday in the quarter-finals of the MIAA playoffs. McDonogh is a difficult place to play as they have one of only three grass fields in the league and easily the lushest and best natural surface in the “A” Conference. In a close game throughout, the Lakers entered the fourth quarter clinging to a 7-6 lead. BL watched the Eagles tie the game with a little over 7 minutes remaining. However, as he had done the year before in the MIAA quarter-finals, also at McDonogh, senior Greg Pyke scored the game winner off a nice Shack Stanwick assist. For the third year in a row, Boys’ Latin’s and McDonogh’s seasons would now come down to an MIAA playoff game.
BL was extremely happy to be playing home and took full advantage of the opportunity with a solid quarter-final victory. Tied 2-2 at half, BL played a wonderful 3rd quarter outscoring McDonogh 4-0. Goals by Keegan O’Connor, Tally Bruno, Greg Pyke, and Casey Rees in the period coupled with Christian Knight’s solid play in the goal help propel the Lakers to the 7-3 win. The MIAA, as it had been doing for many years, would move the semi-finals to a neutral site, this year at Towson University. The number one seed, Calvert Hall Cardinals, having a bye into the semi-finals, awaited the Lakers. As mentioned already, Calvert Hall was the pre-season pick as the “best high school team in the country.” They did suffer two losses during the regular season but only one in the MIAA, a one goal loss at McDonogh. Showing the late season improvement, BL played excellent lacrosse in the first half and were ahead at intermission, 6-4. Some excellent midfield play helped build the lead as the Lakers scored two goals in five seconds as the half was winding down. Tally Bruno’s unassisted goal was followed by Hunter Moreland’s face-off fast break assist to Shack Stanwick 5 seconds later that had BL taking loads of momentum into half time. Some early third quarter possessions for BL didn’t amount to anything and it gave CH a chance to get back into the game. They played excellent defense shutting BL down in the third while scoring three goals and had a 7-6 lead entering the final frame. The Cardinals added to the lead early in the period to go ahead 10-6 before Colin Heacock’s two goals reduced the deficit to two. Calvert Hall’s “invert” middie, Connor Brown, pushed the lead back to three with his third goal of the day with just over 4 minutes to play. BL, however, refused to give in and cut the gap to one with just over a minute left on goals by Ben Pridemore and Michael Lynch. CH won the ensuing face-off but turned the ball over with about 25 seconds left. The Lakers pushed the ball up the field but were unable to net the tying goal and lost 10-9. In the MIAA finals, Calvert Hall literally destroyed Loyola, who thrashed Gilman in the other semi-final, 17-3 in the Championship game and finished a fantastic year as the number two ranked high school in the country and, of course, number one in the state. Boys’ Latin finished the year 14-7 and were ranked # 5 in Maryland, #3 in the Metro area, and #32 in the country by Lax Power. While the year had many ups and downs, BL had a gratifying year. We finished strongly, won our quarter final playoff game and gave an exceptional team, Calvert Hall, everything they could handle in the semi-finals. With only 8 seniors in the team, the future is indeed bright for BL but the dedication and leadership those seniors showed in ’12 was what allowed the Lakers to finish so well. Attackmen Greg Pyke finished his third year on the varsity with his best season, scoring 25 goals to go with 8 assists. Greg, a dominate football player now playing that sport in the SEC at Georgia, used his massive 6’4”, 300 lb. frame with remarkable ability to go along with equally remarkable stick skills. Senior George Rice, a team captain and another attackmen, wasn’t able to break into the lineup as much as he hoped but had a productive year with 8 goals and his energy, enthusiasm, and leadership were on display every day. Midfielders Geron Brooks and Brandon Cherry also brought their considerable football talents to the lacrosse field. Geron was a skilled and very smart player who simply wasn’t able to get into the starting lineup but was a consistent and positive presence. Brandon, a superb running back in football now playing that for DIII power Johns Hopkins, was a mainstay as a defensive middie. Brandon has great feet and combined with his powerful build was a force all year covering top offensive middies. He had a great year and always played hard and with a smile on his face. BL’s graduated four players at the defensive end are all big contributors. Matt Rees started every game at close defense in ’12 and had a great season. He is a big, athletic young man
THE 2012 SEASON REVIEW â€“ Continued who possessed excellent cover skills to go along with attackmenlike stick work. Matt was a major force on the ground, ranking 1st on the team after the face-off guys, with over 50 groundballs. Matt was simply terrific in all clearing situations. Robbie Burd started the majority of the games at close defense and his steady play patrolling the inside allowed Matt and Mac Pons to take some chances on the perimeter knowing Robbie always had their back, Robbie was also counted on in man-down situations and used his smarts and solid stick skills to prevent many extra-man offensive attempts. Nick Shepherd and Brett Radcliffe were used exclusively at the pole position; both young men were relative newcomers to defense, Nick in his third year and Brett in his first. Nick had improved every year and his drive, athleticism, and exceptional play between the lines proved invaluable. Brett was more a cerebral type player who took full advantage of his left hand and lacrosse IQ to have a good year. The Lakers appreciate everything the seniors have given to school and, more specifically, the lacrosse program.

RETURNING BOYS’ LATIN LETTERMEN – 2013 Tom Brown (Defense, Sr., 6’1”, 210 lbs.) Tom, a big, strong, left handed close defender had an excellent junior season, his first on the varsity. One of the best communicators BL has ever had at the defensive end of the field, Tom helps our goalies conduct the defense from his typical “inside” position. Tom is also a capable cover man and a solid stick handler in the open field. Tom will attend the Virginia Military Institute next fall.
Tally Bruno (Midfield, Jr., 6’1”, 190 lbs.) Tally will begin his third year on the varsity. Steadily improving since his freshmen year, Tally had a great season last spring. Playing on one of the MIAA’s best midfield groups with Michael Lynch and Ben Pridemore, Tally scored 30 points last year on 25 goals and 5 assists. Tally has great legs, strength, a powerful shot, and is a dynamic player. A starter on the football team at cornerback, Tally also possesses a tough, never quit attitude. If Tally’s spring mirrors the wonderful growth he showed after his freshmen year, the sky is indeed the limit. Tally committed to Johns Hopkins last year where he’ll join his classmates Shack Stanwick and Hunter Moreland. Kolby Caplin (Goalie, Sr. 6’2”, 190 lbs.) Kolby played his first year of varsity Lacrosse in ’12. He is a big, strong net minder who started many games last spring. Kolby is excellent in and out of the goal and had a good year playing in over half our games. He ended up splitting time with Christian Knight for much of the year but, as the year waned, Christian played the majority of minutes. Kolby’s attitude remained excellent in spite of his situation and will fight Christian again this spring for the starting job. Kolby will continue to play lacrosse at Towson University. Colin Chell (Attack, Jr., 5’11”, 165 lbs.) Colin, an off-and-on starter last spring as an inside attackmen, had a very good year scoring 16 goals to go with 1 assist. A natural goal scorer who is very adept without the ball, Colin is a smart and competitive young man. We need Colin to be more consistent this spring and feel he can be; he could easily double his scoring output from last spring. Encouraging for Colin and, of course, BL is his physical growth since last spring. Colin will take his lacrosse talents to Ohio State University in the fall of ’14.
RETURNING BOYS’ LATIN LETTERMEN – 2013 – Continued Taylor Davis (Defense, Sr. 6’, 160 lbs.) One of, if not the hardest worker on the Team, Taylor played varsity for the first time in ’12. He brings amazing energy, commitment, and unselfishness to the program. Taylor will compete at close defense this spring and his left hand is a huge asset. Taylor will attend Washington College next fall.
Walker Ensor (Midfield, 6’1”, 160 lbs.) Walker joined the varsity for his first year in 2012. He is a relentless competitor whose game continues to improve. He runs the field well, has good size, and keeps getting better at both ends. He is part of a deep and talented midfield group who may ultimately make his biggest impact as a defensive middie. Walker is going to Mercer College in NC, a new DI program.
Nick Gesualdi (Midfield, Jr., 6’1”, 180 lbs.) Nick had an excellent sophomore year on the varsity once the staff figured out how to best utilize him. Nick became a defensive midfield specialist who was also our designated clearer. An excellent two way player in football, d-back/wide receiver, Nick has the kind of toughness and unselfish attitude to be good at his job. He continues to grow physically and his offensive skills get better and better. We anticipate Nick having a great spring as part of a deep and talented midfield group. Chad Greenberg (Defense, Sr., 5’8”, 150 lbs.) Chad played for the first time on the varsity last spring as a “pole” defender. An adept left handed stick handler, Chad played primarily as a backup last spring. Chad runs very well, has an assortment of checks, and is seldom out of position. We are counting on Chad to have solid senior season as he returns as our most experienced pole. He will attend DII University of Tampa next fall, a relatively new college lacrosse program. Colin Heacock (Attack, Sr., 6’2”, 190 lbs.) Colin has had two solid years on the varsity. He finished last year with an impressive 34 goals and 23 assists campaign while starting on attack. He has great size, is left handed, and plays extremely hard. One of the best riders in BL lacrosse history, Colin is also a tremendous basketball player and, this winter, helped lead the Lakers to their finest basketball season in over a decade. We anticipate Colin having a great year in lacrosse as he is a match-up nightmare. He will join teammate Mac Pons at the University of Maryland next fall.
Christian Knight (Goalie, Sr., 6’, 190 lbs.) Christian enters his third year on the varsity. As a sophomore back up, Christian entered last spring as our most experienced goalie. However, one hour into his first practice, he suffered a serious thumb injury that required surgery. After a miraculous comeback, Christian became the permanent starter about half way through the season and had a fine year with 141 saves and a save percentage of 58.99. Christian’s cool and calm demeanor, coupled with his excellent play both in and out of the goal, provide the Lakers great comfort heading into 2013 as, with teammate Kolby Caplin, the Lakers are in good hands between the pipes. Christian will attend Cornell University next year to continue his education and lacrosse career. Aaron Leeds (Defense, Sr., 6’3”, 200 lbs.). Aaron has some of the finest stick skills a BL defender has ever had. He can perform magic tricks with his stick, both while checking an opponent or with the ball in his stick. He can create a ton of un-settled situations with his imposing style and is coming off an outstanding fall starting and staring for the MIAA Champion soccer team. Aaron is also a member of the BL MIAA defending Championship Hockey team and we are looking for him to have an excellent spring. Ben Levin (Attack, Sr., 5’11”, 185 lbs.) Ben joined the varsity for the first time last spring after two solid years on the JV. Ben is a tough, competitive attacker who is a skilled dodger and excellent shooter. Ben is blessed with a great lacrosse and athletic IQ that was on full display this fall as the setter on BL’s MIAA volleyball finalist squad. He is one of seven DI attackmen on the BL varsity this spring and will take his talents to the new DI program at Furman University in SC next fall. Bryan Lichtenauer (Midfield, Sr., 5’9”, 160 lbs.) Bryan, a face-off expert, enters his third year on the varsity. He won 108 out of 192 attempts for a 56.25 win percentage. Bryan is adept at popping the ball forward creating fast breaks while also being a quality ball handler and defender. Bryan, captain of the defending MIAA Hockey Champions in 2012, gives the Lakers one of the best, if not the best one-two punch in the league with fellow face-off expert Hunter Moreland. A recruited DI lacrosse player, Bryan will attend Ohio State next fall. Michael Lynch (Midfield, Sr., 5’10”, 165 lbs.) Michael, another of BL’s three year varsity performers, has been a mainstay on our top middie line since his sophomore year. He has also been part of the EMO group since then and scored an impressive 16 goals to go along with 7 assists last spring. Michael is extremely quick and can break a defender down with relative ease. We need him to improve his shooting percentage this spring but know he’ll provide energy and a dynamic play from the midfield. He will join classmate Kolby Caplin at Towson University in the fall.
RETURNING BOYS’ LATIN LETTERMEN – 2013 – Continued Hunter Moreland (Midfield, Jr., 5’11”, 190 lbs.) Hunter, another Johns Hopkins commit, enters his third year on the varsity. He has proven to be an excellent face -off specialist and was outstanding last spring winning 147 out of 213 draws for a sensational 69.02 win percentage. Hunter has a variety of face-off moves and is good at adapting on the fly. Hunter is a good ball handler and could easily stay on the field in all situations but is simply too valuable as an f/o specialist so we don’t want to wear him out. Hunter was another member of the Championship soccer team this fall, playing wonderful defense all fall. T Moyer (Attack/Midfield, Jr., 5’6”, 140 lbs.) T started his sophomore year on the varsity with great promise. A shifty, quick, and exceptional stick handler, T looked to give the Lakers many options last spring. Envisioning T as an “offensive specialist” by being a duel threat whether attacking the goal from behind or from up top. Those visions got put on the shelf as T suffered a serious shoulder injury that required surgery and the insertion of a few pins. However, T was able to come back late in the year and turned a solid midfield unit that included Casey Rees and Keegan O’Connor into an excellent one. We hope T can pick up where he left off last spring and has an outstanding year. T will take his talents to play Division 1 lacrosse at High Point University in the fall of ’14. Keegan O’Connor (Midfield, Jr., 5’11”, 189 lbs.) Keegan might have been the surprise of the 2012 season. Not sure what kind of player he was, Keegan simply continued to make plays all year. A tough, hardnosed player, Keegan is excellent on ground balls, plays physical and aggressive defense, and has a knack for scoring as his 9 goals attest. Earlier in the year, Keegan was not playing as much as he wanted. However, he kept grinding away and was so productive; the staff realized we needed him on the field more than just occasionally. We anticipate Keegan picking up where he left off last year and is ready for a great spring. Mac Pons (Defense, Sr. 5’11”, 175 lbs.) Mac, who has been a starter on the varsity since his freshmen year, is a returning captain. One of the best defenders in the MIAA, Mac has a complete game. He’s excellent on ball, off ball, and with the ball is his stick. He can play both close and pole, and is great with the ball in his stick in the open field. He will be asked to match-up with some highly capable attackers in the MIAA but BL is always confident when Mac is on the field, he’s a great player. Mac will join the Terps at the University of Maryland this fall.
Ben Pridemore (Midfield Sr., 5’11”, 170 lbs.) Ben enters his third year on the varsity. Ben had a tremendous season on last year’s team and, with running mates Tally Bruno and Michael Lynch, formed one of the finest midfield units in the MIAA. Ben is smart, left handed, quick and fast, and an adept scorer and defender. In short, he’s as complete a middie as there is in the league and is an excellent player. Ben will take his talents to South Bend next year to play for the Irish at the University of Notre Dame. John Reinitz (Defense, Sr., 5’10”, 170 lbs.) John made the varsity last spring after a solid pre-season demonstrating toughness, good stick skills, and the ability to play both close and pole defense. Unfortunately for John and BL, he suffered a severe hamstring injury as the playing season began and never fully recovered. John is pound for pound one of our strongest players and we anticipate him being a significant contributor this spring. John will join DIII lacrosse power Stevenson University next fall Casey Rees (Midfield, Sr., 6’2”, 175 lbs.) Casey, entering his third year on the varsity, really came on last spring, scoring 13 goals; He is an excellent defender and a mainstay on the EMD unit. However, Casey’s greatest strength has become his ability to get to the goal. Like he has repeatedly demonstrated on the basketball court, Casey has a great feel for attacking the cage. He is sneaky quick, deceptively strong, and is good from distance and in close. Casey has quietly become one of the best middies, not just on our team, but in the MIAA. He will join his older brother Matt, a ’12 BL grad, at the United States Naval Academy after he attends their Prep School, NAPS, for a year. Andrew Roswell (Attack, Sr., 6’2”, 185 lbs.) Andrew joined the varsity for the first time last spring after two great years on the JV. Some early season ankle problems, coupled with coaches’ indecisions about the best way to use Andrew meant he never “got started” in ’12. Andrew is a big, strong, and athletic player. Once we finally settled on using Andrew as an attackmen (he’s a solid middie), he showed flashes of some excellent play. Unfortunately, it was too late in the year to get him significant time. We look for Andrew to have a good year as he’s another DI attackmen on the Laker team who’ll take his skills to the University of Michigan’s fledgling program next fall.
RETURNING BOYS’ LATIN LETTERMEN – 2013 – Continued Chris Rubino (Midfield, Sr., 5’8”, 175 lbs.) Chris is entering his fourth varsity campaign. Chris, a three sport star (football and wrestling) is fast, tough, strong as an ox, plays very good defense, and can shoot the ball hard. Unfortunately, his promising lacrosse career has been derailed by injuries the past two springs. Like teammate John Reinitz, Chris fought through a brutal hamstring injury last spring that just never completely healed. His hamstring still gives him fits on occasion but he got through and entire football season and played very well. Chris is one of our many two-way middies but may make his most significant impact this spring coming off the wings on face-offs and as a defensive middie specialist. Gettysburg College will be lucky to have Chris next year as a student and lacrosse player. Greg Sheetz (Midfield, Sr., 6’, 170 lbs.) Greg enters his third year on the varsity. A PA native who lives with a BL family, Greg has made significant sacrifices to come to BL. A hard working young man who leaves nothing to chance, Greg has excellent skills in all facets of the game. Greg had an impressive fall as a captain/linebacker on the football team and looks to follow that up with a similar spring season. There is little doubt that Greg always puts the team first and that he will push himself and his teammates to be the best they can be. We are looking for Greg to have his best spring to date. Greg will continue playing lacrosse next year as a Statesman at Hobart College. Shack Stanwick (Attack, Jr., 6’3”, 175 lbs.) Shack, a two year starter on attack, was our leading scorer last year with an impressive 24 goals and 47 assists. As complete an attackmen as there is in the MIAA, Shack has remarkable skills. He can play with either hand, is a wonderful feeder as his 47 helpers attest, and has a deceptive shot. Shack is also a great EMO player and someone who has a wonderful feel for the game. The youngest of a family stacked with lacrosse players, Shack will become the 8th member of his family to play DI lacrosse when he enters Johns Hopkins in the fall of ’14. Jake Walsh (Attack, Sr., 6’2”, 195 lbs.) Playing varsity for the first time last year, Jake was used primarily as a sub. He is a big, skilled, and extremely smart left hander who has an excellent lacrosse IQ. Jake, a three sport performer (soccer and basketball), is coming off a great fall as a captain and defensive starter on the Lakers’ Championship soccer team. Jake is going to continue his lacrosse career at one of our nations’ best DIII academic institutions, Bates College in Maine where he will play lacrosse as well.

2013 SEASON OUTLOOK Boys’ Latin starts 2013 with a solid nucleus of 27 returning letterman. With so many veterans that include over 20 DI recruits and with depth and quality at every position, the Lakers are beyond excited for the 2013 season. Many of the young men who will play this year have been major parts of two straight MIAA “A” Conference Semi-Final appearances and hope that experience will help propel them further into the playoffs this spring. Starting at the defensive end, senior Mac Pons, will be starting for his fourth season. An experienced, excellent player and competitor, Mac’s greatest strength is his consistency. He leads by example and the Lakers are always confident when Mac is on the field as he seldom makes a mistake. Tom Brown (Sr.) is another returning starter and does an excellent job defending the inside and communicating to his teammates. BL is expecting big things from senior Aaron Leeds this spring. Used primarily as a sub last year, Aaron has great size, a remarkable stick, and an abundance of checks. He had a wonderful soccer season and we hope he follows that with a great lacrosse one. Seniors Taylor Davis, John Reinitz (injured most of ’12), and Chad Greenberg, a pole, all should have increased roles this spring and are collectively competitive young men. Junior Hugh Mosko, a transfer from Georgetown Prep, should see significant time as he started for the Little Hoyas as a sophomore. Senior Shazz Lee, juniors Evan Dohler, Griff Volker, Liam Burman, and Topher Lobo, and sophomores Myles Cohen, Dylan Gaines, and Matt Sacks all had good years on the JV and will compete for the few remaining varsity spots. BL has 12 midfielders, 10 of which are DI recruits, returning and should be an area of great strength. Seniors Michael Lynch and Ben Pridemore ran on our top line with junior Tally Bruno all last year. The trio scored 61 goals last season, all play EMO, and are very good players. Michael is an adept dodger and shooter with great feet, Ben is quick and fast with a deadly left hand, and Tally is big, fast, and has a powerful shot. Senior Casey Rees anchored our next unit that finished the year in fine fashion as juniors Keegan O’Connor and T Moyer solidified the group. Casey is deceptively strong and quick, Keegan plays with relentless effort, and T is a difficult match up as he’s an excellent dodger from out front and behind. Seniors Greg Sheetz and Walker Ensor can fill in anywhere on the field and are also excellent players who know the game, are good in the open field, and play hard. Senior Chris Rubino has been hurt for two years but he’s a terrific athlete who enters his fourth year on the varsity. Junior Nick Gesualdi had a great year last year as a sophomore playing defensive midfield and will likely play there this spring. This group of players can all play both ends of the field which may prove to be beneficial with the new NCAA rules. Face-off specialists senior Bryan Lichtenauer and junior Hunter Moreland both enter their third year on the varsity. They are skilled at their craft and are both good athletes who are capable of staying on the field in all situations. Juniors Austin Brown, Jimmy Parker, and Patrick McManus had fine years on the JV Championship game team and with classmate Brady Dashiel, will look to make an impact on the varsity. On attack, BL returns 2012’s two top scorers in senior Colin Heacock and junior Shack Stanwick. Each has started the last two years and they have great chemistry. Shack is primarily a ball handler and feeder (47 assists) while Colin is a powerful lefty who puts great pressure with his slashing style. Junior Colin Chell started many games last year and is very good without the ball and feeds off both Shack and Colin well. Seniors Ben Levin, Andrew Roswell, and Jake Walsh are good players in their own right and will be hard to keep off the field. Ben is a strong dodger and shooter, Andrew is an athletic, big young man who gets to the goal, and Jake is a big,
strong, left hander with a tremendous lacrosse mind. Juniors Michael Long and Ritchie O’Neil will battle sophomore Devin Shewell, the JV’s leading scorer in ’12, for an open spot(s) on attack. Seniors Christian Knight, Kolby Caplin, and Kevin Wolf all played on the varsity last spring. Christian and Kolby, both DI recruits to Cornell and Towson respectively, each started at one point during the year. Christian shattered his thumb one hour into his first practice last season and Kolby ably picked up the slack. However, the competition they never had in the preseason commenced when Christian returned five games into the season. The two split time for the better part of the next 6 games before the staff settled on Christian as the starter in the later third of the season. It was a tough choice since they are both so capable. Kolby has good size, is excellent out of the goal, and his quiet nature belies his competitiveness. Christian also has good size, is excellent out of the goal, and his cool and steady demeanor have a calming influence on his teammates. Kolby and Christian will battle again this spring for the starting job but BL is happy to have two great keepers. Kevin Wolf is very good in the goal and only needs to improve his play out of the cage to get into the mix. Juniors Dave Pisanic, hurt most of ’12, JV starter Liam Freirichs and sophomore classmate Tyler Steinberg will attempt to unseat the returning seniors. BL starts 2013 with high hopes and lofty expectations. If the team works hard, plays hard, and is unselfish, their potential is limitless. The MIAA “A” Conference has traditionally ceded to teams with an abundance of good seniors, something BL has. However, the defending Champs, Calvert Hall, and Gilman also have plenty of quality seniors. While those three schools may start the year highly ranked, discounting the other programs in the league is a recipe for disaster. Boys’ Latin has a storied history in high school lacrosse in the “A” Conference. It has been built on consistency of effort and competitiveness, something the 2013 Lakers hope to emulate.

2013 MIAA “A” CONFERENCE OPPONENTS As the 2013 season unfolds, the MIAA “A” Conference will consist of one conference of 10 teams; each team will play one game per team for a total of nine league games. Boys’ Latin, Archbishop Spalding, Calvert Hall, Gilman, Loyola, McDonogh, Mt. St. Joe, Severn, St. Mary’s, and St. Paul’s make up the “A” Conference. At the end of the regular season, the top six teams will enter the playoffs. 1 and 2 will get byes and await the winners of the 3 vs. 6 and 4 vs. 5 quarter-final match-ups respectively. With so few league games being played (starting last year, it marked the fewest league games played going back some 30 years) the league does not get started until the second Tuesday in April. Therefore, the MIAA “A” teams will all play many non-conference opponents in March and early April. With fewer league games, each contest will have a considerable sense of urgency. On paper, 2013 has the defending Champions, Calvert Hall, Gilman, McDonogh, and Boys’ Latin as the frontrunners to capture the crown. However, if the past is any indication of the future, there is an abundance of talented young men playing in the “A” Conference but, on paper those four teams are clearly the class. Calvert Hall, the reigning “A” Champions, graduated some dynamic players, but has quality and experience at each position (except in the goal) and an abundance of talent that has patiently been biding their time. Do-everything midfielder Stephen Kelly (Sr. UNC) along with fleet footed running mate Johnny Belz (Sr. MD) will patrol the middle of the field while big, strong, and tough defender Garrett Epple (Sr. Notre Dame) will anchor the defense. Pole Tyler Mayes (Sr. Towson) and slick attackmen Jordan Germershausen (Sr. UMBC) have been mainstays for the Cardinals and are excellent players at their respective positions. Gilman, a MIAA Semi-finalists in ’12, has some excellent returning players as well as a number of young men moving up the ranks from the JV, titlists in both ’11 and ’12. Attackmen Max Green (Sr. Harvard), Zeke Morrill (Sr. Prep School and then Georgetown in ‘14), and Tyler Rule (Jr. Notre Dame) are all experienced and very good players. Middies Riley DeSmit (Sr. JHU) and Will McBride (Jr. UNC) are dynamic players. The Greyhounds do have to replace some defenders but they should be able to score in bunches and have, what most consider, the best junior class in the league. McDonogh, a young but talented team in ’12, hopes to build on the experience from last year. Small, but lightning fast attackman Trey McGee (Jr. Denver), and middies Austin Frederick (Sr. Villanova) and Briton Vallis (Jr. JHU) can pressure any defense. Defender Danny Sweeny (Sr. Villanova) and goalie Nick Doyle (Sr. OSU) anchored a group that has established themselves as one of, if not, the league’s best. Boys’ Latin has over 20 DI recruits in their senior and junior classes and the majority of those players have been parts of two heart breaking semifinal one-goal losses in ’11 and ’12 and have high hopes for ’13. The Lakers have excellent players at all positions and have an abundance of depth. Defender Mac Pons (Sr. MD), goalies Christian Knight (Sr. Cornell) and Kolby Kaplin (Sr. Towson), along with attackers Shack Stanwick (Jr. JHU) and Colin Heacock (Sr. MD) will join a midfield that is deep and talented and includes two quality face-off men in Bryan Lichtenauer (Sr. OSU) and Hunter Moreland (Jr. JHU), as well as Ben Pridemore (Sr. Notre Dame), Tally Bruno (Jr. JHU), Michael Lynch (Sr. Towson), Casey Rees (Sr. NAPS), Keegan O’Connor (Jr.), Greg Sheetz (Sr. Hobart) and Chris Rubino (Sr. Gettysburg). Loyola and St. Mary’s both suffered some major graduation losses but always seem to re-load.
The Saints of St. Mary’s start the year with a new coach, Loyola High and Virginia grad, Ben Rubeor. He’ll rely heavily on three year starting goalie, Sklyer Morse, who will be playing in front of a young but talented defensive group that includes sophomore pole Kevin Fox (Penn State). Junior middie Cole Robertson (Towson) will be asked to shoulder a ton of the offensive responsibilities. Loyola, MIAA runner ups in ’12, suffered some severe losses but has a long, long history of having excellent players. Two senior DI face-off recruits in Kevin O’Toole (JHU) and Bradley Bennett (Army) will be asked to get the ball to attackman Devin McNamara (Sr. Villanova), a left handed finisher as good as anyone in the league, and super, sophomore middie Ryan Conrad (UVA). The remaining MIAA teams, Severn, Archbishop Spalding, Severn, and Mt. St. Joseph, like the aforementioned Saints and Dons, all have good players and will all be in the playoff picture. Severn, a quarter-finalist last spring, has been slowly and steadily improving the past few years under the settling influence and guidance of Coach Brian Wood. Senior middie Ben Bedard (JHU), a four year starter and as good as any in the league, and running mate Mike Dennin (Sr. Colgate) lead a team and offense that also has some very good defenders. Billy Bollhurst (Sr. Navy) and Kieran Jenkins (Jr. Georgetown) have solid experience and have been the prime parts of a strong unit. Archbishop Spalding, under second year and former DI coach Bear Davis, had flashes last year of some great plays. Senior mids Will Hirschman (Delaware) and Tim Leavitt (Mt. St. Mary’s) have flourished in Coach Davis’s system, as has senior defender Nathaniel Schilling (Hofstra). Another former DI coach, Dave Slafkosky, enters his third year at the helm of the Gaels of Mt. St. Joseph. The Gaels finished last year with a 12-8 record that included big league wins over St. Paul’s and McDonogh. Attackman Mike LeClair (Sr. High Point) is their most experienced offensive player and will be counted on to lead a young and talented underclass. On defense, the Gaels have a long history of playing quality defenders that has only been enhanced under Coach Slafkosky’s expertise. St. Paul’s is coming off a 3-15 season that included no league wins and has been called “the worst in the program’s history.” There is little doubt that the proud Crusader program will bounce back this spring and they have some quality players to help do so. Three year starting defenders, Travis Wood (Sr. JHU) and pole Michael Mayer (Sr. Georgetown), are good players. Travis is a big and tenacious lefty while Michael is a tall pole with a great stick that runs well. Middie BJ Matthiess (Jr. Michigan) is a talented and smooth player who is their best returning offensive played, and sophomore Carter Flaig (Princeton) is a quick lefty who started every game last spring. Michael Wynne (Jr. Cornell) transferred into SP this fall from Glenelg where he’s started on attack since being a freshman. It would appear that Calvert Hall, Boys’ Latin, McDonogh and Gilman will be ranked 1-4 in any order at the beginning of 2013 with a slight edge likely given to Calvert Hall and Boys’ Latin. Based on what happened in 2012, when teams played only 9 league games, a hot or cold stretch could seal someone’s fate. Since so few league games are played (in the past, the MIAA had 13 league games), it is honestly hard to predict who the playoff teams will be. However, as the past has shown time and time again, the MIAA “A” Conference is a great league that will provide lacrosse fans with wonderful play and competition. Since the advent of the plastic stick era, in early 1970, BL and Loyola have the most playoff appearances in the “A” conference. The Lakers have a tradition of playing hard, unselfishly, and with great spirit that the ’13 team will work hard to emulate. Those hallmarks of Boys’ Latin lacrosse teams are a source of great pride for a program that, since 2000, has played in six “A” Conference title games coming away with victories in 2002 and 2006.

LAKER RECIPIENTS of the C. MARKLAND KELLY AWARD The “Kelly Award” has been made annually for the last 65 years to the “Best High School Lacrosse Player in the State of Maryland”, and this is the only criteria for selection. Winners are selected by a committee chosen from the Maryland State Lacrosse Coaches Association, and selected media representatives. Prior to 1998, this award was presented to the “Best Player in the MIAA/MSA”. Since then, it has been awarded to the “Best Player in the State of Maryland.” YEAR 1945 1948 1955 1966 1974 1978 1980 1985 1988 2000 2007
