COACHING STAFF

CHRIS HEAD COACH GABRIELLI Chris Gabrielli became the eighth head coach of the Providence College men’s lacrosse program on June 21, 2012 and is embarking on his fifth season with the team. During the 2016 season, Gabrielli led the Friars to their first BIG EAST Tournament appearance since the conference began sponsoring men’s lacrosse in 2010. The season marked the second consecutive season under Gabrielli that players earned All-BIG EAST First-Team recognition. Jarrod Neumann ‘17 and Tate Boyce ‘19 were named by the league to the All-BIG EAST First Team. Will Mazzone ‘16 and Michael Perettine ‘16 were also named to the All-BIG EAST Second Team. The four Friar selections mark the most for the program in a single season. In 2015, Gabrielli coached Peter Badgley ‘15 to BIG EAST Goaltender of the Year and All-BIG EAST First Team honors. It marked the first time in program history that a Friar had been named BIG EAST Goaltender of the Year. Additionally, Jarrod Neumann joined Badgley on the All-BIG EAST First Team. The duo made history, again, as the first players in the program to earn All-BIG EAST First-Team honors. Over the past five seasons, Gabrielli has mentored one student-athlete to BIG EAST Goaltender of the Year (2015), three student-athletes to the All-BIG EAST First Team (2015-16), three student-athletes to the All-BIG EAST Second Team (2013 & 2016), one student-athlete to the All-New England First Team (2013), one studentathlete to the All-New England Second Team (2015 & 2016) and one student-athlete to the Preseason All-BIG EAST Team (2015 & 2016). Following the 2013 season, Gabrielli was named New England Coach of the Year. Gabrielli came to Providence College after spending the previous six seasons as an assistant coach at Duke University, where he worked primarily with the Blue Devils’ defensive unit. He also served as the program’s recruiting coordinator, under the direction of current Duke Head Coach John Danowski. While at Duke, Gabrielli helped guide the program to six NCAA Final Four appearances (2007-12) and two trips to the National Championship game (2007, 2010). The Blue Devils went on to win the National Championship in 2010. Duke also captured five ACC regular-season titles (2007-09, 2011-12) and four ACC Tournament titles (2007-09, 2012). Under the watchful eye of Gabrielli, Duke’s defense consistently ranked among the best nationally. Annually one of the stingiest defenses in Division I lacrosse, Duke was among the top 10 in scoring defense in 2007 and 2008 and has been among the top 25 every year under Gabrielli. In the 2010 NCAA finals, the Blue Devils held Notre Dame to just five goals in their 6-5 overtime victory, tying for the second fewest goals allowed in a NCAA championship game. During his six seasons with the Blue Devils, Gabrielli mentored seven players to 11 All-America awards. Some of these players include Nick O’Hara, a first-team AllAmerica choice and the 2008 William F. Schmeisser Award recipient as the national defenseman of the year, 2012 ACC Co-Defensive Player of the Year and four-time All-

Four of Gabrielli’s former student-athletes currently suit up for Major League Lacrosse squads, including Manley who was picked third overall in this year’s MLL draft. Gabrielli spent the 2006 season as an assistant coach at Butler where he served as the recruiting coordinator, while working primarily with the defense. Under his mentorship, three Butler defensemen earned All-GWLL honors. Gabrielli was a member of the coaching staff at his alma mater, Massachusetts, from 2003-05, helping the Minutemen to a 33-13 overall record with two NCAA quarterfinal berths. Gabrielli was a member of the practice squad for the Boston Cannons of Major League Lacrosse during the 2004 season before being drafted again by the Cannons in the 2005 Supplemental Draft. In 2004, he co-founded the Mid-Summer Classic, a high school lacrosse tournament currently held on the UMass campus. A four-year letter winner as a defenseman at Massachusetts, Gabrielli picked up 127 ground balls and added five assists in his career. As a senior in 2001, he captained the Minutemen to a 12-2 overall record and a share of the ECAC Championship, while earning Second-Team All-Conference and First-Team All-New England honors. A two-time winner of the Eric Sopracasa “Heart and Soul Award,” an honor presented annually to the UMass player who displays the most leadership and dedication to the program, Gabrielli went on to play in the 2001 North-South All-Star game and the MLL Major League Challenge.

PROVIDENCE COLLEGE

Responding to the needs of Rhode Island, the Dominican Order of Preachers made a special commitment to the state in 1917 and founded Providence College — the only institution of higher learning in North America that is conducted by the Order. Providence College’s rich heritage dates back to 1216, or the origins of the Dominican Order in Spain. Through the ages, the Dominican Friars became known as the “champions of the faith,” spreading the gospel message through the centuries into every corner of the globe. Today, Dominican Friars continue to spread the gospel in a wide range of remote areas of the world, to teach at every level of the United States educational system. With the Dominican tradition as its foundation, Providence College focuses on developing the entire person through its values-oriented education. The college seeks to complement a student’s knowledge with knowledge of his/her own values — values that will remain the foundation for sound judgement throughout a lifetime. To that end, Providence College aims to relate its curriculum to the problems of contemporary society, offering diverse programs of study that remain grounded in the liberal arts. Students may choose from some 60 concentrations ranging from computer science to labor relations to theatre arts. In addition, qualified students who wish to structure a program not specifically provided under the regular concentrations may develop their own program with the approval of the dean of the college. As part of the core curriculum, all students take a two-year, teamtaught course, Development of Western Civilization (DWC) which integrates the study of literature, philosophy, history and religious studies through the ages into a cohesive interdisciplinary unit. Situated just on the fringe of downtown Providence, the College’s location enables students to have easy access to the many social, cultural, educational and recreational amenities of urban life - the Providence Public Library; entertainment at the Providence Performing Arts Center; sporting events, entertainment and trade shows at the Dunkin' Donuts Center and the Providence Convention Center, Providence Place Mall and dozens of fine restaurants. With several other major educational institutions located in Providence, the city has become a hub of collegiate activity.

THE MISSION OF THE COLLEGE Providence College is a primarily undergraduate, liberal arts, Catholic institu-

tion of higher education. Committed to fostering academic excellence through the sciences and humanities, the College provides a variety of opportunities for intellectual, social, moral and spiritual growth in a supportive environment.

ROBERT G. DRISCOLL, JR. / ASSOCIATE VICE PRESIDENT / ATHLETIC DIRECTOR

PROVIDENCE FRIARS

Entering his 15th season as Providence College’s Associate Vice President & Athletics Director, Bob Driscoll has transformed and reinvigorated Providence College’s athletics program. Having established a vision of student-athlete success in the classroom and in the community while competing for championships, Driscoll maintains focus on leading, fostering and mentoring one of the nation’s most respected athletic programs. Over the past three years, Driscoll has been the architect of one of the most successful eras in the history of Providence College athletics. The Friars continued their success during 2015-16, with the men’s basketball team’s third consecutive NCAA appearance and first NCAA Tournament victory since 1997. The Friars prevailed with a dramatic, last-second victory over USC, 70-69. Friar standouts Kris Dunn (MIN) and Ben Bentil (BOS) both were selected in the 2016 NBA Draft, with Dunn becoming the highest Friar draft pick (fifth) since Marvin Barnes was selected second overall in 1974. Dunn also racked up multiple BIG EAST and national accolades in the process – for the second consecutive season he was BIG EAST Player and Defensive Player of the Year, Associated Press Second Team All-American, and NCAA Consensus Second Team All-American. Men’s hockey continued its run with its third-consecutive NCAA Tournament appearance, the second-most wins in program history (27), and first-ever Hockey East regular season title. The Friars boasted a 19-game unbeaten streak dating back to their title run in 2015 and were the first team NCAA hockey team to be unbeaten going into the winter break since 1995. Women’s soccer had its most successful season in recent memory, posting a program-best 13 wins and a dramatic run to the BIG EAST Championship Game. Women’s cross country and track squads continued their annual success in 2015-16. Cross country captured the BIG EAST and NCAA Northeast Regional Championships, with senior Sarah Collins capturing the individual BIG EAST crown as the Friars claimed the top-three positions. In the spring, track standouts Brianna Ilarda (3,000-meter steeplechase) and Catarina Rocha (5,000-meter) both claimed BIG EAST titles. Ilarda then went on to advance to the final of the NCAA Championships in the 3,000-meter steeplechase, finishing 10th overall. This impressive run kicked off when the 2013 women’s cross country team claimed the College’s second NCAA Championship. It continued with the men’s basketball team won the 2014 BIG EAST Tournament title and advanced to the 2014 and 2015 NCAA Tournaments. The men’s hockey team made back-to-back NCAA Tournament appearances (2014 and 2015) for the first time in program history before claiming its first NCAA Championship with a dramatic, come-from-behind win over Boston University on April 11, 2015 at the TD Garden. It marked the College’s third NCAA team title and its first in a men’s sport. A year after making it to the NCAA Second Round, the men’s soccer team won the program’s first BIG EAST Tournament title in 2014 and went on a run to the NCAA College Cup semifinal, marking the furthest it has advanced in the NCAA Tournament. Also in 2015, Emily Sisson became just the third Friar all-time to claim multiple NCAA titles in the same academic year, winning the NCAA Indoor and Outdoor 5,000-meter championships. She also set the NCAA indoor record in the 5,000 meters en route to capturing the 2015 BIG EAST Championship (15:12.22). Providence College finished second among NCAA Division I non-FBS/FCS institutions and No. 1 among BIG EAST Conference members in the 2015 Learfield Sports Directors’ Cup standings. Providence finished 54th overall among 293 institutions, which marked the College’s second-highest finish all-time since the Director’s Cup was founded (1993-94). Under Driscoll’s guidance, the Friars have finished in the top-100 of the Division I Learfield Sports Directors’ Cup standings seven times. Providence also has finished the year inside the top-125 12 times during Driscoll’s tenure. Providence College also finished an impressive 13th out of 106 eligible colleges and universities in the final 2014-15 Division I Men’s Capital One Cup standings. The men’s soccer and men’s hockey programs fueled the Friars’ ranking, with their performances during the 2014-15 sports calendar. Providence College is one of only two nonFBS/FCS institutions, and the only BIG EAST Conference full-time member, to crack the top-30 in men’s standings. For the second time in his tenure, Driscoll was recognized as the Under Armour I-AAA Athletics Director of the Year at the 51st Annual National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA) convention in June 2016. In June 2008, Driscoll also was named the 2007-08 Astro Turf Athletics Director of the Year for the Division I Northeast Region at the 43rd National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics Annual Convention. The Friars also have excelled in the classroom, with Providence’s student-athletes combining for an average GPA of 3.20. A year after a school-record six Providence College athletic programs received Public Recognition Awards in 2014 as part of the NCAA Academic Progress Rate (APR) program, three Friar teams earned the honor in 2015, as well as three squads in 2016. Multiple Friar teams have been honored in each of the 11 years the NCAA has given out the Public Recognition Awards. Epitomizing Driscoll’s drive for success in athletics and in the classroom, the 2013 women’s cross country team won the NCAA Championship, boasted three All-Americans, earned a NCAA Public Recognition Award for a third-consecutive season, was named the USTFCCCA Division I Scholar Team of the Year and senior co-captain Emily Sisson was named the BIG EAST Female Scholar-Athlete of the Year. In another example, 10 men’s hockey players were named to the Hockey East All-Academic Team following its 27-7-4 overall record in 2015-16. Aside from excelling in the classroom and competing for championships, Driscoll’s student-athletes are very active in the local community. Last year alone, Friar student-athletes combined for over 3,500 hours of community service. Driscoll was instrumental in positioning the College’s athletics program for success as a member of the reconfigured BIG EAST Conference, where the Friars compete against top-flight academic and athletic institutions in a new era of rivalries built on rich athletic traditions. The BIG EAST and its membership have a long-term television contract with FOX Sports and its marquee men’s basketball championship tournament at Madison Square Garden. Four of the leagues 10 members, including Providence College, competed in the 2016 NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship, which conference member Villanova captured the National Championship, securing its status as one of the premier basketball conferences in the nation. Additionally, Friars hockey competes in the Hockey East Association, considered by many to be the top hockey conference in the nation. One of the biggest impacts Driscoll has had on the Providence College Athletics Department, and the College as a whole, has been with facility development, construction and renovation. Since his arrival in 2001, Driscoll has transformed the College’s athletics facilities. Construction was completed in the fall of 2015 to build Chapey Field at Anderson Stadium, where the men’s and women’s soccer and men’s lacrosse programs play, as well as a new softball field and tennis courts. Men’s lacrosse finished with a 5-2 record at Chapey Field at Anderson Stadium in its inaugural 2016 campaign. In December 2015, the College announced a historic gift to begin Phase I construction of the Ruane Friar Development Center, which will include a men’s basketball training and recruiting facility in addition to the College’s academic services space. In September of 2013, a state-of-the art renovation and 30,000-square foot addition project to Schneider Arena was completed. The project included new locker rooms, new coaches’ offices, a renovated press box, a state-of-the-art video board and sound system, luxury boxes, as well as a new hockey and lacrosse strength and conditioning room. The Ray Treacy Track was built over the summer of 2013 to give the men’s and women’s cross country and track programs an improved place to train and race, as well as serving the whole Providence College community. Taylor Natatorium also underwent extensive renovations in 2013. 2017 PROVIDENCE COLLEGE LACROSSE • 29

Other facility upgrades that have highlighted Driscoll’s tenure include an $80-million renovation of the Dunkin’ Donuts Center, which serves as the home venue for Friars men’s basketball. The project was the result of Driscoll working strategically with lead officials in the City of Providence and the State of Rhode Island. The renovations enhanced the game-day experience by adding 20 luxury boxes, new seats, a video scoreboard, sound system, updated restaurant and concession stands, team store, locker rooms and new weight training/fitness areas. These renovations have enabled Providence College to serve as host for the First and Second Rounds of the 2010 and 2016 NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship. In September of 2012, renovations of Alumni Hall were completed. Alumni Hall, which is the practice facility for men’s basketball and the home of the Friar women’s basketball and volleyball teams, is now a state-of-the-art facility. Kicking off Driscoll’s vision for the improved athletic facilities footprint at Providence College, the Concannon Fitness Center, opened in August of 2007, adjacent to Lennon Family Field (Astroturf facility), which was completed in August 2005. The Fitness Center houses the Friars’ Jimmy Walker Strength and Conditioning Center for varsity student-athletes, as well as administrative and coaching offices, conference rooms and locker rooms. Additionally, the Concannon Fitness Center serves the whole Providence College community and houses the recreation sports staff, furthering the bond between the campus community and Friar Athletics. Next, the Canavan Sports Medicine Center was completed in August of 2008. Driscoll established the athletic fundraising philosophy and department that has been instrumental in making program upgrades possible. He and his staff have exceeded fundraising goals on a yearly basis, including a record $6.2-million in cash donations during the 2015-16 fiscal calendar. The additional revenue remains critical to building and supporting championship programs and providing the best opportunities to Providence College’s student-athletes. The funds Driscoll and his staff raise help directly support all 19 of Providence College’s Division I programs, the Friars Forever Fund and capital projects. In the past, Driscoll has served as the President of the Division I-AAA Athletics Directors Association. He also has served as First Vice President and Second Vice President for the organization. Additionally, Driscoll represents the BIG EAST’s athletic directors on the Student-Athlete Advisory Council, serves as a mentor for the Division I-AAA mentoring program and serves on the Hockey East Television Negotiations and Marketing Committees. He previously served on the NCAA Division I Management Council, the NCAA Ice Hockey Championship Committee (Chair 2010-11) and was the Chair of the BIG EAST Athletic Directors in 2011-12. Driscoll also was an NCAA Fellows Programs Executive Mentor. Currently, Driscoll serves on the BIG EAST Finance Committee with the league’s other presidents and also is a Chair for the Hockey East Board of Directors. Driscoll joined the Providence community after 14½ years in athletic administration at the University of California, Berkeley, culminating in serving as the Acting Executive Director for Intercollegiate Athletics and Recreational Sports. Prior to that, he was Cal’s Executive Associate Athletic Director and was responsible for the day-today operations of the department, as well as overseeing football, men’s basketball, men’s and women’s swimming, men’s and women’s water polo, rugby, strength training, equipment and the sports medicine programs. Driscoll was hired at Cal as the Associate Athletic Director for Student Services, a position he held for five years. He then assumed the position of Executive Associate Athletic Director, at which point he was responsible for the administration of 27 varsity sports, a staff of 250 and a $36 million budget. Prior to coming to Providence, he served as the Acting Executive Director for Intercollegiate Athletics and Recreational Sports. During his tenure, Cal won over 20 national championships and competed in the Citrus, Copper, Alamo and Aloha Bowls. The Bears also finished as high as 12th in the NACDA Directors’ Cup. Before arriving at Cal, Driscoll served six years (1981-87) as the Athletic Director and Chair of the Department of Physical Education, Recreation and Intramural Sports at Mills College in Oakland, Calif. Prior to Mills, Driscoll was Assistant Athletic Director and Head Baseball and Hockey Coach at Union College in Schenectady, N.Y. from 1977-81. Driscoll played hockey and baseball at Ithaca College (N.Y.), where he received a Bachelor of Science degree in physical education in 1974. He earned his Master of Science in Physical Education/Psychology of Sports from Ithaca in 1975. A native of West Concord, Mass., Driscoll was inducted into the inaugural class of Concord-Carlisle High School’s Athletic Hall of Fame (football, ice hockey and baseball) in 1993. He and his wife Cathy have three grown children.

REVEREND BRIAN J. SHANLEY, O.P. PRESIDENT On February 1, 2005, Providence College announced the election of Reverend Brian J. Shanley, O.P., to serve as the 12th president of the College. Father Shanley assumed his duties at the College on July 1, 2005, and succeeded Reverend Philip A. Smith, O.P., who served as the College’s president from 1994-2005.

THE BIG EAST CONFERENCE The BIG EAST Conference moves forward in 2016-17, the fourth year of its current consortium of 10 outstanding and revered academic institutions. Founded by Dave Gavitt in 1979, the BIG EAST reorganized in 2013 and entered a new era by returning to its basketball-centric heritage. The league’s 10 member schools—Butler University, Creighton University, DePaul University, Georgetown University, Marquette University, Providence College, St. John’s University, Seton Hall University, Villanova University, and Xavier University—embrace a constant commitment to academic integrity, athletic excellence and community service. Val Ackerman, who previously served as founding President of the WNBA, President of USA Basketball and U.S. representative to the International Basketball Federation (FIBA), was named fifth Commissioner of the BIG EAST in conjunction with the conference’s 2013 reconfiguration. Under her leadership, the BIG EAST has maintained its reputation for top-level achievement in athletics and has continued to be influential on the national intercollegiate landscape, with many conference and school administrators currently serving on key NCAA committees. Since its inception in 1979, the BIG EAST has been lauded as a leader in innovative concepts in promotion, particularly television, and that reputation continues with the conference’s relationship with FOX Sports. The BIG EAST has a fruitful multi-year partnership with FOX Sports and its national cable network FS1. FOX’s comprehensive coverage of BIG EAST men’s basketball includes the broadcast of all regular season games on FOX, FS1, FS2 or FOX Regional Networks, as well as the BIG EAST Tournament at Madison Square Garden, college basketball’s longest-running postseason basketball conference tourney held at the same venue. The BIG EAST and FOX also have established an annual five-game marathon in men’s basketball with all 10 teams competing on the same day in league competition. BIG EAST institutions are located in seven of the nation’s top 35 largest media markets, including New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., Indianapolis, Milwaukee and Cincinnati. FOX Sports platforms carry complete coverage of women’s basketball regular season play and the BIG EAST Women’s Basketball Tournament. Every Olympic sport championship is also carried on the network or digital platforms. The BIG EAST has also increased the visibility of its member school programs with the expansion of the BIG EAST Digital Network (BEDN). When the conference launched BEDN in 2014-15, the league became the first collegiate conference to be hosted on the FOX Sports mobile platform, FOX Sports Go, the app that provides live streaming of FOX Sports content. BEDN will carry 225 live events in 2016-17, with an emphasis on women’s basketball, soccer and Olympic sport regular season and championship events. The BIG EAST Conference became a reality in May of 1979 through the vision of Gavitt, the former Providence College men’s basketball coach and athletic director. Providence, St. John’s, Georgetown, Syracuse, Seton Hall, Connecticut and Boston College formed the original seven-school alliance, and within the span of just a few years the conference had become a national powerhouse in men’s basketball. While the composition of the BIG EAST evolved over the next three decades, the focus of its schools did not waver, reflecting a tradition of broad-based programs led by administrators and coaches who emphasize academic strength and fair play. In December of 2012, the seven BIG EAST schools that do not compete in FBS football—DePaul, Georgetown, Marquette, Providence, St. John’s, Seton Hall and Villanova—announced their intention to separate from the conference’s football-playing schools and form an independent association. On March 20, 2013, the seven schools reached an agreement that enabled them to retain the BIG EAST name and assume the old conference’s long-term pact with Madison Square Garden to host the BIG EAST Men’s Basketball Tournament, one of the premier events in college athletics. The schools also announced the addition of three distinguished institutions sharing the same academic and athletic values —Butler, Creighton and Xavier— and forged a landmark, long-term broadcast partnership with FOX Sports. The BIG EAST moved its headquarters from its original location in Providence, R.I., to midtown Manhattan in New York City to complete the transformation. The BIG EAST’s new era officially began on July 1, 2013, its effective date as the NCAA’s 32nd Division I conference. To complement its athletic successes, the conference launched BIG EAST Serves in 2014 to align the academic, health, leadership and service missions of the 10 member institutions. Initiatives housed under the BIG EAST Serves umbrella, such as BIG EAST Serves Day, the BIG EAST Career Consortium and the national partnership with the It’s On Us campaign against campus sexual assaults, reflect the conference’s commitment to developing the complete BIG EAST student-athlete and making a positive contribution to the campus communities of its member schools and conference’s headquarters in New York. In the fall of 2015, the BIG EAST hosted its inaugural Freshmen Fundamentals, a unique program designed to assist men’s basketball student-athletes in the transition from high school to college and the elite level of BIG EAST basketball. BIG EAST institutions boast high graduation rates for their student-athletes, and the league has always been able to say that many of its best athletes are also its best students. Ryan Arcidiacono, the starting guard for Villanova’s national champion men’s basketball team and the Most Outstanding Player at the 2016 Final Four, also was one of five finalists for the 2015-16 Senior CLASS Award in his sport for excellence in classroom, community, character and competition. DePaul women’s tennis standout Rebeca Mitrea was a conference nominee for NCAA Woman of the Year, an award that honors academic achievements, athletic excellence, community service and leadership. On the court, Mitrea is DePaul’s alltime leader in wins with 117. She competed in the doubles of the 2016 NCAA Tennis Championship. Mitrea also was honored with the Arthur Ashe Leadership and Sportsmanship Award from the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA). The conference, which crowns champions in 22 sports, had league teams earn a total of 24 NCAA berths and 42 individual NCAA invitations in 2015-16. Seven different national postseason championships saw multiple BIG EAST teams participate, including five teams in men’s basketball and three in women’s basketball. BIG EAST schools produced 12 CoSIDA Academic All-Americans, including six in soccer (four male, two female). Current BIG EAST men’s basketball programs have enjoyed extraordinary success over the years. Villanova won the 2016 NCAA Championship, its second in school history. Georgetown and Marquette also have won the national title. DePaul, Providence, St. John’s and Seton Hall have all made it to the Final Four. The BIG EAST placed three men’s basketball teams in the Final Four in 1985—Georgetown, St. John’s and Villanova—the only time this has occurred in NCAA history. Over the past 13 years, Butler, Georgetown, Marquette and Villanova have reached the Final Four, with Butler and Villanova making two trips. Xavier has advanced to the Elite Eight twice and the Sweet 16 four other times. BIG EAST student-athletes have achieved recent success in other sports, as well. A BIG EAST team has won the NCAA women’s cross country championship four of the last seven years (Villanova won twice; Providence and Georgetown once), with one runner-up finish (Providence). Creighton’s men’s soccer team has reached the NCAA College Cup in two of the past four seasons, with the Providence men advancing to the semifinals in 2014. In the 37 years since the original league opened its doors, BIG EAST teams have won 39 national championships in eight different sports with 144 studentathletes winning individual national titles in the league’s history. Since 2013, the BIG EAST has produced eight national champions. 2017 PROVIDENCE COLLEGE LACROSSE • 40

2016 RESULTS

SEASON REVIEW 2016 MEN’S LACROSSE

Record: 7-9 (1-5 BIG EAST, Tied for 4th Place) Head Coach: Chris Gabrielli Captains: Jarrod Neumann, Michael Perettine, Jimmy Cunningham, Will Mazzone • The Providence College men’s lacrosse team finished the 2016 season with a 7-9 record and a 1-5 mark in BIG EAST play. • The Friars finished in a three-way tie for fourth-place in the BIG EAST Conference final standings with St. John’s and Georgetown, but earned the No. 4 seed in the BIG EAST Tournament by virtue of tie-breaking procedures. This marked the first time the Friars advanced to the BIG EAST Tournament since the conference began sponsoring men’s lacrosse in 2010. • In the BIG EAST Semifinal, the Friars were defeated by No. 1 ranked and top-seed Denver, 17-8, on May 5. • Seniors Will Mazzone and Michael Perettine were named to the BIG EAST All-Tournament Team at the conclusion of the Championship. • Mazzone and Perettine were also named to the All-BIG EAST Second Team on May 3, while junior Jarrod Neumann and freshman goaltender Tate Boyce were named to the All-BIG EAST First Team. Neumann was a unanimous selection. The Friars’ four All-BIG EAST selections are the most for the program in a single season since the conference began sponsoring lacrosse in 2010. During Providence College’s seven-year stint as members of the BIG EAST Conference, seven players have earned All-BIG EAST honors, including this year’s list of honorees. Only three players all-time have been named to the First Team, and include Neumann, Boyce and Peter Badgley ’15. • Will Mazzone ranked first on the squad in scoring with 62 points on 39 goals and 23 assists. He recorded at least two points in every game, including a seven hat-tricks on the season. • Mazzone also moved into the all-time Friar ranking’s. He concluded the season ranked eighth in all-time career scoring (including two seasons at West Point – 2013-14) with 150 points, fifth in career goals (93) and 11th in career assists (57). Additionally, Mazzone finished the season just one point shy of becoming Providence’s all-time single-season points leader with his 62 points. • Freshman Brendan Kearns (Wantagh, N.Y.) ranked second on the squad in scoring and led all freshman in points with 40 (22 goals, 18 assists). • Junior Colin McKendry won 80-of-172 attempts at the face-off “X” for Providence for a .465 win percentage. Additionally, McKendry picked up 26 ground balls. Alex George and David Procopio also shared time at the “X”. George won 39-of-96 (.406) and Procopio won 22-of-63 (.349). • Juniors Jimmy Cunningham and Jarrod Neumann led the Friars’ defensive effort in caused turnovers with 20 and 19, respectively. Cunningham finished with 52 ground balls, while Neumann collected 42. All-BIG EAST First Team Jarrod Neumann Tate Boyce
