This is one of a series of previews for the 2011 Philly lacrosse season

Coach’s Outlook for 2011 season:
“We only graduated 4 seniors, but we are still a young team with several sophomores and freshmen who will be potentially stepping into starting roles. We have a mix of grade levels and experience and need to continue to work on coming together as a team. Being one of the schools without turf, it’s been difficult trying to prepare for the season, as we’ve been forced indoors more than we’ve been able to be on our field. We have a lot of work to do, but we have some very promising players who will hopefully step up and lead the team in the right direction. Our goal is to improve on our 7 wins from last year and continue to become more competitive in our SOL American Conference.”

Coach’s Outlook for 2011 season:
“We are a young team and just hope to gain experience like last year. Overall, we expect strong competition in our league and just hope to develop teamwork and strategy throughout the season as well as continue to gain momentum.”
