The Bryn Athyn College men’s lacrosse program kicked off the 2015 season today with a 12-8 win at Regis College in Weston, Mass.
The Lions have many new faces on the roster, but no one larger than the new head coach Johnny Mouradian, the former GM and coach of the Philadelphia Wings. Mouradian was hired at the end of the 2014 season and quickly overhauled the Lions. Mouradian came to Bryn Athyn with a long coaching resume in the professional indoor game and a successful career coaching the Canadian National Field Team.
