Identical in record and fashion, the 2016 Chestnut Hill College men’s lacrosse season finished with a series of victories that propelled the Griffins to a respectable 6-7 overall record and a 4-4 finish in the East Coast Conference (ECC).
Junior attack Alec Dambach (Howell, N.J.) was the star of the show, collecting the team’s Most Valuable Player (MVP) honors and a selection to the All-ECC Second Team en route to tying Scarlet and Gold great Michael Melnychenko ’14 for the program’s all-time single-season point total of 57 (37 goals and 20 assists). Fellow captain, senior defenseman, Derick Darnulc (Baldwin, N.Y.) was also an All-ECC Second Team selection, earning his fourth straight all-league honor on the strength of seven points (four goals and three assists), 29 ground balls, and 12 caused turnovers. Senior defenseman James DeCarlo (Conshohocken, Pa.) earned the men’s lacrosse Coach’s Award.
