The Wagner men’s lacrosse program welcomes 18 newcomers into the fold for the 2015 season, a group that has been blending with the Seahawk returnees throughout the early morning fall practice sessions under the direction of head coach Matt Poskay, who enters his fourth season on Grymes Hill.
This season’s crop of first-year players is comprised of 17 freshmen and one sophomore transfer and includes six midfielders, six defensemen, five attackmen and one goalie. Poskay and his staff attracted student-athletes from five different states, headed by eight who hail from Maryland, five from New Jersey, three from New York and one each from California and Virginia.
“I believe the recruiting class that we brought in, addition to being high on quantity, is also extremely high in quality,” said Poskay. “This is a very balanced class in every way and deep in all three areas of the field. We addressed many of our needs and the new guys are doing a tremendous job of melding with our veterans, pushing each other, each day here during the fall.
‘This is far and away the deepest and most talented roster that we’ve assembled, and I’m excited and expecting that this group will do big thing this coming spring,” Poskay added.
Two of the newcomers include:
*Attackman Andrew Streilein (Lenape), an All-Phillylacrosse.com South Jersey pick who had 59 goals and also was named US Lacrosse All-American
*Midfielder Aaron Denesevich (St. Augustine Prep), who had 16 goals.
