From Press Release
Under the leadership of new Head Coach Todd MacFarlane, Westtown Boys’ Lacrosse has shown great improvement in the 2018 season. Led on the field by senior captains Jodany Baltazar, Trent Kellner, and Pierce Eldredge, the Moose have established a balanced attack and stingy defense.
Coach MacFarlane is far from content and knows the competition will only get stronger as the season progresses. “Our only focus is on getting better each day. I’m proud of the work that the boys have put in, but we have a long way to go and we’re far from a finished product.”
New coach Todd Macfarlane
This year Westown welcomed Coach Todd MacFarlane.
