Coach’s outlook for 2018 season: “With the 2018 lacrosse season upon us, the Great Valley boys are eager to take the field to defend their position as a top contending team in the Ches-Mont league. Although the team graduated a group of talented seniors, the program is excited to welcome 19 freshman players to the GV lacrosse family this year. Players have stepped up across grade levels and have been working hard in the off-season to show up strong in March. The 2018 Patriots Boys Lacrosse team is looking to build off of a successful 2017 season where they were barely edged out in an overtime playoff contest by a very talented Downingtown East squad. The lacrosse team and the staff would like to thank the Great Valley community for their continued support of the program. Best of luck to all of the spring sports teams this season, and ‘Go Patriots!’”
