This is one of a series of previews for the 2018 Philly lacrosse season

Archmere Academy

League: Diamond State Athletic Conference

Coach: Pete Duncan (15th overall, 5th at Archmere)

Last year’s record: 11-5, state quarterfinals

Key returnees:
Mitch Moyer, junior, attack (Binghamton)
Connor Smeader, senior, goalie
Ryan Whelan, senior, defense
Cole Bauer, junior, midfield
Luke Grant, senior, midfield
Jake DiBattista, senior, midfield (Elizabethtown)
Sean Kelly, senior, defense
Dominic Cipriano, senior, midfield

Others to watch:
Brian Neill, junior, attack
Nolan Collins, junior, attack
Vaughn DiBattista, sophomore, goalie
Mike diPretoro, senior, defense
Dave Dewees, senior, midfield

Coaches outlook: “Archmere will be a battle tested squad with a schedule that includes a strong out-of-conference slate plus new additions to the Diamond State Athletic Conference. We have big shoes to fill on defense but several guys are up to the task. Both of our goalies, each face-off guy, and five of our top eight points leaders from last year return.”

Coach’s outlook: “We will continue to work extremely hard to become the best possible team that we can. Our players have started the season with a tremendous work ethic and are really competing in practice.”
