Coach’s outlook for 2019 season: “The 2019 Archbishop Carroll Patriots return 11 seniors from a district 12 championship and state qualifying season in 2018. New Head Coach Brian Santoleri ’08 has high hopes to repeat and make a run in the state playoffs. Carroll scheduled several strong non-conference programs including Easton, Penncrest, Marple, and Lower Merion before games against St. Joes Prep and La Salle. Even with losing a loaded ’18 class including 200+ goal scorer Adam Ritter (High Point ’22), Carroll returns key players across the board and prepping for a 2019 campaign.”
