From Press Release
Cleveland State’s Andy German – a Radnor High grad and former St. Joseph’s Prep head coach and Villanova assistant – makes his head coaching debut this morning when his Vikings host Marquette at 11 a.m.
OFF AND RUNNING
The Cleveland State University lacrosse team opens its fourth season, and the entire DI men’s lacrosse schedule, by hosting Marquette. The game will be a matchup of first-year head coaches. German was named as the program’s new head coach this past August. German had served as an assistant coach at CSU since the program’s inception and was previously an assistant coach at his alma mater–Villanova.
THE PREP VS. THE PREP
One offensive weapon for Marquette is red-shirt junior attackman Griffin Fleming, who played for German at St. Joseph’s Prep in 2015 when the Hawks reached the PIAA championship game and fell to Radnor in double overtime. Fleming, a junior that year, has 15 career goals and 13 career assists.
SCOUTING THE OPPOSITION
Marquette comes into its season opener after three scrimmages in the past two weekends against Ohio State, Johns Hopkins and Richmond. The Golden Eagles are under the direction of first-year head coach Andrew Stimmel, who was most recently the offensive coordinator at Yale. Peter Henkhaus (21) and Connor McClelland (19) are the top returners in points. John Hulsman is back for MU after playing in the cage in every game in 2019.
