Downingtown East Boys’ Lacrosse

League: Ches-Mont League

Head Coach: Joe Horvath (1st year)

Assistants: Pete Carozza, Brendan Staudt, Owen Mulhern, Eric Rankel

2019 Record: 11-13, 2nd consecutive year qualifying for PIAA State Tournament

First Game: Saturday 3/21 at Springfield (D)

Key Newcomers:
Bo Horvath (9th, Midfield)
Bryson Kolinsky (9th, Attack)
Sam Barton (9th, Defense)

Outlook: We will have a nice combination of youth and experience, and plenty of athleticism. But, graduating players like Zach Lee (Syracuse) and Brian Miller (Bucknell) leave notable gaps to fill. We will put in the effort to recover from those losses, generate new team chemistry, and compete. Our goals are to win the Chesmont League, fight for a place-finish in the District 1 tournament, and compete in the PIAA 3A State Tournament.
