The PA Roughriders program had an impressive showing at last weekend’s Victory Events Fall Classic at the Delaware Turf Sports Center, winning two age class championships and sending five teams to the title games.
The 2026 and 2027 PA Roughriders teams both took home the Trophies with dominating wins over tough Dukes Elite and Native Lacrosse teams, respectively. Led by players from West Chester, Great Valley, Avon Grove, Coatesville, Downingtown schools and more, their aggressive play kept their opponents off balance.
The 2026 Roughriders squad outscores its foes, 42-2 in going 4-0. The 2027 squad also went 4-0.
The 2026’s received strong coaching from Scott Chisholm (Villanova), Jim Patton (Drexel), Paul Zelenak (Drexel and Episcopal Assistant), Raf Furey (Episcopal and Boston U) while the 2027’s are led by Tom Lavin, Burke Mcfillin (Downingtown East and Washington College) and Ryan Hilburn (Malvern and Boston U).
The 2022, 2025 and 2029 Roughriders teams also made it to the finals of their divisions.
