University of Virginia Lacrosse Season Preview

As a continuation of my most recent post, here is a look at a top division one lacrosse team, today’s is the University of Virginia:

Steele Stanwick ’12

Inside Lacrosse has UVA ranked #9 on their preseason poll and are projected to come in third in the ACC. However, I don’t see them having that great of a season. They will be in a similar situation that Syracuse found itself in last year. UVA graduated their three of their top scorers: Steele Stanwick (Loyola Blakefield), Chris Bocklett, and Colin Briggs (Bishop Hendricken). For the most part this will be a rebuilding year for the program. Hopefully, their new recruits can help restore them to the top of the loaded ACC conference.

This Spring, two of UVA’s top players come from New England Prep Schools. Junior middie Blake Riley attended the Governor’s Academy. The program has consistently won ISL championships and produced D1 players for the past decade. Senior attackman Charlie Streep also played his high school lacrosse at Loomis Chaffee.

Loomis Chaffee coach fights through cancer

October 05, 2011|By LORI RILEY, lriley@courant.com, The Hartford Courant

WINDSOR — — Being diagnosed with breast cancer wasn’t going to stop Bobbi Moran from coaching the Loomis Chaffee field hockey team this fall.

But after she was in a moped accident in August — well, one of her friends felt like they had to have a little talk with her.

“It was about a month and a half ago, just before preseason started,” Moran said. “I was laying in bed, I couldn’t really move anything. She was like, ‘Bobbi, enough already, you’ve got to slow down. Please, please take it easy. Take a leave of absence.’ ”

“I thought, ‘OK, but I don’t want to give up field hockey. These kids, I love these kids. They make me so happy. Is there a way I can do this, just the coaching thing, but not the work thing?’ ”

That is one tough coach. No way that there are any players complaining about running sprints.
