Head coach: Paul Brennan (second year)
Assistant: Matt Caione
Last season: 3-13
Returning starters: 7
Marquee players: Korey Beneway, Jr., G; Vincent Scarduzio, Jr., D; Joe Meyers, Jr., A; Dom Caporale, Sr., D.
On the verge: Henry Flacco, So., M; Stephen Flamio, Jr., M; Matt Haughney, Sr., M; Justin Delgado, Jr., M; Mike Telesco, Jr., A; Alphonse Sicignano, Jr., LSM.
Playing at the next level: None
Strong point: We return four of our top five long poles from last year and our goalie as well. At the midfield, we have added much needed depth that we have not had over the past few years.
Biggest concern: This season will be about continuing to come together as a team. Outside of our defense, we have added many new faces that are not yet used to playing together. We hope to be peaking come May.
Coach speak: “We have a great group of seven juniors that all started last year as sophomores and are committed to helping Carmel take the next step as a program,” Brennan said. “We have added much needed depth and athleticism at the midfield, including multiple transfers and tremendous athletes who have not played much lacrosse in the past, but have thrived in other high school sports at Carmel. Under the valuable leadership of senior Dom Caporale, this team has come together with a single goal – make the postseason.”
