AUSTINBURG TOWNSHIP —
The 2014 Grand River Academy Lacrosse Team promises to do a lot of just that, winning, especially coming off of a poor 2013 season winning only one game. With a new coaching staff and new playbook head varsity lacrosse coach Michael O’Keefe is optimistic.
“Great things can happen this year, with outstanding senior leadership, and an experienced squad, the team should perform at a very high level, and I’m expecting a successful 2014 season,” O’Keefe said.
This season the backbone of the team being formed by post graduate and captain Benjamin Bershad of Massachusetts; post graduate Patrick Weferling of Maine; seniors Alex Shober, Ben Triulzi and Carl Behling of Pennsylvania; seniors Elija Hunt and Collin Rinaldi of Ohio; senior Eric Leveaux of California; senior Johnny Knapp of Virginia; and senior Isaac Seger-Brown from Michigan. Most of these students have played for multiple years.
“Grand River Academy is ready for a great season; our team being mostly experienced upperclassman, having above a 500 season is very likely,” Bershad said.
With practices starting in a few days, the only thing left to do, is hit the field.
