Huge thanks to the Notre Dame lacrosse team and coaching staff for hosting Cavalier Lacrosse this summer. The boys had the opportunity to tour the locker room, attend a film session, and speak with the ND coaches and players about the life and expectations of a D1 lacrosse player. We also had the opportunity to conduct a full practice on the ND game field in preparation for a tournament the following day in Chicago. Go Irish!!
Special thanks to Coach Starsia and the Virginia lacrosse coaching staff for hosting Cavalier Lacrosse. The boys played in Klockner stadium during halftime of the Virginia vs Duke game. Incredible experience for the boys! Go Hoos!
I am thrilled to announce that Steele Stanwick, one of the greatest players to ever wear a Cavs uniform, will be joining our staff.
On August 14th, Steele will be doing a clinic for us, which will be one of several he will conduct. More details will follow.
In his first year at Virginia, Steele was named ACC Rookie of the Year after setting a points record for UVA freshmen with 58 points (36 goals, 22 assists). In his second year, he improved his total with 29 goals and 32 assists for 61 points, which was fifth amongst all ACC players that year. That year, Steele was named a Second-Team All-American. In 2011, he scored 32 goals and completed 38 assists, including an unprecedented 20 points over a three-game stretch in the NCAA tournament, leading the Cavaliers to their fifth NCAA championship. Steele was named a First-Team All-American and won the Tewaaraton Trophy as the nation's best college lacrosse player.
He was drafted 2nd overall in the 2012 MLL Collegiate Draft by the Ohio Machine. During the 2012 MLL season, he played in 9 games for the Machine and led all rookies in assists with 17.
