2012 Lacrosse Team Season Preview
The 2012 lacrosse team will be led by captains Sean Shaughnessy (Glens Falls/Glens Falls), Mason Agosto (Cary-Grove/Cary-Grove, IL), and Michael Carpenter (Saugerties/Saugerties).
The offense returns only a few from last season, but will rely heavily on the freshmen to jump in and contribute. Mason Agosto led the team and ranked in the top ten of junior college scoring last season with 71 points, and also is a pre-season JUCO All-American. David Klapp (Saratoga Springs/Greenfield) and Eric Plant (Guilderland/Guilderland) are the only other players returning with points on offense.
The defense is anchored by sophomores Sean Shaughnessy and Michael Carpenter. Shaughnessy and Carpenter have stepped up as vocal leaders both on and off the field. Freshman goalie Andrew Reilly (Bethlehem/Bethlehem) played great throughout the fall, and has earned the starting spot between the pipes for the Vikings this season.
The team has some very talented freshmen, transfers, and returners who will all be counted on to help achieve success this year.
