PHILADELPHIA – The University of Pennsylvania’s head coach of men’s lacrosse, Brian Voelker, has announced his Class of 2012. These athletes are on campus and have begun fall workouts with the current team, and they will be freshmen on this year’s squad.
“I am very excited to add this group to our program,” said Voelker, who enters his seventh season with the Quakers. “I feel there are some outstanding lacrosse players in this class who will help us win a lot of games. We addressed some needs on the defensive end, and really helped our depth on offense. In addition, these guys come from some of the top high school programs in the country, and have played in big games. They are bright and driven young men, and I expect them to help us reach our goal of winning the Ivy League.”
This year’s squad features a pair of US Lacrosse All-Americans from last year — goalkeeper Joe Hegener and attackman John Conneely — and several players who were teammates of current Penn players in high school.
The Quakers have gone 6-7 (3-3 Ivy League) each of the last two years, after earning NCAA Championship berths in both 2004 and 2006. This spring, they will return 23 letterwinners and 12 out of 13 starters from a year ago.
