NCAA Lacrosse: Lehigh Men’s Lacrosse Head Coach Kevin Cassese Discusses 2011 Season And Upcoming Season (Video)

Lehigh Men’s Lacrosse Head Coach Kevin Cassese takes a look back at the 2011 season, while touching on the David DiMaria-Dante Fantoni duo, Ty Souders’ tryout, a sneak peak at next season and more. The Mountain Hawks advanced to their first Patriot League Tournament since 2006 last year and look to build upon that success heading into a highly-anticipated 2012 campaign.

It’s been a few months since the season ended. How would you assess 2011?
Coach Cassese: Looking back to 2011, it was a solid year overall. We did some things in the program that we haven’t done before, certainly while I’ve been the coach here. We beat Navy for the first time in almost one hundred years. That was a huge win for the program, not only for the current guys, but also for the alums and anybody who has ever worn the Lehigh jersey. We made it to the Patriot League Tournament for the first time since I’ve been the coach here. It was also the first time that anybody who is currently in the program has made the tournament, so definitely some major steps in the right direction. Certainly not where we want to be; we haven’t met all of our goals, but we’re still working towards them. I am extremely appreciative of the seniors who graduated last year. We only had six of them, but they certainly helped take us to a place where we hadn’t been before. It was a good year, but certainly not the be-all, end-all of where we want the program to be.
