NCAA Lacrosse: Syracuse Men’s Lacrosse Lost Seven Top Seniors To Graduation In 2011, Including The Nation’s Best Goalie John Galloway

Galloway finished his career as the NCAA record-holder for wins (59) and minutes played (3,776). He helped the Orange to a 60-8 record during his four seasons. In 2011, Galloway recorded 147 saves, a .572 save percentage and broke his own school record with a 6.70 season goals-against average.

Syracuse Men's Lacrosse Goalie John Galloway was named the nation’s best goalie for the second consecutive season by the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association.

When Syracuse begins preparing for the 2012 season with spring practice in January, it can finally start rebuilding. The Orange will have a little more than a month to fill seven large holes before opening the season at home against Albany on Feb. 19.

The Orange lost seven talented seniors in May—none more important than goalie John Galloway. For the first time in four years, he won’t be the backbone of the Orange defense.

The Orange also graduated close defender John Lade, long-stick midfielder Joel White, midfielders Jeremy Thompson, Jovan Miller and Josh Amidon and attack Steven Keogh.

Syracuse will be young, but it’s still expected to be a force. The team was picked to win the BIG EAST Conference in the 2012 Inside Lacrosse Face-Off Yearbook preseason coaches’ poll, is ranked No. 7 in the country and had three players selected as preseason All-Americans.
