Leary named rookie of the year for men’s lacrosse

Pat Leary ’21 was recently named Commonwealth Coast Conference rookie of the year for men’s lacrosse.

Leary compiled a league-leading 51 goals and ranked first in man-down goals (4), setting a new program record, and second in the conference in total points with 73. “Pat has been a tremendous boost to our team,” said head coach Pat Cooney. “Not only scoring goals, but distributing the ball and, as the year went on, registering more assists as the slides came.”

Joining Leary on the all-conference squad are Andrew Fera ’18 (second team attack), Brendan Kelly ’21 (third team midfielder), Mike Mongelli ’19 (third team midfielder) and Ethan Robson ’20 (third team midfielder).

“Overall, we are thrilled that Pat, Andrew, Brendan, Ethan and Mike have been recognized as all-CCC honorees,” Cooney said. “Our entire team takes great pride in the recognition of these five men.”

Salve Regina (11-6, 4-4 CCC) will travel to face Western New England University in the semifinal round of the conference playoffs at 4 p.m. Tuesday, May 1.
