Returning last year for his ninth season overall as Head Coach of the Glens Falls High School Lacrosse team (after taking the 2013 and 2014 seasons off), Tim Northrop guided the Indians to a 9-1 regular season record and Foothills league championship. The Indians finished 2015 with an overall record of 15-4 falling one goal short to Greenwich in the Section 2 Class C championship game with a score of 10-9.
The team is off to a strong start in 2016 defeating Roundout Valley, the defending Section 9 Class C champion, on April 2nd by a score of 12-7. Next up for the Indians is Vermont’s Mt. Anthony Union on April 5th. The Indians’ remaining non-league game is an April 10th match-up with Canton Central of Section 10.
Coach Northrop offered that the Glens Falls 2016 roster is primarily comprised of Juniors, and completed by a small, but important group of seniors. Players identified by Coach Northrop as anticipated to be significant contributors are:
- Andrew Stamatel, Jr. Midfielder. A big physical midfielder who can create his own shot as well as distribute.
- Andrew Bulmer, Sr. Attackman. Bulmer’s role may change from finisher (47 goals in 2015) to feeder with new players around him on the attack.
- Reed Miner, Sr. Defenseman. Great feet and good hands make Reed a strong shut down/take away defender.
Coach Northrop concluded, “Our perennial goal is to compete for both a Foothills and Sectional Championship. We hope to put ourselves in a position to do so again in 2016.” For more information on Glens Falls Lacrosse, visit: http://www.glensfallslacrosse.com/site/
