St. Thomas Aquinas College Men's Lacrosse athlete Briele Caples was named the East Coast Conference Preseason Co-Offensive Player of the Year.
The senior attack from Rochester, NY tallied 44 goals and 68 points for the Spartans in 2017. His assist total of 24 was among the conference leaders as well, coming in a tie for fourth. In addition, the Second Team All-Conference pick also finished in the top-10 in Division II with 4.53 points per game (7th) and 2.93 goals per game (10th).
STAC went 5-10 last season, but the team's preparation and hard work since their inaugural season of 2 years ago, have been key factors in the program's quick development under Head Coach John Carrozza.
St. Thomas Aquinas opens their 2018 campaign at Spartan Field on Sunday, February 25th in a 2:30pm tilt with American International College.
