Boys lacrosse: Trumbull gears up for FCIAC season

The Trumbull High boys lacrosse coach Jim Kammerman graduated 16 players from a year ago, when the Eagles posted a 10-8 record after splitting a pair of state games.

“Although inexperienced and young, we have a lot of good players ready to step in,” Kammerman said. “This year’s team will be led by senior captains Kyle Tesie, a faceoff specialist, Spencer Hallock on defense, Mike DeVito at midfield and Jimmy McEwan as a defensive midfielder.

“In addition to the captains, senior goalie Jake Bova will be called upon to replace three-year starter Danny Forren (Limestone College) and secure the defense.

“Junior Danny Hoffman (attack) and sophomore Peter Raverta (midfield) will be expected to deliver both scoring and assisting. Senior Jack Fairfield (attack) and juniors Jake Liebowitz (midfield) and Trevor Arganese (attack) will be called upon to step in and produce immediately.

“In addition, we have a group of young and talented players that will be expected to make significant contributions with juniors Spencer Biebel, Ryan Jones, Gio Paolino, and sophomores Alec Neubauer, Michael Nevins and Luke Kammerman.

Trumbull will open its FCIAC season on Tuesday, April 5, when Wilton High visits McDougall Stadium at 6:30 p.m.

“It’s no surprise to expect the FCIAC to be one of the most powerful conferences, led by the usual suspects Darien, New Canaan, Ridgefield and Greenwich with Staples chomping at the bit,” Kammerman said.

“With coaching and player turnover at some of FCIAC schools there seems to be a bit of a log jam in the middle of the pack, including St. Joe’s and Fairfield Ludlowe leaving a couple of spots up for grabs to make the FCIAC playoffs.”
