A returning US Lacrosse All-American, Kevin Hill, has been one key to the success of the Webster Thomas campaign thus far this year. With 49g-20a this year and a four year varsity record of 155g-62a, the senior, planning to go to Penn State University next fall, leads the team in goals and points.

Scoring points in every game for the Titans (10-2), he contributed four goals in their win against Fairport, ten points against R-H and eight points in the Titan win against McQuaid Jesuit.

Thomas Head Coach, Rob Ruller says: "Kevin is one of the toughest competitors I have ever coached. His intensity is contagious on the field and his willingness to lead by example is a big reason we have been successful. He takes great pride in following the tradition established by so many of the great leaders in the Thomas program. He understands what it means to wear the uniform and compete for the Thomas program. It's been a pleasure to watch him have so much success.

Kevin Maguire

Senior goalie Kevin Maguire is a three year starter for the Panthers who will be off to play at St. John`s next year to play for another Pittsford alum, Jason Miller. In his three years he has seen almost two thousand minutes in the goal and has a career record of 301s-206ga (59%). This season he currently stands at 65.6% with eighty saves on a team that, on average allows opponents just 4.5 goals per game. The Panthers are currently 13-0, and Kevin has contributed seven games where he has held the opponents to three goals or less.

Head Coach Andrew Whipple says: "Kevin has worked extremely hard this year to put himself in a position as one of the top goalies in the area. He has done a great job stopping the ball this year and leading our Defense."

After playing limited time last year as an eighth grader, freshman goalie Chayse Ierlan has grown up quickly in order to help the Blue Devils create a 12-0 record thus far. Like Maguire, he has a 65% save record this year with 77s/41ga on a team that has allowed opponents an average 4.5 goals per game.

With a goal deferential of near ten goals on average, no team, thus far has hit double digits against Victor. Chayse has had six games this year where he has held the opponents to three goals or less.

Head Coach Jim Andre says: "Chayse is a goalie who consistently displays the techniques both in and out of the crease that make him mechanically sound. At the same time, he has the ability to track the ball with quick reactions and get in front of shots."
