via WRUF web site – picture from the article (article by Sophia LaFrance)   Excerpt: The UF Men’s Club Lacrosse Team has had a fantastic regular season with a record of 10-2. This has been one of most successful seasons for the program. The last time the Gators had such a season was back in 2010 with a regular season record of 9-3 under Coach Ryan Winters. Now, for the first time in seven years, the team has been able to set and accomplish goals they can achieve. This season, the Gators, with a strong underclassmen presence and new coaching staff have been able to revamp the team. Freshman Parker Kaleo talks about his experience as a new member of the team. This year, former Gator Lacrosse player and current head coach, Garrett Hanrahan took over the Lacrosse program and focused on reshaping the team. Last year, the Gators had a transition season under Alex Breslin after long-time coach Ryan Winters retired. Coach Hanrahan was hired as the head coach and offensive coordinator back in May of 2016. Hanrahan has had a 13-year playing career starting from youth in Virginia to his four-year career at UF. During his time in Florida, he also was the captain for the team his senior year. Florida also hired former Gator, Tom Rayburn, as an assistant coach and defensive coordinator. Rayburn has coached lacrosse for 10 years and has coached youth sports at all levels for 20 years. During his time at UF, he earned his commission in the United States Army though the university’s ROTC program. As a career Army Officer, he served the United States for 26 years.   Read the rest HERE  (there is a lot at the link!)
