Weston, Mass.—Head coach Jacob Kravitz recently announced the addition of six men’s lacrosse players to the Pride team. Kravitz feels that his two freshmen goaltenders, Tyler Beyor (Carthage, N.Y./Carthage) and Breandan Crane (Billerica, Mass./Arlington Catholic), are highlights to a talented group.
Beyor was considered a top goalies in his New York league, and has a “great deal of passion” for the game, said Kravitz. “He has quick hands and reflexes,” Kravitz continued.
Crane is a local product that will compete for playing time next season. He was a member of a competitive Arlington Catholic program. “Breandan has a lot of talent…he is a tall goaltender with great up field passing skills,” Kravitz said.
Regis College will add two defensemen to the team. Brian Cidado (North East, Mass./Oliver Ames) and Raymond Dunn (Saugus, Mass./Matignon) will contribute athleticism to a young lacrosse team. Kravitz plans to return the bulk of his team from the 2010 season, which included Stephen Bottex who led the team with 76 groundballs.
“He [Brian] is a well-rounded prospect with a great work ethic,” says Kravitz. Cidado was announced as a spring term honor roll student at Oliver Ames. Dunn is believed to be able add “toughness” to the Pride defense.
“He [Raymond] also adds speed and quickness,” said Kravitz. Also joining the team will be Matthew Molloy (Saugus, Mass.) from Saint Mary Regional High School and Dylan Reid (Marlborough, Mass.). “Matt is a hard working midfielder,” says Kravitz. Molloy will be one of many incoming players asked to contribute on both sides of the field.
Reid will join the lacrosse team having been a member of the Hudson High program. A smart and savvy player, Reid can be used as a utility player for Regis. His addition to the team will be greatly beneficial to Regis’ success in upcoming years.
Lastly, Matt Vogan (Belmont, Mass.) joins the team as a player with innate ability to lead. Vogan comes from a talented high school program that has prepared him for success at the college level. Kravitz intends to utilize Vogan at the attack position because of his ability to shoot with either hand.
Regis competed in its first varsity season in 2010, after playing the year before as a club program.
