Athletes of the Year

Nick Marrocco

Division 1: Duxbury

The engine behind the Dragons’ run to the state title game, Marrocco stopped 73 percent of shots faced, making 362 saves in his career. His stellar play helped Duxbury concede only 3.5 goals per game. The National Honor Society member will attend Georgetown University in the fall.

Robert Treiber

Division 2: Medfield

The Tri-Valley League MVP and first-team All-American was the catalyst for the Warriors’ Division 2 state championship run. Treiber recorded a save percentage of 65 and posted a 5.2 goals-against average. The senior goalie will play for Tufts University.

Rogers Boylan

Division 3: Dover-Sherborn

The Tri-Valley League Defensive Player of the Year, Boylan was the heart and soul of the Raiders defense, scooping up 53 ground balls and registering two assists. A three-sport varsity captain, he plans on playing football at Bentley in the fall.


Hunter Arnold

Acton-Boxborough, senior


The senior attackman’s 66 goals and 39 assists helped fuel the Colonials’ run to their first Division 1 state title. A two-time Dual County League All-Star, Arnold was also named a first-team All-American. He plans to play lacrosse at Keene State College.

A senior captain from Foxborough, Baughan finished his two-year career as a starting goalie with a 22-9 record and two EIL championship titles. He was named a 2014 US Lacrosse All-American and will attend Skidmore College in the fall.

Brian Bissell

Medfield, senior

Perhaps the best faceoff man in the state, the senior midfielder won over 81 percent of the draws he took while scoring seven goals and dishing out two assists. The National Honor Society and Spanish Honor Society member will attend Williams College.

Morgan Cheek


The senior midfielder/attackman led Nobles to a 12-7 record. He finished with All-America honors after leading the ISL in both assists (46) and total points (90). His 44 goals were good for third in the ISL. Cheek will attend Harvard.

Chris Ciolfi

Xaverian, senior

The 6-1, 180-pound defender carried a Hawks defense that held 11 of its final 12 opponents under 10 goals. A two-time Catholic Conference All-Star, Ciolfi also registered one goal and seven assists. The senior plans to attend Northfield Mount Hermon next year.

Jay Drapeau

Westford, senior


A three-time All-American, three-time Dual County League All-Star, and two-time All-Scholastic, Drapeau torched opposing defenses to the tune of 86 goals and 56 assists. The attackman’s 445 career points ranks fifth all-time in Massachusetts. He plans to take his talents to Loyola University.

Matt Dziama

Wellesley, senior

The Baystate League All-Star fueled the Raiders offense, netting 42 goals and helping with 14 assists. A terrific two-way player, Dziama scooped up 92 ground balls, bringing his career total to 240. The senior will attend the University of Virginia.

Blake Frasca

Medfield, senior

Name a top midfielder, and more than likely this Tri-Valley League All-Star has shut him down. A second-team All-American, Frasca was a groundball machine, scooping up 107. Also a soccer captain, he plans to attend RPI for engineering.

Grant Gregory


A first-team Tri-Valley League All-Star and first-team All-American, Gregory netted 49 goals and 32 assists. The junior attackman helped the Raiders win the Division 3 state title in 2012 and 2013 while helping the team to the final this year. He’s committed to Boston University.

Ryan Hesseltine


The first-team All-American and two-time Dual County League All-Star netted 59 goals and dished 55 assists to help lead the Grey Ghosts to their best record (17-6) in over 10 years. For his career, the attackman finished with 210 points.

Charlie Mitchell

Waring, senior


The midfielder and captain closed out his lacrosse career by scoring 27 goals and recording seven assists en route to being named the MBIL MVP. Mitchell will attend Middlebury College in the fall, where he hopes to run cross-country.

Cody Mosgrove

Needham, senior

At 6-5 and 215 pounds, this senior’s imposing frame wreaked havoc on opposing offenses. A two-time Bay State League All-Star and All-American, Mosgrove lettered in his last three years. The honor roll student plans to attend Penn State in the fall.

Michael Panepinto

Needham, senior

A two-time Bay State League All-Star, Panepinto was crowned the league’s MVP following this season’s 101-point effort (63 goals, 38 assists). The senior midfielder also starred on the gridiron and is the school’s all-time leading rusher and scorer.

Greg Roder

Lincoln-Sudbury, senior

Despite missing five games due to injury, the two-time Dual County League All-Star collected 27 goals and 12 assists while leading the Warriors to the Division 1 North semifinals. Graduating cum laude, Roder was also the recipient of the National Football Foundation’s Scholar-Athlete Award.

John Sexton

Lincoln-Sudbury, senior

One of the most decorated athletes in the state, the long-stick midfielder is a four-time Dual County League All-Star, three-time All-American, and two-time All-Scholastic. For his career, Sexton had 21 goals and 31 assists. He will attend Notre Dame in the fall.

Liam Stauss

Duxbury, junior

One of the top defenders in the state, Stauss shut down opponents’ top attackmen game in and game out. The junior first-team All-American was a vital piece to a Green Dragons defense that held all 23 of its opponents to under 10 goals.

Jack Ulrich


A two-time first-team All-American, Ulrich made life tough for opposing offenses. Behind his stifling defense, the Harbormen conceded just 4.7 goals per game over their final 13 contests. The winner of the English Literature Book Award, Ulrich will attend the University of Pennsylvania.

Luc Valenza

Foxborough, senior

A two-time second-team All-American, Valenza is known for doling out vicious hits on both the lacrosse field and gridiron. The senior defender was a force for the Warriors, earning himself Hockomock League MVP honors. He will attend UMass in the fall.

Jack Wheeler

Xaverian, senior

After playing a vital role in the Hawks’ state title run a year ago, the senior midfielder was equally as impressive this season, scoring 35 goals and handing out 34 assists. A two-time Catholic Conference All-Star and All-American, Wheeler plans to attend Boston University.

Coaches of the Year

Pat Ammendolia

Division 1: Acton-Boxborough

Ammendolia led the Colonials to a 21-3 record and to the Division 1 state title -- the first in school history. In seven years at Acton-Boxboro, he has a 100-46 record. Ammendolia was a two-time lacrosse All-American at Eastern Connecticut State University.

John Todd

Division 2: Hingham

The Saint Michael’s College alum led the Harbormen to a 19-6 mark and a spot in the Division 2 state final. Over the past five seasons, Hingham is 98-24 under Todd’s tutelage. The Duxbury High graduate also played lacrosse at St. Michael’s.

Josh Wedge

Division 3: Hamilton-Wenham

In his first season at the helm, Wedge led the Generals to a 14-6 record, the CAL Baker division crown, and the Division 3 North sectional title. The UMass alum was previously an assistant at Hamilton-Wenham, Dover-Sherborn, and Wellesley.
