Strong Start to 2016 Season

Posted: May 2, 2016 by dannylaf in Main

The 2016 season got off to a great start with a strong showing in Huntsville this past Saturday. In the season opener, the Warriors played tough on both ends of the floor. Halfway through the first period, Wyatt Craik (1G, 1A) was able to get the game’s first goal and the Warriors were able to hold the lead for the rest of the game. The final score was 4-2, with David Cormack, Matt Andersson and Chris McDonald with 1 goal each, while Darren Elliott had two helpers, and Austin Tracogna, Jacob Twohey and Adam Allman all with one. Allman had a great game between the pipes with some crucial saves late to hold the lead. The full boxscore can be found on here.

The Warriors are in Peterborough on May 7 (Saturday) at 7pm. For all live updates of the Warriors games, check out our twitter page @warriors_jrc.

Warriors under new management

Posted: January 6, 2016 by dannylaf in Main

For the first time since the team moved from West Durham in 2011, the Whitby Warriors will be without a familiar face. Gary Mark, a former Junior A Warrior, has stepped aside to concentrate on personal goals and has handed over the team to a former player along with an up and coming Coach/GM in the Whitby organization. Gary has spent the last 5 seasons promoting the game of Lacrosse through the Warriors and his own website lacrosseinsidethegame.com, but feels the timing is right to make the transition.  The Warriors, who composed a record of 46-49-1 under Mark’s leadership, are looking to get back to the top end of the standings after a couple of disappointing seasons in 2014-2015.

Taking over will be Jason Wiswell who has spent over 20 years as an official at the Junior-Major level and has also been coaching his way up through the Whitby Minor Lacrosse system with much success.  Jason will take over as the Warriors’ new Head Coach and General Manager and looks to make an immediate mark in 2016.

Wiswell will be joined by former player Danny LaFontaine who hung them up after the 2013 season.  LaFontaine will be assisting as Coach and GM and will also be working behind the scenes on promoting and marketing the team through website and social media vehicles.

On the bench with Wiswell and LaFontaine is Paul Gilligan, a former player as well. He will be returning for his second year as assistant coach for the team.

All coaches are really excited for the 2016 season to start.
