Lancer Laxmen Collect Impressive Post-Season Honors

After having their 2015 season end considerably sooner than any of them had hoped, several members of the Londonderry High boys’ lacrosse team received all-state recognition from the New Hampshire Division I coaches.

First-year coach Sean LeBlanc and many of his Lancers were easy to find in the 2015 D-I all-state listings.

LeBlanc claimed the Division I Coach of the Year award.

LeBlanc led his LHS crew through a tough start to the regular season – going 2-3 in their first five matches – to an  impressive 13-4 final regular season record and the fourth seed in the tough first division.

But after receiving a first-round tournament bye, the Lancers saw their championship hopes evaporate with a 10-8, quarterfinal-round loss to the number 10 Souhegan High Sabers from Amherst on the Lancers’ own home field.

First-Team All-State recognition went to senior standouts Matt Rimol (a defender) and John Derhak (a midfielder).

Second-Team All-Staters included senior Lancers Shayne Holland (middie) and Lewis Carroll (middie) and their junior teammates Dave Wiedenfeld (attack) and Nick Donnelly (defense).

The Londonderry contingent’s one and only honorable mention all-state selection was battle-tested senior midfielder Andrew Mitchell.
