MCLA Div II Lacrosse: Cal State Fullerton Men’s Lacrosse Appoints Former UCSB Middie Christian Wheeler As Head Coach For 2012-13 Season
He has single-handedly been running our fall ball practices with efficiency and poise. It was a no-brainer for us to extend this offer to him, “says Paul Morgan, the team’s head administrator.
“As the new Head Coach of the Fullerton Titans men’s lacrosse team is a very exciting venture that I am taking very seriously. Although this is my first experience in coaching lacrosse at the collegiate level, I am very confident in my ability to lead this team to a successful season and to continue the high level of play that Fullerton has been able to produce over the last several years. This year’s team has a very different look than this Fullerton team had last year. This year’s team will have to be much more team oriented and will have many players making an offensive and defensive impact in the games. We are looking to shut teams down with our strong defense, transition with our players that have the ability to push the break, and to possess on offense and work for the best shot. We have had a many changes to our roster from last year and are looking to a new group of players to lead this 2013 Titan team offensively, but the confidence level is still high in Fullerton as we look to have another very successful season”, said Wheeler in regards to his new position.
This year’s Fullerton men’s lacrosse team definitely has a different look than it did last year with a lot of new players looking to lead the Titans to a successful season. The strength of this 2013 Titian team will be its defense. Anchored by a first year starter at goalie, Trevor Wada, the Titans will have a battle-tested veteran group on the defensive end of the field. With senior Captain and three-year starter, Paul Morgan, two-year starter and sophomore Richard Morrison who won 2nd team all-conference honors last year, second year player and Captain Austin Ray, all down at close defense, attack men will have trouble getting to the middle of the field for shots. Up top defensively, four-year starter, senior Captain LSM Kody Kareta who also won 2nd team all-conference honors last season, offensives will have a lot of experience to deal with on the offensive side of the box as the Titans are looking to keep opposing offenses frustrated.
The Offense has a lot of different names who be looking to produce goals for the Titan offense this 2013 season. Instead of relying on one or two superstar players as the Titans have done since Mike Ansel joined the team in 2008, there will be much more balance and emphasis on teamwork this season. Senior Michael Ballantyne and first year player Matt Martinez look to control the midfield for Fullerton and make a big impact on offense. The attack will be headed by second year player Joe Wheeler and third year player and Captain Gabe Alamillo. There are also a great group of young players who are eager to prove themselves and make an immediate impact for the Fullerton Titans. Notable freshman include midfielder Braden Goebel and close defenseman Dakota Silverberg.
Although there were some big pieces lost from last year’s team, most notably, the Cole brothers, Chris and Cameron who have decided to go in a different direction than the team; the Titans are still going into the season with the same high expectations of leading the SLC South, winning the SLC Division, and making it to the National Championships. There is a long road ahead in order to achieve those goals, but the Titans are confident in themselves that they can surprise a lot of critics during the 2013 season.
NCAA Div II Lacrosse: Colorado Mesa Men’s Lacrosse Head Coach A.J. Stevens Looks To Build “Respect” And A Competitive Program
Colorado Mesa craves respect. Whether it’s in the name of the school – the university dropped the name Mesa State in favor of its current moniker – or the NCAA Division II lacrosse program, the Mavericks want people to know that there are serious things going on in Grand Junction, Colo.
Junior midfielder Kade Robinson, a former member of the Australian U-19 team and currently on the roster for the Aussie’s 2014 World Team, has seen the entire team buy into the mindset.
“We’re trying to establish a presence in the country as a whole and not just saying that little program out west anymore,” he said.
Most third-year programs are worried about depth issues and being mildly competitive. That’s not the case for Mesa.
With 100 kids in the program right now from 10 different states and two countries, the Mavs are deep and balanced. Stevens has used what he calls the “West Coast, Best Coast” mantra to fill his roster. Picking off the top players from the top preps in the West – along with several Australians – CMU has no trouble stacking every level of the field with talent.
“If we stay home and get the best kids here, we’ll build something special,” Stevens said.
Stevens also keeps an eye out for what he calls “snap-backs” – players from Colorado who tried their hand at Division I schools but were looking to get back close to home. These players are not only very talented, but provide a savvy group to an otherwise young roster that still doesn’t have any seniors.

MCLA Lacrosse: Cal State Fullerton Men’s Lacrosse Defeats Western Oregon And Utah Valley In Las Vegas On Feb 17-18
In the first three games, the brother tandem of freshman Cameron Cole and junior Chris Cole has been leading the Titans’ attack. Heading into Las Vegas, Cameron has 9 goals with 3 assists, and Chris has 2 goals and 2 assists.
The Cal State Fullerton men’s lacrosse team (2-3) left for Las Vegas Friday hungry for some wins, and they managed to return with two big victories to satisfy their cravings.
They defeated Western Oregon 12-11 Friday in a nail-biter, and then came back Saturday to crush Utah Valley in an impressive 17-4 win.
The Titans lacrosse team, who are the defending three-time Southwestern Conference Division II champions, lost their first three games of the season.
The start of the season pitted the Titans against several high-ranked teams from Division I. The Div. II Titans may have been 0-3, but that didn’t dampen their spirits. They continued to believe in themselves, and they understood what would be needed from them to turn things around.
The two wins were just what the doctor ordered for a young team that needs to experience winning in order to gain some confidence.
Head Coach Mike Morrison has led CSUF to all three of their recent championships, so he would not allow the squad to become complacent.
Paul Morgan, a junior public administration major, thought the team’s expectations were a little high going into the season, considering they lost several key players from last year’s championship team.
“The loss of Mike Ansul, J.R. Grubert and Andrew Hauke (to graduation) kind of set our offense back a little,” said Morgan. “Once we get a little more chemistry on offense I think we’ll start to see a big turnaround.
And a turnaround was just what they got, as the Titan offense exploded for 29 goals in the two games combined, giving them a much-needed boost to an offense that was slow to gel.
