Former Princeton Tigers goaltender Brian Kavanagh has been promoted as a full-time assistant coach with the Vermont Catamounts.

"We are very excited to have Brian joining the Catamount staff in a full-time position," [Chris] Feifs said. "His elevation from volunteer to full-time speaks to his character, knowledge of the game and hunger to work with our young men."

A former netminder himself, Kavanagh played collegiately at Princeton from 2012-14. As a sophomore in 2012, the Tigers reached the Ivy League Championship and ultimately punched a ticket to the NCAA Tournament. The following season, Princeton returned to the league final before falling to Yale.

As a senior in 2014, Kavanagh was honored as a recipient of the John. T. Schroeder Award, given annually to an individual who, through the embodiment of character and selfless devotion to the team, has had the greatest impact on the success of Princeton men's lacrosse.

Kavanagh’s former teammate at Princeton, Tom Schreiber, gave him a shoutout as well.

Phil Shore of US Lacrosse Magazine has a great profile on former Syracuse Orange and current Atlanta Blaze attackman Kevin Rice.

At Syracuse, Rice scored 80 points (36 goals, 44 assists) as a junior. Despite the success, Rice wasn’t selected until the fourth round by the Florida Launch. Before even playing a game in the league, Rice was then traded to Rochester in a deal for Miles Thompson.

“I had spoken to several GMs before [the draft]. I expected to go earlier,” he said. “Once the first round went, I stopped watching. I knew it was another situation where I could internalize and use it for my benefit for my senior season. After the first round, it didn’t make much difference. Rochester gave me a shot my rookie year, and I was fortunate.”

As a senior, Rice tallied 84 points (36 goals, 48 assists), was a USILA first-team All-American and won the Turnbull Award as national attackman of the year. Jumping right into MLL, Rice scored 11 goals and added 10 assists in eight games.

Then he was traded — again – this time to Atlanta.

“I thought he was a heck of a player,” [Dave] Huntley said. “I thought he was a complete attackman, the ability to dodge and pass and score. I really liked the way he conducted himself, so when we had a chance to get him for the Blaze – I was coaching the offense last year — he was a guy who was really high on my list.”
