Georgetown Assistant Coach Justin Ward To Leave For Army West Point

The Hoyas lose both of their assistant coaches in a span of just over a week.

Sources have told College Crosse that former Loyola Greyhounds player and current Georgetown Hoyas assistant coach Justin Ward will head to West Point to fill Justin Turri’s vacant spot on the Army West Point Black Knights coaching staff.

Ward seems to have confirmed the news himself. He’s updated his Twitter bio and header respectively:

Ward recently wrapped up his third season on Kevin Warne’s staff. This past year was his first year as the team’s offensive coordinator after spending the last two seasons as an offensive assistant.

He’s worked with Daniel Bucaro, Peter Conley, Bo Stafford, and Reilly O’Connor in his three years in D.C. Last year, he helped Bucaro and Conley become first team All-Big East selections, and Conley as a USILA Honorable Mention All-American.

In 2016, he helped Bucaro become the Big East Freshman of the Year and with second team All-Big East Honors. In his first year, which was Georgetown’s best year in a long time, Ward improved the Hoya offense by nearly three goals a game. Stafford was first team All-Big East selection, and Craig Berge was a USILA Honorable Mention All-American.

Ward replaces Turri, who left West Point to join the Harvard Crimson in Chris Wojcik’s new-look staff.

Army does lose Cole Johnson, who led the team in all offensive scoring, but return their other two attackmen, as well as midfielder David Symmes. We’ll see if Ward can do a good job with a team and offense that has done very well in recent years.

Timmy Monahan Staying In-State, Joins Towson

Ty Xanders has reported that former Maryland Terrapins attackman Timmy Monahan will stay in Maryland and play for the Towson Tigers.

Monahan goes to a team that needs immediate help on offense and attack. They lose all three starters in Ryan Drenner, Joe Seider, and Tyler Konen. Monahan might start right away for the Tigers, who also have former Ohio State Buckeye Dylan Kinnear and former Greyhound Johnny Giuffreda. Add Drew Laundry to that list as well, but I would pencil in Monahan and Kinnear as two starters at attack right now.

The Tigers also got former UMass Lowell River Hawks goaltender Tyler Canto.

The Tigers lose Matt Hoy, but have senior Josh Miller and sophomore Shane Brennan on their roster as well. Brennan did not record a statistic this past season.

Logan Wisnauskas Heading Back Home To Maryland

I reported it last week, but in case you missed it on Twitter, former Syracuse Orange attackman Logan Wisnauskas is headed back to Maryland.

The left-handed attackman might be able to crack the starting lineup in 2018. Under Armour All-Americans James Avanzato and Bubba Fairman have a shot, and rising sophomore Jared Bernhardt should move down from midfield to attack. Louis Dubick and redshirt-freshman Anthony DeMaio are other options.

Seeing Wisnauskas practice last year in person, I think he can be a solid contributor to John Tillman’s defending national champion Terps. Dubick is the eldest of the attackmen as a junior, so this would be a very young unit.
