In 33 games under Mark Miyashita, Canisius has been pretty average with a 16-17 overall record. They did however win the MAAC Championship last season and tried to do so again in 2019.
Nonconference play was also average, but there were a couple of good wins by the Golden Griffins. The team alternated between a loss and a win in their first six games, beginning with a big loss to Hobart. Canisius then had to fight their way back against Mercer for their first win of the season before a setback against Furman. Fast forward to early March against Robert Morris where the Griffins held off the defending NEC champions in a rematch of last year’s NCAA play-in game for a two-goal victory. The following weekend against Colgate, Canisius used a 4-0 run to upset the 19th ranked Raiders at home for probably their best win of the year.

After graduating from Hopkins in 2017, Crawley went on to coach one season at Notre Dame and one year at Colgate. He is also currently playing in the Premier Lacrosse League with Atlas LC. Crawley will serve as offensive coordinator for the Mountain Hawks.
“I am so pumped to have the opportunity to join the journey the Lehigh Lacrosse program is on, a journey towards winning the Patriot League and National Championship,” said Crawley. “As I have gotten to know Coach Cassese and Coach Scudder in the past couple weeks, I have felt that their commitment to their players and this program is something I want to be a part of, learn from and grow in. The environment they’ve created of hard-working players with chips on their shoulder is one I can’t wait to get to work with.”
