CBA is proud to announce that Ryan Powell has been named the head boys varsity lacrosse coach.
Powell, a 2018 inductee into the U.S. Lacrosse Hall of Fame, was a four-time All-American at Syracuse University and helped lead the Orange to the 2000 National Championship. That year, the Orange team captain was also named NCAA Attackman and Player of the Year. Powell has coaching experience at the club, high school, and college level and currently is involved in running lacrosse clinics throughout the country.
“We are excited to have Ryan Powell join our community and staff,” said Director of Athletics Buddy Wleklinski. “His experience and ability to teach the game of lacrosse made him a great fit for Christian Brothers Academy. We are confident that his leadership will allow us to continue the tradition of excellence that has been the hallmark of our program and be a great benefit to our players and institution.”
"I’m grateful for the opportunity to join the CBA family and to become a part of an amazing school with a rich tradition,” Powell shared. “Lacrosse has been a very big part of my life for a long time and the opportunity to develop young men on and off the field is something that I’m passionate about and excited for. The future of the CBA lacrosse program is bright, and I look forward to contributing my years of knowledge and experience to the program."
