About the team

At Wesleyan, the student-athlete experience is one predicated on the balance between academics and athletics. Being a student first is stressed heavily in the program, and finding athletes that want to exceed both in the classroom and on the field provides a great window into the Division III lacrosse experience.

 

Head Coach: John Raba

Coming aboard the full-time Wesleyan staff in 1996 and now an adjunct professor in the physical education department as well as an assistant director of athletics, Raba enters his 21st season as head coach of men's lacrosse in 2017. Raba has an impressive 226-108 record at Wesleyan, including an 18-3 mark in 2007, the best season ever at the college, and a 16-4 record in 2006 as the team advanced to the NCAA Division III tournament semifinals both years. For his accomplishment in both 2006 and 2001, when the team went 17-3, Raba was named NESCAC and NEILA Division III Coach of the Year. Raba earned his fifth NEILA Coach of the Year award following a 15-4 season in 2009 as his Cardinals captured the NESCAC tournament title for the first time and qualified for the NCAAs for the fourth time in a five-year span. He was named Co-Coach of the Year by the NEILA in 2005 after his squad posted a 13-6 overall mark, reached the NESCAC finals and received its first-ever bid to the NCAA Division III tournament, making it to the quarterfinals. Both his 2000 and 2001 squads reached the ECAC New England Division III title game. After posting a 14-4 mark and reaching the NESCAC Championship game in 2004, he received NEILA Coach of the Year laurels as well.
