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, John Raba enters his 20th season as head coach of men's lacrosse during 2016. John has an impressive 207-96 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, John was named NESCAC and NEILA Division III Coach of the Year. John 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.
