Head Coach
Andy Thompson
2012 marks Coach Thompson's ninth year of coaching St Charles Lacrosse.
He has led teams to conference and/or tournament championships at the Freshmen, JV and Varsity levels, and has guided StC into the State Final Four four straight years, from 2007-10. (He also led 2011's team to the state quarterfinals.)
Coach Thompson played StC lacrosse from 1995-99, and went on to play lacrosse and football at Elmhurst College.
Coach Thompson is a co-founder and Director of New Wave Lacrosse. He lives in South Elgin with his wife, Mindy, and their daughter, Brooke.
Asst Coach
Sean McCaffrey
This is Coach McCaffrey's fourth year with StC Lacrosse, and his third as a member of the Varsity staff.
Coach Mac was instrumental in establishing and nurturing Geneva's boys lacrosse team. As a player, he captained the team its first year, then coached its Frosh and JV teams before walking on at D2 St Leo University.
A back injury there curtailed his college career, and he returned to Geneva to coach the Varsity. He joined StC in 2008.
Coach Mac is on staff at ProForce Sports Performing Training in Batavia,
 
It was a dark and stormy night (well, not too stormy, or the game would've been called) and photographer Connie O'Brien was there to capture it all -- including the Varsity's splashy ninth goal in an eventual 14-2 win over Bartlett on Monday.
The win pushed the team's season record to 6-5, and evened its conference mark at 3-3.
The game also saw another record set, by Senior Co-Captain Austin Patrick (right).Austin tied a Club record for assists in one game with 6 (see list). Thanks to SCN Head Coach (and Club historian) Andy Thompson for the heads up.
