Long Island City, NY, March 29, 2011 — The Chestnut Hill College “Griffins” men’s lacrosse team is the latest team to sign an equipment deal with Maverik Lacrosse. The “Griffins” under the direction of new head coach Brian “Doc” Dougherty are off to an early 4-3 start which includes a win over number 2 ranked Mercyhurst College in only their second year competing in the NCAA Division II East Coast Conference (ECC).
In 2011, the Griffins will be punishing their competition in custom red, white and yellow Maverik Maybach gloves and shoulder/elbow guards. Team Captain Mike Landau and his teammates will have their choice of shafts including the “Phenix” and the “Wonderboy.”
“Maverik is a fast rising company and one our players really respect,” said Brian “Doc” Dougherty, the first year men’s lacrosse Head Coach at Chestnut Hill College. “Maverik has done a great job listening to what players want and incorporating that feedback into the design of their equipment. We are really looking forward to working with everyone at Maverik and are confident it will give our players an advantage every time they step onto a field.”
“Doc is one of the best goalies to step between the pipes in college and as a pro,” said John Gagliardi, President and founder of Maverik Lacrosse. “We are really excited about having the opportunity to work with Doc and his staff to help the Griffins grow their program.”
