LRU Men’s Lacrosse Welcomes New Head Coach
By Joseph Pompeo
La Roche University’s men’s lacrosse team hired a new head coach, Richard Reichenbach.
Coach Reichenbach was the head coach for the Maine University girls’ hockey team along with his wife, Sara Reichenbach as the assistant coach.
After 12 seasons they completed a record of 108-155-28 (72-177-24 Hockey East).
He moved to the North Hills to work at Larkin Sports Performance with his friend. After buying a house close to the school he saw the opening job; he applied with no hesitation.
He played in four different hockey leagues as well as playing lacrosse in high school and college.
He played on the Nepean Raiders in the Central Canada Hockey League, the Helena Bighorns in the America West Hockey League, Hamilton College in Division 3 hockey/lacrosse, and the Richmond Renegades in the Southern Professional Hockey league.
He then made his way to his coaching career as a hockey and lacrosse coach at Mill Brook High School and a girls’ coach at Maine University.
The Redhawks had two coaches in the past two years going 2-13 combined. Due to covid, they had to end their 2020-21 season short.
This season, so far, has been very optimistic and positive with the new coach. He is excited to start playing games and can’t wait to see the team improve on and off the field.
Coach Reichenbach’s goals are to win one game. If the Redhawks end up winning one, then to win the next, and so on.
Along with winning he also needs to recruit anywhere from 3-10 players for this and next season. Lastly, he wants to find consistent training time with the team’s work and class schedules.
