Coach Recruiting Interview

This year first year head coach Derek Pedrick brought eight years of NCAA lacrosse coaching experience to the University of Arizona. The “LaxCats” finished the season ranked #14 in the MCLA national polls after beginning the season unranked. Coach Pedrick believes that the Wildcats have the talent to bring a national title to Tucson.

What positive surprises did you see from your team this season?

I thought we had many positive moments this past season. We had some players step up in key situations and that was great to see. It was also fun to watch some of our younger players develop into solid collegiate lacrosse players.

How did your season stack up against your expectations going into the season?

I think we all agree that our team improved and did a lot of great things this past year. However we are all pretty disappointed in not making the MCLA tournament and not winning some more of our big games. On the bright side 5 out of our 6 losses came to teams ranked in the top 10 as we were in every game we played this year.

Where did your team improve the most during the season and which player’s took a step forward in their game?

I feel our defense did a great job at the end of the year keeping us in a lot of games. I was really impressed with our goalie Tanner Knego who ended up having a really solid season. I truly believe every player on the D side of the ball improved throughout the year.

Where can next year’s team improve in order to reach your ultimate goal for the season?

We need to continue to compete day in and day out with each other to create the level of competition we need to be successful. I truly believe we have the talent to win a national title. My goal for our team next year is to become a true tight knit group. All of the successful teams I have ever been on and or coached have been a family. This is something that we are continuing to work on and next year its only going to get better.

Which incoming players are you most excited about and how do they fit with the type of team you are building?

We have around 20 freshmen recruits coming into the fall. I feel this group is an athletic diverse group that will make an impact right from the start. I look forward to seeing what they can bring to the table this fall.
