"The Pine-Richland Rams begin the 2015 boys lacrosse season with a new head coach.
Chip Young, 26, guides the Rams after serving as an assistant under former Pine-Richland boss Rob Marasti, who left to become an assistant at Robert Morris University this offseason after an 11-5 season.
"I'm never going to say it's easy, but I've definitely been lucky this year," Young said. "I walked into a great group of 14 seniors and every single one of them is a great leader. The more leaders we have the stronger the team will be. They've made my life easier."
Young's tenure began on a positive note when a roster of 32 players enjoyed an 8-5 victory March 20 against Peters Township. Midfielder Scott Wilden scored three goals with one assist as Pine-Richland broke open a 3-3 halftime tie with five consecutive goals."
