Coaches comment: With 11 players returning who saw varsity action a year ago, there is experience. Division I commits Will Hindle (URI), Matthew Minckler (Virginia Tech), and Justin Blumenthal (UMass-Amherst) lead the group. Max Lalime (Baldwin-Wallace) had a great 2021 season, while Colin Marshall (Husson), Carmine Zingariello (Nichols), Elliot Miles, Damon Chase, Duncan Cullinane, and Boden Driscoll are key returnees. New Hampshire Division I will be deep and wide open this year with the usual suspects fighting for the tops spots.”
