Press release from Red Bank Regional High School

Come springtime, two new faces will be commanding the sidelines for the Lacrosse programs at Red Bank Regional High School. Kevin Main and RBR alumna Brook Connell were announced on December 16 as the new head coaches for the 2016 Bucs boys’ and girls’ teams, respectively.

“I’m excited to have both Kevin and Brook onboard,” stated RBR Athletic Director Del Dal Pra. “We think that they can both bring great stability to our boys’ and girls’ lacrosse programs, not only at the high school level but also at the feeder system.”

Both Main and Connell arrive at Red Bank Regional with experienced lacrosse pedigrees. Main began his lacrosse career as a player at the Delbarton School in Morristown, and went on to play club lacrosse at Providence College. He previously served as the head boys’ lacrosse coach at West Windsor-Plainsboro North High School in 2012 and 2013, and was most recently the coach of the JV team at Northern Highlands High School in Allendale. Main has also coached in the Hopewell Valley youth lacrosse and N.J. Lacrosse Club programs.

A native of Little Silver, Connell played her four years of high school lacrosse at RBR from 2004-07, and then went on to play four years at Drew University in Madison. She previously coached at both the middle school and the varsity levels at the Ranney School in Tinton Falls (where she was the head coach in 2014), and with the United Lacrosse club program.

“I hope to start with a clean slate, create a winning program and get the girls…to have fun,” she said of her goals for the future of the program, adding that coaching at her alma mater was something she’d always hoped to do.

“I really liked the opportunity here, because it’s a community where it looks like lacrosse is growing,” said Main of his arrival at Red Bank Regional.

The Bucs boys’ lacrosse team finished with a 10-12 record last season, and will return eleven seniors to their roster. The Lady Bucs ended their season at 11-10.

Remember: Nothing makes a Red Bank friend happier than to hear "I saw you on Red Bank Green!"
