Congratulations to Brian Phipps! 4th on the all-time saves list at the University of Maryland and one of the best goalies to ever don a Terps uniform, Phipps was the 23rd pick of this years Major League Lacrosse Draft. The "local" Chesapeake Bayhawks took Maryland's keeper with their 5th overall pick.
He will join Michael Kimmell of John's Hopkins (#2 overall) and Brian Carroll (#6 overall out of UVA) on the roster.
48 players were taken in the 8 rounds with Duke's Ned Crotty the top overall selection. Crotty will play for the Chicago Machine. 6 of the top 8 picks came out of the ACC.
Phipps joins 5 former Terps who are currently on the Bayhawk's roster:
Jeff Reynolds (2009), M
Andrew "Buggs" Combs (2001), A
Joe Cinosky (2008), D
Ray Megill (2007), D
Jeremy Sieverts (2009), M
Still no word on who is going to be the next coach for the Terps. Cornell's Tambroni is the most recent candidate to turn down the job offer.
