2015 Capecod.com Boys’ Lacrosse All-Cape & Islands Boys’ Lacrosse Coach of the Year: JoJo Jamiel, Dennis-Yarmouth Regional High School

In just his second year at the helm of the Dolphins’ boys’ lacrosse program, Jamiel has ushered in a new era of success. It was a season of firsts for the nine-year old program, which included victories over Atlantic Coast League rivals Falmouth and Sandwich, along with their first-ever postseason appearance and victories. The microcosm of the season came when the Dolphins fell behind Scituate 4-1 in the Div. 2 South semifinals, only to battle back and take the lead in the second half, a feat that never would have happened under the old, undisciplined regime. Driven, passionate, but intelligent and a true on-the-field style strategist, Jamiel proved his boys were no fluke this year, nor was he as the program’s leader.

2015 Capecod.com Boys’ Lacrosse All-Cape & Islands Player of the Year:  James Aloisi, Nantucket

Very quietly, the Whalers put together another successful season under coach Sam Aloisi the senior captain James Aloisi was a big reason why. Nantucket was the last local team standing, making a run to the Div. 3 South semifinals, where they lost to eventual champion Cohasset, a game in which Aloisi did not play due to injury suffered in the previous game. While putting together an undefeated Cape & Islands League schedule, the Whalers also defeated ACL powers Falmouth, Sandwich and Dennis-Yarmouth. Aloisi was second on the team in both goals (43) and assists (34).

2015 Capecod.com Boys’ Lacrosse All-Cape & Islands Team:

A – James Buttofucco, Sandwich – The junior established himself with quick hands this season, thriving in opportunities to catch and shoot around the crease.
A – Jake Girard, Bourne – A turnaround season for the Canalmen, winning their first postseason game since 2009, Girard was a big reason why. Bourne scored 10-plus goals 12 times this season, including a pair of 20-goal outbursts.
A – Bo Delaney, Barnstable – Always an offensive threat once his hands became free, the senior earned Maritime League All-Star accolades for his season in the offensive zone despite missing time with an injury.

A – Tom Glinski – Bourne – The senior captain of the Canalmen’s trio of potent attackmen, Glinski came through with clutch goals on multiple occasions, tallying the overtime winner against Fairhaven and providing a bright spot in the Canalmen’s loss to Old Rochester in the quarterfinals.
M – Ian Crosby, Dennis-Yarmouth – The quarterback of the Dolphins attack, Crosby was just as lethal shooting on net as he was finding the open man. However, the junior will not be returning for his senior season, instead opting to finish at Deerfield Academy.
M – Andrew Jamiel, Dennis-Yarmouth – The junior added the speed element into the Dolphins’ attack, but while himself and Crosby garnered plenty of attention from the opposition, it opened up plenty of looks for the supporting cast.
M – Mike McDonough, Barnstable – The senior overcame an early-season shoulder injury and found his groove early, highlighted by a six-goal performance against rival Falmouth, and earning Maritime League all-star honors.
M – James Aloisi, Nantucket – The Cape and Island’s League Player of the Year led the Whalers on a memorable sectional semifinal playoff run, tallying 43 goals and 34 assists for a total of 74 points during the season.
M – Zach Gorrasi, Sandwich – One of four Blue Knights that earned Atlantic Coast League all-star accolades, Gorrasi was most effective on the dodge high in the zone, where a majority of his goal came from as long as his hands got free.
D – Nick Ramirez, Nauset – While it wasn’t the season that the Warriors were hoping for after jumping out to a 2-0 start, Nauset did hold opponents under six goals on seven occasions this season, and Ramirez was a big reason why.
D – Dan Robles, Dennis-Yarmouth – The Dolphins ran the 3-3 zone with tremendous success this season, and Robles was a key reason why, always in the right place in the right time.

D – Tucker Herndon, Sandwich – The sophomore was a turnover-causing machine on the defensive end for the Blue Knights this season, with a nose for scooping groundballs.

G – Sean McNamara, Dennis-Yarmouth – The Dolphins’ success hinged on their ability to keep score low, and McNamara was critical, holding the opposition to roughly one goal per quarter this season.
Specialist, Natty Davidson, Nantucket – A monster year at the faceoff X, the senior won 159 of his 212 draws, an astounding 75 percent success rate.
