The mission of the Bishop O'Connell lacrosse program is to provide each and every player with a positive lacrosse experience and, in doing so, promoting his confidence, self-esteem and positive life skills that will serve him well throughout his life. Our program prides itself in playing the game the right way for the right reasons, with an emphasis on being the best that you can be in an environment which stresses self-discipline, teamwork and sportsmanship - both on and off the playing field.
O'Connell lacrosse competes in two very competitive conferences; Washington Catholic Athletic Conference (WCAC) and the Virginia Independent Schools Athletic Association Division 1 (VISAA-D1). The team plays a 17 game regular season schedule and also participates in two playoffs (WCAC and VISAA-D1). Members of our lacrosse program not only work throughout the year improving their lacrosse skills, but are very active in the community supporting local and national charities.
Rowlett comes to O’Connell with a distinguished playing career that included a national title at the University of North Carolina, and a gold medal on the U-19 Team USA. He is currently a professional player in the Premier Lacrosse League, and most recently served as the Director of Lacrosse at The St. James in Springfield, Va.
“I could not be more excited to have an opportunity to lead this group of young men,” said Rowlett. “I look forward to helping them grow as people as well as lacrosse players. We are going to continue to build the program and develop a culture that we can be proud of.”
“Coach Rowlett will be a great teacher of the game and will develop players, but what impressed me was his focus on coaching as an opportunity to mentor and positively influence the players he works with,” said Athletic Director Joe Wootten. “I am confident he has the approach that players will be excited to play for.”
