Guilfoyle tapped as new Roanoke Catholic varsity lacrosse coach


Lacrosse GuilfoyleRoanoke Catholic School is pleased to announce the hiring of Frank Guilfoyle as our new varsity lacrosse head coach.

Most recently coach of RCS’ middle school boys lacrosse team, Guilfoyle inherits a varsity team that last year rose to No. 6 in the state and made the state playoffs with an 8-4 record including wins over North Cross, Hargrave Military Academy, Liberty Christian, William Byrd High School and Cave Spring High School.

“We have a good group of young men and a good program,” Guilfoyle said. “They ought to get a banner or two.”

Guilfoyle played lacrosse at the University of Notre Dame and has coached his sons — Gregory, Class of ’16, and Bryant, ’19 — in the sport. His daughters — Aidan, ’11, and Mairin, ’13 — were star volleyball players at RCS and currently play at the collegiate level.

Roanoke Catholic Lacrosse“Not only is Frank a wonderful lacrosse coach and leader of our young men, he has a deep and lasting commitment to Roanoke Catholic School,” said athletic director Matt Peck. “We are thrilled that he has agreed to take on this program and we’re confident RCS Lacrosse will reach even greater heights.”
