LoCascio awarded Cascade Rookie of the Week

March 18, 2016
Rochester, NY (May 12, 2014)  Cascade Rookie of the Week was awarded to John LoCascio, who had a standout performance in his first MLL game with the Rochester Rattlers upon the ending of his season with Villanova. LoCascio's defensive efforts helped hold the New York Lizards in the single digits on Friday, allowing the Rattlers to split the Battle of New York series with a 15-8 win.

LoCascio, from Fairfield NJ, ended his season with the Wildcats just days before gearing up with the Rattlers.  The defenseman can now add this MLL honor with his long list of collegiate awards, including being the 2014 Big East Defensive Player of the Year, a First Team All-Big East selection and a 2014 Tewaaraton Trophy Nominee, awarded to the most outstanding American college lacrosse player (lacrosse’s version of the Heisman Trophy).

LoCascio will suit up again with the Rattlers as they take on the undefeated Denver Outlaws this Saturday May 17 thin Denver.  Rochester comes into the game with a 2-1 record on the season, most recently defeating the NY Lizards last Friday night in Rochester.  The Rattlers return home on Sunday, June 1 st to face the Florida Launch in the first meeting of the year between the two teams.
