The College of Saint Benedict has turned to one of the state’s top prep coaches to head its new varsity lacrosse program.
Late last month, the school announced that Patrick Crandall has been hired to lead the Bennies’ program, which begins play in the spring of 2023.
Crandall has been the head girls lacrosse coach at Lakeville South High School since 2011. During his tenure there, his teams twice finished as state runners-up and twice as state consolation champions.
In 2015, he was named the Minnesota Coaches Association Coach of the Year. He also was instrumental in the creation and growth of the True Minnesota Lacrosse Club, which has become one of the top-ranked programs in the country.
