CAMBRIDGE, MASS. 5/22/09 - Friday was a special day for the Keene State men's lacrosse coach Mark Theriault. Theriault, who just completed his 10th season coaching the Owls, was on the sidelines directing the North team in the annual Division III North/South All-Star game at Harvard Stadium.
"It was an honor to represent both Keene State and the Little East Conference in this year's game, said Theriault, a Lewiston, Maine native. "It was exciting to coach in a game that I participated in as player in 1995."
Theriault played in the game following his standout career at Springfield College, netting two goals and dishing out four assists in the game played at Johns Hopkins University.
The first coach from the LEC to receive the honor, Theriault was also one of two coaches out of 156 Division III programs selected for the notable assignment.
