Benedictine / Chris Lorbers mishandling of replacing Coach Schaffer has really benfitted Padua. Lorber had a chance to lock up polo right away once Schaffer bounced. Could have kept the program and system business as usual with little to minimum changes. But Chris took the good ol’ boy route to the hiring process and allowed Polo to apply for Padua and walk away in favor of hiring his child hood buddy Carter Welo.

Coach Polo took a team that was previously 2-8 and 1-9 the two previous years and a team that was bottom of the NCL and getting beat up by the NCL to a 5-5 first season and a 9-3 second season with a home playoff birth in year two.

Padua couldn’t be happier with what Coach Polo has done for the program. The cultural change and the winning mindset has been embraced by the students and parents at Padua.

The team currently has three players with d1 offers. There are many big expectations for this team. Time will tell if they can live up to the expectations and continue to go further and further into the season under Polos leadership.
