On this week’s episode of New England Lacrosse Journal’s “Chasing The Goal” podcast, hosts Kyle Devitte and Jack Piatelli were joined by Gettysburg head coach Pete Toner.
Toner, a New England native, served as an assistant coach at Penn State for over a decade before taking over the Gettysburg program last season.
After spending the previous 11 years at Penn State, where he oversaw the team’s defensive strategy and coordinated recruitment, the Springfield College graduate and former head coach at Wheaton College returned to his Division 3 origins as Gettysburg’s fourth head coach since 1969.
Toner (Kennebunk, Maine) led the Bullets to a 14-8 overall record and a 6-2 record in conference play in his first season as a head coach in 2022. With a roster full of New England natives and a deep knowledge of the game, Toner enters his second season poised to challenge for the Centennial Conference title.
