Mike Caravana
Mike Caravana
Title: Head Men's Lacrosse Coach
Phone: 740-587-6590
Email: caravanam@denison.edu
Year: 24th Year

Michael Caravana will return for his 24th season as the head men's lacrosse coach at Denison University in 2016-17.

One of the winningest coaches in college lacrosse and a former All-American attackman at the University of Virginia, Caravana has enjoyed two coaching stints spanning 23 years at Denison University.  During his time in Granville, he has guided Denison to a pair of NCAA Final Four appearances in 1999 and 2001, nine NCAA Tournament quarterfinal appearances and 10 North Coast Athletic Conference championships.  In 2013 he earned his 200th career victory after a win over Centre College and in 2016 he became Denison's career leader in wins.

In 2016, Denison won the NCAC regular season and tournament championship and advanced to the NCAA Tournament Elite 8 before falling to eventual national champion, Salisbury, in overtime.  Three players, Bart Farinholt, Liam Rooney and Ben Duhoski were named to the USILA All-American team.

In 2014, Denison went 19-1 setting new program marks for wins, goals (320), assists (189), and points (509).  Caravana was named to NCAC Coach of the Year, as five of his players were named to the USILA All-American team.  After racing through the regular season with a 15-0 record, Denison would win two NCAC Tournament games, and a pair of NCAA Tournament games before falling to eventual national runner-up, Salisbury, in the quarterfinals.

Caravana boasts a career record of 256-87 and owns a stellar .746 winning percentage.  He has never had a losing season and his team's have won 10 or more games 15 times. Since his arrival in 1991 he has coached 59 All-Americans and in 1994 he was named the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association's Division III Coach of the Year.  He is a five-time NCAC Coach of the Year and in 2003 he began a four-year commitment as the assistant coach for the United States lacrosse national team that earned a silver medal at the 2006 International Lacrosse Federation World Championship.

Caravana's first coaching stint at Denison spanned 1991 through 2005 where he won 145 games.  Caravana went on to serve as the head boys lacrosse coach at Woodbury Forest School (Va.) before returning to Denison as the head coach in the fall of 2008.  Since reclaiming the post, Caravana has taken the Big Red program to even greater heights.  In 2009 DU defeated No. 3 Roanoke, 14-7, to advance to the NCAA Tournament's Elite 8 for the first time since 2001.  In the eight years since his return, Caravana's teams have won 111 games with a .835 winning percentage.

A 1983 graduate of the University of Virginia, Caravana was a four-time All-American attackman for the Cavaliers. He earned a bachelor's degree in education and was a captain during his senior season. Caravana led Virginia in scoring three times and in assists all four seasons.

Following graduation, Caravana spent two seasons as an assistant coach at Brown University, then returned to U.Va., where he served as assistant head coach under Jim "Ace" Adams before accepting the head coaching position at Denison in the fall of 1990.  In 1998, Caravana earned his master's degree in sport management from the United States Sports Academy.

Caravana ranks second in all-time victories at Denison, trailing only his predecessor, Ferris "Tommy" Thomsen, Jr., who guided DU to 255 wins over the course of 25 seasons (1966-1990).

He is a member of the Charlottesville Chapter Lacrosse Hall of Fame, the Ohio Lacrosse Foundation Hall of Fame and the Long Island Metro Chapter Lacrosse Hall of Fame. Entering the 2014 season, Caravana ranked 23rd among active coaches in terms of winning percentage across all divisions of the NCAA.  In NCAA Division III, Caravana ranked 13th in all-time career victories.

Caravana and his wife, Ashlin, live in Granville and have three three sons, Nick, 22; Sam, 20; and Wyatt, 17.
