Mike Caravana
Mike Caravana
Title: Head Men's Lacrosse Coach
Phone: 740-587-6590
Email: caravanam@denison.edu
Year: 25th Year

Michael Caravana returns for his 25th season as the head men's lacrosse coach at Denison University in 2018.

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 24 years at Denison University.  During his time in Granville, he has guided Denison to three NCAA Final Four appearances in 1999, 2001 and 2017, 10 NCAA Tournament quarterfinal appearances and 11 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.

The Big Red is coming off the program's third NCAA Final Four appearance in 2017. They went 18-2 and landed five players on the USILA All-American teams.  Liam Rooney led the nation in assists (88) and broke varsity records for assists in a season, points in a season (126), career assists (162) and career points (282).  The defense allowed only 7.07 goals per game which ranked among the nation's best all season.  For the second consecutive season, the eventual national champion, Salisbury University, ended Denison's deep tournament run with a one-goal victory at Sea Gull Stadium.

Caravana boasts a career record of 274-89 and owns a stellar .755 winning percentage.  He has never had a losing season and his teams have won 10 or more games 16 times. Since his arrival in 1991 he has coached 64 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 nine years since his return, Caravana's teams have won 129 games with a .843 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 an 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.

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, Sam and Wyatt.
