AVON, Conn.--  The Intercollegiate Men's Lacrosse Coaches Association (IMLCA) has announced that Mike Caravana, Grant Zimmerman, Joel Zalesky, Adam Stewart and Kevin McLam were named the Division III West Region Coaching Staff of the Year.

Under the direction of Caravana, who just completed his 24th season at Denison, the Big Red advanced to the NCAA Semifinals for the third time in program history.  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.

Caravana is Denison's career leader in victories.  In 24 seasons he has a career record of 274-89 (.734).  Since 2014, the Big Red has compiled a record of 68-9 and has advanced to two Elite Eights and one Final Four.

Zimmerman completed his second year as an assistant coach in 2017.  In two seasons in Granville, Denison has posted back-to-back 18-2 campaigns.  Zimmerman was a four-year starting goalkeeper at the University of North Carolina from 2006-09. Before coaching at Denison, Zimmerman was the assistant coach and defensive coordinator at John Carroll University.

Zalesky completed his first season on the Denison sideline in 2017. Zalesky played collegiately at Seton Hill and went on to play professionally for the Toronto Nationals, Ohio Machine and the Hamilton Nationals of the MLL and the Rochester Knighthawks of the NLL.

Stewart returned to Denison in 2017 in a part-time role after spending 2009-2012 as a full-time assistant under Caravana.  In four seasons, the Big Red went 48-12 advancing to the NCAA Tournament in all four seasons.

McLam completed his final season as a student assistant coach.  He played one year in 2014 before moving to the sidelines in 2015.
