Craig & Andrew Whippie
Craig's bio is coming soon!
Coach Andrew Whiiple is a name familiar to most college lacrosse coaches. Whipple was one of the top recruits in the country coming out of high school. He was a 2-time All-American at Irondequoit High School and to date, is still Section V’s all-time leading scorer. His 99 goals and 76 assists during his senior season are staggering statistics and show why he was so highly recruited.
Whipple eventually chose The University of Maryland and was a 3-time NCAA All-American selection during his playing days. In 1995, 1997 and 1998 he lead the Terps to 3 National Championship Title Games while also leading the NCAA Tournament in scoring during the 1997 & 1998 seasons. Both years he was named to the NCAA All-Tournament Team. In his first year with the Terps, Whiiple was named ACC Rookie of the Year. He also captained Maryland’s team during the 1998 campaign.
In 1999, Whipple was offered and accepted a coaching position at Maryland as a Graduate-Assistant. After graduation, he was hired by Bryant College as their Head Assistant Coach for the 2000 season. Family ties soon brought Whipple back to his home of Rochester, New York as he coached for the State University of New York at Brockport from 2001-2003. After the 2003 season, Whipple was recruited and hired by Pittsford to coach their Varsity Lacrosse team.
Most recently, Coach Whipple is the Associate Head Coach (with his brother Craig) for the Rochester Regional Lacrosse Team that competes in the Adidas National Lacrosse Classic. The event showcases the top 500 high school lacrosse players consisting of rising sophomores, juniors and seniors in a 20-team national format.
In 2008 Whipple’s Rochester Regional team won the Adidas Lacrosse National Championships in Washington D.C. and played against the Canadian National Champions for the Brogden Cup.
