Charlotte Hounds will re-join Major League Lacrosse in 2021
Charlotte Hounds president Jim McPhilliamy says his team will take a two-year break from competition as Major League Lacrosse reorganizes as it tries to expand.
David T. Foster, III
The Charlotte Hounds are taking a two-year leave from competition as Major League Lacrosse reorganizes.
MLL announced Sunday that, in an effort to expand, it has reacquired the league’s media rights and will increase teams’ salary caps for players by 51 percent. Additionally, the league adopted a policy limiting owners to one team.
As a result, the Hounds and two other teams will not be participating in the 2019 season. The Charlotte franchise also will sit out 2020 while renovations are completed at American Legion Memorial Stadium, owner Jim McPhilliamy told the Observer.
McPhilliamy, who also owns the Charlotte Independence soccer team, said increased lacrosse player salaries, combined with rising costs of functioning without a permanent venue, would make operating for the next two seasons too much of a financial burden.
“I don’t really have a home field to play on, so I was facing a situation where we’d have increased costs and decreased revenue,” McPhilliamy said. “It just makes more sense to sit on the sideline for two years versus losing that type of money.”
Renovations to the stadium are to be completed in February 2021, McPhilliamy said. In the interim, the Hounds were planning to split their games between the Sportsplex at Matthews, Marion Diehl Park at Queens University and a third undetermined location.
“It’s not just the cost of the facility,” McPhilliamy said. “Operationally, just trying to play games at a bunch of different places and moving our infrastructure around and (storing) a bunch of stuff in trucks, that’s expensive as well. Then you have to spend more on marketing because you have to tell people where you’re playing for a particular game, so it adds up to a lot of extra costs.
“From our perspective, it’s just a lot better for right now to focus on the soccer and relaunch the Hounds in 2021 when we have a place to play.”
When the Hounds return they’ll be starting from scratch.
For the time being, MLL will reassume ownership of the Hounds franchise, league Commissioner Sandy Brown told the Observer.
The team’s coaches, McPhilliamy said, are essentially free agents and able to sign with any other team. The Hounds’ players will go into a re-distribution draft scheduled for later in April.
As far as logistics for what happens to the Hounds in 2021, there is still much to be determined. McPhilliamy said he would like to remain as owner with a new ownership group. According to Brown, McPhilliamy and the league have been in contact about the transition back to becoming an active franchise.
Brown reiterated that MLL sees the Hounds and Charlotte as valuable parts of the league’s future, and that he was excited about the stadium renovations.
For McPhilliamy, now it’s a matter of wait and see as far as what comes next.
“Every home Hounds game is part of my summer, and I’m used to it, and I love it,” McPhilliamy said. “It’s not really a hard decision from a financial perspective, but it’s hard from your heart.”

Looking Forward: Denver Outlaws Vs Charlotte Hounds
When Charlotte head coach Mike Cerino joined the weekly Major League Lacrosse coaches call, he discussed the state of concern among the 1-4 Hounds, particularly regarding their chances for making a return trip to the postseason. Focusing on the playoffs was “too big of a bite to chew,” he said, and he’s right; when the calendar says “June” and you have only one win under your belt, you can’t get all Big Picture with it – you need to focus on immediate tasks, to (and thank you for not literally saying this, coach) take it one game at a time. The message was clear: if you’re 1-4, you can’t afford to worry about the playoffs. Well, anything is possible, but at 1-5, chances are you won’t have to.
If Charlotte is going to keep their postseason window open, they just might have to end The Streak. It’s obviously a daunting task, but the Hounds are bolstered by a bravado afforded to no other team in the league (“We ended last year’s streak, what’s one more?”), along with the fact that, as brief as it was, they held a fourth-quarter lead against the Outlaws last week.
The faceoff position is marked with a bit of uncertainty as well. First, Charlotte activated Geoff Snider, who won 17 of 25 draws against the Outlaws in the playoffs last summer. Snider is day to day with a knee injury he suffered during the NLL season, but if he’s available this weekend, they’ll be more than happy to have him. For Denver, their big change is that they won’t have Stephen Robarge coming out of the bullpen if things get out of hand (Anthony Kelly was 4-16 in that playoff game, Robarge 6-14.) again. With Robarge now in Chesapeake, the Outlaws could rely on Brent Hiken, a rookie out of Stevenson who won 72% of draws his senior year, to step up if Kelly calls for backup.
In exchange for sending Robarge to the Bayhawks, the Outlaws (aka Team Canada’s practice squad), received Team Canada midfielder Cameron Holding, a transition player for the Mammoth who Chesapeake selected second overall in the 2014 supplemental draft. Speaking of NLL guys making MLL debuts, Calgary Roughnecks star (and would you look at that: Team Canada member) Curtis Dickson is expected to join the Outlaws as well. Much like Zack Greer last season (and Mark Matthews in the season before that), Denver head coach B. J. O’Hara expects to not only play Dickson at attack, but to have him sub out of the box for midfield runs as well, citing that NLL players handle that role well due to their quick subbing experience.
As evidenced by the recent roster additions, scouting these teams is going to be tricky, and far more difficult than you’d expect considering the fact they played against each other last weekend. O’Hara mentioned during the coaches call that he has to prepare his team for the likes of Young and Mike Chanenchuk, although neither played last weekend (and there’s really nothing saying they’ll play this weekend, either). You see, coaches tend to guard their lineups like nuclear activation codes, which is somewhat frustrating for opposing coaches, but extremely frustrating for people who write Major League Lacrosse previews. It’s tough to beat a team twice in a row, even tougher when you don’t know who you’ll be going against.
If there’s one team that’s up for such a unique challenge, it’s the Denver Outlaws, who continue to roll along with surgical precision and cold-blooded efficiency. Four of their players have reached double digit point totals, whereas none of the Hounds have crossed that mark. Denver has two offensive players shooting under 25%; Charlotte has one shooting over 25%. Denver is converting on 50% of their extra-man opportunities, (disclosure: they’ve had the fewest man-up advantages as well) the best percentage in the league.
At 42.8%, Charlotte has the worst penalty kill. You see where I’m going with this, but it’s important to remember (especially for a rookie-laden team like Charlotte) that these are cumulative stats that reflect the entire season thus far; you can’t blame guys like Mike Chanenchuk and Justin Ward for things that took place while they were still in school. Of course, that means we can’t give this roster all the credit for Charlotte’s clutch performances through the years (Danowski and Young’s game-winners against Chesapeake in 2012 and 2013, respectively, immediately come to mind), but they do seem to have a knack for that sort of thing, and the stars of those performances are still on the roster.
Aside from the intangibles, the Hounds should also be pleased to know that the Outlaws have been keeping their games close (they’re winning by an average of three goals this season, as opposed to seven at this time in 2013, and were taken to overtime back in week three), and have been guilty of taking their feet off the gas in the second half. It’s not the “they’ve been outscored 34-29” part that’s cause for concern among Outlaws fans, it’s that they’ve only outscored their opponent once during the second half this season (it’s all admittedly a bit nit-picky, but when you’re looking for cracks in a team on this kind of run, you get them where you can).
The window’s closing fast, and if Charlotte’s going to turn things around, they’ll have to do it right away. Do the Hounds have another upset in them, or did that all the magic run out last year? Catch the game at 7:30 EST Saturday night on CBS Sports (check the main page for the rest of this weekend’s game times and channels), and we’ll be back next week with more Major League Lacrosse coverage.

How the First-Place Hounds Forged a Winning Culture
In the 2013 Major League Lacrosse playoffs, coach Jim Stagnitta led his undefeated Denver Outlaws into an MLL semifinal encounter with a second-year franchise, the Charlotte Hounds.
The Outlaws dominated the regular season. They led the league in scoring with 226 goals (45 more than the next-best team) and defense (136 goal allowed, 13 fewer than the next team). Charlotte, coached by Mike Cerino, was using a team predominantly comprised of rookies.
On that August day in Chester, Pa., however, the Hounds pulled off the upset, stunning the Outlaws 17-14. Charlotte lost to Chesapeake the following day in the championship game, 10-9, but it was a run everyone in the organization was proud of.
Fortunes changed for both teams after that day, however. Denver reached the championship game three of the next four seasons, winning its first two MLL titles, including the following season in 2014. Charlotte, on the other hand, finished last in the league the following two seasons and missed the playoffs in three of the following four seasons.
“When I took the coaching job, the group running it was like, ‘We want to be in the championship game in year two or three the latest,” said Cerino, now the team’s general manager. “A lot of the moves were made with how quickly could we get in a championship position in mind. There was a hangover after that.”
Fast forward to Week 5 of the 2018 MLL season, with the Hounds traveling to Denver for a game Saturday (9 p.m. ET), and Charlotte seems to have turned things around.
The Hounds (4-0) are atop the standings, the only undefeated team remaining. They also are first in goals per game and goals allowed per game. More importantly, they may have finally found the culture they’ve been searching for all along.
“The credit goes to these guys,” Cerino said. “They do have outside commitments, but they’re at the ball game. That’s been the difference. They’re making the commitments around their jobs to make this team successful. They’re holding each other accountable and feel the organization is supporting them.”
“We’re underdogs. We were put last in the rankings. That motivates people. If you have good people and good chemistry, that goes a long way.” — Dylan Maltz
Stagnitta is now in his third year as coach of the Charlotte Hounds. The team tied for first in the league with six other teams in his first season, making the playoffs on a tiebreaker, and finished two games out of the playoffs in his second season, although they were in contention into the final week.
As a former college coach, culture is very important to Stagnitta and something he’s tried to build with the Hounds.
“I told [Outlaws general manager] Tony Seaman [I won’t coach] if all I’m going to do is run a box and manage egos. I need to develop a team, a culture, and coach people,” said Stagnitta, whose college coaching career included stints as the head coach at Rutgers and Washington and Lee. “We have not only phenomenal players, but phenomenal guys. We push them. We have high expectations for them. It proves in this league you can truly work as a team. You can have a culture where people buy into roles like in a college team. It doesn’t happen overnight. We’ll have our bumps in the road, but I believe we have the culture and quality of people and commitment to overcome those things.”
Despite the strong start, the Hounds had plenty of personnel obstacles to overcome.
Of the top six scorers from the 2017 squad — John Haus, Ryan Brown, Joey Sankey, Mike Chanenchuk, Kevin Crowley and John Crawley — only one (Brown) has played in at least three games to start the 2018 season. Crowley (NLL commitments) and Sankey (injury) have yet to make their MLL debuts this year.
The team’s depth was tested; it passed with flying colors.
In Week 1 against the Boston Cannons, Kevin Cooper — who was acquired at the 2017 trade deadline but played in only two games for the Hounds — scored seven goals and assisted on two others.
In Week 2, Dylan Maltz — who went undrafted in 2017 and wasn’t even on a roster after training camps broke in April — scored four goals in his MLL debut. He continued to surprise many by scoring three goals and adding one assist against the Bayhawks and then scoring another two goals and assisting another goal against the Machine.
“Honestly, we had no expectations for Maltz,” Stagnitta said. “He has a great IQ. He has a skill set that works well with what we do. He’s performed well above and beyond for our expectations and someone who’s never played in an MLL game before.”
Maltz, who did not make the Outlaws roster out of training camp prior to the 2018 season, only wanted to be part of a team. Matt Rambo, a second-year attackman for the Hounds and Maltz’s line mate on Maryland’s 2017 NCAA championship team, vouched for his friend.
“I wanted to have fun and work hard and not let Matt down, putting my name out there and helping me get picked up,” Maltz said. “A lot of our success has to do with between-the-lines plays, whether that’s winning a ground ball or running out a shot. We’re playing at a really hard level. We’re underdogs. We were put last in the rankings. That motivates people. If you have good people and good chemistry, that goes a long way.”
Another reason for the team’s turnaround, and another example of the change in culture and accountability, is the goaltending.
Prior to the 2018 season, Stagnitta said goalie play was an area that would need to improve if the team wanted to climb in the standings. In 2017, Charlie Cipriano — who played for Stagnitta in Denver — posted a 14.04 goals against average and .488 save percentage, both of which were eighth in the league among qualifying goalies.
“We did damage when he played three games in six days,” Cerino said. “There wasn’t anything left of him. We opened the season 0-3, so there’s a little sense of panic that every game is your season.”
“I broke a rib,” Cipriano said, describing the three-games-in-six-days stretch. “I just took [the losses] very personally. Come September of last year, we lost and I took it on myself. I said, ‘I’m working on this from September until the season starts.’ I had my worst season in the MLL. I know how I can play, my caliber. I worked out a ton. I told Coach Stags and Coach Cerino I was embarrassed about my performance.”
In three games, Cirpriano’s statistics are much improved, posting a 10.55 goals against average and a .580 save percentage. A prime example of the maturity and growth of both Cipriano and the Hounds, Stagnitta said Cipriano — with a stretch of three games in nine days — told the coaching staff to start Pierce Bassett in the third game. While the coaching staff was already planning on making that change, they felt it showed great leadership for Cipriano to communicate with them and stand up for his teammate.
Many coaches tell their teams it takes sacrifice to be successful. While many players, especially in MLL, are willing to sacrifice time to make themselves better, it is something else to sacrifice playing time and statistics. Cipriano and Maltz, however, show that the Charlotte players are listening and understand.
Wingate’s Watterson and Sneed earn spots on Charlotte Hounds practice squad
Men’s Lacrosse | 4/20/2016 10:28:00 AM
Charlotte, N.C.—-Wingate University men’s lacrosse alumni Greg Watterson (’03, ’07 MBA) and Bryce Sneed (’14) have been named to the Charlotte Hounds practice squad, officials announce this week. The Hounds play in the Major League Lacrosse organization.

Charlotte Hounds take Norbo in 13th round of MLL Supplemental Draft
BOSTON – Elizabethtown College men’s lacrosse assistant coach Nate Norbo was selected in the 13th round (No. 110 overall) of the 2016 Major League Lacrosse (MLL) Supplemental Draft by the Charlotte Hounds Wednesday afternoon.
Norbo played three seasons for coach Ray Rostan at Hampden-Sydney College from 2010-12 after transferring from Division I Fairfield University. While a member of the Tigers, the Waterford, Va., native registered 130 ground balls and forced 48 turnovers. Norbo led the team in caused turnovers during his junior and senior seasons and was second on the team in ground balls (52) behind only the team’s face-off specialist in 2012.
A long stick midfielder, Norbo earned All-Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) Second Team honors in 2011 and 2012. He helped the Tigers reach the ODAC Tournament in each of his three seasons with the team and twice they advanced to the semifinals. Norbo received High School All-America honors from US Lacrosse as a senior while attending Loudon Valley in 2007.
Norbo joined coach Drew Delaney‘s staff prior to the 2015 season after serving as the defensive coordinator at Ferrum College a year earlier. In Norbo’s first season at Elizabethtown, the Blue Jays set a program record with 14 victories (14-3), including a record 13-game winning streak. E-town led the Landmark Conference with a 5.97 goals against average, 669 ground balls and 213 caused turnovers.
Norbo and fellow assistants Rich Lefever and Brett Bird were honored along with Delaney as the Landmark Coaching Staff of the Year in 2015.
The MLL Supplemental Draft is designed to strengthen teams’ rosters from 23 to 35 players. Charlotte was active Wednesday, selecting 14 players and making an early trade with the Chesapeake Bayhawks.
Teams will now prepare for the 2016 MLL Collegiate Draft presented by Cascade, which is scheduled to take place January 22, 2016, in Baltimore, Md.
Trio balancing start of MLL season with jobs on MU staff – Marquette Wire
B.J. Grill and Ryan Brown sit feet away from each other in the lacrosse offices during the week, but when the duo took the same flight down to Charlotte, they were prepping to go to battle against one another.
Grill and Brown, both members of Marquette’s coaching staff, play in Major League Lacrosse, the premiere professional outdoor lacrosse league. Grill’s Denver Outlaws traveled to play Brown’s Charlotte Hounds as part of the MLL’s season-opening weekend.
Brown was dominant, scoring five goals and one assist, but Grill got the final laugh. The Outlaws began their title defense with a 13-12 victory at American Legion Memorial Stadium.
A third member of Joe Amplo’s staff, Jake Richard, is also in the MLL. However, he wasn’t able to join his New York Lizards when they played the Chesapeake Bayhawks Saturday. He was busy trying to slow down Duke at Valley Fields. He’ll miss at least two more weeks of the season as he works the sidelines during Marquette’s game against Denver and the BIG EAST Tournament.
“It’s just a small sacrifice to make to be able to have the lifestyle that I have,” Richard said. “I don’t remember seeing any friction from the Lizards at all. They’re like, ‘Alright, you’re going to miss the first couple games, right?’ … It’s been easy.”
It isn’t a problem unique to Marquette’s staffers. Eighteen MLL players coach at the Division I level, and many others coach at the Division II, Division III, club and high school levels. Teams are also without players finishing up the indoor lacrosse season and won’t have this year’s collegiate draft picks until Memorial Day weekend. The rosters at the beginning of the season rarely look like the ones at season’s end.
Grill and Brown are exceptions. Grill’s work as director of lacrosse operations is done by game day, and since Brown is a volunteer assistant, head coach Joe Amplo said they wouldn’t hold him back from playing.
Whether they’re on the sidelines or not, they have to balance their commitment to both Marquette and their respective MLL franchise.
“Time management is really hard, especially when I work until 5 and go to school until 5:30 or 8:30,” Grill said. “That’s one thing that I struggle with, but games make it worth it.”
On top of balancing playing and their Marquette duties, the trio is also fighting off the infamous sophomore MLL slump. All three had outstanding rookie campaigns. Brown finished second in Rookie of the Year voting, Grill won the Steinfeld Cup as a starting defenseman and Richard found a spot in the rotation on one of the deepest defensive midfield units in the league.
However, the first year in the league is often known as the easiest. Players jump right into the MLL season after they finish their collegiate season, so their bodies are still fine-tuned by their college coaches and training staff. After the first year, they’re on your own. No one will tell them to work out or force them to go to practice.
“The echo I heard last year was, ‘If you make it two (years), you’ll probably make it six,’” Grill said. “You’ve got to make that second year. That allows you to show you’re really committed to being at your physical peak on your own. … I kind of went through a lull, a hard lull. I’ve recently recovered over the past month.”
Grill, Brown and Richard have the advantage of holding a lacrosse stick a majority of their days, as opposed to some of their colleagues who work regular day jobs. Since their schedules line up, Brown and Richard work out together and all three have the facilities to hone their skills.
“There’s definitely a big difference between going to practice, being able to work out and watching lacrosse all the time than sitting at a desk in New York City looking at investments and stocks,” Brown said, “There’s a big difference in readiness to play.”
However, the lack of other post-collegiate lacrosse players in the state made it difficult for them to stay prepared.
“Being in Wisconsin, there’s not a league and there’s nothing where you can actually compete against other people,” Grill said. “The couple guys that actually did come in in phenomenal shape were guys that had the opportunity to play consistently at least 4-on-4 or 6-on-6 with friends.”
So, there will be some trial by fire early on, but a busy summer schedule will whip them into shape.
“I’m going to be on a plane for 16 of the next 18 weekends, minimum,” Grill said. “It’s exhausting almost. It’s tough to think about, but once you get into rhythm with games … the season starts to roll and it becomes fun. It’s like the most fun lacrosse I think I’ve ever played.”
