Chris Corcoran

Lacrosse - 2002

Chris Corcoran becomes the third member of his family to be enshrined into the Coining-Painted Post Sports Hall of Fame, joining his late father Joseph and his brother Terry. Chris graduated from Coming East High School in 1981. He began his career as a freshman attacker. He was switched to goalie prior to his sophomore season and the move proved to be a wise one as he completed his high school career with a record of 53 wins and six losses in the Trojan net. His teams won the Southern Tier Lacrosse League Championship all three of those years and they also won the Section V title those seasons. He capped his high school career by being named All-STLL first team and then named as a High School All-American. During his three years as a goalie for East, Chris ranked first in saves with 615 and percentage (.677). He also played in the most games as a goalie (59) and was third overall in games played with 74. During his three years, Chris only allowed just over an average of five goals per game. He also recorded a fifth-best 235 saves in one season and recorded a 23-0 shutout of rival Corning West as a sophomore. Chris went on to play collegiate lacrosse at Princeton where he started as a freshman and served as a captain of the team during his senior season. However, a shoulder injury prevented him from performing at the Division One level and therefore his playing time was limited.
