Currently preparing for the PLL season as an assistant of Chaos LC, Matt Panetta was once a 3x All-American and contender for the 1989 National Championship. One of the Johns Hopkins all-time greats, Panetta finished his career ranked 14th on the Blue Jays career goals list (86), 10th for points (156) and ninth in assists (71).
Current Chaos head coach Andy Towers called him an “unreal competitor” going on to say “at one point, arguably the best (right-handed) dodging attackman on the planet.”
It’s Johns Hopkins handling North Carolina in the 1989 NCAA Semifinals thanks to Lacrosse Film Study. A hat trick from Panetta would drive the Jays past the Heels, 10-6, to earn a spot in the National Championship. They would fall short to Syracuse by a goal in the Final, 13-12.
