Bellarmine lacrosse coach Jim Mitchell has announced the additions of Kyle Bernlohr, as we reported a few weeks ago, and Steve Soriano to his inaugural coaching staff at Bellarmine. Both Bernlohr and Soriano are up and coming young coaches with a lot of experience that they can bring to this Bellarmine program.

Bernlohr comes to Bellarmine after a two year coaching stint at Cleveland State. While at Cleveland State Bernlohr worked with the goalies and was then promoted to defensive coordinator last season. Prior to his coaching day Bernlohr was one of the best players in college while at Maryland. Bernlohr was a two-time All-American and a Tewaaraton nominee in 2015.

Bernlohr plays professionally in the MLL for the Ohio Machine. He would help the Machine to their MLL Championship in 2017. Also he was the Most Improved Player in 2017 as well as a nominee for Goalie of The Year. He also holds a record for best save of all time, at least in my book he does.

Soriano is a Bellarmine alum and former coach. Soriano was a volunteer assitant at Bellarmine during the 2016-17 season. He has a one year coaching stint at Princeton in 2018. Soriano worked with the offense and the face-off groups at Princeton. Soriano got his start in coaching at the high school level in Louisville. He was on the coaching staff at Trinity High School from 2014-15 and spent one year as an assistant at Christian Academy of Louisville.
