Gilbert has over a decade of coaching experience, including heading the programs at Agoura Hills, Thousand Oaks, and SLUH. As a player, Gilbert is the only person in NCAA history to win a Division III (Washington College) and a Division I (Virginia) National Championship in back-to-back years. At Washington College, he was named co-rookie of the year and scored two goals in the championship game. At UVA, he was part of two ACC championships and a Final Four appearance in addition to the National Championship.
“I am absolutely thrilled to be named the next head lacrosse coach at St. Joe’s Prep,” said Gilbert. “Throughout the interview process, I became increasingly encouraged that it was the perfect fit so I’m glad the athletic department and administration felt the same way in the final analysis. I’m excited to return to the city where I grew up and learned to play lacrosse and humbled to have a chance to do what I love at an esteemed Jesuit institution like the Prep.”
