Each month the Rochester Athletic Department highlights a current coach who makes a strong commitment to give our kids the best athletic experience possible. This month’s Coach in the Spotlight is Boys Head Varsity Lacrosse coach Nick Facca. Facca is currently in his fourth overall season as the head coach at Rochester High School. In his first season as the head coach for the Falcons, Facca led Rochester to its highest win total in program history, only to do it again two years later. In year two coach Facca led Rochester to their first ever playoff victory. Coach Facca has had success on the field leading the Falcons, but he takes great pride in the fact that his teams work just as hard in the classroom. This past season his team was named Academic All-State for the third straight year. Facca also volunteers at various youth levels, helping to assist young players in developing while also promoting the sport.
“Coach Facca is an outstanding coach, but even better person”, says Rochester Athletic Director Luke Beach. “Nick is such a high character person, and it shows in the way he runs his program” Beach said. “It would be difficult to find someone who dedicates themselves more to doing things the right way than Nick”, Beach added.
