Hello, my name is Patrick Kaczmarczyk, I am the store manager for Commonwealth Lacrosse here in our brand new ComLax store in Amherst/Buffalo, NY. I started my lacrosse career at St. Francis High School in Athol Springs, NY, lettering 3 times as a varsity player. While attending Frannies, I was a part of 2 Monsignor Martin Championship teams and helped the team hold on to a 38-0 record during my starts in the cage. I was Team Captain, First Team All-Catholic, First Team All-WNY, Monsignor Martin All tournament Team, and 2nd Team All-America.
After high school I went on to obtain my Bachelor's Degree from Keuka College, while playing on the DIII Varsity Lacrosse team for 2 years. After Keuka, in 2008 I went on to finish my eligibility with a Division I program at Canisius College and earned my Masters in Administration. While attending Canisius, I helped the team go on to win its first MAAC Conference Championship in school history, as well as its first NCAA Tournament appearance vs. the National Champions Syracuse University.
Since college I've coached DII lacrosse at Queens University of Charlotte in North Carolina while practicing with the MLL Charlotte Hounds and currently help coach at my alma mater, St. Francis High School. On top of all that, I've also been a hockey goalie for 23 years and played on numerous travel and high level teams from high shcool to Juniors!
