Combining skills, smarts, athleticism, toughness and leadership, the senior was the starting point of one of the finest defenses in the MIAA A Conference as the No. 3 Saints limited opponents to less than seven goals a game in their 15-2 season. A three-year starter, Gonos always brought the same high level of defense in containing the league’s top scoring threats. “He’s a tough kid and very, very smart. His understanding of angles and what we were always trying to do as a defense was big. [For opposing attackmen], he was extremely tough mentally to play against,” St. Mary’s coach Matt Hogan said. Gonos, also a member of the Saints’ B Conference champion football team, will play lacrosse at Harvard next year.
