Chapel Hill offensive tackle picks the Pack.
Chapel Hill, which won the N.C. High School Lacrosse Association state 4-A titles the past two seasons, returns five starters and eight lettermen, but has a new coach, Bob Cappelletti.
“We’re rebuilding,” Cappelletti said. ”We’re rebuilding with a new coach and a new system. That can be tough.”
Cappelletti is no newcomer. He has coached at Durham Jordan, East Chapel Hill and Cary.
Cappelletti has some talent to build with, including all-state midfielder John Haus, a Maryland recruit who is the son of former North Carolina coach John Haus.
Attackman Kevin Hornik has signed with Lynchburg College and 6-4, 210-pound defender Drew Stoltz has signed with Catawba.

Broughton defense shines in win over Chapel Hill
Three University of North Carolina football commitments played in Smithfield-Selma's 22-12 victory over Chapel Hill on Thursday.
Chapel Hill defensive tackle Jared McAdoo was very impressive. The 280-pounder was quick and powerful. He helped hold Smithfield-Selma to a net zero rushing yards in the second half.
SSS' runner, receiver and defensive back D.J. Bunn was outstanding. He rushed for 112 yards on eight carries and caught two passes for 48 yards. He had touchdown runs of 76 and six yards.
Smithfield-Selma linebacker Justin Dixon helped shut down the Chapel Hill offense. The Tigers rushed 23 times for 23 yards.
