Holava joined the Virginia Wesleyan University men’s lacrosse staff in the Fall of 2018. The Syracuse, N.Y. native brings a plethora of lacrosse knowledge to the program. Prior to joining the Marlins, Holava spent five years as the head varsity boy’s lacrosse coach at Catholic High School. Growing up in Central New York, Holava was in a lacrosse hotbed. He played at SUNY Cortland, a Division III powerhouse, which saw the team get to the NCAA Championship Final Four once and the Quarterfinals twice. After three years there, he transferred to Virginia Wesleyan and was part of the inaugural program in 1991. That season he not only led the conference in scoring but also set the former DIII record for assists in a game with 11. In his second year with the Marlins, he was named 2nd Team All-ODAC and was chosen to represent VWU in the 1992 North/South All-Star game. Holava has also served as the Commissioner for HRLAX, the Boys HS Lacrosse league in Virginia Beach. He is currently on the Board of Directors for the US Lacrosse. He is active in his community and coaches numerous youth and travel teams.
