79ers Board

Meet our Board



Sean Cairns - After standing on the sidelines for youth baseball, basketball, football, soccer and lacrosse for 7 years as a father of a 10 and 12 year old son, I was presented with the opportunity to get more involved with the 79ers. I hope to bring a new perspective and a new energy to the organization as the board Vice-President. The 79ers have come a long way in a short time and I want to help grow the organization and build on the solid foundation that is currently in place.

Vice President : 

Dave Burgan - I am in my fourth year of involvement with the 79ers organization; my son is on the 2025 team. We are part of the 79ers family because of the coaches; commitment to teaching skills, sportsmanship, and teamwork. I have coached travel/club teams for girls softball and boys basketball, and I understand the impact a club organization can have on more than just sports. I grew up in Baltimore, MD, where lacrosse is a way of life and I see nothing but opportunities for lacrosse in western Pennsylvania. My family has also been involved in Moon Area Lacrosse for six years. As Tournament Director, my goal is to find challenging opportunities for growth and competition.



Rachel McBride -  I have been a part of the 79er family since 2018. I have watched the program transform from 3 teams to 8 teams in just under 3 years. My oldest and has been a part of the program over these past 3 years and now my younger is joining as well.  I recently choose to take a role as the secretary to help communicate with our families and continue to support lacrosse in the south western PA communities. Over the years I have taken on small roles here and there and felt it was time to make it official. Here's to making 2022 season great!
