CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Harvard men's lacrosse assistant coach Adam Ghitelman completed his third season in Major League Lacrosse this past weekend by leading the Charlotte Hounds to an appearance in the MLL title game.

Ghitelman started 15 of 16 games in goal for the Hounds and posted a 12.09 goals against average while saving 50 percent of the shots he faced.  Charlotte went 7-7 in the regular season to earn the fourth seed for the MLL Championship Weekend, and earned the team's first ever appearance in the championship game with a 17-14 upset over the top-seeded and undefeated Denver Outlaws. The Hounds' championship bid fell just short, however, as the squad lost to the second-seeded Chesapeake Bayhawks in the title game.

Ghitelman is a three-year MLL veteran who has appeared in 32 career games, including 24 starts. Originally drafted by the Denver Outlaws in the eighth round (45th overall) of the 2011 MLL Collegiate Draft, Ghitelman was acquired by Charlotte in the 2012 MLL Expansion Draft (30th overall). The Cold Spring, N.Y., native appeared in all 14 games of the franchise's inaugural season and was a 2012 MLL All-Star Game selection.
