Mark Lisi set to retire
November 21, 2006
Mark Lisi, the longest-serving Metro, is set to announce his retirement, MetroFanatic has learned. Lisi, who joined the team in mid-2002, has spent the last four and a half seasons with the club, spanning the reign of five coaches, three GMs, and three logos. His best season was in 2003, when he tallied 11 assists in league play.
Unfortunately, in 2004, he started to miss lots of time with injury, and it was all downhill from there. Perhaps it was the strain of playing on FieldTurf, as his two groin operations were most likely a result of that. Lisi's last season was ravaged with injury, as he played in only nine matches, but still managed to tally assists in four consecutive games. He leaves Metro 8th all-time in games and 4th all-time in assists.
