In 2012, Eastern was one of only six men’s teams in the country to be recognized with the NSCAA Team Ethics Award of Merit.

Eastern is the only public institution to be ranked regionally in the NSCAA New England poll each of the past eight years. Beginning with the final poll of 2007, the Warriors have been mentioned in the NSCAA New England rankings every week, finishing at No. 9 in 2013 and being ranked as high as No. 4 Oct. 15 and gaining mention in the national rankings. In 2012, Eastern was ranked no lower than No. 5 from the first through tenth regional polls. The Warriors were ranked as high as second regionally and as high as a tie for 12th nationally in that span.

Having coached at the premier level for the last 18 years, DeVito is currently coaching the NEU U15 boys.
