John I. Leonard football coach Wayne Monroe returns 

By Matt Porter

A brief bit of good news for John I. Leonard: its coach is back on the sidelines.

Tonight, Wayne Monroe returns after missing the preseason and first six weeks of the season due to elbow surgery.

Monroe fell in an on-campus accident Aug. 24 and suffered a broken elbow so severe he underwent elbow replacement surgery the following week. Monroe was not cleared until this week.

The Lancers went 3-2 under acting head coach Lou Gaudio. They visit Boca Raton tonight in the first of their three District 10-8A games.
