Siris finished his final season at MCCC with a Region 19 title following a 12-8 win vs Sussex.  Siris earned his second Region 19 Coach of the Year honor.  The Vikings were also GSAC (Garden State Athletic Conference) Champions this season. In addition to six MCCC players earning All-Region 19 honors this past season, sophomore Luke Vando was named the Region 19 Offensive of the Year and Co-Region 19 Player of the Year.  Siris also coached the 2022 Region 19 Defensive Player of the Year, goalie Thomas Cassucio.

In four seasons at Mercer, Siris coached 18 All-Region 19 performers, two Region 19 Players of the Year, two Region 19 Offensive Players of the Year, one Region 19 Defensive Player of the Year and one NJCAA All-American.
