|I started coaching boys lacrosse in Dublin, OH in 1998 and girls lacrosse for MYLA in 2014. My favorite lacrosse playing memory was at Ohio State when I had the opportunity to compete against top teams including North Carolina, Notre Dame and Penn State. Watching the growth and development of the girls that I have been able to coach through the years is something that I have enjoyed and proud to be part of. One of my favorite memories from MYLA was winning the girls middles school 2018 Westshore League Tournament in the final seconds of play. Beyond coaching, my goal has been to promote and grow the sport in Medina. I was fortunate to be able to start our 1st and 2nd grade coed program three years ago which has grown rapidly with the support of the association. The future of MYLA is bright and I am looking forward to accomplishing new things with the league including starting a more formal summer league and expanding our free clinics and programs.
