Archbishop Spalding head boys lacrosse coach Terry Mangan, 25, has resigned after two years at the school.
Mangan (10-15 in two years) is leaving Spalding to study for a master's degree in guidance counseling at the State University of New York at Stony Brook while living in his hometown of Lake Ronkonkoma, N.Y.
The Cavaliers (1-12 in 1989) improved to 3-9 in 1991 and 7-6 this past season under the former Roanoke (Va.) College goalie's direction.
"When I got there [Spalding], things couldn't have been much worse, but they were a great bunch of kids. Any lack they had in talent, they more than made up for in heart," he said.
Spalding barely missed getting into the Maryland Scholastic Association BB Conference championship game, losing to eventual champion Friends, 10-2, and runner-up Archbishop Curley, 6-1, in the final two games of the regular season to lose the berth.
