Boys lacrosse

October 22, 2003|By Pat O'Malley | Pat O'Malley,SUN STAFF

Jamie McNealey has resigned as boys lacrosse coach at Severn after five seasons.

McNealey, who was 50-46 (.521) overall and led the Admirals to a school-record third straight appearance in the MIAA A Conference playoffs this past spring, produced 33 Division I players and 18 Division III players.

Thirteen players from his last team (9-10), which was ranked No. 8 in The Sun's final poll, received either scholarships or aid to play lacrosse.

"I am aware of my own strengths and weaknesses as a coach," said McNealey, a former standout defender at Severn and Johns Hopkins. "The time commitment required to move the program ahead is competing directly with family time and my graduate studies."

Severn athletic director Charles Duckett said the school will hire an interim coach from within for the 2004 season. A search will be conducted in the spring for a permanent coach.
