LAKERS ARE THE 2019 Oregon State CHampions!
A Message from the Head Coach
Dear Laker Nation:
Welcome to the 2019 Laker Lacrosse season!
Now entering my 5th season as Head Coach for LO Boys Lacrosse, it’s amazing how fast the time has gone by and how far this program has come. I couldn’t be more proud of this team. A Three Rivers League title and a final four state championship appearance in 2018 was a tremendous accomplishment but also served notice that our work was not yet done. Together, the coaching staff and players share a vision and journey that will lead us to the top of Oregon High School Lacrosse.
The 2019 lacrosse season promises to be one of our most ambitious challenges yet with the addition of several more top 5 teams on the schedule. Yet our players and coaches, motivated by the overwhelming success of the LO Football Team, have ramped up their commitment and dedication to embrace the challenges ahead. Buoyed by the leadership and enthusiasm of our very talented returning veterans, and a large contingent of energetic freshmen and new comers to the program, I am sure no team has worked harder in the offseason in terms of training and preparation.
As we continue our journey to the pinnacle of boys lacrosse in Oregon, I am inspired by the desire and effort of our players to compete with passion, pride and purpose everyday, whether on the field or in the classroom. These core values - passion, pride and purpose - are the cornerstones of our program and the Laker Way!
We would not be where we are today without great support. I want to give thanks to LOHS Athletic Director Brigham Baker, Laker Head Football Coach Steve Coury, Coach Ryan Shepherd, our very generous sponsors, the LO Boys Lacrosse Board and Steering Committee members, and all of our LO lacrosse families, friends and fans for your exceptional support, generous contributions and overall commitment to the LO Boys Lacrosse Program.
Today we hunt!
- Coach Gruen
