Experienced head coach needed for boys
By Chris Fish
BREVARD - Melbourne High School is taking on a new sport next season with the start of both a boys’ and girls’ lacrosse team.
Practice for the teams begins in late January 2013, and the first game will be in February.
Nicole Golden, a biology teacher at Melbourne High School, will coach the girls' team, but the school is still in need of a boys' lacrosse coach.
The teams received money through fundraising and donations and are not funded by the school.
"We are expecting 20 to 25 players for each team," said Norma Kreeger, treasurer of the Melbourne High Lacrosse Booster Club. "Everyone is really excited. We have raised $8,000 so far, and we expect to raise $20,000 by the end of the season."
Ms. Kreeger said the fundraising, overseen by the Friends of Brevard Lacrosse, will pay for the coaches, uniforms and equipment.
Friends of Brevard Lacrosse is an organization designed to raise awareness, funds and interest to support the development of lacrosse in Brevard County’s public high schools.
Ms. Kreeger said lacrosse is the fastest-growing sport in the United States and in Florida.
