Good news. All signs are indicating that the Washington-Liberty High School varsity girls lacrosse team will indeed have a qualified head coach before the season begins next month.
In recent days, nearly two dozen applicants have applied for the opening of the vacant head coaching position at the school. That void occurred when the previous head coach left in recent days to take the same job at another nearby high school.
That left the W-L girls lacrosse community in a bit of a panic, with practice for the spring season set to begin this month. The vacancy was advertised and talked up in the lacrosse circles a good bit, and many applied for the position as a result.
Meaning, the team should have a qualified coach in place and be in good hands, not with some stand-in to basically supervise, which was plan B, C or D if someone qualified could not be found in time.
Again, that apparently will not happen, and is good news.
