He helped start the program and during that time Thunder Lacrosse has grown to full Varsity and JV teams that compete in the KCMGLA girls Lacrosse league. Each year both programs have won more games than the prior season. 5 players have already won scholarships to play lacrosse for next season in college through the program.
