Sammamish High School lacrosse program hires new coach

Received this in an email this afternoon and thought I’d pass it along: Sammamish High lacrosse hired Ian Lee to be the head boys lacrosse coach. Here’s the release in full:

BELLEVUE, Wash. -The Sammamish High School lacrosse program, which draws students from Sammamish, Newport and Interlake High Schools in the Bellevue School District, announced today that Ian Lee has been named boys head lacrosse coach.

A former NCAA Division III lacrosse player with prep roots in Washington state, Lee spent the past four seasons coaching at the collegiate and high school levels before being tapped for the Sammamish job.

Most recently Lee was at Mercer Island High School (2010-12), where he was an assistant on the Islanders’ 2011 Washington state championship staff after serving as co-head coach at Seattle Prep (2009-10). Lee previously was an assistant at NCAA Division III Messiah College in Pennsylvania (2008-09), his alma mater.

Lee is a 2004 graduate of Bothell High School. He played prep lacrosse for the Eastside Lacrosse Club, which has since grown into seven separate high school teams in the Bellevue area, before going on as a three-year collegiate starter at Messiah (2004-08).

In addition to his role as head boys high school coach, Lee will also serve as program director for the Sammamish club’s youth, middle and high school lacrosse teams.

At Sammamish, Lee replaces Tyler Farrar, who in the past two seasons compiled a 27-9-0 Washington High School Boys Lacrosse Association record, finishing seventh in the Division I Northeast Conference in 2012 and runner-up in the Division II state championship game in 2011.
