Lake Highland Prep head coach Chris Spaulding has resigned for family reasons, will relocate to upstate NY.

 

Excerpt:

Lake Highland Prep is losing the only boys lacrosse coach who has four FHSAA state championships on his resume.

Chris Spaulding, who compiled a 176-46 record over 10 years at Lake Highland, is moving his family back to upstate New York and taking a job with an insurance firm in Elmira, which is next door to his hometown of Horseheads.

“Our third child is on the way,” Spaulding said on Saturday. “This is a good opportunity to go back to the area where we’re from and be close to my parents and to my wife’s parents.”

Jeff Vander Meulen, a former Colgate University standout who was the top assistant for Lake Highland’s past 11 seasons of lacrosse, has been named new head coach.

Spaulding took over a one-year-old LHP program and constructed a dynasty. He led the Highlanders to the final four in each of the past nine seasons, with four titles and three runner-up finishes.
