Taylor McCoun Named Lacrosse Coach at LCA
LEXINGTON, Ky. – Lexington Christian Academy (LCA) today announced that Taylor McCoun has been elevated to the Eagles’ Head Lacrosse Coach. McCoun spent this season as an assistant coach with the program.
“I am thrilled to accept this position,” stated Coach McCoun. “I see great promise for this program and am excited to grow it into a state title contender. This season I worked with these young men closely and am excited about their abilities and their desire to work and get better.”
McCoun spent 6 seasons as the head coach at Henry Clay High School (2010-2016) after spending one season as a middle school coach at Morton Middle School. At Henry Clay he won three state titles (‘13, ‘15 and ‘16) and finished runner up in 2014. Additionally, McCoun has been very involved in youth lacrosse in the Lexington community. The Maryland native graduated from the University of Kentucky in 2014.
“We are excited to have Taylor head up our lacrosse program,” stated LCA Director of Athletics Terry Johnson. “He was a great asset to our program in his first year and created a great bond with our players. To have a three-time state championship coach at this point in our program bodes well for our future.”
McCoun replaces Ethan Atchley who headed up the program for the past two seasons. Atchley, who serves as LCA’s football coach as well, will remain involved with the program, but the move will allow him to dedicate more time to offseason football programs.
Johnson continued, “We asked Coach Atchley to take the program on a couple of years ago to get more kids out and take another step forward with this young program and that’s exactly what he did. But it’s been tough on him as our football coach, to split duties. This move will allow him to commit much more of his time in the spring to off-season football activities and spend more time with his family”
