Young Harris College Lacrosse Program Founder Kirk Rogers Steps Down
Young Harris College is an up and coming Division II program with a lot of potential. The Director of Athletics at Young Harris released a statement today in regards to the sudden departure of the men’s lacrosse coach Kirk Rogers:
“Over the past five years, Coach Rogers has served as the head men’s lacrosse coach and compiled an overall record of 30-29. I truly appreciate his commitment to building a strong men’s lacrosse program at YHC, his tireless work ethic, and putting YHC on the map for men’s lacrosse. I wish Kirk only the best as he has decided to embark on new career opportunities and spend more time with his family at this time in his life.”
Rogers introduced the lacrosse program to Young Harris College in 2012, and has served as the men’s lacrosse coach since its induction. Over the past four seasons the Mountain Lions saw a rise each year in total wins, from just 5 in their inaugural year to 10 this past season.
Rogers released his own statement saying, “I am excited to start a new chapter in my life and spend more time with my family and my fiancée,” said Rogers. “I will continue to follow the Young Harris lacrosse program from afar. I know what they are capable of and I expect great things.”
For now, assistant coach Forrest MacConnell will serve as interim head coach of the men’s lacrosse program.
