Jimmy Borell has been hired as head coach at Loyola High School after a long tenure with Palos Verdes.
In his most recent season at Palos Verdes, he led the Sea Kings to an undefeated 5-0 season in the Bay League and a 19-3 overall record. The 2019 season ended with a 12-6 loss to none other than Loyola (16-8 overall, 5-1 in Mission League) in the Los Angeles County championship game.
Borell, who was unavailable for interview at the time of publication, spent 11 years with the Sea Kings including nine as head coach. He led the Sea Kings to the L.A. championship game in each of those seasons and made it to the LA-OC championship in 2012, 2014 and 2015. The Sea Kings were a combined 56-2 in league play and 160-39 overall during Borell’s HC tenure.
Borell will take over at the school that has ended his season each of the last four years. The Cubs won three consecutive LA-OC championships from 2016 through 2018 and fell to St. Margaret’s in the 2019 championship game.
Borell played lacrosse at Lake Braddock High School in Virginia and the University of Maryland in addition to the Philadelphia Wings, San Jose Stealth and LA Riptide.
