Ian Mills, the only coach in the three-year history of Notre Dame’s CIF lacrosse program, has resigned his position as the Knights’ head coach.
In an email Thursday to “a handful of lacrosse leaders/coaches in the West LA, Santa Monica and San Fernando Valley areas,” Mills wrote that he has offered to help with the school’s search for quality candidates in the area. He also provided some information about the school and program:
• Notre Dame High School is a private, Catholic, college-prep institution located in Sherman Oaks. NDHS has a rich athletic tradition which stems from an extremely supportive administration. Since starting the boys lacrosse program in 2016, the school has provided every resource requested in an effort to grow program participation and improve its overall level of competitiveness.
• The facilities are immaculate, including a brand-new turf field (with lacrosse lines and semi-permanent backstops), all turf baseball stadium (often used for practices) and a brand-new weight room located in the heart of the campus.
• The support staff includes two full-time athletic administrators, two full-time athletic trainers and a full-time strength and conditioning coach.
• The program finished 2018 with 50 total participants and graduated only two seniors. It will return all major statistical leaders in 2019.
