Westlake Girls Lacrosse Seeking New Coaches

The Westlake girls lacrosse program, coming off its second consecutive US Lacrosse Postseason Invitational championship, is seeking a new head coach and at least one assistant after the resignation of coach Kennon Broadhurst.

Broadhurst coached the Warriors to a 15-20 regular-season record the last two seasons, but both seasons ended with tournament titles for the five-year-old CIF program. He and his family are relocating to the East Coast due to a job change.

“Kennon did a great job, and very I’m sad to see hm go,” Westlake Athletics Director Brad Katz said, “but he’s doing what’s best for his family, and you can never question a someone for that.”

The Westlake girls lacrosse program is beginning to hit its stride, with 45 girls in the program last spring. The Varsity team went 8-9 and earned the No. 1 seed in the US Lacrosse Postseason Invitational, eventually defeating Peninsula for the title. The junior varsity team was successful as well, going 8-1-1 this season, and Katz is eager to get a new head coach on board quickly to keep some momentum going through the offseason.

The coaching position is walk-on only, with no teaching position attached.

Interested applicants should send a letter of intent and resume to Brad Katz, Assistant Principal of Athletics, via mail at Westlake High School, 100 N. Lakeview Canyon Rd, Westlake Village, CA, 91362, or via e-mail at bkatz@conejousd.org. Please include in your letter your coaching philosophy, your view on the role of athletics and your resume of teaching and coaching experience.
