Below is the letter sent by the Westlake lacrosse booster club:

After seven years at the helm of the Westlake HS Boys Lacrosse program, Head Coach Dennis Ray has made the decision to step down.

Dennis has led the WHS Boys Lacrosse program as Head Coach since 2010. In seven years as head coach his teams posted 92 wins and captured four League Championships including three of the last four Marmonte League titles.

Under Dennis’ leadership, Westlake High School Boys Lacrosse has evolved into one of Southern California’s premier high school lacrosse programs, consistently producing NCAA DI, DII, DIII and MCLA college recruits. LaxPower consistently ranks Westlake among the Top Ten CIF Southern Section teams, receiving that distinction four of the past five years.

Please join the Westlake HS Boys Lacrosse Boosters in thanking Dennis for his years of service and extraordinary contributions and accomplishments. We will miss you Dennis and wish you all the best in your future endeavors.
