Penncrest’s Meghan Magee has resigned as head girls’ lacrosse coach after six years to spend more time with her family.
Magee, who is expecting her first child, guided the Lions to a 9-9 season in 2012 and a berth in the District 1 playoffs out of gthe powerful Central League. The season featured a huge improvement from a 6-12 record in 2011.
“It is with mixed feelings that I am leaving the program,” Magee said. “I am deeply saddened to be leaving but excited for this next chapter in my personal life.
“It took me years to build trust and consistency from the girls and community and I am proud to say that I am leaving both behind for the next coach. Coming off of our most successful year yet, where we saw the playoffs for the first time in several years and became more competitive in the Central League, she/he will be taking over the most caring, fun, energetic, loving group of girls with endless potential and talent.
“They’ve given me an opportunity to do what I love most for the past 6 years and for that they will always hold a special place in my heart!! I wish them success both on and off of the field!”
Magee’s best season was in 2009 when Penncrest went 11-8 and reached the District 1 tournament.
Magee also was a coach at the inaugural Philly Girls’ Showcase in 2010.
