Wendy Landry, who posted a 113-52-1 record and guided Unionville to consecutive state berths in 2009 and 2010, has been told her contract was not renewed for the 2015 season.
Unionville athletic director Joe Derrickson said no comment would be made on the dismissal because it was a district personnel matter.
Landry, a Unionville graduate who served as the JV coach for 13 years under Lee Krug before taking the head coaching job, was named the Daily Local News Coach of the Year in 2009 and 2010. Her 2009 squad (21-4) won the Ches-Mont League title and reached the state semifinals while her 2010 team (22-4) reached both the District 1 and state semifinals.
This year Unionville went 13-6 and reached the second round of the District 1 tournament.
Landry also coached at the ESPN Rise High School Showcase and served as a selector for the U-19 World Cup team.
“I loved coaching at Unionville and continuing the legacy that Lee Krug started,” said Landry. “I learned so much from Lee, not just about lacrosse but about life skills, competition, and being mentally tough.
“I’m thankful for the 21 years I had coaching at Unionville and the opportunity to pass on the Unionville tradition of lacrosse to other young women.”
