New varsity coach announced

Hartland High School announced on Aug 13 the hiring of our new varsity head coach, Deanna Radcliffe. Below is an excerpt from her email to the staff and returning players:

I am originally from Pennsylvania where I attended Temple University and played Division I lacrosse for 4 years. During my time at Temple I received Atlantic 10 Offensive Player of the Year, All- Conference team, All- Academic team, and Regional All -American. At Temple, we won 3 Atlantic 10 Championships and made 3 NCAA tournament appearances. I still continue to play competitively with a women’s travel team out of Chicago called Lakeshore Lacrosse. I hope to be able to utilize the knowledge that I gained from these experiences to help all of you reach your goals within the sport of lacrosse.

For the past 7 years I have run the Cyclones Travel Lacrosse program and was the varsity head coach at South Lyon High School. My overall record while at South Lyon was 98 wins, 20 losses, and 5 ties. I enjoyed my time at South Lyon, but am ready for a change and a new challenge.

When I am not coaching, I am teaching in Howell Public Schools. I am currently a special education teacher at Hutchings Elementary. I also recently completed my master’s degree from MSU in Sports Leadership & Coaching. I am very excited to have the opportunity to coach at Hartland. I will be in contact with you all again very soon to let you know about fall conditionings and lacrosse workouts. I am looking forward to the start of the 2013 season!

Thank you for your time and I look forward to meeting all of you very soon!
