Her father, Larry Thomas, started the lacrosse program at Lower Dauphin and coached high school boys for 10 years. Coach Meredith started off playing men's lacrosse until a women's program was started at Lower Dauphin. She also played collegiate lacrosse at Kutztown University and then returned to LD as an assistant and then a head coach for the women's program. She was selected as Central Penn women's coach of the year during her time as head coach at LD. She has a step-son on 14u and another step-son on 12u, as well as a 5 year old daughter (who is often seen being her "assistant"). Coach Meredith shares that she is really excited for this season!
14U Tim McConnell
Coach McConnell, originally from Altoona, PA is also a veteran of the Army National Guard. He has coached almost every sport/activity that his kids have been involved in - including t-ball, soccer, baseball, softball, basketball, flag football, mountain biking, and lacrosse! Unfortunately, lacrosse was not available where Coach grew up, but he played many other sports. Coach McConnell and his wife Jen, have five children - Hannah, Emma, Ben, Jake, and Sarah. He coaches to share his love of sports with all players and to be able to spend additional time with his kids. He wants the boys to learn to work together as a team - no one player is ever able to win a game by themselves. Additionally, all kids can and should learn that they control their attitude, effort and the way they treat others. Coach McConnell loves getting to coach each of his kids and being able to see them and their teammates improve from the beginning of the season to the end!
