Pin Oak Boys Lacrosse 2020-21 Season
Congratulations to everyone for a successful start to the school year! We are excited to share some updates for Pin Oak Boys Lacrosse (POBL) for the 2020-21 season. There is obviously a lot of uncertainty with how the school year is going to work out, but we are still planning on having our Fall Clinic starting in late-October/November and our season starting in January. POBL is a club sport and we have a close partnership with the school, so we will be coordinating our program with the school opening and the approach the school is taking to extracurricular activities. As soon as we have more certainty, we will share updates.
As most of you know, our head coach for the past three seasons, Huntley Kent, is stepping down. Coach Kent has done an amazing job developing our program and we would like to thank him for all of his tireless contributions—all of which he has done on a voluntary basis.
We are very excited to announce our new head coach is Mr. Austin St. Denis. Mr. St. Denis is the 8B History Teacher at Pin Oak. He is a POBL alumnus and he played lacrosse at Episcopal High School and The University of Oklahoma. We are very fortunate to have Mr. St. Denis take on the head coaching role. It is great for the program to build a closer relationship with the school and to have a coach who has come out of the POBL program. Welcome, Mr. St. Denis!
Sandy Hellums was formerly heading up the POBL parents group, but she is moving on as well. We want to thank her for her leadership. Edwin Rodriguez has done an amazing job managing all of the finances and uniforms and we are very fortunate to have him for another year. Our current parent group who is organizing the program is as follows:
Seth Tyler-Andrew Tyler 8B
Edwin Rodriguez-Sebastian 8
Mickie Turner-Charlie 6
Dana George-Luke 6
Please let us know if you have any questions about the program. We will be sharing more information and arranging a parent meeting on Zoom once we know more about the season. In the meantime, please share this note with anyone who may be interested in joining the team, particularly any 6th graders. Go Chargers!
