Athens names new Men's Varsity Lacrosse Coach
December 28, 2012By Shannondoah Deaver of Athens Drive High School
Athens Drive Athletic Department announces Jacob Manning as our Varsity Men's Lacrosse Coach. Coach Manning was previously an assistant under James Cornicelli whose staff led the Athens Jaguars to their best ever season in 2012 with an appearance in the quarter finals of the NCHSAA state playoffs. Originally from New Orleans, Manning played lacrosse both in high school and started all four years as a goalie at Occidental College in Los Angeles. In 2007, Manning began a very successful tenure at East Chapel Hill as assistant coach which includes four straight NCHSAA state semi-finals and one appearance in the finals. Manning is looking forward to building upon the solid foundation at Athens and continuing their success last year to the championships this year.
