The Girls and Boys Track teams are looking forward to a great season with a good mix of rookies and veteran athletes. Over a dozen PACT Charter School athletes will be joining us through our co-op this year. Co-Head Coaches of the high school program, Cheryl Fregeau and Todd Manske, distance coach, Dennis Kuik, and Pole Vault coach, Jeff Davie, are thrilled to have a well-rounded and experienced staff returning.

We look forward to turning over leadership to team captains Jordan Hinrichs, Cooper Manske, Sidney Manske, and Lauren Conradi.


This spring will kick off the fifth season for the Legacy Trap Team. Leading the team is returning Head Coach Todd Foy.  He will be joined by assistant coaches Kurt Nelson, Ed Temp, Joe Hoffman, Lisa Delich, Chad Murdoff, Shawn Conway, Evan Domeyer, Roger Faulkingham, and Nate Temp. In addition, we are happy to announce the addition of Brian LaDoux, who is an NRA certified instructor and Gordy Vitek, Legacy and trap team alumni founding member and an Anoka County Sheriffs Deputy.

The team will shoot it out twice a week at their home range, Beaverbrook Gun Club.  Practice is held at 5:00 pm on Mondays while competition happens on Thursdays at 5:00 pm.  The competition shoots that occur every Thursday are virtual against other schools of equal team sizes within our conference.  Every team shoots on their home field but those scores determine weekly and season standings and performance.  At the state championship at Alexandria we are similarly grouped and performance there determines if individuals or teams make it to the State Tournament at Prior Lake.  Finally, if an athlete and/or team does well for the season and at the state tourney, they can then qualify to go the National Championship in Mason, MI.  The league has a perfect safety record.  Thru June of 2017, over 1 billion rounds have been fired in the league since its existence with not one safety incident having occurred.

Registration closes on March 15 and season begins April 2. Trap shooting is a club activity with a flexible schedule that allows students to participate alongside another spring sport. Our priorities are safety, fun, and marksmanship!  Learn More.

Spring Co-op Athletic Opportunities exist in Boys and Girls Lacrosse (9th-12th grade) at Andover High School. Registration is available through the host school’s Activities Offices.

Head Coach Arthur Crutch is over halfway through his first season as a Legacy Lion! When asked how the first part of the season has gone Coach Crutch said, “The first part of the season has gone well. I’m impressed with how the girls have responded.”

One of the highlights this season was the team’s win over New Life Academy just a couple of weeks ago. “We put a whole game together against New Life,” said Coach Crutch. The girls are learning to play together as a team, which played a huge role in their win over the Eagles. “Coming together as a team and watching everything click when we play as a team has been our biggest success so far this season,” mentioned Coach Crutch.

When asked about some of the team’s most impactful players Coach Crutch mentioned Erin Bredemus ‘18 and Abigail Palicka ‘19. “Erin is a great all around leader. She has truly learned how to lead this team and encourage these young ladies. Abigail has taught our team what perseverance looks like!”

With postseason play just down the road, Coach Crutch is excited is see his Lions make some noise. “The team is getting better as the season progresses,” said Coach Crutch. “I think we will shock some teams in the postseason. We are better than people think!”


The coaching staff for the Lions Hockey team has one word to describe this season: growth. This year’s team is truly learning what it means to not only grow as a hockey player, but as a person as well.

Growth takes time, which is why Head Coach Dan Olufson said it has been the team’s biggest challenge and biggest success so far this season. “A lot of guys are growing spiritually and they are all getting better on the ice,” said Coach Olufson.

One of the most impactful parts of the season for this team has always been their trip to Silver Bay for their annual holiday tournament – this year was no exception. According to the Lions coaching staff, “Silver Bay is a great bonding experience for the team. It always is, but we feel this year was truly special.” Not only were memories created off the ice, but they made a special memory on the ice as well when they took home the consolation championship!

With playoffs approaching, the Lions are preparing for an end of the season run. When asked what excites him about the remainder of the season Coach Olufson said, “More growth. People may be getting sick of that answer, but it’s the truth. I predict this team will work very hard for a playoff win this year and I think we are going to get it.”


Building. What a perfect word to describe what our boys basketball team is doing this season. With a new coaching staff, Head Coach Josh Olson is striving to build solid relationships with his players and encouraging his players to build solid relationships with each other. According to Coach Olson, this has been the highlight of the season so far!

“Our biggest challenge so far this season has been learning what it looks like to play as a team,” said Coach Olson. After losing a handful of seniors to graduation in 2017, this year’s squad has had to learn to play with each other – learn each others tendencies, strengths and weaknesses.

Despite this challenge, the team has learned what it means to keep pushing. This team continues to fight to get better day after day, which is why Coach Olson is excited for the remainder of the season. “I’m excited for what’s ahead and the growth we can still make as a team this season,” Coach Olson commented.

The Lions will start section play at the end of the month and they would love to see you in the stands rallying them to a playoff victory!

Posted by Legacy Christian Academy on Saturday, January 27, 2018

For the first time in recent years, Legacy took on the challenge of hosting a few basketball tournaments! Both were a great success!

On Saturday January 6th, the MS-White Boys Basketball team hosted a community tournament with participation from PACT Charter School, Davincii Academy, & traveling teams from Blaine & Centennial.  With some help from the HS team at the scorers table and in the concession stand we were able to host 9 games throughout the day. Legacy boys made it to the championship game and took 2nd place overall.

Then on Friday and Saturday January 19-20, they hosted the NSPSL Varsity Tier 2 tournament as the #1 Seed. In this league sponsored tournament, the team took home first place!

The team also took part in an MCAA Conference MS Tournament on Homecoming Saturday at New Life Academy, bringing home 2nd place once again.

As the MS-White team is Legacy’s MS traveling team, the boys have a slightly extended season and will see a few more games and tournaments this month before wrapping up their season during the final weekend of February.

Check out the basketball page for their schedule of remaining games as well as some highlight pics from all of the Middle School boys teams this season!



On Tuesday, January 16, the Sports Center was packed with youth Boys Basketball players who were ready to cheer on this year’s varsity team! The youth players got a glimpse of what the big stage is like by sitting behind the bench and meeting the players following the game at an autograph session!
