BASEBALL (Begins March 12th)
We look forward to having both a high school (9-12) and a middle school (6-8) program for the Spring of 2018. Our high school program finished last season with a state tournament appearance and a 2nd place state trophy. What a season! Varsity Head Coach Adam Hill is back for his 3rd year. He will be joined by returning Assistant Coach Ike Larson ‘13 and new Assistant Coach Nic Leibold ‘17. The Varsity team returns one starter and will be preparing new players who are eager to continue the LCA Baseball culture. Keys to their success this season include: Hitting, pitching, speed, and heart.
The middle school program will participate in the North Suburban Parochial School League and will be led by parents Ben Minks and Nate Lindholm. We are planning once again to utilize Strootman Park for practices (2:30-4:00 pm) and Andover Station North for games as needed. We will cap each team at 12 players so please register early!

BOYS GOLF (Begins March 19)
Varsity Head Coach Tyler Adams steps into his second season at the helm w/ Coach Ben Darling focusing on JV development and Coach Jake McDermott stepping in for his first year to assist.

All interested golfers in grades 7-12 should register early to be in the loop on uniform ordering and other pre-season details. Learn More.
GIRLS GOLF (Begins March 19)
Varsity Head Coach Dan Nelson continues to guide our lady golfers on the green with assistant coaches Jack Gray and John Compton (JV). As with the boys, The Links at Northfork will once again be our home course for practices and all Varsity events, while Majestic Oaks will be home for JV meets. All interested golfers in grades 7-12 should register early to be in the loop on uniform ordering and other pre-season details. Learn More.
SOFTBALL (Begins March 12)
The Softball program this season will be led by Coach Kendra Magaard. Coach Magaard joined the staff as an assistant last season and is eager to begin building the program up with Coaches Kate McLaughlin and Jayme Buchelt. Early interest indicates we could be fielding both a middle school team (5-8) and a high school team (9-12) for 2018! This is great news and as registration details are confirmed we’ll send out additional information of what that will look like as we move into the season. Learn More.
TRACK & FIELD (Begins March 19)
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. The middle school program will continue to compete in Anoka-Hennepin Middle School meets. We look forward to turning over leadership to team captains Jordan Hinrichs, Cooper Manske, Sidney Manske, and Lauren Conradi.
CLAY TARGET: TRAP SHOOTING (Begins April 2)
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.
