Bryan Perry is going out on top. The longtime Cherry Creek boys lacrosse coach is retiring just after leading them to another championship, according to Bruins athletic director Jason Wilkins:
BIG NEWS IN BRUINLAND, Coach Bryan Perry has stepped down as the head lacrosse coach. Tremendous coach who molds young boys into men.
— WilkinsAD (@creeksports) June 12, 2017
Perry has been Cherry Creek's coach since the 2003 season, and ends his career with 258 wins. He also coached at Arapahoe from 1999-02.
"Bryan Perry will spend time with his family and will enjoy some well earned rest after 20 years coaching," Wilkins tweeted. "Can't thank him enough."
A 1987 graduate of the school, Perry led the Bruins to five state championships, including the Class 5A title this past spring. Cherry Creek beat Regis Jesuit to win the championship.
His teams also finished as runner-up in five seasons, meaning they made the championship game 10 times.
As it stands, Perry leaves the high school level as perhaps the boys lacrosse coach in the sanctioned history of the sport. He is believed to be the sport's all-time wins leader since it was sanctioned in 1999.
