Adams 12 is starting a new boys lacrosse program at Mountain Range next spring, and the team has named Ethan LaHoda its first coach.

Adams 12 district athletic director Kylie Russell made the announcement on Tuesday morning.

"Coach LaHoda brings a wealth of experience and knowledge with him to the game of lacrosse," Russell said. "He is excited to build a winning program in the district predicated on hard work, family, and inspiring players to be better people on and off the field.

"Adams 12 Five Star Schools is excited about the return of lacrosse to our district and we look forward to coach LaHoda beginning his tenure with us," Russell said.

The program will be housed at Mountain Range.

LaHoda was most recently the junior varsity head coach at Monarch, serving in that role for two years. Prior to that, he was the defensive coordinator at Thompson Valley.

LaHoda played multiple sports at Monarch, and was named all-state in boys lacrosse in 2010. He played college lacrosse at Colorado State, where he was part of two MCLA national championship teams.
