The new girls lacrosse program in Adams 12 has a new coach.

Horizon athletic director Marty Tonjes, whose school will house the program, announced that Andreya Johnson will serve as the team's first coach.

"We're extremely excited to welcome Coach Johnson as our new girls lacrosse coach," Tonjes said. "She has a strong background in lacrosse, has a strong passion for the sport and our student athletes, and is thrilled to lead our program."

"Our community is very excited to have this opportunity for our female lacrosse players and I'm excited that Horizon has been chosen to lead all of these student athletes," Tonjes said.

Johnson has previously coached lacrosse in the New York area. She has also coached basketball, softball, track and volleyball.

"As someone who is originally from the East coast, lacrosse is something that will provide an opportunity for athletes to learn a sport that can transcend beyond the field and into many facets of their lives," Johnson said. "I believe strongly in all students, at all schools within the Adams 12 school district, and am looking forward to working with our athletes in this new endeavor."
