DULUTH — Duluth High School announced Tuesday the hiring of Simon Mawson as the new head coach of the school’s boys lacrosse team.
Mawson was as an assistant coach at Mill Creek last season, where he served as defensive coordinator and helped lead the Hawks to a 15-4 record and the Area 4-AAAAAA championship. He also has experience coaching in college for Georgia State’s club-level program.
“Coach Mawson comes to Duluth with a passion for teaching and coaching lacrosse,” Duluth athletics director Chris Kirkpatick said in a statement released by the school Tuesday. “He has a great wealth of knowledge about the game and loves to coach young people.”
Mawson inherits a Wildcats team that has steadily improved, posting winning records the last two seasons, including a 9-8 mark this past spring.
“I look forward to bringing Duluth lacrosse to new heights and establishing the program as a power for years to come,” Mawson said in the Duluth release.
