Considering the amount of posts on the girls varsity lacrosse thread a dedicated Huntington thread is warranted.

WB game very frustrating to all Huntington parents. Just don't know what could have been done to win.

That's right, she completely favored her daughter (who by the way Just racked up awards like all tournament and all division at cortland, not to mention is their star defender going into the final four ncaa tourney). I hope she brings up the younger one because in case any of you didn't watch the playoff game, Huntington cant play defense! At least her daughter is fierce on D and gives her all every single time she's on the field which anyone could see from a jv game, she was one of the best players on the field by far which is pathetic considering she's a 7th grader playing with 9th & 10th graders. You people are all absolutely insane, why don't you go say this to the coaches face you cowards.

The reason you don't say it to the coach is that she will punish the player with limited or no playing time. The AD supports this action. BTW isn't it the coach's responsibility to teach and train the players to play defense if it is a problem?

Exactly! Why are these girls not being coached to play correct D? And there are girls on Huntington that can play defense! How about putting the player who is committed to Syracuse on one of WB's top players? Not saying that she would totally shut her down, but I'm sure she could have held one of them to a few less goals. KW has NO clue what she is doing and doesn't even seem to care anymore. She is a horrible coach and needs to go. How about the fact that she told our girls this week at practice to hit each other so hard that they bruise their teammates? I'm all about playing hard at practice, but who says that?

7th grade girls have no choice to be dirty because they have two of the worst coaches in the game. KW and JM should be banned - awful coaches who only focus on their kids and are true YJ trash.

Huntington wake up and do something about this. Your program is going downhill FAST. KW should stop coaching altogether. She'll pull her daughter up to varsity next year along with all her friends and that's a complete conflict of interest!!!! Take action now before this becomes even more of a disaster next year.

KW - do the smart thing and step down! Just sit in the stands and watch your kid play!!!!!!

You either do not have a daughter who plays lacrosse or are just spewing hate, because clearly you have NO idea about these girls. The 7th grade girls who are on JV belong there, they are as good as the players on that team if not better!!! The 7th grader who plays attack is by far the best player on the team. They are not dirty, they play hard, every game. Whether it is for their LISGL or JV. Get a clue and stop whining because your daughter didn't make the team or doesn't get enough playing time.

How easy it is to call out two women who dedicate their lives to teaching this sport to our girls. Not only are these two great coaches, they have given these girls a love for the game. I can tell you that both were my daughters' PAL coaches and the girls loved and respected them, and still do. The issues in this town have nothing to do with JM or even KW, they have to do with a small group of parents who have decided that their daughter deserves more playing time. They have decided to use this as a wedge between their child and the varsity coach. What people have to understand is this. She is the coach, she makes the decisions. If your daughter isn't getting time, there is a reason. Stop complaining. When an MLB manager or NFL coach doesn't play the player you happen to think is better do you write a letter to the head of the league??? NO, they have a job to do and you should respect them. Unfortunately, this group of parents thinks they know better, which they do not.

I can tell you I heard the same comment from every single person in the stands at the playoff game. Girls didn't play like they wanted it.

Heres a fair assessment: some parents should not and cannot coach their own children, for multiple reasons. I think that clearly applies here.

Why are you on BOTC? If everyone is such a coward, why don't you address everyone transparently? You're doing the same thing. People are upset and frustrated at the situation and you are engaging them in a contentious discussion. And you've criticized the girls' playing. Can those girls all really be that terrible? When they play on their club teams, they are recognized universally as some of the best players in the country. They are all going to really great schools. Perhaps the coach could be a bit more reflective about what works with the team and what doesn't. It is certain that sitting great players out and never giving them positive feedback, and telling teammates to injure one another is not working. Everyone knows what the goal is here- and it is really clear that it is more important for this coach to keep some particular girls from succeeding than having a winning season. She has lost sight of what true coaching is. I never imagined this game that we all love and have shared with our daughters and their teammates would become so awful and damaging. What a shame. Obviously you are close to KW and care about her, but it's not necessary to say how pathetic the high school players are. When your daughter is on varsity, she can prove herself with her skills. The difference will be that she will be celebrated and protected, but many other girls, who show up for every game, will not.

Does anyone think having a parent coach at the HS level is a good idea? I mean when that parent still has a young child coming through the system? I have to think that if that wasn't the case here, a lot of the problems would be alleviated.

It appears judging by the unbiased selection of Schoolgirls and the apparent favoritism those watching this team are accusing the coach of that this saga is just beginning.
I hope this results in players being treated fairly in the future and the club affiliation favoritism among coaches with an obvious conflict of interest goes away.

US Lacrosse has addressed this issue with unbiased selectors at schoolgirls tryouts. With that said the Team 1 goalie is the kid who sat on the bench most of the year for Huntington.

Just doesn't add up.

A three year starter who is always a solid contributor to the team has been replaced by a 9th grader with almost no stats who plays YJ. No explanation. Odd coincidence.

How do you put in your "second goalie" with zero warning and zero warmup into the game? You leave her for in for on goal - which was a 1 on 1 goal. Then call timeout and put the first goali back in?

Clearly a coach who has no clue how to handle goalies or coaching overall.

No offense but the reasoning of your post just does not add up. The starting goalie was ineligible to try out this year so if she had who knows what the outcome would have been. Also without rosters for school girls being posted its very difficult to see if there was any bias in the team selections. The coach of team 1 is after all an Elevate coach In the past every anti YJ person would have been on here with their conspiracy theories of why no rosters etc. if it was a YJ coach.

Funny thing is the team 1 schools girls goalie should not have even been at the tryouts in the first place( obviously the kid is well deserving of going to the tryout) . The wording in order to be nominated by your high school coach is a high level varsity starter, interesting .

Part of the problem is the parents in Huntington over inflated assessment of their kids abilities. What does "recognized universally as some of the best players in the country " mean. Recognized by who ? No offense but the travel team is universally recognized as middle of the road ,certainly not top tier.I get that many of them are going to some great schools but a lot goes into that other than lacrosse skill ie maybe a parent went to the school, maybe the kid would most likely get in because they are very good academically but were given no money just an early commit based on academics remaining high( a no brainer for the college coach because it costs them nothing). There are plenty of schools who have parents that believe they underperform because of the coaches you just don't have them on here whining about it.

You're right. It's funny- the majority of the team plays for the same club and there is no such drama there because the girls are treated well, never bullied, and taught new things about the game every week. These are very coachable girls but they need a coach who cares about the team, not her own travel club interests and the advancement of her own daughter.

The girls on the team are great kids. you obviously do not know them.

So youre saying that because KW never started the unc goalie she almost ruined her chance to play for schoolgirls team 1? As you said shes clearly deserving maybe one of the best goalies on the island. Who saved her?

No offense but the travel team is universally recognized as middle of the road ,certainly not top tier.I get that many of them are going to some great schools but a lot goes into that other than lacrosse skill ie maybe a parent went to the school, maybe the kid would most likely get in because they are very good academically but were given no money just an early commit based on academics remaining high( a no brainer for the college coach because it costs them nothing). There are plenty of schools who have parents that believe they underperform because of the coaches you just don't have them on here whining about it. [/quote]

1. If you saw how heavily most of these girls were recruited, by the top programs in the country, you'd understand "recognized universally." In no case, was the interest because of a parent or only academics.

2. People are on BOTC "whining" about the team's under performance because it is a direct result of the coaching. If parents from other programs feel the same way but don't want to say anything, that's their business.

3. These whining parents are taking the case elsewhere and trying as hard as they can to make change. This forum is just for discourse.

1)Were they more heavily recruited than girls from other travel clubs or even equally recruited as TG top team, YJ top team, MD top team, Skywalker top team, Capital top team, Steps top team. I understand Universally accepted and to say they are Universally accepted as some of the best players in the country is just pompous. Question for you , when some of those players moved clubs what level team did they make.
2) Amazing when a coach has so many of the universally accepted best players in the country and they are successful everyone says anyone could coach that group but when the team does poorly its always the coaches fault
3) sounds about right

You either do not have a daughter who plays lacrosse or are just spewing hate, because clearly you have NO idea about these girls. The 7th grade girls who are on JV belong there, they are as good as the players on that team if not better!!! The 7th grader who plays attack is by far the best player on the team. They are not dirty, they play hard, every game. Whether it is for their LISGL or JV. Get a clue and stop whining because your daughter didn't make the team or doesn't get enough playing time.


Wow... oversell your daughter much????

Not privy to the recruiting in other clubs, but if there is a recruiting class of about 8 girls for one college and the girls are widely sought after, I'd say that's fairly accurate. No one moved to other clubs. In this case it is the coach's fault. Sounds about right.

Credit due. That's where having nearly all the school players, play for the same travel club pays off. School teams kicks butt, travel teams not so much. The rest of the clubs and schools on LI operate on a much different model, clubs are hand picking the very top players from various school districts and those club teams are strong, for a couple top clubs anyway. Flip side is the school teams are not quite as strong. Fully in agreement that your school team rocks, club teams are not top end and know too many people done with the politics. Unfortunate thing is there is no where to go to get away from the politics.

sorry for my original post, hard to type on a train without my glasses. Not much drama or politics at Liberty, most peo0le are happy. One player with a loud mother didn't like the coach, other than that you don't hear anything. . Coach makes players better, she doesn't just see the talent , she cultivates it. Her club doesn't w8n every game, but all her girls are ready to play at a high level in college. Sometimes it's not all about wins and losses.

A product of the youth program as much as anything else (GC and WI success can also be attributed to youth program), too many PAL coaches are obsessed with winning and let 1-2 kids run the game to the detriment of all the others and then they wonder why they don't develop more quality players in HS. BTW you won't see any 7-8 graders from those programs playing on any HS teams, rarely see 9th graders, I wonder why...
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Huntington Girls Varsity Lacrosse - 05/19/15 02:19 AM
Your saying that the talent comes from a strong youth program, which Huntington has. Then you are also saying Huntington's PAL teams are
not good? Your post leaves me confused.

I hope this results in players being treated fairly in the future and the club affiliation favoritism among coaches with an obvious conflict of interest goes away.

US Lacrosse has addressed this issue with unbiased selectors at schoolgirls tryouts. With that said the Team 1 goalie is the kid who sat on the bench most of the year for Huntington.

Just doesn't add up.


No offense but the reasoning of your post just does not add up. The starting goalie was ineligible to try out this year so if she had who knows what the outcome would have been. Also without rosters for school girls being posted its very difficult to see if there was any bias in the team selections. The coach of team 1 is after all an Elevate coach In the past every anti YJ person would have been on here with their conspiracy theories of why no rosters etc. if it was a YJ coach.


There was not a single elevate selector at schoolgirls. Team coaches have zero input as to selections. They are simply handed rosters.

Can someone please explain to an outsider, in 100 words or less, what the story is here… reading these posts, it looks like some parents feel there is a coach with a biased towards her private/for profit club players.
Fact based questions: Is the Coach affiliated, i.e. gets paid for coaching or has a relative that plays for a for profit lax club. If so, which one?
Are there players on the team from that club?
Are there players on the team from other "competing" clubs?
Is there a policy at the school district forbidding coaches from engaging in for profit outside employment that would create the appearance of impropriety in relation to their coaching responsibilities at the school.
Give the full story please, no innuendo.

Thank you for being so succinct in your questioning;

The varsity coach gets paid to coach for Yellow Jackets.

There are players on the varsity team who play for Yellow Jackets.

The daughter of the coach also plays for Yellow Jackets.

This year a number of 7th graders from Yellow Jackets, including the coach's daughter, were pulled up to J.V.

There are players on the varsity team who play for Elevate.

It is a fact that some players from Elevate do not receive the same attention/playing time as some of those from the coach's travel club.

The varsity coach has been friends with the Yellow Jackets director since college, when they played together, and I think roomed together.

I don't know if there is a policy in the district about this conflict of interest and impropriety but parents deserve to have one implemented as soon as possible.

I'm pretty sure the Northshore HS coach was at the tryout, i beleive she coaches for Elevate. I dont know if she waas an evaluator though.

How many Yellow Jackets are on the Varsity team?
How many Elevate players are on the Varsity team?
Are there any other girls from different travel teams on the Varsity team?
As for the 7th and 8th graders who were pulled up, can you provide a breakdown of their travel team affiliations? Was it only yellow jackets that were pulled up?

Even I have to believe The Hop on selectors at school girls, he says he's on the board at long Island metro so I assume he knows who was selecting. On the otherhand he did say he was affiliated with Elevate

The Huntington issues have nothing to do with club teams! This poster has it completely wrong. It's of no bearing what travel teams any of these girls play on. When they are playing for Huntington High School, that's is their team!!! No one gives a care about yj or elevate or liberty it's a school team and the issues are within the school team. Stop trying to create more problems then we already have.

Exactly. It is an issue with a coach who bullies girls and does not know what she's doing when it's game time. She embarrasses girls by singling them out, tries to pin them against each other, messes with their minds and confidence, tells them to bruise each other at practice, etc.

She let two players score 14 goals without attempting to faceguard or even mark up on either. She watched her starting goalie make zero saves in the second half and barely gave the one going to UNC a chance. She didn't start a junior who was All-County last year and had 6 goals in the previous game - the player who took her spot did absolutely nothing in the game. Then when she finally put the junior in, she had her play midfield even though she is an attacker and had one of their best midfielders sit on attack.

^all of that in only one game makes me think that she has no clue what she's doing.

Just heard she told a bunch of juniors yesterday not to come back next year because she is making a lot of changes and has a lot of jv players coming up. That's nice. Don't come back to this public school team, to try and play a sport you've played since you were about 8 years old, because I am bringing my daughter and her friends up instead. Criminal.

Please tell me this isn't true!

Posted By: Anonymous Re: Huntington Girls Varsity Lacrosse - 05/20/15 01:26 AM
She tried face guarding the WB senior and it didn't work. Double and triple teams on her didn't work. They double teamed the junior and that didn't work. All defensive schemes didn't work in that game. Is that the coaches fault? Who knows. Your best player spent most of the game crying to the refs about calls and non calls until she got a yellow card late in the game. Again, is that the coaches fault?

They tried to double the ball but they never played the adjacent player, it is quite easy to beat a double that way. That player was wide open every time, why not pressure everyone closest to ball and have the farthest defender split 2 , pretty basic stuff. Sorry but that is the sad fact.

Exactly!!!! Anyone who is even a decent coach knows that. Let's not get off topic though because what parents and players are upset about isn't the fact that she's a bad coach (even though it's true and it's a problem) - it's the bullying. I am praying that the school gets smart and gets rid of her before her daughter and friends are pulled up to varsity. That will REALLY become a nightmare. No more parent coaches!!!!!

Maybe her and ESM coach both get removed in the same year. Would be good for all the young girls involved.

Let's understand something, KW is employed as a lacrosse coach by the school district. Except for a select few, the “coaching” services she has provided have been found wanting by the vast majority of those served and the issues have not been addressed. In any other employment situation, the employee would no longer have the position. The AD has failed to recognize the “coaching”performance issues, failed to manage the situation by siding with the employee rather than the community served, and failed the players because the players do not feel they have an advocate for them in the AD’s office. If this approach is the managerial oversight and leadership shown by AD, her tenure as AD should come to a close quickly. There are failures at all levels. A review of the whole chain is in order

This same coach was accused of bullying 3 years ago by a field hockey player. History is repeating itself.

I think you all need to speak with school board members. They are probably the only ones who can make this change. Sounds like it is needed.

I heard this has all happened in the past. (Within the past 5 years). It was brought to the AD and the school board and NOTHING changed. Now there is a colossal problem and people are fed up. This ball was dropped on many levels. There are paper trails and people coming forward who my have been afraid to speak up in the past. It is a sad situation and my heart goes out to these girls. They have felt helpless for the past few years. They have been bullied and manipulated with no one in authority willing to listen. I would be very worried if I were the AD or KW. This probably could have been handled quietly and in a dignified manner if they had both stepped down. I'm afraid for them that it will now become very public. What is going on with the school board? Why haven't they stepped in already?

Games over . Let it go, don't play next year in LISGYLL or for HS if abuse is happening
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Huntington Girls Varsity Lacrosse - 05/20/15 01:41 PM
Oh, so the GIRLS show quit playing the sport they love? Great idea! What didn't anyone else think of that? That's a great message for them. If you're being abused and punished already, quit doing what you love so the abuser wins. Game over, abusive coach should step down and let the girls who are coming back next year enjoy the rest of their HS careers.

"Bullying" is the most overused word of this generation. I'm not saying it doesn't happen or that it didn't happen in this situation, but please articulate what these instances of bullying consisted of. Unless, of course, you're just looking to anonymously disparage someone to further your own agenda using a hot topic buzzword.

With all this bad press, I can't imagine they will let this go on any longer.

Read all the posts. Not looking to further any agenda. These girls need to feel protected. This is how they have felt. The word is only overused if it doesn't apply to the situation. It applies to this one on all levels.

People have posted examples plenty of example of the bullying. Children's lives are being altered in a severely negative way. Please do not come on here and talk about people possibly furthering agendas or how to word is overused. Neither of those apply to this situation. This is serious and something drastic needs to happen so our girls can feel happy and safe again.

Seriously , and then you would be complaining when one of the two kids that killed you got the skip pass from the other one because she was wide open because the defender guarding her had "two". Some would have said just shut done the two big scorers and make the rest of the team beat you, but of course when the kid with 5 goals on the season scores 6 then that's bad coaching again. You lost because the two best players on the field took over the game and WB did not feel like they had to do the politically correct thing and spread the ball out, the WB coaches probably do not care about all the whiny parents saying this is a team sport and said lets force the ball to our big two.

What is really amazing is that KW is so out of her mind that she keeps digging her own grave with her comments and actions all while she is being investigated. Just goes to show how incompetent she is to be a coach.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Huntington Girls Varsity Lacrosse - 05/20/15 02:46 PM
I've read the posts. These 2 are the closest thing I can find to specifics:

"You can doubt it all you want, but yesterday she publicly shamed three of her starters in front of the rest of the team and told them how horrible they are and that she doesn't need them. Not a great team building strategy. Last year she allowed a bunch of girls to go on a trip over Spring Break- gave them all permission- and then when the team lost a game, she screamed and yelled at those girls and blamed them for the loss. She creates incredible conflict for the girls within the team."


"Lastly, I am sure this post will receive complaints from the same people who are OK with coaches who use bullying tactics on children and use their influence as coaches as a threat to college careers. It's not about yelling at kids because they make mistakes. It's bullying kids and belittling them on the field in front of their peers, their teammates and their opponents. How about you try coaching them instead of tearing them down? Imagine a teacher ripping a kids head off in math class because she got a question wrong and threatening to call the admissions officer at the college they are applying to "to tell them they are not good enough.""

Sorry, this doesn't qualify as bullying to me. On its face, these are just instances of holding players accountable. If she has a negative style, that's unfortunate, but so do lots of coaches - and many of them happen to be great coaches. Personally, I find the nepotism allegations more disturbing - if the kids don't belong.

It's not bullying when a coach makes starters stand on one line, non-starters stand on another, and then publicly shame the starters in front of the whole team? Then make two girls step forward and tell them that they are no longer needed, do nothing right, are a detriment to the team, etc. when those two girls were the heart of the team?

It's not bullying when she tells girls to bruise each other and hurt their teammates in order to "toughen up"?

It's not bullying when the girls college careers are threatened and when they are told that their coaches will be called because girls more deserving of those spots should have them?

It's not bullying when she allows her own personal agenda to get in the way of doing what's right - and therefore chooses players from the club team that she is paid to coach on (and that her daughters play for) to favor and then puts down all the other girls in the process?

It's not bullying when she makes a rule that the girls are no longer allowed to go talk to their club coach after the games, even though she is someone who has always supported them and is someone they can always turn to and feel safe with?

It's not bullying when she got angry that the girls were braiding their hair and screamed at them to shave their heads?

It's not bullying when she forces multiple girls to tryout for JV and then to just cut them in order to mask the fact that she just wanted to pull her daughter and friends up?

It's not bullying when she doesn't let a senior goalie - who is going to a division 1 school - step on the field basically the entire season, even in games where they were winning by 10 goals - and provide no explanation to the poor girl?

It's not bullying when she tells girls they are awful and don't know how to play lacrosse?

It's not bullying when she creates an environment in which the girls are scared and uncomfortable at every practice, and were relieved when the season was over because the bullsh** was finally over?

There are MANY more instances. These are only a few. These are WONDERFUL young women who should be enjoying playing the sport that they once loved - not dreading it. MAKE A CHANGE HUNTINGTON.

Well now I'm hearing that parents are going to the board and are hiring a lawyer. The district is making a mistake protecting this coach.

Yes, that was all I found that offered "specifics" on the behavior. Most of the posts are just bald accusations calling someone a bully or saying someone is bullying. If there are some I missed, just point them out. But saying she's "threatening" college careers and "belittling" players aren't specific either. They are your characterizations of the words spoken by a coach to her players. What was actually said?
I placed a call to the district. The AD, his first name is George (I didn't get his last name) asked how he could help me...I told him I was helping him and did he read what's being written...George says he and the Supt., and Board president do not read anonymous blogs, and he hung up the phone as I started to build this little tenured [lacrosse] an [lacrosse]...good luck with the district AD...maybe he's porking this coach? Ya' never know smile

It's not bullying when she tells girls they are awful and don't know how to play lacrosse?

It's not bullying when she creates an environment in which the girls are scared and uncomfortable at every practice, and were relieved when the season was over because the bullsh** was finally over?

There are MANY more instances. These are only a few. These are WONDERFUL young women who should be enjoying playing the sport that they once loved - not dreading it. MAKE A CHANGE HUNTINGTON.



Honestly the coach should just step down its not worth dealing with some of these overly hysterical parents, many of the things you state depend on the context in which they were stated. The bruising each other thing sounds a lot like a coach asking the girls to get more physical with one another in practice to simulate game physicality , run into the same problem with my daughters team they let the offense walk right in because they don't want to hurt each other.
The contradiction about the goalie seems to be that doesn't that goalie play for the coaches club team , the club that she so clearly favors anyone that plays for it, can't have it both ways. Maybe the school board and AD have done nothing because the parents are so emotional that its difficult to separate fact from fiction. When they do replace the coach hopefully they hire a coach with no kids in the district, no club affiliation, no ties to anyone with kids in the district and a lot of cheese, crackers and diapers to deal with all the whiny babies.

Looking for opinions
Girl is a non top 20 D1 commit. Makes Varsity but gets pulled into the coaches office and told "your past has caught up to you" because her parents had a couple of disagreements with the school 3 and 6 years earlier. She is told by the coach "if there is a single problem with you I will cut you out like a cancer". The girl herself is a hard working student that has never had a problem of any kind, she didn't even ditch on senior cut day. Girls on the team start spreading rumors about her (later to be exposed as untrue) and is confronted by one of the team "captains" and threatened, but is too afraid to approach the "coach" because she doesn't want to be seen as a problem. She practices hard every day taking shot after shot while her counterpart lackadaisically prances around the field only taking part in the drills she wants , and sometimes completely abandoning the position to socialize. The girl is never given the chance to compete in games (except 1).
My question is this. Isn't it the A.D. job to make sure that these people we entrust our kids to are not only keeping our kids safe, but treating them fairly and with respect? I have never seen the A.D. attend a practice, how could they possibly know how a coach is without seeing them interact with the kids? What are we paying these people for? I know I sound sappy , but why can't these kids be treated right while in school? I know some of you will say that that is the way the world is, and your right, but is it really the schools job to teach them that people can be cruel, isn't that our job as parents?

Then make two girls step forward and tell them that they are no longer needed, do nothing right, are a detriment to the team, etc. when those two girls were the heart of the team?
Depends on what precipitated it. Was it completely unwarranted? Calling them the heart of the team is an emotional characterization by you and really has no bearing on whether or not they were bullied.

It's not bullying when she tells girls to bruise each other and hurt their teammates in order to "toughen up"?
Telling the team to "toughen up" is not even close. Telling them to bruise and hurt each other, if those words were actually spoken, is definitely problematic.

It's not bullying when the girls college careers are threatened and when they are told that their coaches will be called because girls more deserving of those spots should have them?
Not necessarily. Did these college coaches reach out to the coach at some earlier point to get feedback on the player(s)? And did anything the player(s) did cause the HS coach to question what she told the college coach previously?

It's not bullying when she allows her own personal agenda to get in the way of doing what's right - and therefore chooses players from the club team that she is paid to coach on (and that her daughters play for) to favor and then puts down all the other girls in the process?
Not really coherent, but it doesn't sound like bullying. It sounds like a possible conflict of interest and you're accusing her of nepotism and favoritism. But not bullying.

It's not bullying when she makes a rule that the girls are no longer allowed to go talk to their club coach after the games, even though she is someone who has always supported them and is someone they can always turn to and feel safe with?
No

It's not bullying when she got angry that the girls were braiding their hair and screamed at them to shave their heads?
Were they braiding each others hair when she expected them to be doing something else? Sounds like this is going on at practice. If that's the case, definitely not.

It's not bullying when she forces multiple girls to tryout for JV and then to just cut them in order to mask the fact that she just wanted to pull her daughter and friends up?
How do you force someone to try out for JV? That doesn't make sense.


It's not bullying when she doesn't let a senior goalie - who is going to a division 1 school - step on the field basically the entire season, even in games where they were winning by 10 goals - and provide no explanation to the poor girl?
Not bullying.

It's not bullying when she tells girls they are awful and don't know how to play lacrosse?
Is this a reaction to mistakes (or repeatedly making the same mistakes) or mental errors? Then no.

It's not bullying when she creates an environment in which the girls are scared and uncomfortable at every practice, and were relieved when the season was over because the bullsh** was finally over?
This again sounds like your characterization. Some girls can't handle criticism and negative feedback makes them uncomfortable, but that doesn't make it bullying.

There are MANY more instances. These are only a few. These are WONDERFUL young women who should be enjoying playing the sport that they once loved - not dreading it. MAKE A CHANGE HUNTINGTON.

The bullies sound like the parents who can't understand why there kids don't play and don't win. Of course everybody and anybody can do a better job. So typical, and always the case, when a season doesn't turn out like expected. Ultimately the girls are responsible for the outcome. Sounds to me as if this team was maybe a little, or maybe alot overrated!
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Huntington Girls Varsity Lacrosse - 05/20/15 05:07 PM
It is absolutely the ADs job to keep the kids safe and to hire people who want to teach and nurture them. The world is a tough place but it is our job as teachers and parents to nurture kids so they have the confidence to face obstacles in the future. Tearing kids down and making them feel less than good enough does NOT prepare them for the real world. Hard work and positive reinforcement help them develop into confident adults. It is important to let kids know that it is NOT alright to be treated this way. Why do people choose to work with/for children if they don't have the right intentions?

Two major problems with your post:
1. These issues have been going on since before the season started. It had nothing to do with wins or losses or how the season ended
2. Almost all of the girls/parents who are unhappy are starters. Therefore it has absolutely nothing to do with playing time.

Get your facts straight.

Overrated? Who expected them to compete in this division? Huntington parents? I think they performed right on par with what was expected from a non Huntington perspective.

Yeah right! if they were still playing for the county championship, I'm pretty sure this crying wouldn't be happening. Funny how this thread got started , after they lost to a team that has arguably the best girl on all the island. She dominated them. It happens. That's sports. And keep making excuses why they lost, and keep crying foul. You parents are creating a scapegoat. That's a fact! Get a grip, and change your diapers. X

Have you read ANY of the posts from parents who are reaching for some help for the kids here. I have not heard anything about wins or losses as it pertains to the apparent behavior of the coach and her "tactics". I suggest you read even the most recent posts and comment accordingly.

Possibly Georgia McCarthy needs to be dealt with by her superiors. Perhaps the parents need to band together and take this to the State. Perhaps this type of behavior has been accepted for so long that they feel they are above caring for your children's welfare.
THEY WORK FOR YOU TAXPAYERS AFTER ALL.

KW is now coaching the 4th grade Yellow Jackets B team. I can't imagine these tactics would be tolerated for 9 and 10 year olds. Is she different with these young girls compared to the Huntington team? Has anyone seen her with the little YJ's?
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Huntington Girls Varsity Lacrosse - 05/20/15 06:45 PM
Her "tactics" are all speculative. Nothing proven. Perception is a dangerous thing. Everybody has there own way of looking at things. So get over it and move on!! I truly think this group of parents will never be happy. Just waiting for the next person to blame when your daughters aren't treated the way you expect. Good luck with that!!

What a shock! This KW person, BTW, what is her full name, being on board the Carol Rose train is painting quite an image to me of the situation.

Any way, what is this chick's name? KW.

What a shock! This KW person, BTW, what is her full name, being on board the Carol Rose train is painting quite an image to me of the situation.

Any way, what is this chick's name? KW.

I know in my district we had a coach who was terrible. It was another sport and bullying wasn't an issue but other things were. Parents talked to the AD for YEARS to dislodge her to no avail. There were two issues behind this:

1. she was a teacher in the district and blah blah blah. They can stay in a coaching job as long as they want it, no one wanted to ruffle feathers, she feels she has a handle on things now, etc.

2. it turned out the coach had a connection to the AD. Aha! It was one of those twisted "AD's mother was godmother to coach's aunt" kind of things, but that's how she got the job and that's how she kept the job. She didn't leave until it was her decision.

Huntington, it seems you've got a real mess on your hands, and it's going to have to become messier if you want to effect a change. You parents are going to have to escalate if you want results. ADs are there for the students but they are also there for their coaches, as it seems is certainly the case in your town. It is very hard to get rid of a coach if that coach does not want to go. Good luck.

I would be careful here, everything that is written on this blog is subject to the law. What you are all doing is libelous. You may think you are anonymous on this site but you are not. The false accusations you have made here are actionable. They can find out who you are. You can not defame someone's name because you are having a hissy fit because your daughter doesn't play lacrosse.

Oh, and by the way, for those who are complaining, lacrosse is a VOLUNTARY ACTIVITY. If your daughter can't take a little aggressive coaching tell her to stop playing.

There is nothing libelous here that I have seen. This all seems to be opinion. The district was contacted by me and they (Georgiana or Georgina McCarthy) declined to look at the site. She also stated that the board, supt., or herself do not read anonymous blogs. Do not be intimidated about being sued. The only person they know of is me and they won't start with me smile

That's really sound advice for someone who has aspirations to play in college!!! You cannot just quit your HS team and not have a college coach question that. That is a stupid comment. The responsibility lies with the coach to conduct herself professionally and as an adult. I have no affiliation with Huntington lacrosse but for you posters telling these girls to quit...that just makes you sound ignorant.

I thought the complaints on this thread were about the supposive tactics of the coach. Not about wins, losses or playing time. Guess not. Just about wanting to [lacrosse]. Btw you need good defenders to actually play defense. That was the problem.

Funny- a defender just told me that when she went into the game, she checked with both coaches and asked what defense they were running. Both told her they didn't know. Stop criticizing the players. They do what they are told and the coaches don't have a clue.

I do not know if any of fhese statements are accurate or not, but I think the post was accurate. Libel as defined within the law: To publish in print, writing or broadcast through radio, television or film an untruth about another which will do harm to that person or their reputation by tending to bring the target into ridicule, hatred, scorn or contempt by others. I just think folks should be careful to protect themselves. There are better and more constructive avenues to pursue in order to protect your children.

I'll stop criticizing the players when you stop holding the coaches accountable for everything that goes wrong on field. Players need to be accountable as well. You just want to rant on the coach. It's a two way street. Looking at their record the last two years something went right. Oh that was all the players when they won, I'm sure they weren't told what to then as well. Typical finger pointing from the same people. Yawn!!

No...you'll stop criticizing the players now.

The coach is an adult and an employee of a public school and therefore a public figure charged with maintaining the welfare of her players while in her charge. The opinions of the parents of these minors concerning her alleged behavior will be posted.

The only thing that went right is she was handed a talented group of girls to coach. This year the wheels came off because she is so clueless. The girls would have been better off coaching themselves- they know what to do. Coach sabotaged their success over and over again and then blamed the girls. But don't worry! She has big plans for next year! Already telling girls they are not wanted any more because her jv players are so strong! People have been talking about this conflict of interests for years and now here it is. Get ready Huntington. You think you have problems now? Wait until KW has all of her YJ superstars playing. Her moving this many 7th graders up was so unprecedented (and supported by our AD) that the board had to quickly pass a new law forbidding it in the future. What a nightmare.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Huntington Girls Varsity Lacrosse - 05/21/15 07:16 PM
First off, I would like to say that KW is a self-centered, heartless coach who solely acts for personal gain (i.e. exploiting the youth of our town, especially those in seventh grade who were forced to pay KW directly in order to try out for a high school level team). As a public school, this is extremely unfair because our girls should have an equal opportunity to succeed without digging into their own pockets. Secondly, it is to my understanding that individual meetings had been carried out with Coach W and the feedback is unsettling to say the least. It has been said that Coach W when on tangents stating that these teenage girls were "fat","nonathletic and worthless","Should quit the team and stop trying immediately", and "Should resort to a managerial position because the chance of playing will never arise". As a concerned party, I affirm that bullying to this extent should be carried out with the utmost severity and if terms such as those above were placed on social media or amongst teenagers we would discussing suspension or expulsion without hesitation.

The only thing being sabotaged is this coaches reputation, because your daughter and her club team friends didn't get the time you think they deserved. Your actions turning the small group of girls against there team, and there coach was so apparent and disgusting. Look in the mirror. Your underground network created this. Just what you wanted.

What is stated above regarding libel should be considered very carefully by this poster. The above rant is so far from the truth, it is an outright lie. First of all, we know who you are, and you don't have a daughter on the Varsity. Stop complaining because your daughter did not make the JV team. As an attorney, you should know better.

Anonymous,
I think your an idiot if you think it's ok for the person who said they will continue to criticize players because the coach is under scrutiny. Players are minors. Coach is an adult and public school employee. Further, I find it humorous that you accuse me of defending anyone's point of view when I simply defend their right to have an opinion. Big difference.

Also, I will defend anyone's right to call out someone who some contributors feel may be mistreating kids. In addition I'm suspicious of an AD who hangs up on BOTC owner Larry Miller when he calls to try and help shed light on an apparent run away train.
Lastly, you can take your conspiracy theory and suspicions somewhere else and maybe read some of the posts from many people with seemingly real concerns.

Hop,

You seem to be the one with a reading comprehension problem. I criticized YOU for joining with the PARENTS in criticizing this coach, I said nothing about any of the players (you can re-read my post). Also, you should re-read your posts, where you are calling out anyone who dares to defend this woman and encouraging these parents to seek recourse (frankly, if the accusations are true-I am sure they do not need you to tell them what to do).

As for your accusation that you feel compelled to call out anyone who is mistreating kids, well that's very noble, but do you know if these accusations are true? No you do not.

Also, why is Larry Miller calling the AD based on what is written on an anonymous blog? Why would she even dignify that?? She did the correct thing by not speaking to him. All districts have very strict policy's regarding speaking to outside sources including the media (which I hesitate to call BOC). This site is not Newsday, you don't deserve a conversation with the AD, nor should you get one.

Finally, but most importantly, I will assume you do not live in Huntington. I do. You read accusations on here and think you have an idea of what is going on. You don't. This is the work of a small group of parents that feel, for whatever reason, disenfranchised by this coach. The accusations of bullying, screaming, telling the kids they are no good. They are false. If you sat in the stands for a varsity game you would see this group of parents, but if you didn't see them you would be able to hear them and the venom they are spewing towards this coach. You would also see them give the 'solidarity' sign to their kids (who give it back from the field). They want her out, and they will stop at nothing to make that happen.

The bottom line is this. If it isn't this coach, it will be the next coach this group will have a problem with. Just because posters come on this site and say something does not mean they a) do not have an agenda b) are being truthful.

As for my conspiracy theory, I believe it's still valid. You never posted my earlier comments questioning your motives. However, after I changed my post you put it up. Only after I removed the part where I questioned your objectivity as it relates to a major advertiser on this site and how your affiliation with them may cloud your objectivity.

You have verbal diarrhea and your nuts.
For example;

First the elevate coaches are libeled then the parents are called stupid and ignorant then the players need to be accountable and their athletic talent is called into question. We now add to this the secret signs of solidarity that parents give to their daughters to put a hex on the coach and and finally the moderator of this site is part of a grand conspiracy. This has gotten beyond bizzare its becoming frightening.

True. It is frightening and sad when parents have there own agendas. And they won't stop short of anything to satisfy those. Let kids play, let coaches coach.
How people just can't do that is bizarre.

So what about when the coach is a parent? As in this case.

I just can't believe CR would hire her for 2023 B girls (who are just learning lacrosse) if she is as some of these posters say. If anyone "bullied" or whatever to a bunch of 9 year olds, that would not be tolerated at all.

No...you'll stop criticizing the players now.

The coach is an adult and an employee of a public school and therefore a public figure charged with maintaining the welfare of her players while in her charge. The opinions of the parents of these minors concerning her alleged behavior will be posted.


Hop, it is disconcerting that you, as the moderator, not only seem to join in with these parents, who are ruining the reputation of this woman with outright lies to further their own agenda, but are defending their behavior. Also, even more interesting is that I commented about this same thing yesterday and somehow it did not get posted to this thread. I am not one to believe in conspiracy's but that seems suspicious, don't you think??????


Anonymous,
I think your an idiot if you think it's ok for the person who said they will continue to criticize players because the coach is under scrutiny. Players are minors. Coach is an adult and public school employee. Further, I find it humorous that you accuse me of defending anyone's point of view when I simply defend their right to have an opinion. Big difference.

Also, I will defend anyone's right to call out someone who some contributors feel may be mistreating kids. In addition I'm suspicious of an AD who hangs up on BOTC owner Larry Miller when he calls to try and help shed light on an apparent run away train.
Lastly, you can take your conspiracy theory and suspicions somewhere else and maybe read some of the posts from many people with seemingly real concerns.


Hop,

You seem to be the one with a reading comprehension problem. I criticized YOU for joining with the PARENTS in criticizing this coach, I said nothing about any of the players (you can re-read my post). Also, you should re-read your posts, where you are calling out anyone who dares to defend this woman and encouraging these parents to seek recourse (frankly, if the accusations are true-I am sure they do not need you to tell them what to do).

As for your accusation that you feel compelled to call out anyone who is mistreating kids, well that's very noble, but do you know if these accusations are true? No you do not.

Also, why is Larry Miller calling the AD based on what is written on an anonymous blog? Why would she even dignify that?? She did the correct thing by not speaking to him. All districts have very strict policy's regarding speaking to outside sources including the media (which I hesitate to call BOC). This site is not Newsday, you don't deserve a conversation with the AD, nor should you get one.

Finally, but most importantly, I will assume you do not live in Huntington. I do. You read accusations on here and think you have an idea of what is going on. You don't. This is the work of a small group of parents that feel, for whatever reason, disenfranchised by this coach. The accusations of bullying, screaming, telling the kids they are no good. They are false. If you sat in the stands for a varsity game you would see this group of parents, but if you didn't see them you would be able to hear them and the venom they are spewing towards this coach. You would also see them give the 'solidarity' sign to their kids (who give it back from the field). They want her out, and they will stop at nothing to make that happen.

The bottom line is this. If it isn't this coach, it will be the next coach this group will have a problem with. Just because posters come on this site and say something does not mean they a) do not have an agenda b) are being truthful.

As for my conspiracy theory, I believe it's still valid. You never posted my earlier comments questioning your motives. However, after I changed my post you put it up. Only after I removed the part where I questioned your objectivity as it relates to a major advertiser on this site and how your affiliation with them may cloud your objectivity.


You have verbal diarrhea and your nuts.
For example;

I said "I will defend anyone's right to call out someone who some contributors feel may be mistreating kids."

You said "As for your accusation that you feel compelled to call out anyone who is mistreating kids, well that's very noble, but do you know if these accusations are true? No you do not."

See...not the same...C'mon.

This poster attached their comment improperly. The below comments are separate from the above. Try and properly post next time like every one else. It's really easy.


LMAO, What? Again could be wrong but seems the Elevate peoples smoking gun is the goalie situation and her favoritism of her club players .I believe the 3rd string goalie who is committed to D1 who rarely plays was YJ also so kind of puts that favoritism thing to bed. The AD not listening to the owner of this site who has a vendetta against YJ and voiced the theory that said AD may be "porking" the coach is just so unbelievable that they would ignore such a reliable and professional opinion. The Elevate crowd can be difficult to believe at times when they state none of the existing group left elevate to go YJ only to come back after they played a season with YJ2 , its easily verifiable that it happened.I like the Elevate parents and kids , very nice people and the owner is a descent guy but they have had unrealistic beliefs about the skill level of their teams for years.

This is not an Elevate issue. Some KW supporters and KW herself have tried to use this excuse. This is all about KW and how she has treated the girls. Don't try to deflect anything else. She owns it. Another key issue here is that the AD and the school were aware there were issues in the past and once new issues arose they did nothing about it. It will all come out over time.

If you're talking about the junior, she started at YJ and stayed for 2 years. Then she switched to Elevate. Not sure what you're talking about and that little detail cannot really be the only reason you can't believe anything anyone says. There is a sophomore who is new to the Huntington team who plays Elevate and if you're saying she played Elevate then YJ and then Elevate again (I have no idea because it's so uninteresting) doesn't that just say that ultimately Elevate was the better fit for that player? No one is trying to mislead you or stand in the way of your high-level detective work. Difficult to comment on the goalie situation because everyone knows how awful it was for 2 of the 3 goalies. KW single handedly ruined the 3rd string goalie's high school lacrosse experience. Let me know how you would have felt all these years as a parent (I am not her parent) watching while your daughter suits up for game after game and is never considered. If you think you'd just smile and say "well, the coach knows best!" you are not being honest. The same goes for all of the girls who never saw the field all season, but that goalie is a D1 commit after all.

So every time all of you haters have brought up the goalie playing time issue you believe it has nothing to do with club affiliation .So could it be the coach was playing who she believes gives them the best chance to win. What I find incredible in all this is the coach has been accused of multiple issues of abuse etc., if you believe these issues to be true, yet you continue to let your child play for her and be subject to said abuse. There is no way to justify that as a parent unless you believe these accusations are false or being completely blown out of proportion.In what other context would you actually send your kid repeatedly back into an environment in which you believed she was going to be abused, pathetic and transparent.

It's the yj parent trying to make it an issue! We know who you are.....transparent... Worry about your own daughter as you usually do when you are calling KW for advice and or more probable giving her the advice. Mind your business as this does not need your input... You are making it worse... As usual.

That's a nice thought, but many of the kids don't play. And in this case, the coach doesn't coach. The agenda people have is for all of the girls to have a positive experience on the team. That's it. It's not bizarre, it's simple.

to make it even worse, at YJ she's teamed up with the esm coach who's just as bad! i'm sure they both treat those little girls better than they do the hs girls.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Huntington Girls Varsity Lacrosse - 05/22/15 08:30 PM
What you all are failing to understand is that the group of girls that play on Elevate are not the problem nor is the coaching, the parents are. There was never a rift in between Elevate and YJ until Kotowski started coming to the games and badmouthing the coaches. What kind of person does that? He purposely created a rift to drive the parents apart, and drive the players away from their coaches, so he and his daughter could step in and use Huntington as a feeder program for their "Not for Profit Organization". Any person who would sit in the stands of a HIGH SCHOOL lacrosse game and yell at TEENAGERS is sick. The fact that the parents bought into it is even worse.

You want to talk about bullying? How about what those Huntington girls did to the coaching staff? That was pretty much the definition of the word. But you know what? You can't even blame the kids because they are just that, they're kids. That come straight from horrible parenting. What kind of women do you want your girls to grow up to be by teaching them this kind of hate? It's really very sad because this looked like a year that Huntington could really do something but there is only so much the coaches can do when they tell the girls something and then they go home and their parents are telling them to do something different. It's the same as not speaking ill of a child's teacher in front of them because then the child loses respect for them, it's just something you don't do.

Really all of you that come on this site and spew hate should take a good hard look at the kind of people you are, and more importantly the kind of people you want your daughters to be.

Stop trying to drag elevate into this. You are deflecting once again. The only reason the elevate coaches came to games was to show support to our girls because they were so upset all season long. It gave them comfort, that's all. Give it a rest. This has gone on before. People who have had problems in the past are coming back to voice their opinions again because nothing has been done to correct the problem. And this isn't just about the elevate girls either. Everyone was unhappy with the exception of a few and we know the reasons why. Bottom line is this, these are incredible, talented, intelligent girls, many have 4.0 GPAs or close to it. They are kind and caring and have awesome parents. They work hard in school and on the field. They just want to be treated with the respect that they deserve. Trust me, ask their teachers, when they are treated with respect they show it in return in great quantities.

He purposely created a rift to drive the parents apart, and drive the players away from their coaches, so he and his daughter could step in and use Huntington as a feeder program for their "Not for Profit Organization". Any person who would sit in the stands of a HIGH SCHOOL lacrosse game and yell at TEENAGERS is sick. The fact that the parents bought into it is even worse.

You want to talk about bullying? How about what those Huntington girls did to the coaching staff? That was pretty much the definition of the word. But you know what? You can't even blame the kids because they are just that, they're kids. That come straight from horrible parenting. What kind of women do you want your girls to grow up to be by teaching them this kind of hate? It's really very sad because this looked like a year that Huntington could really do something but there is only so much the coaches can do when they tell the girls something and then they go home and their parents are telling them to do something different. It's the same as not speaking ill of a child's teacher in front of them because then the child loses respect for them, it's just something you don't do.

Really all of you that come on this site and spew hate should take a good hard look at the kind of people you are, and more importantly the kind of people you want your daughters to be.



Wow!! Talk about making stuff up. You are delusional.

Could you provide some examples of some of the things Kotowski yelled from the stands? Did he use profanity or just outrageous comments or both? And please present your evidence of how the girls bullied the coach and how you know the parents told their daughters to disobey the coaching staff.Maybe this could shed some new light on this ongoing crisis

Please take this entire subject down its utterly embarrassing and Huntington will be watching the county final and if really think the AD gives a hoot of whats being said on a blog and if she didnt respond to Larry Millers phone call who in the world is Larry Miller, she has enough on her plate with these parents. The real teams dont have these issues thats why they call them a team. Period.
She took my call and was so flustered and off balance since she had got spoken to by someone she had no power over and she lost control.

I'm Larry Miller. I will write, post pictures, stream audio, post videos, FOIL their salary, and post whatever public information there is of anyone that I think is not being fair to children. You really don't want to call my bluff....

Presumptuous of you to say the goalies parents are behind the posts calling attention to the coaching issue. There have been many contributors to this topic so your ASSumption doesn't hold water.
The posters have commented on direct examples leading to their opinions and you simply post personal attacks. Those posts are quite immature and seemingly constructed while under the influence as judged by the run on thoughts, lack of focus and amazingly horrible sentence structure.
If you care to make an argument then be our guest but give it some substance. Also relax with the personal attacks and blind accusations toward particular parents unless you have proof.

I have no desire to see anyone lose their job. Coaching is a difficult task. I've played and coached at every level including college. I simply think people have the right to be heard because as you know if you have coached there are good ones and bad ones. I have an issue with you attacking people who may have a legit argument. Simple as that.

From Inside Lacrosse's write up on Under Armour:
"One of the most exciting goalies to watch all weekend, Moreno has the ability to clear the ball for what seems like a mile long — on the dime. A “wow”-type net minder, her saves and out-of-goal play are just flat-out fun to watch. Extremely athletic and confident in between the pipes, she’s one of the nation’s top rising seniors."

This is a goalie who didn't even play 50% of the time in HS. Shame on you KW.

A smart coach will play the best players when needed, regardless of their grade. It does so happen that the core players on the team are seniors. You obviously don't have a senior and just want to put them out to pasture, which is absurd.

Remember the district has to offer the coaching position to the teachers in the district first. You may wind up with a teacher looking to retire and pad their pension.

I don't normally troll BOTC except to look for upcoming tournaments but I saw this post and felt compelled to share our experience.

Kathleen Wright coached my daughter this year for Yellow Jackets. She did a fantastic job, gave the kids her all and really built a good team. She fostered camaraderie, had a great focus on skills and teaching the girls to not be selfish with the ball. She gave the kids a ton of her time once the Huntington season wrapped up, unpaid, because she was dedicated to her girls. We couldn't have asked for more.

I'm truly sorry some parents have had a bad experience with Kathy. However, not everyone feels that way. My daughter loves her. My family has the utmost respect for her.

Kind regards,
Ean Price

Posted By: Molly Burnett Re: Huntington Girls Varsity Lacrosse - 10/23/15 02:46 PM
Hello Parents,


My name is Molly Burnett. Most of you know me as the now ex assistant varsity coach at Huntington High School. I have been debating posting my input on this website for some time now and now that I have officially stepped down I am finding that it is the right time to do so. I know that most of you will probably skip right over this post, written by someone as “incompetent”, “terrible” and “dumb” as myself (your words, not mine) but if you do happen to continue reading this I urge you to do so with open minds.

As an alumni of the Huntington High School lacrosse program I was so proud and excited to be involved in coaching your girls, and to do it next to one of the best coaches I knew, Kathy Wright, just seemed to be the icing on the cake. Let me make something very clear, I truly do not care what you say about me on BOTC, I understand that many of you as parents just want what’s best for your daughters. If you think that I’m an “imbecile” or “horrible” that is your own personal opinion and you are entitled to that. What you say on this website has no effect on me whatsoever. However, the fact that you come on this website and anonymously slander someone as wholehearted as Kathy makes me sick to my stomach.

If you want to talk about a coach that goes above and beyond what is required of a High School lacrosse coach then look no further. Kathy devotes her entire self to a thankless job. I have been involved in the lacrosse community for close to two decades and never have I ever met a more kind, caring, selfless and talented lacrosse coach than Kathy. She truly cares about your daughters, not only as lacrosse players, but as people. She is one of the only coaches that I know to say “School and Health come first” and actually mean it and if you were all too jaded to see the gem that was in front of you then I truly feel sorry for you.

I will not go into what happened during this season, as if I were to name any of your daughters and their actions and their college coaches were to come across this that would be the end of their collegiate lacrosse careers. You all know what your daughter’s partook in, and to be honest, I’m not sure if I can entirely blame them. Children are a direct reflection of their upbringing and having parents that chose to come onto an anonymous website to bash the coaching staff instead of calling the office to arrange a sit down in regards to their concerns is obviously going to translate to the way your daughters chose to conduct themselves. The fact that some of you even promoted their actions and were directly involved with helping your daughter's slander the coaching staff leaves me to believe that no matter what coach was in our position, it wouldn't matter.

All of your girls are extremely talented, and the ones that are going on to play lacrosse in college all deserve to be playing for the teams they are. But parents, I am telling you, you are doing them a huge disservice by fighting their battles for them and promoting the kind of hatred that you spewed towards us this season. I ask of you to place your daughter in our shoes, how would you feel if grown adults were saying the things that you all said about us to your daughter. Imagine your daughter, fresh out of college and wanting to continue her lacrosse career by coaching. Imagine her in 30 years, married and with children, working full time and putting in countless unpaid hours for an underpaid high school lacrosse job. Now imagine her coming onto this website to see everything that the parents of the girls she is working so hard to help, to coach, to mentor, spewing the utter hatred that you have all done this past season.

As your girls head off to college I hope you, as parents, have the decency to sit back and let your daughter’s flourish into the amazing women that I know they can become. College lacrosse is a completely different animal and if you expect the coaches to baby your girls and tell them “everything will be okay” you are in for a rude awakening. In college, if you can't produce there are five other girls riding the bench that can. You need tough skin and an even tougher work ethic and without both of these there is absolutely no way to excel at the collegiate level. If you believe that calling the AD or the President of the college will make a difference then you’re right. It will make a difference in that your girl’s college coach will bench her based on principle alone. All of your girls have the potential to do amazing things, I just hope that during their collegiate careers they learn humility, mental toughness and courage that so obviously lacking on this website.

I am sure that after I post this there will be a number of anonymous comments calling me all sorts of things, and to those users that do not possess the courage to tell me what they think of me to my face, all I can say is that I’m sorry. I’m sorry that you have reached a point in your life where you feel that you need to feel good about yourself by anonymously posting about people who dedicate a significant amount of time, effort and money to making your daughters better lacrosse players, athletes and most of all better people. When push comes to shove and lacrosse is all over all that really matters is how you come out of it as a person, this is a lesson every athlete will learn at some point and when your daughters finally do I hope they can hold their heads up high and say with no uncertain terms that they are proud of the women they have become.

The next time you decide to slander a coach I urge you to read a great article, titled "I Am Your Coach. Not Your Mother." and if you still have concerns I beg of you to request a sit down with the coach and AD to discuss any concerns you may have.

Any coach worth their salt will take any problems or concerns you may have seriously, excluding the often used“I think my daughter is better so she should be playing,” excuse that so many parents believe to be a valid reason that their daughters should be playing. I assure you, every coach has a valid reason for who is on the field and why and I can promise you that none of it has to do with their outside teams.
To the parents and the players that supported Kathy and I during this past season, whether it be in the stands, on this blog or in general, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. You were truly a bright light during this past season and I cannot thank you enough. If there is anyone else who wishes to make derogatory comments about last years Huntington High School coaching staff, please feel free to call me on my cell. All your daughters have my number.


Best Regards,
Molly Burnett

This letter doesn't explain anything for me, clears up nothing, only added to my confusion over the bust of the season. just don't get it at all.


Ahhh, the "my daughter sat the bench" parent.


The coaches do not always get it right. I have seen it in our district in many sports. Sometimes it's political, sometimes they just get it wrong, sometimes its personal, sometimes the coaches are incompetent, sometimes the better player has an attitude problem.

In our district we have seen players leave and go to a private and have great success then go on to play D1 and also have tremendous success. We have seen kids stay and ride the bench and then go on to college and out perform just about all of the kids that played in front of them.

Some parents do not have a realistic view of their kids ability but there are also many coaches who do not play the best kids. The coaches do not always get it right.

Agreed BUT I find it mostly to be the latter.

I started coaching youth sports 15 years ago. I loved all sports growing up on Long Island. I have five kids and have coached football,soccer,baseball,basketball and Lacrosse.

When I was growing up playing sports in the 70's parents were not involved. We played for our school teams and respected our coaches !

Now, almost every parent has the thought that maybe their kid can get into a great college. So they buy into the club teams that have found that they can make a ton of tax free money by selling them a dream.

The parents and the money hungry club teams have changed high school sports.
They hear the stories of kids getting commitments in 8th or 9th grade and are willing to try anything to help their kids. The club teams know this and play the parents, milking them of thousands of dollars that should be put towards school related activities.

The parents get angry when the high school coaches don't play their kids after giving the club teams a ton of money so they stay on the sideline complaining and starting trouble for the high school coaches.

The club teams also try to influence college coaches to look at their players. The parents that are the best customers get the first looks. It has become a big money game !

I feel sorry for the high school coaches who are not in it for the money but because they just love the game !

Huntington's coach was also an outside lax club paid employee. Big part of the problem.

High schools must see the conflict of interest!!!

A high school coach should not be a paid employee of a club team!
It gives parents and players a reason to think they are not being treated fairly.

Am I the only person that thinks this is a conflict of interest ?
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Huntington Girls Varsity Lacrosse - 10/27/15 06:14 PM
I don't. I prefer a coach for my youth player that has the depth of knowledge a varsity coach has. What else would be the point of having a paid coach?

A high school coach can not make money coaching an outside league??? Besides the fact we live in a free society, how do you impose that? How much money do you think coaches make??? Not that much, if you do it for a paycheck there are much more profitable things to do. It's a year round thankless job, that you are only paid for the spring to do.

Very sad reading all this as an outsider. There are many HS coaches that work for the top travel teams island wide just look at their bios but you don't hear this kind of talk.
Don't you think at the end of the day they want to coach a winning team and maybe put a championship notch in their belt? To me, a winning coach makes them more desirable and in demand .They are certainly not coaching HS for the big payday.
This whole story makes no sense to me and I'm sure there's a few more tails to it just hope coaches and players move on and wish them good luck.

Dave is very good at stirring up trouble which is just what he did when he destroyed a very succesful 2012 team that his daughter played on a few years back. Maybe he will save the day and get someone from his club to fill the vacancy at Huntington.

I understand that you obviously thought your daughter was the better player, and she is obviously very good. However, did you ever stop to think that the goalie who played over her was also very good?? No, of course not, because you felt the need to destroy these women because you have a case of 'my daughter is better' Sad.

This site provides an outlet for people to voice their concerns.

There are many parents who feel that confronting a coach directly will only result in negative consequences for their child.

We all know that there are crazy parents out there who are not capable of honestly evaluating their children.

Hopefully we also know that there are more than a few coaches out there who do more harm than good.

I am not familiar with the Huntington situation but I cant listen to the whiny coaches any longer.

I have read many time on this site how the coaches are underpaid and how it is a thankless job. Every time someone writes a negative comment about a coach it is assumed that it was written by a parent of a player who is sitting on the bench. "Coaches want to win" "Coaches play the best players" "Coaches will be fired if they do not win" , all BS in my humble opinion. There are some really bad coaches out there and they should be removed.

There are coaches who will punish the player if they have a problem with the parent. There are coaches who allow their personal feelings to influence decisions. Some coaches are spiteful and vindictive. Some coaches are incompetent. Some lack character. Some are allowing money to create a conflict of interest. Some have thin skin and rabbit ears. Some post on this site. Some care very much what is written here. Some try and figure out what parents are posting on here. Some refuse to look in the mirror and give an honest assessment of themselves and the Job they have done.

If a conflict of interest was present and it had a negative impact on the Huntington Girls Program then shame on the coaches.

If there were crazy parents who drove the coaches out without cause then shame on them.

If the coach could not find a way to play a player who is "very good" then shame on the coach. (learn to manage the situation)

Here is a message to all the coaches out there.

Do the right thing. Do not coach for a Club Team, do not create your own Town Club Team. Do not become too friendly with ANY of the parents. Do not gossip about players or parents. Do not whine about the parents. Do not permit any parent to influence you especially regarding any of the players. Do not have pre conceived notions about players or parents.

Just go and coach. Leave your agenda and ego at the door, it is not about you it is about the kids. If you can not handle the crazy parents then do not coach.

The "Program" belongs to the kids, not the coaches. If your skin is thin and you have become bitter then find something else to do with your time.

I think a very basic rule would be no HS coaches that have a child in the same school district. This can be seen as the root of many problems. It's just too easy to point to favoritism, why would a school set themselves up for that? Every year you saw 1-2 more Huntington girls being added to this YJ team. It is just too intertwined. Parent coaches should end after PAL.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Huntington Girls Varsity Lacrosse - 10/29/15 08:48 PM
The truth is, people have been complaining about the coaching staff for several years now. The argument between people who think parents/players are being ridiculous and the coaches were out of line is never going to be solved - it is personal opinion. Here are some facts I do know:
- Some people loved Kathy, some really did not. Of the people who do not like her, they ranged from field hockey players, to lacrosse starters, to lacrosse nonstarters.
- That being said, I don't think this was a matter of a club team director doing this. There were complaints made before everything went down from this year. There were also complaints made this year from plenty of people who were not involved in the director's club.

- I definitely understand the argument about goalies when people state that the starting goalie was very good - I agree! With that being said, how could you 1. barely play a goalie headed to UNC and who is nationally ranked and 2. BARELY play a senior goalie who was also headed to play college lacrosse and definitely deserved some time on the field. I am not talking about tight games, I am talking about games that I watched where Hton was winning by 10+ goals and these two goalies did not see more than 10 minutes on the field.

- I commend the assistant for what she wrote in this thread to an extent. I thought it was brave to post her name and to address everyone honestly. What I found wrong was that she would belittle parents and players so much so when she knows that many (not all!) were good people who had honest points. Once again, NOT ALL - some were ridiculous. I also found it wrong when she brought up the negativity it could bring the players if she wrote their names, specifically mentioning their college careers. That, in my opinion, was a subtle threat. Once again, MY OPINION.

- All in all, it is a shame that this Huntington team was not successful last year. With the talent they had, I believe they could have gone very far.

I think we need to stop playing the blame game - crazy parents, ungrateful kids, awful coach - and just realize that the situation at Huntington was volatile enough that a change had to be made. For the girls sake, we should move past pointing fingers and hope that they can spend the rest of their high school lacrosse careers having fun.

The Huntington coaching staff just didn't have a plan . They mismanaged the starters horribly, and had the non- starters sit there at practice doing absolutely nothing every day. As a coach , you should have SOMETHING planned for all the players at practice. It's amazing to me that the bench players didn't quit . They were COMPLETELY ignored. There was no "mentoring" going on there for any of the players. It was laughable. Huntington needed a change.

Since when has a coaching become an underpaid thankless job? Coaching a team putting together a group of kids and watching them grow into a cohesive group and improving their skills is exhilarating. Many kids lives have been transformed by good and caring coaches. For some kids the best part of their day is when there on the court or the field with their friends and teammates. Winning is great and the ultimate goal but I've seen beautiful scenes of losing teams crying and hugging each other and embracing their coaches. Coaching can be a very fulfilling and rewarding experience but it can be tough at times and thats when managerial skills come into play but you can never blame the team under any circumstances for you are the coach, the captain of the ship, the ultimate responsibility lies with you. And if you have a problem with that, then it is an underpaid thankless job.

Hey maybe you are on to something. Let's take UNC for instance year after year they have a roster full of all American thoroughbreds. After all is said and done they have (1) National Championship. We are talking full time staffs and the very best of support systems. So maybe it takes more than talent and coaching to win. No Me ! Just We !

Probably some HS teacher that is getting ready to retire and looking to pad his/her pension. They will know nothing about lacrosse and will be looking for the season to end as quickly as possible because they don't get paid any extra for post season. Be careful what you wish for!

True justice. Huntington probably won't see a real coach until the current group of parents rotate out. Even if the parents are completely right, what coach wants to be involved in this kind of drama and deal with activist parents?

They had 11 D1 players and lost a playoff game to west Babylon that only had two kids on the team worth mentioning
