Bill Leahy has been the boys’ head lacrosse coach at La Salle College High School (Wyndmoor, Pa.) since 1992. In that time he has won a total of four state championships, with two of those coming since Pennsylvania sanctioned the sport in 1999. He won the 2004 and 2008 state titles when all the teams in the state competed for one championship.
Leahy has posted an impressive win-loss record in his career. Through his first 24 seasons, Leahy’s teams only lost 99 games. His teams have never lost more than eight games in a season.

LaxRecords.com aims to compile the best known records in high school lacrosse. Among the lists are the most career wins by a high school lacrosse coach. Also included are most career points, goals, assists and saves by a high school lacrosse player. Team performances for most state sanctioned championships and consecutive wins are also tracked.
Some records are known to be incomplete. I solicit help from the lacrosse community to fill the missing gaps. If there is a performance or player missing, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or send me a Tweet at @LaxRecords.
