Fort Worth All Saints announced Tuesday that it will be starting a boys lacrosse program for the 2021-22 school year.

The school’s coach will be Hayward Lee from St. Mark’s — the winningest coach in state history.

Lee, who has also coached at Episcopal School of Dallas, is a five-time state champion and five-time state runner-up in the Texas High School Lacrosse League, according to a news release from All Saints. Lee is the only head coach in state history to win THSLL state championships at multiple schools.

Lee had a record of 200-58-1 when he retired after the 2013 season, according to LaxPower.com. He returned to coach lacrosse at St. Mark’s in 2017 and is 48-25 over the last five seasons. He took over as the school’s football coach in 2019. He

Lee is a two-time recipient of THSLL state coach of the year award. The North Texas Lacrosse Officials Association created the Hayward Lee Award in 2015, given annually to the coach who “brings the most honor and sportsmanship to the sport.”

The Texas High School Lacrosse League website says that the league has 90 unique programs, 169 teams, and more than 3,500 boys participating. It lists 32 varsity teams from the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
