Per multiple sources, Lexington Catholic (Ky.) has hired former Missouri Baptist player Devin Mayer as their next head boy’s lacrosse coach. Mayer’s hiring comes after Matt Campbell stepped down following the 2019 season.
Mayer- a 2018 Missouri Baptist graduate- played three seasons as an attackman for the Spartans. He started his college career at Rockhurst in 2015 before transferring to Missouri Baptist prior to the 2016 season.
At Missouri Baptist, Mayer was part of the programs transition from MCLA (Club) to full NAIA. He was named an Independent Second Team All-Conference twice and First team All-Conference once. He was also named the GRLC (MCLA) Player of The Year in 2016.
Now leading the ship at Lexington Catholic, Mayer takes over one of the premier high school programs in the state of Kentucky. The Knights are coming off a 2019 season in which they went 12-11 overall, 4-0 in their district, and lost in the CLL championship game to Henry Clay. Mayer will be looking to keep this program in its current upward trajectory and sustain the success the Knights have enjoyed in the past. In addition to their past success, the Knights do return some very good talent on both ends of the field.
With Lexington Catholic hiring Mayer, South Oldham is the only school in the state that is currently looking for a new head boy’s lacrosse coach.
