This past Friday night, the boys lacrosse program and athletic department were able to honor Head Boys’ Varsity Lacrosse Coach, Jeff Fritz for his 25 years at Winston Churchill High School. During Coach Fritz’s 25 years, he has won over 250 games while impacting the lives of hundreds of Bulldog athletes. A nice tribute was put together by the lacrosse parents and athletics department that featured honoring Coach with a plaque and a paver to be placed in the stadium. Dr. Joan Benz then shared with all attendance how much Coach Fritz has meant to this school, the community, and herself. We are so very lucky to have Coach Fritz on staff and are extremely grateful for all that he does for our student athletes. Thank you Coach Fritz & we’re expecting to have you around for another 25 years!
Coach Fritz Bio:
