O’Dea Lacrosse: “There is no substitute for hard work.”

The O’Dea High School Lacrosse Program began in 2014 under the leadership of Drew Snider, quickly becoming one of the premier programs in Washington State.  After the inaugural season, the Irish were moved from D2 to D1 due to their progress in year one.  At the end of the 2016 season, the team competed in the D1 state Quarterfinals. The Irish finished the 2018 season in exceptional fashion, winning the Private School State Championship to earn the first state title in program history.  The Irish went on to win a second Private School State Championship in 2019. Lacrosse is now coached by Will Snider.

The success of the program is in large part due a commitment to a high standard of excellence by both players and coaches.  Roll Irish!
