ABOUT UA GIRLS' LACROSSE

Welcome to the home of the Upper Arlington High School Girls' Lacrosse Team.

The Upper Arlington High School Girls' Lacrosse Program began in 1983 under the sponsorship of UAHS faculty member and Coach Pete Corey. Tom Stout then led the Bears for five seasons. In 1992, Wendy Pinta took the helm of the UA Girls' Lacrosse program for the next fifteen years and led them to three state championship titles. In 2008, Lynda McCandlish, a UAHS and Northwestern University graduate, assumed the head coach position. In her first and only season as head coach at Upper Arlington, Coach McCandlish won the state championship. Lynda McCandlish also made Ohio history by winning the state championship as both a UA player (2002) and as a head coach (2008). From 2009-2011, Kim Rocheleau headed the Golden Bears, taking them to the state finals in each of her three years as head coach.

In 2012, the Golden Bears saw two of its former coaches return to lead the team. Head Coach Wendy Pinta (1991-2007) returned from a 4-year hiatus to coach youth lacrosse at Hastings Middle School and Executive Head Coach Sue Stimmel (1989-90) returned after a 23-year leave to coach collegiate lacrosse at Denison and The Ohio State University. In their first season as head coaches they returned the Bears to the state finals. In their second year, they led the squad to their first state championship in five years. This year they return again and hope to lead the Bears to another state title!

In 1993, Upper Arlington player Ashley Burkart was the first-ever UAHS girl's lacrosse player to be named All-American. Since then, 23 other UAHS players have earned All-American distinctions, and many others have been honored with All-Ohio and All-League awards.
