Lausanne Collegiate School named long-time Lynx assistant coach Wayne Kelley as the new head coach of the girls' basketball team.
Kelley has a long history at Lausanne. First joining their staff in 2003 as the Tech Support Specialist, Kelley now serves as the Director of Technology. Kelley was previously the girls' basketball coach from 2003-2012, with the team winning state and regional championships in 2008 and a Division II Invitational championship in 2006. The Lynx were also state runners-up in 2009. Kelley also served as an assistant coach in 2020 and 2021.
Kelley replaces Sara Barham, who left Lausanne after a year because of a job transfer by her husband, Drew Barham.
"It is unfortunate we had to lose Sara, but I'm looking forward to continuing the momentum she built," Kelley said. "She had this program poised to do great things."
Kelley has already begun his duties as coach, with summer workouts currently underway.
"I am looking forward to this challenge of moving this program forward," Kelley said. "We are going to continue building a program others look to and respect, not only for what we do on the court but how we conduct ourselves in the classroom."
"Impacting these student-athletes in a positive way is the main goal," added Athletic Director Kevin Locastro. "Sports does a good job of teaching life lessons and we want to make sure they are better people both on and off the court."
