East Grand Rapids HS

Greg Tanis, Head Coach

Through the years many players have gone on to play college ball at schools like Johns Hopkins, Notre Dame, Colgate, Gettysburgh, Haverford, and Miami of Ohio, along with area schools like Alma, Calvin, Hope, and Western Michigan. The team is currently coached by Greg Tanis, an EGR graduate, who has successfully led the team through three seasons, including a state championship in 1999. EGR currently has teams at the high school, junior varsity, freshman, middle school, and youth levels.

The EGR Lacrosse team was founded around 1984 and has since become a perenial powerhouse. They won their first state championship under Coach Mike Schanhals. The teams was awarded a new trophy case at that time and the coach got a romantic getaway for his self and his wife. After a year off they once again captured another championship in 1996 under Coach Jim Dart.

Rockford HS

Andy Sharp, Head Coach

The Rockford Rams are entering their third season of play, with two years of growth under their belt. The team began in the minds of several students and quickly became a reality. With the help of Calvin College Coach, Jason Heerema and their current Coach, Andy Sharp they have grown into what should be a tough competitor for the class C crown. The squad has continued to grow with the help of several highly dedicated players. They will be adding a junior varsity squad in 2000 and hope to add middle school and girls teams in the upcoming years.

Calvin College

Jason Heerma, Head Coach

The Calvin College has been around for quite a while and has become the most consistently fairing college team in the region under the direction of 6th year coach, Jason Heerema. With the help of road trips around the midwest along with treks to Messiah College in Pennsylvania for the Holy Wars the team has gained the attention of students from their community and created quite a fan base. Just this past year they expanded their program with the addition of a womens squad as they continue to grow in hopes of becoming a Varsity Division III program in the near future. For the 2000 season they have an experienced group of Freshman joining the team which should make them a tough team to beat.
