Ward Melville High School head lacrosse coach Jay Negus has been presented with the Prep School Lacrosse Showcase 2018 Coach of the Year award from the National Interscholastic Lacrosse Coaches Association. 

In 2018, the 21-1, Ward Melville lacrosse team won its second consecutive Class A New York State championship. This was Negus’ fifth season at the helm of the Patriots. An alumnus of Ward Melville, Mr. Negus has compiled an 88-16 overall record since taking over the program in 2014.

“NILCA couldn’t be more excited to name Coach Negus as NILCA’s Prep School Showcase Coach of the Year,” said Ren Pettinelli, president of the National Interscholastic Lacrosse Coaches Association. “What Coach Negus has been able to accomplish in his five seasons at Ward Melville is truly amazing in this day and age. With so many great programs across the country, he has lifted an already storied program to a level such that Ward Melville will be at the top of the national polls discussions for years to come.”
