St. Louis University High School has announced Andrew Toussaint will serve as its new head coach for the varsity lacrosse team. Toussaint, a former college standout, brings extensive coaching experience to an already robust lacrosse program at SLUH.
"We are excited to have Andrew as our new head coach," says SLUH Athletic Director Chris Muskopf '91. "His experience, passion for the sport and desire to create positive experiences for our lacrosse players, with support from the likes of returning varsity assistant Sterling Brown [full-time faculty at SLUH], new varsity assistant Sean Meagher [SLUH Class of '10, collegiate player at Robert Morris, current MLL player with Florida Launch] and longtime JV assistant Stephen Casey [SLUH Class of '98] will make an already strong program even stronger."
Following graduation from Georgetown Preparatory School in Maryland, where he excelled in lacrosse, Toussaint continued his playing career at St. Mary's College of Maryland. There he was recognized as the Capital Athletic Conference Rookie of the Year and a three-time, First Team All-CAC. In addition, he graduated as the school leader in points and assists, and was selected to the CAC Silver Anniversary Lacrosse Team.
Toussaint's coaching experience includes stints at St. John's College High School in Washington, D.C. (assistant coach, 2002-06); Club Blue Lacrosse in Maryland (head coach, 2007-08); Georgetown Preparatory School (assistant coach, 2007-11); and at SLUH (assistant coach, 2012-14).
"I'm very excited and humbled to be named the new head lacrosse coach at SLUH," says Toussaint. "It is a unique opportunity and I am very much looking forward to meeting the members of the SLUH community and getting out on the field with the players."
Toussaint inherits a SLUH lacrosse program that has won 100 games in the last six seasons. During that time, the Jr. Bills reached the MSLA final four in all six seasons, including one championship in 2012. Toussaint replaces Tyler Gilbert, who led the SLUH lacrosse program for two seasons, including a second-place MSLA finish in 2016.
