Brian Oliver Named Head Coach for Wakefield School (VA)

Wakefield School is proud to announce that Brian Oliver will take over as boys' varsity lacrosse coach. Oliver has been serving as the middle school coach at Wakefield School and as Head of the Upper School. He brings 15 varsity seasons of experience to the job. His St. Thomas More teams won two Southeast New England championships, including a 23-game win streak and an undefeated season in 2001. Oliver's teams also finished as runners-up five times in the SENE during his tenure at St. Thomas More.

Brian played at Holderness School in Plymouth, New Hampshire, where he was a standout player selected to the All-NEPSAC Division I All-Star team as a senior. He played college lacrosse for Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut.

Paul Sipes, Athletic Director of Wakefield School, is excited about the hire, saying, "I am thrilled Brian will be our next coach. He has a track record of taking players of varying levels of experience and developing them to create great teams. He is a producer of overachievers and places players at excellent colleges, which is exactly what we are looking for at Wakefield. He is a perfect philosophical match for our athletic program and I think you will see an immediate and positive impact from him as a coach."

Oliver will replace Warren Shumate, who left Wakefield to take over as head lacrosse coach at his alma mater, Gordon College in Massachusetts.
