Bodwell named new Cheverus boys' lax coach

PORTLAND—Bill Bodwell, who led the Lewiston boys' lacrosse team to the Class A state final in 2011, will replace Deke Andrew as just the second coach in the history of the Cheverus boys' lacrosse program, the school announced Tuesday. Bodwell, who was named KVAC Coach of the Year in 2010 and 2011, inherits a team which made it to the Class A state final last spring.

“It is exciting to be part of the proud tradition of athletics at Cheverus,” said Bodwell. "Deke fielded competitive teams in his 14 years at Cheverus with a reputation for sportsmanship and hard work. This year’s coaching staff hopes to continue in that effort.”
