Lena Hanson

Girls Varsity Head Coach

Lena's involvement in our local lacrosse community spans 2 decades. She began her lacrosse coaching career at the 7/8 level when Lake Samm Lacrosse Club was still the Eastside Eagles. She moved on to become the first Lake Samm high school coach and was instrumental in growing the high school program. After taking time off when she had her second daughter, Lena returned to Lake Samm for a few years before moving on to begin coaching her own daughters in their youth sports. Now that her girls are getting older, she is excited to be back coaching high school and helping develop the Eastlake Girls Lacrosse program! For Lena, coaching is about teaching life skills through sports, and she feels most accomplished when seeing the growth in her players' maturity as an individual and as a teammate.

In addition to coaching, Lena teaches part time in the Wellness Department at Eastlake High School. She has lived and taught in this community for 17 years with her husband (also an EHS teacher) and 2 daughters. When not coaching, teaching, or spending time with her family, Lena can be found trail running, playing soccer, reading, and hiking.
