Win with class, lose with grace
The lessons imparted through boys’ lacrosse at The Summit reach beyond competition, individual aspirations and team success: Win with class. Lose with grace. And always, always have good sportsmanship.
The 2006 Silver Knights won a state championship. Then, in 2011 and again in 2016, The Summit captured regional championships and advanced to the Division II state semifinals.
Coach Pat Collura has led The Summit’s lacrosse program since 2011 following nine seasons at St. Xavier High School. Well-known in lacrosse circles, Coach Collura was named the 2016 Ohio High School Lacrosse Association’s Division II coach of the year, the 2016 Miami Valley Conference lacrosse coach of the year and the 2016 Cincinnati Enquirer Division II lacrosse coach of the year. He was an all-conference player at Bowling Green State University, where he graduated in 1974, and has spent 26 years in the police force.
Coach Collura is assisted by David Smith, Brady Ward and Kevin Bissmeyer.
