Poway Names Shaeffer to Head Boys Lacrosse Program
 

 

Poway High School has named former Cathedral Catholic assistant Tim Shaeffer as their Head Boys Lacrosse Coach.  Shaeffer joins the program immediately in preparation for the upcoming 2019 season, which begins with varsity and junior varsity tryouts in just over one month.

Tim Shaeffer grew up in Annapolis, Maryland, and was a standout lacrosse player for Annapolis High School, earning All-County, High School All-American, and Under Armor All-American honors. He committed to play Division 1 NCAA lacrosse at University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC) where he played for three years, starting at LSM and close defense in two of those seasons.  During his time there, UMBC won a conference championship and made an NCAA Tournament appearance.  At the conclusion of his junior season he transferred to the University of Maryland (College Park) where he was a close defender on the 2012 Terrapins team that defeated Lehigh, Johns Hopkins, and Duke before ultimately losing to Loyola in the 2012 NCAA National Championship game. 
After college, Shaeffer took over as the head Junior Varsity Coach at St. Mary's High School in Annapolis, competing in the MIA conference.  There, he was also the head coach of several club and rec programs including the Annapolis Hawks.  

Shaeffer moved to California in early 2018 to undertake a new professional opportunity in the Industrial Auction industry.  During the 2018 lacrosse season, he served as the Varsity 1st assistant and Head JV coach for the Dons at Cathedral Catholic High School.
When asked about his new position at Poway High School, Shaeffer responded with the following. “I could not be more excited to have the opportunity to be the head coach of the Poway Titans.  It is a tremendous opportunity to bring my experience as both a coach and player to a group of athletes fortunate enough to be part of one of the most prestigious programs in the state of California.”

Shaeffer takes over a strong Titans program following the departure of fellow UMBC alum Zack Burke to Westlake High School in Austin, TX.  Poway is coming off of its second straight San Diego CIF Open Division Playoff Final Four appearance in 2018 and won back-to-back San Diego CIF Championships in 2015 and 2016.  This year’s team, while young overall, features a strong core group including NCAA Division 1 commits senior Eli Butler (Wagner) and junior Marquez White (Princeton), as well as senior midfielder Austin Contreras, junior goalie Ben Looges, and junior defender Christian Vierra.
Coach Shaeffer’s Titans will open the season on March 1stat home against Valley Center.
