Severn boys lacrosse coach Jamie McNealey has stepped down to become the director of athletics at Calverton School in Huntingtown.

McNealey, a 1987 Severn graduate, spent the past two seasons in his second stint as coach there.  After inheriting a team that went 6-9 and 0-9 in the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference in 2015, the Admirals went a combined 28-15 in McNealey's two seasons -- including an MIAA A semifinal showing in 2016.  He previously coached at Severn from 1999 to 2003.

"It was a gift to be able to come back for the two seasons, and everyone gave everything they had. I had a phenomenal time with the kids.  The program is alive and well, and the kids know everything is right in front of them."

McNealey is looking forward to the new challenge at Calverton, a K-through-12 private college prep school.  He said it gives him a chance to reach more student-athletes in various sports.

Severn AD Julian Domenech praised McNealey's work at Severn.

"We're thankful that somebody of his caliber took on the position and gave us two good years.  He did a great job, and the kids really bought into his personality and enjoyed playing for him," he said.

Domenech added that the search for McNealey's replacement has begun and anyone interested in the job can reach him at 410-647-7701, ext. 2284, or by email at j.domenech@severnschool.com.
