Posted:

ROSWELL, Ga. -- Fellowship Christian School has named Neil Solloway as head coach of the FCS varsity lacrosse team and Athletic Community Coordinator, Athletic Director Bryan Lindner has announced.

“Neil has tremendous experience at all levels of lacrosse as a player and a coach,” Lindner said “He brings more than 25 years as a coach and 35 years as a player to Fellowship. Neil is a proven leader who has coached at the collegiate, high school and youth levels.”

Throughout his career, Solloway has coached 35 players who were recruited to play collegiate lacrosse at Division I, II and III levels.

Last season, Solloway served as an assistant coach with the Paladin squad that finished 11-6 to match the school record for wins in a season in the school’s third varsity lacrosse season. He takes over for Andy Petrovich, who posted a combined 22-14 record in two years as the FCS head coach.

“I am extremely grateful and energized for the opportunity Fellowship has given me,” Solloway said. “I am excited about the future of the program, and am thrilled to continue the great work Andy Petrovich has done to help establish the Paladin lacrosse program. I look forward to working with our outstanding student-athletes and cannot wait to get started chasing a A-AAAAA lacrosse championship.”

Solloway also serves as director of girls’ lacrosse for True Lacrosse, a private lacrosse training and club team organization.

As a player, Neil has spent 35 years in the game at the collegiate, professional and club levels. Currently he is a member of the Mad Weasels, a local club team.

A Maryland native, Solloway came to Roswell this year after spending five years in Wisconsin.

Neil and his wife, Michelle, have two daughters: Carissa and Sarah.
