The Hilliard Predators were formed in 2015 and
will be entering their 3rd season. The travel club is for 5th and 6th grade
boys, as well as advanced 4th graders that want to excel in lacrosse.
With an emphasis on fundamentals, discipline, and strategy, the Hilliard
Predators ensure that their players leave the program ready to lead their middle
school programs to success.
The Predators are led by Coach Dave Ames who
founded the program with an eye on building Hilliard into a respectable
lacrosse community from the ground up. Ames was the associate Head Coach
at Dublin Jerome High School for 11 years. During that time, Jerome went to 7
state championships, winning 3 of them. He has won 2 US Lacrosse Boy's
High School Assistant Coach of the Year awards (2010 & 2012) and has sent
dozens of athletes to play Division 1, 2, & 3 lacrosse.
In 2016, the Hilliard Predators won more then
80% of their games. Attending at least 5 tournaments each year, the
Predators are a force in Central Ohio. The roster of 22 players spent 2
days a week in the winter sharpening their stick skills and offensive & defensive
concepts. The team is focused on giving back to the community and participated
in 3 different charitable events. In the spring, the Predators went
undefeated and won the Resolute Shootout 'B' bracket event and completed sweeps
of the New Albany Lax Jam & Bagattaway Medina tournament. They also
earned their first ever Ohio Cup 'A' bracket victory over a tough Springboro
team that had won the event the year before.
