Three days after helping the Ohio Machine to its first Major League Lacrosse championship, Dominique Alexander was named coach of the Olentangy High School boys lacrosse team.

Alexander, 26, replaces Zach Peterson, who resigned in June to become an assistant principal at Olentangy Liberty.

Olentangy athletics director Jay Wolfe announced Alexander’s hiring on Twitter on Aug. 22.

Alexander has been a midfielder for the Machine since 2013. This season, he had no goals and four assists in 13 games as Ohio went 9-5, defeating the Denver Outlaws 17-12 in the MLL final Aug. 19.

A native of Baldwin, New York, Alexander played for Ohio State from 2010-13 and ranks seventh in program history in assists (48) and 10th in points (95).

The Braves went 15-6 overall and 5-2 in the OCC-Buckeye Division last year, losing to Liberty 13-6 in the Division I, Region 2 final.
