Drew May has stepped down as coach of the Worthington Kilbourne High School boys lacrosse team.

May spent 10 seasons with the Wolves, including the past eight as head coach.

“My professional responsibilities have changed and between my work and my family, I no longer have the time to effectively lead the lacrosse program,” said May, who works for Columbus Metropolitan Housing Authority. “I have been given added responsibilities at work and I have a 2-year-old son at home.

“I think it’s best that if I cannot give 100 percent to the program, that would be cheating those boys. That’s something I would never do. I want to give the boys their best chance for success.”

May guided the program to its second state title in 2016, when the Wolves went 8-10 in the regular season but reeled off six wins in the postseason, including an 11-7 victory over Toledo St. Francis in the Division II state championship game.

Kilbourne, which won the Division I state title in 2009, finished 11-11 last season after losing to top-seeded Watterson 7-6 in four overtimes in a regional final.
