The Olentangy Liberty High School athletics department announced Aug. 16 that Tim Bosco will be its next girls lacrosse coach.

Bosco takes over for Nicole Stines, who stepped down after her third season. The Patriots went 40-15-1 under Stines, earning Division I regional runner-up finishes in 2017 and 2018.

Last season, Liberty went 16-3 with two of its losses to eventual state runner-up New Albany and the other to eventual state champion Upper Arlington.

Bosco, a former head coach of the St. Paul middle school and youth girls lacrosse programs in Westerville, is finance director of Highlights for Children. He also previously spent six years as the athletics director and as commissioner of football and lacrosse at St. Paul.

“We’re extremely excited to have Tim Bosco join our Liberty athletic family,” athletics director Darin Meeker said. “Coach Bosco is very passionate about girls lacrosse, and we look forward to having him lead our young ladies in taking the program to the next level.”
