Shen coach under investigation for abuse complaints

The head coach of the Shenendehowa Lacrosse team has been suspended by the school district and is being investigated.  According to Shen's Athletic Director Chris Culnan, the district received complaints of abuse regarding coach Chuck Holohan.

Holohan had served as head lacrosse coach for 6 years, and was the freshman coach for 3 years before.

Lacrosse players were questioned individually this week.  After those interviews, the district suspended Holohan for what was determined to be verbal abuse.

Culnan says the district will likely decide if Holohan will stay on as coach by this weekend.  Boys varsity lacrosse will play again on Saturday.

Jason Gifford has been named interim head coach.  He was the assistant lacrosse coach for five years, according to the athletic director.
