Queener Family Legacy
We want to give thanks and recognition to our parents who have coached and taught us (and many others) not only lacrosse but valuable life lessons. Coach Harry and Patricia Queener may not be coaching at some of our camps, but we have learned from them!
Harry Queener (DAD)
Harry played at Geneva High School in the 60s and immediately fell in love with the game of lacrosse. After Geneva Harry went on to play at Monroe Community College and Oswego College.
Harry began coaching at Penn Yan in 1985, prior to his first season as Head Lacrosse Coach the Mustangs had never had a winning season. Since Harry took over the Mustangs have never had a losing season and have won numerous Finger Lakes Championships, Section Five Championships, Regional Championships, and one New York State Championship as a boys lacrosse coach, and one New York State Championship as a girls lacrosse coach.
Harry's former players have gone to play for top division one, two, three and professional lacrosse teams.
Harry is the Upstate NY Lacrosse Chapter Hall of Fame for his legendary lacrosse achievements.
Patricia Queener (MOM)
Patricia Queener didn't grow up playing lacrosse. In 1995 when a group of girls wanted to play lacrosse and didn't have a team or a coach "Patty" stepped up! Learning from great coaches in the game of lacrosse and developing her own method, Coach Patty Queener went on to win the FIRST State Championship in Section 5 for ANY Lacrosse Team boys or girls.
Patty's teams have also won countless finger lakes, sectional, regional, and TWO New York State Championships.
Patty's former players have gone on to play for top division one, two, and three lacrosse teams.
